Hasbro 2nd Quarter Financial report
Jul 21, 2015 - 4:25 PM - by griffin
TFW seems to be sitting in on these, so here are this quarter's financial details for Hasbro and Transformers... for those interested.

Apparently RID has been doing well, including licensing for that line.

As expected and projected, this year has been down for Transformers, due to it being a non-Movie year.

Total revenue for Hasbro was... [Read More]

Voice of Movie Que (George Coe) has passed away
Jul 21, 2015 - 2:51 PM - by griffin
Another of the voices for Transformers has gone - George Coe, who voiced the character Que in the 2011 Transformers Dark of the Moon Movie.

He would have been Wheeljack* in the movie if not for a name change (probably by Michael Bay, who also had Mirage called Dino), and he was one of the rare few Movie Transformers that had lines.... which makes them... [Read More]

James Roberts talks IDW MTMTE at TFCon
Jul 19, 2015 - 5:01 PM - by griffin
TFCon is on this weekend in Canada, and one of the presentations was by James Roberts, who is a writer for Transformers comics for IDW... particularly the More Than Meets The Eye comic.

He wasn't at the convention on behalf of IDW, but since he was a featured guest, he had a panel to talk about just what he is doing in the world of Transformers (not anything else from IDW).

New BW Dinbobot prototype
Jul 19, 2015 - 12:55 PM - by Ode to a Grasshopper
Courtesy of Weibo via Seibertron.com, we have a mysterious Beast Wars Dinobot prototype video.
Could it be the next BW Masterpiece? A new Classics-y mold? A 3rd-Party offering? Verno's hitherto-latent psychic powers bursting forth and forcing his subconcious mind onto a hapless, G1-centric reality?!

Speculate away, friends!

RID 3-step Thunderhoof
Jul 18, 2015 - 10:30 AM - by griffin
Apparently this is already in-stock at the American Kmart online store, so unless it is a store exclusive or is wrongly listed as being in-stock, this one really snuck out under our noses... well, for those who keep track of the gimmick toys. (and those who are looking out for more RID toys than the handful of 1-steps and Tiny Titans)

Thunderhoof as a 3-step... [Read More]

G1 Megatron Christmas ornament
Jul 18, 2015 - 8:24 AM - by Ultra Mackness
Because nothing says "merry Christmas" like "peace through tyranny"!


I couldn't get the Optimus from the official Hallmark site last year, but these guys ship to Australia, about $40AUD shipped.

The Optimus ornament is here (price has gone up since last year):

Kids Logic Devastator (non transforming)
Jul 16, 2015 - 10:16 PM - by BruiseLee
TFW member vproject has posted some pics of the Kids Logic Devastator. 8 inches tall, non transforming but will probably have the same led features as the other Kids Logic Mecha Nation TF range.

Also the smaller individual bots in 3 inch scale.

Liking the look of the large one but given that a 6 inch... [Read More]

From one of the Hasbro websites comes official images of three upcoming redeco gimmick toys, in all their shiny/glossy photoshopped glory. (so won't look anything like that as a real toy)
