Create a New Combiner Transformer in Next Hasbro “Fan Built Bot” Poll

Transformers Age Of Extinction app 1

Hasbro’s upcoming “Fan Built” poll takes it to the next level. This time around, you won’t just be designing one bot – you’ll take part in creating a Combiner, with all the vehicles that comprise it.

And, instead of using traditional web polls, Hasbro will be updating their existing Transformers: Age of Extinction apps (on iOS and Android) to incorporate the design questions. Over the course of three weekly stages, you’ll get to determine the features of the new Combiner, including the types of vehicles involved, the faction it will join, and eventually the name of the new character. And as they did with Windblade, Hasbro will release the Combiner as a toy, in 2016.

Stay tuned for an official launch date, and in the meantime download the app to play the Transformers: Age of Extinction games and to view movie content. Roll out!

ThreeA Toys Launches Transformers License with Premium Scale Bumblebee

3A Toys Transformers Bumblebee 01

3A Toys has the first figure from its Transformers license available for pre-order starting tonight. It’s the premium scale Bumblebee. He stands 15-inches tall and is hyper-articulated, with 65 points of articulation. Despite the articulation, Bumblebee does not transform – but with this level of sculpted detail I don’t think you would really expect that. He features LED lights, but does not feature sounds – so thankfully there’s no radio soundbites cobbled together so he can “talk” to us. (Thanks for that, Michael Bay!)

My wallet is thanking me that I’m not a hardcore Transformers collector – he tips the scales at $390. If you must have this, you can pre-order the 3A Toys Bumblebee at Bambaland for a 2Q’15 delivery.

Weekend Toy Run: Mimoco USB Drives are Great Stocking Stuffers

Mimoco USB Drives at Woot.com

Mimoco USB drives have returned to Woot.com for a sale that ends on Monday. Yeah, I know – how many of these USB drives do you actually need, what with everything moving to the cloud. But at close to half off, you may want to check out them out. After all, even if you’re not buying for yourself, they’d make great stocking stuffers for your friends and family.

Mimoco has licenses for most of the top pop culture brands, including Star Wars, Star Trek, DC Comics, Transformers, G.I. JOE, and many more. I’m particularly fond of their versions of Admiral Ackbar, Storm Shadow, and Bruce Lee. They’ve even got a Stormtrooper that reveals Han Solo or Luke Skywalker when unmasked. Pretty cool, right?

NYCC 2014: Hasbro Shares Press Pics from ‘Twas the Night Before Party

Marvel Infinite Series Wave 2

The mood lighting at Hasbro’s ‘Twas the Night Before (New York Comic Con) party was great for getting us in a festive mood, but is hell on the smart phone I have convinced myself is better than lugging around a few pounds of camera gear. (How’d I do? Check out my own pics from the event.) But Hasbro planned ahead, sharing press pics of pretty much all the reveals from this evening’s soiree.

And of course, we’re sharing them with you. We’ve got the official pics from Marvel, Star Wars, Transformers, KRE-O, and the latest of the Angry Birds mash-ups – Angry Birds Transformers. Enjoy!
