A new article over on License Global, in light of the upcoming Licensing Expo 2018, at which Hasbro will be presenting its new line-ups of merchadise for the Bumblebee movie and potentially their other media endeavours such as Cyberverse and Rescue Bots Academy, as well as the IDW Publishing comics, sheds some light on where the future of the Transformers franchise is headed - at least, according to Hasbro's head honchos, and their 'blueprint'.

Bumblebee, of course, is at the center of it all. Even with the reboot of the live action film franchise (and the IDW narrative), the yellow bug scout is being banked on to promote the brand and franchise across multiple media, with mentions of Cyberverse, some confusion around the currently airing Power of the Primes (as the final part of the Prime Wars Trilogy), and the general intention of putting Bumblebee first as a wide appeal character, and what that means for the media approach of Hasbro's licensees. Read the full piece here, some extracts below, and take a look at a new image of the Bumblebee vehicle mode from the Cyberverse animated series!

“We decided on Bumblebee because we wanted to go in a bit of a different direction. We wanted a character-focused film versus an ensemble. He is loved by kids, multiple generations, girls and women. Everyone loves Bumblebee,” continues Warner.

Hasbro is capitalizing on the film’s surroundings with a slate of ‘80s-themed launches including a TV series, a vinyl album and a graphic novel, which the company hopes will “lead a wave of Millennial nostalgia.”

[...]

Hasbro is off to a running start with two new television programs, “Transformers Cyberverse (Chapter 1)” and “Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy.” The first is an animated series from Hasbro Studios and Boulder Media that follows Bumblebee as he attempts to recover his memories on Earth. “Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy” picks up on the “Transformers: Combiner Wars” story line and offers a more detailed look at the franchise’s characters and history.

Though the shows are not set in the 1980s, “Cyberverse” emphasizes the idea of keeping memories alive, while “Prime Wars,” which debuted on Verizon’s streaming service VerizonGo90, was conceived as a way to reach older, devoted fans who have grown up with the franchise.

[...]

The new film comes to life with the help of actress Hailee Steinfeld and action star John Cena. At a time when audiences are looking for more female representation on screen, Waters remarks that “the choice to cast Hailee in the leading role may open the traditionally male brand up to female fans.”

“We felt [Hailee] was right for the picture and we are looking to expand our audience and be as inclusive as possible with the franchise,” adds Warner. “This is a step worth noting for a brand that has traditionally been displayed in the boys’ aisle of toy stores.”

We have another update for the Bumblebee movie prequel comic, which sees the reunion of John Barber and Andrew Griffith, with Priscilla Tramontano on colours, on a movie piece of work, in the form of the actual cover for From Cybertron with Love!

The cover is an homage to the theme of the book, and a call back to the pulp-style paperbacks with a noir/crime/spy thriller of past publications - though no artist is currently credited UPDATE: The artist is Sara Pitre Durocher! - and you can check it out below. Will you be picking this up, even if you're not planning on watching the movie in December?

About Transformers Bumblebee Movie Prequel: From Cybertron With Love

Fan-favorite Autobot Bumblebee is recruited for a top secret mission, and 1960s London won’t know what hit it when this robot in disguise goes undercover.

It’s high-tech, high-octane, high-clearance spy hijinks in From Cybertron with Love.

Some call him Goldfender, but the name’s Bee… Bumblebee. On loan to MI6 and teamed with a human partner, Bee’s trapped in the middle of a Cold War plot to disrupt British Secret Intelligence. But when their base is destroyed from within, it’s up to Bee to discover if there’s a traitor in their midst…and, in the spy world, allegiances can change just as easily as a Cybertronian.

From long-time Transformers writer and British super spy aficionado John Barber (Optimus Prime, Action Man), From Cybertron With Love is the official prequel to the new Bumblebee film, in theaters December 2018.

Singaporeans are in luck this time with the Studio Series wave 2 voyagers being found at Toysrus. Two singaporean fans, lake88 and darkavenger, reported finding Brawl and Megatron on their local sightings board at TFW2005. It seems they were found simultaneously across the island nation at different Toysrus stores like the Paragon and Vivo locations.

You can see just how much bigger one is to the other in the way Megatron really fills every inch of that box. This being the first global sighting it is impossible to know how much time it will take for these to reach the west and from past experience, it could be in two days or two months from today. These are expected end of June, early July, according to the seasonal Hasbro schedule.

Will you all be getting both of these fully new molds? Let us know!

Composer Dario Marianelli to Score Bumblebee: The Movie

Via specialised site for cinema music Film Music Reporter, and one of their brief updates, we have news about who will be scoring the next - and for now last in this narrative universe - Paramount live action movie featuring the Transformers: Bumblebee The Movie.

