Hasbro has reapplied for several previously known Transformers related Trademarks at United States Patent & Trademark Office.
Filed on April 13th (status date on April 17th), the trademarks are categorized under “Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms“.
And the trademarks are as follows:
Since the 10th year anniversary of Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen is just two years away, we can see a justifiable reason to reapply for the Trademark.
Stealth Force was a major part of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon. However, we currently have no idea regarding as to why the renewal has occurred now.
Dinobot is a fan-favorite from the Beast Wars era and given the fact that the characters are appearing on the recently released mobile game Transformers: Forged To Fight, we may see this particular character appearing in the game along with characters such as Rhinox.
We have some very exciting news for many of our board members who have joined us in playing the awesome and highly addictive mobile game, Transformers: Earth Wars. The developer of the game, Space Ape announced via their Facebook page the upcoming addition of Beast Wars characters!!!
“BEAST WARS: Find out what brings OPTIMUS PRIMAL & MEGATRON to present day Earth. A new series of characters and events, featuring story from TV show writer Simon Furman. Commences 31st March!”
Space Ape has made serious efforts to expand the game playing experience for players since it’s launch by adding in combiners such as Devastator, Superion and Bruticus, dual faction play on a single device and providing players with many of our most beloved G1 characters from which to choose. With the addition of these Beast Wars characters this should open up interest in the game to an entirely new generation of fans!
If you haven’t downloaded this game, give it a shot as it is free to play. Many of our board members have been having a blast playing for months and can offer a lot of advice to new players. Plus, there are many amazing alliances you can join with daily alliance wars as well as group events in which you can win additional prizes including new characters such as Beast Wars Optimus Primal and Megatron.

As promised by the acclaimed developer Kabam! Vancouver, Transformers: Forged To Fight PAX East 2017 trailer is out now.
The trailer is accompanied by the announcement of the global release month which is April.
“Transformers: Forged to Fight is rolling out in April! See how the generations collide in the latest trailer!”
The trailer features an initial 25 character lineup which consists of favorites from G1, Michael Bay Live Action Movies and Beast Wars.
Check out the trailer, after the jump.
PAX East 2017 is scheduled to begin tomorrow and the team at Kabam is working hard to bring us new content from Transformers: Forged To Fight.
Speaking to video game news site A-List Daily, Kabam’s Creative Director Cuz Parry stated that “You are a battle commander who joins with Optimus Prime and the Earth Defense Command to unravel the mysteries of the planet and ascertain who’s really behind the chaos that is happening. Along the way, you’ll collect and level up a team of your favorite Transformers from Generations, the [Live Action] movies, and Beast Wars to start.”
Additionally, content from Transformers: The Last Knight will also be featured on the game: “although we are not a ‘movie game,’ there definitely will be some surprises from The Last Knight entering into Forged to Fight. We’ve had tremendous success with Marvel: Contest of Champions in giving fans of all aspects of the Marvel Universe fun and relevant content, and with Forged we’ll continue that tradition. Characters, environments, unique events . . . who knows?”
Furthermore, Mr. Parry stated that a new Trailer will debut in conjunction with PAX East 2017 which begins 10th March in Boston.
On a slightly related note, Epic Games have developed a VR Racing game under the license of Chevrolet to promote Camaro ZL1 (News Post image).
Finally, we are yet to hear more about the mysterious message by Hasbro regarding a possible tie-in game to Transformers: The Last Knight.
The time is upon us: Masterpiece Cheetor’s release! ZEAMTIGER on Twitter has shared several in-hand images of the Masterpiece figure showing off the range of articulation, facial expressions for both modes, and some group images with some other familiar faces. Beast Wars fans and Masterpiece collectors should enjoy this one!
