the hollywood reporter wrote:Hasbro will unveil a 'Prime Wars Trilogy' epic tale, with the 'Titans Return' arc featuring Sentinel Prime.
In a rare move for the toy world, Hasbro is uniting its Transformers toys, media partners and storytelling to form a multiyear epic tale, titled the Prime Wars Trilogy.
Prime Wars will provide a framework for Transformers storytelling across multiple mediums and consumer products for the next three to four years. The move follows similar steps being taken by Hasbro and Paramount Pictures to formulate a plan for a cohesive cinematic universe that unfolds over the next 10 years.
"We decided to initiate the creation of a bigger deeper worlds," said David Erwin who heads Hasbro’s Transformers story team. "The fan reaction was really good. And that’s when we decided we wanted to make this a trilogy and really make this immersive. And when we say immersive, that means to create that experience across all different platforms, to take it across everything that we do."
Currently, the comics, Machinima digital series and Activision video games are in the middle of a storyline titled The Combiner Wars. That will wrap up sometime in time in summer 2016 to be followed by a chapter titled "Titans Return" in the fall.
That storyline will feature the biggest Transformers robots in existence, fan-favorite Sentinel Prime and the return of a beloved action feature from the '80s: robots that convert into heads for bigger robots. It will play out across the entire Transformers Generations toyline and in IDW Publishing’s line of comics, as well as digital gaming.
Following "Titans Return," the trilogy will conclude in late 2017 or early 2018 with the third chapter.
Erwin is now heading a war room of storytellers that are mapping out the arc of the trilogy. Much of the heavy lifting will be done by IDW’s comics.
The company’s two Transformers comics are among its best-sellers and a third title is on the way.
Among the new aspects being highlighted are female Transformers such as Windblade and Victorion.
"Our demo for our readership is incredibly diverse but it’s pretty close to being half men and half women," said Transformers writer John Barber of IDW.
Richard Sellers Productions; 10-4-15 TRANSFORMERS HASBRO TOYS New Transformers project wrapped up! I'd received an e-mail from a Senior Designer at Hasbro Toys working on electronic Transformers toys.
They needed a character voice and original sound effects for a new toy! " Decepticons Attack!"
The project entailed creating a character voice for a Decepticon ( A G1 bad guy. If you're a Transformers fan, think "sniveling sycophant with delusions of glory!" Sound familiar? Rick Sellers will be voicing the character based on the original G1 voice actor.
The new talking electronic toy is based on Hasbro's latest iteration of the TF franchise, the very popular Transformers animated series"Robots in Disguise".The animated children's television show airing on The Cartoon Network.
We began the new project just days ago 9-23-15 at Creekside Audio Recording Studios,working with Wes McCraw the chief engineer and owner of Creekside Audio to record, edit, and create all the audio including the voice and sound effects for the toy.
Friday 10-2-15 marked the completion of the production. All the audio files have been sent off to Hasbro! I received a brief e-mail from Hasbro "The files sound GREAT!"
Thank you Sean, Wes,Lisa, Leo and Brando
And of course Chris Latta!
