The news from Ryan and Seibertron.com staff members attending Toy Fair 2011 is just getting started and the first story being reported from Hasbro is a big one! At this summer's Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego, one of Hasbro's exclusives will be a G.I. Joe/Transformers brand crossover set that features a Joe Skystriker jet painted to resemble Decepticon Starscream. Also included in the set will be Cobra Commander who will be armed with a mini Megatron gun! No photos of the set yet but when they're available, you'll find them here first. This set will no doubt be very popular when it's released at Comic-Con so start planning your trip to San Diego now if you hope to pick this up!

In a preview of next week's Toy Fair 2011 in New York, the Today Show featured a segment highlighting some of this year's hottest toys being introduced at the show. Included in the group were Hasbro's Cine-Masks, masks with built in RealD 3D lenses that allow kids and the "young at heart" to dress up as Bumblebee or Optimus Prime for the new movie's 3D release. The lenses can also be moved out of the way too so after the movie, the masks can be worn for everyday play. And, as an added bonus, the masks come with a set of traditional red and blue 3D glasses and a 3D poster for even more 3D fun. The Cine-Masks will retail for $9.99 a piece.

It's been a good day to be a Transformers: Prime fan. First it was revealed that the show would indeed have associated toys when we got our first look at Arcee. That was quickly followed by the reveals of Starscream, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Megatron.

If that wasn't enough to get you psyched up for Friday's big premiere of “Masters & Students” the Hub stopped by with another promo video of the upcoming episode and link to their press release! Be sure to visit for additonal images and information regarding Transformers: Prime!

New Episode of Popular Series to Premiere February 11

02.07.2011– LOS ANGELES, Ca. – The Hub, a television network for kids and their families, will premiere its original half-hour, full CGI animated series “Transformers Prime” in its regular weekly time period with a new episode Friday, February 11 (6:30 p.m. ET).

The new animated series will feature archrivals the Autobots and Decepticons as they once again face-off in their epic rivalry for control of Earth. The all-new mini-series will feature iconic characters of the franchise, including Autobots Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, and the ominous Decepticon Megatron, as well as introducing new human characters to the action series.

The Hub, which rebranded from the former Discovery Kids on 10-10-10, is a joint venture of Discovery Communications and Hasbro, Inc., and is available to 61 million U.S. cable and satellite households.

“Transformers Prime” is produced for The Hub by Hasbro Studios. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Kline are executive producers. Kurtzman and Orci served as co-writers and producers on the hit feature film Star Trek, and are currently co-writers and producers for the feature film Cowboys and Aliens from Dreamworks/Universal, set for release in summer 2011. Kline is also executive producer of The Hub animated series “G.I. Joe Renegades.”

The Hub is a multi-platform joint venture between Discovery Communications (NASDAQ: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) and Hasbro, Inc., (NASDAQ: HAS) with a goal of entertaining, enlightening, empowering and educating children and their families. The cable and satellite television network features original programming as well as content from Discovery's library of award-winning children's educational programming; from Hasbro's rich portfolio of entertainment and educational properties built during the past 90 years; and from leading third-party producers worldwide. The Hub lineup includes animated and live-action series, specials and game shows, and the network extends its content through a robust and engaging online presence at http://www.hubworld.com.

Be sure to RSVP the event by visiting the Hub FaceBook page!



But wait!..............there's more!

Toonzone has posted a lengthy report from a Q&A session with the staff of Transformers: Prime. A portion has been posted below, be sure to visit Toonzone to read the entire article!

- Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman's aim for the series was to do things with the Transformers they did not get the chance to do with the movie. Another selling point was bringing back Frank Welker as Megatron, since Bob Orci campaigned for him to play the role in the movies (Megatron is voiced in the live-action Transformers movies by Hugo Weaving).

- Jeff Kline revealed there is a specific reason why Bumblebee cannot speak English. The reason will be revealed in season two, and off screen Bumblebee "is working toward trying to solve that for himself."

- Kline says that generally the staff will want to show more Decepticons than Autobots in order to always show the Autobots at a disadvantage, to "make their job that much harder." There will be more Autobots and Decepticon characters depicted in seasons one and two, but there is more of a limitation due to the budgeting for the CG rendering process in the builds of the characters. Each Transformers character requires three distinct computer builds: robot, vehicle, and transformation.

