Takara Tomy to Release AM-26 Arms Micron Smokescreen to Transformers Prime Series

By Jack on Sunday, September 09, 2012



It appears the Transformers Prime debut of Smokescreen is followed by a bit of news that he will very likely be getting an action figure from our good friends at Takara Tomy. According to some details listed on TF Wiki, there will be an AM-26 Arms Micron Smokescreen coming to Japan that will be a repaint and retool of the deluxe class Knock Out toy on November 24, 2012. Read the full details on the soon to be released AM-26 Arms Micron Smokescreen.
    Smokescreen (Deluxe, 11-24-2012)
    ID number: AM-26
    Accessories: Arms Micron

    A redeco (and potential retooling) of Knock Out, Smokescreen is (currently) exclusive to the TakaraTomy Prime toyline. He transforms into a low-riding sports car. As part of the Arms Micron gimmick, he has extra 5mm post-holes in both modes, allowing him to use the weapon-bots. He comes with a (currently unknown and unnamed) Arms Micron partner.

Based on the character design I saw...this was exactly what I expected. I actually like the knockout mold....I like it better than a BB repaint...

A retool of the crapfest that is the Knockout toy... really Takara? I expected better, guess Smokescreen will not be getting a US release afterall.

In what appears to be last minute deal, Tranformers and other Hasbro shows will be staying on with Netfilx. As we reported previously, Hasbro and Netflix were to go their own way last month when a new deal fell through. However, without disclosing the terms of the detail. USA Today reports Netflix let be known that Hasbro Studios shows aren't going anywhere. Good news for Netflix customers who need their Transformers fix.
Adweek has posted an article about Hasbro's TV strategies that goes into of detail about The Hub - and what went wrong. The short version is that Discovery was admirably hands-off with the network, leaving Hasbro almost solely in charge of programming... and a combination of slow profits, the proliferation of on-demand viewing, and the departure of President & CEO Margaret Loesch led Hasbro get out of the network-running business. Keep reading for more details on all that and a link to the full article where you can see My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic described as "creepily beloved"!
While we'd previously heard a cutoff date of January 1st for G1 and other Hasbro shows, The Wrap reports that Hasbro and Netflix have been unable to come to terms - a situation more or less confirmed by a Tweet from @HasbroNews. So if you really want to catch up on Transformers Prime, Pound Puppies, or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'd best get to watching now. Keep reading for more details!
Variety reports that the Hub will, as previously rumored, become the Discovery Family Channel on October 13th. Discovery will be taking a majority share in the network, but Hasbro will retain a daytime block of programming for its shows such as Transformers Rescue Bots, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and presumably the upcoming Transformers Robots In Disguise. Keep reading for more details!
Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reports that Polygon Pictures has walked away from the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with four awards, two for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. The other two were for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and between the two series Polygon has taken the Outstanding Special Class Animated Program award for the past three years running. We'll see if Robots In Disguise 2015 will help them maintain their lock on the category, but for now keep reading for an excerpt from the article and a link to full details!
