BAYVERSE OVER? - Hasbro Investor Preview Day Reveals Movie Series To Be 'Reset' After Bumblebee Movie
RAC - Friday, February 16, 2018

The biggest surprise to this is that it was announced before Bumblebee: The Movie was even released. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner announced today that the Transformers Cinematic Universe is cancelled. The universe - which Paramount had so much faith in that they took four to five of the prospective scripts and put them in a blender to make Transformers: The Last Knight - will be replaced by what is described as a 'reset' of the Transformers franchise to happen no earlier than 2021 going by the film schedule offered to investors. Keep reading for more details. Via 2005:
New agreement with Paramount will have Hasbro having greater control of the movies including greenlighting the movie projects.

New Paramount team will RESET the future direction for Transformers after Bumblebee: The Movie.

The 2019 Transformers Movie (sequel to Transformers: The Last Knight) is no longer listed. No Transformers movie listed for the foreseeable future (2021).

Bumblebee: The Movie trailer or sizzle reel made its debut to the investors at the event. Unfortunately we were not able to see it.

$100-$125 Million will be spent by Hasbro for Film and TV content in 2018.

This greater control for Hasbro is a wise move for a company trying to remold itself as an owner of valuable ideas. Whether they can get anywhere with the GI Joe, Micronauts, and Dungeons and Dragons films between now and the next TF film's earliest possible launch window of 2021 remains to be seen though, as two of those properties have performed less than spectacularly at cinemas before, and the third is a `70s toy property that is a bit outside the usual nostalgia window. The future is uncertain, to say the least.

UPDATE: We've removed the word "Reboot" from this article as it's not the word used by Goldner earlier today. The word he used is "reset," which may not indicate a starting from scratch so much as a mere change in direction. It's difficult to say what the next Transformers film may look like. With Hasbro taking greater control of their films and Micronauts still on the schedule along with another GI Joe film, it's entirely possible that Hasbro could push for an all-inclusive, IDW-style Hasbroverse. We have no real, concrete indication this will be the case; it's just a possibility we raise, keeping in mind a promotional image of Optimus Prime holding the Micronauts from a previous investor communique. The future of Transformers films, at the moment, is entirely unknown.

Wholesaler NDA Toys has given us a first look at the official stock photo for Voyager Class Brawl from the second wave of the Studio Series lineup. This conveniently follows on from a leaked look at Megatron's stock photography, also from wave 2. Through this we have a nice look at the figure in its final color and production plastics, letting us know what to expect when this figure starts getting in the hands of collectors... well, sometime after April 20th, at least, as that was what we last knew as a street date for Studio Series. And it's not always out of the question to see a second product wave hit shortly after the first when a sale date is enforced! Click through to see the full size image.
Thanks to Ryan on Twitter, we have photos confirming that both the second wave Power of The Primes Voyagers (Elita-1 and Hun-Gurrr) as well as the first wave Studio Series figures are out in Canada now, at EB Games locations in or around Toronto. We've got photos from both finds below. It looks like Studio Series is not doing the best job holding to the street date we've been expecting of it, though the larger national retailers in the US at least seem to be playing along for the moment.
In a post refreshingly devoid of purple marker, the usual Weibo leaker has shared images of the upcoming Studio Series Voyager Megatron. A new mold based on Megatron's Revenge of the Fallen appearance, the figure looks quite good in both modes even if the cannon/sword assembly on the right arm reminds us of nothing so much as a crab to this very day. Keep reading for more images of Crabtank Megatron!
Yenting Lai of Facebook group TFND- Transformers Never Die has posted an extensive photo set for Studio Series Blackout! It's an impressive figure, to be sure. The backdrop included in-package is particularly nice as well, copying the desert scene where Blackout and Scorponok first made their appearance in 2007's Transformers film. We've mirrored the images here for you, so keep reading to see!
Via reddit, we have a first in-store sighting of the complete first wave of Studio Series product, comprising the Deluxe, Voyager, and now Leader classes. The find is from Auckland, New Zealand, and the original poster confirms that both Grimlock and Blackout were present at the store, marking their first appearance at standard retail. Their debut in the US is a bit of a question mark as we wait for a street date to come and go, but with Toys R Us on the way out, it's unclear if they may jump the line and go ahead and push whatever inventory is on hand while they have the chance. Click through for the sighting photo!
