80s kids just want to pretend their stuff is better. Much of what "stayed around" had to change so much it's only superficially the same. For every 1 old franchise revival that works, 5 other revivals fail. MASK only has a presence because IDW forces it. Thundercats revival failed so bad no toy company wants to bother. Jem, well, shit cartoon, ugly toys, bomb of a movie, SJW comic that no one likely reads but IDW pushes that shit, and some expensive remake dolls that only sell to feminists and hardcore 80s kids, made by another company because Hasbro knows trying to sell this shit would lose them money-0 why else did the movie have no toys? Watching that movie get made was insulting, watching it fail so bad is almost as satisfying and watching Trump's presidency be such a miserable joke. You hate it, yet at the same time you are glad it was around to crash and burn, rather than simply going away. The downside is, Hasbro is sitting on COPS, Inhumanoids and many other better franchises they either started or bought out and won't revive, while Brian Goldner is so sure a second Jem movie will be a success- I wish I was kidding but he's producing it.
Ghostbusters tried the feminist controversy reboot that everyone hated, then was blamed on either misogyny or piracy rather than it being a shitty movie. Bill Murray hated the franchise AND he had a long-running argument with Harold Ramis that killed GB3 until it was so too late they had to voice a video game instead.
So many other brands are not only forgotten but the companies folded and the rights either passed around or got lost. I know it was never a great thing, but Robo Force deserves better than shitty Glyos toys in bad colors and off-model bodies.
