Transformers 4 toys have started appearing in retail despite the fact that the street date is more than a week away. There are several threads on our News And Rumors Forum
and you can find more info at our Transformers Sightings Forum
, so that you can keep a look out.
Other merchandise such as AOE Green Tea Bottles are now appearing as well. Our members have started a small game at the thread
. See if you can come up with what the movie characters would say while drinking the tea.The Grimlock Standee
is going around the world and it seems as though most would see it in front of your local theater. Age Of Extinction Toy Displays

Jagex have released a new video on Youtube to promote the "Founders Program" for the Transformers Universe MOTA. The Founders packs as previously reported have various tiered bonuses tied to them for early adopters, including access to various special items (and for the highest tier, figurines for you to have outside of the game).
Founders also get to play with six new warriors who are being marketed as "early access". The six are Ripraw, Deadheat, Doubletake, Astraea, Anomaly and Derail who sport some rather awesome names in this fan's opinion.
You can find out more about the Founders Packs
here, and you can check out the six early access Transformers in action in the video below:Read Replies (0)

Thanks once again to Apple's iTunes website
, we now have the brief three-page preview for Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #29.
It's also worth noting that this is a good sampling of colorist Joana Lafuente's work. We've recently learned that Joana will be taking over coloring duties from Josh Burcham on the series.
In related news, the first issue of MTMTE's second season, #28, is also out today. Be sure to pick it up!
Check the preview out after the jump - but of course, beware of spoilers that lie within...Read Replies (0)

Transformers 4 Age of Extinction merchandising is in full swing. We revealed
that Frito-Lay is doing a TF4 campaign, and now OREO started their own. They recently
sent a casting call for the Transformers themed commercial they'll shoot to promote the cookies, and the upcoming movie. And now we see the next phase of the campaign, awesome displays!
This one in particular is sent by the Instagram user ganjar95
. It's in Indonesian
, and features the Optimus Prime render we saw on the teaser poster. But with minor changes, notice the mouth plate and the red arms?
We're only 57 days away from the movie, and from the looks of it, we should get the commercial really soon. We'll keep you updated, in the meantime, be sure to check TFW for the best news, first!Read Replies (0)

Over the past few years we've known one fact about Hasbro for sure; If they trademark a name, they have plans for it
This newsie was curious to know what Hasbro has applied for recently and stumbled upon the following names registered just last week.
NIGHTBEAT (Trademark ID: 86261081
OVERLOAD (Trademark ID: 86261109
SUNSTREAKER (Trademark ID: 86261112
ROOK (Trademark ID: 86261119
STRONGARM (Trademark ID: 86261745
You can click on the links above to visit United States Patent And Trademark Office and take a look at the application documents.
We currently have no idea what we'll see in the future regarding the new trademarks. But the fact that the names not registered under a Cartoon might mean it's toy only. So perhaps, Generations Toy Line?

Fun Publications have sent out an email update concerning the Transformers Collectors Club Figure Subscription Service Series 2. The second set of figures is currently being shipped to Fun Publication's headquarters in Dallas Texas, scheduled to reach them by the end of May.
All being well, this means that the second series will begin shipping out to fans starting in the first week of June - regrettably this does potentially mean the first figure might reach a few people while they are away at Botcon over the June 19th - 22nd weekend - so be aware of this possibility.
The TCC Figure Subscription Service consists of six figures, to be sent out in a random order, and they are: Chromedome with Arms Micron Stylor, Rewind, Barricade with Arms Micron Frenzy, Treadshot with Arms Micron Catgut, Fisitron aka Ironfist and the Waspinator / Beast Machines Thrust hybrid, Thrustinator! A special mystery seventh figure will be sent out with the sixth figure to be shipped.
Who will be the first to arrive? Keep it TFW and we'll keep you updated of when these cool figure exclusives make their way into the hands of fans everywhere!Read Replies (0)
