IDW announced a big crossover coming in comic book pages later this year involving the Hasbro properties. Pretty convenient that this REVOLUTION is happening considering what Paramount and Hasbro Allspark Studios is planning. I guess this will validate the movie crossovers, kind of like when Nick Fury was turned black in the comics so that Marvel Studios could cast the Bad Motherfucker himself Samuel L. Jackson in the movies.
But let me ask you all a question, how many of these “Hasbro Properties” did Hasbro really create, or just “acquired” though business deals and mergers.
Unlike Marvel or DC, Hasbro is just making a “UNIVERSE” by garbage picking though what they own. None of these universes with the exception of G.I.Joe and Transformers ever had a connection till just now. Some like M.A.S.K.were created to compete with Hasbro in the toy market of the 80s.
Think about how a M.A.S.K. fan has to feel about this, now the whole origin of that series is connected to those robots in disguise, which most likely since they liked M.A.S.K, they might not have been into.
That is right the origin of the M.A.S.K. team, and their transformable vehicles is because of something called Ore 13, which is an unstable version of Energon. I bet all the fans of the AWESOME animated series M.A.S.K. are feeling ecstatic about this revelation. I have no problem with it since I love M.A.S.K and Transformers………..no wait you know what even being a fan of both I do have a problem with it.
You can’t shoehorn all these series together just because you want to be as cool as Marvel and DC……it dose not seem natural and it is a bit insulting to the fans of ROM, M.A.S.K., and the Micronauts that everything revolves around THE TRANSFORMERS. I understand that without the “big man on campus” no one would even be paying attention to these series…..and that is sad. Cause there was a time that these series had as much popularity as the Transformers.
So to answer the question above, how many did Hasbro actually create.
Action Man……kind of…..he was created by Palitoy as a licensed copy of Hasbro’s 1960s G.I.Joe.
ROM the Space Knight……..NO…..he was created by both Marvel (yes Marvel) and the toy company Parker Brothers.
M.A.S.K……….NO. The series was created by Kenner back in 1985 as a “Competitor” to G.I.Joe and The Transformers. The awesome show was animated by DiC.
The Micronauts……..NO. They were based on a toy made by Takara, and were manufactured and marketed by Mego. The comic and characters were mostly created again by Marvel.
Actually both ROM and The Micronauts have more connection to the Marvel Universe then they do the “Hasbro Universe”.
So after all that is said I have one more question………
Where the fuck are The Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light.
I was promised Visionaries.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.
Recently I was called a sexist because I had an opinion about a comic book cover. Well it was actually not an opinion on the cover itself, but the reaction to it. Thing is my opinion is because I am not sexist, if fact I was stupidly naive, and thought women are at a point where they are not crybabies anymore.
This is not the first time I have been called this though, or having a woman overreacting to something I said. Back in 1993 I sent a letter to a person that was running something called “Transmasters” it was a Transformers fan club community, besides the fact that the women took the money I sent, (to join the club) she also sent back a rude letter, calling me a sexist, and close minded, all because I started my letter to her “Dear Mr. Blank “. She went on to tell me that “not only guys like Transformers” and blah blah blah…..stuff I already knew. Actually I wrote a letter to a comic book once stating that it seems like more and more girls, are getting into comics (that got published).
So I sent her a letter saying how I didn’t know she was a female, her first name was one I never seen before that date (I was naive and stupid back then ) and I thought it sounded and looked like a guys name, heck my sister and Mom were on the same page as me. So after my second apology letter she sent back an even ruder letter, oh and still she kept the money I sent and I was not added to the club….DUH!!! I would say the cunts name, but a lot of my Transformers friends have her as a friend, I have even seen her on a page (there is a hint above) I visit often.
Talking about pages on Facebook, there is a page that is very sexist, to a point where it is starting to get me ill. Yes a lot of my “friends” are a part of it, and as a person that hates censorship I can’t criticize the page itself . But the sad fact is these men, on this page have girlfriends/wives and play the part of the Good Boy and Great Dad on their profile pages, all awhile posting some really demeaning pics of women. Yet I am sexist because I have the opinion that women are equal to men, if they want to play football with the boys, than prepare to get dirty and don’t cry about it……and that makes me a sexist.
