The Shared Cinematic Universe was once again shown with images of Micronauts, ROM: Spaceknight, GI Joe, Visionaries, and M.A.S.K. Concept are for all of these were shown - though Transformers is still termed as separate from this group of properties, the art showing Optimus Prime is still shown for Micronauts.

Mobile Gaming - Transformers: Earth Wars, are all developed by Hasbro's own developer, Backflip Studios. Earth Wars will debut this weekend at Toy Fair.

The Live Action Transformers show in China we've reported on previously was mentioned.

Fans - Hasbro has categorized fans into four categories: "Casual Fans," "Core Fans," "Hardcore Fans," and "Super Fans." Generations will continue to court the adult collector. Hasbro intends to hold more polls to better understand what their dedicated fans want. Older fans are cited as 30% of the Transformers business.

Machinima - The Combiner Wars Animated Series debuts in July.

Rescue Bots - The new female Rescue Bot has a name: Quickshadow!

Robots In Disguise - RID is cited as the top boys' show in its timeslot in the US, and the top boys' show internationally. (Which suggests that with a timeslot of 6:30 AM in the US, Cartoon Network is squandering a lot of potential as usual. -RAC) A special event is promised for the fall, which will presumably be the series wrap-up movie we'd previously heard about.

Titans Return - Titans Return is scheduled for the fall, and is co-branded with IDW and Backflip Studios, suggesting a coordinated push.
