LISTENER QUESTIONS –
Nik – I’ll read out this one
From Alexandria (Xen) Allen,
What’s a toy you would buy, no matter how expensive it was?

********************************************************************************
Dear Repacked,
1) Hasbro has given us Transformers we’d never thought we’d get. Such as Bruticus, Jhiaxus and Straxus. Who else needs the rub?
I vote Octus.
2) Speaking of giving us characters we’d never thought we’d get, what’re your thought on Transformers 3rd Party companies now? Do you think they’re on the way out? Or will they be reduced to doing accessories again? Or are they not affected despite Hasbro now fulfilling the niche they once held.
Some of them are still doing characters that Hasbro’s already announced, but that’s probably because they’ve already invested in the metal molds.

Toyasumi nasai.
