TFW2005, the best for you… always! Mr. Brian Goldner (President and CEO) stepped onto the stage for the first presentation. It was an introduction. While he was presenting the crowd was surprised to see the Render of Optimus Prime we’ve seen not too long ago. Not much was revealed.
Up next it was Deb Tomas (Chief Financial Officer). Hub is doing well… very well it seems. 2011 is going to be an awesome financial year for Hasbro. Good Luck Guys!
Big moment came when Mr. Goldner came back to talk. We’ll get Transformers Rescue Bots for little kids (Playskool).
“In Transformers, as of July 1st we have a 3D movie hitting theaters all around the world. We are releasing merchandise earlier based on popular demand from retailers and consumers, with all new toyline with several new segments you’ll get to see. We have an Activision video game which will act as a prequel to the Dark of the Moon Movie” said Mr. Goldner. “New for 2011, we have created a Transformers MMOG in partnership with Net Dragon. Transformers going global with 220 licensees and multiple categories of products.”
“In our own brands, we have Transformers: Dark of the Moon in July 1st. (G. I. Joe 2 coming in 2013)” he continued. “In Transformers if you stick with us on Monday night, we are going to show you much more of the movie and Michael is going to be here with you. But I thought to share with you a commercial you may have missed on the Superbowl. [trailer playing] Imagine what that’s going to look like in 3D.”
