Hasbro has given a press release regarding Hasbro Properties Group (HPG, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro, Inc.) and how they plan on elevating the proporties on a global scale amoungst other marketing leaders. The following has been taken from Hasbro's recent press release

PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 20, 2006--Hasbro Properties Group (HPG), the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS), will arrive at Licensing 2006 International with new, ground-breaking licensing programs that raise the industry bar in key consumer products and lifestyle categories such as entertainment, direct-to-retail, digital gaming, and publishing.

"We have an incredibly strong and diverse lineup of licensed programs coming to market in 2006 and beyond," said Jane Ritson-Parsons, president of the Hasbro Properties Group. "Our goal has been to identify and dominate key licensing channels that will further engrain our properties into the lifestyles of consumers of all ages around the world and we have certainly accomplished that by forging relationships with market leaders such as CVS Corporation, HarperCollins, Scholastic, American Greetings, Paramount Pictures, McDonald's, RealNetworks and Activision. Consumers can look forward to interacting with their favorite toy and game experiences in many exciting new ways this year."

Supreme Unicron of Trans-Europe Express Group contacted Hasbro Netherlands about the situation of Transformers in Holland. Hasbro Netherlands replied to Supreme Unicron's inquest with the following information:

  • The TF Classics line will be released in the beginning of 2007.


  • The Titanium figures will not be released in the Netherlands.


  • There is no show on Dutch TV due to poor ratings for the recent series.


  • Toy sales have been bad for the larger toys, which is why stores stopped stocking them.


  • As Transformers is not 'big' in Holland, they don't promote it that much (it is not financially worth it), but this will change next year because "2007 must become THE Transformers year"

    Beastbot X of The 2005 Boards has been kind enough to post a discription of the contents of the laterst Transformers Collectors Club Newsletter.

    As expected the Newsletter contains further information on the Transformers Classics line, as well as toy and comic info including part 3 of Cub Comic story "Revelations". Read the discription here, but be warned there are SPOILERS!

    ----------------------------------------------------

    NOTE FROM SEIBERTRON: Before the question pops up, Bumblebee doesn't have the IDW transformation look in robot mode as someone has already mentioned. The roof of the futuristic looking small car is indeed his chest and the front windshield is indeed where his gut is. The trunk / rear of the car folds back behind his head à la G1 Throttlebot Goldbug (who, for the newcomers, was the reincarnation of G1 Bumblebee in 1987). The feet even have the typical headlights where they should be but in a nice move the hood of the car folds up to cover his shins. Not sure what I think about the white dual stripes that go over the hood of the car. It looks good. There's a little scooter or something that comes out of his trunk. Hopefully it can either detach or be put back into the trunk, or maybe it becomes his gun. The robot's head is probably the most cartoon looking head ever. I was always a big fan of the Pretender / Legends Bumblebee head ... this one definitely tops that.
