Photos from HK AGC (Ani-com) 2015
Jul 26, 2015 - 3:14 AM - by Bladestorm
I thought I would share some of the photos my daughter and I took at ani-com yesterday here in Hong Kong.
Apologies if this is the wrong place - feel free to move or delete as necessary Griffin.

It was MUCH busier this year and some of the booths had impossible queues (for example we only queued at Hasbro/Toys'R'Us for 1/2 an hour, Lego for an hour, and didn't even bother trying to buy anything from Hot Toys as their queues were several hours long.)

I've... [Read More]

MYER % off sale thread
Jul 25, 2015 - 11:08 AM - by Megatran
Rather than starting a new thread every time Myer has one of those 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 day sales with % off toys, I thought I'll bundle them in this thread moving forward. The significant Myer toy sale can be posted as separate thread.

Kicking off. Myer has a 5 day toy sale. 40% off second toy item. T&Cs apply. Not sure when it ends.

French Diaclone comic translated
Jul 24, 2015 - 8:17 PM - by griffin
Before Hasbro entered the French market with Transformers in 1985, the company Joustra had a license with Takara to release the Transformers toys in 1984 & 1985 under the Diaclone label, but not related to the Japanese Diaclone series.

The Japanese Diaclone had the robots as lifeless constructs operated by drivers, but the French Diaclone were alien robots, and included Japanese toys/characters that were not taken up by Hasbro in their Transformers toyline (the vehicles that... [Read More]

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!
