HASBRO INVITES KIDS AND FANS TO CREATE NEW TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER

Opening Globally Today, the “Fan Built Bot” Poll Kicks-Off Celebration of the Iconic Brand’s 30th Anniversary by Allowing Fans to Create New Transformers Character

Pawtucket, R.I. (April 18, 2013) — For the first time in history, the Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) TRANSFORMERS brand is inviting fans of all ages around the globe to help create a new TRANSFORMERS character that will be forever added to the TRANSFORMERS world. In anticipation of the TRANSFORMERS’ brand 30th anniversary in 2014, the “Fan Built Bot” Poll kicks off today, and will run through May 5th on Transformers.com/vote. Hasbro invites fans to vote daily to shape this new TRANSFORMERS character. The new character will be made into an action figure featured in the “Thrilling 30” line of toys to celebrate the anniversary.


Hasbro is giving kids and fans the opportunity to make the “Fan Built Bot” character with votes determining everything from being an AUTOBOT or DECEPTICON—to its vehicle or other mode, color, personality and more. Kids and fans are encouraged to vote daily! Also, to keep with the theme of the fans being the ones who really shape and create this new TRANSFORMERS character, Hasbro will also give fans a say in the naming of the new character. More details on the naming will be announced soon.

“Since 1984, the TRANSFORMERS brand has been bringing entertainment and excitement to kids and fans with our beloved characters like BUMBLEBEE and OPTIMUS PRIME. We invite all fans to help us kick off the 30th anniversary of TRANSFORMERS with a new character of their choice — for the first time in history,” said Jay Duke, vice president of the TRANSFORMERS brand at Hasbro. “This is the perfect way to kick off our anniversary celebration and the ‘Thrilling 30’ line of special edition figures. It will be tremendous fun for everyone to keep track of the entire process from the designing of the character; leading up to its introduction as a toy and watching it become a part of the TRANSFORMERS brand.”

The results of the poll will be announced by Hasbro at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, as part of the official kick-off to Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS “Thrilling 30” anniversary celebration. Kids and fans will be able to purchase the “Fan Built Bot” character as a toy and will see the new character appear in official TRANSFORMERS comic books.

Looks like the two foot tall Unicron is not the end for statuary from Soldier Story. The generously-described "lamp" that depicts Unicron standing atop Cybertron's surface is apparently to be joined in future by a planet mode Unicron as well. No indication of its specific light up elements yet, though it seems to be more of a prototype, at least judging by its stand being partly comprised of Bandai Action Base parts. Also shown was a grey prototype for Rodimus Prime unleashing the power of the Matrix. It's a bit easier to guess what will light up on that one! Check out the pictures below.
If your answer is "yes," then Transformers@The Moon has come through for you again! On the tail-end of their recently-released tape for War of the Dinobots, TF@TM have discovered a session of generic robot kitty sounds recorded by Frank Welker, with voice direction by the one and only Wally Burr! Keep reading to hear.
Transformers at the Moon is back with another upload of lost G1 cartoon audio. In a little bit shorter entry, this installment features War Of The Dinobots, with a few instances of extended scenes, and one marked as having been missing from the episode as broadcast. Fun things to listen for here are unfiltered Dinobot voices, more of Laserbeak clearly being Chris Latta pretending to be falling down some stairs, and Trailbreaker laughing an absolutely inappropriate amount at his own joke. Catch it all in the embedded video below!
How would you like to hang with Optimus Prime and Bumblebee on the high-seas? Well, soon you will be able to on the “Carnival Playtime” that is a new partnership with Carnival Cruise Lines and Hasbro. Passengers will be able to engage in all sorts of games and characters that are inspired by the Transformers and My Little Pony, on board the cruise ship itself. According to the report on Carnival Cruise Lines. Fans will can get on board the special four-day trip between July 13 to September 17, departing out of Long Beach, California.
