Continuing the build-up of its movie side-company, after the Allspark Animation trademark registration, Hasbro has appointed a new head of Allspark Studios according to Variety: Greg Mooradian. The news brings the consequence of a development of Hasbro's current deal with Paramount going forward too, but for now, read more about the appointment here and below!

Hasbro has hired seasoned veteran Greg Mooradian to oversee the company’s film division, Allspark Pictures, as it attempts to create a full-fledged movie studio. As president of Allspark, he will oversee film and television production starting in January. Sources say the company has been making an effort to raise money to start its own studio for some time, and is trying to attract funding in the nine-figure range in order to properly develop its own slate of films. The hope is to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.

[...]

Mooradian is currently a production executive at Fox 2000. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Mooradian, who previously worked at Paramount, helping guide “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” to the big screen, as well as Hasbro hits like “G.I. Joe” and “Transformers.” He left Paramount in 2013.

Hasbro has recently applied for 2 new trademarks, each associated with a different category that has been in the Transformers news recently.

The first trademark is for "Cybertron", which is related to the new Transformers: Cyberverse series and trademarks that have been discussed over the past few months. For those curious, the Cyberverse trademark is still active, and the application for the Cybertron trademark is specifically mentioned as being related to the Cyberverse trademark.

The second trademark is something new, and is applied for under the name "Movie Edition." What this means we do not know, but as the trademark is filed for the toys category, we can guess that this is meant to be a potential new Transformers line dealing with Movie-verse characters. We will need to keep an eye on this development, but feel free to speculate below what this new trademark could mean! The logo for the trademark was also included in the description.

Trademark Name: CYBERTRON
Trademark ID: 87616073

How Toysrus' Healthy Canadian Subsidiary is being Dragged Down by its Parent Company

While it came to no one's shock that Toysrus was close to bankruptcy in the US, due to all the debt woes since the early 00's, Canadians were left puzzled by Toysrus Canada being the only subsidiary to also file for bankruptcy protection. The confusion came from the fact that Toysrus Canada was known to be autonomous from its parent company, along with having less distribution woes, only 1 major competitor, along with lots of stock and product turnaround making it a haven for any toy enthusiast (all of these later attributes are mainly due to the market only being one tenth the size of the US market, and smaller markets are easier to manage).

Transformers News: How Toysrus' Healthy Canadian Subsidiary is being Dragged Down by its Parent Company

Well, an article from the Financial Post confirms how healthy Toysrus Canada is.

The profitable Toys Canada “operates as a relatively autonomous business unit and has achieved strong financial and operational performance in recent years,” the company said in court filings. It is cash-flow positive, has had compounded annual revenue growth of 5 per cent in the past three years and has almost doubled net earnings in that time, the filings said, and it wants to keep all of its stores open and operating.


However, and here is the kicker, the article also confirms how it is linked to its US parent:

Indeed, the Canadian unit has been sending surplus cash from its operations to support its U.S. parent’s cash flow needs, making $101 million in unsecured inter-company loans to the troubled U.S. division since 2016.


So yes, while Toysrus Canada has been doing so well that it has surplus, this $101M loan is unsecured and due to Toysrus declaring bankruptcy, there is no indication that the Canadian operations will ever see that money again. Just to give any reader an idea of how massive this amount is for Toysrus Canada, this $101M unsecured loan is a quarter the size of the $400M debt coming to term soon for TRU USA which caused the later to file for Chapter 11. And this massive $101M amount was given from a subsidiary that only has 10% of the market the US has. This explains how a company which would have been autonomous is instead very much linked financially and how Toysrus going down is dragging the subsidiary down with it.

Toysrus has now posted some documents on their website giving specific details of what we can expect from them filing for bankruptcy protection earlier this week. They do not shy away from giving a clear number of their current debt of 5 Billion dollars and even provide an FAQ which covers everything a customer may need to know, from toy availalibility to the Toysrus credit card. In short, everything remains the same as before through the holiday season. We knew that Hasbro would be sending them all their holiday orders and now we know that Toysrus will be putting all these on the shelves throughout the holidays with no stores closing for now. We have quoted the three following articles below:

Restructuring Information

Customer FAQ

A Message to Our Customers

At Toys“R”Us we are undertaking a financial restructuring to ensure the iconic Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us brands live on for many generations. For all of our customers, distributors, vendors and talented team members –Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us stores around the world are open and web stores are operating normally. The things customers like the most will not be affected. We continue to offer amazing new seasonal products and great customer service, just as we always have. In addition, Toys“R”Us is committed to working with our vendors to help ensure that inventory levels are maintained and products continue to be delivered in a timely fashion.
To achieve our financial objectives, Toys“R”Us and some of our U.S. subsidiaries and our Canadian subsidiary proactively and voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Our Canadian subsidiary also began parallel proceedings under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act in Canada.

• Yes. Our operations are continuing as usual. The Company’s stores around the world are open and our web stores and other online platforms will remain up and running, providing customers great service and a curated assortment of merchandise in the toy and baby categories.

You may remember our previous story about Toys R Us shipments by other companies being cut, but the latest in the news about Toys R Us is that they have successfully ]filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection from CNBC News. Does this mean that stores will be closing? In short, no.

The company said it will continue to operate as usual its approximately 1,600 Toy R Us and Babies R Us stores around the world. The company's operations outside of the U.S. and Canada are not part of the protections proceedings, it said.


We will continue to post more developments about this as they become available.

There has been a development in the Toysrus debt restructuring (and possible bankruptcy) story and it's not a positive one. A Bloomberg article has stated that while Toysrus is seeking a new loan, several retailers are cutting back shipments since if Toysrus does go the bankruptcy route, the vendors may not get paid for their supplies.

Suppliers pulled back in part because the cost to insure their shipments to cash-strapped Toys “R” Us has become too expensive, said the people. Vendors often rank among creditors with the lowest priority for getting repaid if a company seeks court protection, and their decision on whether to continue shipping goods can play a large role in determining a retailer’s fate.


However, and this is where this becomes very topical for any fan reading, Hasbro is not one of these suppliers. They will continue their operations just as before and provide Toysrus with the full shipments.

Hasbro Inc. is among toymakers that hasn’t curtailed shipments, spokeswoman Julie Duffy wrote in an email. “We continue to partner and ship, conducting business as usual, while managing our risk across all retailers to the appropriate levels,” Duffy wrote.

You may remember how Transformers in 2016 was not admitted to the National Toy Hall of Fame, losing to the swing, D&D and Little People (see story here) - but the brand is actually back in the running for 2017, along with other 11 finalists such as Clue, the Magic 8 Ball, Matchbox Cars, My Little Pony, the paper airplane, Sand, and more.

Transformers News: Re: Transformers Nominated for 2016 National Toys Hall of Fame


Hasbro, Inc. introduced Transformers, a toy line of action figures that change their shapes, in the mid-1980s. They marketed Transformers with an elaborate back story supported by a Marvel comic book series, a cartoon television series, animated movies, electronic games, consumer goods, and even its own cereal. A continuing series of blockbuster films (with the latest installment released in June 2017) has kept Transformers in the public eye.
