Wow, well... uhm, ok.
We get some rough questions here too (griping is a big thing that has improved and helped the line evolve since its beginings), and I've never been a guy who feels Hasbro deserves to have slack cut them for anything. They're a business, we're consumers, and so there's a set relationship there. I also don't think Hasbro, as professionals, would hold anything against the masses... It's been suggested in the past, but I don't think it's realistic. They're not kids who get so hurt by the opinion of a collector at some site, that they'd shut everyone off and take their ball and go home.
What I do think though, is that you are attempting a professional presentation of the site you "work" for... You need to be equally professional in your correspondence, and that's disappointing to read, actually. Is editing "fair" to the reader? Perhaps, and perhaps not... Then again websites aren't places where readers are entitled to anything either.
Do I agree that the Legends line is a problem? To a degree, yes, and I think Hasbro should maybe listen to the collecting world somewhat, at least, on the Legends assortment (and perhaps trying harder to meld Legacy/Legends into one line again and not attempting 3 separate lines, but I digress).
I can also attest to seeing figures like Yarna, the Organa's and whatnot being pulled... There's nothing "supposed" to that, and it was simply a fact. I'm sure some are still out there though. I know locally we do have some still lingering on (and on and on and on it seems). But really, if you wanted to know what those figure's demise ultimately was, you probably should've just asked that point blank, and attempted less sarcasm (or taken the past "word" that they get destroyed as the answer, and just left it at that). Again, professionalism.
Hasbro's been that courteous back to the community, without trying to dump on things the fans like or want, so fair is fair obviously... Someone could ask for a new AT-AT, and Hasbro could reply saying, "What are you, retarded!? The current one is as good as it ever will get, and if you think you can do better then build one yourself", or something. Of course, a reader/viewer has his or her opinion and expresses it however they want, but I don't think I'd want to convey a **** attitude towards Hasbro through a question from a reader. It could've been edited to be a tad more polite while still addressing the issue it brings up of course, without losing the underlying tone that collector's aren't happy with what they're seeing with the Legacy or Legends Line and a backlog of pegwarmers.
I could rattle off a butt-ton of things I'm not happy about...
-I want that 2nd Hoth Trooper headsculpt in some quantity someday.
-I would like to see a lower price on figures overall.
-There's a handful of figures I'd like to see done because they're overdue.
-I'd like to see some ships/vehicles improved that are 30 years old here now.
But I doubt I drop a
in with some snide remarks, hoping to hear positive news on those fronts... ya know? Or any news really... It's not really worth a response at that point.
