I'm really excited for TR and some upcoming RiD figures.
Hell yes I am a Hasbro fan!
The are the reason we have all of the below...just a random sampling
You could say I'm a bit of a Hasbro fan. More on the way! I have some 3rd party, too. Plus, missing from that pick are Primus and Unicron.
And, with Titans Return, my paycheck may as well have a direct deposit to Hasbro. lol

I like this thread idea, while no company is perfect I think that Hasbro does a lot of things well and the fandom benefits as a result. In the last few years we have seen a considerable number of collector grade releases, with combiner wars and some of the generations figures such as Metroplex, Whirl, Springer, Magnus, and others.
The negativity that I see on the boards directed towards Hasbro gets distracting and unproductive. They have done a lot right and are responsible both for the creation and the continued health of the brand that we all love.
Far be it from me to not show my appreciation for Hasbro, so I'll just jump on the train and say thank you Hasbro for the most recent bot I feel they did a really good job with: Thank you Hasbro for G1 Scorponok.
I think the fact that we had two Junkions at retail as well as a Black Shadow when there was no reason to even think of a US release speaks volumes of how good Hasbro treats us. In a toyline aimed at 4-8 year olds, they throw in references to stuff that only turbonerds like us would get. Crosscut. At retail. There's not enough good to say about Hasbro.
since this is a hasbro thread.. does it include MLP?
I am kinda a hasbro fans since I collect both transformer and MLP toys.. yeah, hasbro is milking me like a cow...
why a fan of trasnformer but hate hasbro is beyond me... it's like a yu-gi-oh fans that dislike the official card game and rather pay for pirated card that cost 3 times the price...
24 posts before a slam on Hasbro. My point stands.
This room is at least 90% Hasbro. This room makes me happy.
(Not in pic: walls with rest of movieeverse, wall with MP, Alts, Prime, 3p CHUG, WFC/FOC, and most of AEC - can't get all 4 walls in one shot)
Not sure, I've heard bumblebee and most likely the new hotrod.
No company is perfect. I'm glad the brand is still alive despite the decisions and films I didn't care for. I'm excited to see what else is announced this year. I'd love a stateside Blu-ray release of TFTM with some f&#&#&#@ subtitles!
Where is the slam on HASBRO?
Ugh! It's not even accurate! No Robo-Testicles!
I had to read it a few times.
Man... it reads positive despite the backhanded nature.
But we wouldn't want more of it.
If ya don't think it belongs then hit that li'l red triangle.
Don't get the pony love. Where does that come from? Maybe if they were like brave star's horse or she ra's horse.
Just TRU exclusive MP Bumblebee. I think the price will be in the $60-$70 range, and no one has confirmed accessories.
actually they have more personality than both horses..
like the pink pony in my picture.. long story short.. she is basically deadpool without the killing which is why she is deadpool's favorite pony..
I could not have said that any better myself. I've never been one to put Hasbro on a pedestal but I do truly appreciate them for 2 simple things. Bringing TF's to the states in the eighties when I was a kid and creating such an awesome toyline. And keeping this awesome toyline alive for the last 30+ years. OK, that is 3 things.
Being a dad of 3 boys Hasbro has allowed me to to continue collecting the bots I love while sharing the hobby with my kids. And doing it in an affordable way. I appreciate them and the product they put out for that. Not every bot Hasbro has released has been a home run for me. But they have produced enough cool figures that I've got an awesome display and collection which I thoroughly enjoy.
Gonna bump my zombie thread.
How we feeling bout HASBRO these days post CW, pre TR?
As much as people diss the Universe Ratchet/Ironhide mold, I adore it. It's transformation I enjoy and never get sick of. Probably one of my favorite molds from Hasbro. Combiner Wars was also very fun as well. I don't even care most of them were repaints. I liked each mold from the line for different reasons. In the words of Deluxe Baldwin "Hail Hasbro".
I'm feeling pretty good about Hasbro. I think the Titanmaster gimmick is excellent unto itself, if only slightly misguided in that I would have preferred actual Headmasters, Targetmasters and Powermasters.
I appreciate what Hasbro did for Combiner Wars. G1 Predaking-sized Scramble City combiners are pretty awesome. A couple balls were dropped...heavy reuse of molds and not getting the Technobots into the mainline in favor of standard Autobot cars...but overall, very satisfied.
Hasbro could be more aggressive in the Masterpiece department...but even that doesn't bother me much.
Feeling more excited for TR than CW because there's an immediate playability factor to it. No need to track down another 4 figures, everybody's got a second bot to fiddle with from the start. Even the lone Headmasters come with a little vehicle/beast/thingy.
