    This is speculation on my part based on rumors I have been hearing the last few weeks, but this latest e-mail from BBTS has me thinking that the whispers might be true. Similar to what has been happening in relation to Botcon 2012, is this sale a sign that the crackdown by Hasbro on 3rd party products is now hitting the online retailers that buy directly from them?

    Here is the e-mail from BBTS:

    "CLEARANCE SALE - THIRD PARTY TRANSFORMING TOYS - SAVE 25%

    Nearly every Third Party item currently in stock is now on sale at 25% off! Take a look through the product list and be sure to browse the full menus as well. There are some great deals here, including 25% off previous sale prices, so be sure to take a look. "

    What do you think? Is BBTS getting out of the 3rd party product business due to pressure from Hasbro or is this just another sale?

    If they continue to put up preorders, than its just a sale. If we don't see them put up any more preorders, than looks like their getting out of 3rd party items.
