Hasbro announces ‘Transformers: Micronauts’ toy connections, unveils ‘T5’ film logo

At the Hasbro’s Investor Day, CEO Brian Goldner and CFO Deborah Thomas provided updates on their upcoming product lines, gave a detailed account of the Transformers film franchise and shared a “temporary” logo for the fifth film.

Thanks to TFW2005 fans can see Transformers 5 logo, which is considered a placeholder. Comicbook.com noted that the “Transformers: Age of Extinction placeholder logo ended up being quite similar to the official version, so the same might be so for Transformers 5.”

Hasbro also announced Transformers: Micronauts – integrating the Micronauts into the Transformers universe. Details were not released at this time.

“Micronauts was a toyline created in the 1970s by the Japanese company Mego (now owned by Hasbro) that consisted of 3.75-inch-tall action figures. The backstory on them was that the Micronauts came from a small world and when they arrived on Earth they disguised themselves as toys. The toyline sparked interest from Marvel’s Bill Mantlo, who along with Michael Golden, created them a comic book series that was first published in 1979.” (Comicbook.com)

In an interview with IGN, Akiva Goldsman said that the direction of the next Transformers movies will be more episodic and self-contained while still following a main storyline.

“Our hope is that they are all interconnected and of course standalone, right?” he said. “I think architecturally, the best — I think I believe this — the best serialized storytelling has integrity from start to finish of the episode, whether it be TV or a movie or comic book or novel series or short story series. You want to be able to satisfy both appetites — which I think is very different from procedural or episodic. You want to feed the instinct for the short-term gratification and the longterm gratification. So we’re trying to do both.”

The new Transformers film is presumed to be released in 2017, so expect some concrete news soon.
