Big Names Turn Cybertron "Dark"
Renowned Artist Phil Jimenez Brings His Talents To Transformers!

San Diego, CA (August 21, 2013) - Darkness falls on the AUTOBOTS this November in the comic book event Transformers: Dark Cybertron! This series pushes the TRANSFORMERS characters to their limits, but they'll have the help of some creative superstars on their journey. Joining writer and IDW senior editor John Barber and fan-favorite scribe James Roberts in a top-secret meeting earlier this year, the artistic force of Phil Jimenez helped plan Dark Cybertron from the start! "I've been a fan of the TRANSFORMERS brand since I was 13," said Jimenez, "and this was a fanboy dream come true. The beauty of this story is it plays to the strengths of the characters and to my strengths as a storyteller; epic, world-shattering scale as well as those beautiful character moments that make readers care about a bunch of giant ‘Robots in Disguise.'"

Big Names Turn Cybertron “Dark” - Renowned Artist Phil Jimenez Brings His Talents To Transformers!

The war between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS is over - but when the relentless SHOCKWAVE enacts a scheme millions of years in the making, yesterday's nightmares tear apart today's peace. "OPTIMUS PRIME, RODIMUS, BUMBLEBEE, even STARSCREAM - all these characters believed war was behind them, for better or worse," says Barber. "The big question - other than who will survive - is whose side will the DECEPTICONS be on?"

The twelve-part series starts in Transformers: Dark Cybertron #1, then alternates between the monthly TRANSFORMERS titles Robots In Disguise and More Than Meets The Eye, concluding in a finale issue in March. This is the first time that both Transformers series have crossed over. "It's thrilling to see the two casts crash back into each other's lives," says Roberts. "Fittingly, given the scale of SHOCKWAVE's ambition, this is a massive, galaxy-spanning story - and one that shakes everything up."

Co-written by Roberts and Barber, superstar artist Phil Jimenez provides layouts and covers for issue one, and variant covers for the whole series - as well as doing the art for the GENERATIONS action figure releases from Hasbro and planning the event from day one! Jimenez is joined by a who's-who of Transformers artists, including Robots in Disguise series artist Andrew Griffith, who provides finished art on the lead-off issue. According to Jimenez, "the script for #1 was probably one of the best I've worked from in years. Totally awesome stuff - I just hope people don't mind me butting in and adding my own two cents (or three) to this super cool universe. I think it all worked out pretty seamlessly, actually!"

This is an exciting time to be a fan of Transformers, with multiple series from IDW, fantastic toys and more from Hasbro. In that spirit, and in an unprecedented publishing move, Dark Cybertron comic books will be included in select GENERATIONS action figure releases from Hasbro, following their initial release from IDW. This is the first time that an entire mega-event has been distributed in such a way. "TRANSFORMERS fans are some of the most loyal and dedicated - but many of them have never seen our comics," says Barber. "Dark Cybertron will introduce these fans to the world of comics - and we can't wait to bring these new readers into the fold."

Courtesy of Hasbro, we have the official press release for the 30th Anniversary line of figures, started with Titan Class SDCC Exclusive Metroplex, and will end with the newly revealed fan-built Windblade. Take a look at all the releases up to number 11 below, all of which appear to be some type of convention exclusive.

THE TRANSFORMERS BRAND KICKS OFF 30TH ANNIVERSARY AT COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL
Hasbro Introduces the Thrilling 30 line of Action Figures and Merchandise to Celebrate the TRANSFORMERS Brand Legacy and Fandom Including the Reveal of the First Fan Built Bot Character


San Diego, CA – July 18, 2013 – The TRANSFORMERS brand from Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), an icon of pop-culture, kicks off its 30th Anniversary celebration at Comic-Con International today, the premier event in the world celebrating the popular arts. The prolific TRANSFORMERS brand which spans action figures, comic books, blockbuster movies, video games, award-winning animated series and more, introduces the new CONSTRUCT-BOTS line of customizable action figures, celebrates the TRANSFORMERS PRIME BEAST HUNTERS entertainment and unveils the “Thrilling 30” line of action figures and merchandise for the brand’s ultimate fans at the event.
To celebrate the anniversary with fans, Hasbro is introducing thirty numbered toys in the “Thrilling 30” line representing the remarkable heritage of the brand with characters and expressions from throughout its history. With millions of fans around the world, items within the “Thrilling 30” numbered line will be global in scope with some items available worldwide and others exclusively in Asia or North America. Each of the items represents significant periods of TRANSFORMERS brand legacy including its future with the #11 item: a CONSTRUCT-BOTS action figure! For the first time ever, kids and fans can build, customize, convert and “Unleash the Ultimate TRANSFORMERS” with the CONSTRUCT-BOTS action figure expression. Hasbro announced items numbered 1-11, which will be available in 2013, at Comic-Con International to a room packed with thousands of TRANSFORMERS fans. Non-numbered merchandise in the “Thrilling 30” line celebrating the anniversary will include expansions to the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS mainline and to several TRANSFORMERS brand licensees including Loyal Subjects, Acid Free Gallery and New Era.
In addition to the first items being revealed, Hasbro announced the result of the first “Fan Built Bot Poll.” Hosted earlier in the year, the poll asked fans around the world to vote on a series of TRANSFORMERS character elements such as faction, personality, vehicle mode and more. Hasbro combined all of the winning elements and unveiled the newest character to be incorporated into TRANSFORMERS lore and will be made into an action figure, part of the “Thrilling 30” line of numbered figures. The character is WINDBLADE, a female AUTOBOT jet who will appear in the “Thrilling 30” numbered line. The WINDBLADE character will make an appearance in future IDW comics as a lasting part of TRANSFORMERS lore with the opportunity to appear in additional brand expressions in the future. The WINDBLADE character action figure will be #30 in the “Thrilling 30” line and becomes available in late 2014.
“The TRANSFORMERS brand and its ‘MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE’ characters have been part of kids lives for generations and fans have given so much to the brand over the years that we’re tremendously excited to give back and offer the opportunity for them to actively participate in many new ways,” said Jay Duke, Vice President of Global TRANSFORMERS Brand Marketing, Hasbro. “With initiatives like the Fan Built Bot Poll and new customizable CONSTRUCT-BOTS action figure line, the power is increasingly in the hands of fans and kids to make the TRANSFORMERS brand their own.”

