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


Hasbro teams up with DreamWorks and Paramount for first-ever live-action TRANSFORMERS feature film release on July 4, 2007

Pawtucket, RI (February 2007) - On July 4, 2007, the colossal battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS will invade our world when these aliens make Earth their final battleground in the live-action TRANSFORMERS movie. 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.

First introduced in 1984 by Hasbro and Takara as a toy line, TRANSFORMERS has become a global phenomenon inspiring comic books, video games, animated series, films and a convention dedicated to TRANSFORMERS collectors. Whether fans grew up with the robots or discovered them more recently, they continue to be fascinated by the alien robots from CYBERTRON that live on earth as "Robots in Disguise" and have the ability to change from robot mode to vehicle mode.

The movie, directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock, Bad Boys I and II) and executive produced by Steven 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 starred in Holes and Even 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.

"Hasbro is thrilled to work with DreamWorks, Paramount and Michael Bay in making the most amazing, larger-than-life version of the TRANSFORMERS saga ever created," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive Producer of the film. "Michael, Steven and the production crew have captured the personality of the TRANSFORMERS characters through ground-breaking visual effects and they have translated the storyline into a film packed with non-stop action and excitement."

To bring the action and adventure into kids’ homes, Hasbro will be releasing a new lineup of toys and games based on the characters and styling of the movie. From the OPTIMUS PRIME VOICE CHANGER HELMET to the ULTIMATE BUMBLEBEE figure, TRANSFORMERS fans of all ages will find something that will help them experience the excitement of the movie.

The TRANSFORMERS 2007 line includes the following:

TRANSFORMERS MOVIE ULTIMATE BUMBLEBEE
(Approximate Retail Price: $89.99; Ages: 5 & up; Available: Fall 2007)
Fans of TRANSFORMERS will love seeing BUMBLEBEE come to life on the big screen and this fall, they can experience the ULTIMATE BUMBLEBEE action figure, which is among the most realistic and technical TRANSFORMERS toys ever. The impressively styled Chevrolet Camaro Concept car changes into the beloved AUTOBOTS character, which stands an imposing 14 inches tall. BUMBLEE will "come to life" with robot animatronics action in both car and robot modes. Working headlights, battle sounds, and music, including Devo’s "Whip It", all add to the interactive experience.

Its storyline will follow the movie closely, giving players control over both the Autobots and the Decepticons as they choose to either protect the earth or pimp slap it."

    David Cian Comments on Losing Rights to Prequel Novel

    David Cian, who previously wrote two of the three novels based on the Dreamwave Comics stories, has commented on losing the rights to writing the prequel novel based on the upcoming Transformers Movie, as reported earlier on www.seibertron.com/news. The following statements were made by the writer on Don Murphy's board.

    "Greetings All,

    I wanted to post a quick note in regards to the Transformers Prequel Novel GHOSTS OF YESTERDAY. It may have been noted elsewhere on this board, but I wanted to address a couple of things that have come up.

    1) For a variety of reasons, while both the publisher (Del Rey) and Hasbro liked the overall story I created, they were not satisfied with my writing. I will not go into detail here, nor will I bash anyone involved. I will say, however, that the extreme time constraints and a number of information and communications issues within the project contributed greatly to the problems. I was forced to turn in pure draft pages - which is to say, pages I had written and never revised or looked at again - nor was I given the opportunity to do any revisions. This is a situation that occurs from time to time in media tie-in work, but is not a situation any author I know of enjoys.

    2) If you look up the book on Amazon, etc., you will see that Alan Dean Foster (who also wrote the film novelization) is given cover credit for GHOSTS OF YESTERDAY.

    3) Essentially, Alan was asked to rewrite my novel, so it's likely that inside the book on the title page, you'll see something to the effect of "Based on a story by David Cian". Alan is a popular and talented writer, and no doubt did a good job on the revision.

    4) For those of you who were hoping for another David Cian TF novel, I must apologize and DO hope you enjoy the book regardless. I have always approached my work within the Transformers universe with the same idea: that the fans must like the story. While I have NOT read the revised novel, my understanding is that the basic story I created is there.

    I appreciate your attention, and as always, have appreciated your many kind words and support.

    Sincerely,

    David Cian
    "
