In the Q&A section of the conference call, Analyst Drew Crum from Stifel Financial Corp. asked "Any update on a Transformers sequel film?"

Here is Brian Goldner's response

Sure. Our plan right now with the studio and film makers, you may have read something about some writers being hired. We have in fact brought in a to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers many we think there's any number of stories to be told. It's a brand that's been around for 30 years with amazing Cannon and mythology. We would expect the sequel to transformer movie to happen in 2017.


Hasbro shares are up 12.38% to $74.06 since it's close of $65.89 on Friday reaching a new record high since the announcements of their 2015 Q1 Earnings this morning and adding more then $700 Million to the company's market valuations!

Would anyone else care to argue with the FACT that corporate greed and shareholder dividends are not the reason for insane price increases with the Transformers brand since 2007?

Or are you sticking with the material price BS that they use to rebuff anyone who asks? I can tell you first hand that is a LIE. Why? Because I run the AP department of one of the worlds largest plastics injection molders and I have been doing so for almost ten years. I see the prices of EVERYTHING that comes in and out of this facility. And resin has not increased much, and in some cases has went down, since 2010. Let alone mold costs or salaries for the average engineer or CAD design tech.

So, tell us another lie Hasbro.......

Well, their price increase was about 5%, so why is this a revelation?

Keep this up and by 2020 we will be paying 19.99 for a deluxe, just so we can have the honor of lining the pockets of the upper management of Hasbro.

if they want the movie released by then then they should be working on it already.

Eeeechh - another bayverse nightmare? And another three quarters or so of Bumblebee repaints clotting store shelves with no one buying, and Hasbro blaming US for not wanting that garbage....

Ignore him he exaggerates on things like this.



Everything's prices increase hell for example there was this restaurant in my town that used to sell Hot dogs for 25 cents in homage of the old times yet they recently increased the price from at first 75 cents to a dollar and 25 cents.

My adrenaline started increasing when I read this title. I, for some reason, have an urge to give story ideas to Hasbro. But, I have doubts. Too many doubts. :BANG_HEAD:

I knew TF5 was inevitable, but the announcement still filled me with dread.

If the quote from transwiki is correct, even Aaron Archer lost his hair because of the runaway prices of raw materials which affected most probably the sizes/scales of subsequent releases. Maybe Mr. Archer knows something we don't?

Since Combiner Wars deluxes already jumped to $19.99 at TRU 2 weeks ago, all we're really waiting on 'til 2020 is the power of hindsight. Hasn't affected other Generations Deluxes, and other stores haven't caught up yet; Meijers has them on sale for $14 or so, meaning there are literally none on the pegs, so TRU sure did them a favor, huh?

I'm more inclined to agree with whoever said that North American prices are finally creeping up to match those in the rest of the world. Don't blame Hasbro, cuz our REAL enemy is the Trans-Pacific-Partnership! Rise up and protest bad trade deals!!!

Somewhat old news but I heard that domestic prices of MP 10 (Opimus Prime) Hasbro version was waaaaaaaaaaaaay below what it actually cost in Asia. Maybe because of the non painted trailer, Roller and some detailing but still waaaaay below the SRP in the Asian market.

Why is that then? Did the Asian price help ofset the lower priced domestic USA releases?
