In a report earlier today by Seeking Alpha (a stock anaylst website) the projected earnings report for HASBRO, Inc. (HAS NYSE) has been posted.

According to the report "Analysts are looking for a profit of 86c on revenue of $1.26B. The consensus range is 73c to 94c for EPS, and revenue of $1.16B to $1.31B".

In a nutshell, the outlook is good for the Transformers creator's quarterly financial gains despite current economic stresses and a projected cut down on "discretionary spending" by consumers.

Analysts are also predicting that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will generate even more revenue than the first film in both box office and toy sales, keeping HASBRO at a higher gain.

As previously reported, HASBRO is set to webcast its 3rd quarter earnings report on Monday, October 20th, 2008 at 8:30 A.M. EST.

In an effort to quell the economic crunch being experienced by consumers, Transformers creator HASBRO, Inc. (HAS NYSE) has issued a statement regarding toy price ranges for the upcoming Holiday season.

In the statement, HASBRO projects most toylines to fall within the $20.00 USD pricing bracket. This pricing is a direct result of the current financial stress that families have been experiencing from the recent Stock Market woes and is meant to help parents in their time of need. The Company's CEO, Brian Goldner, also stated that two thirds of HASBRO products are already priced at $20.00 USD or below.

Walmart Stores has stated that its franchise has already cut prices in advance of the Holiday season with price reductions in most Deluxe line figures of the Transformers Toys and HASBRO's Play Doh Ice Cream Shop.

Good news for us consumers for the fast approaching festivities.

In what could be the first time a mission name was ever done after our beloved Transformers, Canadian officials reported dealing a huge blow to terrorist forces in the middle east during Op Timis Preem, a mission in which the objective was to stop terrorist forces from creating and using Improvised Explosive Devices (IED).

Canadian news outlet CTV.ca reports that Canadian military had a decisive victory over the weekend against Taliban terrorists. The operation was carried out in the Zhari district of Kandahar province last Thursday through Saturday Taken from the article:

Lt.-Col. Dave Corbould told reporters Monday that Canadian Forces "hit the Taliban hard" during operation Op Timis Preem.

Corbould said the operation's objective was to strike at the Taliban's command and control infrastructure and take away their ability to conduct operations against Afghan and coalition forces.

The mission's key goal was to reduce the Taliban's ability to build improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which they routinely plant along Highway Number One -- the main national highway that crosses Kandahar province.



The article then went on to explain the casualties of the operation and what the soldiers of the Canadian military face on a daily basis. What's never mentioned is the origin of the mission name. Apparently, the reporting journalist didn't make the connection between the mission and the heroic Leader of the Autobots.

With a tagline like Less than Meets the Eye: The 12 most ridiculous Transformers, you have to expect the author to be an anti-Transformers type who spends most of their time looking for things to hate the in the TF Universe.

This list, while very suprising, may make sense to some and not so much to others. Below you will see a list of Z's 12 Worst Transformers ever created, in no particular order.

(Generation One) Huffer



(Generation One) Ultra Magnus



(Robots in Disguise/Car Robots) Fire Convoy



(Generation One) Shockwave



(Generation One) Ratbat



(Transformers: Live Action Film) Frenzy



Now I know what you guys are thinking: What?!! How could he say that about (fill in the blank)?!! But before you go crazy, read the authors reasons why each Transformer made the list. Some of the explanations weren't exactly suitable for Seibertron.com, so be warned about the language.

Agree or not, its sure to be an entertaining read for those diehard Transformers fans. You can view the complete article by clicking here.

Stock Watch: Moody gives HASBRO a lift to Positive!

Hello, my fellow Seibertronians. First Gen here with another update on HASBRO, Inc. (HAS NYSE) stock options.

HASBRO suffered a slight stint in stock prices recently when stock analysts placed the toy companies shares at full value. The average price of HASBRO stock fluctuated after that between $1.68, up or down. Today, a report by Moody's Investement Service (MIS) has affirmed the companies rating and switched its outlook on the Transformers creator to positive, stating the companies performance so far this year has beaten their expectations.

Citing CEO Brian Goldner's statement of venturing into new areas of entertainment, MIS believes HASBRO's ability to adapt to new trends in the industry is showing, such as with digital gaming.

But even with the affirmation, MIS has maintained its ratings table for HASBRO at Baa2. The companies global packaged good rating is at A3, which is two levels higher than the domestic. The difference in the two ratings are due to factors that "are particularly applicable to the toy industry to which Moody's ascribes significant weighting." But until HASBRO can show "clear evidence that core brands are experiencing sustained organic growth", a raise in the rating is unlikely.

Overall, HABRO shares are still holding strong, being at 45% plus their value from this time last year. Sales in the quarter were up 13 percent to $784.3 million from $691.4 million. Hasbro stock fell 36 cents, or 0.91 percent, to $39.20 in midday trading on Friday.

Seibertron.com member Proximus posted an article recently regarding toy gun replica laws for Canadian residents. According to a new appeal, the Masterpiece Megatron figure will be legal for purchase for our friends to the north.

Taken from the article:

A recent Canadian International Trade Tribunal ruling has paved the way for a contentious Transformers action toy to be imported into Canada.

At issue was an "MP-5 Destron Leader Megatron" plastic action figure, which the border agency classified as a prohibited device.

The toy can be transformed from a model robot into a purported replica of a Walther model P-38 semi-automatic pistol. Under Canadian customs tariffs, replica firearms cannot be brought into the country.
