I think I understand what you mean, but I don't think you understood what I meant. I think. I'll try to put it in a better way.

My argument is that Hasbro shifted the marketing of its MLP brand a bit with the start of G5. At least in my opinion. And that's understandable in my opinion. Because of the pandemic, some distribution chains have changed, or even completely broken down. So digital content will become more and more important in the future. That affects comics, for example. Presenting show elements on a streaming service like Netflix, too. It makes sense. For economic reasons, it's better for Hasbro to be more broadly based. And, of course, theyou want to link the individual products of their brand together somehow.

Whether you like that or not, that's not the question here. And I'm sorry if you have to deny my logic right away. Personally, I don't think this is a particularly good move on Hasbro's part. It may even be that it's not doing itself any favors in the end. But that will ultimately be up to the fans. That's all I wanted to say. ;-)
