Judging by those boards, it's going well for all of them except Hello Kitty. Despite its longevity, there might just not be too much to say about it.

Well, if there's one toyline it'd make sense to replace with MLP at the last minute...

yeah, that is the odd one out. I would have suggested Mr potatoe head or Hotwheels or Ninja Turtles but I think they wanted to diversify their toys.

First, "Transformrers" in the post title. ;)

Second, this sounds like it could actually be fun. They do seem to be doing some fan oriented stuff rather than just drone on about the franchise. I see notes about doing the transformation sound with your mouth, transforming without instructions, and even mention of 3rd party figures. Yeah, I'll be watching.

When eating planets alone isn't enough to satisfy the Chaos Bringer's hunger, Unicron comes to Earth to fill up on McDonald's. McDonald's golden arches will light our darkest hour (when the Chaos Bringer would not share) by clogging his arteries, raising his blood pressure, and giving him diabetes.

Netflix The Toys That Made Us Premieres on December 22nd, Feat. Bob Budiansky, Peter Cullen,

Postby Va'al » Wed Dec 06, 2017 4:38 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We first reported on the new Netflix 80s nostalgia grab show The Toys That Made us back in January. The series will see 8 focused episodes, each on a different franchise from the last century (yep; millennium too) including Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Lego, Star Trek, GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, Barbie and of course, Transformers.

In June, we then reported that site owner Ryan Yzquierdo will be featuring in the Transformers episode, which will air at some point after the start of the series on December 22nd. Is this post bringing us any new information? Not really, no. Consider it a reminder of some expansion to the Seibertron.com presence in popular media, as Ryan will be featuring alongside comics creator Bob Budiansky, voice legend Peter Cullen, other collectors in the Transformers fandom, and many more! Will you be tuning in?

The page is unclear about that. They say yes to people who asked about Germany, Canada, UK and US. Not seen anyone ask about Australia, Japan, or South American countries. So not sure!


OH WAIT: World wide wherever there is Netflx we will be!! THX!!
