    Dang, I guess not enough profit margin for the C-suite to light their cigars with. Just license it out to a competent toymaker like all your other brands.

    I suppose this plays into the idea that Hasbro and other toy brands are only seeing growth in the adult consumer sector, that kids ain't buying action figures anymore so there's no reason to aim product at them. If ever there was a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I feel like both of these happenings could have been avoided.

    That's good, now whenever he happens they can make him a deluxe and be all the better for it.

    I thought core class was part of studio series, not Earthspark. Also for core being $10, what are they thinking of replacing the line with? Shame it appears to be true that Earthspark is ending after season 2. Now fans will argue about what a real Transformers show should be. I like Earthspark. Shame they can\'t have two shows going but I think the woke argument and deliberate negative reviews is the big culprit for the show looking unsuccessful to Paramount.

    You can make a claim and then what someone asks you for facts you just say well how do you know I’m wrong and you’re not wrong? That’s not how it works.

    But since you asked
    Preorders for a variety of chug figures immediately selling out, overall excitement and popularity of the brand(this website massive example) so may people talking about getting their orders in, sighting threads always active with people looking for stuff, SS expansion to commander class. SS expanding to Gamer edition( classic signs of success of a product is expansion). Resell market of chug figures shows a strong demand for them. Feedback from the brand and the diesngers themselves. 3 straight CHUG style Haslabs all successful. I could keeping going. So again I ask you. What’s your source that “all of chug is sitting” ? You don’t have one because their isn’t one because your statement is false so you’re just saying stuff to say it is the real answer but of course you won’t admit that.

    The core class news and earthspark news are unrelated information being shared in the same post.

    Nice to see you pop up JT, hope you've been well. :) 

    The news about Core Class really sucks as I was looking forward to the future of it, guess that isn't happening now. I enjoyed what we got and I'm thankful for it, but man the things we could've had.

    I jus think because they had an idea for Core Class Quickstrike. But now that they are cancelling it, they are cancelling that.

    Who knows if they will ever have an idea for a Deluxe one.

    I hope they find a way to include them with other figures as exclusives. There are a lot of small characters that need to have small toys.

    From the sound of it, not next year…

    Finger, toes and anything else I can cross in hopes for a good toyline. Can't wait to see the line up for both.

    Just finished watching the first batch of season 2 yesterday, the bad dip in Animation Quality, the humor was mostly flat, and the Humans are just badly written.

    As for the end of Core Class I hope there going to do Minicon 3 packs at the Warrior Price point, or bring back Legends at the lower price point.

    This means no modern update for Landcross or some Operation Combination combiners in core class.

    A friend just pointed out to me that core class doesn't seem to sit in his area, and he's right, it's the same with my area, core class doesn't linger at Target any more than any other class (except Leader which lingers longer than it used to now).

    With this year being the 40th anniversary, I can see the new show being relates to G1, but likely not your idea. Which would have me thinking why not keep Earthspark and have the new show? But if course if it's looking like a failure numbers wise, then that's why.
