As any Transformers fan can attest, the Robots in Disguise have an ability to make things all better in our every day lives. It looks like they'll be taking their "Human Alliance" a step further to help out a great cause.

On October 4th, 2009 at 11:00 AM, Hasbro Children's Hospital will be hosting its inaugural "The Walk: Hasbro Childrens Hospital" Fundraising event. All walkers are welcome to join the event that will be paced by none other than Bumblebee, the first official 2010 Chevy Camaro.

Walkers and their teams from all over Rhode Island and southeastern New England will be able to choose two-mile or five-mile strolls along the scenic and pedestrian-friendly paths by the rivers in historic downtown Providence. While the walkers share a common goal -- enhancing Hasbro Children's Hospital's care for kids -- many will have personal reasons for their involvement.


Timothy J. Babineau, M.D., Rhode Island Hospital's president and chief executive officer, says, "We decided to start this walk in addition to our very successful annual gala. This event will allow members of our community, who prefer to support a different type of activity, to help the young patients at Hasbro Children's Hospital. It's easy for anyone to get involved and be a part of The Walk."

Member Fender Bender has found an interesting article about the return of the toy section at various Sears stores in North America.

http://www.reuters.com/article/companyN ... WZ20090811

WILMINGTON, Delaware (Reuters) - Sears stuck its toe back into the toy business on Tuesday, with 20 stores clearing space for kids to interact with the latest best-sellers and nostalgic throwbacks like tin tops.

The retailer hopes the toy departments will fill a void left by the demise of mall specialty stores such as KB Toys.

"That's what we're hearing more and more from our core consumer, that they would like to buy (toys) in the mall," said Julia Fitzgerald, chief marketing officer for Sears' toy business.

Sears, a unit of Sears Holding Corp (SHLD.O), plans to dedicate about 1,500 square feet of floor space in each of the 20 stores and offer roughly 600 different items.

The venture returns Sears to a segment with which it has a rocky history. Earlier this decade, Sears experimented with "store-within-a-store" partnerships with KB Toys, but ultimately pulled the plug.

Since KB Toys went out of business earlier this year, closing its 460 stand-alone stores, a niche has opened for Sears, Fitzgerald said.

Sears operates 929 department stores.

Popular toy destinations now include stand-alone stores like Toys "R" Us, as well as discounters Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N) and Target Corp (TGT.N).

Fitzgerald said Sears will carry toys made by Hasbro Inc (HAS.N) and Mattel Inc (MAT.N) as well as Leapfrog Enterprises Inc (LF.N), which makes educational toys, and Schylling, a maker of retro products such as tin jack-in-the-boxes.

Sears Holdings, formed in 2005 when hedge fund manager Edward Lampert merged Sears and Kmart, has struggled to sell its mainstay Craftsman tools and Kenmore appliances amid a housing market crash.

The other focus of its retail operations, its apparel business, has been squeezed by discounters such as Wal-Mart and Target and a slumping economy. As a result, analysts have said Sears has a glut of floor space in most locations.

Sears has been experimenting with different pathways to growth, such as offering lay-away plans and letting customers buy online and return or pick up in stores.

The company's shares, which have doubled since the stock market bottomed in early March, were down 2.1 percent at $75.32 in afternoon Nasdaq trading.

We'd like to thank Simon Plumbe of Auto Assembly 2009 for dropping us a line today with all the latest info on this great event.

Auto Assembly 2009 is now just two weeks to go and is already Europe's biggest ever Transformers convention with almost 450 people pre-registered to-date, beating the previous European attendance record of 423 set by Auto Assembly 2008 and we're still getting bookings coming in all the time... We are now convinced that we will hit the magical figure of 500 attendees that European events have wanted to reach for so long...



