    ROC becoming POC. POC hiatus'ed from Jan 2010 to AUGUST (sound familiar?).The 30th put on some version of limbo hiatus for the film toys which are now on hiatus themselves??? while Renegades gets hiatus'ed for this film release which is now hiatus'ed because of itself? Are the toys even selling at this point? Will they even have*traction 9 months from now? I mean I am far from being able to tell Hasbro what does and doesn't work. I am just asking questions. And trying to figure out where they are coming from. Am I missing something?

    Hence the question at the end.
    Now is the summer, fall, and winter of sorrow.

    I'm sure the retailers will be just fine with this and it will not affect their willingness to order and stock product now or in the future </sarcasm>.

    Wow, we got screwed out of a 30th anniversary for this, way to go Hasblow. I'm not picking up a single movie figure until I see the movie, so you can guess what that means.

    Wow.

    So, nothing aside from wave 1 (maybe wave 2 if they made it that far) at retail until next year? Holy smokes!

    This IS going to be a long 9 months.

    Vintage Joe, here I come!
