TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON Line Brings New Storyline to Hasbro’s Iconic Brand

Feb 18, 2005

Hasbro Builds Upon TRANSFORMERS ALTERNATORS Line of Vehicles Based on Popular Car Brands



TRANSFORMERS fans have a lot to look forward to in 2005 as Hasbro launches the latest installment to the TRANSFORMERS saga – TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON. TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON features a compelling story full of intrigue and surprise that will remind fans what it means to be “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE”!


CYBERTRON, home planet of both TRANSFORMERS factions, is in danger. In order to save it from certain destruction, OPTIMUS PRIME will lead the AUTOBOTS on an intergalactic scavenger hunt to lost planets to find four ancient CYBER PLANET KEYS. But MEGATRON and the nefarious DECEPTICONS will be hot on their heels, trying to steal the CYBER PLANET KEYS and harness their power for evil. These four CYBER PLANET KEYS are the AUTOBOTS only hope, as they have the power to unlock CYBERTRON itself, and make their home planet into the one TRANSFORMERS robot powerful enough to shut down the black hole that threatens the entire universe!


A new line of toys based on TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON will help kids bring the action of the newest chapter in the TRANSFORMERS universe to life. TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON will launch during the summer of 2005 in conjunction with the debut of the new Cartoon Network animated series. Hasbro’s line will feature a broad array of action figures that range from basic to “supreme” versions. Hasbro is also introducing new TRANSFORMERS figures that have a “triple-change” feature to convert them into three modes instead of the traditional two. TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON will be available in July for between $6.99-49.99. They are recommended for kids ages 5 and up.


In addition, Hasbro continues its popular TRANSFORMERS ALTERNATORS line of highly detailed and realistic authentically licensed vehicles that can be changed into the robot modes of favorite TRANSFORMERS characters.


As we look beyond 2005, Hasbro has teamed up with DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures to develop a live-action motion picture based on the TRANSFORMERS franchise. Steven Spielberg will executive produce, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (“Constantine”), Don Murphy (“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) and Tom DeSanto (“X-Men” and “X2: X-Men United”) are attached to produce. The film is slated for release in the summer of 2006. Stay tuned for more exciting details about the first live-action TRANSFORMERS movie.