Booking Deadlines Updated



Even though the convention is incredibly close now, there is STILL time for you to pre-register! As we have said, the cut-off dates for pre-registrations were set a few weeks ago and are:-



Standard online bookings for weekend and one-day passes (UK):- 10th August 2009

Standard online bookings for weekend and one-day passes (International):- 3rd August 2009

Standard postal bookings for weekend and one-day passes (UK):- 5th August 2009

Standard postal bookings for weekend and one-day passes (International):- 3rd August 2009

Non-Attendee package purchases (worldwide):- 9:00 pm, 12th August 2009



So obviously for those of you living outside of the UK you need to get your bookings in VERY QUICKLY. However, for those of you who are booking for the FULL WEEKEND ONLY, we can offer you the chance to collect your passes on the Friday evening and we will send out your info packs and confirmation details electronically. This will ONLY apply to weekend pre-registrants and you must email us at the same time as booking to take advantage of this and colection of passes MUST be made on Friday 14th August. Bookings made for collection can only be taken online and must be made by no later than 9:00 pm on 12th August 2009 to allow us to produce your passes ready for collection.





Please note that these are the ABSOLUTE latest date that we can accept bookings and guarantee that your passes will reach you in time for the convention. If you book after these dates, we will do everything possible to get your passes to you before the convention takes place but please bear in mind the time taken for delivery and that we will have work pressures and we will be preparing, dismantling and packing all of our equipment for the convention on Wednesday 12th August so NO bookings will be able to be processed after 9:00 pm on that date.



We do anticipate that we will have on-the-door places available but at the moment we do not know how many of these there will be and tickets are selling very quickly at the moment. These will be announced on the website once pre-bookings close but to ensure your place pre-registration is recommended.



Hasbro Make A Return!



Yes, Hasbro are returning to Auto Assembly! Once again there will be a display from Hasbro and this time they will be sending a display along to the convention showcasing the 2009 toy range with twice as much space as they had last year! Once again, they will also be donating a huge amount of toys to the Charity Auction and Raffle...



Next Of Kins Performs Auto Assembly Official Theme Song



If you haven't read it on the website, Auto Assembly 2009 now has it's own official theme song for the convention. Written and performed by Next Of Kin who are appearing in concert at the convention on the Saturday evening doing a show of covers from the Animated movie, their song "Transform" has been chosen as the convention anthem for 2009.

IDW has just posted a press release on their website about the future of Transformer's Generation One related comics:

San Diego, CA (July 24, 2009) - After the huge success of this summer's blockbuster TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN movie, IDW is keeping the excitement going with three new TRANSFORMERS series. Under license from Hasbro, IDW is proud to offer fans The TRANSFORMERS, the first ongoing series in years, written by the critically-acclaimed Mike Costa. Coming in November, TRANSFORMERS #1 starts things off with not one, but two, huge events so CYBERTON-shattering that the lives of the TRANSFORMERS characters will never be the same.

Spinning out of the events of the new ongoing series will be two miniseries. The four-issue TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE puts BUMBLEBEE between a rock and a hard place with his own friends, while TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the Wreckers plots the course of AUTOBOTS in space as they confront a new foe who just might tear the (Dave do these need all caps? CAPS ARE BEST) Springer, Kup, and their cadre of AUTOBOT heroes apart.

"This is the first ongoing TRANSFORMERS series for IDW, and there's a good reason to do it now. These stories are too big and too important to contain in even several volumes of miniseries. And it all starts with events in TRANSFORMERS #1," said IDW's TRANSFORMERS editor, Andy Schmidt. "This is the best jumping on point for new comics or TRANSFORMERS fans in years. We're embarking on a whole new journey and an exciting new direction."

The TRANSFORMERS will debut in November, helmed by Mike Costa
with art and covers by returning, fan-favorite, artistic dynamo Don Figueroa. This series is the basis for the two new miniseries, creating an unstoppable combination of new TRANSFORMERS comics.

Debuting in December, writer Zander Cannon and artist Chee masterfully create Bumblebee's story in this four-issue miniseries. TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE spins out of the ongoing series and is a must-read for any fan. TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the Wreckers is set in space concurrent with the ongoing series. Shedding light on the conflicts outside of Earth, long-time TRANSFORMERS creator Nick Roche masterfully foreshadows upcoming events in the ongoing series, while taking fans on a wild ride.



The TRANSFORMERS will be available in stores in November.

TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE will be available in stores in December.

TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the Wreckers will be available in stores in January.
