    Hasbro’s CEO Brian Goldner today during a company earnings conference call made hint to the possibility that G.I. Joe, Transformers and My Little Pony could be returning to television in 2010. Goldner stated that they planned to have television support for these three properties along with Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a number of Marvel related projects, and that they plan to reveal more details about these projects at their Hasbro Investor Day event which will be held on November 5, 2009 at their headquarters in Rhode Island.

    Goldner also confirmed that Transformers 3 had been giving a go by Paramount with a July 1, 2011 release date and that they were also moving forward with a squeal for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra.

    Goldner also stated during the Q&A portion of the call when asked about the statues of the long rumored Star Wars live-action television series from Lucas Entertainment, that to the best of his knowledge development was still ongoing and the show should come sometime in the future. When asked if Hasbro was working with Lucas to bring any Star Wars related programming to their new television network with Discovery Communication, he stated not at this time.

    Looks like it.

    However,I fear it will immediately get canned for TF3 and its toy line.

    If the series comes in 2010, and TF3 doesn't hit until 2011, why would it be immediately canned?


    I welcome any and all change to Transformers with open arms. I think TF:A showed us that new and different can be a good thing.

    That's great news. Wonder if it'll be based on any existing universe or something new.

    Interesting... I wonder what the new TF series will be like?

    And they're also working on a sequel to GI Joe: Rise of Cobra? Cool...

    Great news. I was hoping that TF3 coming earlier than we had expected wouldn't stop Hasbro from making a new show for next year. It'll be intersting to see what they have in store for us, and how big it's toy line will be (it'll have one, just probably not a very large one).

    Edit: Thinking about this some more, if it isn't directly based off of the Movie-verse, I think it'll have some kind of connection/similarities to it. I'm hoping that they continue the show after TF3 has it's run on shelves, instead of just dropping it. We'll just have to wait and see what they do with it. I won't be surprised if, along with Prime, Megs, and Starscream, Bumblebee ends up as a character in the show.

    nope, they're working on a squeal... not exactly sure what that means, but i hope its like a sequel with pigs!

    and i look forward to another new series, even if it is just filler between the movies...maybe it'll be an extension of animated, much like beast machines was to beast wars...

    Why do I have a funny feeling that they are going to do a cartoon based on the movieverse?

    He's saying they're gonna can it because once the movie gets close, it'll stop abruptly and get thrown in like a towel so Bay and Hasbro can get rich again!

    Animated went that way, and thats how this new show's gonna go too. It'll be even shorter than Animated, though, if it starts in 2010 and then ends a year later for 3.

    There are some things one should consider about Animated, though. Animated was developed in 2006 during the production of the 2007 TF movie. We saw the logo and that picture of Optimus Prime (that sparked fury and outrage on this forum) in early 2007.

    While Hasbro has never stated this clearly, from what I have gathered, Animated was created by Hasbro to hedge their bets. It was done in a style that was the complete opposite of the movie so that Hasbro would be able to immediately distance themselves from the movie IF the movie bombed.

    Fortunately (except perhaps for Animated), the movie was more successful than anybody expected, so technically, Animated was no longer needed.



    I think any television series Hasbro will do in the future will not be canceled like that. Animated evidently just didn't fit with how Hasbro wanted to market the brand anymore, and its likely future tv shows will better fit what Hasbro wants.

    Exactly ~ i'd look for something that is movie-esque without being so rooted in the movies that hasbro can't do what they want with it. I suspect thing slike Don's G1-meets-the-movie look or that Terrible animation Hasbro had on their site with the Movie BB with G1 head will be the direction, something that embraces both sides...

    Well explained to those who are like why would it get canned.
    Hasbro won't want two major toylines butting their heads at once. Therefor, one of them has to get canned. This would also mean Universe gets the short end of the stick again.
