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.

Headed by Cassandra Conroy and her father Mike, the self-styled People's Choice Awards provide fans around the world with a fresh opportunity to honour their favourite writers, artists and titles of the previous year. "I'm delighted to give a voice to both the fans and professionals" said Cassandra.
The True Believer Comic Awards will be held annually in July at the London Film and Comic Con.
The 2014 prizes will be handed out as part of this year's London Film & Comic Con with the inaugural ceremony being held at Earls Court on Saturday, July 12th. In attendance will be legendary Marvel Universe co-creator Stan Lee, who is making his last ever official European convention appearance.

The Transformers: Age of Extinction marketing campaigns are really amping up around the globe! From Mumbai, via IndianTelevision.com, we have news of a Hasbro-licensed 12-foot tall, 300kg heavy Optimus Prime statue touring six Indian cities to promote the film release - and give fans a chance to win premiere screening tickets! Check out more info here, and images below.
Aiming to bring viewers a step closer to their favourite hero – Optimus Prime, the makers have made a whopping 12-foot high statue that weighs about 300kg. Warrior, fearless and righteous – Optimus Prime is the ultimate leader of the Autobots who are constantly raging wars against a rival faction of robots called the Decepticons.
Under a special license from Hasbro (American multinational that is one of the largest toy makers in the world), this figurine is made to exact design specifications. The viewing experience of this complex figurine has been enhanced by intricate lighting. Encased in a special package, a dedicated container has been hired to transport the robot locally around India. Optimus Prime will tour six cities, starting with Pune and eventually making his way to Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad.
Along with all of the other merchandising we've seen for Transformers: Age of Extinction, there's now a giveaway from Big Red sodas, as well.
