    If you don't live in America you wouldn't know what I'm talking about but a bail-out is an idea set up by our government to give money to buisnesses that are failing to keep them afloat and hopefully help our failing economy.

    No. Hasbro doesnt employ all that many american people. it'd only be saving chinese jobs.

    Hard to say. Would I support a government bail-out of Hasbro? Probably not. At least not unless all the more important and neccessary industries are taken care of.

    Would I make a personal financial contribution to them? Err...I sort of already do that by buying so many of their damnable toys. :|

    Umm. Hasbro Is one of few companies that turned a profit from what i've heard. And no. If they needed money i wouldn't bail them out. It's their own dumb fault for bad business planning if it came to that.

    And this isn't a toy discussion. It does not belong here.

    Given we could still buy plenty of transformable toys from TakaraTomy, Bandai, Yamato, CM's, Toynami and others, I have to say no.

    I don't know... can you imagine how much money we'd save from not buying Transformers and GI Joes.

    Why would you expect a tie or more? When the day is said and done, these are toys we're talking about. There are an infinite amount of other things that are far more important than toys to worry about.

    If not getting toys is your number one priority of worries in life then I'll gladly trade my life for yours.

    No because there would have to be way more important companies that would have to get them first and that the people would have to get a stimulus package as well before entertainment companies get them.
