Honest to God, I saw the title and thought her first name was Ninja for a second.
Actually, it’s about ethics in gaming journalism!
Congratulations, Mrs. Scales!
Is it so freaking hard to say "Congrats" anymore?
Props to her for the job!
Being one of the many people who work together to make sure the media we take for granted in the first place, I wish her the best of luck!
Excellent, someone to influence more Fem-bots in our TF cartoons.
Please make Orthia vs Megatronia happen!
is allspark studios involved with the wfc show?
I was actually talking about the other guy I quoted. You know the type. God forbid a woman in the entertainment industry is just, you know, doing a job. But no, to these people, it's a sign of some sort of nefarious "SJW" conspiracy. They did it when Christina Hodson was announced to write Bumblebee, they did it when Hailee Steinfeld was announced to play Charlie. They do it every time there's a news story about a woman doing anything in any movie, game, or comic franchise.
Isn't that exactly what your earlier post below is?
I see these talking points all the time. It's a pervasive stain on every fandom. Some people might not have heard them though, and so I asked him to elaborate to remove any chance of plausible deniability.
So that's a yes.
Any leaked images of the Siege Netflix Show? Curious of the art style.
A yes to what exactly? Yes, I'm trying to expose toxic elements of our fandom.
Just a couple of left field predictions I had...
Nope, that's Roosterteeth as far as I know.
I'm sure Allspark's name will be in the credits, but actual production is all done by RT.
If WFC ever happens. Once again Hasbro has all the timing of a stuttering pack mule as far as having the intended toy-selling media air even remotely close to when the toyline in general is on shelves. Hell, we're already rumouring and speculating on WFC's sequel and we don't even have a stitch of info on the show itself.
Assumptions are the mother of all f**k ups.
And, could I ask, what your basis for these left field predictions is?
Looked up what else this person has done before this role, as the article didn't really go into that...
Vice President of international distribution for Hasbro for 5 years, Senior Sales Director in the UK for 3 before that, Head of Sales and Marketing for a TV and sports distribution agency for like 10 years before that.
So she's got some chops, both in the media biz and in knowing Hasbro's business. I'd have figured they'd go for someone with more direct animation / media experience, but at the executive level I have frankly no idea how important that direct experience would be to their day to day decisions.
Finn Arnesen, by comparison, was the producer on robotboy, the cramp twins, and scooby doo: mystery Inc (which alone gives him some cred to me, but I'm biased), but beyond that, he worked on series development for TBS, whatever that means, and some program management and sports media posts. So maybe a bit different, maybe not, I don't really know those roles that well. Tradeoff of direct TV / show development experience vs. experience with Hasbro itself, both of which could be valuable.
Let's see how shit develops, I guess. Maybe it won't be the flaming end of the world?
Well it’s a wfc trilogy, as in from what I can tell, they are just going to keep the name “war for cybertron” but then change the last bit of the title from “siege” to something else. So the show will come out around when either the 2nd part of it starts, or at the end of the current siege line.
