Campaign to Save Toys R Us Stores Is Beginning #savetoysrus

#SAVETOYSRUS - An L.A. Times article details an effort to save a majority of Toys R Us stores in the U.S., spearheaded by MGA Entertainment Inc.'s CEO and majority owner, Isaac Larian. MGA Entertainment Inc. is best known for it's line of Bratz dolls, whose entrance into the market dominated by Mattel's Barbie line was once thought foolish, until the line took a good chunk out of Barbies' share of the fashion doll market. The businessman is leading an effort to save over half of Toys R Us locations by pledging US$200 million, and trying to raise the rest of the US$800 million needed through a crowdfunding effort.

Twincast / Podcast #196 "One With The Matrix"

One With The Matrix - In this episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "One With The Matrix", we join ScottyP, Megatronus, and RodimusConvoy13 as they catch up on the lastest Transformers news. This starts with the impending closure of Toys R Us and what impact that could have on both Transformers and the wider toy retail sector. That discussion leads into a break down of the last exclusive figure for the chain, Movie Studio Series Voyager Class Thundercracker. Next, first impressions are shared of recently revealed Power of the Primes figures including Voyager Class Inferno, Legends Class Cindersaur, and Legends Class Outback. The toy talk ends with a discussion of the possible upcoming Walgreens exclusive Wreck-Gar. Listener questions are answered next, starting with a question about what got us back into collecting Transformers. This is followed by a question asking what our favorite gimmick has been over the history of the toy line. The show moves to comic discussion beginning with the Optimus Prime Annual, then to the announcement of Requiem of the Wreckers, and finishing with Lost Light #16. Ending the show is the latest round of bragging rights.
Top 5 Best Giant Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Giant Transformers Toys

Giant Transformers - Remember that scene in the Transformers movie where Unicron transformed? The whole time you just saw a big planet that destroyed other planets ala Death star. But then it Transformed and our notions of the limit to Transformers flew out the window. This was the instance where we all gazed at the wonder of this brand and saw that it was boundless. Since then, there have been many giant Transformers in the fiction and better yet, we eventually got their toys. And this is what this list is all about. This is about those awe inspiring towering Transformers from the fiction and their wonderful toys. A quick note, this post was started January 2015. But with Hasbro announcing a yearly Titan class toy, I figured I should wait. Turns out nothing really changed from my initial thoughts of over 3 years ago.
Top 5 Best Optimus Prime Super Mode Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Optimus Prime Super Mode Transformers Toys

Best Super Mode Optimus Primes - No adversary is too great for Optimus Prime / Convoy. When everything seems bleak or when the challenge seems to tough, you can always count on him rising up to the occasion, often times in a super mode. These temporary evolved forms have been part of the franchise since the very beginning and are a mainstay of Japanese pop culture. It is always fun to see just how glorious that super mode will look like and the best part of this fiction being used to sell toys is that we do get the toys of these super modes. We even have super modes that don't even have fiction attributed to them like our first pick ...
Top 5 Best Ultra Magnus Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Ultra Magnus Transformers Toys

Best Ultra Magnus toys - From day one, Ultra Magnus toys were always closely related to Optimus Prime toys, with his first toy being a redeco with a different trailer which turned into a powersuit giving him a totally different look from Prime. Toy designs and ideas evolved from this giving a wide variety to Ultra Magnus toys where some are Prime redecos, others more extensive retools and others being fully original. We will explore the rich history of this autobot's toys by looking at the best ones to have come out so far.

Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Class Hot Rod found at Dutch Retail

Posted 12 hours ago by Bounti76 - 1,978 views

While the toyline for Transformers: The Last Knight effectively ended last year, there still are some figures that remain elusive. One of those figures is Deluxe Class Hot Rod, who, despite being a prominent character in the movie, had most of his toys in the U.S. lined up as Walmart exclusives. While this may have worked out in theory, the Autobots Unite subline (which all his U.S. toys were a part of) was effectively canceled at the 11th hour by the retailer, with his Deluxe Class and Legion - Read More
