Hasbro over the years has developed a large number of toy franchises, including the popular G.I. Joe and Transformers, to more obscure ones like M.A.S.K. and Inhumanoids. Over time they have also bought out other toy companies like Coleco and Kenner, as well as the gaming company Wizards of the Coast, which previously bought TSR. This leaves a large number of franchises in a wide variety of genres under one roof. They breakdown as follows.
