I posted this in another thread but, I think it deserves it's own. The recent confirmation of the cartoon's cancellation and the rumors spreading around that the toyline will be cancelled soon with retailers possibly no longer stocking Animated, it got me thinking. After some thought, it occurred to me that the death of the Animated cartoon and toyline most likely is not Hasbro's fault. In 2007, retailers wanted all things Movie-related after they saw how successful the first waves were.....I believe that retailers may be preparing to do the same with ROTF. What if it's the retailers who are causing Hasbro to cancel the Animated cartoon and toyline? For example, if they have "X" amount of space in their stores for TFs merchandise what if the retailers are the ones who want it all devoted to ROTF? What if they told Hasbro that they're no longer going to support (i.e. buy.) the Animated line? If that was the case, Hasbro had to make a decision. They can't continue a cartoon without a toyline and if retailers didn't want it anymore and instead wanted to devote all of their money and shelfspace to ROTF, this is what might have caused the premature death of TF: Animated. If this is true and retailers no longer wanting Animated is what caused it's death then damn you Wal-mart and Target and any other massive retailer!! We may be getting pissed at hasbro for no reason......I believe that it may be the large corporate retailers that have caused the death of this great cartoon and toyline. What do you think?
