    I haven't seen the movie yet, but from What I've heard, KSI and Cemetary Wind are basically Hasbro, killing the old guys to bring in the better, less costly transformers. Idk if this has been pointed out already but... Thoughts?

    Basically. I think it was flat out stated when Hound (I believe) said that he didn't like knockoffs. Which is the quality level TF4 toys are.

    Just kidding! Hasbro actually has worse quality than KO's. See: MP Grimlock

    I knew it wasn't Hound, but I couldn't remember who exactly.

    Takara is better, but not by much.

    This thread doesn't even make sense on the most basic level.

    Takara = Hasbro.

    They're both responsible for making the same figures. They even use the same factories. A Takara figure and a Hasbro figure are poured from the same moulds and even the same plastics in most cases.

    I could see KSI as 3rd parties.

    I peg Hasbro/Takara as "The Creators." I sometimes imagine that there's a Hasbro logo on Prime.

    This, they are from the same manufacturing place, the only thing Takara differs from are the paint applications.

    They're obviously like MECH in Transformers Prime. I don't see why you guys think it's right to deduceq they're like Hasbro instead

    My Sig got taken down faster. Lol

    But I doubt Hasbro would make fun of themselves.
