We have a new update for Kabam's Transformers: Forged to Fight mobile game, this time featuring a new and interesting character: the Sharkticon! The new sharkticon design is quite unique, appearing to take some design cues from Underbite while still being his own design, and certainly different from previous Sharkticon designs.

Check out the new design below, as well as all the information related to the sharkticon's appearance in the game.

It doesn't look like anything or anyone is going to stop the popularity of the utterly bonkers reimagined version of the Transformers vs G.I. Joe crossover that sprang forth from the minds of Tom Scioli and John Barber (and the creative skills of the former), as the complete collection - including the so-called 'movie adaptation' - has just received another, deluxe sized release!

Read on below for the full press release for this past week's Quintessential collection edition of the series, including a bunch of endorsements from various sources, and head here for our database entry on the series!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers vs. G.I. Joe Gets Complete Quintessential Reissue

Tom Scioli’s Acclaimed Transformers vs. G.I. Joe Series Gets Deluxe Package!


“Reading this book is the best possible reminder of how much fun it was to play with your toys as a kid.” – IGN

San Diego, CA (February 1, 2018) – The fan-favorite mashup of toy box essentials, Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE were given a unique, critically acclaimed comic book series published by IDW that took readers by surprise. In a series unlike anything that had come before it, Tom Scioli’s unique storytelling brought the elaborate settings and battles of childhood imaginations to the comic page. Now, at last, the complete series is available in a deluxe hardcover collection; Transformers vs. G.I. Joe: The Quintessential Collection.

Heavily influenced by the “king of comics,” Jack Kirby, Scioli’s sense of design and aesthetic along with Transformers veteran co-writer John Barber won over critics and fans alike; with CBR calling it “Truly unlike anything else on stands right now, Barber and Scioli have made Transformers vs. G.I. Joe one of the most fascinating books on shelves today.”

Collecting all 13 issues of the maxi-series along with the debut #0 issue appearing on Free Comic Book Day 2015, plus the bonkers Transformers vs. G.I. Joe The Movie Adaptation, this hardcover collection has it all. Back matter includes page-by-page commentary by Scioli and Barber for each issue, along with a complete cover gallery!

“It's the hardest I've ever worked,” says Scioli. “There's blood on those pages. I gave everything I had to give. Go from T.H.E. P.I.T. to Cybertron and back again. Read the comic that inspired the movie! I'm already nostalgic for it and you will be, too!”

Transformers vs. G.I. Joe: The Quintessential Collection is available now using ISBN: 978-1631408601.

“Tom Scioli is a master in visual storytelling and it’s never been more apparent here.” – Multiversity Comics

“It’s one of those comics that overwhelms with the sheer creative energy on the page” – The A.V. Club

“Whether you're a Transformers fan, a G.I. Joe fan, or just a fan of retro goodness, this is one for you.” –Comic Book Therapy

“If you asked me to pick my favorite comics of the year, there's not even a question about it: Transformers vs. G.I. Joe would be at the top of the list.” – Comics Alliance

We've just received news from IDW Publishing, via a press release, that their debut for the latest Hasbro universe crossover event Transformers vs Visionaries has performed exceedingly well (surprising what the minimum amount of marketing can do to a book, huh?) in sales, and will see a second print run to be released with the second issue, later this month.

Our review, which you can see here, was less than complimentary on the whole, but if it has made this big an impact on readers, I'm glad someone out there is picking up what Visaggio, Ossio, Cruz, and Lazcano have been laying down! Read more below, and check out the new, accurate but spoilerrific cover will be for the reprint.

Transformers vs. Visionaries #1 Sells Out
at Distributor
Second Printing of the Critically Hailed Debut Coming Soon


San Diego, CA (January 5, 2018) – The Transformers robots may have met their match in the recently launched series TRANSFORMERS VS. VISIONARIES. After teasing their arrival throughout the latter half of 2017, the Visionaries have officially entered the shared Hasbro comic book universe and are taking on the Transformers Robots in Disguise. The debut shocked fans with a dramatic cliffhanger and garnered widespread acclaim, resulting in a sold-out issue at the distributor level and a second printing ordered.

Scripted by Eisner-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) with art by fan-favorite Fico Ossio (Revolution), colors by David Garcia Cruz, and letters by Gilberto Lazcano, this hotly anticipated debut is a can’t-miss, pivotal issue, instantly earning its place in any Transformers and Visionaries fan’s essential collection. It’s the perfect jumping on point for new readers to join in the fun and adventure while also providing longtime fans with some exciting developments in the ongoing saga.

After their home planet of Cybertron is invaded, the Transformers bots encounter unwelcome guests... Refugees from another world, the Visionaries’ startling magical abilities could make them powerful allies… or dangerous enemies. It all starts here with the death of a beloved character!

