Operation: Earth Wars! Space Ape Games invades TFNation!

The Decepticons have invaded Earth and only the Autobots can save us now, as the Transformer: Earth wars commence! This past June saw the hugely successful release of the Earth Wars mobile game and we are proud to announce the award-winning Space Ape games, will be in attendance at TFNation 2016!

Based on a story by TFNation guest Simon Furman, published by Backflip Studios and developed by Space Ape Games in partnership with Backflip Studios & Hasbro, Earth Wars puts you in-charge of a veritable army of Cybertronians as you attack and defend precious bases in order to defeat your enemies.

Chris White and the team will be attending on Saturday 20th August, with concept art, posters and development videos running throughout the weekend. The Space Ape crew are eager to meet both existing fans of the game and those new to it, and are busy planning a “beat the base” in-game competition, to those who think they are up to the challenge!


Space Ape have worked with some of the most pivotal people within the Transformers franchise to create this game. They have invested considerable time in shaping the game to please fans of the characters. We urge our attendees to take this chance to meet, and question the Space Ape team, not just as special guests, but as fellow fans of the franchise.

With the game so popular amongst our attendees, there are plans afoot for our own Sunday-based event, at the Space Ape table, to be run by fans, for fans. A great chance to bond with fellow attendees…. Then crush them under your Cybertronian heels!

Well Transformers fans, do you think you are worthy of being one of the top fandoms in the world? Think Transformers is one of the top selling brands over the past decade? How fast do you think Transformers sell on eBay?

Well, thanks to a release by eBay on the last decade of sales you can take a look and answer those questions finally! eBay's data covers all toys sold from 2006 to 2016 from all kinds of different brands. And if you look, Transformers is pretty prominent. Transformers was the number 3 selling brand over the course of those 10 years, ranking only behind Star Wars and Batman, and ahead of favorites such as Pokemon, Star Trek, Harry Potter and others. Also showing is the speed at which the sales have increased over the past 12 months, with Transformers ranking 9th behind current stars like Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Mr. Robot, and others while still beating Pokemon and Star Wars. Finally, a sales by the second stat was included, and it can be seen that a Transformer is sold on eBay once every 60 seconds.

We have mirrored these stats below for you to check out, and make sure you comment down in the energon pubs! We're big people, we have made Transformers well known!

Via children's entertainment news site Kidscreen, we have new of a new acqusition on Hasbro's behalf, as part of their Hasbro Studios and Allspark pictures scope: Boulder Media. Boulder is a highly successful and multi-award winning studio based in Dublin, and has been behind shows such as Go Jetters, Wander over Yonder and Danger Mouse. Read more below!


Irish animation studio Boulder Media has been acquired by Hasbro in a deal that greatly expands the Rhode Island-based toyco’s TV and feature film animation capabilities.

Terms of the transaction, which closed today, were not disclosed.

Founded in 2000 by Robert Cullen, the Dublin-based service studio has worked on Disney’s Wander Over Yonder, Go Jetters and Danger Mouse for BBC, as well as a crop of Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon series.

As a wholly owned subsidiary, Boulder, which currently has 150 employees, will continue to make toons on behalf of third-party clients, in addition to producing animated projects for Hasbro brands. Boulder will retain its brand name and the subsidiary will report into Stephen Davis, who as EVP and chief content officer leads Hasbro’s entertainment and consumer products licensing division.

Hasbro is no stranger to the world of storytelling. The company’s Hasbro Studios and its film label Allspark Pictures create entertainment brand-driven narratives across television, film and digital. And the company’s Entertainment and Licensing unit was a big winner in fiscal 2015, with double-digit revenue growth that brought in US$244.7 million, partly driven by the multi-year digital streaming deals inked for Hasbro Studios’ television programming in the first quarter of last year.

Fresh news from IDW Publishing, as two new editorial positions have been announced, with Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton receiving promotions in their editor roles! For a Transformers-related part, though, we also know that John 'Continuity' Barber is leaving his current role, and remain as a writer on the titles he has already been confirmed for, plus a third yet to be revealed book, post-Revolution. Check out the press release below!

IDW Publishing Announces Editorial Shifts and Promotions

Editors Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton Promoted To Group Editor and Senior Editor


San Diego, CA (July 12, 2016) – IDW Publishing has promoted two of its key editorial staff members, Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton. Both will continue to report to Editor-in-Chief/Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall.

Sarah has been promoted from Editor to the position of Group Editor. Sarah began her position at IDW in 2013 after six years of editing at DC/WildStorm. She has overseen the Star Trek and Disney lines to great success among other high profile titles including Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls plus critically acclaimed creator-driven titles such as Satellite Falling. In her new role, she will take on various Hasbro licenses including Jem and the Holograms. She loves cats and burritos.

Denton has been promoted from Editor to the position of Senior Editor. A former journalist at the San Diego Union-Tribune as well as comics retailer, Denton joined IDW in 2008 and edits such series as X-Files, Dirk Gently, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Judge Dredd, Orphan Black, the upcoming Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me, and more exciting projects yet to be announced. He loves dogs and Night Court reruns.

As part of these editorial shifts, IDW Publishing bids a fond farewell to Group Editor John Barber who previously edited Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, Micronauts, and Jem and the Holograms. In addition, John has contributed as a writer to such titles as Transformers, Back to the Future, and the upcoming event series, Revolution. John will remain creatively involved with IDW, writing a secret project yet-to-be-unveiled that spins out Revolution.

“As much as we’re all sad to see John Barber leave his key editorial spot at IDW, the change does also provide the opportunity to advance Sarah and Denton in well-earned ways,” said IDW’s Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. “And it also means we’ll be seeing additional writing projects from John as well, which is another bit of good news for IDW. John is a key part of Revolution and the events that spin out of it, and he’ll continue to help steer this new direction on a couple titles we’re excited to be announcing at SDCC a little later this month.”
