Variety has reported that things are not going that great with TV Loonland recently. TV Loonland bought Sunbow Production in 2000, and thus owns much of the media rights for the original series of The Transformers for the international markets, as wel as some of the more recent incarnations of that cartoon series.

According to the article the company suffered a major blow after announcing earlier this year that they had a massive loss in profits of 20 million euro during 2006. And now the company was forced to postpone it publication of their figures of 2006 and the first quarter of 2007 due to ongoing restructuring. Including that two supervisory board members, Thomas Mayrhofer and Michael Bischoff, had already resigned. This resulted in a 27% drop in value over the company's stock, down to €0,91 per share.

The company executives have confirmed that they are already in talks with unidentified investers and a bank consortium, which might lead to selling TV Loonland. If this will happen, the future of the media branche of Transformers (which means TV broadcasts and DVD sales) on the international market, especially Europe, may end up in doubt.

Our own Salazaar has brought to our attention what could be a new Transformers Movie related Chevy commercial. Here is what he reported:

"I went to the Regal Cobblestone theatre in Sheffield, Ohio to see potc 3(excellent film!). The second I walk in to the lobby, I see Shia Labeouf's mug on a plasma tv. (I know I was late to see the entire thing, I only saw the end) It showed quite a bit of the new camaro, then it showed the "get in the car" part of the trailer. At the end, the camaro transformed into the chevy logo. I think it was more of a chevy/transformers advert."

Snack manufacturer Red Mill Snack Foods has teamed up with Hasbro to support the launch of this summer's Transformers film.

Red Mill's Transform-A-Snack is to be the exclusive snack partner of the live-action Transformers film from Dreamworks and Paramount, which is released around the globe this July.

The Steven Spielberg directed film aims to capitalise on young men's nostalgia for Transformers, a popular cartoon and toy franchise from the 1980s. The online trailer for the film has become the most downloaded movie trailer in Yahoo!'s history.

As well as being the exclusive snack partner, Transform-A-Snack will run an on-pack promotion, offering consumers the chance to win a holiday to Los Angeles, with a tour of the Paramount studios. Runner-up prizes include Xbox 360 consoles, Optimus Prime voice-changers, and other Hasbro Transformer toys.

The Transform-A-Snack range is also to be revamped to coincide with the deal. A new beef flavour will be added to the range, and from next month a Spicy flavoured multipack will be rolled out.

Pack sizes will remain the same for single bags of Transform-A-Snack - 30g retailing at 20p. Multipacks contain seven 20g bags, with one of these bags forming an introductory offer of one extra bag free. These packs have a recommended retail price of 99p.

Transform-A-Snack was first introduced by Red Mill 15 years ago and is especially popular with 8 to 13-year-olds. All snacks are baked rather than fried, and are suitable for vegetarians.

We have received an update from Delta Here is the update we were sent:

"We have SIX new sticker sets to show you over at!

2) He also makes a contribution to the G1 section with a repro set for Sonic Bomber:

3) Max H. brings you another G1 set - this time a repro set for Deluxe Autobot Whirl.

4) I myself found time to make a G1 set for Pretender Bumblebee

5) And that's not all I've done! Thanks to John Huber for some assistance, I also managed to make a small set for Alt Skids.

Use a little alcohol to get those flames off, and this set will give him the G1 stripes that his BT counterpart was blessed with:

6) Last, but not least, Justin Goguen made a brilliant recolor of last month's Piranacon set. This one is for all you God Neptune

owners who wondered why he looked so plain. This sticker set fixes that, for sure:"
