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.
