I thought Faust left due to a shift in career priorities?
I haven't seen that pic before, though the fact that Hasbro is "taking more control of the brand" makes sense with other recent moves, like yanking Youtube videos, court ordering certain fan projects to desist, etc. Who is the quote from?
To me, it's still in the province of speculation to say "this happened because so-and-so said so," although there may still be executive orders (I forget that there's a toy line to go with the show). I've been involved in creative projects that get presented in public where people run with a totally wrong idea based on an outside impression…
The point of that was that if you believe Hasbro and DHX have a mechanical relationship like that, then it would be equally logical to credit the company with good things that come out of the show as well. The artists still have some
discretion, though working within variously defined parameters.
I looked for it when I was making the previous post, as I wanted to review it myself. But it's hard to find.
Nah, I'm not a hater. Sometimes it's fun to talk in absolutes and make predictions, though, as long as we don't take them too seriously.
