Directly from the Javits Convention Center showroom floor at New York Toy Fair 2017, site owner Seibertron has posted a gallery of an extremely limited premium edition set of Transformers Monopoly. Winning Solutions, a premium games company that has collaborated with Hasbro in the past, is working with the Transformers brand team to produce a high-end, G1-themed edition of one of America's oldest board games. Previous premium games from Winning Solutions include popular games such as Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble.

At first glance, the set appears to be framed artwork - suitable for hanging thanks to a friction locking system - featuring a laser etched aluminum 'frame' with classic robotic detailing, and The Transformers: The Movie inspired art by Marcelo Matere. The frame unfolds to become players' money and property trays, revealing a sleek Monopoly board with touches designed to entice fans' sensibilities:

  • Traditional Monopoly properties represented by classic Transformers characters
  • Houses & Hotels represented by teal & pink Energon cubes, respectively
  • Custom money and Chance/Community Chest cards
  • Diecast player tokens, including: Megatron (Gun mode), Soundwave (Walkman mode), Starscream (Vehicle mode), Hot Rod (Vehicle mode), Grimlock (Dinosaur mode), Optimus Prime (vehicle mode), Matrix of Leadership, and Unicron (planet mode).

While many details are as of yet unconfirmed and subject to change, Winning Solutions projects an early summer 2017 release date, with a prospective run of 500 sets and suggested retail price of $499. Additionally, each set will likely be hand-numbered and possibly signed by artist Marcelo Matere.

What do you think of this set? Up your alley, not your cup of tea? Please let us know your thoughts in the forums below!

New Bots Preview - Kup & Hun-Gurrr Gameplay Design

In previous weeks, we’ve taken a look at art concepts for Kup & Hun-Gurrr as well as their modeling and animation pipelines. This week, we’ll be diving deep into gameplay territory.Kup and Hun-Gurrr are both members of the Special class, yet their in-game stats and abilities differ widely. Upon release, they will be paired to an as of yet unannouncedAutobot and Decepticon.

Kup

Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event

Design Goals & RoleKup is a hugely experienced fighter and a key member of the elite Wreckers unit. Therefore, we wanted to give him respectable damage and enough health to stand his ground on the battlefield. He fits a role of a deep strike and assault unit, a damage dealer that can survive in the middle of enemy base, tackle important targets and escape when needed. Gameplay StatsKup’s base stats of put him close to Windblade. His attack range is relatively small, but he can dish out almost as much damage as gunners. Kup’s health pool (while not as high as a regular ‘warrior class’ bot) is twice the health of most air units. Moreover, his movement speed of 2.3 (compared to 1.8 for gunners and 2 for air) allows him to move between targets with relative ease. Attacks & WeaponryAs his primary attack against buildings and bots, Kup uses dual submachine guns. Their rapid rate of fire means Kup can deal highly consistent DPS (damage per second) and can finish off targets in a quick and efficient manner. But Kup has more tricks up his sleeve... Every 10 seconds, he will use a long range cluster grenade attack. These grenades significantly increase his DPS, can be thrown over walls and deal damage across a respectable area of effect.
Special Ability


Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event
Orbital bounce
Teleport to a target location and gain 70% damage reductionand immunity to slows and stuns for 5 (lvl 1) - 8.4 (lvl 10) seconds.

Orbital Bounce is what makes Kup truly unique and will let highly skilled players (with their impeccable timing and positioning) turn a good bot into the stuff of Cybertronian legends.

This teleportation skill was voted by the community as one of their favourites and we’ve since improved it by adding a shielding component to ensure that once Kup dives deep into the heart of an enemy base, he’ll get the protection he needs to escape safely.


Hun-Gurrr

Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event

Design Goals & RoleLeader of vicious Terrorcons and a cunning tactician, Hun-Gurrr both looks and fights like no other ‘con! His unique ‘mode based’ special ability hugely increases his damage potential and allows him to attack multiple buildings at once. Used in conjunction with gunners and medium/close range fighters like Nemesis Prime or Galvatron, Hun-Gurrr can cut through enemy lines with ease. Gameplay StatsStat wise, Hun-Gurrr is comparable to the leader of Predacons - Razorclaw. He has an impressive movement speed of 3.4 (0.2 faster than Razorclaw and twice as fast as warrior class ‘cons, who usually move at 1.7). Damage of our Terrorcon is 10% lower than Razorclaw’s, but his health is 10% higher! Attacks & WeaponryIn his regular mode, Hun-Gurrr has a series of vicious melee attacks as well as a medium-range fire breathing move similar to the one of Grimlock.
Special Ability


Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event
Fire Frenzy
Attack with fierce strength hitting multiple targets in a line, setting enemy buildings on fire and dealing up to 300% (lvl 1) - 425% (lvl 10) of damage. This mode lasts 15 seconds.

