Earlier this week TFW2005 sister site HISSTANK reviewed
G. I. Joe: Strike Mobile Game by Backflip Studios. Now, the studio has hinted that they are in development of mobile games based on other famous Hasbro properties including Transformers.
Back in 2013 Hasbro acquired this famous Mobile Game Development Company and Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner announced to the Hasbro Investors that the game studio is now in development of several games based on Hasbro IPs, during past financial calls. Pretty soon games based on Nerf and G. I. Joe franchises arrived to mobile devices.
Following the Soft Launch of G. I. Joe: Strike on the Android Platform last month and the expansion of their famous game; DragonVale, Backflip Studios spoke to the media last week and stated:"We plan on supporting DragonVale for a long time. Thanks to our arrangement with Hasbro, we plan on working with smaller but proven studios to bring their IP to life without stretching our core resources that focus on the DragonVale brand. Expect to see many of Hasbro's favorite brands in mobile very soon!"
February last year, the company first hinted
that they are in development of several games for Hasbro. Back then, Transformers, G. I. Joe and Monopoly were announced as planned games. One of the three games is already out with the other two possibly down the pipeline.

The Transformers Hong Kong Facebook community page
has shared a new promotional video
for the Combiner Wars toy line. This action packed video shows off the Combiner Wars toys in motion through some awesome computer animation sequences. If this doesn't get you hyped about this line, I don't know what will.
This is definitively a great way to get more people excited for the toyline, and we hope this will be shown on TV and other popular venues to reach a wider audience. Before that happens though, check out the clip and tell us what you think on the boards!Read Replies (0)

, which seems to be the go-to source regarding recent announcements regarding the Transformers Cinematic Universe of sequels, prequels and spin-offs, has just announced two more writers that have been added to the writer's room headed by Akiva Goldsman. The new additions are Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down
) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. These new writers join the previously announced team of Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Zak Penn, Jeff Pinkner, Robert Kirkman, Christina Hodson, Lindsey Beer, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari.
Akiva Goldsman also explains some of the reasoning behind this writer's room in the article, so check out the link above to read what he has to say. In one paragraph he even mentions Beast Wars as something that could be explored:“If one of the writers discovers an affinity for Beast Wars, they can drive forward on treatments that will have been fleshed out by the whole room,” Goldsman said.
Only time will tell if a spin-off featuring the Maximals and Predacons of Beast Wars will become a reality, but the possibility is mentioned by Mr. Goldsman himself! It appears that they are considering many options for future films.

:Apple's iBooks site
has updated with a brief three page preview of the final part of the Combiner Wars arc, which takes place in next week's Transformers Windblade #3! It's a full-on battle between five mighty combiners - Superion, Defensor, Devastator, Menasor, and... well, that would be telling!
There's two art styles at work in this preview, with the Combiner sequences being done by Marcelo Ferreira and the sequences played out by "normal sized" giant robots by Corin Howell - both bring their own style to the book, and they create an interesting but not displeasing juxtaposition.
Check out the preview, then be sure to pick up the full issue next Wednesday, June 10th, for the galaxy-shaking finale!Read Replies (0)
