What is rightfully being called the "Hollywood’s Summer of Toys", has seen so many big toy based properties released in the theaters this year. While Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts didn't soar at the box office, Hasbro is reporting they have seen a nice RISE in sales of 85 percent. Said to be driven by the movie toys, as well as their other classic lines that fans are revisiting, by the Hollywood Reporter:
Studios has been trying for some to time to connect with "Kiddults", who are more interested in entertainment properties that appeal to young and old fans. This shows there is an upside for franchises regardless of ticket sales, at least for Hasbro and other toy companies. However, it is the fans who benefit most, as we get both the movies and new products.
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.
