    Why do they keep releasing new toys (ie Kup, Hotshot, Rumble, swerve etc.) while they are not even introduced in the show yet. Will they even make it into the show since some are just repaints?

    And then they introduce Smokescreen into the show without having a toy ready to even sell.............

    What gives?

    To make money. They can't just release the same characters over and over again, they won't make money.

    It's just filler till next year when we can get dudes like Hardshell, Shockwave and Smokescreen as toys.

    Yeah, Hasbro gets kind annoying with that. I mean, you can make arguments for not having some of the figures released, but Smokescreen could have come out before Hotshot, and that's not even debatable.

    This is why I miss the days when I was a kid with Beast Wars. We had the show characters as toys, but also a expanded universe with many non show characters. Some of my all time favorite figures never were in the series.

    I wish it was like that now, be nice to have TFP Smokescreen on the pegs next to TFP Rumble. But that would require the stores to take the loss and just throw all the Bumblebees outside.
