Possible merger between Hasbro and Dreamworks?
Nov 13, 2014 - 3:32 PM - by griffin
Rumours are circulating that Dreamworks and Hasbro Studios might be in talks to do a merger, to create a decent animation entity for Hasbro to then sell toys from (without having to secure rights or pay royalties).

If this ends up being true, and the deal is signed, it could well mean a new focus or direction for Hasbro... away from traditional... [Read More]

Combiner Wars designer video from Hasbro
Nov 11, 2014 - 11:53 AM - by griffin
Hasbro have released on their youtube channel, another designer video from Joshua Lamb and John Warden, about the upcoming Combiners of Superion and Menasor.... both of which look to be post-production versions now. (so could be in production now or soon)

Video is only 90 seconds, so you don't see much other than the concept of a Voyager and four Deluxes, and that they are interchangeable for... [Read More]

Vinyl record of the '86 movie soundtrack to be reissued.
Nov 09, 2014 - 7:34 PM - by DELTAprime
For those of you that love the sound of vinyl you can soon get your hands on a reissue of the '86 Transformers Movie soundtrack in 180g vinyl. Personally I find physical media cumbersome, but this might be a good one to pick up to hang on the wall. The first 1000 records will be numbered and blue instead of black.

The next set of Capsule Transformers toys in Japan will be Kreons, to be released in January/February.

There will be 12 of them, of Gen1 Kreons that were released in build sets or Custom Kreon sets.
None appear to be different to the Hasbro versions, but might be easier for people to track down the Kreons without buying the build sets.

Rescue Bots Vol 6 DVD (US)
Nov 05, 2014 - 1:10 PM - by griffin
In reply to my query to them about the odd order of their American Rescue Bots DVDs, they replied with a link to Volume 6... and the mess just keeps getting bigger. Bigger gaps of episodes missing than with Volume 4 & 5, and a repeat of two episodes from previous volumes.

In Singapore from November 1st to March, at the Science Center (western side of Singapore), is a Transformers exhibit that looks to be set up and run by Hasbro... but isn't a huge exhibit, so is more for those familiar with Transformers from the Movies and kids, than hardcore collectors.
A video can be seen here, and photos and a written... [Read More]

The 8-toy Cloud series in Japan came with story chapters, and by the looks of it, a fair bit of artwork as well. The artist Nagi Miyako has released a collection of his works for the Cloud series.
