Last weekend we brought you the news of Hasbro attending the Nuremberg (German) Toy Fair 2016. Following up to that, Hasbro has spoken to the press regarding what we will see (or rather not see although it’s there) at the event.
Of course Hasbro was mostly tight-lipped when it comes to specific details but gave away some minor details to the Toy News Magazing (UK) January 2016 issue. They have told that they will be bringing back Monopoly Empire featuring Transformers and many other brands like last time (2013).
In another article, Hasbro confirmed that Transformers 5 will be out in 2017 and will continue on for an 8th movie. Stephen Davis, executive VP and Chief Content Officer of Hasbro stated that their newly established Allspark Pictures will have more control over the content of the movies.
Transformers is also featured as a toyline which changed the toy industry forever (we can call it “a toyline which transformed the toy industry”, right?).
