Hasbro has released a new Press Release regarding the upcoming Mini-Con 3 packs ...

New TRANSFORMERS Classic MINI-CON 3-Pack images

Transformers.com is pleased to release the product images of the first wave of Classic MINI-CONS (Assortment 82416), which are part of the Classics program that pays tribute to the rich history of the TRANSFORMERS saga. These 3-packs feature the DINOBOTS, the NIGHT RESCUE TEAM, and the Demolition Team. These 3-packs are expected at retailers throughout the U.S. in late November and have a suggested retail price of $6.99.

The DINOBOTS fight where others fear to go. Adventurers through and through, KNOCKDOWN, TERRORSAUR and SWOOP are more at home in the thickest, most poisonous jungles of the galaxy than they are in the comfortable machine cities of CYBERTRON. When a mission requires animal instincts, sure feet and a laser-proof hide, the DINOBOTS are the ones to call.

Mini-Con Dinobots

The NIGHT RESCUE TEAM features STRONGARM, DIVEBOMB and FIREBOT—three young and brave AUTOBOTS fresh out of primary programming and too inexperienced to ever be afraid. When there are other robots in danger, and nothing will save them except a foolish charge into the dangerous and unknown, it's always the Night Rescue Team that gets called in. Their motto: “We bring light to the darkness”

Mini-Con Dinobots

If it can be built, the DECEPTICON Demolition Team of WIDELOAD, SLEDGE and BROADSIDE can bring it down. Every member of the team is an expert engineer, specializing in weakening and destroying the foundation of any structure they encounter. Before any important battle, you'll find the Demolition Team on site, tunneling beneath enemy fortifications.

SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT UNVEILS SECOND COVER ART IMAGE FOR TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE 20TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION DVD

Second Image Of “Transforming” Cover By Legendary Artist Don Figueroa Revealed For The First Time

New York, New York, August 15, 2006 — Since SONY BMG Music Entertainment announced the November 7th release of TRANSFORMERS: The Movie 20th Anniversary Special Edition DVD¸ fans have been buzzing with anticipation about the details of the two-disc set.

At Comic-Con 2006, fans were told that the DVD’s collectibility would extend to the packaging itself with a “transforming” image. SONY BMG commissioned fan-favorite TRANSFORMERS artist Don Figueroa to create the imagery for the special cover, and displayed for the first time the art featuring Optimus Prime appropriately situated in a position of prominence. Joining the Autobot leader are Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream, Blaster and more of the most popular TRANSFORMERS characters.

Today, SONY BMG is revealing the second Don Figueroa image that will comprise the “transforming” artwork. In this image, Hot Rod – as he transforms into Rodimus Prime – is grasping the Matrix of Leadership as it lights the Autobots’ darkest hour. Above, Unicron begins to destruct, while Galvatron, Arcee and Springer look on.

For the 20th anniversary edition DVD, Sony BMG Home Entertainment completely re-mastered and color-corrected the film and will present Optimus Prime, Megatron and the rest of the star-studded Autobots and Decepticons in true splendor through three distinct versions: 16x9 Widescreen presentation, the Autobot Matrix of Knowledge presentation featuring trivia and fun facts about the movie itself; and a full-screen edition.

To further commemorate the 20th anniversary of the film, SONY BMG is providing fans with some extra-celebratory content that lets them track back to the true origins of the TRANSFORMERS. After careful consideration and preparation, Sony BMG has scoured the archives for the best TRANSFORMERS-related footage available, and the DVD will include the original commercials for the toy line and movie -- allowing viewers to see how and where the phenomenon began.

TRANSFORMERS: The Movie features the voice of Orson Welles in his final role, as well as stars Eric Idle, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Casey Kasem, Robert Stack, John Moschitta, Peter Cullen, and Frank Welker. The DVD also features a winning soundtrack featuring the iconic theme "The TRANSFORMERS" performed by Lion, and the popular "The Touch," performed by Stan Bush. The movie, set in 2005, chronicles the efforts of the heroic Autobots to defend their home of Cybertron from the evil Decepticons and Unicron, a huge robotic creature that devours planets.

For more information and regular updates on TRANSFORMERS: The Movie 20th Anniversary Special Edition DVD log onto TRANSFORMERSthemovieDVD.com. New information will be posted each Tuesday leading up to the November 7th release as part of SONY BMG’s “Transformers Tuesday” campaign.

Hasbro.com have updated their Transformers content to include an inpackage image, bio and product information for of the forthcoming Costco Exclusive Cybertron Optimus Prime and Wing Saber 2-pack.

The product information and bio read as follows:

Optimus Prime and Wing Saber Costco Exclusive

This special two-pack is available only at Costco beginning in early September for a suggested retail price of $35.99. It includes TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON Leader Class OPTIMUS PRIME and Ultra Class WING SABER along with a DVD of TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON Episode 30: “United.” In this episode, OPTIMUS PRIME and WING SABER link to form Sonic Wing Mode for the first time during the series.

During the desperate final battle to destroy UNICRON nearly ten years ago, WING SABER and OPTIMUS PRIME became fast friends. It was there, within the depths of the planet-sized UNICRON that they first discovered their ability to combine into the powerful Sonic Wing Mode.

Since then, the two warriors have grown apart. OPTIMUS PRIME is a born leader, committed to leading the AUTOBOTS on CYBERTRON and trying to build a new peace. He never quite got used to his friend's cavalier attitude towards rules, but when WING SABER rejoined the AUTOBOTS for the fight against GALVATRON, no one was more glad to see him than OPTIMUS PRIME. Visit the Transformers Character Bios section for more character details and technical data on OPTIMUS PRIME and WING SABER.

Each character features lights and sounds and comes with a CYBER PLANET KEY that reveals hidden features.
