Now Marvel and Hasbro follow suit with Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, a line of dolls that highlights the publisher’s diverse roster of young adult heroes,…
You know Shopkins, those tiny collectible plastic replicas of consumer goods children have been nuts for over the past few years? What if they could transform into robots? Behold, Hasbro’s newest Transformers creations, BotBots. Oh boy.
Giant transforming robots deserve giant trading cards, and they get them in the new Transformers Trading Card Game. Hasbro tapped Wizards of the Coast to give the Autobots and Decepticons a new way to battle, and it’s slightly more than meets the eye.
Goodbye, Boardwalk; hello, Rainbow Road. Hasbro’s latest twist on Monopoly is a Mario Kart theme. And like last year’s Monopoly Gamer, it’s no simple reskin of the classic game.
Massdrop and Hasbro have teamed up to create the perfect board game/keyboard crossover. Community designer Cassidy Williams captured the essence of Scrabble perfectly in this set. The drop runs all month, with kits starting at $47 for just the letters and numbers. Unless they fall on a red space. Then it’s $141.
As catchy as its opening theme was, music from the original Transformers cartoon has never had an official release. Hasbro and Legacy Recordings fix that grave oversight on March 9 with the release of Hasbro Studios Presents ‘80s TV Classics: Music from The Transformers. On vinyl, no less.
A movie so big it’s split into two parts is going to have at least two waves of Marvel Legends action figures. Here’s a look at the 15 figures from comics and movies making up series one and two of Hasbro’s Avengers: Infinity War line, including a trio of exclusive reveals (hint: look up).
While I am not the biggest fan of the live-action Transformers movies, I do appreciate the “realistic” robot and vehicle designs the series has spawned. Revealed today at Toy Fair 2018, the Studio Series celebrates those designs with intricate figures packaged with movie backdrops. I might need them. Update: And…
In season eight of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, debuting March 24 on Discovery Family, Twilight Sparkle and friends leave the pony empire of Equestria to found a school teaching friendship to the friendless hordes beyond. Is there a toy of this school? Of course there’s a toy of this school.
“Trukk not Munkey!” was the cry of fans as they rallied against Beast Wars when it debuted in 1996. But over its three seasons of clever writing, original series easter eggs, excellent voice acting and one heroic sacrifice it became one of the most beloved animated series in Transformers history. It’s a pity its video…
DropMix is fantastic. With the holiday season coming to a close, it’s a darn shame more folks aren’t talking about Harmonix and Hasbro’s new musical card game.
In the first episode of Hasbro’s My Little Pony: Equestria Girls animated series, a pony who transformed into a human after passing through a dimensional portal waits in line for a new video game. What happens next challenges the notion that preordering video games is bad.
The partnership between Hasbro and Machinima that gave us last year’s Transformers: Combiner Wars series bears new fruit next week, when Titans Returns brings some of the largest disguised robots in the toy box out to play.
Announced at Hascon over the weekend and debuting later this month in the Transformers: Earth Wars mobile game, Volacanicus is what happens when the Autobots’ robot dinosaurs get their act together.
Music mashup creators work long and hard stripping down popular songs into their component elements and then weaving them together into compelling new tracks. Dropmix, the new mobile-connect game from Hasbro and Harmonix, makes this as easy as shuffling cards.

Back in 2015, Hasbro asked Transformers fans to choose between Autobot Omega Supreme and Decepticons Scorponok and Trypticon as the next massive titan-class toy. City-sized T-rex Trypticon won, and now he’s on my desk, with a friend ready to help open him up.
Last year’s Machinima-produced Transformers: Combiner Wars series was neat, but its voice cast, largely comprised of prominent YouTubers, was hit-or-miss. For the second leg of the trilogy, they’re bringing in the big guns, including the original voices of Optimus Prime and Hot Rod. Also, Tay Zonday.
Hasbro’s been pumping out branded versions of classic board game Monopoly for ages. With token-specific abilities, power-up dice and boss fights, Mario-themed Monopoly Gamer is something different.
Fans of Netflix’s comic book shows can realize the dream of having a tiny plastic Krysten Ritter, Jon Bernthal or Charlie Cox on their desk this fall, when Hasbro releases its Marvel Knights series of six-inch Legends figures. And who doesn’t want to build a Man-Thing?
