Hasbro are using the DW proliferation to their well-worded advantage and generally ignoring the fact sales of the books have taken a downwards turn. On the other hand, overall sales are very, very healthy.

Side-note... Unicron looks very strange with his horns twisted down. Too many fundamentalist whackos amongst investors, perhaps?

The second page seems to imply Energon will have 52 episodes. I don't know if this has been confirmed anywhere, but I hope it's true.

It's good to know they're selling well. I don't think I've ever seen kids looking at TFs in the stores, but it looks like the younger set are indeed buying a lot of them.

Yes, it sucks to have competition...j/k.
I've finally managed to get a Demolisher when others have gotten it earlier than me.
And, yeah, Energon is 56. That's the standard set for Hasbro right now.

And, I want the shoes.

Hopefully, you have small feet... LOL.. I've seen shoes have been sold at Wal-Mart stores. I've bought my son (3 yrs old), 2 pairs of shoes, and a pair of water shoes already with the Transformers insignias on them. They are designed for children. The pairs that I have picked up were designed by SG Footwear. So when that link refers to clothing lines from HPG, it must be something new.

Looks like an insect with the horns turned down.

Ah, I thought these were something different than the kid's ones, basically actually adult shoes.
I hope that's what it is with the different name attached. I could use a new pair.

Well.. you never know.. Like I said.. the shoes that I've picked up from Wal-Mart bearing the Transformers logos.. have been childrens shoes and put out by a company called SG Footwear. The shoes shown in the link come from a different company called, HPG. So.. guess we'll just have to wait and see as to if they will be childrens shoes as well.. or if they will provide adult sized shoes as well....
