    Hasbro Replacing Toys Stolen From Shrewsbury Charity | The Westborough Daily Voice

    With all the complaining people do about Hasbro, I think it's nice to see them do something good once and a while. ;)

    Well, that's nice of them.

    The thing about thefts like these (if the one recently by me is any example), is that they're often inside jobs. I hope they find the people responsible and prosecute them to the full extent of the law.

    Saying it now so no one says it: That puts the "Bro" in Hasbro.

    There. It's done. Respond with something more original.

    Thankfully Hasbro has a better idea of how to deal with theft than, say, FunPub.

    EDIT: *Ahem* Sorry. "Putting the 'Bro' in Corporate Tax Write-Off"

    Wait I thought Hasbro was a bunch of evil pricks, hell-bent on bringing ruin to the lives and wallets of post-adolescent toy collectors?

    Even if done for publicity, this is very nice!

    And those thiefs should be ashamed to steal toys.

    Stupid Hasblow always catering to freaking kids and meanwhile there are still members of the 1984 cast without a Masterpiece? How dense and stupid a company can they be? I'm quitting the hobby, for real this time.

    Good for them, even if it was for publicity. Stealing toys before Christmas though? Talk about a Grinchy act. :lol  Still, in all seriousness, I hope this Grinch gets prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    That's amazing. Good on them for doing this. It's really sad that someone, probably multiple someones, would steal not only from a church, but from the kids the presents were intended for. That's just pathetic. I get things are hard, but this really I'd pathetic. I just hope that it wasn't an inside job...

    :lol  :lol  :lol  . Regardless of that very... very true fact, it's really nice of them to do.

    Pretty messed up that a time of year circulating around the theme of giving leads to the most theft.
