Prime 1 Studio Drift and Bumblebee Statues Images

Posted on 07-27-2014 at 02:10 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
iofn64B Autobase Aichi has shared some pictures from the Prime 1 Studio booth at the Summer Wonderfest 2014 in Japan. Their Transformers line was there in full force, with all releases shown including a first look at a prototype of an Age of Extinction Drift statue. The Autobot samurai is still at an early stage, and is the seventh planned statue from Prime 1, but already looks very sharp.

Also on show were all Prime 1's other releases, which means we get a new look at their upcoming Bumblebee, Matrix prop replica, and the Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream busts. Check out a selection of the new images after the break.

New Official Images Of Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime

Posted on 07-16-2014 at 11:10 PM by Shin Densetsu under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
27453636d1405567182-new-images-platinium-edition-silver-knight-optimus-prime-image Megatronus 209 has spotted new, official images of Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime on Facebook and has shared them here. The content has become unavailable so we are not entirely sure who the source is.

Unlike previous stock images of this Platinum Silver Optimus, these new images show chrome and metallic silver paint. The images also have Hasbro's typical "digitally airbrushed to hell" look so we aren't entirely sure if this is indicative of the final product(with regards to chrome and metallic silver paint). If you've seen the 1st edition Optimus, think of the chrome from that, carried over to this but with red flames on the chest.

Read on to check out the images.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Toyline Underperforming?

Posted on 07-16-2014 at 03:40 PM by Mechafire under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
4039720150569047F52BE572DD872B3E_1397322518 As had been reported a short while back, it seemed that the Transformers: Age of Extinction toyline was off to a somewhat rocky start. And now, we have even more evidence to back that up. Disney Pixar Cars website TakeFiveADay has posted an interesting article examining the current state of movie toylines and toylines in general, of course focusing a lot on the current AOE line. Unfortunately, despite the movie itself performing well, it seems the toyline isn't, and it doesn't sound like the outlook is positive either. From the article:

"The #1 licensed toy line in America usually generates about $400-$500 million in sales a year. [...] At the rate the toys are selling, Transformers might still crack $225 million which is a lot but when you create inventory to sell $500 million dollars worth of toys? Thatís not so good"

It should be noted that this isn't just related to Transformers; toyline sales in general have been on the decline for a while now. This could potentially be bad news for not just Transformers fans, but fans of toys in general. The reasons for the decline in sales are numerous, and you can read them and discuss after the jump.
