Hasbro´s Public Relations department sent out a message to several Transformers websites regarding the events concerning the demise of Orson´s World:


"First, we want you to know how much we appreciate the passion of the many TRANSFORMERS fan sites available on the Internet. While we understand that there may be competition amongst certain sites, it is the goal of Hasbro and the TRANSFORMERS brand to provide timely information to all sites on an even-handed basis.

"For this reason, Hasbro public relations is the information source for all TRANSFORMERS sites. Aaron Archer and other members of the Transformers marketing/design team will no longer post on websites, as we all understand the importance of equal access for all TRANSFORMERS sites. Aaron is fully onboard with this decision, allowing him to focus on designing great TRANSFORMERS toys, while Hasbro public relations will continue to focus toward servicing the sites on a regular basis.

"Hasbro understands that there has been some misunderstanding about this decision in the TRANSFORMERS fan community. Please be assured that Hasbro´s decision in this regard was made for the benefit of the TRANSFORMERS brand as well as the fan community as a whole. It was not the result of any complaint from any individual website.

"Keep posted as we make www.transformers.com a central place for fans to go for official and accurate information. It is our hope that any personal back and forth between the fan site cease, with time and energy focused on the reason your sites were born in the first place - your love of the TRANSFORMERS brand."


And that, my friends, is why we shouldn´t jump the gun with making accusations. If Hasbro actually follows through with their above statements, transformers.com might become a viable source of Transformers information for once. Doesn´t that benefit ALL of the Transformers websites in the end? I think this is awesome that something better may come out of this situation. Kudos to Hasbro!
