    So, did they show any shots from the new TF shows?
    I sadly cannot rewind the stream, but I caught a glimpse of the new MLP show style... seems CGI.

    Agreed, I mean... there was already a Mrs Potato Head. And I bet tons of other versions. I mean we even had Optimus in that form. :)

    We also had a student Harry Cox. Got called down to the principal's office frequently too.

    Also, my impression of Potato Head is that it is different than Mr or Mrs Potato head in the sense that a single product can have either male or female parts, rather than selling them separately.

    Except from a business perspective, that isn't as profitable as selling the characters separately. They also are not stopping selling Mrs. Potato Head or changing her name whatsoever, so the name change makes no sense.

    To be honest "Mister Potato Head" has sounded like a dated 50s-era toy name since at least the 80s, kinda surprised it's taken so long to ditch it - though given the variety of potential character creation of the toy I'm surprised they aren't running with a plural "Potato Heads" (or "Potato Headz") and haven't (to my knowledge) spun out a whole line of Bot Bots-style minifigure characters as well as the larger toys?

    They probably aren't dropping the number of sku's, just what the sku's are.

    This guy is still with paramount? Seriously? I mean what is even his job? Because clearly he knows nothing about things. I assume he just saw the last scene of TLK and assumed Quintessa was human, instead of using a human disguise.

    And you guys leave the EU now??? ARGH!!! :D 
    Hasbro better make a Pulse here in the EU too, or there'll be trouble. Bad enough we lost Kapowtoys...

    This is a neat fact and I'm definitely going to bring it up at my next neighbor smoking/drinking outing!

    Was anything really said about the next Transformers movie? I know they mentioned Steven Caple Jr. and the producers but that was all I was able to catch. I figured they'd at least make an announcement regarding filming/casting.

    I guess I’m surprised they didn’t just leave Mr Potato head alone (is it true Mrs is staying??) and just add a new SKU for Potato Head Family.
