Our friends over at Transformers @ The Moon
have shared with us some recent findings from the USPTO. Hasbro have applied for two new trademarks.
One of these trademarks is for Transformers
, under the heading of Entertainment services in the nature of an amusement park ride
so this one we know relates to Transformers the Ride.
The other is under the usual category for toy registration, and this one is for Doom Lock
. For those who can remember the Transformers Energon line from 2004-5, Doom-Lock
was a dinosaur Transformer, a redeco of Cruellock
. Since the only history of the name is connected to dinosaur Transformers, and we've got a new toy of Grimlock in the pipeline for Transformers Fall of Cybertron, could this trademark application be in anticipation of an evil redeco of Grimlock?
Stay tuned for more news as it emerges.
