    Good news from Fun Pub, for once in 3 months.

    And for the record, I did NOT let the new system keep my credit card number stored on the new secure server...that option shouldn't even be available after this debacle.

    Okay, now this makes sense.

    Massed produced 3rd party products bad, artists creations that are limited by the very nature of being one of a kind original artwork good(barring prints, which again are usually an extremely limited run anyway). They should stick to that line of seperation on what constitutes actual infringement on their IPs.

    They made the right move here. Even if the decision was made so they would not lose more tables and money, it's still great for the fans and I think that's what is important.

    Not really. You guys are giving yourselves too much credit. Hasbro just wants to avoid having this years BotCon be a MEGA fail, which it looks like it's going to be.

    I think he's right. It is us, collectors, who make the Con. And that kind of goes with your "Mega fail". Upset fans/collectors equals a pretty crappy Con.
