Hasbro Collaborates With Shapeways To Sell 3D Printed Artwork
Posted by News Fetcher on July 21 '14 at 07:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Hasbro just announced a partnership with Shapeways regarding a new initiative where Official and Fan Art will be 3D Printed and sold as official Hasbro products. The announcement first came from Hasbro's 2014 2nd Quarter Financial Conference Call and Shapeways followed it with an official statement from their end. Though the initiative begins with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, the company plans to expand into other Hasbro brands which might include Transformers.

"Once we have filled our 3D printers with community designed ponies, we will continue to work with Hasbro and the Shapeways community to enable more Hasbro branded content to be created, 3D printed and sold.

This is a major step forward in realizing the creative potential of 3D printing, to make products on demand that might otherwise never make it into people’s hands. Hasbro has been incredibly forward thinking and open minded, to realize that the existing unmet demand within their fan base can be satisfied with the help of those very same fans. We expect to see many more partnerships like this, to enable user generated content to be 3D printed based on existing intellectual property, with fair attribution and compensation for all parties involved. We've seen this model work successfully in the digital realm, and we’re thrilled to be leading the charge in the physical."


The designs (Fan Art) must be cleared with Hasbro to ensure they are not obscene, violent or hateful, but otherwise, the artists largely have free rein. Even the price for the figurines will be set by the artists.

TFW2005 Coverage Of Hasbro Second Quarter 2014 Earnings Conference Call
Posted by News Fetcher on July 21 '14 at 06:15 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
TFW2005 attended the Hasbro Second Quarter 2014 Earnings Conference Call live today.

Nothing major was told but Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner mentioned that they have planned reveals at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. Hasbro brands such as Transformers, My Little Pony, Magic: The Gathering and Jem and the Holograms will have reveals during the show. A new initiative is planned where the Fans can 3D Print their My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Fan Art. For this, Hasbro has entered a partnership with SuperFanArt. No word yet regarding Transformers.

Transformers: Battle Masters will get expanded to the Marvel Universe.

Also, Mr. Goldner was happy with the success of Transformers: Age Of Extinction. It has helped to increase the Transformers toy sales worldwide. During the Q&A Session he said...
"We feel really good about not only the box office which is growing but movie theaters are built in particularly in emerging markets internationally. I would say that our results in the quarter are very good and we feel very good about the new innovation across both the toy and games category; we put out a very different kind of product line, more expansive line, brought back in a lot of those innovation for the young kids and we see them reflected in our takeaway. And looking out over the remainder of the year, remember for all three of the prior Transformers movies, we did far more business in the 3rd and 4th quarter than in the first half of the year. We would imagine that to be true here as well. And so, as we get into the 3rd and 4th quarter into the entertainment windows and home entertainment, we would continue to believe that we’ll do more business in the 2nd half of the year than the 1st. That’s been the case for this Brand with for Boys Action. But we are pleased thus far about the result."

Building on its tradition of offering an unbeatable assortment of toys for collectors of all ages, Toys“R”Us has revealed its full lineup of exclusive items available at the highly anticipated Comic-Con International in San Diego taking place Thursday, July 24 through Sunday, July 27. Conventioneers will find must-have merchandise based on fan-favorite series, including My Little Pony, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, TRANSFORMERS and more at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2243).

Toys“R”Us will also provide convention goers the opportunity to be among the first to purchase exclusive merchandise not yet available in stores, such as MINECRAFT Creeper Anatomy, MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS ZECORA and TRANSFORMERS Masterpiece Prowl, among others. These first look items will become available in Toys“R”Us stores nationwide later this year.

Fans unable to journey to San Diego this year will also have the opportunity to purchase select items online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention beginning at 10am EST on Thursday, July 24. All merchandise is available while supplies last, so fans should visit Entertainment Earth at booth #2243 or Toysrus.com/ComicConvention early to make purchases.
