TRANSFORMERS Brand

Throughout the year in 2012, kids and fans of the globally popular TRANSFORMERS brand will get to experience the “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” property in a variety of new and exciting ways. In February, the new animated series TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS and the second season of the hit animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, both from Hasbro Studios, will debut on The Hub television network. And, for the first time ever beginning in March, most of the TRANSFORMERS action figure expressions will adopt the TRANSFORMERS PRIME styling to complement the award winning series. Also in March, Hasbro will introduce a new toy segment called TRANSFORMERS BOT SHOTS, a whole new way to play out TRANSFORMERS battles. Available in favorite characters like OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE, kids can choose their power, crash into battle and defeat their opponent. TRANSFORMERS BOT SHOTS automatically convert when you crash ‘em! Sold one per pack, fans can collect 44 different BOT SHOTS figures across the product line. Then in May, fans will have another new way to experience the TRANSFORMERS brand with the launch of the highly anticipated new motion-based thrill ride TRANSFORMERS: THE RIDE-3D, opening at Universal Studios Hollywood. To finish the year with even more entertainment experiences, TRANSFORMERS fans will be able to enjoy the much buzzed about new video game TRANSFORMERS: Fall of Cybertron from Activision and High Moon studios as well as the highly anticipated TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE MMO from Jagex both launching in Fall. Roll Out!

Interview with More Than Meets the Eye Writer, James Roberts
Posted by News Fetcher on February 09 '12 at 07:45 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Craveonline has posted an interview with James Roberts, IDW Publishing's wrtier for one of their new ongoing Transformer titles; More Than Meets The Eye. In this very in depth interview Roberts refers to TF:MTMTE as "an unholy hybrid of Dark Star, Justice League International, Doctor Who and Arrested Development. Heck, you can throw in Magnolia and X-Files in there too. And Community, for that matter. Essentially, MTMTE is what happens when a superhero team book collides with a space opera sitcom"
Roberts also goes drops some interesting nuggets of info such as a Dinobot origin story he submitted to IDW, before he began working for the publisher, that almost happened (and maybe one day will!") and after speaking with fellow writer Simon Furman on the upcoming Regeneration One. In which he says Simon hints at a few plans that are up his sleeves that were so good in Roberts' eyes that is blew his mind and made him want to burst into tears, rip up the scripts for the first few issues of MTMTE, roll up his sleeves and think, 'Okay, Furman. Round 2.'

There is loads more information from James Roberts in the interview that any current fan of IDW Transformers or their Last Stand Of The Wreckers series should definitely take a few minutes to thoroughly read the whole thing. You can do so by clicking the link above or the title bar.

By ORIO from TFW2005:
Michael Bay's monster motion picture has scored itself some new shiny trophies in the awards category. The Visual Effects Society recently held their 10th Annual awards ceremony and Dark of the Moon won two out of the five nominations. Dark of the Moon took home the awards for:

Outstanding Models in a Feature Motion Picture: The Driller

Outstanding Created Environment in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture: 155 Wacker Drive

Unfortunately the award for "Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture" went to Planet of the Apes. The VAS prefers Monkey not Trukk apparently! (Yes, I know apes aren't monkeys) Take a look at all the winners here.

Discuss on the 2005 boards by hitting the title bar!
