    They certainly achieved their job, at least in my eyes.

    Congrats to both of them.

    Agreed. What many fans do not see is the fact that Brian created markets for Hasbro where there were not. Transformers franchise became a household name in developing countries. In this digital world where every kid has at least one smart phone/device, Brian ensured that physical toys lived on. Massive respect for the guy. After seeing all the things which he has done, it's clear that Hasbro may not even be around today if it weren't for Brian. It's may sound like an exaggeration, but it's the truth.

    Congratulations to mr. Goldner for getting to ensure even more years of heavily emphasizing quantity over quality and compromising brand integrity all over the world!

    I just love corporate speak. Such fun blather.
    They type so much....and say so little.
    I'm surprised they didn't say "stay tuned".

    Are we yet at the comments of the fiancee experts that will change the corporation for whole from behind their PC?. I envy their revolutionary minds. I want those comments to appear.

    It would still be around. It would just look a lot more like Mattel.

    Congrats to them and the secret to their success!
    With likely many more years of extended profits and revenues to come and new waves on creative fronts and toy concepts.

    Well, that's definitely complicated to respond to. xD I mean it's mostly correct. Only one minor thing really that's not quite accurate in that statement.

    And not going to anytime soon nor want to. They are both doing their jobs to above expectations. Got nothing but praise for them for what they do and the strives forward that's been made possible because of them.

    Too little too late for that. And how that would have driven the company into the ground. Gotta admit that's one thing that was a great thing about old Hasbro corporate culture that carried over to new. How much they ignore that is a blessing. Thank god for Blueprint for that in keeping that out. Which is really ironic itself, but I digress.

    They must be holding the Dinobots molds hostage.

    I hope they can address some of the areas of concern or what with Star Wars decline they are really going to suffer with the demise or further decline of their core brands on top of that.

    Not that some of that is entirely their fault - but really it might have been better if Cyberverse Scouts had never left the drawing programme.

    Yup I couldn't agree more. Somehow prior to the '07 movie, some parts of Asia weren't that exposed to the TF media (i.e. huge chunks of South Asia). Unlike East Asia or South East Asia which were already exposed to the G1 cartoon run on national tv.

    Promoted? The movies are horrible. All ridiculous action, n incoherent plot. A Tf G1 cartoon has better plot synchronization that the movie. Loopholes everywhere. The designs of the robots are generally horrible. (See Megatron part 1 n 2) So many shelf warmers where I live. Is someone paying them to destroy the transformers franchise?
