With the upcoming TOYFAIR! event in Manhattan this weekend, Hasbro has released some information to Comingsoon.net of what we should expect from them this year.

We can expect to see upcoming products from: The Incredible Hulk, Indiana Jones, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and of course Transformers.

Here is what they had to say about Transformers:

"In 2008, Hasbro will build on the buzz generated by last year’s blockbuster TRANSFORMERS movie by offering a variety of new products in both the TRANSFORMERS Movie and TRANSORMERS Universe segments. In addition, the TRANSFORMERS brand returns to its origin as an animated series with the debut of the new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED series on Cartoon Network. Co-produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the series is set in Detroit in the near future and airs on Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m. (ET/PT). The new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED toy line features an array of characters from the series that will appeal to both young and long-time fans alike. Highlights of the line include Animated styled action figures, ROLL OUT COMMAND OPTIMUS PRIME (Approximate retail price: $49.99; Ages: 5 & up; Available: Fall) along with the SHIFT TECH OPTIMUS PRIME handheld game. (Approximate retail price: $19.99; Ages: 6& up; Available: June 2008)"

Stay tuned for Unicron.com's complete coverage of the event!

In other news:
Micheal Bay has said to Rotten Tomatoes that during the WGA strike he has been writing Transformers 2. He goes on to say "We've got our characters all designed. I always write all my scripts, my movies anyway so at least I've got something to give the writers. It's like a template. We have a really good outline so I worked on that.". When asked why he had this to say "We had to because I want to make my date. I'm not going to let the strike take me down." 

IESB.net has an exclusive video where they spoke to Mr.Bay and he gave some little hints of what we can expect to see. He says that its not going to include Dinobots. However, dont get upset as of yet because remember he did say he was going to leak false information to keep us fans (forgive the pun here) at bay.

And on Mr.Bay's website you can see an "AWESOME"  commercial that he did for Verizon Fios that features Transformer clips and Bumble Bee. Check it out here

Oh man, Human Error, I wish I could go to Toyfair. Don't YOU wish YOU could go to Toyfair? It'd be so cool if WE could go to Toyfair. Maybe one day WE'll be able to go, but seeing as it's invitation only, I guess WE'll have to settle for the dream of Toyfair.

I am not geting anything except the cheap toys for Animated. Micheal Bay says there are going to be more 'ROBOTS IN DISGUISE' Get it!
