Transformers 4 - Hasbro Reveal Plans to Reinvent Brand with New Characters and More
Jack - Tuesday, September 11, 2012


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. Not least of which was a little bit of priming for the Transformers 4 movie as well all the other the brand related entertainment initiatives they have planned. Check out the details and highlights below:

UBS Best Of Americas 2012 Conference Details
  • A video was presented covering Hasbro brands and the The Hub network

  • Plans to expand into entertainment began in 2000 with Movies, TV, Games and licensing lead by the Transformers franchise.

  • Transformers 4 was announced for a movie release in 2014.

  • Toy sales were weak on DOTM due to same characters in all three movies.

  • Transformers 4 movie will have a new line up and story to go with them.

  • Transformers is trying to appeal to children as well with Rescue Bots show and toys.

  • Goldner mentions the decline in toys sales after three movies is common and again cites Hasbro's vision to reinvent the brand for Transformers 4.

Let's see, toys we had for DotM: Lots more BB, a couple Primes, another Ratchet & Ironhide, another SS, & tons of non movie characters. Missing: a new Soundwave, no Dino/Mirage, no Que/Wheeljack, no Leadfoot (all of whom were in the movie and never represented with similar molds) ... Why... read more

It wasn't the same characters that was the problem with DOTM, it was the quality, and shrinkage that caused it, not to mention the butt load of Bumblebee's they made that no one wants, plus the Kreo junk. Definitely give me new characters, and the good deluxe size at the DOTM price point

Hopefully BB is absent from the 4th movie since the previous human characters will be gone.

A piece on Variety earlier this week reveals that Huahua Media out of China and Paramount Pictures are ending what was supposed to be a multi-year investment deal that would see the Chinese company contribute financing to numerous film productions.

In August, Paramount execs flew to China to smooth things over after a string of movies - most recent at the time being Transformers: The Last Knight - failed to perform to expectations. Paramount says they'll pursue financing partnerships elsewhere - including with Hasbro - but on the whole it's probably still not good news at all. Keep reading for more details!
