The Statement From Hasbro

The Hasbro's PR department sent this out today to TF Web sites:

    "First, we want you to know how much we appreciate the passion of the many TRANSFORMERS fan sites available on the Internet. While we understand that there may be competition amongst certain sites, it is the goal of Hasbro and the TRANSFORMERS brand to provide timely information to all sites on an even-handed basis.

    For this reason, Hasbro public relations is the information source for all TRANSFORMERS sites. Aaron Archer and other members of the Transformers marketing/design team will no longer post on websites, as we all understand the importance of equal access for all TRANSFORMERS sites. Aaron is fully onboard with this decision, allowing him to focus on designing great TRANSFORMERS toys, while Hasbro public relations will continue to focus toward servicing the sites on a regular basis.

    Hasbro understands that there has been some misunderstanding about this decision in the TRANSFORMERS fan community. Please be assured that Hasbro's decision in this regard was made for the benefit of the TRANSFORMERS brand as well as the fan community as a whole. It was not the result of any complaint from any individual website.

    Keep posted as we make a central place for fans to go for official and accurate information. It is our hope that any personal back and forth between the fan site cease, with time and energy focused on the reason your sites were born in the first place - your love of the TRANSFORMERS brand."

We feel this states the true facts from the source. I stand by these facts that our dealings with Hasbro are unrelated to such events. I deeply regret that this situation has been used as a way to attack others and that the community has been impacted by this. If you are angry, I can only ask that you not attack or scrutinize anyone over this and exercise compassion and understanding where there is no logic to support this situation. I will not fire back at anyone over this. I nor TFormers have anything more to say about this and I hope we can all move on with our daily lives now. I want to thank all the people at Hasbro and fans everywhere for their on-going support and encouragement.
