Bring Back Transformers G1 To Boost Hasbro Revenue, Investor Recommends
BaCon, Scaleface - Saturday, December 14, 2013


Well known investing analysts and advisers, The Motely Fool, have posted an interesting article about Hasbro's stock price is reflected by the rise and fall of is Transformers product's popularity. Citing the correlation of the Hollywood movies boost in sales and subsequent slum in years between. The Motley Fool has two suggestions to boost their sales; create live actions TV shows and most surprising of all, Bring back Transformers G1 cartoons. I know many of you reading this could not agree more and will this quite interesting.
Bring back Gen 1 Transformers
Walt Disney and Hasbro appeal to the nostalgic collector by releasing toy lines such as the Star Wars: The Black Series a nd reissuing old Star Wars toys. Moreover, Hasbro occasionally releases a Transformers Generation 1 reissue geared toward people who enjoyed Transformer's original line in their childhood. Hasbro could take this a step further and produce an animated (not computer generated) series that picks up where it left off during the second season in 1986 bridging the gap between that time period and the animated classic Transformers: The Movie. An hour long show with a shortened season could conserve on costs. A good working title: Transformers 1980s. Hasbro could also do a spinoff series that centers on post Transformers: The Movie characters such as Headmasters


How would you like it if Hasbro brought back Transformers G1?

Oh they can't make a new cartoon and put it between Season 2 and the movie! None of Hasbro's tricks will work then! Can't make Megatron turn into Galvatron, can't kill Optimus Prime, can't have Unicron show up.   Heck, maybe they can put something between Rebirth and Beast Wars. That would work... read more
