Transformers News: Hasbro Invites Transformers Fans To Create Massive Transformers Character To Enlist In Combiner Wars

HASBRO INVITES TRANSFORMERS FANS TO CREATE MASSIVE TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER TO ENLIST IN THE COMBINER WARS

Fans Can Soon Create an All New Transformers Character in “Fan Built Combiner Poll”

Pawtucket, R.I. (January 15, 2015) —TRANSFOMERS fans around the world are invited to help create a new character for the popular TRANSFORMERS brand — but not just any character. Following on the heels of the 30th anniversary “Fan Built Bot” poll, which led to the fan-assisted creation of the popular new AUTOBOT character, WINDBLADE, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) is launching the new “Fan Built Combiner” poll. This crowdsourcing project seeks fan input to create a new team of TRANSFORMERS robots that combine into one giant new character in celebration of the theme of the 2015 TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS line, COMBINER WARS!

Starting soon, with exact dates to be announced, the official TRANSFORMERS brand app (formerly the official TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION app) will be updated and fans will be able to log-in and answer a round of questions to help shape the identity of the new Combiner characters. The Fan Built Combiner poll will allow fans to determine everything from the types of vehicles involved, to whether the characters will be AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS, and eventually the name of the new character.

Voting for each round will be open for one week, after which the results will be announced and a new round of voting will begin the following week, with three rounds of questions in all. A full reveal of the new Fan Built Combiner is expected later this year, with the character available as a toy in 2016.

“The first ‘Fan Built Bot’ effort was massive, resulting in the creation of WINDBLADE who has her own widely popular comic series from IDW Publishing and toy product,” said Tom Warner, senior vice president of the TRANSFORMERS franchise at Hasbro. “With the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS line celebrating the venerable COMBINER characters from throughout TRANSFORMERS history this year, this is the perfect time to let fans help create something even bigger than a new TRANSFORMERS character — a Combiner team that will become part of TRANSFORMERS lore.”

The new “Fan Built Combiner” character will be part of the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS toy line. Like all the toys in the line, which debut in stores this month, the new Combiner figure will be able to mix-and-match limbs with other figures in the line so kids and fans can create their own custom TRANSFORMERS COMBINERS figures.

To participate in the vote, fans will need to download the free official TRANSFORMERS brand app on iOS (http://hasb.ro/TF4APAIT514) and Android (http://hasb.ro/TF4APAS514). Starting with the Fan Built Combiner update, launching soon, the refreshed app will become the premiere destination for TRANSFORMERS fans and will feature first-look and behind-the-scenes images and information on new TRANSFORMERS: GENERATIONS toys. Additional information will be available at TRANSFORMERS.COM as well as the official TRANSFORMERS Facebook page at Facebook.com/Transformers.

Curious as to what IDW Publishing are up to recently, in terms of Transformers comics and the celebration of the 30th anniversary of everyone's favourite transforming robots? Look no further than the official press release we received today, mirrored below for your viewing - and keep an optic on Seibertron.com this week to see what the buzz is all about.


IDW Continues To Celebrate Transformers 30th Anniversary
The Celebratory Year Concludes With New Series!


San Diego, CA (November 25, 2014) – 2014 marks the 30th Anniversary of Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS, which has been celebrated thus far with a blockbuster film and critically acclaimed comic series’ from IDW. But the party isn’t quite over as IDW still has some TRANSFORMERS debuts this year!

The long-running TRANSFORMERS comic, which originally appeared in 1984, came to an epic conclusion as, TRANSFORMERS: Regeneration One by IDW reached its 100th issue! Original series’ writer, Simon Furman and artist Andrew Wildman led the illustrious series to its closing chapter earlier this year.

But as one chapter closed, a new one began during the “Dawn of The Autobots.” After the cataclysmic changes of “Dark Cybertron” the Autobots gained unexpected new allies, of whom the breakout star, WINDBLADE, the first ever fan voted character, ventured out on her own critically-acclaimed mini-series written by Mairghread Scott and stunningly illustrated by Sarah Stone.

The smash-hit new series TRANSFORMERS vs. G.I. JOE by Tom Scioli and John Barber made waves upon its Free Comic Book Day debut. With its stylized over-the-top approach, issue #1 sold out before the first issue even hit the shelves! The epic space-romp has not only been praised by the comic community, but has also struck a cord with fans.