- With regard to the character deaths, Kline says, "When we kill a character, we kill a character." Kline assured Toonzone News that Cliffjumper is dead. Kline did leave the door open for the exploration of the possible romance between Cliffjumper and Arcee in flashbacks for future episodes, but would not say if Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would return to voice the character.

- Bob Orci spoke more about his attraction to working on a Transformers series and the limitations of depicting the Transformers characters in the live-action movies. Bob wanted to show more about the Transformers mythology and history as well as just "hang out with them." Orci likes to stay between TV and movies because "they give you different satisfactions as a fan and as storytellers." Bob added that he would like to work with the Transformers Prime staff on other projects based on his experience working on Transformers Prime.

- Mike Vogel talked about the female appeal of the show -- especially through characters such as Arcee and Miko -- and noted that even boys enjoy characters like Arcee. Jeff Kline also spoke about the Japanese animation studio that works on the series, Polygon, being in love with the Miko character. According to Kline, the staff will give Polygon a fairly simple description of an action for Miko, and Polygon will give Miko even extra actions and animations. Bob Orci joked that it was simply "free labor."

- At one point in the season premiere, Soundwave uses a detachable drone unit, which according to Kline is an "homage" to Laserbeak. Kline would not confirm if the drone in the episode is Laserbeak though.

- Vogel confirmed there will be toys for the series and we will get news on the toy line "sooner than we may think."

We received the following message from TFsource.com regarding their Shadow Scyther figures.

TFsource.com wrote:The Shadow Scyther Raffle is officially complete!

There has been a lot of discussion regarding the remaining Shadow Scyther pieces that were made available through customer cancelations or being set aside initially for any defective returns. We have read the ongoing discussion and carefully taken into account all of the posts on the forums. Ultimately, we are here because of Transformers fans and we agree the best course of action is a solution that supports the best interest of the fans themselves.

We considered many options in order to come up with a solution that will please the majority of customers. Based on the popularity of one option, we have decided that the solution is a raffle with winners being randomly selected to purchase the remaining stock of Shadow Scyther for the original retail price. We feel this was the most unbiased and fair way to handle the remaining stock. Additionally we solicited input from the owners of select boards, as well as several established transformers fans and overall there was considerable support for this option.

Determining the Winners: Everyone who emailed us, or signed up for the personal assistant was included in the raffle. We used a random # generator, checked every customer history to ensure no one purchased one the first time around, and eliminated any duplicate emails to keep it fair. The winners will all be contacted by EOD today and receive the right to purchase 1 Shadow Scyther for the original retail price. If anyone declines or does not pay within the given time frame, we will go down the list to the next eligible customer.


Thanks and Best Regards,

Curt

We're less than five months away from the release of the Dark Of The Moon in theaters, and we've certainly seen our fair share of the first few waves of the film's subsequent toy line. Today we get a closer look at the alternate mode of the figures featured in the large group photo from a few days prior. We've got a look at Sentinel Prime, the massive Leader class fire truck. We also have images of the yet to be named helicopter, and the No.48 Lowe's Nascar. Their mechtech weapons are a machine gun, and a bow, respectively.

We also get a look at the new Deluxe Ratchet, armed with a Mechtech chaingun. We also have images of the new Deluxe Barricade and his mechtech claw and Sideswipe with his new convertible alternate mode and mechtech gun. And lastly, there is an image of DOTM Bumblebee. You can check out the images through the links above, or by viewing the YouTube video below ...

New pictures of the all new version of deluxe Skids for Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon have been posted to ACToys.net by member b-o-t. This new version of Skids features the new, black paint scheme we've seen from the set pictures and is also noticeably smaller than the last figure from Revenge of the Fallen (and the Hunt for the Decepticons line) as seen in the size comparison. The new figure also includes the latest Hasbro gimmick, Mech Tech, add on guns and weapon accessories that may or may not actually mimic what we'll see in the movie.

The Dark of the Moon toy line is expected to be released in May and be previewed next month at Toy Fair in New York. To see these latest pictures, click HERE.
