In 1991, Hasbro purchased Tonka, which gained them not only the truck line, but Creator/{{Kenner}} Products (one of their main competitors) and the Parker Brothers board game line, including ''TabletopGame/{{Monopoly}}'' and ''TabletopGame/CandyLand'', as a complement to Creator/MiltonBradley, a 1984 purchase; they were previously owned by Pillsbury, who have since been bought out by UsefulNotes/GeneralMills. Tonka, through Kenner, also had the toy rights to ''Franchise/StarWars'', a property which would prove valuable for the company. 1994 saw the acquisition of British game company Waddingtons, inventor of ''TabletopGame/{{Clue}}'' (which had been licensed by Parker Brothers prior). As part of Hasbro, Kenner would go on to re-ignite the ''Transformers'' brand in 1996 with ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. In 1998, Hasbro bought Creator/{{Galoob}}, maker of ''Star Wars'' Micro Machines, so that they would have exclusive toy rights to the franchise; also purchased that year was Creator/AvalonHill, producer of strategy-oriented tabletop games. 1999 saw Hasbro buy Creator/WizardsOfTheCoast (which they integrated Avalon Hill into by 2004), giving them ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' along with the ''[[TabletopGame/{{Pokemon}} Pokemon Trading Card Game]]''.

As a media entity, the company reached its peak in 2007, when the Creator/MichaelBay-directed ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' film was released. The success of the film (and its two sequels) enabled Hasbro to increase its mass media exposure, including film versions of ''[[Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra G.I. Joe]]'' and ''Film/{{Battleship}}''. In 2010, Hasbro and Discovery Communications would launch TheHub, whose launch programming (much of it produced by Hasbro Studios, an in-house production company launched the year before) included ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', which stumbled upon massive interest from [[PeripheryDemographic older men]], and ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', a mere success within the core demographic of the franchise. In 2015, Hasbro and Universal Studios resurrected ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' as a live-action musical based off the animated series from the 80s, known as ''Film/JemAndTheHolograms''. They also plan a live-action comedy from Creator/AdamSandler based off the preschool-based board game ''TabletopGame/CandyLand'' in the near future, but the project has jumped from Creator/UniversalStudios to Creator/ColumbiaPictures to Creator/WarnerBros. 2016 saw comic book partner Creator/IDWPublishing jumpstart the Franchise/HasbroComicUniverse with the ''[[ComicBook/Revolution2016 Revolution]]'' crossover, spinning out from their ''Transformers'' and ''G.I. Joe'' series to encompass nearly all the other IDW Hasbro titles (the newly-launched ''Franchise/{{Micronauts}}'', ''[[ComicBook/RomSpaceknight ROM]]'' and ''ComicBook/ActionMan'', plus the upcoming ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}'' title; ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' is also a part of the universe, but isn't involved in ''Revolution'').
