Are the any Plans for a Masterpeice Galvatron?

Will the Masterpeice Series expand to include other Generations, say as in a Masterpeice Optimal Optimus or TransMetal 2 Megatron?

Generations Arcee? When is it coming?

Are there any plans to expand CYBERVERSE? Not only to the movie line but to also include more past characters, base/playsets for example like Trypticon, Metroplex, G1 Ark/Nemesis, Scorponok & dare I say Fortress Maximus!

How will target exclusives with target logos on them be sold here in Canada? Will they still be sold through Zellers? HA Leadfoot and the Leadfoot / Topspin two pack come to mind.

Re: Submit your questions for the TFcon 2011 Hasbro Canada Q&A

My question if for the R & D department. With the releases of 3rd party products that seem to be flooding the market with quality items these days what is Hasbro's consumer insight and strategy to compete with these non licensed developers? The demand for these items is enough to drive an expanding market as we see more 3rd party developers emerging. What can we expect to see in the future from Hasbro/Takara?

Re: Submit your questions for the TFcon 2011 Hasbro Canada Q&A

Over the last few years there has been a serious drop in QC in the transformers lines, what is being done to correct this matter?

ie sloppy paint apps, excessive stress marks out of the box (RTS Prime and Wreckgar) MP Rodimus breaking out pf package and weak tabs(takara...hasbro version???) and excessively loose joints.

Re: Submit your questions for the TFcon 2011 Hasbro Canada Q&A

Hasbro seems to be shying away from deluxe-class Decepticon ground-based military vehicles. We got Brawl and Wreckage from the first movie line, and only Hailstorm since then (not counting repaints). Was this a deliberate design choice (perhaps at the request of the US Military) or just the way things worked out?

Why was PCC DoubleClutch so badly designed?

Re: Submit your questions for the TFcon 2011 Hasbro Canada Q&A

Will you release the Frenzy/Rumble figures in a different line?

What makes you decided to make certain small time charecters in the G1 Homage lines like Skullgrin or Guzzle?

Will you make updates for Beast Wars/ RID/ Unicron Trilogy figures in the next few years?

Will The eventual Black repaint of the RTS Optimus Priem get released will it be Scourge or Nemesis Prime?

How do terrible figures get made without realizing they suck? like most of Armada, Cybertron Backstop, ROTF Blazemaster, ROTF Sideways?

Re: Submit your questions for the TFcon 2011 Hasbro Canada Q&A

With the advent of Mech-Tech, Cyberverse, and the 3mm clip system, are there any plans to make separate weapon packs to load up figures with more weapons and more play value?
