Misc OTFCC rumors

With OTFCC (Official Transformers Brand Collectors Convention) quickly approaching, I thought I´d share with you great fans some of the rumors that´ve been hitting my inbox lately.

These are all rumors, they´re not confirmed

The 2004 OTFCC may be held in Chicago (or a location near Chicago) again next year. If this is true (again, IF) it would be no doubt upset fans in the Eastern US (As the West Coast will host the returning BotCon). In any event, we only have a week until this one is confirmed or debunked.

Hasbro may be selling Unicron at this year´s OTFCC. The rumored price tag is 49.99 (plus applicable sales tax). This would be your first chance to buy the Unicron figure (legally) in the US. However, if this rumor were true, one would assume that Hasbro and Glen Hallit would have been advertising this in advance. After all, that´s one REALLY BIG incentive to attend the convention.

Thanks for reading, and remember to look for the crew at OTFCC next week.

GameSpot has just updated their website with new information on the Transformers Armada Video Game for PS2! The game has been pushed back to a second quarter release date in 2004, it will be officially titled Transformers Armada: Prelude to Energon (perhaps a Transformers Energon game is in the works as well?), and from looking at the screens will push the PS2´s limits with beautifully rendered environments.

Hasbro Comes to Comic-Con with Exciting Toy Line, Comic Books, Cine-Manga(TM) and All-New Video Game

TRANSFORMERS is one of the most popular brands in the toy and entertainment industry and Hasbro Consumer Products Worldwide, the licensing arm of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE:HAS), is working with leading publishing companies to bring fans innovative ways to experience the saga of the AUTOBOTS versus the DECEPTICONS. Many published works, including a best-selling comic book series from Dreamwave, Cine-Manga(TM) from TOKYOPOP, a new video game from Atari and trading cards from Fleer, are among the items being showcased along with Hasbro's action figure line at Comic-Con International, the world's largest comic book convention, happening here from July 17-20 at the San Diego Convention Center.

"We have an incredibly devoted fan base for TRANSFORMERS and are fortunate to be working with some of the world's leading companies in expanding the ways that fans can experience the TRANSFORMERS saga," said Tom Klusaritz, Vice President of Publishing for Hasbro Consumer Products Worldwide. "The depth of the property has enabled us to develop compelling characters and storylines that lend themselves to a variety of publishing platforms, from comic books and other illustrated works to video games."

Since Dreamwave Productions' TRANSFORMERS comic book series was introduced last year, it has consistently been a best seller. Next month, Dreamwave will release a special six-issue TRANSFORMERS/G.I. JOE "crossover" comic book series that teams up the evil DECEPTICON forces and COBRA COMMANDER to battle the AUTOBOT warriors and G.I. JOE team. This series complements Dreamwave's continuing collections based on TRANSFORMERS ARMADA, TRANSFORMERS: Generation 1, TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE and TRANSFORMER: THE WAR WITHIN.

Manga is one of the hottest trends in publishing and Hasbro Consumer Products has reached an agreement in principle with TOKYOPOP Inc., the leading U.S. manga publisher, to release a Cine-Manga(TM) series, based on the TRANSFORMERS ARMADA saga, which is expected to be available beginning in October.

Atari, Inc. announced plans to develop a game exclusively for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system. TRANSFORMERS ARMADA: PRELUDE TO ENERGON, which is slated for a spring 2004 release, is a revolutionary third-person 3-D action/adventure game.

Hasbro Consumer Products has also signed on Fleer Trading Cards to design and manufacture a line of traditional and 3-Dimensional trading cards, which are expected to be available at retail beginning this fall. The initial line will focus on the the TRANSFORMERS ARMADA television show currently airing on Cartoon Network, with subsequent lines to feature the rich, 20-year history of the TRANSFORMERS brand, as well as future programs and comic book offerings.

Hasbro will also display its best-selling 2003 action figure line at booth #3515, which will feature UNICRON, the newest TRANSFORMERS figure to reach retail. The highly anticipated figure marks the return of the most evil TRANSFORMERS characters ever. UNICRON will also be featured in new episodes of the animated program on Cartoon Network, "TRANSFORMERS ARMADA: THE UNICRON BATTLES."

Hasbro Consumer Products Worldwide is the licensing and promotions arm of the Hasbro Properties Group, which develops and expands Hasbro, Inc.'s core brands, such as G.I. JOE, TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, MONOPOLY and CANDY LAND, into a wide variety of entertainment and consumer categories.

Hasbro is a worldwide leader in children's and family leisure time entertainment products and services, including the design, manufacture and marketing of games and toys ranging from traditional to high-tech. Both internationally and in the U.S., its PLAYSKOOL, TONKA, MILTON BRADLEY, PARKER BROTHERS, TIGER, and WIZARDS OF THE COAST brands and products provide the highest quality and most recognizable play experiences in the world.

They´ve got pics of quite a few upcoming figures, including more BW/BM repaints and the long rumored RiD Optimus Prime/Ultra Magnus figures. The ones shown are just re-packaged RiD figures, the actual ones will most likely be repainted in some way.
