We've received a recent press release presenting the collaboration between Hasbro and SmarTots, a China-based company dedicated to the development of educational apps for iOS and Android systems. The two companies will be creating a series of apps for children, using Hasbro's franchises, including our own favourite transforming robots! Check out the full press release below.

BEIJING, Dec. 10, 2013 -- SmarTots, a leader in mobile learning games for kids, and Hasbro, the international toy manufacturer, are partnering to create a new coloring experience for three- to six-year-olds on the iPad.

With the new Transformers coloring game, developed by SmarTots for iOS, kids can use a variety of art tools to color in and decorate their favorite Transformers characters. The app seeks to cultivate creativity, and kids can express themselves as neatly or messily as they want!

"Transformers is one of the most exciting brands that we could imagine working with. We're thrilled to be creating a kid-friendly product using these renowned characters," says Jesper Lodahl, SmarTots CEO. "Our creative art apps are very well received by kids and parents alike, and adding Transformers to the mix adds a whole new layer of appeal."

SmarTots is also developing apps for other Hasbro brands like My Little Pony and Tonka, with plans to release in them in near future.

The creative art apps currently offered by SmarTots have already amassed over 1 million downloads (according to App Annie). This is due in part to the upward trends of the Chinese mobile market in both the gaming and education categories.

According to a recent survey[1] of parents in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, a colossal 49.6 percent of parents would use a mobile device to teach their children. Hardware manufacturers like Samsung are also tapping into the kids space as products like the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids, a tablet designed to be used primarily by young ones, come to the market.

About SmarTots:

SmarTots is a developer, publisher and platform for kids' apps on iOS and Android. The company's mission is to change the idea that learning and fun are separate concepts. Every SmarTots app strives to stimulate the curiosity and creativity of kids, to engage and educate.

SmarTots is a Softbank backed company based in Beijing, and is active in the China market. The company was founded in 2010 by Jesper Lodahl of Denmark and Victor Wong of Canada.

Jayson Napolitano of Scarlet Moon Productions sent us a message to inform us of Vince DiCola's newest work. Mr. DiCola is well known in the Transformers fandom due to his quite excellent soundtrack for the 1986 Transformers: The Movie. A deluxe edition with extended and unreleased tracks debuted as a BotCon exclusive in 1997, titled "Til All Are One".

His newest work is called "Christmas Adventure", for the Saturday Morning RPG video game available on Steam and mobile devices.

Here's what Mr. Napolitano had to say

Hello!

Thought you might be interested to hear composer Vince DiCola has just released a Christmas medley that's featured in his soundtrack for Saturday Morning RPG, which will be released in its entirety next month.

Vince has long been a supporter of the Transformer community, and even though this news doesn't pertain to Transformers itself, I think it's relevant to his fans, and he'd love your help spreading the word!

http://www.loudr.fm/release/christmas-a ... -rpg/7P37H

I'd love for you guys to cover it and maybe even talk to Vince about it (there's plenty of Transformers-esque themes in the game, and even some Transformer-esque robots!).


It's true, Vince, much like Stan Bush (who has been covered many times here), has been a supporter of Transformers for quite some time.

You can buy the nearly 9 minute song at the link mentioned above ($1.29)
You can find out more about Saturday Morning RPG here: http://www.mightyrabbitstudios.com/?page_id=48

Saturday Morning RPG is an episodic role-playing game set in world heavily inspired by 1980s Saturday morning cartoons. Players take the role of Martin “Marty” Michael Hall, an average high-school student who has just been granted an incredible power. This power leads him to attract the ire of the world’s most notorious villain, Commander Hood.

“Megatron Rises” Nike Air CJ81 Trainer and Action Figure - Press Release

NikeInc.com have uploade a press release to describe the recently shown Nike Air Megatron Trainer, and the Calvin Johnson Jr Megatron action figure by Hasbro, based on the Generations IDW Deluxe Megatron toy. Check out what they have to say below, including an extensive promotional gallery of the two items!

Nike Football champions the TRANSFORMERS “More Than Meets the Eye” qualities of Calvin Johnson, Jr. by teaming up with Hasbro on the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max. As a special addition, the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max is sold with a first ever Hasbro TRANSFORMERS action figure designed for an athlete in conjunction with a shoe release.

Calvin Johnson, Jr. has redefined the wide-receiver position and become an un-guardable force with a powerful nickname - MEGATRON. Like the fictional TRANSFORMERS DECEPTICON leader, Johnson taps into his superhuman-like skills to push the limits of his position, and the game, in a relentless quest for dominance.

Designed to amplify Johnson’s powerhouse athletic ability when training in the gym and on the turf, the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max features adaptive traction, lockdown support, and Max Air cushioning. In true MEGATRON form, all core attributes of the shoe are energized in a design that marries Johnson’s on-field persona with his human side.

The Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer’s purple upper gives the shoe a robotic, armored look, while the red accents refer back to the secondary color of the action figure. Under the forefoot strap, Johnson’s favorite MEGATRON quote, “Show no mercy,” appears. It’s a reminder of the athletic mindset needed to succeed at the highest level, and the perseverance required to rise to the top. The metallic silver heel of the trainer carries a classic TRANSFORMERS grid pattern as well as a bold, iconic DECEPTICON logo at center.

Produced in collaboration with Hasbro, the 5-inch purple and red TRANSFORMERS MEGATRON action figure inspired by Calvin Johnson mirrors the cues of his signature Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max. The distinctive red cruciform pattern found on the toebox and upper of the trainer are utilized on the arms and feet of the figure. Johnson’s signature appears alongside the iconic DECEPTICON shield on MEGATRON’S chest. In robot mode, the MEGATRON figure is designed to be broad yet agile, and the iconic “wing” jet conversion is meant to mirror Johnson’s speed and power.

Complementing the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II draws more muted inspiration from the TRANSFORMERS character. A tonal, reflective circuitry board pattern is featured on the medial and lateral quarter panels, and like the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the DECEPTICON logo appears welded at the heel. Premium Nubuck is used at the overlays, and a glow-in-the-dark outrigger punctuates the sole tooling. The final TRANSFORMERS inspired flourish is a removable strap across the upper.

In further celebration of Johnson’s athletic achievements, the limited edition Megatron Rises 3-Pack incorporates the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II, and a special edition Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD Cleat. Inspired by the ALLSPARK from TRANSFORMERS lore, the box of the Megatron Rises 3-Pack is a unique, converting cube-shaped design. Decorated entirely with original artwork, the lines of the box mimic robotic surfaces and are augmented by triangles, hash marks, x’s, and o’s in reference to the football field and offensive passing plays. The effect is, like Calvin Johnson, “More Than Meets The Eye” - a package that opens to reveal all three shoes and the Hasbro action figure.

Exclusive to the Megatron Rises 3-Pack, The Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD shares the same MEGATRON-inspired design as the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max and celebrates Johnson’s true dominance of the receiver position. The cleat combines natural motion with superior lockdown to allow Johnson’s full athletic ability to flourish.

In honor of Johnson’s number, 81 Megatron Rises Packs will release exclusively at 21 Mercer in NYC, select Nike Yardline doors, and Nike.com. The CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max and the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II will be available at select Nike retail locations and online at nike.com.

Jonathan Cathey of The Loyal Subjects sent us a note to let the public know that their exclusive Starscream and Cobra Commander set will be available at the Newbury Comics store, located in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday November 23rd. Designer Les Schettkoe will make an appearance during this event.

We've included the press release and images below

To our Friends, Family and Partners,



The Loyal Subjects are expanding the Transformers line of mini collectibles and combining them with G.I. Joe for the very first time! Up to now, only Hasbro has mashed these two delicious, heroic and equally villainous worlds together – most recently during the 2012 SDCC campaign where Cobra Commander piloted Starscream. Of Course! It makes perfect sense! Not only are these two of the Universe’s most treacherous villains, Stascream needs a leader to direct him to his selfish spoils! If not Megatron, who better than Cobra Commander?



These two characters are linked more than most think. The same voice talent for Starscream was also the voice of Cobra Commander. These two characters belong together in the lore of treachery and villainy.



The Loyal Subjects are proud to announce the Exclusive Cobra Commander x Starscream two-pack set with our esteemed and famed retail partner Newbury Comics! Only available through Newbury Comics for a cool collectible price – between $28.00-$30.00 per set (please check with Newbury Comics). The 2 pack boasts two three inch figurines and a gold stun blaster wielded by Cobra Commander. Exclusive and special window box packaging keeps these collectibles unique so keep the box!



The Loyal Subjects and series designer Les Schettkoe will be on hand at the Newbury Comics Providence, Rhode Island location Saturday November 23rd from 2p-5:30p. Door prizes, raffles and special Hasbro give-aways will be on hand so don’t miss out! Providence is the hometown of Hasbro and one of Newbury Comic’s busiest locations so what better place to kick this party off right!



Edition size – 1,000 Sets



See you there!



About The Loyal Subjects –

As Donnie and Marie famously said when describing their act, "I'm a little bit Country and I'm a little bit Rock and Roll", or the incidental marriage of two flavorful elements (Chocolate and Peanut Butter) merging into a tasty flash of brilliance, the same experimental spirit can be said when describing The Loyal Subjects - "We're a little bit Willy Wonka, dunked in a Koonsian ether topped off with some Iggy Pop." Voila! The Loyal Subjects in a nutshell.


The Loyal Subjects was born in 2009. Our Mission? Let's have fun, do what we like and keep true to a creative spirit. So far so good. What do we value? The creative process, our ideas and most importantly, YOU!
We hope that we can keep you engaged, entertained and we plan on surpassing your expectations. Stick with us kids, we're going places!