Fire Frenzy is what turns a cool looking ‘con into the truly terrifying harbinger of destruction. Until now, this type of “mode based” ability has only been used on the new combiners (Frantic/Righteous Rage abilities of Optimus Maximus and Bruticus). Once activated, Hun-Gurrr engages the chosen target and stays in this special mode for 15 seconds, he’s able to move and retarget as needed.

Moreover, his attacks can hit multiple targets in a long line behind the target, setting them on fire and dealing greatly increased damage. With good support and positioning, Hun-Gurrr can easily carve huge holes in even the strongest defense lines.

 

New Bots Preview - Dev Q&A Answers

You asked and we answered! Check out the responses from Chris (Product Owner) and Adam (Game Designer) to your questions in our latest developer Q&A.

Q) How do you determine relative sizes between bots and their alt form to other bots? / How do you decide a size of bots? Do you have any reference material you need to stick to when deciding a size of bots?
A) There are two different scales used in the game; one for the Team screen and another scale that is used in battle. For in-game clarity, we try to make bots fit within the boundaries set for their respective classes. Occasionally we’ll tweak scales on a per bot basis but there’s only so far we can go in terms of scale before things either become hard to read or start obstructing the in-game interface or competing with buildings. In game size also affects their physical radius and path finding. As in the comics and cartoons, we take some liberties but respect the size relations between bots; Bumblebee will always be much smaller than Optimus Prime for example.

Q) How long does the whole development process take to create per character?
A) From start to finish, the process takes around 6 weeks. However, we can create up to 4 characters in parallel over this period of time.

Q) Do you have any reference materials such as actual toys when developing new characters?
A) We draw inspiration from a wide range of sources when we compile a character’s moodboard and are often spoilt for choice. We make use of Transformers The Ark: A Complete Compendium Of Transformers Animation Models, the IDW comics, G1 movie references, the Marvel G1 Universe book and of course the toys themselves! The tfwiki and other fansites are an invaluable online source of knowledge, so props to those guys too!

Q) Does Hasbro review all the new characters before they make it into the game?
A) Absolutely. We work closely with Hasbro at each stage of the character creation process. This ensures we get feedback at each stage of the process from moodboards, through to blockouts and animations. An example of some feedback might be, ‘can you add the Autobot insignia to the character’s chest’ through to guidance on character sizing and the visual look and styling.

Q) Character itself or their ability, which do you guys work on first?
A) The class of the bot is determined by our designer before the artistic process begins, but it rarely affects the visuals and often the process is intertwined. One example of this is when we created Galvatron. In toy form, Galvatron has turned into both a cannon and tank. The design team wanted to make use of his static cannon as an ability to differentiate him from Megatron. Therefore, this feedback was given to the art team early in the process. Similarly, for weapons, the design team will give the art team feedback on which ones should be included with the character.

Q) Will Predaking be added to the game at some point? / Will Victorion be added to the game as a combiner?
A) We love both Predaking & Victorion and would like to add them in the future. However, we’re going to focus on some other innovative characters first that will hopefully bring unique gameplay options to battle.

Q) How much of a priority is getting the rest of the Stunticons out?
A) It’s going to take some time as we’re missing a lot of key Stunticons right now. However, Drag Strip may have a new Stunticon friend joining him very soon…

Q) Is Beast (the Combiner that consists of Grimlock, Slag, Sludge, Snarl and Swoop) in your future plan?
A) That sounds like an awesome combiner!

Q) Any plans to add Triple Changers?
A) Some of our favourite characters are Triple Changers. We’d love to add them, and when we do, we’ll do them justice with multiple abilities for each bot. This means triple changing both in both battle and the team screen.

Q) When can we expect to see the remaining Dinobots? / I am hoping to see the remaining dinobots soon. Can you tell me if you have plans to let them join the game?
A) Dinobots are awesome and we will add them ALL over time. Adam, our designer, is secretly hoping we’ll add Paddles, but we keep vetoing that suggestion! One day we’ll run out of new characters to add, and just have to include Paddles…

Q) I would like to see Metroplex and Trypticon bases incorporated into the game, are there any plans to add them?
A) Due to their size we’d need to find a novel way of using them. Either they’d have to become part of the base, or form a new game mode entirely!

Q) I have been requesting the same bot since I started playing. Are there any plans to add Warpath to the game? He is a G1 Autobot and the first tank to appear in the G1 cartoon. Right now the bots have no tanks when the cons have more than one. It would be great to see him fire from his chest cannon
A) We’re sad to say that he’s not on our plan right now, but we’ve doubled the number of Transformers in the game in just under a year so there’s every chance he could make an appearance in the future.

Misc. Questions
We’ve tried to focus on answering questions directly related to bots this time round, but here are some other responses to frequently asked questions!

Q) Can you release the ability damage numbers for Sunstreaker / Mirage / Pyra / Slug. IE: All the bots where damage is not mentioned. Silverbolt for instance. Even Bumblebee could be re-written. I don't understand why this has not been done already.
A) We only have the functionality expose one parameter per ability. For the aforementioned bots we’ve opted for duration. We aim to either provide a second parameter or possibly change what we display, especially for fire based attacks (the latter should be relatively straightforward).

Q) Do you plan to increase the maximum level for bots in the future?
A) We have no plans to do this at present.

Q) If you use a bot in battle which has reached it's maximum bot level, is the XP distributed to that bot and lost or do the other bots in your squad get the XP?
A) The XP is lost.

Q) When will we see the next Shuttle upgrade for 8 bots?
A) Currently we do not have plans to release another Shuttle upgrade.

Q) Is there a plan to boost current battle boosts as most are very underwhelming at this point?
A) Yes we are going to address this. Stay tuned!

Robots in Disguise App Updates reveal New Characters and Toys Like Menasor and Galvatronus

It has been a long time we didnt get new toy reveals through the Robots in Disguise App. It seems it is making up for lost time sinc we finally have our first look at not just 1, or 2, but 3 combiners:
Ultra Bee, Menasor and (hold onto your buts) Galvatronus!

There are also new Combiners/Activators: Soundwave & Torpedo Laserbeak (which we have already seen in toy form) and Optimus Prime & High Test.

We also finally see Dragbreak (which looks pretty much as you would expect), as well as Lunar Force Primestrong and Shocknado, which both appear to be redecos.

Let us know what you think of the designs. Remember that the combiners have been found to be at the 30$-35$ price point so that may explain why they look like simplified transforming toys with no individual robot modes, more along the power rangers zord concept.

Hopefulyl we will get a better look at these this coming saturday at the 2017 New York Toy Fair.

Q) Do I need different spark for these combiners?

A) Yes. You can upgrade your Combiner’s health and damage using Optimus Maximus or Bruticus Spark obtained from duplicates of Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Sunstreaker, Prowl and Mirage or Combaticons in the Space Bridge.

Thanks to both Seibertronian Shauyaun and Twitter user Snakas, we now have images of the next 2 combiners making their way into Earth Wars: Optimus Maximus and Bruticus! The 2 new combiners are both 5 bot combiners instead of 6, so they should be slightly easier to collect. Bruticus follows his Combiner Wars toy design faithfully minus his thighs being turned 90 degrees like several fan modes. Optimus Maximus is weird: he follows his 'Ultra Prime' color scheme with his 'Optimus Maximus' limb design, but instead of the combined mode chest we are used to, he instead uses his Masterpiece MP-10 chest design with the little yellow spoiler/ax that came with Rodimus, who is not part of the set, making his design very.... interesting. Check out the new images below, which include the upcoming new cover screen, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

SAN FRANCISCO – December 1, 2016 – Kabam, a world leader of massively multiplayer mobile games for a global audience, and Hasbro Inc. today announced the title and key details of TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, a new high-definition, action-fighting mobile game set in an immersive world. The game will feature authentic Transformers “more than meets the eye” action, allowing players to engage with Optimus Prime, Megatron and many other popular Autobots and Decepticons in a stunning 3D environment. The new title will enter beta testing in select territories soon and will be available worldwide in Spring 2017.

TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight will give players access to nearly every era of the franchise’s history, challenging gamers to assemble the ultimate team of Transformers characters, including Autobots and Decepticons from the animated TV series, blockbuster films, as well as fan-favorites from the Transformers comic book series and Hasbro’s line of iconic figures. As fans assemble their team, they will forge alliances, battle other players and dive into a unique storyline that goes beyond good versus evil.

“TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight embraces the best that the Transformers brand has to offer, allowing players to collect the most memorable Autobots and Decepticons from every era of the brand’s thirty-plus year history,” said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President, Digital Gaming and Corporate Development at Hasbro. “We’re excited to work with Kabam to bring this unique mobile game to life, and think fans will be thrilled with the final product.”

In TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, explore an epic new universe where multiple realities collide to form a massive planetary battlefield. Players will assemble a team of Autobots and Decepticons from across time and space to fight against a world of corrupted Transformers and their villainous overlords. The game features amazing visuals, intense one-on-one battles, meaningful robot to vehicle converting action and deep RPG elements. Transformers such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream and Grimlock will level up over time, unleashing powerful new abilities and devastating robot-vehicle attacks.

“The Transformers franchise and its characters are larger than life, and Kabam is working closely with Hasbro to develop a game that lives up to that expectation,” said Mike McCartney, Executive Producer for TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight. “It will be a thrilling experience for long-time fans of the brand as well as newcomers, offering players incredible visuals, action-packed gameplay, and a truly immersive world.”

TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight is being developed by Kabam Vancouver, the studio who created Fast & Furious: Legacy and Marvel Contest of Champions, a top grossing game on the App Store.

Via fellow Seibertronian Mindmaster, we have some new information about the Kabam studios mobile MMO featuring our favourite Cybertronians - Transformers: Forged to Fight. Gaming website Gamespot has sourced an interview with both Kabam and Hasbro, which you can view in its entirety here, and some snippets offered below. Read up on the background of the upcoming game - which seems to blend classic Transformers elements with the movieverse - and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

Developer Kabam and toy company Hasbro today announced Transformers: Forged to Fight, a mobile game based on the well-known franchise.

Described as a "high-definition, action-fighting role-playing game with strategy elements," Forged to Fight claims to offer trademark Transformers action. You will assemble an "ultimate" team of Transformers, including Autobots and Decepticons from across almost every era of the Transformers history, and then do battle. The game is set in a colorful 3D world, and battles take place in a number of varied and unique arenas. Click through the images in the gallery below to get a closer look.

The game is set in a "strange new world where multiple realities collide," which in turn creates a "massive planetary battlefield." So, you know, Transformers stuff. Some of the features include 1v1 battles, RPG elements described as being "deep," and base-rading. Some of the playable Transformers include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, and Grimlock. These characters can be leveled up through gameplay, unlocking more abilities over time.

Forged to Fight enters beta in some territories soon, and will be released widely across the world in Spring 2017. The game is in development at Kabam Vancouver, which is the studio that made Fast & Furious: Legacy and Marvel Contest of Champions.

The release teases a "unique" story that goes beyond purely good and evil--what more can you say on that front--and is this canon?

McCartney: We've worked closely with our partners at Hasbro to create the story of our game. In doing so we've ingested every classic cartoon, comic book, movie, that you can imagine. Our team has immersed ourselves in the Transformers Universe in order to understand each character’s unique personality and quirks. As the game begins Optimus Prime is returning to his home planet of Cybertron after many years of conflict on earth. During the course of his travels his ship encounters a strange anomaly in space and crash lands on a strange planet. Through the course of the game Optimus is attempting to unravel the mystery and escape the planet.

[...]

How much freedom are you afforded in the Transformers universe? It's obviously a massive, revered franchise--but I'm guessing you want to push things forward with your own unique voice, so to speak, as well.

McCartney: We work closely with our partners at Hasbro to ensure that we stay true to the franchise and lore established over the course of the last 30+ years. We also take the history of the Transformers franchise very seriously. For example, before we start work on a new character we have a bit of a classroom session for everyone working in that character. Our Transformers experts walk everyone through the history of the character and his / her personality traits. This gets everyone in the right mindset before starting work on a character. With regard to the story and character dialogue, Hasbro has been amazing. They give us the freedom to create our own vision and then feedback if something isn't true to lore, or if we're pushing something too far. For the most part this interaction has been minimal. We're excited about continuing work with Hasbro in the future and we have a lot of ideas we can't wait to collaborate on.
