Here’s a tiny bit of news from the International Licensing Expo 2013
Paramount has revealed
their Transformers 4 Teaser Poster and it’s basically the TF4 Logo which we've seen before, followed by the release date.
However, we are yet to see what is over there at the Hasbro Booth. They too may have a Teaser Poster of their own and related Licensed Merchandise for the upcoming movie.
If you are at the International Licensing Expo 2013, make sure to take some pics of the upcoming products related to Transformers and share with us.Read Replies (0)

CenoKibble has dropped by our 2005 Boards to share with us some in-hand images of the Auto Assembly 2013 and TFcon 2013 shared exclusives, Robot Manuel X / Prototype X and Project Z / Robot Basil Z. The duo, recolored versions of Mech Ideas popular unofficial Wreckers Apex and Geminus, are inspired by Argentinian Generation 2 toys Robot Man X and Robot Man Z / Salt Man Z. These images also show that these toys come with the added bonus of chromed weapons (and chromed drills on Z).
Both toys will be available at TFcon and Auto Assembly 2013 this summer, and each is limited to 500 pieces worldwide.

Did you know that during the Transformers Generation 1 Commemorative Series of the mid 2000s, Hasbro tried to get the original Generation 1 Megatron back on to Toys R Us shelves? It's true! However, such a reissue carried with it a huge cost - namely a shockingly bright, un-Megatron deco that none the less somehow manages to be strangely appealing.
By way of The Spacebridge on Facebook
, we can share a look at this aborted Megatron reissue. What you see here is the only way Hasbro could have even attempted to get Megatron back on store shelves at Toys R Us, with an orange and metallic blue deco (It is worth saying that in spite of this, the toy still got rejected for a release because it looked too much like a gun).
