Transformers Asia Reissue of Hasbro Masterpiece Optimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '14 at 04:15 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Coming via Transformers Asia, it looks like the Hasbro version of the Masterpiece MP-10 mold will be seeing a reissue in select Asia countries this October 2014. The Hasbro version you may recall was the very difficult to find Toys 'R Us exclusive. Unfortunately no price has been provided yet, so we can only speculate given past Asia exclusive prices.

We'll update you with more information as it becomes available.

Transformers - A Key Player To Save The Toy Industry?
Posted by News Fetcher on August 02 '14 at 10:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
This is not a traditional News Post, but rather a something to read and discuss for the weekend. Seeking Alpha, a website dedicated to keeping an eye on financial markets reports that Hasbro's Transformers would be a key player to save the Toy Industry.

With Smartphones, Tablets, Consoles and PCs, it is said that more and more kids are turning away from toys and are seeking digital entertainment each day. Not to exaggerate things but, people do question whether this is an Age Of Extinction… for the Toys.

Nancy Kross of Seeking Alpha highlights that Hasbro and Mattel are the two most prominent companies in the US toy market and highlights the importance of Transformers: Robots In Disguise as well as other toys when it come to save the industry. To quote…

"The previous year was not a bad one for Mattel alone, but even Hasbro sales faced a setback during the holiday season. The company’s revenues remained flat with $4.08 billion in 2013. Net earnings for the year were $286.2 million, or $2.17 per share, compared to $336.0 million, or $2.55 per share in 2012. Weaker sales in North American market were the main reason for the company’s falling profits, however, the company still fared better than its competitor Mattel owing to improved performance in emerging markets. In the US and Canada, sales declined by 5%, whereas revenues were up by the same proportion in international markets. The performance in 2014 is, however, expected to be better owing to new toy lines like “Transformers: Robots in Disguise,” based on action movies introduced this year and the re-imagined Littlest Pet Shop, My Little Pony Pop and the all-new My Little Pony Equestria Girls product expected to be launched in the second half of the year."

Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Takara AD31 Ultimate Power Mode Optimus Prime Prototype Image

By Mechafire from TFW2005:
HKGTF's Facebook page has uploaded something very interesting for us this morning - a prototype image of Takara's AD31 Ultimate Power Mode Optimus Prime figure. This is a retool of the already-existing Transformers: Age of Extinction Leader Class Optimus Prime mold with new, more movie-accurate head, chest, skirt, arm, sword, and foot sculpts, making this quite possibly the most screen-accurate transforming version of the Age of Extinction Optimus Prime model we've gotten yet.

Apple's iBooks store has updated with a preview of the first few pages from the upcoming Transfomers: Primacy issue #1. The series is the conclusion of the Flint Dille penned trilogy that began with Autocracy and continued through Monstrosity - charting the slow descent of Cybertron into the great war, and the rise of the key figures in the conflict. Now we come to the final break into the civil war - Optimus Prime vs Megatron!

Check out the preview and see for yourself!
