During their Hasbro Investor Day -- which is an event for investors, press, and consumers -- the company made a few announcements including one surprise: Transformers: Micronauts. Not much was revealed about this initiative, but it was listed on one of their slides as a "new brand" for Hasbro:



Transformers: Micronauts was not listed among the items shown on the "Transformers Shared Community" slide, so it's unknown if it will have video or comic related tie-ins…



… but it is good bet that there will be toys, as a Micronauts-looking figure (some speculate it is Biotron) appeared on the "Toys & Games" section of their offerings slide:



Transformers and Micronauts share a common ancestry, both a product of the Japanese company Takara, and now both properties being licensed in the West by Hasbro. If they did want to expand this new initiative into comics, it shouldn't be that difficult, as IDW has recently officially confirmed they will be publishing a Micronauts comic in 2016 (and they already publish multiple Transformers comics).

Also during the presentation, what looks like a logo for the next Transformers movie was shown on a slide that correlated toy sales increases with movie releases:




So really the continuation of the Bay-verse Transformers movies, is all your fault. Thanks a lot.
