Transformers PRIME Invades Broadway

Transformers-PRIME-Broadway-01
Transformers PRIME has invaded a New York City block! With the promotional push for the series gaining steam(and even a New Transformers PRIME Advertisement on the back of some new comics), a new billboard using these Transformers PRIME HUB Background Images has been spotted on a whole city block on Broadway! In addition, 2005 boards member ILoveDinobot has also reported seeing the following:

Also Times Square Toys R' Us's outside is completely covered in TF Prime. Like it's a corner of the block and looks like half a hexagon, one side says "Transformers Prime", one side is all the Autobots and one side is all the Transformers.

On a related note, yes Transformers PRIME toys are coming but not in the near future. As with fellow HUB series GI Joe Renegades, toys for the respective series will not be available until Fall 2011 at the earliest. More images after the jump!

I love it when companies do advertising on such a large scale. Looking forward to the pics.

I'm trying to remember how to get them from my phone to the computer ^^; I think I got it though! If someone can help me, I need to get pictures from my verizon phone to the "my verizon" website, it would help, google is not helping.

EDIT: FINALLY WORKED!

I think it's disappointing that though PRIME is advertised at TRU, the toys are a long ways out.

Oh damn. I typo-ed my statement, it should be "one side is all decepticons" not all transformers. ^^; derp.

I love that we're actually seeing a Transformers cartoon getting just as much publicity as one of the movies.

Transformers Animated had a huge wall, 3d pop out thing INSIDE the Times Square TRU, but never on the outside. This is pretty cool.

Makes sense too, they won't have to divide the royalties like they have to with Paramount for the Bay movies.

The hype machine kicking in.

Even though I don't really think the show looks as movie-esque as some feared, this poster is probably close enough to be mistaken for TF3 by the casual observer.
Yobuster
Wow those advertisements look way awesome and it being advertised at TRU! Got to be the best but........ hold on....... toys are not available yet!!! It's like the mis-timing with TF Animated again.

Sad to say, with the hype for the show, the kids around that area and seeing those advertisements are going to want to buy TF Prime toys unless they just want Transformers toys period and can't tell the difference.

Why does this feel like some mis-step/mis-timing by Hasbro? Surely their strategic advisors must have figured that out by now. *unless they are having an initial secret quick release of toys? i.e. just release TF Prime Bumblebee and Prime first to wet our appetites? One can only hope i guess.
ILoveDinobot
I wish I took a picture of the Toys R Us now, but I didn't want to look like one of those tourist who take pictures in the middle of Times Square. .

I reckon it'll give an extra push to all TF merchandise currently on the market.

A lot of shelfwarming TF:Cybertron and Classics were shifted back when TF1 hit. Plus, it's not just an advertisement for Transformers, it's an advertisement for their whole TV network. They want to give people something to tune in for.

Thanks for the pics ILoveDinobot. I'm glad that the show is getting such a big promotional push, but I'm also disappointed that we have to wait so long for the toys.

No problem! I am glad to see promotions in places I didn't expect to find them as well.

Ok TF collectors, I m kinda of new to these opinions/facts. But to my experience collecting transformers for the past 23 years and seeing how HASBRO works, I bet my chiguaguas that this teaser banner is a cover-up for the toys to come. "THEY WANT US TO BE DESPERATE FOR THE NEW FIGURES" !!!But what do I know!!!!

If they had TFP toys coming out between now and Christmas, we would've already seen something by now.

There will be toys, but next year at the earliest. October, according to Hasbro.

My guess is this initial mini-series 'event' is primarily to get an audience to tune into the Hub, where they'll be exposed to advertising for the other shows, and the toys that are currently available.

The banner will probably be at TRU until after black friday. Good promo spot for Hasbro.

Though they use the store facade all the time for advertisements/promos. War for Cybertron had a big promo back in July
