Actually you´d use "is" if it was a pèrson, but seeing as they´re a company, you would say, are... :P I like the fact that you didn´t say anything about the "bringin" though :thumb

 

Except "Hasbro" is the equivalent of a collective noun. Example:

 

 

"My family is awesome."

 

 

"Family" is singular, even though it refers to multiple people, it is a singular unit. "Is" is appropriate. In contrast:

 

 

"The families are at war with each other."

 

 

Here we are referring to TWO units of multiple people, so "are" is appropriate.

 

Considering that the name Hasbro is referring to a single unit of type "company," "is" is correct. You can also raise the point "Well, some companies only consist of a single person," which is fairly common.

yuyuyami makes a good point. so when does the who/whom debate begin?

 

 

broke the 200 mark in the collection with masterpiece grimlock this weekend. can't wait to open it up

 

"Who/Whom" is easy. "Who" is used for the nominative case, "Whom" is used for the dative, accusative and ablative cases.

 

For a full declension of "who," see:

 

Nominative: Who

Genitive: Whose

Dative: to/for Whom

Accusative: Whom

Ablative: by/at/which/when(etc.) Whom

Vocative: Who

 

 

The nominative case is used to denote the subject of the sentence, while the genitive case shows ownership. The dative case indicates the indirect object (I.E, I gave the box to him. "I" is the subject, "Gave" is the verb, "The box" is the direct object and "him" is the indirect object) and the accusative case indicates the direct object (see above example). The ablative case is a bit more tricky, since it has so many uses, but it tends to indicate direction, location or agency (I.E,"I sent him off west," "He is at home," "He came by car").

 

However, I personally tend not to use "whom" simply because it doesn't roll off the tongue quite so easily as "who." It disrupts the rhythm of my speech and sounds awkward, though that's partly because it has fallen out of usage in general and my ear isn't tuned to the word.

Dude, there's no shame in knowing your native language through and through. I only complain at you from time to time because you don't put enough effort in your posts for them to be regularly coherent.

GI Joe Rise Of Cobra 3.75" -

 

Duke (City Strike) £2.49

Storm Shadow (Arctic Assault) £2.49

 

Both from Poundstretcher.

 

And the best...

 

ROTF NEST Deluxe -

 

Autobot Ratchet

Lockdown

 

Shelf label in ASDA read £12.99 and another one next to it read £9.99, figured I'd be happy paying either of those prices. Went down to the checkouts and they scanned as £2.49!

 

So guys in the UK if you need any of the figures from the NEST assortment, I'd check out ASDA as that is an absolute bargain of a price!
