Last month, we posted images here of the War Within Grimlock, which is a SDCC exclusive. Diamond Select Toys & Shop AFX, which is producing the bust, has now provided a press release, which describes the statue and character bio.



DST and internet retailer Action Figure Xpress are pleased to announce the latest exclusive available at this year’s San Diego Comic Con: the kick-butt Transformers “The War Within” Grimlock Bust! This exclusive will be limited to just 600 pieces, so head over to and make sure to order today!

Originally recruited by the Decepticons of ancient Cybertron, Grimlock became disgusted with Megatron’s brutality and joined the Autobots. A consummate warrior and strategist, Grimlock masks a surprising intellect behind his simplistic speech patterns. Though he could bring a huge array of weapons to any fight, he prefers close quarter combat with his enemies, wielding his Energon sword, or simply crushing his enemies with his bare servos. This “The War Within” Grimlock bust is limited to only 600 pieces and was sculpted by Art Asylum.

Hasbro has given their official Press Release for the Transformers Movie merchandise about to be released world wide. The following has been taken directly from the Press Release.

"MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE" Merchandise Invades Stores Worldwide in Anticipation of This Summer's Live-Action TRANSFORMERS Movie

Wide range of TRANSFORMERS toys, games and consumer products arrive at retail on June 2, 2007

PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 31, 2007--This summer, Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) Inc.'s legendary TRANSFORMERS robots "star" in their first-ever live-action feature film, produced by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures. While TRANSFORMERS fans will have to wait until July 4 to see the movie, they can start to experience the expanded world of TRANSFORMERS on Saturday, June 2 when Hasbro and its more than 225 licensees launch hundreds of new TRANSFORMERS toys, games, and consumer products at stores nationwide.

The TRANSFORMERS movie line, which can currently be previewed at, includes, of course, a legion of new action figures featuring the robots from the movies and an awesome voice changer helmet, in addition to products from leading companies such as Activision, HarperCollins, Random House and Extreme Concepts.

"Together with our licensees, Hasbro has created a wide range of innovative toys, games and consumer products that truly deliver on the brand's 'MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE' essence, " said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's Chief Operating Officer and Executive Producer on the film. "The full line of merchandise will be enjoyed by both our long-time fans who have loved TRANSFORMERS for more than 20 years as well as the new fans who are just now discovering the franchise through this summer's most anticipated movie."

TRANSFORMERS is directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock, Bad Boys I and II) and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. In their efforts to help the humans, the AUTOBOTS meet up with an unsuspecting teen, played by Shia LaBeouf (Disturbia, Holes and Even Stevens), who finds himself in the middle of an intergalactic war being waged on our planet. The movie also stars Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas), Tyrese Gibson (Annapolis, 2 Fast 2 Furious), Megan Fox (Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen), John Turturro and Jon Voight.

Descriptions of some of the TRANSFORMERS toys, games and other products are listed below, all of which will go on sale June 2, 2007.

(Approximate Retail Price: $29.99; Ages: 5 & Up)

The OPTIMUS PRIME VOICE CHANGER HELMET, authentically detailed to look like the character in the movie, allows kids to imitate OPTIMUS PRIME and sound like a TRANSFORMERS robot for the first time! The OPTIMUS PRIME VOICE CHANGER HELMET features 3 modes:

VOICE CHANGER: Make your voice sound like a robot!
BATTLE PHRASES: OPTIMUS PRIME speaks iconic phrases
CONVERSION SOUNDS: Hear OPTIMUS PRIME change from a truck to a robot and back!

(Approximate retail Price: $29.99; Ages: 5 & up)

Quickly changing from either STARSCREAM'S jet or OPTIMUS PRIME'S truck, these powerful TRANSFORMERS ARM BLASTERS offer kids the unique opportunity to role-play the galactic battle which AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS have waged for centuries! One pull changes the toy from vehicle mode to blaster mode, unleashing the power of a NERF dart blaster. OPTIMUS PRIME comes with 3 Nerf darts and STARSCREAM comes with 4 Nerf darts.

(Approximate Retail Price: $39.99; Ages: 5 & up)

It's Prime time! OPTIMUS PRIME and MEGATRON figures feature lights and sounds in vehicle and robot modes. Additionally, the figures feature new "Automorph Technology", a gearing mechanism that allows some parts to move automatically. The Leader scale includes OPTIMUS PRIME and MEGATRON figures.

(Approximate Retail Price: $9.99 - $19.99; Ages: 5 & up)

The fun and excitement of 2007's live-action film is placed in kids' hands with the all-new TRANSFORMERS MOVIE action figures.

(Approximate retail price $ 19.99; Ages: 7 & up; Players: 2)

Battle head-to-head as MEGATRON or OPTIMUS PRIME robots! Each player takes control of a hand held robot, knocking your opponent off its base to win a battle. Be the first player to win five battles and you win the game.

TRANSFORMERS 3D Battle-Card Game
(Approximate retail price: $3.99: Ages: 8 & up)

Build 'em! Battle 'em! The TRANSFORMERS 3D battle-card game lets you take total control of your favorite AUTOBOT and DECEPTICON characters. Crack open a pack and start building your 'bots -- or build them in vehicle form, using the same set of pieces. Then, battle away because even though they're fun to put together, they're even more fun to play with. Each pack comes with four randomly inserted constructible cards (enough to build two characters), two stats cards, and token card.


