Have you considered anger management? Or maybe just a different hobby? It's clear you are no longer enjoying collecting Star Wars figures, so why no save yourself the stress and move on to something else?Hasbro can't face the truth, they can't HANDLE the truth.
The truth of their mess ups, they can't handle all the same questions pointing at one huge mother of all f ups on their part.
crap distro, crap figure choices, crap case assortments, crap price increases, obi wan in every wave in every line they release, and only recently did we get away from another anakin... Oh wait, no we didn't we got a REALISTIC CW anakin REALLY? It alll points to one reason they don't take part in these any more, they are tired of hearing about their mess ups and not having people praise them for whatever reason. They are tired of hearing it over and over and over again from fans and not doing anything to correct the issues and we all know and see it.
At least thats my theory.
But as I have said, how do you know that is Hasbro's fault? Maybe the stores only ordered so much product and it's gone, maybe it had something to do with a shipping company, maybe it's in the back of the store and they haven't put it out.... Like I said before, just because there may be a problem doesn't automatically mean it's Hasbro's fault. You are placing blame without knowing all the facts. All you know is there are supposed to be waves out but you don't see them so you blame the people that make it and it could be something not in their control.My only proof of something wrong is no new vintage on the pegs = somethiing wrong. There should be 2 waves in abundance out ther now, and its not there.
That's all I need to know.All you know is there are supposed to be waves out but you don't see them so you blame the people that make it and it could be something not in their control.
You're wasting your time with him mate. His replies go off on such a tangant, he's start blabbering on about something completely different. He even felt the need to correct my spelling in another post, and normally when you have someone do that, they've lost the argument, because they don't have much else to back it up.Good God bigbarada... get off your high horse. We know how retail works. We all know you LOVE hasbro, so why are you giving me an economics lesson?
So riddle me this, why do we not have issues with other toy brands, but have all these issues with Hasbro? Mattel is just fine, Hot Wheels is just fine, there are always RACKS of WWE figures,Why is it that Joe, Avengers, Star Wars, etc... are all EMPTY or lacking in quantity? What's the common denominator? They are produced by HASBRO!
And of course they should be targets of our rage, they can't get it right. They need to pass the license off to someone who can run the lines properly. I wanted to get away, but your economics lesson made me post again. IF you want me to shut up and stop bashing hasbro, then stop feeding me the ammo I need to continue to bash them.
And there in two sentences, the situation is summed up perfectly.Hasbro can't ship product that retailers don't buy.
I think the biggest issue that can be blamed on Hasbro (at least for SW and Marvel) is the terrible case assortments.
Well, at least we've found something that we can agree on. B)Its not worth arguging with some people mate, as they are blinded in their opinion.
Because your comments show that you clearly do not understand the basics of retail economics. I'm trying to help your cause here, because mindlessly raging against Hasbro is going to accomplish nothing. You need to educate yourself on how this all works so you can start asking the right questions, instead of just throwing around insult-laced accusations and conspiracy theories. What you are basically doing now, by allowing your emotions to take control, is shooting spit wads at a brick wall. You need to change your tactics if you want to start seeing some results. Step one is to stop approaching this as if Hasbro owes you anything.so why are you giving me an economics lesson?
By reading here, I assume.I agree....
With the new response that they are on the Fan sites but not talking with us then how do we truly know they are there and REALLY LISTENING to US???
I have an philosophical approach, and I've found people admitting that I'm more or less right with it :If you want to have a real say in how Hasbro runs their business then start buying stocks, not action figures.
I sure don't have my doctorate in Business Economics but I work every day in CUSTOMER SERVICE!Because your comments show that you clearly do not understand the basics of retail economics.

That is the most incredile statement you have come up with so far..... and its had some good competetion!If you want to have a real say in how Hasbro runs their business then start buying stocks, not action figures.
Wow.. that just sums it all up... You work in customer service but yet you can't grasp the idea of business...I sure don't have my doctorate in Business Economics but I work every day in CUSTOMER SERVICE!
Customer service is CRUCIAL to a business. First word of that being customer, that means us the buyer of Hasbros product. Service is the business side of something and in this case Hasbro. So, in my field, when a customer does not have dial tone, I have to fix it. And unlike Hasbro, I don't have the luxury of blowing off my customers like hasbro does. So, in my scenerio, I am hasbro (the business) The individual without dial tone is the customer, I can't just say "Well, I have no idea. The price of oil is up, and that is why I am charging you more for your dial tone. Additionally, we can't keep your dial tone going because of some phantom in our dial tone logistics area". And in NO way is it ok to just stop listening to my customers. NOOOOOOOO, that is not ok at all. And that is exactally what hasbro has done.
No, If someone is unhappy (us customers of hasbro) then the business (Hasbro) needs to fix the issues and make us happy. Otherwise, how can we keep their business afloat if there is no product to buy? Happy customers = larger profit margins and sales. That is the way it works. There you go Mr. economics major.
And buy stocks? REALLY?? Help a failing company by buying a different product and not the product they are selling? That's not the way to change their policies. All that does is make their stock worth more to put more money in the cooporate pocket and guess what, we still don't have product in stores. That is a flawed theory.
So what else do you have to lecture me on bigbarada?
I know they stopped listening because they don't show up for the Q&As, they don't reply to facebook posts, they haven't changed ANYTHING and are still having fans royally mad at them due to not finding product, so all that indicates that they are not listening. They have not changed case assortments after 2+ years of back lash, they have not fixed distro issues after 2+ years of customer inquaries, and the fact that they love to flood the market with useless lines indicates they are clueless and have not listened to ANY of the fans out there (minus the annual Hasbro Fans Choice which is subjective... Fans have been voting the twins for years and still nothing). So if you ask me, Hasbro listens to fans once a year and on a topic that helps them determine which figure to underproduce and mispack in case assortments annually.Secondly, you are on one of your assumptions again. So how do you know Hasbro has stopped listening???
Have the Tonnika twins not been on the top of every dream sheet of fans for years? That means the fans have been asking for it.Ihnken33
Obviously you haven't listened to economics since still don't believe it but it's simple economics you could learn in high school. As for customer service, you seem to still think that Hasbro owes you something. That is wrong with today's society, you aren't owed anything for nothing. Hasbro puts out a product and you can buy it or not, you have no say in how they do their business. You may not agree with it and that is your choice but you have no right to say they how to run their business the way you want them to. We have already gone over the lack of product might not be their choice, but what if it is their choice and they want to limit how much of their product they produce, it is their right to do that, not yours. When you own Hasbro you can make whatever changes you want, but until then you have no say in how they do their business.
You do mention one thing that had me almost fall off my chair laughing at though...
I love how you say fans have been voting for the twins for years and still nothing made. Really, to use any form of logic in this conversation you resort to the Tonnika twins? You really are out of touch if you think they should have been made now. The Tonnika sisters are not even on the table to be made and that comes directly from Lucas. You hold a company responsible for a decision they can't even make even if they wanted to.
Any logic you may have had going for now is completely lost. So you might as well just move.
