KB Toys is going out of business, victim of the economy. Here are some of the most recent news articles about this situation ...

KB Toys Succumbs to Holiday Slump
New York Times - December 11, 2008, 10:47 am

The anemic holiday shopping season has already taken its toll on one major retailer: KB Toys, the toy chain, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Delaware, saying in court documents that it plans to hold going-out-of-business sales at its hundreds of stores.

KB Toys to Liquidate
Playthings.com, 12/11/2008 9:38:00 AM

The move was the result of a "sudden and sharp decline in consumer sales due to macro-economic concerns," according to the company’s court filings, and in particular pointed to a nearly 20 percent drop in same-store sales between Oct. 5, 2008, and Dec. 8, 2008. In the previous eight months of its fiscal year, same store sales had been up 0.36 percent.

KB Toys Files Bankruptcy, Citing ‘Sudden’ Sales Drop
Bloomberg.com - December 11, 2008 11:16 EST

KB Toys Inc., the 86-year-old toy retailer, filed for bankruptcy three years after leaving court protection, blaming a cash crisis caused by a “sudden” drop in sales at its 277 stores.

HASBRO- I know you have been patiently waiting, salivating for the answers, and good news, our submitted questions have been returned answered! We are privileged to be able to participate in the HASBRO Question and Answer, and we as collectors should be happy to know HASBRO hears our questions, and offers us answers.

Our Questions and Answers for December.

1.) Since the Universe toyline spans TF history, is there any chance of seeing a Transtech figure, or another "figure that never was"/"Lost Figure"? A "What Might Have Been" segment of the Timeline could be interesting to say the least.

HASBRO- It would definitely be interesting to see some of those concepts that didn't make it off the drawing board as a real toy, and the Universe line would be a great place to showcase it. In the immediate future we've got a whole list of other characters that are a little higher on the priority list, but you never know. We like to revisit these old concepts from time to time and if there's a great design we haven't used there is a good
chance it will see the light of day eventually.


2.) Any more Universe Ultras in the works? Are there any particular character(s) that you have been thinking would be a great fit for that particular size?


HASBRO- The team is really concentrating on Transformers Revenge of the Fallen product right now. Because of that, we have not been developing any further Universe Ultra items. However, there are members of the design team who would like to find space for more tanks, but currently nothing is definite.


3.) Most characters in the TF universe are male, but there were a few fem-bots in the 1980s cartoon as well. Will we be seeing any of them in the universe toy line?

HASBRO-For 2009, there are currently no "female" bots planned. However, we do have Arcee in the Animated line and you never know what could appear in Movie 2!

4.) Can you explain the typical pipeline for a toy from concept to finished product, including time & constraints, how many are produced, planning for repaints, etc.? A book illustrating this subject (with many images ) would be a very sought after collectible in the community.

HASBRO- Most items take 12-14 months from concept to store shelf. Hasbro does not discuss numbers or processes, however you can be assured that Hasbro and Takara/Tomy put a lot of love in each design.

5.) What is the hook for on Universe Galvatron's shoulder (the piece is gray and unfolds from another purple folding piece) ? And the fold out shoulder 'legs/feet'? Can you show us the conceptualized use of these features?


HASBRO- Initially, Galvatron was being designed as a triple changer and was actually going to be in a larger class. But once the decision was made to put Galvatron in Deluxe, his third "walker tank" mode was dropped. Because of molding reasons we had to leave some of those extra pieces in there. Here's the initial sketch and idea for the third mode. (see attached)

transformersclub.com- S. Trent Troop and Greg Sepelak unveil the story of "Dungeons And Dinobots" for TFCC club members to login and download. Another 'Shattered Universe' story, the plot is described below:

"The Ark may be grounded, but there's a new challenge before the Heroic Decepticons. The exiled mad genius known as Wheeljack has finally perfected a means of duplicating Grimlock's Artificial Intelligence matrix and he's built a horde of Dinobots to unleash against Autobot and Decepticon alike! When the toothed terrors go rogue both sides scramble to recover them. Two teams; Cliffjumper and Sideswipe on one and Rodimus and Blurr on the other, find mystery, adventure and peril in the depths of the Shattered Cybertron during their pursuit of the wayward Grimlock. But what awaits them in the labyrinth is far more dangerous than any Dinobot... and it does not wish to be found."

Wizard has put an exclusive interview up on their site with Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner, that was conducted by ToyFare. Goldner answer questions in regards to his work and the Transformers Movie and GI Joe movie franchise. The relationship between Hasbro and Hollywood. And what the future might hold.

You read the complete interview at the following link.

"Well at Hasbro, we are very focused on reimagining and reinventing Hasbro brands. For some of our properties, getting our brands onto the big screen was an early objective of ours as we began to work to turn the company around back in the early 2000s. The brand that we had first in mind for this was G.I. Joe, then Transformers. It just turns out that Transformers got to the big screen before G.I. Joe".
