Honestly DSJ, I would be happy for even 1 new Dinobot, that is not Grimlock. As he is the one getting all the attention, and the rest need updates. One can only use Energon Swoop as Universe swoop for so long. I would even take a ROTF Mindwipe repainted as Swoop with a new head, But to get one of them would be awesome in a new mold

Hasbro's profits are tanking and they are surely doing this out of desperation. If they have another bad Xmas sales wise. They gonna be bad shape. That said, I don't think raising prices will help boost sales.

Over the last 10 years (especially since the first live action film), Hasbro has oversaturated fans/kids/collectors with Transformers. I wouldn't mind seeing Hasbro take a break from Transformers. They have had so many lines, I think it wouldn't hurt if Hasbro gave Transformers a break after the next movie. Crazy talk I know....

I'm in full agreement with you PuertoRICON, Transformers does need a break even just a 5 year break would do it. Like the break between G1 and Beast Wars. Transformers has been constant for too long. It is time for Transformers to take a break right now here are the top 5 reasons, for the slide in Transformers and Hasbro, because Hasbro has kept most of it on Transformers

 

1) Over saturation of the market. Bumblebee's have been clogging shelves for over a year, stifling new product

2) Trying to make Bumblebee the new face of Transformers

3)The Hub, while Prime has won awards, the return has fallen below expectation

4) Failure of the Marvel lines and My Little Pony among other canceled lines

5) Distribution

Well, I just came back from Target, and Deluxes, although not much, went up from 14.99 to 15.49. And that was just on the regular Prime figures, they didn't have any Generations.

 

If that's just Target raising price to then put discounts, I can live with it and just wait until after Christmas. But if it's Hasbro rasing prices, well, that's goodbye for me buying for my collection, for my son and for my nephews' (and I have plenty) birthdays and Christmas.

 

So, with me, they loose about 3 customers, plus no more recomending the toys to other people (which I do a lot).

 

 

And if we add it up to Michael Bay on TF4 (I refuse to give one more cent to him, don't car if it's TF). It sure looks like they are trying to push away fans and collectors.

Michael Bay had nothing to do with Hasbro raising the price. So you can not blame Michael Bay, if there was one person who should receive blame for it, it is Aaron Archer, he has his hands in all of it

    • Yeah he's a pretty chunky monkey! I'm hoping his bulk lends itself well to some of my future builds! 😄
    • Uh did I miss something? Where does it say that it's a partial of Huffer? It's not stated in the quote here or in the livestream. In this quote it even says that it's "ALL NEW in three molds!!!". I mean it's standing right there next to Huffer and nothing looks to be shared. Nothing can be shared either as there's nothing in common with their transformations and all their parts work differently from their hands to their knees to their ankles to their waists, arms and torsos. Cosmos' transformation looks most similar to Warpath which would explain the leakers saying that it was a retool. Even then however, they share no parts. Warpath also has what looks to be like twice the parts count from all the flaps compared to Cosmos. I take this full quote as it's completely new as he states that there's a certain budget for new molds and that Takara managed to work within that budget to get all the parts needed while only using three mold sprues. It looks it as there's not a lot of individual parts. It looks like there's one mold in green, one mold in yellow and one unpaintable mold also in yellow. Two of the three shades of green are paint, the yellow on the arms and face is paint, both shades of blue are paint, the red is paint, the silver is paint. Which makes me wonder where the flag came from. If it came from one of the molds for Cosmos then it's not white. Meaning that they also used black and white paint. That's a shit ton of colors used on just one figure. There's also quite a bit of paint on him in general.  This guy is just showing him next to one of the other "Minibots" to better get a feel for his overall size. Not to show that Cosmos is a partial of Huffer.
    • In what has been a bit of a trying week, and limits imposed on some social media, I also celebrate 3 years of GotBot Goes Live and being married  (yes, they both coincide) with a Wednesday edition of the live show covering Legacy and Velocitron leaks and a few channel updates!
