    Its not going to kill the goddamn franchise, just because the movie-verse isn't doing well. Hasbro, believe it or not, is a toy company. They have a bajillion and one iterations to make money off of. That's not to say it won't croak someday for one reason or another like poor G.I. Joe is. It will, but the movieverse flopping isn't going to be the one to kill it.

    G.I Joe hasn't been doing very well for a while and its far older then Transformers.

    The first movie wasn't bad and the toyline was decent. The second was a snoozefest.

    Transformers otoh is one of Hasbro's top sellers, so it will do just fine with or without the sucky movies.

    These are two
    of the eighties hottest properties. Go joe is a little older but it reinvented itself then and redefined what it was. Gi Joe was having a constant presence on the shelf prior to the second movie. Sure there were lean years but transformers experienced that too. Based on what happened to potp toyline I’d say, the transformers franchise could head for lean years again if the bumblebee movie can’t move toys. I’d prefer to avoid that and they seem to be headed in a correct more g1 direction.

    GI Joe was around when my boyfriend was a kid. And he's a 70s child.

    You do make some fair points.

    As far as the toys go, PotP is decentish. We own some and like the ones we've got.

    Cyberverse has QC probs.

    Bay fans are enjoying the Studio Series.

    We have the repro re-releases. I haven't bought one yet, because I'm waiting for the one I want.

    Plus we are getting Seige and Botbots seems to be a surprise hit.

    So I don't think its too bad.
