Peter Cullen And Frank Welker Talks Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on June 20 '13 at 06:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Zap2It has posted an interview with the legendary duo; Peter Cullen and Frank Welker from the Grand Opening of Transformers: The Ride - 3D, Universal Orlando. If you missed our coverage, you can find it right here.

Speaking to Zap2It, Mr. Cullen spoke a bit about Optimus Prime's redesign for the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers 4:

"I'm always fascinated by the design changes because what could be more realistic than something that transforms and can change itself," Cullen told Zap2it. "And cars change every year. They come off the design tables and the clay models and before you know it you've got a brand new look to a car. I like it that way. I'm excited to find out what Mr. Bay is going to do for the next look. After all, he's always going to look like that [the Optimus Prime statue on Transformers: The Ride 3D]. He's always going to transform into something pretty close to that."

Meanwhile, Mr. Welker is waiting to see if he'll return for the 4th installment:

"Yet to be determined," Welker admitted. "I'm not sure. I did the last two. I'm waiting to see and usually I don't know until the very end, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what Michael does. He always outdoes himself, so he's got big shoes to feel when he's got to fill his own shoes. It will be a lot of fun to see what he comes up with."

Peter Cullen also talked some emotionally powerful words about the Franchise:

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Today is the last day of International Licensing Expo 2013 and already Hasbro has scored some big deals with other companies worldwide.

The biggest name associated with Hasbro is undoubtedly: Transformers. Yesterday, we announced Hasbro’s plan to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Transformers with publishing. With books being Food for your mind, why not have some food for your tummy?

Today at the Expo, Hasbro came to an agreement with Brand Licensing Team (BLT) for food and beverage extensions for various Hasbro properties in the U.S. and Canada, including Transformers.

“For Hasbro, the alignment with Brand Licensing Team made sense because of their long-term strategic approach and experience in the food and beverage industry,” says Simon Waters, senior vice president, global brand licensing and publishing, Hasbro. “We were impressed with their go-to-market plans and ideas to infuse our beloved Hasbro brands into the lives of consumers in a new way.”

Brazilian apparel retailer LEADER has also extended its relationship with Hasbro to expand the Transformers, My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop lines into categories such as footwear and accessories this holiday season.

We are yet to see what Hasbro is showcasing at the International Licensing Expo 2013, but enjoy their Company Entertainment and Licensing Video (which they debut for the 2011 International Licensing Expo) below:

A TV spot for the next all-new Transformers Prime Beast Hunters episode, Evolution, has begun airing on Hub Network. Major spoilers in this one, as we are treated to a tease of a long-awaited event. The battle is about to change, to evolve to a new level, when Transformers Prime returns.

The TV spot states "all new this Friday" however TV listings have Evolution as not airing until next Friday, 28 June. We suggest checking local listings so you do not miss out, this one is going to be a cracker!

Due to the spoileriffic nature of the preview you can check it out after the break!
