I can see both sides of things here. I wouldn't mind seeing a text list of most to all of what's coming for the year, just to know what the budget is for the year. For some people it might not matter, but I really have to try to plan my spending on even the more affordable stuff, since my collecting budget isn't all that much.
I guess overall, I don't mind getting it in little doses throughout the year - as long as we get it. Hasbro has started to get way too stingy with information, and I'm shocked we don't know more about 2008 than we already do at this point. There has been a lot of rumors, retail lists, and speculation - but it seems like we often have more "official" information and pics at this point. I guess I don't need it all at once, but to know what was on its way from now until Spring or so would be ok. And, as others have mentioned, denying things that have been found in store listings only to see them released later is a bit annoying as well.
I kind of miss the vintage days of just finding out what was new when you found it on the pegs (or on the cardbacks, that was fun too). Sadly, in this day and age, that doesn't work anymore. I've found that more often than not if I see something I want, I better pick it up, because it likely won't be there again. That doesn't always happen, but it seems to be more of a problem for people these days. If only it could be so simple as the vintage days (or maybe even the initial POTF2 days for the most part). I remember hitting the toy aisle as a kid, and I think you could have found pretty much any figure you were looking for, for the most part. Then the scalping/value/making money aspect of collecting came into play, making things like that non-existent. Heck, without using the internet to know when/if something is going to hit, I think we'd miss out on quite a few things these days.
