FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HASBRO “ROLLS OUT” TRANSFORMERS HALL OF FAME
TRANSFORMERS Fans Will Participate in Selecting One Robot for the Class of 2010

Pawtucket, R.I. (March 26, 2010) — After more than 25 years of “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” action, Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) is announcing the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame that will honor both “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” and those influential in creating and building this iconic entertainment brand.

Heroic AUTOBOTS OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE, as well as evil DECEPTICONS MEGATRON and STARSCREAM, will be the first robots honored with admission as chosen by Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame internal panel of judges. TRANSFORMERS fans around the world will determine a fifth robot to join the inaugural class via voting on the Transformers.com website starting on Monday, May 10, 2010. The winning robot will be revealed Saturday night, June 26, 2010 in Orlando, FL at the annual TRANSFORMERS convention known as “BotCon” when the entire Class of 2010 will be officially inducted.

“The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame celebrates a global entertainment property that has sparked the imagination of millions of kids over the past 26 years and remains one of the world’s most iconic brands,” said Greg Lombardo, senior director of marketing for TRANSFORMERS. “Starting in 2010, Hasbro will annually honor fans’ most-loved characters from the world of CYBERTRON as well as those individuals who have helped shape a brand that has spawned an army of popular action figures, multiple animated series and two blockbuster live action movies that set worldwide box office records.”

First introduced in 1984 by Hasbro and Takara as a toy line, the TRANSFORMERS brand
has provided kids with hours of MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE fun with their action figures that convert from robot to vehicles and back again. Legions of boys around the world grew up creating fantastic adventures and battles set on both the planet CYBERTRON and Earth that featured the “good-guy” AUTOBOTS and the “bad-guy” DECEPTICONS. Since then, more than 7500 robots have been introduced and are now eligible to earn a slot in the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame’s inaugural class.

We've had a lot of rumors this month, and another one has come out of the pipes. While rumors tend to bring happiness along with them, this one has the opposite effect. We regretfully inform everyone that Hasbro might have just shut down the Transformers Animated toy line for good. As reported by TFormers, one of their members got a response from Hasbro in regards to Transformers Animated inquiries. This was the response.

Thank you for contacting Hasbro, Inc. regarding the Transformers Animated Blackout and Thundercracker. We appreciate your interest in our company and products.

Regrettably, both products have recently been discontinued. We are, therefore, unable to assist you in identifying retail markets which may still have this product in inventory nor do we have any available for direct sale.

Although they are no longer in our current product line, you may still be able to find them in retail stores. Some of the retail stores that carry Hasbro products include Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Kmart, and Target.

We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope you and your family will enjoy Hasbro products for many years to come.


Now what exactly does this mean for us? Animated has been discontinued since the spring of 2009. The remaining figures we were anticipating were meant to be store exclusives, much like Toys 'R' Us with Arcee and Cybertron Mode Ratchet. Does this also mean that the presumed store exclusives have been discontinued?

The remaining Hasbro Animated figures are listed below.

Thundercracker
Blackout
Rodimus Minor
Ironhide
Vortex Blurr
Fugitive Waspinator
Wingblade Optimus Prime
Toxic Oil Slick
Mudbuster Bulkhead
Hydrodive Bumblebee
Golfire Grimlock

Whether there is truth to this rumor or simply a misunderstanding, we'll be the first ones to update everyone on the official confirmation. What's your opinion on the situation? Feel free to sound off your opinion in the Energon Pub!

For those interested in the upcoming Japanese cartoon version of Animated, TFW2005 member DrillBit has scanned and translated the latest edition of Figure-Oh magazine. You can see his original post by clicking here but we've provided you with some highlights.

The first four episodes have been announced. The first three are the original three part miniseries known in the United States as "Transform and Roll Out" but these episodes are now known as "New Chapter! Transformers," "Hero, The name is Autobot" and "Secret of the Allspark," respectively. The fourth episode to be shown will be "Operation Soundwave," which was titled "Sound and Fury" in the US and actually was the tenth episode shown here. The placement of this episode fourth would seem to raise some continuity issues, especially involving Megatron's status at that point so it will be interesting to see if any editing is done to ease that.

Here is the official voice cast roster for the Japanese version of the cartoon. You might recall that Ironhide is simply Bulkhead's Japanese name. Longtime TF cartoon fans will recognize a few of these names because of their roles in past series such as the Japanese dubs of Beast Wars, Armada and Energon.

Optimus Prime: Takahashi Hiroki
Bumblebee: Kishio Daisuke
Ratchet: Okawa Toru
Ironhide: Miyake Kenta
Prowl: Yusa Kouji
Ultramagnus: Ginga Banjo
Sentinel: Suwabe Junichi
Teletraan I: Takagaki Ayahi

Megatron: Wakamoto Norio
Starscream: Yamanoi Jin
Blitzwing: Cho (Nagashima Shigeru)
Lugnut: Itou Kentaro
Blackarachnia: Uzuki Ryoka

Sari: Akesaka Satomi
Professor Sumdac: Nagasako Takashi
Captain Fanzone: Tobita Nobuo

We'd like to thank Sharon Dean, appearances manager of Michael McConnohie for sending us this interesting info regarding an upcoming convention appearance for him. Transformers fans know him the best as the voice of Tracks and Cosmos on the G1 Sunbow Transformers cartoon, although he later did voice acting, writing and directing work for the Transformers: R.I.D. series as well. As some of you will remember, Michael was also a guest at BotCon 09 in Pasadena, CA.

MICHAEL McCONNOHIE - Transformers writer, director and voice of Tracks / Cosmos / Hotshot / Ironhide, will be a guest at ARMAGEDDON EXPO in New Zealand March / April 2010.

Courtesy of Japanese toy retailer Ami Ami we're happy to bring you images of a new upcoming product offering from Takara.

While most of the new Japanese Animated figures are merely repainted versions of their US counterparts, a new sub-line has apparently been launched which is known as "Diablock."

As you will see in the pictures, Diablock toys seemed aimed at the LEGO collector crowd and bear some similarity to the Hasbro BTR (Built to Rule) line of a few years ago.

These figures do in fact transform from robot to vehicle, and are slated for a June 4th release in Japan.

Here are the preorder pages, complete with images of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.
