It sounds like they're aiming to own all the major properties to create one incredible multi-brand crossover, like Jump Ultimate Stars. Optimus Prime versus Spiderman versus Luke Skywalker would rock my socks.

or more likely, a shitload of action figures

I remain skeptical.

The only 'source' is the this one MTVGeek article which appeared out of know where and gave a whole bunch of vague sourceless maybes.

Which in turn would give them WotC, if I remember rightly... I suppose they can't **** up D&D more than the current ingenues.

Hasbro denied this rumor.

But who knows. Maybe they never thought about this until somebody gave them this idea..............

So one big multinational company might own Transformers instead of another one, big deal. They can't degrade the line anymore than Takara did with Disney Label, Kiss Players, MP Megatron, the Arms Microns etc.

Gives the morons another chance to trot out the same basic jokes they did for the Marvel/SW deals, though.

HAY HAY HAY GAIZ! MEBE HEEL BE MICKIMUS PRIME!!!!! LOLLERCAUST!
