Stop buying their inferiour proudcts. If everybody who was dissapointed with Hasbro stopped buying their toys thean they would take a hit on profits.

So instead of just talking about how worthless Hasbro is, do something about it!

Stop buying!!!!



I agree! They take care of that themselves with their horrible distribution anyway. I haven't even seen a Marvel Legend on the shelves in about a year.

Seriously Hasbro could have molded the crotch differently so they don't have to use that hip joint. And Toybiz only used that hip joint on some of the figures like the thomas jane punisher but Hasbro has to be annoying by using that hip joint on almost all of their figures. Why didn't they use the simplest joint like the one Toybiz used for the X2 X-men United figures? They worked very well and not annoying. This is why I passed up almost all of their figures especially the Wolverine and the X-men toy line.

Than people must really hate them. ;)

I'm not even mad over ML.

I'm MAD they killed my line!!!!

They cancelled TFU/C and were replace by these awful little pieces of plastic turds ROTF!!!!

I'm also mad because of current state of Star wars figures. I'm bored out of my skull with them. Time to change scale!

Could you imagine a 6 inch Han Solo with 22 poa?? Man I'd be down for that in a heart beat! I'm not even a scale nazi I own lots of 3.75 and love my 3.75 figures but Star Wars would be so cool in ML style.

Your right it will never happpen. :cry:

Every 6 months somebody writes into ToyFare and ask if hasbro would being doing that.

The awnswer is always "NO"

Now since Hasbro has deep pockets they'll never lose the Star Wars lincse. Besides it seems like every other year their geting 5 year extenstion ontop of their exsiting time frame.

To be honest I'd freaking love it if Hasbro lost the rights to Star Wars. Even if it was just a "change"

I'm sick over aliens that get 3 second screen time geting rehashed over and over again. It's boring! I also IMO that the sculps on the main actors aren't really improving. It's 2010 the likness should be "there" now. They've only had 15(!!!!) years to get it right!

Rant over! ](*,)

I will definely be picking one up! :D


Check out the Diamond (or is it Marvel?) Select War Machine: It looks AMAZING, and like something from the film, @ a roughly 6" scale:

I'll wait until I see some toy reviews on it, but I'll probably get this one, and the "Hypervelocity" Iron Man 2 line figure armor. It looks like it's approaching comic book "Extremis" style. :)

Seems like they own or try to own everything toy related now, When yo own so many different things it's hard to focus on each line individually and give them what they deserve, And what the fans of specific line want. :?
Not that i think they even care to begin with. =;

Years ago it was boardgames and then transformers, barbie, and gi joe but now they've got their hands in everything. That and they're spreading brands too far, they found that with barbie and will find it with transformers too. People can't afford to get 40 figures at a time even when they aren't crap.

Revoltech FTW!!! Cant wait for their Alien,T-Rex (Jurassic Park!!!!), Gamera, and Baragon figures! I hope the last 2 hint a possibility of a Revoltech Godzilla(s)?? I'd scream like a little school girl if that happened! :mrgreen:
