Toy News: An Invitation to the BotBots Challenge

Toy News: An Invitation to the BotBots Challenge

While opening my mail tonight a mysterious envelope showed up. After opening it up I discovered an intriguing card: an invite to the "BotBots Challenge"! Included in this invitation was the BotBot "Snippy Snappy" who transforms into a pair of scissors (for a "ribbon cutting" you see).

This "virtual grand opening celebration" is still a bit of a mystery. No specific date, URL or location was provided but no doubt this is tied to the launch of the BotBots toy line. The hashtag #BotBotsChallenge shows no results on Twitter just yet so time will tell!

Movie News: New "Bumblebee" movie poster debuts

Paramount Pictures has released a new poster for the upcoming "Bumblebee" live action movie. The poster has a very retro quality to it, showing Bumblebee, Charlie and Agent Burns in the sky over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Synopsis
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.
