    One of the BotBots would have to be the Spider-Ham equivalent.

    If "Hasbro never learned" they would still be trying to make nothing but toys even though we are in a market where sales of toys across all age groups other than "toddler" are dwindling. It's good that they're trying and failing to get into other kind of media because it show's they're trying to react instead of letting the wind take them.

    I'd love to get both. If we could only get one or the other, though, I'd say live action because we get our animated Transformers stuff in the TV shows. Having new animated Transformers movies would just be even better.

    Sweet. We might get a decent movie or two out of this.

    Wasn't Hasbro some years ago in talks of buying/merging with Dreamworks? It seems Disney told Hasbro they would consider them the competition and that would affect the license of Disney merch that Hasbro makes, like Star Wars and Marvel.

    This is a bad take. The content business is literally exploding. New buyers are emerging all the time, all of whom need content to compete (Disney+, Warner, Apple soon to be competing with Netflix, Amazon and the other established platforms). Moreover, they all need KIDS content. Exclusive kids content is a massive differentiator because parents want a safe, reliable place they can turn to to entertain their kids. Hasbro should be doing everything it can to be in that game, and to control production and distribution as much as possible. Literally one hit show would mean millions to the bottom line, drive revenues across all product lines, and give them much more leverage with respect to the rest of their IP portfolio.

    With Cyberverse and Micronauts, I hope these would serve as good launching pads
