Mr. Herb Weiss is the Economic and Cultural Affairs officer for the city of Pawtucket Rhode Island, the home of Hasbro's headquarters, and he stopped by to let us know of a rather unique experience. Hasbro will be part of the annual Pawtucket Arts Festival. Their exhibition is titled: "From Sketches to Product Development of a Transformer Figure"

The exhibit will show several steps from design drawings all the way up to the finished product, to give people a little insight into how some of our favorite characters are immortalized in plastic. The figure in question is Stomp And Chomp Grimlock!

The annual Pawtucket Arts Festival will be displaying Hasbro's exhibit on Sunday, September 7th, from 2 to 5 PM, with a speaking program scheduled at 3 PM. The Art Festival is open to the public and everyone is invited to enjoy this once in a lifetime chance to see behind the curtain and see how the wizards at Hasbro bring us our own little Oz.

Hasbro also has a three month exhibit running from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. The Grimlock exhibit will be held at City Hall, 137 Roosevelt Ave, in downtown Pawtucket. You can read additional information about this event by clicking here: http://www.mybackyardnews.com/blog/2014/08/30/hasbro-pawtucket-transformers/

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.”
The “Thrilling 30” numbered items unveiled at Comic-Con and available in 2013 include:

Based on the third season of the Emmy Award-winning animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, TRANSFORMERS PRIME BEAST HUNTERS, the AUTOBOTS face off against both the DECEPTICONS and an unprecedented new foe: the dragon-like PREDACONS, led by the spectacular PREDAKING character! Hasbro’s 2013 TRANSFORMERS PRIME product line will be based on the new BEAST HUNTERS story and will feature many of the new PREDACON characters as well as new designs for favourite characters like OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE and more.

Accompanying the replica of the AUTOBOTS leader will be an interactive TRANSFORMERS Station that will showcase the new range of BEAST HUNTERS toys alongside viewings of the thrilling new DVD series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, digital play areas and the opportunity for fans to have a customisable picture taken with OPTIMUS PRIME and the new BEAST HUNTERS against a green screen.

The OPTIMUS PRIME truck and TRANSFORMERS Station will be at the following events this Summer:
