Hasbro China Manager Zhang Yuchen Expects Big Success for Transformers

It will come as no surprise to people following the news on Transformers - from the Tencent game, to CybertronCon, to the recent Sun Wu Kong rumour, and all the way back to the Age of Extinction collaboration - but China is one of the biggest developing markets and audiences for the robot brand, and the general manager of Hasbro China also believes it to be the case. Speaking to China Daily, Zhang Yuchen had this to say:

The Transformers may have been around for more than three decades, but Zhang Yuchen, general manager of Hasbro China, the parent company of the brand, believes that the popularity of the iconic toy figures are just about to hit its peak, especially with four Transformers films set to hit the silver screens by 2025.

Zhang is optimistic that with the surge in nostalgia for the toys and the growing profitability of selling peripheral products from a movie in China, 2017 could very well be “the year of Transformers”.

“It’s been very exciting because over the last decade, the movie universe has given old fans something new and brought in a whole new generation of Transformers fans. That is probably one of the biggest forces driving Transformers in China,” said Zhang.

“We now expect to see explosive growth in the sale of Transformers products in China with the upcoming series of movies,” he added.


Similar trends have been noticed with the 2007 Paramount live-action movie in Western markets, too, so this is not entirely new. What is new is that the brand is looking to make a big mark in the country through media, movies, games, toys and a themed hotel in Shanghai in 2018. Remember:

The second installment of the movie franchise, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen broke the 12-year box office record set by Titanic to become the most-watched foreign movie in China.

In 2014, the fourth movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction, generated 300 million yuan ($45 million) in China, contributing to almost one-third of the global revenue. The upcoming one in the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, is scheduled to be released in 2017.

Machinima's Transformers: Combiner Wars Episode 2 Review

Seibertronians, it's review time! As reported on earlier, Machinima's Combiner Wars series now has a second episode, and it's now online! After a less than satisfactory first episode, this episode will really tell the fate of the series. Yay or Nay? Let's break it down to find out.

We start on Cybertron this time, as apposed to Caminus in the first episode, and we quickly change to a shot from what I'm assuming is Starscream, as it cuts back and we see him flying just a moment later. Starscream is on a reconnaissance mission, to gather information on the state of Cybertron. On his flyover, he witnesses some bombs going off on the surface below.

From this vantage point it almost looks like Starscream was the one that dropped the bombs, but I seriously doubt this is the case.

We pan backwards, as mentioned before, to see the Decepticon fly to a large silver building. Here again we have an issue with the choppy animation. As mentioned previously on the boards, Starscream appears really choppy, while the background moves fluidly with the camera.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Starscream enters the building

Starscream enters the building from a top landing bay, and slowly descends using the thrusters on his feet. He lands and meets with Rodimus and, randomly, the Mistress of Flame. These bots are apart of the "Council" we've been hearing about.

They discuss the state and threat of the combiners, and how word of Computron and Menasor's fight has broken out on Cybertron. This is why there's so much unrest on the planet. Peace has been achieved between the AutoBots and Decepticons - and the council doesn't want to ruin that. They all consider using the "Enigma of Combination" for one reason or another. Rodimus wants to use it to take over an army of combiners, turning a threat into an asset. The Mistress wants to use it to wipe out all the combiners in one felled swoop. Starscream has an objection to this, as the combiners are transformers, too. Wiping them all out would be genocide. Besides, some of the Combiners have been loyal to, even fought for, the council.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Rodimus and the Mistress of Flame are introduced to the series

The Mistress feels it isn't Starscream's place to talk about killing other transformers, given his past. We also learn in this discussion that not only is Optimus Prime in hiding, but Megatron as well.

See, now we're getting somewhere. Now we have a story to work with. One that plays with the original concept that was proposed, and not too terribly I might add. There are still some issues, such as some of the lines delivered are a bit stiff, and the mouth-movement-to-actual-voice-and-words is way off and not ignore-able, but it goes leaps and bounds above episode one. But we're not done yet.

We start to view the council meeting through the scope of a sniper rifle. It targets Rodimus, Starscream, and the Mistress. The council walks over to the Enigma of Combination, and agree they should study all it's powers before making any brash decisions.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
A sniper sets up an attack on the council

The sniper is revealed to be Windblade, set on stopping the council one way or another. She decides to fire at the Enigma, and somehow misses. She hits Starscream in the shoulder, and he falls. Another problem I have is right here. There's such a weird, delayed reaction to Starscream being shot by the rest of the council. There's a good two seconds before they really do anything. The Dialogue and sound effects become a little clunky here, as the Mistress raises the alarm and Rodimus checks on the former Decepticon.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion ThreadThe Enigma of Combination

We return to Windblade. She hears a noise behind her and immediately jumps and turns around. It's revealed to be Optimus Prime, now out of exile. He still doesn't say anything, and the episode ends pretty much on the same shot as the previous one.

