Had this discussion going on another forum and figured I'd get the TFW take on this. I guess the basic question would be is Hasbro taking things too seriously with the actions they've taken against the unlicensed companies (I really hate the term "3rd party") or have the unlicensed companies gone to far with their infringement on Hasbro's IP. Personally, I was behind the unlicensed product back when it was just stuff that augmented existing figures. Things like the City Commander armor or the trailers for all the Primes that were released without them. I don't think Hasbro really cared about it at the time because you still had to buy a Hasbro product to use these upgrades. I think the reason companies like Fans Project have gathered the attention of Hasbro now is because they've entered into the territory of directly ripping off Hasbro's IP by producing toys of TF characters like "Warbot" (Springer) and the various "not Devastators". Things that would directly compete with what Hasbro has on the shelves. So TL R: Has Hasbro gone too far by taking action against these companies or have the companies gone too far by producing actual TFs rather than just add-ons?
