So, with Alternators, Classics, and now Titaniums gone, I'm feeling a little bit jerked around, and I've begun to wonder: why does Hasbro set all of the collector-oriented toys up for failure? There's some poison pill in every line that kills it: Alternators are just a bit too hard for the kiddees IMO, something that could easily have been fixed by a slightly less firm insistence that the interior be as perfect as it is. The case assortments and distribution on them were miserable as well. Mainlines don't get treated that way. Titaniums were made of metal and don't hold up well under play, and their distribution sucked as well. And Classics? Well, Classics had none of those problems but were apparently given an end date before they were even released. Why did Hasbro feel the need to stick these two collector lines with these distinguishing gimmicks that made them less attractive to the kids? Why did they kill them with bad distribution? If Hasbro isn't going to support these lines to a full conclusion, why even bother with a separate line that can be easily refused by retailers? They've shown that they have no problem selling toys that aren't in the anime. Why did Classics have to end? Why can't the new Classics figures just poke up in the next main line from time to time? Why couldn't the Botcon seekers have been repaints in the TF:Animated line? I understand that Hasbro is a business and needs to make money. But I'm beginning to feel a bit used and confused here. They throw out these collector-oriented lines for the bit of extra cash we can provide them, but as soon as these lines hit difficulties, difficulties largely created by Hasbro, they're gone. Let me state that I don't think that either Classics or Titaniums had a "good run". I'm bitter about both. Neither lines produced enough toys nor made enough iconic characters. There aren't really enough of either line to look good on display, particularly given the lack of the big iconic characters. I'm about this close to selling mine off. Alternators were acceptable, but barely. Still no Ironhide or Ratchet or Bumblebee. If they're not going to support these lines, why don't they front-load them with iconic characters so we can at least get a good set? I'm sick of it, and I don't think I'll be buying into any future collector-oriented lines unless this changes. Why does Hasbro keep sabotaging these collector-oriented lines? Why can't we get something more like Classics that continues inside of these main lines or get an actual working plan to make money off of these collector lines instead of just throwing them out there and hoping they stick?
