    Found this on Deadline.com. It can only get better once they release the Prime toys, right?

    I hope this is true! I mean I don't want Transformers Prime and My Little Pony FIM to go the same way as poor TFA did. But probably not considering all the hard work Hasbro's put into it.

    While this is a good business move for them so long as they aren't losing money on the network, as its basically a focused advertising medium 24/7 for Hasbro products, I can't help but think their rate of return is much better on sales through the Transformers movie lines.

    I'd be more interested to see how Hub viewership and related toyline revenues in america correspond to related toyline sales in nations where the Hub shows are carried by other networks (such as Canada), or nations where the shows are not available at all.

    I think this is all relatively good news. It's not mind blowing, but it at least tells us Hasbro's investment is paying off so far and looks like it will continue to do so.

    They probably mean parents are buying Transformers in general because of the show.

    Although the news does sound positive; its just a wait and see.

    It should be interesting how much profit the HUB and Hasbro will make after December and January.
