It's a big day for Transformers as new toys from Paramount Pictures' Bumblebee Movie just hit pre-order (see them all here) and a whole bunch of new items from Cartoon Network's Transformers: Cyberverse just hit the streets. But that's not all - as some other items got into the mix including new plush keychains and an anticipated addition to the preschool-geared Rescue Bots line. My friends at Entertainment Earth just put them up for pre-order, so lets take a look...

We're just a few months out from the Christmas release of Paramount Pictures' new Bumbleebee film, and now Hasbro is gearing up to start rolling out the companion toys. A sizable assortment of Transformers just went up for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth and among the new items are the following from the new Bumblebee line.  While the traditional transforming action figures are the core of the collection, Hasbro continues to emphasize role play, large-scale feature figures and their Vision AR line that first surfaced as an Iron Man helmet during the product launch for Avengers: Infinity War. Check out the new toys below, and note the character names alongside their pre-production code names (used to prevent potential spoilers during the pre-announcement stages).

Kid CEO? Toys 'R' Us China has a New Army...

Written by

While Toys "R" Us is currently dead here in the States, Geoffrey lives on in other parts of the world, including China. What's of concern right now is that a growing battle between a couple of the very companies responsible for the swift collapse of TRU here in the States (led by Solus Alternative Asset Management, because "Soulless" was too obvious a name) may put the entire Asian operation at risk due to a fight over the use of the Toys "R" Us name. In the meantime, it's business as usual in the Far East, and the folks at Toys "R" Us China just wrapped their hunt for a "small CEO." Actually, about 150 of them - children dubbed as Honorary "Chief Experience Officers."

UGLYDOLLS Grabs Some Funny Cast...

Written by

The cast for STXfilm UGLYDOLLS movie is shaping up. Today comes word that comedians Gabriel Iglesias and Wanda Sykes have joined the voice cast, taking roles alongside Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas and Pitbull, all of whom were previously announced. 

"Having two comedy powerhouses like Gabriel Iglesias and Wanda Sykes join the cast of UglyDolls adds yet another creative layer to this heartwarming film," said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms. "Wanda's ability to be hilarious and sarcastic while always staying completely charming and Gabriel's undeniable likability and relatable brand of comedy round out this endearing story, and help create a world that pops for both children and adult audiences alike."

The "action dolls" category just got a surprise addition - MARVEL RISING. Hasbro announced a new collaboration with Disney and Marvel for a nationwide rollout at Target stores for the new collection of 11" dolls and companion role play items. The animated Marvel Rising: Initiation shorts are currently available on Disney XD and Marvel HQ on Youtube, and the feature-length film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will premiere on Disney Channel and Disney XD on September 30th (see the new trailer here). The new toys feature Marvel’s next generation of Super Heroes including Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, American Chavez, Ghost-Spider, and more. These look great, and if you've seen Hasbro's recent line of Descendants dolls, these look very much in line with that... and there's also some fantastic apparel, Halloween costumes and walkie talkies in the mix. Check 'em out...

See the New Trailer for MARVEL RISING: Secret Warriors...

Written by

As audiences eagerly await next year's release of Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel, she's coming to animated form in MARVEL RISING: Secret Warriors, which makes it's debut on Sunday, September 30th at 10PM ET/PT simultaneously on Disney Channel and Disney XD.  She's a supporting player here, as Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors follows super-powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name. Today comes the full trailer, which made its debut on Marvel HQ and can be seen below!
