After a long hard day of work or play on Wednesdays, I like to go and check out what's new at my local comic shop. Sure there was Movie Adaptation #2 (No TARGET 2006)...but when I scanned the magazines, there was a new Toyfare with Robovision Optimus Prime on the cover (#120 August 2007)!


So what's in this 'Transformers Issue':

*First of all, it's dubbed 'The Transformers Collector's Edition"
*Comparison of Optimus Prime's toy alt modes (G1 to movie)
*A live action movie article...
*A review of the new TF game...
*A smattering of some general movie merchandise that will be available, or is available (think bed sheets, etc.)
*An article about the Animated movie
*Discussion of Avengers/Transformers (due out next month)
*An article about Japanese toys that make us cry, so to speak...
*A CLASSICS visual price guide
*Pictures of SDCC exclusives including Alt Rodimus, Titanium Menasor, Star Wars McQuarrie ObiWan and Yoda, and Pimp Daddy Destro(s)...
*And finally a 'complete' Transformers price guide

You might ask yourself, why is this news? The answer is because this a great issue for all Transformers toy fans to own, and I wanted to make sure that folks were aware it was out there, and that they should pick it up!

Seibertron member Starscream has brought to our attention an interesting eBay auction for a variant of the 'Legends' class Ratchet figure from this summer's Transformers Movie.

The original Ratchet figure was painted in a bright, neon green while the one in this auction is a more subdued tone of greenish-yellow, more accurate to colours of the actual vehicle used in the film.

Toy manufacturers are betting on a good year for sales with summer movies to help promote their toys. With so many action packed movies like Spiderman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Fantastic Four, and Transformers- what will be the most popular toy?

Sheliah Gilliland of Internet toy retailer EToys.com is betting on Transformers.

"Transformers will be the biggest seller — it's a movie based on a line of toys that has been popular since the '80s," she said. "They have always been strong sellers but, because of the movie, they are coming back in a huge way."

With so many sequels, toy manufacturers — as well as the studios — must up the ante to outdo the previous offering.

Transformers are considered the ultimate boy toys that could also be a hit with dads who played with them when they were young.

Hasbro has come out with an updated line, including the Optimist Prime truck that transforms into a blaster with one pull of a handle. The company will release a new video game in time for Father's Day.

In this summer's toy war, Hasbro, may have the most to lose.

Hasbro holds the master toy license to three Marvel comic-book movies being released this summer, "Spider-Man 3," "Transformers" and "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer." That means the manufacturer will essentially be competing against itself in the toy aisle.

But having toy lines for three summer blockbusters may not be a walk in the park for Hasbro.

Lots of movies do not translate to strong toy sales, said Gerrick L. Johnson, an analyst with BMO Capital Markets Corp.

"We think this [Marvel licensing] deal will be a profitable one for Hasbro; we also think it is expensive and risky," he wrote in a recent report.

The company needs $1 billion in Marvel-related sales over the next five years to make a profit on the licenses, he said. "That is a lot of toys and our concern is that interest in super-hero-related movies and toys will begin to wane."

Hasbro is confident it will gain from its Transformers brand and has signed deals with 230 licensees worldwide for T-shirts, bedding, cellphones and shoes.

"It's much more about total enterprise for us," said Brian Goldner, chief executive of Hasbro. "We know we have created a great array of products for kids and collectors."
