We had a number of strong product initiatives, but consumer demand through much of the holiday season was less than anticipated in both the U. S. and certain international markets.
Well let's see, No GI Joe to be found and the ones that could be found were either at a Dollar Store, or made like they should be sold at a Dollar Store (Retaliation). Then you Shrink Transformers, use substandard plastics, less plastic and less paint apps and then jack up the prices 50%.

And you wonder why sales are off. FU Goldner.

No it won't it will result in even lower sales. Lees people will buy a product if quality goes down.

I don't think it's really that way... I think cheaper made figures are the result of sales declining, not the cause. Like said in article, it's likely gonna get worse.

It's the cause and the effect. It's the snake eating it's own tail. It may get worse, but then again so will sales.

Good luck Hasbro.

You lower the quality of your products, and as a result sell less to the consumer.

Perhaps this is time to reflect.

Hmm.

I suppose it would be considered in bad taste if I made a crack about maybe getting my toys for cheaper now?

... Kinda answered my own question there, didn't I?

Hasbro isn't just TFs. We know TFs have been good bread and butter for them since TFTM, but the toy industry is tricky and trendy.
