Last week, I came across this Japanese flyer of the Transformers Movie while at a Japanese cinema.

The B5 sized movie ad has two sides. The front sports the mechanical eye from the Transformers Movie posters with “Transformer” written in Katakana. The reverse side describes the movie. At the top it reads “S. Spielberg” and Michael Bay”.

In Japan, loyalty and trust are important among consumers. Therefore, it is common practice for production companies to produce movie flyers like this so that Japanese consumers (audience members) trust that the movie will be successful.

Users can now go to Sector7.org and use the previously known passcode, fwiffo, to access some new video clips. Below are directions posted by Seibertron.com member 009 on how to access the clips:

Security Array 3 is now viewable.

The red harddrive that had the new trailer now runs something called "N.B.E. Evidence Logs" consisting of two short videos featuring CGI G1 Transformers in alternate modes running amok. The first video features the Dinobot Commander GRIMLOCK, the second features an unknown Transformer and the 3rd features the Insecticon KICKBACK.

Two of the three harddrive to the right are now open. The top one has the trailer, the second shows a bit of "Operation Seek and Destroy" which is more of those surveillance videos from the site's first incarnation, and the third is still closed.

Comic Book Resources has posted an interesting bit of information regarding the Transformers on their website. Here's what they posted at http://www.comicbookresources.com/columns/?column=13:

Rich Johnston at Comic Book Resources posted:
"Transformers 2" is being prepped for 2009, as is a new cartoon series to spin off the upcoming movie.

The reason given to licensors as to why the robots look so different in the film is so that hardcore fans will stay loyal and keep buying the old toys, which they're relaunching, even if they hate the new movie.

Licensing has explicitly stated that companies doing merchandising have to avoid doing anything too similar to the original Transformers line, so as not to mix the two separate and profitable properties.


This possibility has been discussed several times on Seibertron.com's forums in the past. It has been stated that a possible reason for the radical departure of the movie robots was to protect the look and designs of the classic Transformers characters. This could also be a way to make sure that there is no confusion regarding licensing during the times that Hasbro is not sharing profits with Paramount. It was revealed at BotCon 2006 that Hasbro would be sharing profits with Paramount for an unknown period of time surrounding the release of this summer's Transformers Movie.

We will consider a lot of this as speculation until we hear something official from the powers-that-be at Hasbro.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

British gadget and novelty company Thumbs Up are celebrating as they have been secured the licence to produce Transformers the Movie light-up t-shirts, USB gadgets and Wheelie Glider shoe wheel attachments.

Set to hit the shops several weeks before the film’s launch in July, Thumbs Up’s licensed products feature logos and characters from the Transformers film, including the iconic Autobot and Decepticon insignias. These have graced t-shirts since Transformers debuted the first time around in the 1980s, but they’ve never been seen quite like this, as a light-up panel now brings these new t-shirts to illuminated life!

Speaking about the licence, Thumbs Up’s Business Development Director, Wojtek Kolan said: "We were delighted that Hasbro awarded us the ‘Transformers the Movie’ licence for our products. They were impressed with our unique and innovative technology and cutting edge designs. When we showed them the concepts, they were amazed!

"The team at Thumbs Up are very excited about the next few years, as we are set to take a revolutionary position in the gadget sector! Several major retail chains have already signed up to stock our Transformers lines, which will offer several unique selling points when compared to typical licensed items."

The Transformers products from Thumbs Up are set to be huge and are already causing a stir! When representatives of Thumbs Up attended a recent preview screening of footage from the movie wearing the light-up t-shirts, they couldn’t have got more attention, with journalists and Transformers fans alike asking about them.

The Thumbs Up office also received a flood of enquires about the t-shirts after this first public debut. Everyone wanted to know where they could buy them, and Empire magazine even put out a request on their website which said: "To the people in the light-up Transformers T-shirts: Where did you get those? We want them. Please email us."
