HASBRO DELIVERS THE HOTTEST SPECIAL EDITION TOYS AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON, FEATURING TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, MY LITTLE PONY AND MORE


PAWTUCKET, R.I. (June 26, 2012) —In what has become a highly anticipated annual tradition, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) is coming to Comic-Con International in San Diego, California, with an array of special edition action figures and toys that are set to be some of the hottest items available at the show. This year, the special edition figures are drawn from the lore of some of Hasbro’s most popular brands, as well as eagerly anticipated movies, animated series and video games.

The special edition items will be available at the HasbroToyShop booth (#3329) at Comic-Con International starting on Preview Night, July 11th (while supplies last), as well as in very limited quantities after the show at HasbroToyShop.com. Highlights of the range of special edition toys include a one-of-a-kind chance to own JAR JAR BINKS from the STAR WARS films encased in Carbonite, a huge TRANSFORMERS DECEPTICON ‘Combiner’ figure based on the hotly anticipated video game TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON, a fan-favorite Pony character from the hit Hasbro Studios produced TV series My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and even a massive vehicle from MARVEL’s THE AVENGERS franchise!

“The Hasbro brand and design teams greatly enjoy conceptualizing and developing the highly sought after special edition figures for Comic-Con year over year,” said John Frascotti, chief marketing officer, Hasbro. “Each Hasbro item features a fan favorite character or other nod to the most passionate fan bases of our brands and product lines that don’t exist in the more widely available main line. We have a lot of fun developing these toys and are thrilled to be able to provide fans unique expressions of their favorite pop-culture properties.”

The comprehensive list of Hasbro’s 2012 San Diego Comic-Con special edition items features:

JOE Comic-Con special edition figure, Hasbro will be releasing two 3.75” movie likeness versions of the fan-favorite ninja.

Oh yes, who's ready for a new line up of Seekers? I know I am. Thanks to Seibertron.com News Crew member DevastaTTor, We have our first look at Transformers Generations Deluxe, Fall of Cybertron Starscream! This guy heavily resembles his War for Cybertron appearance. The indication is that he will be released Spring 2013. DevastaTTor adds:
Before a huge crowd for the Hasbro/Takara Tomy Brand Development and Product Panel Discussion, Hasbro revealed the first Generations figure to be released as part of wave 1 in 2013: deluxe class Starscream.

Transformers Global Brand Director, Jerry Jiovin, also teased the crowed a little with the potential for the release of FOC Grimlock. When asked by a member of the crowd if we'd see him in the same wave, he sheepishly grinned and answered " Stay tuned..."

Just a quick reminder, Alex Irvine's Transformers: Exiles was released today.

Product Description
The epic battles between Optimus Prime and Megatron have long thrilled Transformers fans. But these two giants weren’t always great leaders and bitter foes. This new novel continues the electrifying saga that started with Transformers: Exodus, unveiling the origins of the conflict—the explosive events that unfolded before Optimus and Megatron arrived Earthside, forever altering the destiny of their kind.



Alex Irvine (Author)

Image



Once allies, Optimus and Megatron are now enemies in a civil war. To prevent Cybertron from falling into Megatron’s hands, Optimus jettisons the planet’s heart, the AllSpark, into space, then sets out to find it with Megatron hot on his heels. Optimus is determined to defeat Megatron, bring the AllSpark home, and restore Cybertron to its former glory.

But a saboteur lurks aboard Optimus’s spaceship, and ahead lie lost colonies, some of them hostile. Optimus needs help of the highest caliber, but from whom? Heroes such as Solus, Nexus, and Vector Prime are just names from make-believe stories of long ago. Or are they? Maybe it’s time for Optimus Prime to find out. Maybe it’s the only chance he has to vanquish mighty Megatron.

About the Author
Alex Irvine is the author of Transformers: Exodus, as well as the novels Buyout, The Narrows, and A Scattering of Jades, and the novelization of the film Iron Man 2. He also is the author of nonfiction books including The Vertigo Encyclopedia and John Winchester’s Journal, as well as the comic series Daredevil Noir and Hellstorm, Son of Satan: Equinox.

Every few days we'll be bringing you some cool Transformers eBay auctions that are worth taking a look at. If you have eBay Transformers auctions, please post them here in our Carbombya Buy/Sell/Trade forum. We'll take a look there first to see if you've got something cool posted that should be featured on Seibertron.com. Check back in 2 to 3 days for some more featured Transformers items from eBay.

All of today's featured auctions are unique items straight from Seibertron.com. I'm gearing up for my wedding, which is later this year, so it's time for these special items to find new homes. Enjoy!

