    *back after reading article* So, Hasbro actually has kids play with products that are planned to see if their good enough to be released huh?

    Guess a lot of kids liked the AoE FE Optimus and the Titan figures then.

    Ironically, despite Hasui's engineering being so beloved now, he was also behind some mediocre toys like armada Starscream or Energon Wing saber. Of course, those were really early in his career.

    Anyway, Hasui cut his teeth doing a bunch of the retail lines like Classics, Animated, and the movie lines; something that people have attributed the more simpler, toyetic design of his MPs to; in comparison to the more really complex designs of Kobayashi's.

    Generations is the Collectors line (similar to The Black Series for Star Wars or the DC Classics/ Masters of the Universe Classics lines )

    What about the Hasbro Collectors club?

    Also, Hasbro made Energon Swoop and Grimlock on there own, and I don't know about anyone else, but I was not that thrilled with them.
