Hasbro has released their second quarter profit and sadly it is down. However, it has nothing to do with Transformers. Hasbro has reported strong sales of Transformers and Spider-Man toys. The company has also reported that they sold 240 licensees for products related to the Transformers Movie. Despite this the profit margin was hurt due to one-time costs and a recall of Easy Bake Ovens. To read the full report got to Yahoo.com.

"Just an FYI to all board members, Target is doing their fall reset for Toys THE WEEK OF AUGUST 5TH. Ultimate Bumblebee will be featured on an endcap beginning that week as well.

So I was browsing at the new planogram for boys action and saw something interesting. An item on the planogram has a DPCI of 087-06-0413 and the description in the line listing was "Transformers G1". This is the old DPCI for the 6-inch titaniums and the product image picture (a mock up to show what the aisle will look like) shows a picture of a 6-inch titanium box!

Could Titaniums make a brief comeback to Target shelves in early August? I will report back tomorrow morning after I do some more investigating at work tonight."


Anyone hoping it is true like me? We still have at least two new molds to get on the market, and many people have not seen molds all the way back to 'The Fallen'.

So this is certainly welcome news, if it is true.

Grifter Prime- "Just thought you wanted to see the back of the MP-06 Skywarp! heehee!"

Couldn't have put it better myself!




The release date of this item is coming soon (this fall!). And with Masterpiece Anime Starscream coming to Walmart around the same time, more information is sure to come soon. Keep paying attention to the Seibertron Toy News section for more updates as they come in on the extension of the Masterpiece line.

Botcon in all its celebrated overall coolness, did bring us some bad news...the DINOBOT molds are lost!

So how does one satisfy the desire to own the molds without paying the ever increasing prices for these fantastic and quite popular toys?

Glad you asked because the answer is...buy the Justitoys Smallest versions. Previous Seibretron Toy News highlighted the release of Desert Warrior (Snarl), Commander (Grimlock), and Flamethrower (Slag), and their re-colored versions.

Now Justitoys is finishing up the famous five-some by releasing Jungle Warrior (Sludge), and Mystery Figure Set (Swoop and all missile launchers).

Sludge is coming along very well, as you can see here on the Jungle Warrior Pre-Order Webpage.

Due out in the Fall, these should become a whole lot more popular with the bad news about the full-sized official versions of the molds.

Also of interest:

-More pics of the MP-05 Megatron Stock and Barrel Accessories that are set to be available in August.

-Spike and Sparkplug Diaclone driver-sized figures...see them here.

-And finally, light up Energon Cubes.

Pre-orders are still available for all items.
