Transformers: Legends Game Event - Rules Of Disengagement - UPDATE!

Posted on 02-25-2015 at 02:07 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
tumblr_inline_nkapygXkBi1slbwep Pre-Registration for the next DeNA Transformers: Legends Team Event; Rules Of Disengagement is now live.

Event Description:

Aboard a dimly lit DECEPTICON spacecraft, TARN turns to KAON and asks for a situation update. KAON reports that everything is going to plan, and that they should be close to their targets soon. The leader of the DECEPTICON Justice Division nods, and prepares to set their ship down on planet Clemency.

On the surface, BLACK SHADOW seeks refuge in the wrecked hulks left behind from a previous war. On the run for taking bribes from the AUTOBOTS to destroy a fleet of DECEPTICON War Worlds, the Phase Sixer stops and takes a breath inside a ruined ship when he runs across FLYWHEELS and the other Scavengers.

As the group finishes their conversation, a crunching noise outside alerts them to the presence of TESARUS, VOS, and the rest of the DJD. Unwilling to roll over and die, FLYWHEELS and BLACK SHADOW draw their weapons and prepare for battle.

Will BLACK SHADOW and FLYWHEELS escape the clutches of the DECEPTICON Justice Division? Or will TARN and his deadly crew eliminate their targets with extreme prejudice? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Rules of Disengagement”!

Update 02/26/2015:

"Dear TRANSFORMERS Legends Fans,

The Ultra Legendary reward cards are here! Beware, he is more powerful than any of his predecessors! Can you defeat the mighty TARN? Can you surpass the strength and power of this new challenge? Who will rise to the top?

Roll out,

The Rise and Fall of The Hub and Hasbro's New TV Strategy

Posted on 02-25-2015 at 09:29 AM by Matty under Other News
HUB_Logo_3D_1 It's no secret by now, The Hub Network simply did not pan out as planned. When launched, many Transformers fans had high hopes for the Hasbro owned TV network. Unfortunately as time went on, a short amount of time, reality set in that The Hub was simply not making money fast enough.

Adweek ran a story about the rise and fall of Hasbro's TV attempt, specifically "what went wrong with The Hub, and what the toymaker hopes will go right" in the near future.

With Robots In Disguise premiering on Cartoon network on March 14, this may be a good time to revisit the background of The Hub's downfall with interview pieces from Hasbro executives and other industry leaders, while also taking a look at Hasbro's plan for the near future.