“It’s been an amazing year for TRANSFORMERS comics,” said Barber, IDW Publishing’s Senior Editor. “The fans seem to be digging what we’re making, and it seems like there’s more fans every day. It’s been amazing seeing how fast people have come to love WINDBLADE—and especially gratifying to see kids inspired by her. Add to that the phenomenal response to TRANSFORMERS vs. G.I. JOE and the outstanding level of quality on the other ongoing series, and it’s been a banner year. Wait’ll everybody sees what we’ve got coming in 2015!”

Throughout the year variant homage covers have graced the ongoing series’ More Than Meets The Eye by writer James Roberts and artist Alex Milne and Robots in Disguise by writer John Barber and artist Andrew Griffith. Celebrating the rich history of TRANSFORMERS, these covers highlighted monumental moments throughout the history of Transformers.

This year has also seen a number of premier TRANSFORMERS collections released from IDW; from the 30th Anniversary Collection, with highlights from the many iterations of TRANSFORMERS in comics, to TRANSFORMERS Legacy: The Art of TRANSFORMERS Packaging.

The Cybertronian War has been the explosive topic of the TRANSFORMERS series Autocracy and Monstrosity and the final chapter in this expansive storyline, Primacy debuted this fall! Written by Chris Metzen and Flint Dille with art by Livio Ramondeli this epic conclusion can’t be missed!

DRIFT, who made his debut in the pages of IDW comics was featured in the blockbuster hit film TRANSFORMERS: Age of Extinction, and this month he returns to his comic roots in the new mini-series from creators Shane McCarthy and Guido Guidi! Drift—Empire of Stone sees the fan-favorite character take on a mission to clean up the darkest depths of the galaxy.

As IDW comes up on its tenth year with TRANSFORMERS, it embarks on the wildest and most unexpected of crossovers with ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS. Written by John Barber the mini-series will be drawn by Marcelo Ferreira, and debuts tomorrow!

It’s been a huge year for TRANSFORMERS in the anniversary year, and IDW is honored to be involved in the celebrations!

Cartoon Network Becomes the Home of Hasbro Studios' Newest Series, Transformers: Robots in Disguise

Latest Installment of Hasbro Studios' Top-Rated Series to Debut On Its New U.S. Network Home in First Quarter of 2015


LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hasbro Studios, the Los Angeles-based entertainment division of Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), announced today that Cartoon Network, the regularly top-rated primetime network for boys' ages 6-11 and 9-14, will become the U.S home of the brand new series, Transformers: Robots in Disguise.

The latest installment in the Transformers franchise - a global phenomenon across TV, film, consumer products and digital media - will debut in the first quarter of 2015 and is written and directed by top Hollywood talent and influenced creatively with feedback from its avid fan base, which is reflected in the tone and style of the new series.

"Robots in Disguise begins a brand new chapter in storytelling, filled with great humor, lots of fun adventure and animated in a cooler, lighter, brighter style that we know kids are going to really love," said Stephen Davis, president of Hasbro Studios and global entertainment & licensing for Hasbro, Inc. "We have spent a lot of time listening to what kids like about Transformers and they haven't been shy about giving us their opinions. And we have listened! Robots in Disguise is reflective of all that we have learned in our conversations with kids. It has the most relatable Autobot and Decepticon characters we have ever ‘Rolled Out' in a Transformers animated series."

The mission begins as Bumblebee must step up to be leader in the years after we left the Autobots in Transformers Prime. Summoned by Optimus Prime to save Earth from a new faction of Decepticons, Bumblebee puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rouge team of young Autobots action heroes. Bumblebee must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally band that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel, elite guard cadet, bombastic dinobot and exciteable mini-con must balance team-building with chasing and capturing their new enemies in every episode packed full of action, fun and adventure.

Finn Arnesen, senior VP of global distribution and development for Hasbro Studios, commented, "As the regularly top-rated U.S. TV network in prime among Transformers' core audience of boys ages 6-11 and 9-14, our beloved Autobots and Decepticons will feel very much at home on Cartoon Network. And to seal our new partnership with Cartoon Network on the 30th anniversary of the Transformers franchise makes this a truly iconic event."

The highly innovative Transformers franchise is one of the biggest brands in the world, spanning television, film and digital entertainment (including the 2014 global blockbuster, TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, the fourth in the hit film series); gaming; apps; publishing; transmedia events; toys, games and licensing.
