    Or we can simply wait for things to be revealed on their own.

    That'd be nice for a change.

    But then things like the Thundertron situation would be exponentially worse, without any knowledge that another one was coming.

    Consumers have managed to survive for years without someone leaking everything to them beforehand, I'm sure we'd survive. D:

    At this point we know so much I have little desire for more leaks.

    It’s more about proper expectation management, reality and hopefully positive outcomes for what we know.

    Sides I’ll lose it even harder if Big Convoy is revealed when he’s ready and not through a leak.

    Nature abhors a vacuum.

    As does TFW2005.

    I think it is also this rancorous attitude towards leaks and those who make them that has pushed @Jtprime17 to leave not only his role as leaker but also that of simple user of this community, and it is a real shame because he was an exquisite person and I would have wanted it to remain even if it no longer released leaks.

    Nah it was probably moreso the actual harassment he apparently received than my perceived attitude.

    We may never know what really was the straw that broke the camel's back, but it's really a shame to have lost him...

    Idk leaked listings have made things very convenient for me to plan and budget accordingly. I can think of quite a few things that would've been a lot more hectic for me to make room for if I hadn't known about them in advance. That being said I'm sure someone will take over eventually.

    But yeah it's unfortunate if he left entirely, especially if it was because of what went down in March.

    Don't know the full details, but I guess he received death threats over a lot of the stuff that had leaked at that time since Hasbro had nothing to really talk about on their whole month of streams thing. Believe it was mostly on twitter which I'm not on so I can't say for sure.

    Well, he's not the head.
    He's the "Director of Product Design", which sounds a lot like his old TF position of Senior Design Manager.
    He's not the brand manager. He doesn't decide what gets made.

    When I wrote "back to command" I meant exactly this, that back to the command he previously had over the designers of the products for TF fans (and now also GI Joe), he has never had absolute power over what is or is not produced as transformers (just as Mark doesn't have it now)

    While I agree that some leaks were nice to help know where Hasbro was pulling a fast one, it's been way too much. Taking a lot of surprise away, and it can be very problematic when something gets cancelled everyone was counting on. It's really insane to me how far out we know exactly what's coming in so many different lines. Sometimes I don't want to know, especially when it's a lot of stuff it looks like I don't want.

    Good for him doing what's best for him, he owes us nothing. We will be fine. And leaks will never completely go away.

    Doesn't he get a notice every time someone @s him? This isn't directed at you, but I see people @ing him all the time, even after he announced he's stepping back and then retiring. Over some stupid stuff sometimes too i.e. "do you have any leaks about a future animated lugnut?!". I'd imagine that'd wear a person down too.
