    Not sure if this video was mentioned on our threads.

    There is a commercial for Hasbro and Discovery’s HUB TV Channel, surfacing here and there on the net. I’ve managed to find a good copy and uploaded it to YouTube. Nothing much to mention other than that, there will be a some sort of tv series regarding Transformers. Nothing is mentioned about the tv series, but I’m pretty sure that we’ll be seeing that commercial soon. Apparently, there are rumors that this TV Commercial was shown at the ToyFair. Can anyone who visited the ToyFair 2010 confirm this ?

    Watch it here : YouTube - Hasbro's HUB TV Commercial

    Enjoy !!! :) 

    Edit :
    This commercial is now available at Hasbro's official website, but the streaming is Poor. Good thing I uploaded it to YouTube. :)  Enjoy the HUB everyone :)

    Simultaneous cool and missed-irony-fail points for using Daft Punk's "Technologic" there, Hasbro.

    Classic TF logo in that commercial. Handy stock graphic ... or possible indication of G1 cartoon being aired? Rampant unfounded speculation is fun!

    At 0:20? That was the logo from the new "united" toyline (Hunt for the 'Cons, Generations, etc.) shown at Toy Fair.

    Hum, would be pretty cool if we got both new cartoons and some of the old series shown as well sort of like some the other networks mix in both new stuff and classic cartoons.

    looks promising! a whole channel devoted to Hasbro brands? I'm interested to see how this plays out. Hopefully it won't rerun the same show 20 times like ESPN. What does it matter if you miss sports center, its on every 30 minutes.

    I'm pretty sure my TV would short out from the awesome overload if that were to happen.

    Whoops, so it is. When viewed in a quick glance way as in the video, it reminds a lot of the title card of the original cartoon. Oh well. I planted the seeds of raving madness regardless. :)

    Speculation that "romper room and friends" is the one with the dog from the sneak preview pic.

    What I picked up from the trailer is that this is a collaboration rather than a full Hasbro channel. So some of discovery kids previous cartoons are being reaired here. Bummer.

    Thinking its the discovery kids channel though. If you get that, then you may be set.
