Hasbro Toy Talk by Jodo


Forum member Jodo has posted a nice read on his blog about the issues we as collectors are facing these days.

Remember  what it was like to actually look forward to walking into a retail store and know you had a fair chance at finding a Star Wars item you actually wanted to buy?  Remember when Hasbro was more creative and able to interest kids with their toys?  Do you recall the pre-2012 disaster with Hasbro, when they were doing an effective job at managing the Star Wars brand?

Check it all out at his blog, and share your thoughts too in our forums.
