RISE OF THE BEASTS FILM PREMIERE

@HASBRO HOSTED “TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE IN BROOKLYN” FAN EVENT AHEAD OF THE TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS FILM PREMIERE

Free Experiential Fan Event Celebrated the Transformers Brand Held on June 3 in Brooklyn, NY

 

  On June 3, 2023, Hasbro and Amazon collaborated on a special “Transformers: Battle in Brooklyn” free fan event in Brooklyn, NY that celebrated the highly anticipated film Transformers: Rise of the Beasts – releasing globally by Paramount Pictures exclusively in theatres on June 9.

Thousands of fans lined up to take part in the event’s fun-filled Transformers-themed activities, interactive, shoppable Amazon product displays, and more. Fans took memorable photos and videos in front of the Graffiti-Style Mural from Japanese street artist Dragon76 – showcasing the Transformers brand in a vital, passionate ‘90s art style.

Transformers Product Showcase was on display exhibiting the hottest new toys like the Bumblebee and Optimus Primal 2-in-1 Converting Masks and the Beast Battle Masters Cheetor figure, as well as collectibles and more from the latest Transformers consumer product lineup. Attendees also browsed a new collection of Amazon exclusive products inspired by the graffiti mural, including t-shirts, tanks, and hoodies for kids and adults from Merch on Demand, Amazon’s print-on-demand service that allows customers to shop millions of products from popular brands and independent designers.

Event-goers grabbed bites to eat from local, on-site food trucks, Glazed & Confused and Takumi Tacos, who offered free food from special Transformers-themed menus.

Daniel Pickett

AFi founder and Editor-In-Chief Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on Bloomberg News, MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
