Do you think HTS.com put preorders out for the TF Animated line because they're trying to gauge interest in the line? It might make sense that they opened the preorders so that they can see how well it's selling. They could then in turn go back to the retailers and say "look at these numbers. The TF Animated line is selling (and selling out) like crazy. Would you be interested in moving up that street date?" I think it's possible. I mean if a studio can move up the release date of a movie because people are chomping at the bit to see it, then Hasbro could certainly move up some toys. (after showing retailers the pre-sale numbers) What do you think?
