    $200 a year? Heck, I probably spend that a month at UK prices.

    Yeh, $200 is like Prime, Megatron and Vector Prime. :D 
    I noticed that the disguise elemt wasn't mentioned on their survey, so I mentioned it in my answer.

    I think it gives them a better way of gauging the responses as a function of the market share of the clients answering the survey. For instance, if older collectors are answering the q's, maybe they will implement the responses in product development to the more collector oriented aspects of the brands such as alternators.

    Too bad "realistic" alt mode wasnt part of the most important aspect since it is for me at the moment.

    $200 or more? Man are they thinking small. The first wave of a Main Line collection is more than that.

    When I think about it... my anual cost is high in the thousands... not hundreds.

    I was hoping one of the questions was "Do you want Masterpiece Starscream to be sold in the U.S. at a reasonable ($75 or less) price."

    Yeah, I've spent that on my first 4 Cybertron toys alone. Also, I wish there was a comments section. Hasbrotoyshop needs to start sending to other countrys

    Seeing as I can't type Venezuela, Latin America or South America as an answer on the question about the region I live in... I won't complete the survey. :( 

    And it's not because we're being ignored by Hasbro, but because whoever coded that survey has no clue about how to program an option for "other (please specify)"

    I think it was just a general survey. Why do people have to complain about this too?

    Yeah, I was also a little curious as to why they had the Other option, but you couldn't submit anything that way.

    Just type in the text box, but also hit the radio button that would be closest to what you're going to say anyway (for whatever degree that is possible, anyway).

    I also agree that while it wasn't great, it's better than nothing. Besides, we know Hasbro does web monitoring of various sites. All of the bitching in this thread will be seen (that may not reflect very well on what opinions they gave, though).

    Speaking of bitching, I do have one: When they asked 'what do you like most', I was expecting that to be followed by a 'what do you like least'. I would have definitely been putting down poor naming/name re-use.

    I want my Classic Hot Rod to have something that evokes 'Hot Rod', not 'Energon Rodimus'. How about stealing a page from the Takara playbook and calling him 'Hot Rodimus' (since they seem to have too many problems using names they should be allowed to use).

    I hope this clues them in and shows just how big we, as a fandom really are. Yes, they do give us fanwanks for sure (hell A/E/C has been chockfull of 'em) and they continue to raise the bar, but there are certain areas of their workings that could use a little work.

    Distribution for one. If more collectors were catered to (and yes, they do cater to us as it is, I get that) they'd be willing to spend more, all over. Thus we'd see better saturation.

    All in all, I'm glad they put up the survey.
