"MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE" Merchandise Invades Stores Worldwide in Anticipation of This Summer's Live-Action TRANSFORMERS Movie

Wide range of TRANSFORMERS toys, games and consumer products arrive at retail on June 2, 2007

PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 31, 2007--This summer, Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) Inc.'s legendary TRANSFORMERS robots "star" in their first-ever live-action feature film, produced by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures. While TRANSFORMERS fans will have to wait until July 4 to see the movie, they can start to experience the expanded world of TRANSFORMERS on Saturday, June 2 when Hasbro and its more than 225 licensees launch hundreds of new TRANSFORMERS toys, games, and consumer products at stores nationwide.

The TRANSFORMERS movie line, which can currently be previewed at www.transformers.com, includes, of course, a legion of new action figures featuring the robots from the movies and an awesome voice changer helmet, in addition to products from leading companies such as Activision, HarperCollins, Random House and Extreme Concepts.

"Together with our licensees, Hasbro has created a wide range of innovative toys, games and consumer products that truly deliver on the brand's 'MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE' essence, " said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's Chief Operating Officer and Executive Producer on the film. "The full line of merchandise will be enjoyed by both our long-time fans who have loved TRANSFORMERS for more than 20 years as well as the new fans who are just now discovering the franchise through this summer's most anticipated movie."

TRANSFORMERS is directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock, Bad Boys I and II) and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. In their efforts to help the humans, the AUTOBOTS meet up with an unsuspecting teen, played by Shia LaBeouf (Disturbia, Holes and Even Stevens), who finds himself in the middle of an intergalactic war being waged 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.

Transformers:The Movie (1986) - Shhh... Don't Swear!

Seibertron.com member, Nick Kubasak, has brought to our attention that IFC.com is highlighting movies with notable swearing. Ironically, The Transformers: The Movie(1986) made the list!

IFC.com had this to say:
If the creators of "The Transformers: The Movie" set out to traumatize a generation of children, mission accomplished. The old "Transformers" cartoon show is remembered as a genial half-hour toy commercial where good robots that turned into cars fought bad robots that turned into guns or planes or boom boxes (it was the 80s) in a series of low stakes laser battles.

"The Transformers: The Movie," on the other hand, showcased the brutal deaths of half its cast, including beloved Autobot Optimus Prime, who was savagely cut down in the film's first reel to make way for a new generation of heroes (i.e. toys). The addition of (to be fair, minimal) cursing to the robots' vocabulary was just the shit icing on the urinal cake; all that was missing was a weird robot-on-robot sex scene. There's no way Michael Bay's upcoming live action version could ever be half as dark, disturbing, and adult than this crazy little cartoon.
