Age of Extinction
Toy Fair 2009 Transformers Event Coverage

By News Staff on Monday, February 16, 2009



As always, TFormers and ENI are reporting live from Toy Fair 2009 in New York City. Join us as we uncover all the news and details from the Hasbro press event. We'll be reporting on all the announcements as well as showing the Transformers that were on display including new product from Animated and the Revenge of the Fallen Devastator action figure combiner team and more.

"Arlin" of The Arker has posted several images of upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen key chains shown during Toy Fair 2009, and they provide what may be some interesting details. The images provide a colored view of Bumblebee and silhouette views of Optimus Prime, Starcream, and a "New Figure" (*ahem* Megatron *ahem*).


We have just received new official images from the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toyline, which also reveals that the Audi R8 character will be named Sideways! Along with the official images of that figure, we also have images of figures we have already seen, although these seem to be the real deal, and not just Photoshopped versions of each. The pics include Deluxe Constructicon Rampage, Bumble Spud, Legends Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, Preview Wave Soundwave and Bumblebee, Fast Action Battlers Double Blade Optimus Prime, the Autobot seeker Breakaway, and the Bumblebee Voice Mixer.


We just received some official shots of the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen figures, ranging from the following sublines: Gravity Bots, Power Bots, Robot Heroes, Robot Replicas, Role Play, Ultimate Bumblebee, Voyagers and Scouts classes, Battle Chargers, RPMs, R/C cars, and vehicle playset. Mass consume...now.



We all learned that from Transformers (as well as many other film promotions) that the toys will not be the only things invading shelves when Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters this June 24, 2009, as there will be an onslaught of desirable merchandise. For those guys hunting this valuable stuff, this is the gallery for you.



Our sister-site Jedi Insider has posted official images of new Star Wars Transformers figures coming out in June and July of this year. The figures include Kit Fisto/Jedi Starfighter (available June 09), Battle Droid/ATT (June 09), Magna Guard/Fighter (July 09), and Ahsoka Tano/Jedi Star Fighter (July 09). Please note that the deco on Kit Fisto will be different than from what is shown in these mock-ups. For the images, head over to JediInsider.com.



We just finished uploading some live shots of the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Devastator to the website for your mass consumption. Take a look at the vehicle-only figures of Rampage (wheel loader), Scavenger (steam shovel), Scrapper (bulldozer), Hightower (crane), Long Haul (dump truck), and Mix Master (cement mixer) that make up this two-foot monstrosity. We also have several shots of Leader class Optimus Prime, Skids (Chevrolet Beat), Mudflap (Chevrolet Trax), and many more.

TFormers and ENI are reporting live from Toy Fair 2009. Just in from the Hasbro press event is news that the Hasbro Transformers display was a little light on products. We do have word that the Devastator action figure combiner team will be sold as a set of six robots for about $100 retail. Stay tuned for more news and images that we will be posting very soon.



In honor of the 25th anniversary of the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, Hasbro is “rolling out” dozens of TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toys that showcase the innovation and depth that have been synonymous with the toy line since its inception. Featuring numerous styles and varying levels of complexity, Hasbro’s 2009 TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toy line will appeal to a growing fan base that – after 25 years – spans multiple generations.



Ahead of Toy Fair 2009 in New York City this weekend, Hasbro, Inc. has just put out a press release talking about what we should expect from the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toyline, including price points, and approximate release dates. What a lot of you guys were wondering is finally answered, too: Devastator is composed of six robots and will cost $100 USD. Take a look after the jump.
Reminder: We'll be covering all of the good stuff this weekend for you at Toy Fair and Hasbro Collector-Fan Media Day, so stay tuned!



This summer, the colossal battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS continues when “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” once again invade movie theaters around the world. The new DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures live-action movie TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN debuts June 26, 2009 and continues the story from the 2007 worldwide blockbuster film that finds two warring factions of robots colliding in a major battle on planet Earth.

More Age of Extinction News
Olivus Prime of the TFW2005 Forums was able to sit down with Mark Ryan recently and talk Transformers movies. Ryan is the voice behind Revenge of the Fallen's Jetfire and Age of Extinction's Lockdown, and spoke of his inspiration for Jetfire, the amount of his own acting that was put into Lockdown... and perhaps most interestingly, a hint at the direction of Transformers 5 and the Transformers Cinematic Universe at large. Read on to see what he had to say!
Get your views in on the Transformers movies listed on Netflix as they will be removed from the listing at the end of September. Transformers: Age of Extinction and a number of other films such as the Hunger Games, World War Z that are part of the Epix distribution deal, have not been renewed at this time. We've been here before, where the deal was done only to be re-done at the zero-hour. Read on to see the quote from Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix.
Empire Online has posted a ranking of the 100 greatest characters to feature in a movie, as selected by their readership. And Optimus Prime managed to make the list! Just barely avoiding falling in to dead last place, Optimus Prime ranks 98 out of 100. We're not entirely sure on what criteria people made their choices, but the bullet points on Empire's list might have you believe it's due to Optimus riding a dinosaur. We can but wonder if he wouldn't have ranked higher had he not murdered Frasier a short time later. Click through to get a link to the full list.
Following the long slow run up to Transformers 5 and the Cinematic Universe. We have some new insights from Daredevil writer Steven Dekinght.

While no word on what the new Transformers 5 movie being worked on now by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner, we do get a sense the new blood may actually produce a movie a story in it. Read on for more.
If you like busts and statues, then you're in business! Prime 1 Studios had pieces on display from Age of Extinction at Wonderfest this weekend. Busts of Optimus Prime and Galvatron, replicating the heads and upper bodies of the characters in painstaking detail, plus a full statue of Lockdown with one of his "hunting dogs". It's probably the best merchandise representation of Lockdown that will ever exist, and the price tag is sure to reflect that! Click through to check them out.
