Yes hasbro did think it was a good idea and it wasn't.

However if you watch Dark Awakening there was clearly no intent to ever revive Optimus after that episode.

As to killing of characters, the toys were released and their popularity began to wane so new toys means new characters.

But instead of upgrading Optimus, the opted to kill and replace him.

As to the reports of traumatized kids, that is indeed why they brought him back. It wasn't just a matter of realizing it was a bad idea but it was all the fallout from the idea

During a lot of time, I wrongly believed that Batman Returns, one of my favorite movies, hadn't been a commercial success because some of the French magazines wrongly said that the movie had been censored in the USA.

Actually, it was false (journalists in specialized magazines are not what you might call reliable ... Recently, one of them confused Elijah Price, the character of the Glass movie, with Elijah Wood, the actor)

Warner Bros. was disappointed with the box office run, having made $150 million less than the first film ... but Batman Returns was a commercial success, the third highest-grossing film in America of 1992, and it received positive reviews.

No, the main problem was that McDonald's shut down their Happy Meal promotion for the film because some parents criticized Batman Returns with violence and sexual references that were inappropriate for children despite being rated PG-13.