Yes I call women Stupid Bitches and Fucking Cunts, not because I don’t respect them, it is the opposite in fact, it is because I do. But if you are going to point figures at me and cry about it, and get all Gloria Steinem on me. Well maybe it is time for you to walk behind me on the street and for me to open the door for you, and pull the chair out for you, oh but that means you can’t vote (too big of a responsibility), can’t let you drive (the dames can’t handle a piece of machinery like an automobile), just stay home and cook for your SEXIST husband…..which by the way will not be me cause I view everyone as EQUAL.
A few notes to this post, I was raised by two very strong-minded women (my Mom and Carrie my sis), I guess they set the bar way to high.
Marriage actually was created so a MAN could OWN a Women……so set that special date ladies.
And as for the cover that I defended it was that Joker/Batgirl cover, and even though I hate censorship, the cover is a bit too much for my taste, but what did the girls expect from a very sexist community of comic book artist and writers.
I was in a focus group recently, and to be honest I don’t even know if I can speak about it, or what happened during, but it is me and I really don’t care. 😛
So it was mostly boring stuff like taxes, politics, schools….blah blah blah…..
But the subject of Cigarettes came up, and here is what pisses me off, or grid my gears. lol
If you know me than you know I hate the disgusting things, my Mom smoked for most of her life and died of lung cancer. I hate the smell and heck even the look of them. So the question came up “Should we raise the tax of Cigarettes again, to pay for schools and all that shit” ….
Now most of the people said yes, but 3 of us said NO!!!!!. Yes I said no to raising the tax on Cigarettes, even though I hate them. My reason is this….it is fucking unfair (oh I told them my reason too), why should smokers pay more for an ADDICTION!!!
People are going to say “well we have to pay the medical bills and all that mumble jumble” ……but why just cigarettes I say. Alcohol and some Foods are as unhealthy as smoking, in some cases they are worse. My Mom smoked and smoked a lot, but she died at age 59, but a overweight teen can die before they are even 20 years old……just saying. So it is unfair to just pick on one, cause it is “Convenient”.
Here is what also sucked, some moron in the group said ….and I quote “I bet you all are smokers….am I right” , no you are not right, mister comedian, just someone that believes in justice.
TRANSFORMERS-Just saw the premiere of the new show Transformers Robots in Disguise , on Cartoon Network, and I have to say it is AWESOME!!
Way better than even I expected, the characters are really awesome and likable, especially Fixit, in a way I kind of relate to him.
The animation is still kind of not my style, a bit to …..shiny I guess, but the story really made me not focus on it too much. The voices were absolutely awesome, even Darren Criss as Sideswipe, no wonder he was my favorite from Glee. I also really liked Constance Zimmer as Strongarm, again they were all very awesome.
The show went by so quick it did not even seem like an hour.
This is also a very, I guess special anniversary for me, it was 30 years ago sometime in the month of March that I discover this awesome show on TV while Carrie and I were trying to find something to watch on our old B&W Television. That show was The Transformers and it was the last 5 minutes of “More Then Meets The Eye” part 1. The next day we watched Part 2 and the rest is history. I got Bumblebee in August of that year, my first Action Figure in my collection, I would’ve gotten him sooner, but that month we could finally afford something as expensive as him, when you are poor, food and place to live comes before a $3.99 toy. I prized that little guy, like a rich woman would a diamond, which is why I still have him, and all his brothers and sisters today.
Listen I don’t want to do any Hasbro Bashing, but I feel like I have to in this case. The Platinum Series – Year of the Goat Optimus Prime is WAYYYYYYYYYYY over priced, I mean WHOA!!!!
Yes these figures have always been a bit more expensive than they should be, but this is absurdly expensive.
When you consider that when the mold first came out in 1995 it was only $25 bucks, and when Scourge (RID) came out in 2002, which was also a Toys R Us Exclusive, he was only about $30 bucks. So to be honest I was expecting this reissue to be maybe $50 perhaps $60 tops, but this……really
What are they using real silver for the chrome part ???
HASBRO I am disappointed in you for this one, we all know you are just trying to fleece the collector market. Heck I think I can find both the original and Scourge cheaper on-line if I wanted to.
Of course I don’t have to, I do have the 1995 version and he is in great shape too. 😛
