LOVE AND HATE! Two emotions only inches from each other-and TRACKS and NEEDLENOSE have felt them both. On opposite sides of an eons-long war, what happens when they meet again? And what’s ARCEE up to on CYBERTRON?

Steven DeKnight Transformers Cinematic Universe

Not too long Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner stated that the Writers Room for the Transformers Cinematic Universe is going on well. How well? Steven S. DeKnight; one of the writers explains to IGN.

“It’s that wonderful thing where features are now taking a page from television and getting people together to really try and plan things out. It was a wonderful experience. Akiva Goldsman was fantastic and Jeff Pinkner, who’s co-writing the fifth [Transformers] movie with him was phenomenal. Zak Penn… It was just a room full of brilliant, funny, amazing people. And we spent two and a half weeks in physically the best writers room I’ve ever seen in my life. Paramount pulled out all the stops. It was phenomenal! We laughed and joked and told stories and plotted out…”

DeKnight had to keep his secrets about Transformers, noting, “I can’t say what we plotted out, but it was all very exciting and in the next few months we’ll see what moves forward and what doesn’t move forward. But it was a fantastic experience. One of the best experiences of that was when Steven Spielberg popped by one afternoon to just sit and talk and hear what we were working on. Everybody was about to throw up, they were so excited.”

Transformers Tour 2015

Hasbro may not be participating for next year’s UK Toy Fair but they’ve made a promise that they will continue to cater the market. Part of that is the annual Transformers UK Roadshow.

To promote its new range of Transformers toys and digital app, Hasbro kick-started its UK-wide experiential roadshow last weekend at Sunderland International Air Show. Since it was a movie year, last year’s theme was Transformers: Age Of Extinction. This year’s theme is Transformers: Robots In Disguise.

Accessaa UK has this to say:

The pop-up trailer, which is branded in line with the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise animation airing on Cartoon Network, also invites people inside to scan an exclusive app code and earn points to play on the new Robots in Disguise digital game.

Delivered in partnership with experiential agency i2i Marketing, the roadshow will head to Carfest North (31 July –2 August), Bristol International Balloon Fiesta (6-9 August), Birmingham Rotunda Square (14-16 August) and Carfest South (28-30 August).
