I was wondering when this would happen. Thanks for the info 'More. Actually at a second glance, besides the main page, most of the site looks unfinished.

Just took a look at the new site, MUCH better than the old one. I have to laugh though, I looked at the stock photos of the Universe TFs, and most of them look like they're mis-transformed. Legends Hound doesn't have the windshield up, and Voyager Nemesis Prime has his leg side panels up instead of down. I mean, come on, you guys make the toys, can't YOU transform them right?

Hasbro's designers don't take the photos.

That's what I figured; they probably just have a PR group do the photos who really only know how to take photos. I'm just pseudo-surprised Hasbro doesn't have a QC person to just check them before they use them for stock photos. Or at least they could choose photographers who know how to follow instructions with diagrams. ;)

I'm not sure there ARE instructions yet when the photographers take the stock photos.

True. Pictures aside, I like the new layout of the website. Seems much easier to get around.

It's nice to see that the website is now more openly promoting Animated and Universe along with the Movie line.
