    Looks like Micronauts is getting the Teen Titans treatment from Allspark studios.

    --

    It looks like that Micronauts reboot is actually a thing that'll come out ...

    Logline: "When a team of alien explorers come to earth in pursuit of evil, they discover in our world they are the size of action figures."

    Advertised as 26 eps. x 22 mins. From the guy who watched Your Name. on Twitter

    Looks like those guys from the Revolution box set were previews of the show.

    Yeah I support this decision. I know it’s immature but I couldn’t help but snicker seeing a toy company’s name before a movie. But also holy shit Zords is coming back?

    Very curious if at some point this will impact one of the other TF fansites out there that happens to hold a domain Hasbro is probably VERY interested in owning now.

    Incidentally, was fun when Hasbro's use of the term came up while chatting with Bob Skir at TFcon, given he remarked that he'd initially forgotten he'd come up with the term way back when for Beast Machines when Hasbro started using it more heavily in 2007, and is amazed just how much it's being used now. Goes to show you never know what contributions will make huge impacts down the road.

    I guess, with MLP ending and new franchises being adapted, it's as good a moment as any for a rebrand. I'm curious what they will do with Zoids.

    I hope we get Zoids Wild toys. I've been watching Japanese language reviews of them and...wow, they're badass. I know lots of the older Zoids toys were awesome but the Wild stuff ain't no slouch either.

    I feel like it\'s a smarter branding move to stick to using Hasbro Studios, rather than creating a studio name that\'s tangential to one product line and has nothing to do with the others. I mean, why would MLP or Power Rangers come to me from \"Allspark Studios?\" Isn\'t the Allspark just related to Transformers. The association feels a bit odd. It doesn\'t really hurt me either way, but hey, I just don\'t quite get the branding decision...

    I think it's a case of wanting to distance themselves from "Hasbro" purely on a "people can't take a toy company seriously" basis. Which may not be wrong, honestly, as when audiences and movie insiders think "Hasbro" they'll think "toy company" first and that'll bias their thinking.

    It's just them porting over Zoids Wild, the current Japanese series. These are smaller Zoids with open-air cockpits.

    The question is what will the studio do with the Zoids. Will they produce their own animated content, or will this studio also dub anime?

    Glad that someone in the comments already brought up the strange absence of the Micronauts series from the press release because that was bugging me reading it. Hopefully, that means that season/series is already in post-production and is coming out soon.

    Excited for the new Zoids. I remember liking the Zoids series that aired during my childhood a lot better than the concurrent Unicron trilogy. If it's just a dub of the new anime, I hope its a great one. If it is an original cartoon, I hope it measures up well.

    They’d better dub Zoids Genesis as well!

    The only Zoids I had were as a kid in the 80’s and they had a wind up feature...
