A pair of new Transformers have hit UK toy shelves. It’s time to bring on the baddies, as Robots in Disguise’s latest Legion assortment has hit UK retail bringing with it Legion class versions of Decepticons Cyclonus and Heatseeker. This pair has yet to make it to US retail – so here is hoping they are not far off.
A big thanks to TFW2005 member jon trooper for sharing this news with us. He spotted the pair in a Morrisons in Warrington – be sure to share word of what you are finding in our Transformers Sightings forum!
We have a bit of an announcement from Paley Center for Media:
“To celebrate the opening of one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, Transformers: The Last Knight, The Paley Center for Media will host Transformers Through the Years: A Super-Saturday Family Screening Celebration on Saturday, June 17.
Free Transformers toys will be available for the first 350 children in attendance! The fun-filled afternoon will include a premiere screening of a new Transformers animated episode, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, as well as specially selected Transformers animated favorites including Transformers: Prime, Transformers: Robots in Disguise and Transformers: Beast Wars.
Immersive photo activities will place families right in the Transformers universe, the event is free and open to the public and will take place at the Paley Center’s New York and Beverly Hills locations.”
Speaking to the press, Boulder Media Studio has confirmed working on two new Transformers cartoons.
While the title of one show remains unnamed, the second show is titled as Rescue Bots Academy. Along with the two new Transformers shows, the studio will also develop a new Littelest Pet Shop series and a series based on Micronauts for Hasbro Studios.
“The studio behind TV animation shows for the likes of Disney, Nickelodeon and BBC is moving up a gear. They’ve announced this morning that they’re constantly on the look-out for new talented staff and plan to open a second studio space in Dublin.
The Studio, whose current slate includes animation for ‘Transformers’, ‘Little Pet Shop’ and ‘Rescue Bots Academy’ and ‘Micronauts’ for Hasbro Studios, as well as ‘Danger Mouse’ and ‘Dorothy and the Wonders of Oz’ (Warner Brothers), is ramping up to deliver innovative animation and storytelling across multiple formats and genres.”
Rescue Bots Academy is clearly sounding as though it is the spiritual successor to the original Transformers: Rescue Bots; loved by young fans across the globe. The show’s title is also the title of Episode 71 of RB.
We are yet to find out about the other Transformers Animated Series which could very well be a replacement show for slightly older kids. Transformers: Robots In Disguise currently caters to that specific segment.
This news was in development for quite a while and TFW2005 was quick to pick up on the info which trickled on. The first official announcement came around March and it was not too long ago that we found out that several job openings were available at the studio to work on a Transformers Franchise related project.
There were many speculations based on the news but now we know.. and knowing is half the battle!
We’ve got reports of a couple of extra Transformers related oddities to share with you. First off, from the USA, we have a report of Transformers The Last Knight character pillows in Walmart. TFW2005 member Rookbartley shared these with us. Priced at $12.96 each, they come in three styles – Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Sqweeks. The Sqweeks one is particularly adorable.
Second, in the UK, TFW2005 member Underlord reports some new Robots in Disguise branded swimwear for boys. Priced at £7, these swim shorts feature Optimus Prime and Bumblebee on the front, and Steeljaw and Grimlock on the rear.
