After TV Loonland sold the rights of it's "Hasbro Classics Library", which includes the media rights over the original Transformers show as well as other Sunbow produced shows like G.I. Joe and Jem, earlier this week. TV Loonland has announced on their site that the company has made another sale. This time they have sold their majority shareholding over Metrodome Group plc. The following has been taken directly from their site's Press Release.

Munich / London, 16th May 2008 - TV-Loonland AG is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the sale process of its shareholding in Metrodome Group plc, its UK subsidiary quoted on AIM.

The deal has seen MediaPro Management SA of Bucharest, Romania, initially purchasing a 50.1% stake in Metrodome Group plc from TV-Loonland AG's existing 61.7% holding in Metrodome at a price of 2.62 pence per share. The deal values TV-Loonland AG's entire stake at approximately £2.0m (ca. €2.5 Mio.).

In accordance with Rule 9 of the UK Takeover Code, MediaPro Management SA has today also announced a mandatory public offer at 2.62 pence per share for all the outstanding shares of Metrodome.

This mandatory public offer will run for a period of 21 days, following which, TV-Loonland AG's remaining 11.6% shareholding will either be acquired by MediaPro Management SA at the same price as the public offer, or sold in the market depending on the level of acceptances from the offer.

Simon Flamank, CEO of TV-Loonland AG, commented "The effect of this transaction coupled to the earlier announcement this week about the sale of the Hasbro Library back to Hasbro has enabled the group to repay all of its remaining €5m of bank debt and therefore become a debt free business for the first time in the past seven years, which was always our first objective."

"We will now consider further the various alternative scenarios which may exist for the remaining core children's animation business and in particular the new properties that we have been developing."

"The conclusion of the sale process of Metrodome Group plc will also bring to an end my involvement as Chairman of that company, which has covered the past two years. Following the corporate and financial restructuring of the company that we undertook in the autumn of 2006 the company has increased its revenues in 2007 by some 66.7%, and over the last two years has acquired distribution rights for four Oscar nominated films, including one winner for Best Foreign Language Film, THE COUNTERFEITERS."

"We are delighted with MediaPro's involvement now in Metrodome and wish both parties every success for the future".

Forbes.com (of all sites) recently posted a list of fictional vehicles from movies, cartoons and other origins and placed rank on them based on their capabilities.

Topping the list is Transformers own Autobot Blurr,

with a listed speed of 800 mph. Second place went to the Mach 5 of Speed Racer fame

(both the cartoon and newly released movie) running at 258 mph and third and fourth places going to the Batmoblie from Batman Begins (Starring Christian Bale) and Dom's Charger from the Fast and the Furious (Vin Diesel) both clocking in at 220 mph.



A couple honorable mentions added to the list: Doc Brown's DeLorean

from the Back to the Future Movies going up to 190 mph on the ground and and the man powered Flinstone mobile burning up the roads at 11 mph downhill.

Hasbro Buys Media Licences From TV Loonland

Transformers News: Hasbro Buys Media Licences From TV Loonland

TV Loonland has broken the news on their website that they have sold their media licences for many of the classic cartoon series in their "Hasbro Classics Library", including the original Transformers and G.I. Joe series, to none other than Hasbro themselves for the sum of 7 million US Dollars. In 2000 TV loonland had bought Sunbow productions who together with Sony owned the media rights of the cartoon show for many of the territories outside of the United States. The article does state that TV Loonland will continue to work with Hasbro in regards to these propoties in the future.

"As we deliver new immersive entertainment experiences to audiences worldwide, it was extremely important that we had the rights to fully control the usage of our intellectual properties. Entertainment is becoming increasingly important in helping us to strengthen and build our brands globally, and this will enable us to engage consumers in new and exciting ways".

Supplemental:
To answer some questions, If the article on the TV Loonland site is correct, this deal is ONLY for the so called "Hasbro Classic Library". This would mean only shows like G1 Transformers, G.I. Joe, Jem, Inhumanoids and so forth. This might also include G2, since it is basically a reworked G1 show. But this DOES NOT include the japanese series, Scramble City, HeadMasters, MasterForce, Victory or Zone. Neither does that mean any other Transformers series.

The TV Loonland also only covers territories outside of the US, like the UK, europe and South America. The media licence for release in the US still belongs to Sony as far as we know.

The only real change with the shifting of ownership of these rights is that TV Loonland will now most likely act a middleman between Hasbro and companies like Metrodome, who actually produce the titles. The consumer should not be effected by this change.

Cartoon Network To Air Transformers Animated Episode "Garbage In, Garbage Out"--10:30AM

The weekly update-- this week's episode has some interesting appeal to it for many of us older fans.

Alfred Matthew 'WEIRD AL' Yankovic, of "Dare to be Stupid" fame, guest stars with the crew on TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED this morning at 10:30 AM. Weird Al will bring to life the good-intentioned Wreck-Gar to try to help the Autobots with their Decepticon problems.

Why does this appeal to transfans you might ask besides the introduction of an odd, new character? Weird Al's song, "Dare to be Stupid" was the music used in the 1986 Transformers Movie during the exciting introduction of the Autobots to Wreck-Gar and the Junkions. While Weird Al never voiced the character previously, apparently some powers that be saw it as an interesting connection and went with it, since Weird Al already had ties to Cartoon Network, and Transformers.

And of course, besides the fame to TF fans worldwide due to the movie, Weird Al also has many infamous parody songs such as 'Eat It', 'Ebay', and 'The Saga Begins', as well as his own movie "UHF". Weird Al also voices Squid Hat on Cartoon Network's 'The Grim Stories of Billy And Mandy'.

If you miss the bots and Weird Al today, check it out tomorrow, on Mother's Day--after pampering mom of course-- at 11:00 AM Eastern on Cartoon Network.

Also, of note, TF Animated returns on weekday AMs airing repeats of previous episodes, with 'Nanosec' on Monday at 6:00AM Eastern. Fear not, they are still continuing with new episodes on the weekends with next weekend airing 'Velocity', and then the following weekend scheduled to play 'Rise of the Constructicons'. Check out the Cartoon Network schedule.

ENJOY... with mom's permission of course!

More information about the Transformers: Animated cartoon series being brought to Germany has surfaced. Hudemx of the-transformers.info reports that he received an email from Paramount Deutschland stating that a TFA DVD will hit the German market in August.

All the information posted about the possible release is in German, and it appears that no other information regarding the DVD is present. We can only assume, at this time, that the DVD released will most likely be the three episode release that the US is due to receive later this year.

The good news about this is that this could be a sign that more markets in Europe and the surrounding area may be getting the same TF Animated treatment soon. We'll keep you posted on events as they happen.
