Our success in 2021 sets us up well for the strong year we have planned in 2022 from content like War For Cybertron and Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures that helped drive double-digit growth in the action figure category in 2021. To our first-ever dedicated Theme Parkland Transformers. Metrobase at Universal Studios Beijing. It's never been a more exciting time for the brand.
Entertainment is at the heart of Transformers. We have been working closely with eOne to redefine what's possible in the storytelling universe and create content that connects with all our consumer segments from fans to families to kids. We're driving against multi-year roadmaps to supercharge our blueprint and 2022 is just the beginning of what's to come for Transformers.
In partnership with Nickelodeon, we are co-producing a new original animated kids series, Transformers EarthSpark. This action-comedy follows a new species of Transformers on Earth as they find their place and purpose among Autobots, Decepticons, and the human family that adopts them.
EarthSpark presents many firsts for Transformers that we're bringing to life for kids leading into insights. We identify core pillars of play that allow us to take conversion to another level and connect with kids to deliver on the magic they want to be brought to life in toy prize conversion, classic conversion, and magic conversion. Will create a true show-to-shelf moment for the line, an innovative new way to convert EarthSpark's greatest heroes.
Transformers EarthSpark will continue to ignite the franchise with kids as we head into 2023, leading us into our biggest theatrical event to date, "Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts", only in theaters on June 9th, 2023. We're partnering with eOne, Paramount, and a visionary new director to bring to life a Transformer story as you've never seen.
The film will pick up after the events of 2018 Bumblebee and follows Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and an unlikely team of humans who are joined by a group of powerful new allies, the Transformers Beasts.
The introduction of these characters will be a significant moment for all from kids to core fans and especially those who grew up with Beast Wars in the 90s. "Transformers: Rise Of The Beasst" raises the stakes and sets us up for what's to come over the next few years in our film franchise.
Rise of the beasts was a phenomenon ? the brand new maximal designs, the adventure, the comedy and especially mirage and Bumblebee and Optimus primal ????????????
Arcee looks really good.
Shame they didn't invert the colors of Cheetor though. Grey and yellow instead of yellow and grey. I'd have purchased two and picked up another of the single release and mixed and matched a set to have one all grey and another all yellow.
Battlemaster Airazor looks amazing. I'd love to get a flock. Or would murder be a more appropriate word for a bunch of birds that turn into weapons?
Mega Man, Rise of the Cheese, should be the title. Quite disappointing, glad I streamed it free a week ago. It would have been a waste of money in the theater!
Optimus primal looks so amazing! Gotta save up a lot money to get that bot. I mean, the details looks so slick and stylish. So adding to my collection.?
Love the details of those things. Optimus prime and bumblebee and Optimus primal and Cheetos. Gotta get those.
This movie may actually be better than any other previous Transformer movie in existence! A perfect ix between Bayverse, G1, and Beast Wars finally coming together on screen to create, Transformers Rise of the Beasts!
I sure would love to be able to get a few of those Burning Plasma Blaster Battlemasters. Those red limbs would work great to try and make the Autobot Targetmasters. I already have the Takara Legends Targetmasters for the Autobots and Decepticons but I do like to have matching set options.
I've only seem them on BBTS so far for $53 each. No thanks, I don't like matching sets that much. I'll wait until I can find them somewhere else like Mandarake or something.
Oh, the preorders are sold out now anyway. I guess someone wanted them that bad. I mean, that's about what they'd cost if a third party company made them anyway so some might be more desensitized to the price than I am.