Featured Auction #1 from Seibertron.com

Transformers ARMADA IP Creative BIBLE from 2001

Image

This auction is for the Transformers ARMADA IP CREATIVE BIBLE. I received this item via the mail from an anonymous fan of Seibertron.com a few years ago. I forgot that I had this until recently when I was going through a box I had in my basement that I hadn't opened from when I moved back in 2008. Now engaged, I thought I'd save this item for when I have a massive blowout of extra stuff to help pay for wedding expenses. This "bible" was published on October 29th, 2001 (about 9 months prior to Hasbro's release of Transformers Armada). It is 56 pages long which includes the cover which I believe features unique artwork. There is also an additional set of paperwork included with this which includes 27 black-and-white "product" pages that feature product shots, "animated" (box) artwork from Dreamwave (months before their first comic hit the stands), and artwork from Aeon (the cartoon's primary animation company). Read more about this special item here.


Featured eBay Auction #2 from Seibertron.com

Hasbro AUTOGRAPHED 25th anniversary Optimus Prime MISB

Image

This auction is for a unique one-of-a-kind item that I received as a gift from Hasbro in early 2009. This item is a MISB 25th Anniversary Optimus Prime reissue in Transformers Universe packaging. The front window of the packaging is autographed by the 2008 (early 2009???) Transformers Brand Team from Hasbro. This item is really special to me. It bums me out that I have to part with it but I need help paying for my upcoming wedding so it's got to go. Hopefully whoever wins this auction will appreciate how unique and special this item is to die-hard Transformers collectors as much as I did.

Other than one signature on the window that I can't decipher, I believe all of the other autographs belong to the following people ...

Bill Rawley (Senior Designer)
Jared Wade (Design Director)
Eric Siebenaler (Lead Designer)
Vickie Stratford (Senior Design Project Manager)
Joe Kyde (Retail Exclusive Product Deco artist)
Mike Ballog (Brand Manager)
Aaron Archer (Senior Design Director)
Greg Lombardo (Senior Director of Marketing)

Featured Auction #3 from Seibertron.com

BEAST WARS Transformers PRESS KIT 1996 from Alliance

Image

This auction is for a BEAST WARS Transformers PRESS KIT (Press Release) from Alliance. The press release is dated "May 27th, 1996" and is 13 pages long (including the "cover" page). The contents are as follows:

Page 1: cover page
Page 2: May 27th press release from Alliance titled "Beast Wars series premieres with winning ratings in U.S."
Page 3-4: About the CGI Animation
Page 5: About the Story
Page 6: About the Characters (Optimus Primal is listed as a gray / purple humanoid w/ giant bat wings)
Page 7-8: pages about Christopher Brough (BW Executive Producer and President of Mainframe Entertainment, Inc)
Page 9: page about Ian Pearson (BW Executive Producer)
Page 10: page about Stephane Reichel (BW Executive Producer)
Page 11: page about Steven Denure (BW Executive Producer)
Page 12-13: pages about Jonathan Goodwill (BW Producer)

I don't remember how I got my hands on this. I can't remember if they were handing them out at Botcon 1996 or if I received it directly from Mainframe for my old "Trans-Forum" newsletter (the precursor to Seibertron.com that was published from 1996 to 1999). Some of the edges of the paper have started to yellow and the staple is getting a little loose that holds the pages together.


Featured Auction #4 from Seibertron.com

Seibertron.com T-SHIRT TSHIRT Purple logo version XL

Image

This auction is for an official XL Seibertron.com T-SHIRT. It is a black t-shirt with the Seibertron.com logo over the planet Cybertron. The logo is white over a purple planet Cybertron. This is the perfect chance for you to buy your shirt to show your support at BotCon 2010. Speaking of which, the annual Saturday Night party just happens to fall on Seibertron.com's 10th anniversary on June 26th. The photos in this auction are examples of the item that you are bidding on.

7 XXL shirts and 1 XXXL shirt are also available.

We just wet your pallet with pictures of the Fans Projects sneak peaks of "Rodimus Prime" and what is obviously some sort of "Springer" upgrade kit. We now know that "Springer" will be a completely new triple-changing mold. Expect images of that soon!


Now we bring you pictures of the comic offered in the FPCC instruction booklet. There are no words to this story but from this Mods perspective it goes a little something like this:

Page 1

A very cybertron mode looking Commander is driving out of a fortress. Overhead we see a shot of a helicopter transform in a very familiar way, with visible wheels in robot mode legs. As we see a close up of the face we see a flashback scene of Starscream holding what looks to be Arcee at gunpoint. Starscream shows an images of the energon cubes that are being transported by Commander.
