Mike Mearls, lead designer on the new edition of Dungeons and Dragons, was said to be excited at the prospect of integrating Dungeons and Dragons with highly profitable Hasbro mainstays such as G.I. Joe, Transformers, and My Little Pony. When reached for a statement Mearls said, "I can't wait to bring Optimus Prime and Twilight Sparkle in against Tiamat when we launch! Since we got the news of this acquisition we've been rewriting the entire Tyranny of Dragons storyline to integrate as many of the Hasbro lines as we can!"
