Kinda funny coincidence, I was just the other day mulling over this as a possibility in light of Disney's recent purchase of Lucasfilm. I kinda wonder if even the mighty Disney is maybe over-extending its vast resources. I mean, several very high profile acquisitions with Marvel, Lucasfilm, the Muppets and Pixar before that... Clearly the Disney company is very well-off, but surely even they must feel a substantial punch from such massive purchases?
And what would this mean for Disney-branded Transformers media? Disney is notorious for sealing movies/media in their "vault" and producing only limited runs on DVD/Blu-Ray media to ensure maximum suckage from a customer perspective. Indeed, there are vast amounts of quality, pioneering animation and other expensive, first-run animated TV series they have simply refused to release. Can we expect similar treatment with Transformers-related media in the future? Worse, would such a deal signal the death of all current Transformers multimedia, like the IDW license, Prime TV Show, etc? Surely Hasbro, working hard of late to boost the Transformers brand, would not thoroughly rape their Prime (heh) product in the middle of a new "renaissance" period?
