    Posted this morning at TheWrap.com (which I saw via AVClub.com).

    A leaked internal email memo reveals that a movie based on all Hasbro toys is in very early stages of development.

    If this actually goes anywhere, seems like a lock that it would contain Transformers, GI Joe, and My Little Pony. (crossover!)

    I'm not sure this is a good idea... but hey, there it is.

    Why do I feel like I've heard this before? Was it announced at NY Toyfair?

    I could see it being a cute D2DVD release, but a full blown theatrical film featuring nothing but your specific company's toys? That's just a bit too much self promotion.

    Yeah, there was something a while back outlining all the movie ideas they were toying with in addition to Transformers and GI Joe; Battleship, Monopoly, Stretch Armstrong, My Little Pony, and this Hasbro Factory idea.

    *edit*

    There it is, dated May 25th:

    It'll appeal to the little'uns, and I think that's where it's aimed. This one probably ain't for us, folks.

    Could be a few nice scenes/references that may be fun, might be worth checking out on DVD.

    I'll wait for more details before thinking any more about it. :)

    And if they get voices that properly fit the toys, like if a Prime comes to life, then Peter Cullen, Primal has Garry Chalk, etc.

    When we heard this the first time I was thinking more like a cross between Night at the Museum and Small Soldiers.

    I wonder if they're using just the toys... or if they're actually going to take movie versions of each of the characters, and do a cross-over.

    Somebody at Hasbro has too much time, and too much 'creative freedom' this has fail written all over it.

    Sounds EXACTLY like something Lego is doing.