"It's been amazing seeing the outpouring of love for the story Mags, Fico, and the team have created, as well as the outpouring of love for the dearly departed Kup," said IDW Associate Editor, David Mariotte. "And things are only just getting started. There'll be more action, excitement, and drama to come."

A second printing of the debut issue of Transformers vs. Visionaries #1 (cover art featured here) will arrive on January 31, 2018, the same day issue #2 goes on sale.

Courtesy of Paramount pictures, we have a new press release covering next year's live-action movie release in the Transformers universe, the first spin-off and first one without Michael Bay at the helm - Bumblebee: The Movie!

We have full synopsis, a repeat of the image with the Volkswagen car mode that Bumblebee will take in the movie alongside Hailee Steinfeld, and a couple more credits about the production team. Take a look below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

BUMBLEBEE 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”).

Directed by Travis Knight (“KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS,” “CORALINE”), the film stars Hailee Steinfeld (“EDGE OF SEVENTEEN”), Pamela Adlon (“BETTER THINGS,””LOUIE”), John Cena (“DADDY’S HOME 2,” “TRAINWRECK”), Stephen Schneider (Comedy Central’s “BROAD CITY”), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (“SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”), Jason Drucker (“DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL”), Kenneth Choi (“AMERICAN CRIME STORY”), Ricardo Hoyos (“DEGRASSI: NEXT CLASS”), Abby Quinn (“LANDLINE,” “THE SISTERHOOD OF THE NIGHT”), Rachel Crow (“DEIDRA & LANEY ROB A TRAIN”), and Grace Dzienny (“ZOO”).

BUMBLEBEE WILL BE RELEASED IN THEATERS NATIONWIDE ON DECEMBER 21, 2018

EMI Module – Bee will gain the ability to Evade Ranged Attacks, forcing you to stay within Melee Range and in turn allowing him to generate power with his Signature Ability.

This weekend, we bring you another initiative that Hasbro is taking part in alongside Toys for Tots (as covered here), this time in partnership with ToyBox Tools - a resource created with and by The Autism Project to increase accessibility to toys and playing in general to children with developmental disabilities. Hasbro has joined with the project by contributing in both Transformers: The Last Knight and Transformers: Rescue Bots categories, and the simplified toys that the two lines contain.

Check out more on the initiative below!

Hasbro’s ToyBox Tools Features New Resources Based on Beloved Brands, including MY LITTLE PONY, TRANSFORMERS and BABY ALIVE

ToyBox Tools Initiative Helps Bring the Joy of Play to Children with Developmental Disabilities

PAWTUCKET, R.I.- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), announced today a refresh of its ToyBox Tools website, which was created in collaboration with The Autism Project to help make play more accessible to children with developmental disabilities. ToyBox Tools is a collection of resources for parents, teachers and caregivers to help them engage children in the joy of play.

Through the ToyBox Tools website, www.ToyBoxTools.com, visitors can browse the tools online, and then download and print them for use at home or in the classroom. Resources include:

Playbooks with step-by-step instructions on how to play with select Hasbro toys and games
Wait cards to teach children the skill of waiting while others are taking a turn
Countdown timers to help support the passage of time and number of turns
Playmats that serve as a fun and useful backdrop for play

The resources feature a variety of beloved Hasbro brands, including MY LITTLE PONY, TRANSFORMERS, PLAYSKOOL, BABY ALIVE and HASBRO GAMING. The tools were developed in collaboration with The Autism Project, who has a long-standing philanthropic relationship with the Hasbro Children’s Fund. They were designed to help children with a range of developmental challenges enjoy playtime in a way that’s fun and comfortable, at their own pace. They can be used with any child who needs support.

“We’re thrilled that Hasbro realized that for many children, play doesn’t come naturally, and initiated this solution that’s helping so many families,” said Joanne Quinn, Executive Director of The Autism Project. “This program is spreading the joy of play to all children, and in doing so, helping to foster connections with peers, siblings and other generations that may otherwise have been lost.”

“To fulfill our mission of creating the world’s best play experiences, we need to make play accessible to all children of all abilities,” said Samantha Lomow, Senior Vice President, Hasbro Brands. “I’m proud that ToyBox Tools started as a grassroots project from some of our employees who saw an opportunity to offer a solution to a problem that many families face. Their passion and creativity speak to the values we hold as an organization, and I’m delighted that we’ve expanded the program in collaboration with The Autism Project to offer new resources for families, and use our brands for good.”

Hasbro are no strangers to philanthropic gesture and campaigns, and it looks like they'll be supporting their more generous side once again this year - though with a first-time campaign called Be Fearless Be Kind. The company is joining up with the Toys for Tots scheme, a US Marine Corps foundation that supports families less fortunate and in need through the winter period in particular.

