It might be Labor Day weekend in the States, but the worker bees of Seibertron.com are still busy! Check out the first two Bumblebee galleries this weekend featuring none other than Takara Tomy's Movie Advanced AD27 Bumblebee and AD04 High Octane Bumblebee, the counterparts to the Hasbro Age of Extinction Deluxes. Head back later this weekend for 3 more AOE Bumblebee galleries swarming in.
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.
For those of you waiting for Transformers: Age of Extinction to be able to view from your own home, Blu-Ray.com have updated their site with a clip from Paramount Pictures on the creation of the Dinobots, teasing the release of the disc on 30th September. In addition, they've rounded up most of the variant releases of the movie exclusive to different retailers, and we've mirrored both clip and pictures below - check them out!
Paramount Home Media Distribution has sent us a new clip from a behind-the-scenes featurette which will appear on its upcoming Blu-ray release of Transformers: Age of Extinction. The release will be available for purchase on September 30th.
Paramount Home Video Distribution has also sent us packshots of all the different versions of the Transformers: Age of Extinction Blu-ray which are being sold at various retail outlets (there are 9 in total, standard release included).
The Transformers: Age of Extinction four-disc Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and three-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack feature more than three hours of illuminating bonus content. From selecting fierce new cars and designing new TRANSFORMERS characters to constructing elaborately detailed sets, this comprehensive footage truly takes viewers inside the fun, hard work and excitement of making an electrifying global blockbuster film.
The spectacular Combo Packs also include an in-depth interview with Michael Bay about his approach to the film's jaw-dropping action sequences, a crash course on the "Bayhem" of being on set for the massive, global production, a revealing look at the design process inside Hasbro Headquarters, and more. Plus there's even more than meets the eye with the hilarious TRANSFORMERS KREON trailer where KREON figures take you through all of the blockbuster TRANSFORMERS movies. In addition, the Combo Packs include a brand new Angry Bird TRANSFORMERS trailer where birds and pigs turn into Autobots and Deceptihogs, creating havoc on Piggy Island. The Blu-ray 3D includes expanded images as seen in IMAX theaters.
The repaint trend continues, with another video review by fellow Seibertronian grimdragon2001, who was able to find a Walmart exclusive two-pack Transformers: Age of Extinction Grimlock and Optimus Prime! This is the one featuring the Energon Cruellock repaint for the Dinobot leader, and a redeco of Revenge of the Fallen Legends Class Optimus Prime. Check it out below.
A fellow fan, by the name of Jeremy Boutwell, has shared a link to his video review of the Wal*Mart Exclusive Decepticon Stinger (Legion/Legends Class) and Dinobot Slug (Deluxe Class) 2-Pack, on our Facebook page. Consisting of a redeco of the Legends Class ROTF Sideways figure and a redeco (and faction change!) of Beast Wars Neo Guiledart, the set is affordable at it's current price of $14.88 and it's available now at most Wal*Mart stores across the country.

It seems Hasbro Studios are trying to shake things up a bit in their corner, hiring a new, and seemingly well-established, head of development in Josh Feldman. He has development credits for the X-Men series and the Fantastic Four movies, as well as already working with hasbro on Magic: The Gathering, for FOX. The full piece at Variety can be found here, but check out a snippet below!
“With his tremendous experience in brand-focused film storytelling, Josh is ideally suited for this role as we look to expand our feature business,” which includes a third “G.I. Joe” film, Davis said. “His focus will be on both our franchise and new brands in live-action and animation, and Josh will work closely with the studio’s TV development, brand, design, digital and licensing teams to deliver full storytelling integration across our brand blueprint.”
Toys'R'Us Canada may have just listed the pre-orders for the Transformers: Age of Extinction Breakout Battle set, but fellow Seibertronian gema has it in-hand - and has shared a pictorial review of Rollbar (and some shots of Optimus too) with us! You can find the whole piece on his blog, and some of the images mirrored below.
He might not be a popular choice and I doubt a lot of collectors would be looking for him. However, aside from the lack of paint on his head (and should've been a different head altogather), Rollbar is somewhat interesting in his own way...especially if you are a mold collector.
And in further repaint exclusive news, check out the following video review from fellow Seibertron.com member grimdragon2001 of the Walmart exclusive two-pack of Bumblebee and Strafe, featuring a minor repaint of Legends Class Bumblebee from Revenge of the Fallen, and a blue version of Beast Wars Basic Terrorsaur!
