Our own Cujo, who works for Wal-Mart made an interesting discovery at work. When throwing away garbage at work he came across the toy departments papers, and happened to find this:






The paper is an an order sheet. Cujo located the Devastator 5 pack on the above sheet. It looks like the set will cost $30.00 and is a "featured item for week 10". Currently Wal-Marts are at week 8. So Devestator should be poping up in stores relatively soon so keep your eyes open!

Hasbro Answers Star Wars Transformers Question

For one reason or another the Star Wars Transformers line has been fairly successful. CreatureCantina.com was able to ask Hasbro about the Star Wars line. One of the questions focused on how Hasbro chose to market the Star Wars Transformers line. The answer is pretty interesting. Here is the question with the answer:

"CC: Could you please describe the marketing strategy for the Star Wars Transformers line? Obviously, there is a lot of overlap between the two fan bases. I for one am as likely to bore my friends for hours on end describing the Hegellian dialectic operating in the Transformers Movie as I am to discourse on the Roman historical parallels at work in the Star Wars saga. That being said, why didn't we see a greater synthesis in this hybrid line? Maybe a Sith would be so narcissistic as to want to drive a giant robot with his own augustan likeness, but it seems to me that a simple headswap could have had Starscream transforming into an Imperial Shuttle. Did you conduct market tests that showed six-year-old boys preferred vehicles that turned into giant versions of Star Wars characters rather than Transformers that turned into Star Wars vehicles? I'd wager that the 35 year old collector market would have enjoyed the latter.

H: Excellent question and one of the decision points we were faced with when our Star Wars R&D team created the idea for the line. We very clearly kept the Star Wars Transformers line focused on the *functional* aspect of transformation rather than an intellectual property (IP)-based transformation to deliberately not confuse the "real" Transformers storyline. This was especially important considering the upcoming Transformers movie this Summer. For the same extent, we have not as a company pursued any GI Joe-vs-Transformers toys even though the cross-over comics have been very successful. It's keeping the communication very clear from a kid standpoint, which was our primary focus. Believe it or not, we did not factor the collector very heavily into the SW TF line thinking at the beginning, since we were not confident that collectors of either Star Wars or Transformers would be converts to the line. Since this super-cool line has been well-received by both kids and collectors alike, you have seen us delve a little deeper to deliver more collector-focused concepts like transforming Imperial Shuttles, Clone Wars deco-vehicles, and Snowspeeders to deepen the collecting and playing experience."

At the Wizard World convention in Los Angeles this weekend, IDW publisher and editor-in-chief Chris Ryall attended. In his panel, he discussed upcoming projects the company will release in the near future, including on the Transformers brand front. On display was also some artwork, most of which can be viewed in the artcle by CBR.

"We talked about 'Star Wars,' since they've got those figures that transform, like Boba Fett that changes into Slave I. Lucas wasn't a big fan of that, but we're doing the Avengers crossover. I don't want to do a glut of Transformers crossovers because they lose their specialness".

The pictures below were taken from the CBR report.
