FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


HASBRO UNVEILS TRANSFORMERS TOYS THAT ARE ‘MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE’ FOR THIS SUMMER’S MUCH ANTICIPATED BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE

Toys created for the DreamWorks and Paramount live action TRANSFORMERS feature film that invades theatres nationwide on July 4, 2007



Pawtucket, RI (April 27, 2007) - The wait is over! On Friday morning, April 27, 2007, TRANSFORMERS fans will finally be able to check out the first wave of movie-based toys and action figures associated with this summer’s much-anticipated live-action blockbuster based on the legendary “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE”. Fans visiting www.transformers.com will have a chance to preview the movie versions of such favorite characters as OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SCORPONOK and BRAWL.

Beyond seeing the debut of the first-wave of the movie-based action figures, the site will feature daily updates with new product unveils (including licensed items and retailer exclusives), links to the film’s promotional partners such as PepsiCo, and — in the near future — games, screensavers and wallpapers.

The toys and all TRANSFORMERS movie-based products will go on sale nationwide on Saturday, June 2, 2007.

Then one month later, the colossal battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS will invade our world when these aliens make Earth their final battleground in the first-ever live-action TRANSFORMERS movie which hits theaters nationwide on July 4, 2007. Produced by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, the film is poised to catapult the legendary characters and storyline -- which have captivated kids since they debuted more than 20 years ago -- even higher into the stratosphere of pop culture.

The movie, directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock, Bad Boys I and II) and executive produced by Stephen Spielberg, follows the epic feud between the AUTOBOTS (led by OPTIMUS PRIME) and the DECEPTICONS (led by MEGATRON) as they bring their battle to Earth. In their efforts to help the humans, the AUTOBOTS meet up with an unsuspecting teen (Shia LaBeouf, who is currently starring in Disturbia,, and has also starred in Holes and Evens Stevens) who finds himself in the middle of an intergalactic war being fought 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.

For the past couple of weeks, eager fans have been having a difficult time trying to purchase Megatron. The problem all started when the figure was announced as a Japan exclusive and has snowballed from there.

Modified orange gun barrels; online retail shortages; and inflated prices have only been the beginning.

Now, to make matters worse- eBay has pulled the plug on all MP Megatron auctions. It is unclear if this is a permit decision. eBay has not made an public comment about the matter. However, looking at eBay's rules it looks rather grim that eager Transformers Fans will get the Masterpiece that they have been begging for.

eBay Rules for Toy Guns
BB Guns, Replicas, Blank Guns and Imitation Guns
Prohibited

BB guns, air guns, black powder guns or muzzle-loader guns

Listings that use the term “BB gun” in the item title or description of any listing for an airsoft or replica gun.

Permitted

Paintball guns, "airsoft" guns*, pellet guns, replica, "look-alike," and imitation firearms under certain circumstances. These items:

Must have clear markings permanently affixed to them (commonly blaze orange markings on the barrel or a blaze orange plug inserted into the barrel)

Must not be readily convertible to shoot a lethal projectile

Must be located in the U.S. and the seller must be located in the U.S.

These rules apply to all items designed to look like firearms, including replicas/imitation guns of any age, as well as toy and cap guns.

Note: Most states require that purchasers of airsoft guns be 18 years of age or older.


Please note that any photos in a listing (including stock photos) must also abide by our Firearms, Weapons and Knives policy. If a prohibited item is included in a photograph for a non-prohibited item, the listing may be ended.
