Hasbro Issues Press Release Regarding Toy Fair 2009
GI JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA Movie Line
In 1964, the introduction of Hasbro’s G.I. JOE line created the “action figure” category. Since then, the G.I. JOE property has evolved, delivering a unique brand of action for each new generation. This summer, fans of all ages will see the G.I. JOE franchise taken to the next level with the major motion picture release of G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA, on August 7, from Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment, in association with Hasbro. The film focuses on an elite G.I. JOE team that uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer DESTRO and growing threat of the mysterious COBRA organization.
Hasbro’s 2009 product line allows fans of all ages to capture the excitement of the movie and recreate it in their own homes. The line features dozens of action figures, vehicles based on the film and the SNAKE EYES ROLE PLAY SET, which gives fans the gear needed to “become” the legendary Ninja character.
TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Movie line
This summer, the colossal battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS continues when “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” once again invade movie theaters around the world. The new DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures live-action movie TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN debuts June 26, 2009 and continues the story from the 2007 worldwide blockbuster film that finds two warring factions of robots colliding in a major battle on planet Earth. In 2009, Hasbro continues the legacy with its new line of movie-based TRANSFORMERS toys that capture the action and excitement of the new film. Fans will love the new action figures in multiple scales and kids can pretend to be a TRANSFORMERS robot by wearing the new BUMBLEBEE MOVIE VOICE MIXER HELMET. Additionally, coming in the fall, young fans will enjoy TRANSFORMERS R.P.M.’S MINI-VEHICLES, a new line of miniature, non-converting TRANSFORMERS-themed vehicles.
STAR WARS CLONE TURBO TANK
(Approximate Retail Price: $99.99; Ages: 4 & up; Available: Fall 2009)
The next generation of STAR WARS fans are being introduced to the STAR WARS galaxy via the must-see animated series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS airing on Cartoon Network. As a follow-up to the popular AT-TE vehicle that topped Christmas lists in 2008, the CLONE TURBO TANK is an enormous field vehicle from the animated series, designed to transport up to twenty clone troopers (sold separately) into battle.

although i - along with everyone else - was sure it would happen, and understand why they are doing it... i am very disappointed in the emphasis already being placed on the movie line. seeing it in a press release just makes it more depressing.

Nobody is less-enthusiastic about the movie than I am, but let me say that I'm enthusiastic about the possibility of a GREAT Snake-Eyes figure. Please come through for me Hasbro!
Also, I do like the Duke and Hawk figures well enough, so there's some hope for the toyline, for customs if nothing else.

I'm getting really excited myself for this film and the future of this toy line and franchise. I can honestly say that I am not going to hate this film even though it's not our "Real American Hero" that we grew up with in the 80's- so I'm still baffled why some of my thread posts have mysteriously vanished from existences!???????
