Our Summer Special of updates continues here at Transformers At The Moon, even though we are now well into the Autumn / Fall, with the latest addition of Character Models from our collection. This evening's updates continues our recent theme of commemorating the DVD release of Beast Wars II by publishing the character models from the show and, as such, we are proud to bring you the following new galleries.
Beast Wars II Backgrounds - This gallery contains 62 scans of backgrounds from the show. Some of the sheets you will notice have been coloured, by hand, this was not done by ourselves.
BB - We have published 5 scans of character models for BB, one of which is an early concept art.
Big Horn - We have published 19 sheets of character models of the Cybertron known as Big Horn.
Bigmoss - You can now find an image gallery containing the 5 character models for the Insectron Bigmoss.
Dirge - You can find 7 character models of the Destron Dirge from the Beast Wars II show.
Dirge-gun- During the Beast Wars II series Dirge gets upgraded into Dirge-gun and so you can also find 5 character models of that character
Diver was one of the original members of Leo Convoy's Cybertron's and now 11 character models of the little green frog are available for you to view.
Drillnuts - Drillnuts is another member of the Insectrons and was a toy that we purchased whilst at Auto Assembly 2011, so we actually owned his character model before we owned the toy.
I have added three new image galleries containing scans of September 2011 issue of TV Boy, the October 2011 issue of TV Boy and an old back issue of Figure King (issue 111) to the Media section of the website.
All of the scans are mirrors of thread that were originally posted on ModXToys.com
Toy Industry magazine Toy News's Samantha Loveday recently sat down with Hasbro Europe's Country Manager for UK &?Irelan, Foye Pascoe to discuss the recent success of the company. Below are some quotes that contained Transformers related anwsers, but you can read the full article here.
How has the UK market performed so far this year? Are we in better shape than this time last year?
Hasbro UK has experienced a 14 per cent growth (UK NPD EPOS YTD June 2011). This is due to the strong performance of the recent Transformers movie, and a number of our key brands including Play-Doh, Furreal Friends and Nerf and our key licensed properties within the boy’s category.
What lines have performed well for you so far this year?
We are proud that we have experienced good performance across the full range of our toys and games.
Not only are some key films helping deliver the Transformers and Marvel toy lines, but we are also seeing growth of our classic brands such as Play-Doh, Furreal Friends, Nerf and Supersoaker.
Are there any sectors in particular which have stood out? Boys
must have been boosted by the new Transformers lines, for example?
The boys segment has undoubtedly been boosted by a number of key films; Transformers Dark of the Moon has had a positive impact on the Transformers retail presence. Our alliance with Marvel has delivered strong product lines both for Captain America and Thor this year. Star Wars has had a good year and was the number one property in action figures UK (NPD EPOS YTD June 2011).
Finally, any hot tips from your 2012 product line to watch out for?
2012 will be another great year for action films for which we have a range of boys’ toys and games.
Star Wars re-mastered Episode One will hit cinemas in February. Battleship will preview in May, followed by the much-publicised Avengers film from Marvel later in the month.
The Amazing Spider-man will launch in July. Transformers will continue to connect with boys through Transformers Prime programming on Cartoon Network.
Within our girl’s portfolio, My Little Pony programming is currently on air on Boomerang and connecting with a whole new generation of girls.