LOS ANGELES – The Hub Network today announced a slate of new programming for the 2013-‘14 television season that includes four new series, two Hub Original Family Movies, and nine returning series. Set to debut starting this summer, the lineup continues the network’s strategy of building a schedule with programs based on well-known brands featuring popular and respected names in the entertainment space. The announcement was made today by Margaret Loesch, President and CEO of The Hub, the fastest growing children’s cable network.
“The Hub is in a tremendous growth stage with triple-digit ratings increases, a major bump in distribution, and quality programming that appeals to both children and their parents,” said Ms. Loesch. “This slate of new and returning programs will capitalize on and sustain that momentum as we head into next season and continue to exponentially grow our presence in the kids space.”

Two new live-action series are set to debut on the network including the new Hub Original Series “Spooksville” which is based on the popular tween book series from Christopher Pike. Additionally, the popular U.K. adventure-fantasy series “Wizards vs Aliens” from Executive Producer Russell T Davies (“Doctor. Who,” “Torchwood”) will make its U.S. debut this summer on The Hub.

The new programming lineup will also include two animated series: the new Hub Original Series, “Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch,” starring Ashley Tisdale (“High School Musical”) as the iconic teen character re-imagined for a new generation; and an acquired series called “SheZow,” which features 12-year-old Guy, a thrill-seeking dude trying to cultivate a macho image who inherits the superhero persona of his deceased aunt — the kick-butt, FEMALE superhero SheZow!

In addition, The Hub will have two animated Hub Original Family Movies, including “Stan Lee’s Mighty 7,” starring the legendary superhero creator himself, as well as an all-star lineup of voice actors; and “Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising,” which wraps up the series’ final chapter revealing the fate of Cybertron.

A comprehensive list of The Hub’s 2013-’14 programming slate is as follows:

Summer 2013

“Wizards vs Aliens” (Hub Acquired Series – Live Action)

Following the tremendous success of season one in the UK, “Wizards vs Aliens” will make its American debut on The Hub. The series is produced by BBC Cymru Wales and FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment.

“SheZow” (Hub Acquired Series – Animated)

Twelve-year-old Guy Hamdon is a natural cut-up who fancies himself an extreme dude with his own catch phrase, “It’s a GUY thing.” Guy lives the dream of every rough-and-tumble boy when he discovers an awesome power ring belonging to his deceased aunt, which transforms him into a mighty superhero SheZow! There’s just one tiny catch — the ring that gives Guy his amazing super powers was only meant to be worn by a girl and the result is absolutely she-larious! Guy must use his super powers to battle mega-villains while sporting an outrageous female superhero costume, which actually ends up helping him tremendously on his own personal journey toward becoming one heck of a super man. The series is produced by Moody Street Kids & Kickstart Productions Inc.

IDW Press Release

San Diego, CA (February 28, 2013) –TRANSFORMERS fans hungering for more thrilling adventures with GRIMLOCK and his fierce DINOBOTS cohorts are in luck this May, when IDW Publishing presents TRANSFORMERS PRIME: BEAST HUNTERS! In this tie-in series to the upcoming season of “Transformers Prime” television show featuring the new BEAST HUNTERS saga, fans will get to experience a brand-new set of cyberfang-gnashing adventures based on the iconic brand from Hasbro!

For the thousands of years since the fall of CYBERTRON, the DINOBOTS haven’t been twiddling their claws! GRIMLOCK, SLUG. SLUDGE, SNARL and SWOOP have been martialing their forces and fighting the good fight against a slew of mysterious new villains.

The lauded creative team from TRANSFORMERS PRIME: RAGE OF THE DINOBOTS returns as writers Mairghread Scott and Mike Johnson team up with artist Agustin Padilla to chronicle the fierce AUTOBOT warriors’ resistance efforts. “There was a special kind of magic in that last TRANSFORMERS PRIME series,” said series Editor Carlos Guzman. “The fans really responded to the thrill-a-minute storytelling, and I can’t be more excited to work with Mairghread, Mike, and Agustin! And with our writers heavily involved in the Transformers Prime television series, we’re in a unique place to tell stories that matter!”

That story picks up miles beneath the charred remains of the TRANSFORMERS race’s smoldering home, CYBERTRON. As the survivors of CYBERTRON’s fall cling to the last bit of Energon left in its core, the DINOBOTS begin forging an unlikely network of hope underground, standing as beacons of resistance under constant attack, while they wait for the AUTOBOTS’ leader, OPTIMUS PRIME, to save them. While their efforts are nothing short of Herculean, can they hold off their shadowy assailants long enough for CYBERTRON to be saved? There’s only one way to find out!

TRANSFORMERS PRIME: BEAST HUNTERS is a veritable feast for Transformers fans of all stripes. Touting covers by Ken Christiansen and Michael Lark, this unique, action-packed adventure is one fans won’t want to miss!
