In a recent report, Reel Movies got some insight on the production experience with Director Michael Bay from Transformers Revenge of the Fallen's visual effects supervisor Matthew Butler.

In the report Butler stated:"He's brilliant, but he's a challenge....he's incredibly fast-paced. He's a whirlwind to keep up with, both on the set and in post... [Bay] took the production value up many, many notches. Just the backgrounds alone are huge. It's a combination of Apocalypse Now and Ben-Hur, in regards to fantastic backgrounds and the unbelievable sets we worked at around the world."

Aside from Mr. Butlers descriptions of the great detail the filming backdrops contain another interesting note was added to the end of the report. According to Reel Movies, there are over 60 robot characters in the movie. A substantial amount more than the projected 20 bots we reported here.

In what may seem like a long time coming to some of us, the Transformers franchise will be honored with induction into the ToyFare Hall of Fame at Wizard World Philadelphia from June 19th to June 21st, 2009 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

With the HASBRO toyline reaching its Silver Anniversary, it seems fitting that honoring the line would be this year. Wizard World had this to say regarding the induction:

“Hasbro has produced incredible Transformers action figures for both diehard fans and younger audiences,” Wizard Entertainment Publisher Gareb Shamus said. “We're very pleased to honor Hasbro with this award of achievement for Transformers.”


More details will be furnished once they become available. Read the original posting on this here.

In what seems to be an extremely popular picture to parody, the recently famed President Obama picture of "Hope" has been made to render the Autobot leader that all Transformers have come to respect: Optimus Prime. Below is the original rendition for comparison with the new print.

According to the latest issue of the Transformers Club Magazine, Brian Savage tells us that three of the Botcon exclusive figures will have remolded heads. As to the who, what, where and when, no word has been mentioned as of yet. This number is one short of the total exclusive figures, which had four remolded heads in Shattered Glass Goldbug, Blurr, Megatron and Jazz/Richochet.

With more and more families feeling the financial pains of the current state of economic recession, they are turning to the Toys For Tots Foundation to help provide their children with a little joy this holiday season. The Toys For Tots Foundation is also experiencing a drop in toy donations as less families are able to afford purchasing toys for the collection bins.

Now you can help without even going to the store. Text For Tots is a new way that the US Marine Corps Reserve based charity has devised so that you can provide a $5.00 USD donation to Toys For Tots via your mobile phone.

Simple text the word TOY to number 90999 and a one time charge of $5.00 USD will be added to your phone bill. These donations will be used to purchase toys for "the economically disadvantaged children across the country".

But wait, it gets better. Not only will your donation go to helping deserving children, but our favorite toy company, HASBRO, Inc. has agreed to donate a toy or game for every text donation received by December 21st 2008, by up to 150,000 texts.

"Through the gift of a shiny new toy, Toys for Tots delivers hope and joy to millions of children," says Brian Goldner, president and chief executive officer for Hasbro, Inc. "We want to help make sure every family who turns to Toys for Tots for assistance this year, will have the opportunity to put a smile on the face of a deserving child."

Here is a great opportunity to help out a worthy cause and double the joy of giving with your donation.

NFR's Top Toys for 2008 Holiday Season

The National Retail Federation recently conducted a survey amongst holiday shoppers and got the scoop on what consumers say are the hottest toys to grab this Holiday season.

The TRANSFORMERS brand ranked 5th in the top 10 toys for boys catagory, just behind Video Games and the Ninentdo Wii console but beating out Star Wars and XBOX 360.

2008 Top Toys for Boys

1. Video Games
2. Nintendo Wii
3. LEGO
4. Cars (generic)
5. Transformers
6. Elmo
7. Star Wars
8. Hot Wheels
9. Remote Controlled Vehicles
10. Xbox 360


Another interesting report the survey had was that 77 percent of shoppers who participated had less than 10 percent of the their holiday shopping done. In a statement made by NFR President and CEO Tracy Mullen, she cited that “Americans may be hesitant to purchase expensive gifts this holiday season, but personal and practical gifts will resonate most with shoppers this year.” She also said that “Though many companies have already been featuring substantial sales and discounts, retailers may still have a few tricks up their sleeves to attract and entice holiday shoppers.”

Whoa nelly! With Walmart already featuring Transformers Deluxe class figures at $7.77 USD, and TARGET Stores following suit at $7.79 USD for the same class figures, the thought of getting better deals on Transformers figures may just bump Video Games out of that number one spot.

Stock Watch: HASBRO "The Best Play in Toys"

Despite the loss in profit that HASBRO, Inc. (HAS NYSE) reported on Monday, October 21st, analysts reports and investors continue to give the toy company the greenlight when it comes to buying common shares.

Financial Writer, Glenn Curtis of the Investopedia Community posted an article today outlying why he believes that HASBRO is the best choice when it comes to toy makers. Taken from the article:

Nemesis Mattel (NYSE:MAT) has a long and storied history similar to that of Hasbro, but I think that when it comes down to it, Hasbro is the better play. First, Hasbro managed to beat analyst's estimates by a pretty impressive three cents in the period. Meanwhile, Mattel released its third quarter earnings on the same day, and it earned 66 cents a share, which was five cents below what analyst’s had been looking for.

He then goes on to list all the acheivments that the company has made within the last year and the massive buy back of HASBRO stock that the company invested its money in. He explains that the buy back shows the confidence that the toy manufacturer has with its projected financials which will translate into common stock gains over the next year.

All in all its a great read and you don't have to be an Exchage specialists to understand what he's saying.

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.
