If Hasbro truly loved money, they would make that Stewart Stormtrooper available to all. I would buy it, and then buy it again and again and again for all of my friends.
They actually don't want your money. They are busy chasing Hollywood's money and trying to rebrand themselves as a multimedia entertainment company (which is why they developed the Hub). Of course they forget that their most recognizable properties (TFs & GI Joe) was developed mostly by Marvel Comics.
I don't think it's a case of forgetting, but rather of it being irrelevant or a non-issue, IMO. Hasbro hired Marvel to develop those properties in the '80s, but they always belonged to Hasbro. Kinda like how comic book creators can create new books for Marvel, but the books are the property of Marvel.
