Hub Network Rebranding Official Info And New Hasbro Program Times

Posted on 09-25-2014 at 10:38 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Prime
Hasbro-Discovery-Hub-TV-Network-Discovery-Family-Channel Hasbro has officially announced the rebranding of the Hasbro-Discovery Hub Network to the new Discovery Family.

We received a press release from Hasbro and they have announced several changes to the program lineup.

The Hub Network will become Discovery Family Channel effective October 13, 2014. The network will broaden its programming focus to serve families in primetime and continue to showcase Hasbro Studios award-winning children's content in daytime.

During the daytime, Discovery Family Channel will offer a robust line up of brand new Hasbro Studios' series as well as beloved library programming, including MY LITTLE PONY, LITTLEST PET SHOP and TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS, while during primetime, the network will serve a growing family audience that began to develop under The Hub Network. Primetime programming will draw from Discovery's three decades of leadership in creating the highest-quality, real-world content that appeals to the entire family in the Natural History, Adventure, Animals and Science genres. Initial series will include SUPERHUMAN, TIME WARP, FLYING WILD ALASKA, AFRICA and EXTREME ENGINEERING: BIGGEST REVEALS.

Also, Hasbro’s ownership stake in the channel will drop from 50% to 40% as the programming focus shifts to Hasbro-produced children’s fare in the daytime hours and family-friendly fare in primetime.

Variety reports that Hasbro may turn towards Video-On-Demand or Digital Distribution of their shows in the future:
“Hasbro, meanwhile, gains more flexibility to sell new and existing shows to digital outlets such as Netflix and Amazon. Kidvid is a huge component of overall viewing for the SVOD heavyweights, even though it doesn’t get nearly as much attention in pop culture as original series aimed at adults.”

Hasbro also commented on their future activities for Movies and TV Shows:
“The toymaker is investing big in production through its Burbank-based Hasbro Studios arm. “We are continuing to develop partnerships with the big studios for some of our biggest brands,” [Hasbro CEO Brian] Goldner said. “And you’ll see us developing movies with smaller budgets and strong filmmakers.””

Transformers 2015 Toyline Details Leaked

Posted on 09-13-2014 at 05:34 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
27467266d1410639055-tf-rid-toyline-details-leaked-cyberverse-back-1 Some scans of a Hasbro products line catalog have been posted in the Transformers Colombia Facebook group. It's important to note that these listings relate to Colombia only, so there may be other toys or lines which are not planned to be released in Colombia which are therefore not listed here.

With that in mind, let's dive in and take a look at what is shown. The first headline is that in Colombia, Robots in Disguise will air on Cartoon Network and will premiere on 15 March 2015 - implying that the as-yet unknown US premiere may take place sometime before this.

The first of the three sheets shows us the Robots in Disguise 2015 line, as revealed at San Diego Comic Con 2014. The four assortments are: Warrior (Deluxe analog assortment, details are misprinted with the one-step info); Legion (Legends class figures, assortment is said to contain 12 figures which convert in 20 steps or fewer, which seems an exaggeration considering such small toys generally do not have such involved transformations). The Hyperchange assortment is also listed and described as having three-step conversions and six figures in the assortment - so similar to the current Power Battlers line. Lastly the Robots in Disguise One-Step Changers are also listed, with 14 toys said to be in the assortment.

The second and third sheets cover side-line items. The Titan figures look set to continue, with 12 inch Hero figures being planned both with and without electronic features, and a series of 6 inch Titan Guardians also being planned. The picture accompanying this listing suggests there will be a 5 pack of 6 inch Titan Guardian Seekers - Skywarp, Starscream, Thundercracker, Sunstorm and Acid Storm. There's also some information on Hero Mashers, but nothing previously unseen there (yet)

Once again a big thanks to Transformers Colombia for sharing this with the fan community.

Protectobots Emergency Rescue Streetsmart In-Hand Images

Posted on 09-05-2014 at 05:59 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
Streetsmart08 TFW2005 member Maz dropped us a line to let us know that he has some in-hand images of the Protectobots Emergency Response three-pack's Streetsmart on his blog. Streetsmart along with the rest of the Emergency Rescue pack are reuses of Transformers Prime toys, in this case the Beast Hunters Prowl tooling. At this moment in time it's not clear where this set is intended for a release, though the general thought is these could be Asian market releases or as-yet unannounced store exclusives.

In the meantime, check out these sharp in-hand images!

Licensing-Expo-2014-Transformers-4-Age-Of-Extinction-Robots-In-Disguise-Angry-Birds Licensing Expo 2014 began today in Las Vagas and it is the source of new materials we keep getting these days; ranging from upcoming toy info to Movie stills.

The reveal of Transformers: Robots In Disguise and Transformers: Angry Birds is also a part of the countdown towards the Expo.

Prior to the expo, we learned that Hasbro will be there to showcase future initiatives for some of their most popular brands. Today, Hasbro revealed Movie Posters of Magic The Gathering, Jem And The Holograms, G. I. Joe 3 and Ouija.

But we all know what you really want to hear… Transformers.

Thanks to various Business websites, we've rounded up some info. Previous rumors told us that there would be some info about Transformers: Robots In Disguise. Sure enough, there seems to be some info revealed. However, since these are business sites, they do not care much for the stuff we care. So, we really can't blame them for not bringing us Transformers info.

But like a blessing, Hasbro just sent us a Press Release with details explaining what's there at the Expo. Thanks Hasbro. Read what they have to say, after the jump.
