Ugh, that is not a pretty picture that is being painted there. Hasbro's actions in the recent past about these sorts of things has been schizophrenic - sometimes they remain deathly quiet, other times they make statements and don't back them up, and still others they send out their investigators without listening to what the fan sites are saying to them ("I got these pictures from google, I got these products from ebay" - that's it, go investigate THEM). And instead of doing a top-down investigation, they're doing a bottom-up one without the "up" part, they're just harassing fans instead of looking at the obvious source of the problems - someone at the factory level for a lot of the ebay product.
I'd like to believe that the problems they faced over there were coincidental - Hasbro does give stuff out from time to time, and it's possible that the legal matters had nothing to do with their address request, although the timing is incredibly suspicious. Alternately, another "trying to give these guys a break instead of looking at it like jackbooted thugs" scenario is that the Hasbro people down there wanted to give out those promo items but someone in their management required them to do due-dilligence on the site and they found those concerning images and had to act. But ultimately, it just looks bad all around and disappointing, and the problem is only that Hasbro's products fans are excited about their product line, but cannot find enough official information about those products, so it seems like Hasbro needs to change their focus, split it into investigating their factories' leaks and fixing their communications-with-fans bottleneck.
Found the new Rogue One Black Series 6" at Burbank TRU yesterday. One of the employees really seemed excited to put the stuff out in the middle
That is an awesome display there! We all seem to have similar "problems" with what/where to do/show off our collectibles...
I picked up Scourge today.
I wasn't going to. I like the Classics one. But Target had some clearance TFA stuff, and I needed $13 to hit the
I had read that E.E. "Doc" Smith's "Lensmen" series from the 1930s was supposedly an influence not only on Star Wars (and Lucas) but
Those have always been overpriced, IMHO. Sad, really. But they are quality cards, so I guess you pay what you get for.
They sure like that 3-2 score; every one of the Pens' three wins so far ended that way, after tonight's Cup Final rematch against the Sharks.
They've tried to figure out for years how to get Shatner into the Pine-verse, but despite Abrams creating his own new timeline he for some reason feels

I am. PM so we can work out the details.
Thanks for the tip! I got free shipping by ordering all three new sets.
