Ghostbusters/ Transformers Crossover Toy Revealed, Ectotron! – Toy Fair 2019

We have been posting up a storm this week about all of the amazing reveals ahead of NY Toy Fair 2019, but I think Hasbro just won the event. In an unbelievable crossover of epic proportions, bigger than the Tunguska explosion of 1908, Hasbro has revealed a mash-up toy combining Transformers with… Ghostbusters!

Revealed by io9 earlier this morning, Named “Ectotron”, this Transformer comes equipped with his own proton pack and paranormal activity-detecting goggles. He also has a makeshift jumpsuit color scheme once transformed.

According to the original article, Ectotron transforms from a seven-inch long replica of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 vehicle to a robot in about 22 steps.

As if getting a new movie wasn’t enough, now we get a transformer too!

A non-transforming Slimer figure is also included, although the scale of this is not known at this time.

Ectotron will also get his own official origin story from IDW Publishing. A brand new 5-part comic series from creative team Erik Burnham & Dan Schoening, the team responsible for the great GB comics out now from IDW, will begin in June 2019.

I was not expecting to make an announcement like this on my site today, but wow! I’m not a big Transformers fan, but this is an instant purchase for me.

This is not the first crossover toy for Ghostbusters, as Playmates previously did a mash-up combining the busters with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This toy will be available in early June for $40 piece and will be exclusively available in-store at GameStop, although the original article also says you can get it online. Pre-orders will start tomorrow at GameStop’s siteHasbroPulse.com, and EB Games Canada.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of both the TRANSFORMERS brand & the original Ghostbusters film.

There have been a lot of reveals leading up to NY Toy Fair. Some of the highlights so far have included Hasbro teasing us with a first glimpse of their new Overwatch figuresDiamond Select purchasing Gentle GiantMcFarlane Toys picking up the DC Comics LicenseHasbro’s “Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures” figures,  Mezco’s new One:12 Captain Marvel figureMego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.

Stay tuned this weekend as our exclusive NY Toy Fair 2019 coverage begins on Saturday!

Paramount Continues Partnership With Hasbro To Make More Transformers Movies

Good news, Transformers fans! More movies are on the way, and if they are all half as good as Bumblebee, then things could be looking up for the franchise.

During the Hasbro 4th Quarter Earnings Conference call, CEO of Hasbro Brian Goldner spoke about the current state of the Transformers brand. Goldner went on to speak specifically about the future plans for the movies, and it turns out they do have some:

“In Transformers, in the fourth quarter was up both in the US and internationally, so up overall. We really successfully reengaged fans and families with Bumblebee. It’s done over $450 million globally.

The early indications as we enter the New Year are for a strong ESP and home entertainment window, and we believe that the enterprise for Bumblebee, including the film, is profitable for Hasbro go forward.

Obviously we’re in the early days. Haven’t hit the home entertainment window yet. We haven’t even opened in Japan yet, and the movie is still in theaters.

We knew In addition to the feature film, which is an important element and we are working on new films ideas with Paramount in partnership with Jim Giannopoulos and that team, and they’re fantastic, we also have television on Cartoon Network, Netflix offering, and preschool offering. So across the board, it’s a brand that really embodies our brand blueprint strategy, and we continue to believe very strongly in the power of the franchise.”

Hasbro will webcast its Annual Investor Update at New York Toy Fair 2019 on Friday, February 15, 2019 at 8:00 AM EST at this link here. The meeting will be hosted by Mr. Goldner, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Deborah Thomas, Chief Financial Officer, and John Frascotti, President and Chief Operating Officer. Replays of the call and the Investor Day will be available at the same location approximately 2 hours following completion of each event.

There was no mention of a direct sequel to Bumblebee, which has been having a very successful box-office run, but it would not be surprising to see that series continue on. Perhaps we will get more Cyberton-based movie as time goes on. What kind of Transformers movie do you want to see them make next?

Hasbro Teases Us With Sneak Peek Of “Overwatch” Figures – Starting With Tracer

I have been waiting for months, trying not to go insane, since the announcement by Hasbro that they were making figures from “Overwatch”. Now, with NY Toy Fair 2019 looming over us, we finally have something to see – a shadowy sneak peek of their new line of OW figures, starting with Tracer!

The image was posted by the Hasbro Pulse instagram, who wrote, “Cheers love, the cavalry’s (almost) here! #OverwatchUltimatesSeries reveals Saturday 2/16 at #HasbroToyFair”

While we don’t officially know much about the figures, we do know that they will be within the six-inch scale, like their Marvel Legends figures. My hope is that the larger characters like Winston and D.VA will be build-a-figures, instead of much more expensive (and harder to find) separately packed toys.

Expect much more during NY Toy Fair, including an up-close look at their booth when we visit them over the weekend.

There have been a lot of reveals leading up to NY Toy Fair. Some of the highlights so far have included Diamond Select purchasing Gentle GiantHasbro’s “Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures” figuresMcFarlane Toys picking up the Wizarding World of Harry Potter license, Mezco’s new One:12 Captain Marvel figureMego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.

First Look At New “Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures” Figures From Hasbro – Toy Fair 2019

NY Toy Fair 2019 is a little over a week away, and I am growing more impatient every day that I have to write posts like this. Today, Hasbro gave us their first look at their new offerings for Star Wars toys – and this one is quite interesting.

The new toys are not just an action figure for kids to play with, but an entry point to the entire series. Each pack contains one 3.75-inch scale Star Wars figure, a mini comic, and a code that can be activated with a smart device to unlock more stories online.

Here is what StarWars.com , who broke the exclusive news earlier today, had to say about the new product:

A lonely scavenger in search of belonging. A vulnerable and vengeful child in a mask.

The next wave in Hasbro’s Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures action figure line will introduce the next generation to even more of the saga’s heroes and villains, including Rey and Kylo Ren. Joining the stars of the sequel trilogy will be figures of: Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Jedi Master who trained the future Darth Vader; Darth Maul, the Sith apprentice who murdered Qui-Gon Jinn; General Grievous, the brilliant Separatist cyborg strategist from the time of the Clone Wars; and the fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett.

The first wave includes Rey, Kylo Ren, Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous, Darth Maul, and Boba Fett, meaning this line will span the gamut of all film eras.

The new sets will be available later this Spring.

Hasbro has not been the only company dropping reveals ahead of Toy Fair, as Mezco has shown off a new Captain Marvel figure, Mego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.
