Hasbro Stock Prime Climbs on Speculation of Disney Acquisition - Advisory Team Deny Talks

By Jack on Wednesday, November 07, 2012



After the election results from last night, many of us are scratching our heads after experts warned us of very close race that didn't turn out that way at all. So take what your are told with a bowling-ball of salt as rumors about the Hasbro acquisition by Disney are pushing stock prices up 6.8%. Hasbro's advisors are denying the events and other analysts are second guessing the deal as not making much sense due to Hasbro's need to cut ties with Disney's competitors.
Hasbro declined comment, citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. CNBC analyst David Faber reported that Hasbro's advisors told him there's "absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form" involving Hasbro or Disney.

Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn't make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. And for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney's competitors.

More Generation 1 News
Hasbro's Transformers site has updated with a new listing page for the Generations Platinum series Triplechangers set. The unusually recolored Astrotrain and Blitzwing now have a suggested retail price, although still no official word on what their coloring is based on. In the United States, this pack is set to run $65.99, putting it a little below the cost of the Insecticon Platinum three-pack. As of now no word on where this will turn up at retail, but it's bound to make an appearance before too long! Click through for a link back to the official product page!
I should probably apologise for that click-bait title, but it does represent the topic of this article quite well. It’s impossible to go one year on an active Transformers forum without seeing at least one discussion about the rarest Transformers of all time.
Paul Dini has tweeted that writer and producer Roger Slifer has died of injuries sustained in a hit-and-run accident in 2012. Slifer, credited as an associate producer on Seasons 2 and 3 of the G1 cartoon and associate story consultant, also wrote the live-action segments featuring Tommy Kennedy used for G1's stint as a Saturday-morning cartoon. Slifer's non-Transformers credits include co-creating Lobo at DC Comics, and being immortalized as the localization name for one of Yu-Gi-Oh!'s three Egyptian God Cards. The tweet can be viewed along with links for more information by continuing to the full story.
Hobby Brinquedos, the same source that brought us the new images of Cyber Battalion Optimus and Bumblebee has loaded new high-resolution stock photos for the Platinum two-pack of G1 triple changers Astrotrain and Blitzwing. While the decos for these - especially Astrotrain - defy analysis, the new looks should be a welcome sight to those who already have older reissues or simply enjoy seeing new ideas on old toys. Click through to check them out!
Hasbro's website has posted new images of the Platinum Edition Blitzwing & Astrotrain! Blitzwing looks just about as good in tank mode as he did as a robot or jet... and so does Astrotrain. These recolors really have been fascinating to see, and I can't want to see if I can ask more about them at BotCon this year. Keep reading to see!
