Transformers Radio Controlled Vehicles From Nikko Coming in 2014
BaCon - Friday, September 13, 2013


Multi-year deal will see Nikko develop range of R/C vehicles and robots based on Transformers franchise for 2014.

Radio controlled toys manufacturer, Nikko has partnered with Hasbro to develop a line of Transformers radio controlled robots and vehicles.

The new line - kicking off in 2014 and running through to 2016 - will be based on the brand's iconic Autobots and Decepticons from the Transformers universe.

The multi-year agreement offers Nikko the opportunity to leverage the upcoming entertainment slate that includes animated TV programming and the continuing popular movie series.

"No doubt Transformers fans will be excited with the innovative style that Nikko will use to create a complete line up of Radio Controlled Vehicles," said Arne Vissers, Nikko's VP of sales.

"We will follow our strategy to create great toys and sell them at mass market price points without doing any concession to the well-known Nikko quality."

James Walker, VP of European licensing at Hasbro, added: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Nikko on licensed Transformer R/C toys, on the upcoming movie and beyond.

"The vehicles have always been incredibly popular in our Transformers franchise and we are looking forward to giving fans the chance to take control of the Autobots and Decepticons."

Both Hasbro and Nikko will work closely together on a Pan European retail strategy, with dedicated Transformers shelf space, specific POS materials, TV Campaign's and a large social media offensive.

Price points are currently being finalised, and product is scheduled to be on shelves at the beginning in 2014.

Thanks to Matt for the heads up about the new Transformers licensed "Ready to Bear FW17" merchandise made by Italian luxury fashion house, Moschino. Those looking for ultra-high-end fashion Transformers collectibles will be happy to find these premium priced products that are a strange amalgamation of Optimus Prime and a Teddy Bear. Which, is less puzzling than the prices. The prices star at $120 for phone cover and work their way up to $1,050 for a nightshirt. No kidding, read on to see the images and more info in the gallery after the jump.
Looks like we'll be getting a definitive guide on the Takara Diaclone toys from Happy Japan in July. The product listing doesn't say much, though its pretty same to assume what we will see. The listing does give us information that the Diaclone book will also include a digital data collection DVD including historical catalogues and memorable TV CM that colored the world of Diaclone with fascinating stories and illustrations! The Japanese language book is listed for 3,780 JPY / $35 USD to ship next month.
