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.
I liked this pace: an uncertain killer until close to the very end (with several of the suspects still "in the running" by then, too), Bones'
It's that time of year again. I hope you had a good day.
Movie or G1? If G1, the Hercules combiner set members are around voyager size.
You are correct, they are scout size, but tall-ish
I've been surprisingly impressed with this line; but I'm probably just going to buy a couple of Stormtroopers and keep my eyes out for any other OT Imperials
Can't believe I'm the first to post about Nelson Mandela. Sad to lose such a wonderful humanitarian and good and fair politician (not many of those

It took some time for me too. But well worth the wait
The weapons deal is definitely going to have blowback.
Jax is na´ve if he thinks he can just get the club away from the Chinese and the Irish.
Dec. 13th. I actually didn't even realize it was a pre-order until you wrote that and I went and looked at the e-mail.
Oh yeah, I think that scene's on the Blu-ray.
