YES ! they were submitted but then asked to be re-worded because they didnt fit in the rules that were posted in my first post

so I had to re-word them to fit a little better

next set is due in less than two weeks

and every two weeks after that!

How about something along the lines of; "If the :shadow: Red Shadow Set proves popular at convention time, is there any chance of :shadow: Red Shadow figures being mass-produced for sale in toy shops and the primary marketplace? I don't know if the convention team has that level of influence with Hasbro, (hopefully you do!), but it'd be a shame if after all your efforts in creating new :shadow: Red Shadow toys, the figures were not available to the newer generation of younger shop-going fans."
Just a thought. Could pave the way for the return of more :af: Action Force figures to the shops, too.

I'm hoping that they'd put forward the proposal to Hasbro on our behalf. It's gonna suck if we get this close to having the Shads back in the shops where kids could buy 'em, only to fall at the final hurdle...

Heck, if they became part of the current range, we may even see them in a film someday! :mrgreen:

It's a possibility, however unlikely...

here is the bottom line, IF THE SET SELLS OUT, it will catch Habros Eyes, THE ORIGINAL CST sold out, at the very first convention and ever since we have been getting Crimson Guard type sets from Hasbro.

If it doesnt sell out, then our chances go back down

How about something about the creative process?

"we here at bftb are intrigued about the creative process. How far in advance is the subject matter agreed? Do you have full freedom to select a subject matter before submitting it to hasbro for outline approval? Once the concept etc is approved is it then a matter of producing a prototype for hasbros final approval?"

obviously that's several questions, so might be better for us to refine them a little first?
