    Then what do you suppose Hasbro's 25+ year successful toyline was instead of Transformers in that universe?

    Hasbro just had GI Joe, Gobots ruled the toy lines as the top transforming robot line :D

    Hmm? MB only distributed Transformers toys for a year, and then only in Europe... :confused:

    I think what he meant was, the Bayverse world, if TF wasn't around as a toyline, what would have happened for Hasbro.

    Hasbro would have died long ago in the movieverse.

    Actually, in the Bayverse human technology was a result of reverse engineering Megatron. Without him, Hasbro probably never would have started...

    Explodios, a joint action figure venture between Hasbro and Vulcan fireworks. They made a shit ton of money because every time you blew one up, you had to buy it again, and the kids loved it because they exploded in giant fireballs.


    Hell on collectors though.
