"The universe is our hunting ground." Generally speaking, even the most evil minicon robots are more light hearted then their larger cousins, the Autobots and Decepticons. But not these guys. Everywhere they go, they move as if with some dire purpose, their glowing eyes scanning the landscape for potential prey. These robots live to hunt, and are always on the prowl, no matter what their actual mission is.

Ryan has just posted 3 new galleries for the Classics Toy Section. This time were getting more Minicons, and they happen to be the Predator attack Team. The Decepticon team is made up of 3 members and their names are Snarl, Overbite and Dreadwing.

HASBRO ROLLS OUT TRANSFORMERS TOYS THAT ARE ‘MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE’
FOR THIS SUMMER’S MUCH ANTICIPATED BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE


Hasbro teams up with DreamWorks and Paramount for first-ever live-action TRANSFORMERS feature film release on July 4, 2007

Pawtucket, RI (February 2007) - On July 4, 2007, the colossal battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS will invade our world when these aliens make Earth their final battleground in the live-action TRANSFORMERS movie. Produced by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, the film is poised to catapult the legendary characters and storyline -- which have captivated kids since they debuted more than 20 years ago -- even higher into the stratosphere of pop culture.

First introduced in 1984 by Hasbro and Takara as a toy line, TRANSFORMERS has become a global phenomenon inspiring comic books, video games, animated series, films and a convention dedicated to TRANSFORMERS collectors. Whether fans grew up with the robots or discovered them more recently, they continue to be fascinated by the alien robots from CYBERTRON that live on earth as "Robots in Disguise" and have the ability to change from robot mode to vehicle mode.

The movie, directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock, Bad Boys I and II) and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, follows the epic feud between the AUTOBOTS (led by OPTIMUS PRIME) and the DECEPTICONS (led by MEGATRON) as they bring their battle to Earth. In their efforts to help the humans, the AUTOBOTS meet up with an unsuspecting teen (Shia LaBeouf, who starred in Holes and Even Stevens) who finds himself in the middle of an intergalactic war being fought on our planet. The movie also stars Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas), Tyrese Gibson (Annapolis, 2 Fast 2 Furious), Megan Fox (Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen), John Turturro and Jon Voight.

"Hasbro is thrilled to work with DreamWorks, Paramount and Michael Bay in making the most amazing, larger-than-life version of the TRANSFORMERS saga ever created," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive Producer of the film. "Michael, Steven and the production crew have captured the personality of the TRANSFORMERS characters through ground-breaking visual effects and they have translated the storyline into a film packed with non-stop action and excitement."

To bring the action and adventure into kids’ homes, Hasbro will be releasing a new lineup of toys and games based on the characters and styling of the movie. From the OPTIMUS PRIME VOICE CHANGER HELMET to the ULTIMATE BUMBLEBEE figure, TRANSFORMERS fans of all ages will find something that will help them experience the excitement of the movie.

The TRANSFORMERS 2007 line includes the following:

TRANSFORMERS MOVIE ULTIMATE BUMBLEBEE
(Approximate Retail Price: $89.99; Ages: 5 & up; Available: Fall 2007)
Fans of TRANSFORMERS will love seeing BUMBLEBEE come to life on the big screen and this fall, they can experience the ULTIMATE BUMBLEBEE action figure, which is among the most realistic and technical TRANSFORMERS toys ever. The impressively styled Chevrolet Camaro Concept car changes into the beloved AUTOBOTS character, which stands an imposing 14 inches tall. BUMBLEE will "come to life" with robot animatronics action in both car and robot modes. Working headlights, battle sounds, and music, including Devo’s "Whip It", all add to the interactive experience.

Each figure also includes other action features like firing projectiles. Movie-styled figures in the Deluxe and Voyager scales include: OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, SCORPONOCK™, BARRICADE™, AUTOBOT JAZZ and BUMBLEBEE™.

TRANSFORMERS MOVIE LEADER assortment
(Approximate Retail Price: $39.99; Ages: 5 & up; Available: June 2007)

    Possible spoilers of new products to be revealed at this weekends Toy Fair are already showing up. Such an example would be MSNBC.com. Apparently, the creators of the "Air Hogs" RC toy line are developing an RC toy that transforms from a Helicopter to a robot. To this point, not much is known about it, but stay tuned to Seibertron.com as we continue to provide 24 hour coverage of Toy Fair this weekend.
    :
    NEW YORK - When Spin Master Ltd. started peddling its Air Hogs Zero Gravity vehicle two years ago, retailers doubted whether parents would be willing topay $59.99 for a radio-controlled toy — even if it climbed walls. But the item ended up being a hit and was followed by the equally popular $79.99 Storm Launcher. This year, Spin Master is pushing a $110 Robo Copter that transforms from a robot to a helicopter.

    “This just proved to us that if it is a great toy, provides a wow and introduces new functions, consumers are willing to spend the money,” said Harold Chizick, vice president of global promotional marketing for the Toronto-based toy maker. “We just decided to step it up.”

    “This game is about better quality,” said Ronald D. Boire, president of Toys “R” Us’s U.S. toy business. “It is not about plastic by the pound. We have been playing plastic by the pound for way too long.” He said Toys “R” Us will be making a bigger push to carry higher-grade toys.

    “When we have great toys, the consumer comes back to the toy department,” he said. “Can the toy industry and other industries co-exist? Absolutely. Consumers will buy what the child wants.”


    EDIT: An image of this new toy has appeared on-line at Fresnobee.com:

    Jack from Tformers was kind enough to drop us a line letting us know that they have a new and very large pictuer of the Transfromers Movie Optimus Prime Voice Changer. If this helmet is as well received by Transformers fans as the Darth Vader Voice Changer was by the Star Wars fans, then this is sure to be a fan favorite item for a very long time to come.

    No word yet as to what the voice changer actually sounds like, but be sure of this; as soon as a audio clip is available you'll hear it first here on Seibertron.com!
