Hasbro Applies For A Go-Bots Movie And Toyline Trademark

Posted on 01-26-2015 at 02:43 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
The-Gobots Following the success of the first Michael Bay Live Action Transformers Movie back in 2007, Hasbro worked with movie studios around the world to bring your childhood toys into the big-screen. From toys such as G. I. Joe to board games like Battleship and Ouija, Hasbro is a live action movie machine with more live action movies such as Jem And The Holograms and Candyland down the pipeline.

It so happens that TFW2005 has stumbled upon another possible live action movie and a toyline from Hasbro. Once rivals of the Transformers Franchise (1984), Gobots became the property of Hasbro when they acquired Tonka; the original creators of Gobots.

On January 21st and on January 24th, Hasbro has applied for a new Go-Bots trademark (this is not a renewal) under "distribution of motion pictures, ongoing television programs" and "Toys, games and playthings, namely, toy vehicles and accessories for use therewith".

You can check out the Trademark documents from the United States Patent & Trademark Office here and here.

Maketoys Announces RE:MASTER SERIES - Cupola (Chomedome), Gun Dog (Hound), and Hellfire (Inferno)

Posted on 01-26-2015 at 08:46 AM by Matty under 3rd Party Unlicensed
15751665463_ca2728f6e7_b The Maketoys website updated earlier this morning to announce a new line of transforming robots: The RE:MASTER SERIES. This line is being speculated by our members as being a fit into the current line of Masterpiece styled Transformers, a trend that is taking the third party collecting world by storm. From Maketoys:

"Re:master " , in a time where scale is everything.....Re:master is a new series to bring a new twist, new gimmicks, and maybe even a new scale to the world of transforming robots. An instant classic to an already bright and vibrant world of robots, we hope Re:master will have a place in everyone's hearts......and on their shelves!

No physical prototypes are available yet, but Maketoys showed off three blacked out silhouettes, and although we all would love to see a product shown off in full for the reveal this news is still exciting enough given the characters announced: RM-01 Cupola (Chromedome), RM-02 Gun Dog (Hound), RM-03 Hellfire (Inferno). Click on the individual links to take you to TFW's discussion thread of each figure.

So what do you think of Maketoys apparent entrance into Masterpiece scaled third party figures? Excited for the characters? Let us know what you think!

Rumor - Generations Legends Gnaw & Brawn set for Release in 2015?

Posted on 01-25-2015 at 02:56 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
gnaw_1226773130 TFW2005 boards member griffin-of-oz has brought something interesting to our attention today - Bidoofdude of Ozformers.com reportedly wrote to Hasbro asking if Generations Legends Gnaw with Gnash and Brawn with Mudslinger would still be released. We had last heard of these figures before via leaked listings, but we haven't heard of them since, leading to some speculation that they may have been cancelled. However, Hasbro responded that they are indeed still planned to come out, and will be released some time in 2015, likely as part of the Combiner Wars line-up.

You can read the exchange below:

I've noticed that the Generations Legends Class figures for this year skip numbers #11 through #17. Is there a reason for this? Is it related to the listed Legends Brawn with Mudslinger and Gnaw with Gnash that seemingly didn't happen?

Could we be seeing Brawn (and less importantly, Gnaw) as a Legends figure in the Combiner Wars toyline in the coming year, as he is the only 1984 minibot without a figure yet?


To which Hasbro responded with:

There are plans for the distribution of these characters in 2015, unfortunately I do not have an exact date of arrival.

Take this with a grain of salt for now, but if true, we could very likely be seeing these figures at the rapidly-approaching New York Toy Fair.