Hasbro's licensing division, HPG, has inked more than 225 deals in 70 countries resulting in a tremendous lineup of goods that truly embrace the "MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE" theme of the brand. Beginning on June 2, fans of all ages will find a wide range of highly innovative, hip and fun TRANSFORMERS-licensed products ranging from apparel to publishing, digital media, home decor, food and beverage, health and beauty, automotive, and cards/stationery.

Quite literally, this could very well be the best press kit ever (at least in the eyes of a Transformers fan).

I couldn't believe how generous Hasbro was to send this MASSIVE "press kit" to today that included a large sampling of the products that will be available on June 2nd, 2007, in stores nationwide. Simply put: this thing is HUGE! It makes the AllSpark look like a Rubik's Cube. While I'm not quite sure where I'm going to put all of this stuff (those of you who have been to my apartment will know my dilemma), I thought I'd at least share some pictures of what I consider to be the best press kit that I've ever seen.

I can't say thank you enough times to Hunter PR and Hasbro so I'll just do what I do best and that's provide you guys with information about these products and this press kit as well as a bunch of pictures to help all of you get excited about this weekend's release of the movie products.

I've got to talk about the box itself ... it just has to be mentioned! It's beautiful! Hasbro's PR company, Hunter Public Relations (Hunter PR), has gone out of their way to spoil the people in the Transformers hobby who own the websites that bring you your daily (or hourly in some cases) doses of Transformers news and entertainment on a daily basis. I included some comparison pictures of Optimus Prime and Megatron from G1 to give all of you some scale reference just to see how big this box is. Hunter PR could've just shipped all of these products in a generic cardboard box, but instead, they transformed the box itself into a marketing device. I'm sure it caught the eyes of a few people at UPS. It certainly caught the eyes of about a dozen people while I was on my way home from UPS this evening with this giant frikkin' box (even got to hand out the ol' business card a couple of times after a few conversations about the box which lead to conversations about the movie).

Here's the list of movie related items that were included in this phenomenal "press kit" (which could very well be one of the most unique collectibles that I now have in my collection):

  • Lithographs of Bumblebee and Barricade that includes a special message from Joe Moscone, one of's contacts at Hunter PR.
  • Robot Fighters game featuring Optimus Prime and Megatron
  • Optimus Prime Voice Changer - no incriminating pictures of me yet wearing the helmet but wait until after the bar outting at Botcon! ;)
  • "Optimash Prime" Mr. Potato Head figure
  • Deluxe Class Bonecrusher and Swindle
  • "Transformers: Ghost of Yesterday" Prequel Novel by Alan Dean Foster
  • T-Shirt featuring Barricade's police logo
  • Small projector toy that shines an image of Optimus Prime (from Basic Fun)
  • An updated version of the press kit we received at Toy Fair 2007. Includes all of the press releases that have been released to date. Love this kit, glad I've got two now!
  • IDW's Official Movie Prequel #3
  • Decepticon movie logo magnet
  • Optimus Prime "Battle Rig Blaster"
  • Leader Class Megatron (The icing on the cake: I would've been thrilled if this is all that they had sent though I'm definitely happy they went beyond the call of duty so that I could promote some of these other products). And just so all of you know that I haven't been "bought out", I still think Movie Megatron sucks but that doesn't stop me from being extremely excited about the movie and some of the other high points such as Optimus Prime, Spike and the classic premise of the Chevy Camaro versus the Ford Mustang).
  • 3D Battle Card Game "Sample Pack" ... looks like mine is Jetfire though I haven't opened it yet to see how this thing works yet.

You can view the full gallery of this press kit at /movie/gallery.php?id=36

And no, those aren't WSTFs ...

Snack manufacturer Red Mill Snack Foods has teamed up with Hasbro to support the launch of this summer's Transformers film.

Red Mill's Transform-A-Snack is to be the exclusive snack partner of the live-action Transformers film from Dreamworks and Paramount, which is released around the globe this July.

The Steven Spielberg directed film aims to capitalise on young men's nostalgia for Transformers, a popular cartoon and toy franchise from the 1980s. The online trailer for the film has become the most downloaded movie trailer in Yahoo!'s history.

As well as being the exclusive snack partner, Transform-A-Snack will run an on-pack promotion, offering consumers the chance to win a holiday to Los Angeles, with a tour of the Paramount studios. Runner-up prizes include Xbox 360 consoles, Optimus Prime voice-changers, and other Hasbro Transformer toys.

The Transform-A-Snack range is also to be revamped to coincide with the deal. A new beef flavour will be added to the range, and from next month a Spicy flavoured multipack will be rolled out.

Pack sizes will remain the same for single bags of Transform-A-Snack - 30g retailing at 20p. Multipacks contain seven 20g bags, with one of these bags forming an introductory offer of one extra bag free. These packs have a recommended retail price of 99p.

Transform-A-Snack was first introduced by Red Mill 15 years ago and is especially popular with 8 to 13-year-olds. All snacks are baked rather than fried, and are suitable for vegetarians.
