Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis decided to take a look at the upcoming Guardians of Harmony toys and comic series. In doing so, they look at why it took so long for these to be made, and what these toys represent for Hasbro and the toy industry as a whole. They also discuss what these could mean for the franchise in the future, like potential new directions they could take it. And Nemesis talks about Transformers a lot. It makes sense in context though, we swear!