Specifically, Hasbro will be matching all donations made through the foundation: for each toy or game, they will add a second toy or game, up to a total of 1 million toys. There have been reports of some hiccups in the campaign itself, though not related to either Toys for Tots or Hasbro themselves - you can read more on that here - but all seems to have settled pretty quickly. Read more on this new scheme below!


TRIANGLE, Va., Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program and global play and entertainment company, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), announced today a new holiday matching campaign that will bring joy to even more children in need this holiday season. For every new, unwrapped toy or game donated by individuals to any Toys for Tots local campaign through the 2017 holiday season, Hasbro will also donate a new toy or game as part of its BE FEARLESS BE KIND philanthropic initiative, up to one million gifts.

"The holidays can be a trying time for families in need and oftentimes we're low on toys by early December. This gift from Hasbro will help our U.S. Marine Corps reservists and volunteers bring smiles to the faces of so many more children who need our help," said Lieutenant General H.P. Osman, USMC (Ret), President and CEO, Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

A corporate partner for more than 20 years, Hasbro has helped to deliver more than 3.5 million toys and games nationwide through its annual support of Toys for Tots. This year, the company seeks to inspire even more donations through this holiday matching campaign. To find a local Toys for Tots unit and learn more about how to make a donation, please visit: http://www.toysfortots.org/donate/toys.aspx.

"The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and the Toys for Tots Program truly embody what it means to be both fearless and kind, and with such great need in communities throughout the country, their work is more important than ever," said John Frascotti, President of Hasbro. "Through our BE FEARLESS BE KIND initiative, Hasbro hopes to inspire kids to make a difference in the world. We want even more families to feel inspired to donate, knowing their one donation will actually mean two gifts for children in need."

Through the generosity of individuals, organizations and businesses, combined with a dedicated corps of over 35,000 volunteers across the country, Toys for Tots plays an active role in creating a more inclusive world and inspiring others to make a difference in their communities. With the holiday season rapidly approaching, families who struggle to make ends meet seek additional support to provide their children with a little joy during this special time of year.

This holiday, local toy drives will be held in more than 800 communities covering all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands.

BE FEARLESS BE KIND is Hasbro's signature philanthropic initiative, designed to empower kids to have the compassion and courage to stand up for others, to be inclusive and to make a difference in the world. In 2016, the company impacted more than 3.8 million children worldwide through its many philanthropic programs like BE FEARLESS BE KIND and partnerships with organizations like Toys for Tots.

Families or volunteers who have been impacted by Toys for Tots over the years are encouraged to share their stories at: stories.toysfortots.org.

About Toys for Tots Foundation
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity, is the fundraising, funding and support organization for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

Transformers News: Paramount and Hasbro to Produce and Distribute Live Action and Animated Content

Paramount Pictures and Hasbro to Produce and Distribute Live Action and Animated Content Under Five Year Exclusive Relationship

November 03, 2017 08:37 AM Eastern Daylight Time

HOLLYWOOD--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, Inc. today announced that they will be teaming up to produce and distribute content based on Hasbro brands, as well as original stories. The two companies will collaborate on live action and animated films, with Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures and Allspark Animation playing an active role alongside Paramount Pictures in development and production.

This announcement expands upon an existing relationship between the two companies. Hasbro and Paramount have partnered on five Transformers movies to date, as well as two G.I. Joe films, and the first Transformers spinoff, Bumblebee, is slated for December 2018.

"Paramount has been a valuable partner of Hasbro’s for more than a decade, and we’re looking forward to taking our relationship to the next level," said Brian Goldner, Chairman and CEO, Hasbro. "Storytelling, in its many forms, is revolutionizing our business and differentiating Hasbro in all sectors where we operate. We look forward to collaborating with the talented team at Paramount to create powerful new stories for kids, fans and families globally."

While terms of the relationship are not being disclosed, Paramount and Hasbro will partner on financing projects at varying levels of investment, and Paramount will distribute the projects produced during the five year term of this deal worldwide. Paramount and Hasbro will also collaborate on television programming.

"Hasbro has an enormous array of exceptional brands, so this expansion of our relationship is incredibly exciting," said Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO, Jim Gianopulos. "We look forward to working with Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis and the Hasbro and Allspark teams to create extraordinary film properties for all audiences."

Hasbro recently hired Greg Mooradian as president of Allspark Pictures, with responsibility for live action film and television. Allspark Animation, the company’s label for animated film and television content, is led by Hasbro’s Meghan McCarthy. Hasbro acquired Boulder Media in 2016, a leading animation studio based in Dublin, Ireland, to produce its television and film animation. Hasbro Studios, its distribution arm which the company founded in 2009, distributes TV and digital content to more than 190 territories globally. The entertainment division reports to Hasbro’s Chief Content Officer, Stephen Davis.
