Toy Industry News

Hasbro have announced increased net revenues for the full-year of 2015 of 4% to $4.45 billion. Part of the growth was due to the success of the Star Wars property along with the Marvel and Jurassic World products with both over-performing when compared to their expected revenues.

Transformers revenues dropped by 1/3 which is blamed on an unfair comparison with 2014 as that was a movie tie-in year but still performed far better than was expected in a post movie year. Typcially Hasbro Inc see a 50% drop in revenue in the year directly after a movie release.

At the end of the call it was confirmed that further information regarding the upcoming entertainment releases for the Transformers brand shall be given out this Friday including details of the writers room.

The Star Wars movie tie-in products swapped US to international sales figures from around 54%-46% split in favour of US and Canada (pre -The Force Awakens product) to 46%-54% afterwards.

During the call, which is currently ongoing, Hasbro announced that they will be releasing several new internal brand (i.e not licensed) over the next couple of years.

Transmission Initiated
Transmission ID: 000021
TFNation_2016
Operation: Target 2016

We are honoured to announce that Simon Furman, one of the most significant contributors to Transformers and its rich mythos, will be joining us for our inaugural convention! 

It really does feel right for somebody who has worked so hard from the Cybertronian's earliest days be here with us to celebrate the bold new era of TFNation. 

We would keep you here all day if we were to list Simon's complete Transformers credits. Much of his work comprises the bedrock of the comics, animation and films we all enjoy today. Simon's writing has stood the test of time and his work is still held in high regard today. He has worked for the successive publishers Marvel, Dreamwave and IDW.

Simon has also lent his comic talents to many other titles including Scream, Thundercats, Alpha Flight, Doctor Who, as well as co-creating Dragon's Claws and of course a certain Freelance Peacekeeping Agent who Marvel keep teasing may return...

In addition to his writing, Simon also served as an editor for Marvel UK and Titan Books.

Away from comics, Simon has been involved in the world of animation from Beast Wars, X-Men: Evolution, Dan Dare to most recently serving as both Head Writer and Script Editor for CITV's The Matt Hatter Chronicles.

Over the course of the weekend, you will have the opportunity to hear more about this storied career from the man himself and in much greater detail.

To keep up with Simon's current work, he maintains a blog over at:
https://simonfurman.wordpress.com


Simon will be signing autographs and selling comics and script packs from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016. We look forward to seeing you there!

Transformers Convention News

The TFNation team have issued a new release regarding booking a hotel for their inaugral show which has been in hide demand since registration opened on the 15th Jan

Transmission Initiated
Transmission ID: 000019
TFNation_2016
Operation: Hotel Update #2

As announced last week, our allocation of rooms at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel have almost sold out. With many more Transformers fans still looking to purchase tickets, here are some hints and tips to help you to find accommodation:

1. RESERVING A TFNATION ROOM AT THE HILTON

At the time of writing, we still have the following room types available on the core convention days;

Friday – Single, Queen Executive and Family.
Saturday – Single
Sunday – Twin Deluxe, Twin Executive, Queen Executive and Family.

We also have rooms left on the days surrounding the convention (Wednesday, Thursday, Monday and Tuesday) which might be particularly helpful for international attendees.

2. FIND A ROOMMATE

We have opened a
thread on our Facebook page for people looking for roommates. If there is a spare bed in your room, please consider assisting a fellow fan.

3. RESERVING A PUBLIC ROOM AT THE HILTON

Like most hotels, the Hilton keeps a certain amount of rooms for public sale. This means you can still get a room at the Hilton, but the price and terms of sale will be different to the special deal negotiated by TFNation.

PLEASE NOTE - The Hilton cannot assign convention rates to public reservations.

There are two main ways to reserve a publically available room:

3.A. HILTON WINTER SALE

Presently the Hilton is holding a WINTER SALE on its
website

These rooms represent a good saving over standard hotel prices, though you may have to pay upfront. Unlike TFNation rooms, breakfast is typically not included. Additional options are available for Hilton Honors members – it is members – full details can be found here http://hhonors3.hilton.com/en/index.html for more information

3.B. RESERVING HILTON ROOMS THROUGH THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Hilton rooms are available through many public websites. Please read the terms and conditions for booking as some may require upfront payment, and/or may not include breakfast. Examples of booking sites include;

www.Hotels.com
www.Trivago.com
www.Laterooms.com

If you have booked different nights through different sources, then please let the hotel know either before the event, or at check in, as they may be able to combine your bookings into a single stay to save you having to change rooms. This only applies where all your rooms are of the same type (eg: single)

4. OTHER HOTELS NEAR TO THE HILTON

There are many alternative hotels near to the Hilton. We have listed some below, and have separated them into ‘walking distance’ and ‘driving distance’;

Firstly, within walking distance you have -

Budget Price Hotels:
Etap Hotel Birmingham Airport
IBIS Styles Birmingham Airport
The Holiday Inn Express, NEC
The Premier Inn Birmingham NEC
Novotel Birmingham airport

Luxury Price Hotels:
Genting Hotel (Resorts World)
Crown Plaza Birmingham NEC
Arden Birmingham NEC

Secondly, if you have a car, these options may work out well for you -

Travelodge Birmingham International
Holiday Inn: International Airport

5. OTHER HOTELS – FURTHER AFIELD

Closer to the event, we will post a list of hotels which are nearer to Birmingham City Centre.

We hope this update has been useful. Remember, the best part of the convention will be the parts where you are awake with friends – so please don’t get stressed if you cannot stay at the Hilton itself, as we are sure you will still have a fabulous time.

Toy Industry News

For years Hasbro Inc produced most of its toys and games out in China then a few years ago they shifted to factories in Vietnam, partly due to increase labour costs in China, and now it looks like they are moving again but this time to India.  According to an article published on The Wall Street Journal on January 6th Hasbro are looking at India as a solution to Vietnam becoming saturated with factories.

“John Leung, chairman of GFT Group Ltd., a manufacturer of Transformers, “Star Wars” and other toys for Hasbro that is based in China’s Guangdong province, said he plans to start producing soon from a rented factory in Chennai.

Eight years ago, GFT shifted much of its production from China to Vietnam, where today the company’s workers earn around $215 a month, less than Chinese counterparts’ salaries. But Vietnam is quickly becoming saturated with factories, Mr. Leung said.

“In the next eight to 10 years, Vietnam will be finished,” he said. He said Hasbro, based in Pawtucket, R.I., had urged him to set up shop in India.”

Transformers Toy News

Last Maximal has posted two images over on the Allspark which show that the recolour of Transformers Classics Optimus Prime that has recently popped up in some auctions is an upcoming release from Platinum Series two pack with a redeco of Voyager Classics Megatron!

The toys within the pack are redecos of the original Transformers Classics Voyager molds for the same characters. Optimus Prime retains his traditional red and blue deco, but uses clear blue panels on the arms and has a Autobot symbol stamped on his wind vane. The Megatron has a silver body, with red forearms and red-and-black legs, in robot form whilst the gun mode is mainly red to pass the requirements to make toy guns look like toys and not real guns.

The set is called “One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall” and much like the Platinum series Planet of Junk Clash set, is another special edition being made to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Transformers: the Movie.

According to Last Maximal, this set is out in specialty stores in the Philippines.
