Prime Beast Hunters
UK Toy Fair 2013 - Transformers Products From Hasbro - Legion Predacons, Ultimate Class, Masterpiece Prime

By Jack on Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Thanks to Full Metal Hero forums member Macula who has been posting news from the UK Toy Fair this year. Like previous years, no images were allowed to be taken at the presentation but he has shared some details on what was shown by Hasbro at the event including news of Legion class Predacons and the Ultimate Class toys we just posted about. Read on for more on the Transofrmers Product Announcement From Hasbro.

Firstly, Beat Hunters will be released here in May and Hasbro expect to distribute three waves between then and year's end. So look for all sizes on shelves starting then.

A set of five Legion sized Predacons will also be released.

The large Predaking we saw at NYCC is an Ultimate sized figure. He is joined in this size class by an Ultimate Optimus Prime. We have no release date for these yet. A Facebook message from Hasbro this past week indicated that these are being treated as separate from the rest of the Beast Hunters line, which could improve their availability.

Hasbro also commented that they're aware of the issues surrounding Masterpiece Optimus Prime and share our disappointment. However, it seems to be in the hands of TRU now.

Stay tuned to Tformers.com for more details as they are made available. Your best resource for all the Transformers news and community every day.

More Prime Beast Hunters News
The Tranformers Rishing fan page on Facebook have shared news that DeNA's Transformers Rising Mobile Game will be taken offline at the end of this month, November 30th. This closure follows the Transformers Age of Extinction Movie game that was shuttered in September. Meanwhile, the Transformers: Battle Tactics game appears to still be in play with a new game now in Open Beta titled, Transformers: Frontiers.
Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's Diecast for the heads-up! As befits the name, Amazon has a Transformers deal for their Prime Day promotion! Amazon Prime members can get the Covenant of Primus - the super-slick book that recounts the entire history of the Transformers Aligned Continuity - for only $30! This deal is a Lightning Deal, meaning it's only available for roughly the next three hours. Click through to see the proof and the link!
While the Autobots have vowed to protect Earth, Megatron and his treacherous Decepticons have vowed to strip it of its valuable Energon, no matter the cost. Somehow, Optimus Prime and his Autobots always seem to get in the way. With Ultimate Decepticons, you can now see five of the greatest Decepticon stories, featuring Starscream, Skyquake, Makeshift, Airachnid, Dreadwing, Predaking, Knock Out and more of your all-time favorite transforming villains!
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"!
