HASBRO’S TRANSFORMERS BRAND CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” 2009 TRANSFORMERS Universe and Animated Toy Lines Combine Brand’s Rich Heritage With “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” Fun for Fans of All Ages

PAWTUCKET, R.I., (February 2009) – Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) revolutionized the action figure category 25 years ago with the launch of the MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE toys known as TRANSFORMERS. And while the TRANSFORMERS brand 25th anniversary celebration reaches its zenith on June 26, 2009 with the release of the action-packed movie TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, the brand has even more excitement to offer fans beyond the new film, including its TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE and TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED toy lines.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, Hasbro is “rolling out” dozens of TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toys that showcase the innovation and depth that have been synonymous with the toy line since its inception. Featuring numerous styles and varying levels of complexity, Hasbro’s 2009 TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toy line will appeal to a growing fan base that – after 25 years – spans multiple generations. While the toy line will include popular characters kids will recognize from current and recent entertainment, the line also pays homage to the brand’s roots with many classic ‘bots from its extensive stories and unique mythology.

Of course, much of TRANSFORMERS’ popularity remains rooted in its origin: over-the-top animation that shows the ongoing feud between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS. Launched last year, Cartoon Network’s new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED series continues the animation tradition with fantastic storylines that feature favorite characters like OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE and even MEGATRON. The new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED line of toys lets kids experience the adventure in the playroom as they recreate scenes from the weekly show using a number of exciting, new action figures.

For the more mature fans who want to commemorate the 25th anniversary of TRANSFORMERS, Hasbro is expanding its popular line of MIGHTY MUGGS vinyl collectibles to include – for the first time – TRANSFORMERS characters such as OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON and several of their robotic cohorts.

First introduced in 1984 by Hasbro and Takara as a toy line, TRANSFORMERS has become a global entertainment property inspiring comic books, video games, animated series, a blockbuster movie and even a convention dedicated to TRANSFORMERS collectors. Yet its popularity remains rooted in its original premise – toys that change from robots into every imaginable kind of vehicle.

TRANSFORMERS: 25th Anniversary products available in Spring 2009

TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE 25th ANNIVERSARY FIGURES – DELUXE AND VOYAGER
Approximate Retail price: DELUXE scale $12.99; VOYAGER scale $22.99; Ages 5 & up; Available: First waves in January 2009, with additional waves released throughout spring.

The TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE 25th Anniversary line features DELUXE and VOYAGER assortments with new versions of incredibly detailed, realistically styled, but classic versions of familiar characters from the past 25 years. There will be ten new DELUXE figures including DINOBOT from the BEAST WARS series and four new VOYAGER figures including OVERLOAD from the CYBERTRON series.

TRANSFORMERS: ANIMATED products available in 2009

TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED FIGURES – DELUXE AND VOYAGER
Approximate Retail price: DELUXE scale $12.99; VOYAGER scale $22.99; Ages 5 & up; Available: First waves in January 2009, with additional waves released throughout the year.

Figures in the TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED DELUXE and VOYAGER assortment feature character conversions like those seen in the popular TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED series airing on Cartoon Network. Both assortments feature a variety of characters with exciting battle weapons and firing projectiles. Eleven characters, including BLURR and WASPINATOR, will be featured in the DELUXE LINE in 2009 while eight characters will be introduced in the VOYAGER LINE.

TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED FIGURES – ENTERTAINMENT PACK
Approximate Retail Price: $22.99; Ages 5 & up; Available: January 1, 2009.

The entertainment pack includes two deluxe-sized figures — twin brothers JETFIRE and JETSTORM — who combine to create SAFEGUARD. The brothers are the only AUTOBOTS who can fly and are the youngest Elite Guard members of all time. JETFIRE and JETSTORM will be showcased in new episodes of the Animated series debuting in Spring 2009.

Additional TRANSFORMERS products available in 2009

TRANSFORMERS MIGHTY MUGGS
(Approximate Retail Price: $12.99; Ages 6 & up; Available: First waves in January 2009, with additional waves released throughout the year)

The popular urban-style MIGHTY MUGGS line now showcases ROBOTS IN DISGUISE! Invading the world of TRANSFORMERS for the first time, MIGHTY MUGGS figures are ultra-hip vinyl collectibles that provide fun incarnations of many favorite characters from across the pop culture universe. TRANSFORMERS characters available in 2009 include OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, BUMBLEBEE and SOUNDWAVE.

