Ever wanted to see an Autobot on the racing circuit? Well, looks like we're one step closer to that dream! Dawson Racing has partnered with Hasbro to create a racing team based on Transformers!

The father and son duo of Ian Dawson and Simon Dawson today announced the launch of their new team called Dawson Racing, a division of the D3 brand. With 45 years of sports industry experience and their passion for motorsports as the driving force behind the company, their new business now encompasses the third generation of Dawsons' with Simon's son's birth in June 2008.

In addition, they're further excited to announce that Hasbro will join them for the creation of the D3+Transformers Racing Team for 2018 and beyond.

The team will field a new 2018 Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2) class car in the International Motor Sport Association (IMSA) WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series as part of a three-year program commencing in 2018. The popularity of the Transformers toy line will be significant with Transformers-themed livery.

"We are very pleased to collaborate with D3 and the Dawson family to be part of this exciting racing program," said Tom Warner, senior vice president, Transformers franchise. "We're always looking for innovative ways to be more than meets the eye and connect Transformers with families and fans of all ages. We are excited to team up with a first-class racing team and series with a brand that has a natural fit for cars and fans of all ages."

"From the minute we met the Hasbro people, we knew this was the partner we were looking for to introduce D3 to the world through their immensely popular Transformers line," Ian Dawson, CEO of D3. "I have been working on giving new opportunities to young drivers and engineers who are looking for a way to progress their talents in motorsport and with Simon's commercial awareness and interest in the business we developed a vision."

"We sought to bring a franchise entertainment brand like Transformers into the primary position so we could create a stable, long-term platform for others to collaborate with, and we could not have secured a better company than Hasbro to bring real family values to the sport at the highest level. We know this is going to be an exciting, competitive and fun partnership for all involved. Every kid out there is going to want to go the races to see the Transformers race cars and to be a part of the support programs we plan to create at each venue."

"We are delighted to have the new D3+Transformer Racing team coming to IMSA in 2018 and beyond," said Scott Atherton, President of IMSA. "This team introduces a new sponsor to our sport that has a natural fit and growing demographic – kids asking parents to bring them to races, which we are seeing more and more. We welcome Hasbro and D3 to the Prototype field of the WeatherTech Championship. Not only will this team be popular with the kids but the adults as well, especially for the Transformers promotional activities they plan to activate surrounding our races."

The D3+Transformers Racing team's one show car will be making their first official appearance at HASCON in Providence, R.I. September 8th -10th. This will be the first time all the Hasbro brands are under one roof for an interactive and hands-on Hasbro play experience. From fan favorites to family fun, grown-ups and kids alike will celebrate the power of play at the first-of-its kind "con"vention. The D3+Transformers show car will be part of the wildly popular Transformers exhibit, complete with actual Transformers, providing a great introduction into the combined world of racing and toys.

Stay tuned for the D3+Transformers Racing driver line-up and other information to be announced at Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in early October.

Transformers from Hasbro has been a beloved brand for more than 30 years, spanning action figures, films, animated shows, comics, games and more.

HOLLYWOOD, CA (July 31, 2017) – Paramount Pictures, in association with HASBRO, announced today that principal photography has commenced on “BUMBLEBEE.” The film’s shoot will take place entirely in California, including in Southern and Northern California.

When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

The film is produced by “TRANSFORMERS” franchise veterans Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay, along with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. Chris Brigham (“ARGO,” “INCEPTION”) will also executive produce. The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson (“UNFORGETTABLE”).

IDW Publishing Recaps Comic-Con 2017
New Series Announcements, Eisners, and more!


San Diego, CA (July 25, 2017) – San Diego-based publisher, IDW, was well represented at this year’s Comic-Con International and made some noise, thanks to IDW’s high profile booth signings, in-demand exclusives, and major announcements! Not to mention walking away from the annual Eisner ceremony with awards for Best Anthology – Love is Love, and Best Reality-Based Work – March: Book Three.

As they celebrated the trilogy's conclusion, Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell not only received Eisner Awards for March: Book Three, but also Inkpot Awards for their contributions to the field of comics, before leading hundreds of students, teachers, and fans in an inspiring march through Comic-Con.

Love is Love project organizer, Marc Andreyko, was awarded the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award for his efforts to aid the victims of the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. The benefit anthology raised over $167K for those affected.

Legendary comics creator Walter Simonson, whose Ragnarök is published under IDW, was honored during the ceremony as well, being inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in recognition of his long and outstanding career.

With so many announcements hitting during the biggest trade show of the year, we’ve compiled a handy guide to what exciting news IDW/Top Shelf made at the event.

Goosebumps — This October, encounter monsters old and new in IDW’s comic series from the terrifying world of R.L. Stine’s bestselling series.

Black Crown’s Assassinistas — This 6-issue miniseries from writer Tini Howard (Hack/Slash) and newly minted Will Eisner Hall of Famer Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) packs a punch. Ex-hitwoman Octavia comes out of retirement, dragging her college-aged son and his boyfriend along on her mission to kick some serious ass this December.

Black Crown’s Punks Not Dead — Courtesy of writer David Barnett and artist Martin Simmonds, cross the pond this January for this UK-based tale of Fergie, a boy in search of his father, and his companion, the ghost of The Sex Pistol’s Sid Vicious (obviously).

TMNT/Ghostbusters 2 — The Heroes in a Half Shell and the original ‘busters will reunite for a 5-week crossover event series this November from Erik Burnham, Tom Waltz, and Dan Schoening.

Jem and the Holograms: Dimensions — The new anthology comic set in Jem’s world will premiere this November, with an all-star lineup of rotating creative teams including Jem mainstay Sophie Campbell, plus Kate Leth and Tana Ford joining the jam session.

The X-Files: JFK Disclosure — This two-part special, written by Denton J. Tipton with art by Menton3, will reveal the truth surrounding one of the greatest conspiracies in American history.

Gears of War — The popular video game franchise will return to comics in January 2018, with writer Kurtis Wiebe (Rat Queens) scripting new stories. In addition, IDW will be reprinting the previous Gears of War comics into collections.

Glénat — IDW Publishing and French publisher Glénat are teaming up on a new joint initiative to publish original graphic novels in the U.S. and France, publishing genre graphic novels that will fit into both markets. It kicks off with a new fantasy series, The Highest House, by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, creators of The Unwritten.

30 Days of Night — Fresh art from the upcoming reimagining of the vampire tale set in Alaska was unveiled. From writer/co-creator Steve Niles and artist Piotr Kowalski (Sex), a new take on the modern classic arrives this December.

Star Trek: Discovery — The first details about the comic book tie-in to the upcoming Star Trek TV series were teased, including a Klingon-centric storyline. It will be written by Mike Johnson and Star Trek: Discovery TV writer Kirsten Beyer with art by Tony Shasteen with more details to come about the October launching title.

Visionaries — Hasbro’s Visionaries return to comics was teased from the creative team of writer Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) and artist Fico Ossio (Revolution).

Unicron is coming! — First Strike, the next major Hasbro comic book event from IDW, will see Unicron enter the picture, which can only mean one thing – destruction!
