Hasbro Studios Announces International Distribution Deal with Cartoon Network for “Transformers: Cyberverse”

Hasbro has sent over a press release announcing international distribution of “Transformers: Cyberverse”.  I’m about six episodes behind at the moment, but I like this. Anything that promotes the current Transformers media is a good proposition.  Hasbro Studios Announces International Distribution Deal with Cartoon Network for Transformers: Cyberverse   Transformers: Cyberverse to Roll Out to Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America Late 2018   Burbank, CA, November 20, 2018 – Hasbro Studios, the Los Angeles-based entertainment distribution division of Hasbro, Inc.

Transformers BotBots Are Coming, and You Can’t Handle the Cute

After last week’s interesting leak of BotBots, we finally get to see exactly what we’re dealing with. And what we’re dealing with is the cutest batch of Transformers since… Uh… Hmm. Not sure we’ve had any Transformers this cute. Been almost thirty five years, it’s about time we did. BotBots is a new line to be fully unveiled at London MCM Comic Con later this week, and it looks like it will give Shopkins a run for it’s money. Gone are Autobots and Decepticons. In their place are Energon-infused every-day items such as fast food, bathroom fixtures, tech gadgets, and

Toy Review: Transformers Titans Return Fastclash

I never had the Autobot clones, and I only played with the Decepticon clones once or twice.  However, I was still excited to see that these box sets were going to give us two (and most likely all) of the clones.  In the “Chaos on Velocitron” set, Fastclash (formerly Fastlane) makes his debut. He is…. interesting. He’s interesting from a design standpoint. Neither a Deluxe or a Legend class, he exists in new size class Hasbro has said was created for the clones.  So, rather than try to shoehorn him into a size too big or too small, they went

Some Quick Thoughts on Titan Master Rodimus Prime

Just had the chance to examine Titan Master Rodimus Prime from the “Chaos on Velocitron” set. This is the first diecast Titan Master we have seen here, so I wasn’t sure what to think.   It’s definitely a unique TM figure. It doesn’t look different at first glance, but when I picked it up, I could tell it was not the same. First, it was cooler to the touch.  Having been in my basement for a few hours, it was slightly cooler than room temperature, and the difference between the metal and plastic pieces was apparent. Second, the weight was off.

More Than Meets The Ears with Transformers Music News

Over the past week, Transformers fans have had not one, not two, but three announcements regarding TF-related music. First, Hasbro and Sony released a new album Transformers Roll Out last week to coincide with Record Store Day.  This new album contains tracks inspired by the continuous battles of the Autobots and Decepticons and features rock, alternative, and alt-pop artists, including Beck, Elle Rae, and Crash Kings.  The press release is at the end of the post. It’s an interesting idea, to be sure.  I’ve not been a huge fan of “inspired-by” albums.  Usually, I stick to the actual music from
