    Just browsing TF Wiki for random stuff for reading then I came across the entry for Robot Points.
    I was wondering if Hasbro can implement this during the later waves of Transformers Prime figures, in my opinion its a good idea, so that we can get all the FE figures.

    P.S. this is my first time to make a thread, so please excuse any mistakes I may have made.

    Only thing that sucks is that there are too many people out there who would jack the points. When GI Joe had the Mail-in Doc offer, I was buying Joes for my cousin, and if you didn't get the packages straight off the trucks, someone likely had jacked the sticker already. I could only imagine if 1st Edition Vehicon was the offer figure, every package would be opened/cut/whatever it would take to remove the robot points.

    I guess they could make them as cut-outs again, so that they'll be much easier to spot if the points are gone or not. And also they could offer the entire FE line in a catalog as well.

    what did they do for the mail-away ravage for the second movie? Just do that again.

    I think it would need to have already been implemented in order to work. Since robot points are not on the rid packages we can't have a mail away for the FE primes.

    Yea, POP and original receipt would be the best option. If they are cut outs, a-holes would either rip them out or cut them in store, and they may even do that with POPs if you don't need an original receipt. I know right now we are going through a big repack and return issue at three of the Ross's in my area. There is no such thing as rock bottom when you are dealing with scumbags.

    I think there was a problem like that with that booklet you had to have to mail away for the Ravage in the NEST subline mail a way. the set that it came with was often returned withe book missing

    Yup, and that figure was a turd (IMO). Can you imagine if it was actually a good figure? But I guess the original receipt and POP would solve some of those problems, or atleast lesson them. That reminds me, I have to dig up my Ravage and hauk it one of these days.
