Transformers: Legends Mobile Game Is Ending
Posted by News Fetcher on June 10 '15 at 07:15 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Every Thursday we brought you the latest Transformers: Legends Mobile Game Event News from DeNA. Today we are announcing the closure of the game.

DeNA stated :

Hey TRANSFORMERS Legends fans,

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce some bad news today.

We will be retiring TRANSFORMERS: Legends on September 30th, 2015

We’ve worked very hard to keep TRANSFORMERS: Legends for our loyal playerbase for as long as we possibly could, but unfortunately there isn’t anything else we can do to keep things going. With that being said, we’ve decided to give our players the keys to the kingdom during the last few months of TRANSFORMERS: Legends lifespan.

Starting June 25th:

All MobaCoin/CyberCash purchase will be shut off (you will still be able to spend your remaining balance on resources packages and the Space Bridges)

A new additional Medal type, “Shanix”, will be added to the game, which will allow players to purchase premium SpaceBridges(Character/Weapon). Items will be bundled with Premium Space Bridges.

The complete Cyber-dex will be unlocked for all players to view all the cards in the game.

All player’s Characters and Weapon Base size will be increased

All Players will receive a free Devastator Combiner card

The payout of all rewards, including leaderboard rewards, event point rewards, will be increased

We know how hard it is to watch a game you love sunset, but if you’re looking for more TRANSFORMERS action, we hope you’ll download TRANSFORMERS BATTLETACTICS ,”where you can build a dream team of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS, and go head-to-head against players from around the world in strategic PvP based combat”

By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
You'll probably be wondering why there is a business news doing on the front page of a site about toys. Well, that's because this news does indeed affect our hobby to a certain extent.

Hasbro has incorporated a new solution to streamline and centralize its product development which includes Transformers. Benefits include improved quality, reduced material costs and faster product launches.

Souvenir Set 3 (4 pack) - $169

Via the Planet Iacon Facebook Group we have a look at a collector coin which will accompany the release of Unite Warriors Superion in Asia. The coin comes packaged in a cardboard envelope designed to resemble Superion's chest. Interestingly, its subtitled as Masterpiece, but we think this is a goof. Check out some images attached to this post.

Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 confirmed not coming to Europe

Word reaches us from the Transformers Collectors Europe group that a gentleman named David Polwarth has had the conclusive final word on the fate of Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 2 in Europe.

According to the response to an email sent to Hasbro UK, the assortment is not making it to Europe as Hasbro's EU branches "could not meet quantity targets". Whether this means there were not enough units available to supply, or stores did not place enough orders during the wave's production window is not clear.

Our commiserations to our European readers, with Dragstrip-armed Superions.
