If you were Hasbro and you had a movie coming out in a few months you would put all your efforts into that toyline....you would be dumb not to. The 25th line is not some money making machine you think it is, although a few people on this board will tell you it was Hasbros number 2 toyline (Because of constantly not finding jack on the shelves makes something hot). I doubt it Ranked in the top 10 toys for Hasbro. If the line was truly hot seller for Hasbro you would have had more new molds instead of constant reused ones.
The line will return in 2010 after the movie dies down. Just like TF did.......They had Classics.....then movie stuff....after movie died down they gave us Universe/Classics 2.0.
I wish I had a Dollar for everytime someone makes a post like this....Id be rich. This line wasnt even suppose to be as big as it was....so lets stop complaining about it and be happy with the Figs we got.....
I hate Cobra Divers......dont own one, but I plan on buying a ton of those movie Ripcords and getting rid of the heads and making cool customs with them.....always look at the brighter side of things.
Really though weigh the whole thing out.....if you were hasbro which line would you concentrate on now?
Everytime I went into Target or Walmart and asked about the 25th line to a manager I got the same lines....."Its not a hot seller"...."We keep ordering more but they give us one case"...."We may be dropping the line all together".......I dont know how many times I read on this board that a Walmart said they were going to stop selling the 25th line.....A line with constent What the Hells by us and the stores isnt a hot seller. Just because the same loser is sitting out side of Target every morning buying the one case the store got doesnt make it a hot seller......this line seems hot because the Scalpers beat everyone to the stores and put the cases on Ebay.....this line seems hot because fanboys wouldnt have some patience and wait a month for a store to get figs so they paid $60 for a fig......this line again isnt the hot seller you think it is.....

I'm okay with the break as well, as there are a few items I want to catch up on and need a break monetarily (plus I am into the MOTUC line, but is more affordable with one figure a month).
However, my biggest gripe is rubbing those Stingers and FLAKs in our faces and then just swiping them away. I was looking forward to the Stinger and FLAK as much as the HISS, the AWE Striker, Rattler, Skyhawk, Water Mocassin, FANG, CLAW, VAMP, MOBAT, RAM, Armadillo, Conquest, SHARC, and the Flight Pod. But now, after showing us the fantastic pictures and doing the pre-marketing, they are gone indefinately. That is wrong.

Then my question is do the Chuckles/Mindbender Cobra Island 7-packs come out before or after the movie?
Because I need to buy a couple dozen of that Cobra set.
I see what you did there.
