Hasbro has applied for a new Trademark at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, says TF@TM and this new trademark is not just specific for Transformers.
Titled as Allspark Distribution, the description lists as “Entertainment services, namely, production and distribution of movies, television series, online series, webisodes and digital content; entertainment media production services for motion pictures, television and internet“. In short, it’s a trademark for an entertainment content production and distribution company such as Paramount Pictures.
This new name certainly popped up at a very curious time; considering the fact that Hasbro’s new 5-year agreement with Paramount states a greater control over the movies made based on Hasbro properties.
At this point, Hasbro is a fully fledged entertainment powerhouse with the following list of subsidiaries. Start of a distribution company will only strengthen all below:
- Hasbro Studios: TV development, production, and distribution.
- Allspark Pictures: Movie production.
- Allspark Animations: Animation production.
- Boulder Media Studio: Animation development.
- Backflip Studios: Mobile game development.
The only thing missing from the picture is a music/record label.
