News Post: How Hasbro Decides Which Toys They Will Turn Into Movies
Are Hasbro a toy company or vice versa?
They no longer call themselves as "A Toy Company". They now call themselves "A Branded Play Company". Take a look at their Corporate video: TFW2005 Coverage Of Hasbro's Investor Day 2011 - Transformers News - TFW2005
Siiiick a Magic movie. Sign me up.
Whatever they call themselves, their movies suck. Pretty ironic to read an article talking about characters when we have yet to get any interesting potrayals on the big screen.
Yep. 21st Century Fox is developing it. Little bit of info was told at the Toy Fair 2014 Press And Investor Event: TFW2005 Coverage Of Hasbro New York Toy Fair 2014 Investor Event - Transformers News - TFW2005
Lockdown would like a word with you. As would Hound, Crosshairs and Drift. They have been the best movie characters since Optimus, Bumblebee and Ironhide.
I can't wait for the magic the movie. As a avid magic player I approve. My two favorite things transformers and magic are doing well. Yes the movies leave a lot to be desired for transformers but if it grows the brand I am all for it. I will say again age of extinction is the best one and not terrible at all. It was a great action movie and decent transformers movie.
Mattel, give us a He-Man movie.
Already happened, with Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor.
I'm sure they meant: "Michael Bay, please make a He-Man movie."
Was that the one called Masters of the Universe?
No, I meant "Do a movie better than Bay's movies". Which really isn't that hard - all you need is a decent story and characters with personality.
Well TF4 had a decent story and characters with personality...It's safe to say there's much more than that.
Hungry Hungry Hippos has more character and story, but maybe we can make something really compelling out of Battleship....
Given the Bay movies, it's terribly ironic to hear Hasbro say they "look for those brands that have story and character at their foundation".
Yes, because Battleship and Ouiji have STORY and CHARACTER...
That's what I've heard, so I guess I'll have to see AoE before judging all of the movies. But the first three did not agree with me.
It's just too bad Hasbro's majority focus seems to be on properties that have long histories of built and well hammered out fiction. The innovation aspect of Hasbro seem to have been completely sapped out of them. I get that the TF's and GI Joe's make sense because many, many creators have spent decades building their respective fictions, but something new needs to come along or eventually the well will run dry. It's just a matter of time.
Ah. The complaints department of TFW any sign in sheets? Or can I just sit down?
