Views don't translate to good reception. It just meant that people were interested to see what Combiner Wars promised to be (but wasn't). Similarly, with the movies, quite often. It seems that you believe what Hasbro tells you, but I'm not sure if they do themselves. They can't be that blind. If anything, the reception of Combiner Wars, recent cartoons and most of all the movies, is far worse outside the fandom than it is within. And if the views mean anything, is that there is interest in what Combiner Wars promised to be: A more mature, intelligent, version/continuation of the original Transformers. That's the only message anyone should be getting from this.