Overall, episode two is a lot better than episode one. It gives us actual emotions, and actual dilemmas for the characters to face. It still suffers from that 5 minute time constraint, and trying to make people understand a whole new continuity with a new story line in 5 minutes in near-impossible. My only wish is that the past to episodes would have had a bit more of each other in them. Meaning, episode one, the hard-to-follow action-feast that it was, could have definitely used a little more (or, a lot more) story. And, on the flip side, episode two could have used a bit more battles and action. But, all in all, you're starting to win me back Machinima. That Wheeljack name-drop didn't hurt, either.

While Seibertron.com was on its way to New York and the Javits Centre (and something slipped in the internet cracks), Toy Fair 2016 has already started for Hasbro and the Transformers brand! Tuning in to the investors webcast, we have collated below all of the relevant information for fans of the giant robot franchise, including all the relevant images from the presentation shown during the event.

Note: Opinions and statements expressed during webcast may not result in actual results. Photography not allowed.

First speaker is Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner, repeating some of the information covered in the interview given in the past couple of days. Overall, good franchise revenues, despite Transformers decline.

Hasbro is intent on building on digital gaming - venturing for the first time into mobile gaming with Backflip’s Transformers: Earth Wars. More below.

Paramount: Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg are confirmed as returning for Transformers 5, which is set to be released on June 23rd 2017. No images, but more on all this below.
Multi-brand universe with Allspark Pictures: Micronauts, G.I. Joe, ROM the SpaceKnight, M.A.S.K., Visionaries.

Transformers News: Toy Fair New York 2016 Coverage - Hasbro Webcast


Deb Thomas CFO - General investor and economy information.

John Frascotti - Hasbro Brands
The biggest share is among 12-17 year olds, but Hasbro also dedicated to special collections in the form of Star Wars Black Series, Marvel Legends, Transformers Generations, with the intention of connecting multiple generations of fans.
China Transformers Live show mentioned (more later)
Big focus was placed on the ‘modern fan survey’: identifying consumers from casual fan to superfan. Entertainment and storytelling are recognised as being crucial to the brands, fandom is not just about collecting the action figures.

Transformers News: Toy Fair New York 2016 Coverage - Hasbro Webcast


Fans want to meaningfully participate - they feel a sense of ownership, loyalty, willingness to co-create, give feedback, participate in fan votes
Machinima Combiner Wars series mentioned, ‘short form entertainment’.

Transformers News: Toy Fair New York 2016 Coverage - Hasbro Webcast


Digital Gaming - As above, big focus for future Hasbro strategies.
Social Reward trend driving gaming (2bn gamers in the world!)
Gaming, competing, sharing - particularly excited for the new Backflip partnership: Transformers Earth Wars.

Transformers News: Toy Fair New York 2016 Coverage - Hasbro Webcast

Transformers News: Toy Fair New York 2016 Coverage - Hasbro Webcast


Transformers - Tom Warner and Jared Wade
Rich history of the brand, ‘but we’re just getting started’.
Fans are acknowledged and recognised as crucial to the brand (30% of all consumers), and they make no distinction between movie year or non-movie year: 2015 proved that.
Trypticon, the fan-vote poll winner, will be featuring in comic series, digital series, and of course, as a toy.
Transformers are expanding online presence to Instagram, Snapchat, Weibo - and we can expect more convention presence from Hasbro around the world.
Entertainment expansion: Live show in Las Vegas, Roll Out album, IDW Publishing (150+ stories planned for 2016 already).
A brief segment on trend and licensed apparel, fashion week, more clothing and accessories to be seen.
Hasbro is meaning to expand global reach, with a specific focus on China in 2016, as they establish a new blueprint - which includes the CybertronCon presence and the live show.

Entertainment focusing on multiple age brackets (yet somehow still insisting on it being all just for male fans):
Rescue Bots: Season 4 (longest running animated show for Transformers!), new theme (Race to the Rescue), new Rescue Bot Quickshadow.
Robots in Disguise: Season 2 airs in March on Cartoon Network - re-introducing the Mini-COn Weaponizers theme and gimmick. They show Power Surge Optimus Prime and NAME, which has four modes of play, automorph with minicon interaction.
Older fans: Machinima animated series, 8 episodes, 7 minutes each - Windblade’s perspective, Starscream has Enigma of Combination, fan-built first female combiner Victorion (as overwhelmingly requested by fans) will also appear in series. It sounds like the story is very close to the IDW version.
Backflip - Transformers: Earth Wars is the first part of Prime Wars trilogy.
In Fall 2016, we will have Titans Return, the second part of Prime Wars trilogy, that starts where the story of Earth Wars ends, but with a specific toy line. They point out that Titan Masters figures are compatible across entire line, and Fort Max is in showroom at Toy Fair.
[Video shown in room, not via link]

As for the cinematic universe, they reiterate the importance of the writers’ room at Paramount, and confirm Transformers 5 release on 23rd June 2017. They also revealed a Bumblebee spin-off movie for 2018, and the next movie in the main series to appear in 2019. Deadline seem to be confused about this. I’d rather trust Hasbro on that matter.
