Thanks to Hasbro who have posted a webcast on the UBS Best Of Americas 2012 Conference where Hasbro's Brian Goldner; President and Chief Executive Officer and Deborah Thomas presented their plans for the coming 2013 and beyond.

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present the latest release in the Premium Bust Collection - Lockdown from Transformers: Age of Extinction. Like any bounty hunter, Lockdown will pay top dollar to get what he wants. Answering only to his enigmatic "Creators", Lockdown holds himself above the Autobot/Decepticon war and sees both sides as squabbling children that he has to rein in personally. He doesn't think much of other civilized species across the galaxy (particularly humans), though he isn't above working with them if it suits him.
Tencent Games and Hasbro today officially announced a new Transformers Online shooter. The game is a competitive online action shooter powered by Unreal Engine 4, and in other words, it will be similar to Overwatch in gameplay style. Transformers will start closed beta in China on August 5 and the game will reveal more details at ChinaJoy 2016 later this week. Stay tuned for our following coverage.