Nick isn't the only one of our comic guests to be actively involved in the convention in this way. As well as taking part in the comic panels, many of our other comic guests will be doing more during the weekend...

SIMON WILLIAMS

Simon will be providing the artwork for one of the convention exclusive postcards that will be given away free to all attendees and once again, Simon will be on hand all weekend doing sketches for fans. But that's not all... Simon will also be bringing artwork for sale, prints and more besides.

ANDREW WILDMAN

Andrew will be doing the artwork for our other exclusive postcard, doing sketches for fans and bringing some original artwork for sale.

LIAM SHALLOO

Liam will be playing host to one of our comic art colouring workshops taking place during the weekend, and he will also be bringing prints with him for sale.

JASON CARDY and KAT NICHOLSON

Jason and Kat will be bringing a selection of brand new prints and badges for sale and Kat will be doing sketches for fans of Transformers Animated characters. We are also hoping that they will be involved in the convention in some other way too...

Please note that there may be charges from some of our artists for sketches and some may insist that they are personalised. We will bring you more updates on our other comic guests as we get them.


Don't forget, you can find full details about the convention and the the new Auto Assembly Shop where you can buy back issues of our convention magazine, pin badges and more on the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

The NYC Comicon was nice enough to drop by here at Seibertron.com and share a friendly reminder of an expected, rare, appearance at the Convention by early MARVEL Transformers Comic guru Bob Budiansky. Here's what they had to share:

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to drop a quick note to remind you all that Bob Budiansky will be appearing this Saturday at the NYC Comicon. Although the show is three days, Bob will only be attending on Saturday.

Bob is known as the editor and writer of most of the early issues of the Marvel Transformers comics. (To a whole other group he is known as the artist on a well remembered run of the original Ghost Rider series.) Bob very rarely makes convention appearances.

Bob will be doing sketches (for a fee) and signing for free.

I work with Bob and am not directly affiliated with the show. However more information on the show can be found at:

We look forward to seeing you there!

If any of you Seibertronians plan to attend the event, please let us know what it was like. For more information on the event, click on the NY Comic Con link above.

TFW2005- The excitement for the U.S. Toy Fair is building as HASBRO presents at other toy fairs throughout the world. We recently had a report from the Canadian Toy And Hobby Fair sharing some new information about the toys to come for the Transformers sequel.

Now streetfield1 shares many pieces of information that were revealed there about not only the movie toys, but about the movie as well.

Apparently they showed animatics of movie bots and there is huge (literally) info surrounding it. Quite a few previous rumors were confirmed. Have your salt shaker ready as you read some of the responses from the poster below.

**SPOILER ALERT** The below information contains details that may spoil parts of the movie. **Spoiler Alert**

Devastator as we all know by now is in it, but one of his movie abilities has been revealed, as well as, some very awesome toy information.

"devastor is sweet with a giant turbine sucking every thing in its path the figures of voyager class form to create 2 foot tall devastator!"


The Witwickys and An army of Frenzy like bots.
"witwicky family under attack in their household with the "dont stand on my grass"garden getting trashed and shot to pieces by mini decepticons who look like frenzy from the last movie"


Wheelie.
"wheelie is a radio control car who finds jet fire!"


Pretender Alice...
"ther's a new girl even hotter than megan fox who is a decepticon pretender""
Apparently she and Sam have quite a battle on a car. The images we saw way back in summer of a broken windshield and Frenzy-like bot puppet come to mind right away.

Action And Battles.
"they showed an awsome battle with Captain Lennox(josh duhamel) leading a squadron of helicopters to attack decepticons"


Human Alliance Toy Set.
"theres a new bumblebee toy with a human spike figure which will be first in the range"


Movie Footage.
"the transformers 2 and rise of cobra footage was not clear or hd quality and it still kicked ass!""


RPM- Robot Powered Machines.
Hot Wheels like, character engraved on the bottom of car and they race on a track around a Devastator model?

Remote Control Optimus Prime truck with Peter Cullen voice chip.

A tank version of the new Megatron toy was on display.

You can view the original thread here.


Well, as I said, if this is true it looks like Toy Fair in New York will be spectacular, and Seibertron.com will be there!
