    Why aren't you guys asking whether we are going to get a Deluxe Leadfoot, or whether Elita-1 will see an actual somewhat accurate mold that is not a crappy repaint of Chromia?

    Why aren't we asking all the right questions?


    All I've seen at the Botcon is repaints after repaints after repaints OR exclusives and exclusives and exclusives. When did toy collecting stop being fun?
    It's fine we didn't get a Leader Blackout, or a Voyager Bonecrusher. Instead we get a million different Leader Bumblebees, Walmart exclusives, Target exclusives, repaints, etc. Why?

    Is that worm thing from DOTM going to have a toy form? Should it be made into a toy?

    Um, would Hasbro have answered these questions?


    No. They said all DOTM related shit will be shown AFTER the movie. And they said we are getting a Deluxe Leadfoot. Brand new mold.

    Nice.

    Did anyone ever dare to ask...about the bike sisters?
    I'll be honest with you. I really don't know which bike is which. I mean they are ALL Arcee. Arcee's TF1 proto was pink. Then she became red while Elita-1 (which was called Flareup, despite the fact that Elita-1 died in one of the prequels to ROTF, heck, TF1) is the pink one, and then comes Chromia. Then the HA toys that had bikes had the colors changed (Chromia for Arcee, Arcee for Chromia)... Like wtf is going on? And THEN we get news that they won't combine after being told for months that they would.

    What's really going on here?

    Um, do you really think Hasbro cares about ROTF at this point? No. The questions would have caused a response that fans would have been mad about, or Hasbro wouldn't have answered it at all.

    It has never stopped being fun for me. You might need to relax a bit. You may miss answers/info like Haloid1177 posted.

    Repaints are easy to do and make more money than new molds.

    And Bumblebee still sells like pure white crack to the little kids and their parents, that's why there are so many.

    As far as the bikes: Hasbro just named them however, and what they did for Movie 1 had no bearing on movie 2 at all, so any attempt to garner some greater meaning from how the bikes were named will only result in greater headaches.

    The bike sisters suck. Such ugly robots that I was glad they got blasted. I think the 2 molds we have now are 2 molds too many. I'd rather have another BB repaint then another one of them.

    agreed.

    I think a lot of people have this attitude of "Why do they make so many Bumblebee repaints...they suck. They should've made ______ instead"
    On the one hand I kinda agree with this, on the other...Hasbro's not stupid. If they had made an abundance of Bumblebee's in the first movie and they all rotted on the shelves and they CONTINUED to make billions of Bumblebee's I might think so. But after 3 movies I think they have the character mix pretty good for what they're selling. They make 13095432894320452409 different Bumblebees because they'll sell them.
    1) Kids love him
    2) Lots of collectors are completests..
    So yeah...lots of Bees are here to stay unless he loses favor...

    I love how certain members get all up in a tizzy when Hasbro doesn't show every single new product they have planned for the next year at Botcon or answer every single question exactly the way they want them to.

    Seriously. Look up the word patience.

    Can only speak for myself here, but...

    Because it's a likely assumption that we will.

    Because I don't care.

    Even if we accept the premise that those are the "right questions", what would it accomplish, exactly?

    And you forgot "where are the other three RotF Constructicons?", BTW. That's an essential part of a "why didn't/don't we get [various toys]" post.

    Never stopped being fun for me, but YMMV.

    So, did anyone ask when we will be getting the newest wave of Beast Machines figures?

    asking about elita-1 is pointless when they are less than a month from a massive marketing push with a new movie.

    Live for the moment and enjoy what we're getting.
