Our own Grifter Prime has brought us some interesting news about an event that involved General Motors and Transformers. General Motors introduced upcoming Transformers Movie stars Bumblebee, Autobot Jazz, Autobot Ratchet, and Ironhide at its sixth annual "ten" pre-Oscar fashion event at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood. Here is a press release from the event:

From a press release

Live-Action Movie's 'Heroes' Attend 6th Annual GM Ten Event; DreamWorks/Paramount Film Slated to Debut July 4

LOS ANGELES – Four new movie stars – "Bumblebee," "Autobot Jazz," "Autobot Ratchet" and "Ironhide" – from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures', in association with Hasbro's, forthcoming July 4th action-adventure release, "Transformers," were introduced this evening by General Motors Corp. (NYSE: GM) as it hosted its sixth annual "ten" pre-Oscar fashion event at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood.

"Bumblebee" changes from the classic Chevrolet Camaro, and is a central character in the saga of aliens who take mechanical forms when on Earth "Autobot Jazz" converts from a Pontiac Solstice in a hardtop format. A Hummer H2, modified as a rescue vehicle, changes into "Autobot Ratchet" and "Ironhide" changes from a GMC TopKick medium-duty truck. They all star in this summer's live-action blockbuster, "Transformers," from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, which will premiere July 4.

Buzz about the roles that these vehicles play in the movie has been spreading since a quick glimpse of the new Camaro was spotted in Paramount's newest "Transformers" trailer, which began appearing in theaters on Dec. 20, 2006. This clip, which is currently the most-viewed movie trailer on Yahoo!, also contains images of the Solstice, H2 and TopKick for fans who were quick enough to have freeze-framed it.

"'Transformers' is a compelling project and offers us a global platform for marketing GM products and building our brands," said Mike Jackson, GM North America vice president, marketing and advertising. "It represents the perfect intersection of entertainment, marketing and design."

"The first time I saw the new Camaro, while touring the GM Design Center, I knew immediately that it would be the perfect 'Bumblebee,'" said Michael Bay, the film's Director. He continued, "It's got beautiful lines and a classic, timeless look. There were no other cars that came even close. I have had a great working relationship with GM for many years and am psyched to be working with them on 'Transformers.'"

Gerry Rich, President of Worldwide Marketing at Paramount Pictures, added, "We are thrilled to be working with GM on this incredible and action-packed film. Having integrated the cars as characters in the film is truly an innovative concept that will help eventize this exciting 4th of July tentpole film."

GM will roll out a fully integrated marketing and promotional effort around the film in the near future, including a major Chevrolet promotion, according to Jackson.

We reported here some time ago that Hasbro joined with Glu to produce mobile content based on Transformers. One of the things that Glu would be making is a Transformers game. Now we have some new information about the game. Glu unveiled it at the 3GSM Show in Barcelona. The game will be based on the upcoming Transformers Movie. Here is what Glu had to say about the game:

"Transformers:
Gamers must help the Autobots find hidden energy on Earth before the evil Decepticons can get it. The mobile game will launch simultaneously with the console title and the much-anticipated movie release of the live-action Transformers film. Players battle as Optimus Prime across multiple levels and transform from vehicle to robot with special weapons capabilities. Enlist the help of the other Autobots in the race to fine the Allspark – the true source of power for all the Transformers."

Ryan was again at Toyfair today and he got a look at the upcoming Transformers Monopoly game. He was able to speak with a rep from Usaopoly and get some details and see the game but wasnt able to take any pictures. So without further ado here is what Ryan told me.

Transformers monopoly:
*Based on G1 Cartoon and comics.
*Box artwork is Dreamwave #1 G1 Autobot and Decepticon cover.
*Pewter characters shown on the box were Optimus Prime and Megatron.
*Properties are planets. We are speculating that Cybetron and Earth will be used as Boardwalk and Park Place.
*Only available at specialty retailers (similar to Spencer Gifts and other RPG Shops)
*Due to be released in May.

Ryan has posted 2 amazing galleries for Toy Fair 2007. The first gallery is what we're all here for: the Hasbro Transformers Products Photogallery has 128 awesome pictures of various things from Ultimate Movie Bumblebee to Leader Class Optimus Prime! But there isn't just Movie toys there is also the next waves of Star Wars Transformers! We get detailed shots of the Death Star Darth Vader, AT-AT Walker, Republic Gunship, Saesee Tiin's jedi Starfighter, Mace Windu Jedi Starfighter, Rebel Snowspeeder and a Republic Clone Turbo Tank! It should also be pointed out that the actual Transformers Movie Toyline was on display in a seperate room but camera's were not allowed. This room had the Deluxes and Voyagers as well as the Fast Action Battlers, Cyber Slammers and a few of the Robot Heroes figures on display.

The second gallery is for all the other stuff that isn't Transformers related, but probably more then a few of us also like to collect. Hasbro Other Boy Toy Products Photogallery has 100 pictures of various Marvel, G.I.Joe, Star Wars and other Hasbro toys to look at.

So check out these awesome Toy Galleries and be sure to post what you thiank about all of these great new cool toys that will be out in the market soon!
