Age of Extinction Toys Off to a Slow Start? Less Retail Shelf Space?
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '14 at 02:46 PM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Staff edit:

A more detailed article on the slow pace of AOE toys has been linked to us helping us better understand this 50% statistic we're reading about. According to an article posted on The Globe and Mail the slow start for AOE toys and 50% decrease has to do with the amount of retailer shelf space given to these toys and not necessarily sales. From the article:

"The fourth Transformers film, which is set to be released in late June, got half the shelf space at Toys R’ Us, Target and Wal-Mart as the movie’s third installment, Mr. Johnson said – this may have disappointed investors who were expecting the big-name movie to drive demand. He attributes the reduced space to increased caution on the part of retailers, and a certain amount of customer weariness."

Our original report based on the New York Post article suggested toy sales were down 50%, however the more detailed article linked above suggests the decrease we're seeing is based on the retailer shelf space given to the AOE toy line.

Original post:

According to an article by the New York Post published earlier this week, the US toy industry is suffering from slow sales on figures based around blockbuster films, which the article calls “action-figure fatigue.”

The article references three big blockbuster films supported by toy lines this summer which include the recently released The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but also includes a snippet of our main focus here on TFW: Age of Extinction. The article goes on to give some statistical comparison between the DOTM toy line launch and AOE's launch:

By Red Goblin from TFW2005:
Happy Trailer Tuesday. We first reported it's rating a while ago, then some our members got to see it (and still can) before Disney's Maleficent. Now here it is, with its full glory. CBMTrailers uploaded Transformers 4 Age of Extinction's ''PG'' friendly trailer, but in Russian.

It's mostly an alternate version of the Payoff trailer with a few additions like extended scenes with Bumblebee, a pack of ''Wolf''s, and a hilarious encounter between Hound and Stanley Tucci's Joshua. Check it out!

Botcon 2014 Devcon New Image
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '14 at 02:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Botcon Facebook page has updated with a new image of the Botcon 2014 exclusive figure, Devcon. Devcon is a retooled version of Generations Scourge, with a new head. He's the first time the Autobot bounty hunter - from the Generation 1 episode "The Gambler" - has been represented in plastic. We think he looks particularly sharp - what do you think?

Devcon will be available in a boxed set with Scorponok, Cannonball, Ginrai and Ferak at Botcon 2014. There's still a handful of attendee sets left for this year's Botcon in Pasadena, California - find out more at the Botcon homepage!

Age of Extinction Toys Off to a Slow Start?

The article references three big blockbuster films supported by toy lines this summer which include the recently released The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but also includes a snippet of our main focus here on TFW: Age of Extinction. The article goes on to say:

The toys licensed around the next “Transformers” film is nearly 50 percent below levels seen before the release of the previous franchise film in 2011 [Dark of the Moon].

Is this bad news for the Transformers franchise? Are kids and collectors being "milked" by the same characters on the toy shelves? Is this nothing to worry about and just a sign of changing interests?

Let's hear what you have to say about this trend. Sound off after the jump.

Transformers Hero Mashers Released in Australia
Posted by News Fetcher on June 02 '14 at 01:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Hero Mashers figures have made their retail debut in Perth, Australia. Ozformers member Omega Metro spotted them on shelves in Australian chain Toy World - they retail at AUS $19.99, with Bumblebee and Starscream among those spotted. The series allows you to mix and match the body parts of not only the Transformers Hero Mashers, but also the other series like the Marvel Hero Mashers - so a Doctor Doom / Starscream hybrid is now within the realms of possibility if you so choose! Hopefully this Australian retail sighting means a US sighting is equally not too far off.

Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark Gameplay Trailer
Posted by News Fetcher on June 02 '14 at 01:16 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
In a slew of news and trailers last week, we seem to have missed the latest trailer for Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark. The video is titled gameplay though it's not a pure video rip of actual gameplay on a system from what we can tell. It does feature Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime giving a nice intro though. Check out the video below, along with the box art for all the systems after the break!

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark will be dropping on June 24th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, 3DS, and WiiU.

It's time for us to share another Transformers toy gallery with you, and for tonight's update, we would like to draw your attention to this gallery of the newly releases Generations Legends two-pack of Skrapnel with Reflector.

Carrying on the trend of releasing characters who were of smaller stature in the original Generation 1 toyline in the Legends class, we have this update of Skrapnel. He is extremely well done, with ball-joints all over the place including shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. He's even got neck articulation which you do not see often in this size class. His transformation is straightforward but effective, and produces a cool insect mode which is a very nice classics style take on the Generation 1 alternate form.

Partnered with Skrapnel is a little Micromaster sized Reflector. Reflector was originally three robots who merged into a single camera, and for this outing, Reflector is an update of the middle robot who inspired the animation model, Viewfinder. He "transforms" by laying down, and his alternate form has been upgraded to a modern SLR digital camera. He also features a third weapon mode for any Transformer with 5mm fists to wield, and in a nice touch the gun mode is based on the Generation 1 Shrapnel gun accessory. One complaint with Reflector is the fact that in camera mode, the 5mm peg is on top of the camera, so there is no way to have other Transformers hold the camera mode right side up. It would have been nice if there were a way to have other Transformers hold the camera, much like how Skywarp did in the More than Meets the Eye pilot episodes of Generation 1.

Australia's Perth Mint will shortly be offering some limited edition Transformers Age of Extinction commemorative coins. These coins come in three styles - Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Lockdown - and are made of 99% silver. They feature a lenticular effect which makes it appear as if the robot on the coin transforms into their vehicle form. Each coin is limited to 5,000 pieces, although there's a high asking price of AUS $104.55 per coin or AUS $286.36 for the set. They can be purchased direct from the Perth Mint here.
