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.

It never ends! Like a vast, predatory bird, the grandfather of Transformers comics fiction has just been announced by TFNation as joining the list of guests attending the new UK convention in August, in Birmingham, UK. Check out more info on Simon Furman below, and be warned: you won't believe the things he can do now...

It really does feel right for somebody who has worked so hard from the Cybertronian's earliest days be here with us to celebrate the bold new era of TFNation.
We would keep you here all day if we were to list Simon's complete Transformers credits. Much of his work comprises the bedrock of the comics, animation and films we all enjoy today. Simon's writing has stood the test of time and his work is still held in high regard today. He has worked for the successive publishers Marvel, Dreamwave and IDW.
Simon has also lent his comic talents to many other titles including Scream, Thundercats, Alpha Flight, Doctor Who, as well asco-creating Dragon's Claws and of course a certain Freelance Peacekeeping Agent who Marvel keep teasing may return...
In addition to his writing, Simon also served as an editor for Marvel UK and Titan Books.
Away from comics, Simon has been involved in the world of animation from Beast Wars, X-Men: Evolution, Dan Dare to most recently serving as both Head Writer and Script Editor for CITV's The Matt Hatter Chronicles.
Over the course of the weekend, you will have the opportunity to hear more about this storied career from the man himself and in much greater detail.

To keep up with Simon's current work, he maintains a blog over at:
http://tfnation.us11.list-manage2.com/t ... 1e517e5c6f (http://tfnation.us11.list-manage.com/tr ... 1e517e5c6f)

While helping Universal Studios Hollywood with their press release earlier today, I discovered various content from BotCon 2014 wasn't posted on Seibertron.com. Sometimes after these events, there's so much wrap-up that certain content gets overlooked. Old news or not, I felt like it was a disservice not having this content available to all of you so I decided it was time to post it before it fell to the wayside again. Better late than never, right? Besides, what Transformers fan doesn't love hearing Stan Bush performing "The Touch" one more time!

Without further ado, here's some additional Seibertron.com content from June 20th, 2014 at the Transformers Fan Event at Universal Studios Hollywood, in which many BotCon 2014 attendees participated. Enjoy!

Lunar New Year comes to life within Universal Plaza, a grand courtyard situated at the heart of the theme park, where guests will be ushered in to celebrate the "Year of the Monkey" under a curtain of customary red Chinese lanterns and a stunning plum blossom arch.

A highlight of the time-honored tradition will feature the annual appearance of a Mandarin-speaking MEGATRON who will engage guests in conversation characteristic of his DECEPTICON TRANSFORMER's persona.

TFNation has announced another guest; designer and illustrator, Emiliano Santalucia. You can read what they have to say about him below and if you would like additional info on the event, you can visit their site here.

We are honoured to announce that renowned concept designer and illustrator, Emiliano Santalucia, shall be joining us for our inaugural convention!

Emiliano is a concept artist on the live action Transformers movie series produced by Paramount Pictures. He has also undertaken substantial work as a concept artist and toy designer for Hasbro Inc. on various Transformers toy lines including Dark Of The Moon, Transformers: Crossovers, Generations, Robots In Disguise, the fan favourite Combiner Wars and the highly anticipated Titans Return. Some of the toys he has worked on include Generations Rhinox, Rattrap, Waspinator and Metroplex; Combiner Wars Sky Lynx; Titans Return Galvatron, Fortress Maximus and Skull Cruncher to name but a few. On top of his film and toy credentials, Emiliano has also worked on Transformers comics for both IDW and Devils Due.

Despite his amazing range of work with the Transformers brand, Emiliano is probably best known for his association with Mattel's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe brand. He also co-founded The Power and Honor Foundation; a non-profit organisation which exists to collect, archive, preserve, and educate the public about the creative origins of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power. Emiliano's MOTU work covers comics, toy / statue design, art books and Definitive Films' Power of Grayskull documentary.

Outside of these two brands, Emiliano has also worked on other comic book series from Star Comics and Play Press, Image Comics, MVC Creations, Devils Due and IDW (including G.I Joe, Power Rangers) as well as working on various DVD covers (The Real Ghostbusters; Defenders of the Earth; Bravestarr; Blackstar and Hero High).

For a glimpse of Emiliano's work take a look at his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/emiliano.santalucia.artist/).

Emiliano will be signing autographs and selling artwork from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016 – we look forward to seeing you there!
