LISTENER QUESTIONS

Hello, I am a plastic crack addict from the U.S. I am mostly a 4″ figure collector, GI JOE, MARVEL INFINITE and anything that fits in. I am a fan of star wars and transformers, but i do not have the finances nor the space to support such lines. I have also recently fallen into FUNKO and now i have no money at all. in addition i listen to you guys every week, and listen to all the figuarts and macross and other awesomeness. I spend 2 hrs with you guys and 3hrs talking myself out of starting another line. those damn sailor moon
figures, anyways, i was thinking the other day with the sad state of GI JOE and the reduction of articulation across the 4″ lines, is there any reason for me to continue supporting hasbro? clearly one of two things is happening at hasbro. either no one knows whats going on or they know and don’t care. they say that it’s to costly to make articulated figures with gimmicks and packaging. so they cut articulation and packaging and paint but keep the oversized spring loaded gimmick launcher. the retaliation vehicles that were poopooed for the 5POA POS’s then 5POA iron man but no good ones 5POA spider mans and no good ones. i’m not saying to break the bank. i’ll take repaints of the same buck. But no… hasbro has decided to make new bucks for marvel with not 5POA but 7POA. wow.. at this point i realize im just rambling. anyway am i crazy is it really that hard? Thanx guys

Hi Repacked,

Do you think there’s truth to the theory that Hasbro shoe-horned “beasts” into Transformers Prime in order to acclimatize their customer base to the idea of non-vehicle based Transformers so that they could do Dinobots for Age of Extinction and Beast Wars for Generations?

Are they doing it again by making the latest Equestria Girls movie music themed so they can re-introduce the idea of the “cartoon” all-girl music bands and help Jem and the Holograms, which is scheduled to come out 2015?

Is Hasbro playing master manipulator?

Also (rainbow crack sugar question),

Anyone watched the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks movie? I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed it. How about you?

Thanks,
Eugene de Guzman
