Yeah, but most of that problem has to do with the retailers not ordering or stocking enough. At least the fans haven`t paid for those figures that haven`t appeared in stores yet. It`s not as bad as paying $40 for just one magazine.
Or so they claim. I'm convinced that's more or less Hasbro needing a scapegoat as well.

You can't really blame Hasbro for that. When retailers have shelves packed with Armada Smokescreen, Unicron, and Energon Scorponok they're not likely to be ordering a bunch more toys that they can't help but assume won't sell.
Well, like Luke said, that's their fault for having a weak wave 1. Also, they obviously package too many of a given figure. Part of me also wonders if Hasbro has a quota established for waves so that you have to buy a certain amount before you get the next wave.
