According to this post, by CYBERGEEKS Alliance, Hasbro has set up a contest for a Lucky Draw Silver Jetfire figure. At this time, it seems to be aimed at the Malaysian Hasbro sector, due to the inclusion of "SDN BHD" (Sendirian Berhad), meaning "private limited" in Malay, and the name of the retailer Aeon. We do not know at this time whether or not it will expand outside of the Asian region, but as soon as we know, you will.

Here are the requirements (taken directly from the flyer):

-Purchase one unit of Jetfire

-Complete the lucky draw form and answer the questionnaire

-Send the form and the original purchase receipt to the address listed on the back of the form

-All entries must reach Hasbro by October 15th

It states that only 3 will be given out and that winners will be notified via e-mail.

We've mirrored the image below:

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.

Hasbro and Shapeways To Allow Fanmade Licensed Item Printing

A small but significant update on the collaboration between Hasbro and 3D printing company Shapeways, thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com user Autobot Genocide. It appears as though the initial licensing agreement worked better than expected, and Makezine reports the new initiative of allowing fan-made material to be designed and printed for a fee - check out more here and below!

Hasbro and Shapeways want you to profit from your fan-made artwork based on Hasbro toys.

The announcement is an expansion of the two companies’ new partnership; last month they launched a joint venture to allow select independent artists to post and sell their My Little Pony creations on their new collaboration site superfanart.com. The companies would split the revenue from art sales based on the kitschy, popular colorful horses.

[...]

"It was clear to me when we were only doing original work that the next big step is derivative work,” says Shapeways’ cofounder and CEO Peter Weijmarshausen, explaining the movement into a new area for the company. He also explains that the project came together relatively quickly, moving forward in just the last few months after some initial discussions with Hasbro at Maker Faire earlier this year. “Hasbro has the attitude to enable rather than disable,” he says.

Transformers News: Re: Hasbro and 3D Systems Team Up - Licensed 3D Printers Coming Soon?

As you may have heard, Hasbro and Shapeways are working together to encourage artists to create and sell 3D designs based on Hasbro’s iconic brands.

Given this early success, we want to expand this opportunity to include more artists, more Hasbro brands and more 3D printed awesomeness.
This letter is an invitation for you to become part of SuperFanArt and the broader Hasbro and Shapeways communities, so we can help you promote and sell your designs to other fans. If you have a passion to develop 3D-printable art based on any of the following brands, we’d like to hear from you:

• Dragonvale
• Dungeons & Dragons
• Monopoly
• My Little Pony
• Scrabble (to be sold in US and Canada only)
• Transformers

Get your designs ready and visit SuperFanArt.com on August 22 for instructions on how to upload your work for promotion and sale. We hope you’ll join us in expanding the power of 3D printing by becoming a part of this exciting movement!
Your friends at Hasbro & Shapeways.
