Perhaps he will have a tighter control on Bay, in terms of the amount of sexual content for the Transformers movie. I have 9 year old daughter and it is sad that I can't allow her to see the last one without having to explaing a ton of stuff that she should not know about yet.

Possibly. If he's got previous experience with Walt Disney, and protecting their family friendly "image", he may go the same route for Hasbro.
