While not having a presence at Toy Fair UK this year, Hasbro still maintains its licenses with ancillary companies, producing some intriguing (to say the least) collaborations with clothing and playset brands - Fyodor Golan and Philip Plein taking over the former, with Transformers themed shirts, skirts and dresses, and Simba Dickie focusing on the latter and Robots in Disguise.

Hasbro Showcases Global Franchises at Brand Licensing Europe 2015

MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS Branded Fashion Lines and the Return of Classic Characters ACTION MAN and STRETCH ARMSTRONG Among New Licenses Announced

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) arrives at Brand Licensing Europe 2015 to spotlight its range of beloved global franchise brands, including TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, MONOPOLY, LITTLEST PET SHOP, NERF, PLAY-DOH, MAGIC: THE GATHERING and JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS. Named a top 10 Global Licensor by License! Global magazine earlier this year, Hasbro continues to expand its presence throughout Europe with a comprehensive lifestyle licensing portfolio, notably focused on high-end apparel lines that turn the iconic MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS brands into fashionable favourites, as well as broad expansions within its licensed toy & game offerings. A key property on display at the show, the MY LITTLE PONY franchise will continue enchanting fans of all ages with the release of a highly anticipated full-length animated feature film, produced by Hasbro's Allspark Pictures, slated to debut globally in 2017.

"Entertainment and immersive storytelling have been the driving force behind our powerhouse portfolio of franchise brands," said James Walker, VP Brand Licensing, Hasbro Europe. "We're proud to grow our licensing programme across Europe by translating great entertainment into an incredible lifestyle lineup that allows us to bring our stories to life and engage consumers across multiple mediums including entertainment, publishing and even more branded experiences."

At BLE, Hasbro will also unveil several new relationships with leading European licensees across Fashion and Toy & Game categories, including:


Hasbro announces a new licensing agreement with Dickie Toys, a Simba Dickie Group company, to develop a line of TRANSFORMERS branded vehicles and playsets that will debut in 2016. The range is slated to include RC cars, die cast vehicles, vehicles with lights and sounds, and themed playsets.


Following a successful line of MY LITTLE PONY womenswear, the TRANSFORMERS brand is next to get fashionable as UK designers FYODOR GOLAN swap rainbows for robots and ‘roll out' their latest inspired collection of high-end TRANSFORMERS branded apparel, first seen during London Fashion Week this September.


After Philipp Plein launched TRANSFORMERS branded shirts for men earlier this year, he now translates the TRANSFORMERS brand into a fashion brand for women. These high-end designer dresses include great attention to detail and extravagant applications, including a TRANSFORMERS character made of rhinestones.


Acclaimed Catalan designer Maria Escoté announces a license agreement with the MY LITTLE PONY brand, focused on a new fashion line slated to debut during Madrid Fashion Week in February 2016. Fans can discover how she takes the most iconic pieces of the MY LITTLE PONY world and turns them into fashion by following #MLPbyMariaEscote.


Hasbro's MY LITTLE PONY brand continues to be a fashion powerhouse with its latest release, the MY LITTLE PONY by UNDIZ collection. Featuring retro MY LITTLE PONY designs, the line of underwear and nightwear is currently being sold in over 100 UNDIZ stores and online.


The STRETCH ARMSTRONG toy will once again be pulled to his limits by kids as Hasbro licenses global rights for its iconic toy brand to The Character Group. The hilarious action figure, first launched in 1976, will bring a new round of enjoyment to today's kids with a line of STRETCH ARMSTRONG classic toys to be released summer 2016.


The ACTION MAN brand celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016! To mark the occasion, Hasbro has licensed Art + Science International, a specialist company in developing and launching retro toys, to release five ACTION MAN collector edition figures in June 2016. The range will feature the classic British infantrymen, the skier, the parachutist, the scuba diver, and the footballer, each inspired by the best of the ACTION MAN brand and featuring accessories, gripping hands, a realistic "flock" of hair, and ACTION MAN's famous scar.


Under license from Hasbro, GP Flair re-launches two classic brands in the UK: STICKLE BRICKS and MR. FROSTY. Starting in 2016, a new generation of children will be sticking, stacking, and building their way to developing better dexterity and imagination with the STICKLE BRICKS brand, the perfect first construction toy for toddlers. GP Flair will also re-release the MR. FROSTY frozen slushy maker in 2016, which first became a household favourite when it debuted in 1980.