According to the source, composer Dario Marianelli - who has worked on Kubo and The Two Strings with director Travis Knight previously - will be taking the helm for the score, though we are also to expect some 80s style rock according to previous coverage and initial images from the movie (if going by Hailee Steinfeld's attire, in any case, and Bumblebee's direction for vocal interaction via radio snippets). Check out more info below!

Dario Marianelli has been tapped to score the upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. The film is directed by Travis Knight and stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Rachel Crow, Pamela Adlon, Stephen Schneider, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn and Grace Dzienny. The movie is set in 1987 and follows a teenage girl trying to find her place in the world as she discovers Bumblebee refuged in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Christina Hodson (Unforgettable, Shut In) wrote the screenplay. Michael Bay who helmed all the previous Transformers movies (scored by Steve Jablonsky) is producing the project with Knight, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (RED, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Stephen Davis (Ouija: Origin of Evil). Marianelli has previously collaborated with Knight on LAIKA’s 2016 feature Kubo and the Two Strings. Bumblebee is set to be released on December 21, 2018 by Paramount Pictures.

Marianelli (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, Darkest Hour, V for Vendetta, Anna Karenina) has also recently scored the Italian drama Nome di donna, which opened in Italian theaters this past March. No word yet on a domestic release.

Universal Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Snarl Coming to BBTS

As part of a supposed mandate during the year of Trasformers: The Last Knight, practically all Age of Extinction dinobots were to be redeco'd in darker more screen accurate colours. Many of you might still see the voyager Grimlock still on shelves, and the Strafe, Slug and Slash redecos were also available at retail. There was also a Snarl redeco to go along with his fellow Dinobots but he was a Universal Studio exclusive (and not even labeled as part of The Last Knight).

So for many, that was a toy they simply would not be able to add to their collection. That will change later this month, with BBTS now listing this same toy for only $19.99 USD. We have official images in the listing as well that you an see below. Which of you will be getting this toy?

Product Description
Bring home the explosive action of the Transformers universe with this Deluxe Snarl figure. This Dinobot figure converts from robot to stegosaurus in 15 steps. Figure comes with 1 blaster and 1 blade accessory that combine to form 1 bigger mace accessory.

The name Snarl says it all. Constantly scowling, the Autobots and Dinobots can never really tell if the ferocious warrior is on their side. Entrenched with a fiery hatred towards the Decepticons, the Dinobot only smiles when faced with another chance to take down the enemy.

Product Features
Deluxe class figure
Made of plastic
Converts to stegosaurus Dinobot mode
Converts in 15 steps
Battle alongside ferocious Dinobot, Snarl
Box Contents
Snarl figure
Weapon accessory

We are getting more and more in hand looks at voyagers Brawl and Megatron from the second wave of the Transformers Studio Series. We now have transformation videos for each. Oddly enough, they are each part of a much larger video featuring other robot toys. Luckily, they are covered first so you can just click on either video below and see the transformation straight away.

This is our bet look yet at these toys and the first time we really see what is going on. Megatron always appeared much larger than other voyagers but it turns out that he is the same mass and is simply hollow inside (similar to First Edition Bulkhead).

Let us know your thoughts and if you are still excited for these two toys! They should be found at retail next month or so.

We have some new in-hand and in package images from the second wave of Transformers Studio Series figures, and specifically of the Megatron and Brawl toys from the line, respectively in the Voyager and Deluxe size classes, sporting their incarnations from the 2009 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen live action movie and the first 2007 Trasformers feature from Paramount and Michael Bay.

The images are shown below, as shared by user is456 from fellow fansite TFW2005, so you can take a look and let us know what you think of the two new Decepticon molds in the Energon Pub discussion boards - check them out!

It took quite a while to get there, but now Canadians can find the Toysrus exclusive voyager Thundercracker in their nearest Toysrus store. There are reported sightings from all across the country at almost the same time. The specific sighting below comes from the Anjou location in Montreal. This exclusive Thundercracker can be found with its own specific SKN 389673 and sells for $39.99 CDN, the same price as non exclusive voyager toys in the Studio Series line.

While this toy continues to be found in the US at the Toysrus locations still open, it will also be available on Entertainment Earth. While it is mainly a redeco, the toy itself has been getting great feedback from the fan community so it is nice to know that anyone in either the US or Canada can easily get one for their collection.

Thanks to Seibertronian and news staffer William-James88 we are able to share with you an article on the upcoming film. Collider.com did an interview with the one and only John Cena and Director Travis Knight about Bumblebee: The movie. One interesting thing that can be learned from this is that there will supposedly be some Easter eggs relating to the Bay flicks.

In Travis Knight's interview he mentions that he grew up with Transformers and had some figures. He also tells us that there is a more limited cast of characters. John Cena is a little harder to hear but he is familiar with Transformers and claims to have owned some growing up. He sounds excited and wants to keep from spoiling which characters will be in the movie because he thinks it will be more exciting for the fans to be surprised.
