Hasbro Tries to Create Their Own Movie Universe
« on: December 15, 2015, 10:52 AM »
Under a new deal between the studio [Paramount] and Hasbro's Allspark Pictures, G.I. Joe will join up with characters from the Micronauts, Visionairies, M.A.S.K. and ROM brands

This sounds interesting.... but at the same time, it could be pretty lame based on some of the other Hasbro movies we've seen.

If the Rock runs around with a hologram on his chest and hops into his Camaro that turns into a jet, then I'll be surprised.

Fixed this...

Added Goldner: “Hasbro and Allspark Pictures put storytelling merchandising at the center of everything that we do.

I love just about all of these brands with the exception of Visionaries.  Micronauts and ROM are some of my favorite old time comics and I used to watch MASK daily as a kid.  One one hand, it will be great to see these get the big screen treatment.  But I threw up a little when I read that they storylines will be "interconnected."  I could see mixing and matching GI Joe with MASK or having ROM shrink down into the Microverse, but all of them tying together is a pretty big stretch.  Sounds a lot more like trying to build a standardized toy line than "great storytelling."

Why?  Just...  why?

The GI Joe movies were a hot mess.  They want to keep at this?

The last TMNT pulled in a quarter billion dollars worldwide.  If you even get close to a hit there's good money to be made.

I've been reading those Revolution comics from IDW where they're trying this same thing, and they're awful. I don't see how a bunch of movies aiming for the lowest common denominator could be any better, but I've been surprised before.

I guess Hasbro recognizes the true strength of their brands isn't in the toys anymore, but the intellectual property.

I'm kind of curious about this even though I'm sure it will be terrible.  Have a soft spot for Rom growing up with those comics and Jetfire is always awesome...

It's weird to see a Visionaries figure officially redone in modern form.

That IS weird...I remember wanting to get into that line a few years ago and eventually gave up because the stuff is just impossible to find on the secondary market.

I've always wanted a 3&3/4" ROM, but it's not the classic version nor does the Wraith look at all similar, so I can't say I care too much about this one.

Those Micronauts are just garbage...an insult to the original toys which could actually be played with...
