    Don't expect much from HTS. If hasbro can't get product in stores they certainly aren't going to offer things via a perceived competitor... What hts is and what it was meant to be especially on the collector side are two pretty different things.

    The other thing we have to look at is that kids are still the primary audience for this stuff. Those Titan toys that we all hate? Moms and kids love them.. Especially the marvel dudes. Would you as a kid rather have a Titan class hulk for 10 bucks or those disc cassette things? When those cassette disc things sit... Stores don't re order. And that's why you don't get cosmos and Cliffjumper.... The collector line doesn't sell like the crappy kids stuff does. If it wasn't for these billion dollar movies making toys we all hate to subsidize stuff like gears and crosscut for us I shudder to think where transformers would be... Have you seen a joe lately? We hate the bay verse but that stuff is bankable.

    I finally found AoE Lockdown, but I had to go all the way to the Pontiac TRU to get it. I was on my way to Great Lakes Crossing, so it worked out nicely.

    A bunch of Generations Preorders just went live at HTS. Here's the link:
    New Toys & Games | Hasbro Toy Shop

    They've got some new AoE stuff on there as well like Slog, Drift and Lockdown.

    Ah, I see they jacked the price up $5 on Skybyte and Roadbuster within a couple hours. Sneaky!

    I saw rattrap and tankor at walmart in saginaw on state st. i wasn't impressed with tankor...reminds me of blocky old-style TFs; does it even have articulation? rattrap looks cool

    Went ahead and preordered various TFs on hasbrotoyshop in order to save on gas. Remember to use 10htsdisc for 10% off. Helps offset the price of shipping some.
