    Mostly because Toei is essentially Japan Disney, plus they focus more on Japan itself then they do globally.

    Obviously Power Rangers isn't going to transition into an animated series, as long as Toei is doing Super Sentai, but if Hasbro wanted to do animated stuff, too. They can't stop them. They have no control over the Power Rangers IP.

    About time they decide to do this. Just unfortunate that they can't see fit to licate such a studio somewhere in North America. Not to get political, of course, but disappointing.

    I'm sure Hasbro could do Hyperforce as an animated series.

    At least it's Ireland and not China or India. But it'll still evaporate once the tax handouts expire.

    Ehhhhh, I mean, they control the source material for PR, so there's that.

    I'd love more animated Transformers movies, whether they're tied to the TV shows or not! It would even be cool to see a series of connected animated Transformers movies, actually.

    In some ways, I’d prefer this to live action.

    So aside from Transformers, MLP & G.I. Joe, what viable IPs does Hasbro have that could make for good animated projects?

    No, not M.A.S.K.

    It’s not just that though. They can also produce for others, so it becomes a potential revenue source. Access to Irish tax incentives too.

    I would like them to make direct to digital movies adapting arcs of their comics. Like the Nightmare Rarity arc of My Little Pony. Or Last Stand of the Wreckers.
    I wonder how much robot on robot violence they can get away with.

    Clue?

    Yeah. A potentially rated R Ryan Reynolds movie where they go globetrotting. It sounds far removed from what Clue typically is, but it’s not the first time the Clue cast has gone country-hopping. Still, it only vaguely sounds like Clue. Reynold’s involvement is the only thing that merits interest at this point.

    Not gonna lie, I'd probably watch it. With all the various Transformers continuities over the years it could really cool if done right.
