Oh, this just gets better....

So they ran a Christmas contest, and people still haven't received their prizes.

And now it's April.

Is there a rising tide of anger?  A link to something we could read perhaps?


I love schadenfreude.

Maybe more sponsors will leave and Hasbro revokes their privilege card?  Good for BBTS.

Man, this day just gets better and better!

An unexpected but outstanding move by BBTS. I applaud their integrity.

Now that they’re going to lose an income stream?  I imagine there’s a good deal of internal bickering between the chief offender at JTA and the other owner who keeps a lower profile.

I’ve also heard that at some convention appearances the two of them were at odds, and their interactions were described as “bickering”.  I wonder why?!?!  ;)

Oh snap!  Well hey he brought that on himself.  It’s ****** constant.

And he’s got no real reason to complain people focused on him either.  He’s the guy saying there should be some hierarchy in website interaction with Hasbro and a lot of places should be kicked off that list.  That’s a pretty troll move on his part, and shows he’s just a prick really.

Dorkside Toys dropped JTA, too.  Evidently they got flooded with emails and messages on social media imploring them to cut ties, also.

Oof, yeah that was one of their more constantly advertised stores ok their front page too.

Oh well there are always amazon and eBay affiliate links you can exploit without ever publicly stating your “news” is really just a sponsor link shilling **** to your readers.
