Autobots and Decepticons ‘Roll Out’ on Cartoon Network in First Quarter of 2016

BURBANK, C.A. - January 13, 2015 - Hasbro Studios, the Los Angeles-based entertainment division of Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), announced today that the popular kids television series Transformers: Robots in Disguise will return for a second season on Cartoon Network in the U.S., which consistently ranks as a top-rated network in Total Day for kids ages 6-11. The latest installment in the global TRANSFORMERS franchise will debut its second season in the first quarter of 2016.

"Transformers: Robots in Disguise continues to be a massive hit with kids across the country, launching with an outstanding debut season on Cartoon Network," said Hasbro’s Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer Stephen Davis. "Season two will bring back Bumblebee and his Autobots team for all new action-packed battles, fun-filled adventures and other humorous new characters with vibrant personalities that made season one a hit with kids. We continue to listen to our viewers’ feedback and are bringing back many fan-favorite characters, as well as some great surprises we know kids of all ages are going to love."

Set years after "Transformers: Prime," Robots in Disguise stars the lovable Bumblebee character, summoned by Optimus Prime to lead in a fight to save Earth from a new faction of escaped Decepticon prisoners by assembling a rogue team of unlikely Autobot heroes to capture their new enemies. Season two will see the return of a more confident, battle-tested Bumblebee as the leader of the Autobots, including his teammates Grimlock, Sideswipe, Strongarm, Fixit, Windblade and Drift. Protecting Earth becomes a mighty task as the team prepares to battle against menacing pairs of Cyclone Mini-Cons, who partner with Deployers to unleash the most powerful attacks and wreak even more destruction than ever. Our hero Bumblebee and his team prepare for battle with new power-ups and mini-con allies of their own, as they maintain their mission to protect the planet as robots in disguise. The series will continue to celebrate the continuous underlying themes of teamwork, companionship and the importance of standing up to wrongdoers.

The highly innovative TRANSFORMERS franchise is one of the largest global brands, spanning across television, film, consumer products and digital entertainment properties including gaming, apps, publishing, transmedia events, toys and licensing.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast, where we set a course into the new year of 2016 to navigate the pointlessly exaggerated danger of what's ahead. This episode features a packed crew, with host ScottyP being joined by regular podcast rockstars Megatronus, Counterpunch, Tigertrack24, Razorclaw0000, and recurring special guest star, Starscream/Paul from Ript Apparel. We hear if you like him on the show, you should buy a shirt from his site, but we also promise that's the only shilling that occurs involved with any of this and it's purely out of gratitude for his donation of time taken out to record.

Episode #134 “Whale Wars“ is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

First up, we start with spoiler-heavy discussion of "Sins of the Wreckers #2", to compliment Va'al's excellent review. Watch us speculate wildly! Or, you know, just listen. That video didn't get past the site's profanity filters.

Next, we continue the wild speculation with some thoughts on what we'd like to see to commemorate Beast Wars' Anniversary in 2016. Rather than predictions, we focus on our "wishful thinking" types of thoughts.

We've been here before, but do we want to go there again?


After that, we tackle a listener question from news crew member william-james88, which dovetails nicely with this analysis comparing the Hasbro and Unite Warriors Devastators:

william-james88 asks:
On your CW Devastator, do you have the tampographed Decepticon symbol on his knee upside down or upright? Which do you preffer? Would you have preffered it being upright when rotated to lock in the leg or would you have preferred it blank like the UW version?


We delve into some deeper mysteries, with faction symbol orientation through G1 and beyond. The seeker rabbit hole is deep, but thankfully we've got an expert here to help us out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
Is this doing it wrong?


Before getting into some end of year wrap up, we sit down for a roundtable discussion on the future of G1 reissues and their current popularity. Are G1 toys and media still in the spotlight?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
Platinum Series - our last, best hope for Reissues?


Finally, the show wraps up with some reverse bragging rights as the cast discusses the Transformers related gifts they've given, some thoughts on holiday stock levels, and a few ideas on what's going to be awesome in 2016.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
We hope so too!


A very Happy New Year to all of our listeners, we can't wait to keep bring you another great year of the show!

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your super sober host ScottyP, Megatronus, and xRotorstormx - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #133 “2015 Superlatives“ is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

We start with what rocked our 2015: toys, media, personal acquisitions... Our highlights may surprise you. But then again, you might have seen some of that big green coming.

That face says it all. No, I'm not talking about the kid.


Next, we switch up the format with a battery of listener questions:

Ionrac asks: if you were putting together a display, on a single, if large, shelf space (tall enough for Fort Max or Metroplex), how would you approach it?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
We all just want to zoom cars around cities, really.


Stuartmaximus asks: are you super excited for The Force Awakens & are you going to see it on opening day?

Seibertron.com Staff Member williamjames-88 asks: with Hasbro back in the business of reissuing G1 toys, what should they get down to reissuing in the coming years?

Daily Double: This news-post picture addresses multiple listener questions.


We interrupt our regularly scheduled program (actually, the show segue is unusually natural!) for some holiday bragging rights. What deals did the Twincast snag this holiday season? We had our eyes on the prize this time around.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
Trypticon: triple-changer AND tri-lingual. That's a good dino.


Unite Warriors Grand Galvatron is turning a few heads. The crazy assortment of Combiner Wars redecoes and retools is nutty, but is it attractive enough to buy? Listen to hear the Twincast's verdict on this set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
The comic helps, and almost makes sense!


We polish off this episode with our thoughts on the recently released Combiner Wars Combaticons. Long story short: awesome-sauce.

The latest issue of Bloomberg Business Weekly features a cover story about Hasbro getting the Disney Princess deal, which spells big money for Hasbro and a big loss for Mattel.

The cover image is an awesome picture introducing the princesses to Hasbro figures with Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime being smothered by Elsa from Frozen. We also get a quick rundown chart of how much money Transfromers made at retail in 2014, compared to other toy brands at both Hasbro and Mattel. While the Transformers brand beat Star Wars (390 M$ over 377 M$, something that is sure not to happen this year) we can see that the brand iself is still trailing behind My Little Pony, Nerf, Play-Doh and Monopoly. There is a Playskool brand as well and it is unclear where Rescue Bots would be counted in this chart.

Remember when cereal boxes had a little surprise in them? Well, this is kind of like that instead you get a free Transformers toy... using a coupon sent through the mail.

Kellogg's has teamed up with Hasbro for a special promotion. The details are written on the box pictured below. It seems each specially marked cereal box under the Kellogg's brand (like Fruit Loops) has a special code inside which can then be entered on kelloggs.ca/hasbro. You will then write your shipping address for a 15$ free toy coupon to be delivered. A maximum of 5 coupons per address are allowed. The box identifies Transformers as being one of the main toy brands which can be picked offering One Step Robots in Disguise Bumblebee as an example. Bumblebee is also featured on the front of the box as well. There are 40,000 free toy coupons available. There are also 100,000 10$ off Hasbro products coupons which can also be exchanged for the pin numbers (if the user doesn't want any of the choices available)

This offer is available to all Canadians and Canadian addresses. There is still no word whether or not a similar promotion will be happening in the US or anywhere else.
