Hasbro Announcement! Toy Fair 2012

Hasbro has posted some interesting information on what we can expect to see at the 109th American International Toy Fair in New York, NY. Mr. Seibertron and El_Duque will be on hand bringing you all the latest coverage beginning this weekend. However, the good folks at Hasbro have given a little heads up on some of the products that will be on hand:

Hasbro wrote:Throughout the year in 2012, kids and fans of the globally popular TRANSFORMERS brand will get to experience the “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” property in a variety of new and exciting ways. In February, the new animated series TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS and the second season of the hit animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, both from Hasbro Studios, will debut on The Hub television network. And, for the first time ever beginning in March, most of the TRANSFORMERS action figure expressions will adopt the TRANSFORMERS PRIME styling to complement the award winning series. Also in March, Hasbro will introduce a new toy segment called TRANSFORMERS BOT SHOTS, a whole new way to play out TRANSFORMERS battles. Available in favorite characters like OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE, kids can choose their power, crash into battle and defeat their opponent. TRANSFORMERS BOT SHOTS automatically convert when you crash ‘em! Sold one per pack, fans can collect 44 different BOT SHOTS figures across the product line. Then in May, fans will have another new way to experience the TRANSFORMERS brand with the launch of the highly anticipated new motion-based thrill ride TRANSFORMERS: THE RIDE-3D, opening at Universal Studios Hollywood. To finish the year with even more entertainment experiences, TRANSFORMERS fans will be able to enjoy the much buzzed about new video game TRANSFORMERS: Fall of Cybertron from Activision and High Moon studios as well as the highly anticipated TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE MMO from Jagex both launching in Fall. Roll Out!


More than Transformers, Hasbro is bringing a ton of other great products from Bey Blade to My Little Pony and host of new G.I. Joe toys and games to coicide with new Joe film.

Hmm. No mention of movie anything. That's not saying they've dropped it, of course, but it is a bad, bad sign, so far.

I take it Movieverse is pretty much dead at this point, just a few repaints sold on the side while Prime takes it's place. While there are many characters I'd love to see done (Devcon, Brains, the three remaining Constructicons, Cyberverse Brawl and Bonecrusher), I really can't say I'm upset about the line's apparent demise. I've completely lost interest with the lack of news since... October, I think it was.

It's pretty odd if you think about it, Animated was pushed around and axed in favour of the Movie line, and now the movie line gets axed in favour of Prime.
Guess the DOTM line didn't sell as good as the previous ones.

I never bought any of the movieverse figures (despite enjoying the movies themselves) so I am not disheartened at all by this news. I think the Prime figures are a great successor to the G1 variety (as far as articulation and pose-ability is concerned anyways).

I'm more interested in the new line of FoC toys as well as the MMO.

Umm... aside from your bias...

The US release of Que, Soundwave, their repaints, the Optimus with trailer we saw in package, hopes of a Dino figure? Maybe they don't matter to you, but they do to many others. You're getting your wish. Snark not needed. :P

I'd still love to see a DOTM leader Megatron. And leader Shockwave would be a dream. But seems like that's just a rumor somebody started last year with no real backing. (Everybody deluge Hasbro with emails asking for those figures!)

Ok, you got me. My bad people. In all fairness, I had every intention of picking up the Deluxe Soundwave if I ever saw him. So on that front, I feel your pain.

no mention of movie related stuff could be a good thing even if you do like them...might be a surprise reveal that Hasbro is going to give everyone who pre-ordered a Prime FE Bulkhead a new Bumblebee repaint as compensation.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I do recall several rumors of a "trilogy" themed toy line that would work similarly to HFTD. I would be shocked if Has/Tak allow all that R&D to go untapped for the host of potential repaints and reissues.

And you speak the truth. I was honestly hoping to see more from the Skyhammer mold specifically. I love that figure!

What exactly does that mean? Is Hasbro going to produce almost only "prime style" transformers from March on? Fall of Cybertron figures will also come for sure, but I hope other "classic style" figures will also come in the generations line... and in voyager size... (I miss more figures in the reveal the shield voyager size style...)

Crap mechtechs in supposedly-deluxe-but-almost-scout-class overproduced figures is what killed DOTM line...

If it is, then we can be sad together. I cannot wait for some the boys to start hitting us up with some awesome new product. Kinda sucks that 3rd parties are still fringe companies that probably won't be there... ohwell! :KREMZEEK:
