DWA-Hasbro Merger Is In The Trash Can
Posted by News Fetcher on November 14 '14 at 11:00 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Hasbro has ended talks with DreamWorks Animation regarding their potential merger. It is said that a sudden drop of Market Share after the rumor has scared the Transformers Toy Maker to say "No" to the proposed merger. Disney; who roughly own 30% of Hasbro's business, also expressed a negative reaction to the deal.

"The breakup of the negotiations followed a sharp slide in Hasbro‘s shares after reports of the talks emerged late Wednesday. The toy maker’s shares had fallen nearly 5 percent since then, closing on Friday at $54.02. The fall in Hasbro’s share price was notable because the company had weighed paying both stock and cash, people briefed on the matter have said.

Also playing a role was a negative private reaction by the Walt Disney Company, which comprises roughly 30 percent of Hasbro’s business through licenses for “Star Wars,” Marvel characters, “Frozen” and the Disney Princesses toy line.

Disney was predictably upset that Hasbro would discuss a merger with DreamWorks Animation — its primary cartoon competitor — only weeks after the toy maker was given a lucrative Princesses contract, having taken it away from Mattel, one of these people said. As a toy partner, Hasbro receives early access to private information about films in Disney’s pipeline."

DreamWorks Animation & Hasbro In Merger Talks?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 12 '14 at 08:15 PM
By Matty from TFW2005:
A bit of interesting speculation is surfacing that revolves around supposed talks between Hasbro and DreamWorks Animation, a division of DreamWorks Studios. According to one article that has surfaced on Deadline, Deadline reports that "DreamWorks Animation is deeply engaged in two potentially game changing negotiations that could transform the company — including one with Hasbro to forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro." The report claims that this deal is at least 60 days off, if it even happens, while both companies are not commenting on the matter and dismissing as rumor and speculation.

You may recall that DreamWorks was involved in the production and distribution of the live action films Transformers (2007) and Revenge of the Fallen, as well as somewhat involved with Dark of the Moon. It's not totally inconceivable that these two companies could potentially be in business discussions.

The biggest question circling around this rumor for now: what does this mean exactly? Is this Hasbro shifting away from physical toys and moving towards more entertainment routes? Are Transformers animation films now more plausible?

Time will tell, as for now this should be treated as a rumor. Speculate away TFW!

Transformers: Rising Mobile Game English Version Enters Beta Test Phase
Posted by News Fetcher on November 12 '14 at 12:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Transformers: Legends Facebook Fan Page is informing us that DeNA has initiated the Beta Testing phase for the English Version of Transformers: Rising Mobile Game.

After the sudden announcement of the cancellation of G. I. Joe: Battleground, Transformers fans were left wondering if the same fate would fall on Transformers: Legends as well. Announcement of a new game titled Transformers: Battle League by the same company didn’t help the matter either.

A while back, Transformers: Rising was announced as well. However, Mobage stated that there is no need to panic; for Transformers: Rising is only targeted to the Asian audience. But this new development seems to be proving otherwise.

Currently, we have to look into another aspect as well… Combiner Wars. It was stated that Transformers: Legends game will play a certain role when Hasbro carries on with this new initiative in 2015. If you have been following Transformers: Rising game, there is already an event called Combiner Wars and Combiner Cards are available on Transformers: Rising whereas Transformers: Legends does not. We can speculate that this new game may be a way to incorporate Hasbro’s plans as a game.

If you want to be a beta tester for the game, Transformers: Legends Facebook Fan Page is giving a direct link to download the Android version of Transformers: Rising. No announcement for the iOS version yet.

RUMOR - Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator Incoming?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 11 '14 at 08:45 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Rumors aplenty these days! This one should make all you combiner fans out there very happy. Following on from the recent Leader Class Ultra Magnus rumor, we now have a rumor originating from our own forums concerning a possible Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator! This has been brought to us by two separate sources, and can be checked out in TFW's ongoing Combiner Wars speculation thread in the Toy Discussion forum.

Take this all with a grain of salt for now, but it it turns out to be legitimate, there is a chance it could be revealed around the time of one of next year's conventions. And of course, a big part of this is speculating as to the specifics of the release .

Read on for yourselves for the full details and discuss what you think after the jump!
