HasCon 2017 Vs. The TFormers Wishlist: Four Things We Want(ed) To See, Revisited
RAC - Wednesday, September 13, 2017


HasCon has been and gone for the year, and by most on-hand accounts it sounds as though the show was successful at what it was trying to do. But as fans, we must ask the question core to the condition of being a fan: what about US? It seems as though we got a lot of interesting answers and even some new questions... but of course, not all the answers. Which is to be expected with NYCC around the corner, we guess - but there's so much we don't yet know about the state of Transformers for 2018. Click through as we revisit our hopes for HasCon 2017!


4. Machinima's Titans Return Animated Series


Call this one a tossup. We didn't really learn anything we hadn't been told in press releases beforehand, and the promo shown at the show was light on new footage. For something premiering in November, that's maybe a little worrying? The footage we did see looked to be on par with Combiner Wars, but little better if at all. They have moved to longer episodes though, relearning the lesson Genndy Tartakovsky learned with his Star Wars: The Clone Wars series nearly 15 years ago. We'll find out in November how much it helps, and if the writing can help shore up the awkward animation this time through.


X3. Transformers: Cyberverse


Not a peep. Which, if Cyberverse isn't appearing until sometime next year, makes sense. But again that brings us back to the question: is the leaked package art above part of Cyberverse? Since we last talked about it, we were reminded that the Big Power of the Primes Leak also mentioned a new budget-minded line titled "Transformers Authentics." Whether that ties into Cyberverse or not, we can't possibly say; but it seems likely that these G1-styled figures will fall under the Authentics label.


2. Power of the Primes


It's not so much that we learned a lot here as that much of what we'd guessed or had leaked was confirmed. And that's pretty good too! RAC has broken down what we currently know by size class (with a few guesses thrown in), but the short version: Combiners are back with better hands and feet, and it looks like there's going to be as many as three different widgets compatible with Titans Return neck sockets. Throw in Miyake Joints and you could be verging on the perfect toyline. But we're dying to know: what is Starscream's Combiner name?


X1. The New Transformers Collector's Club


Yeah, no dice here. So far, the only indications we have that one is coming were Hasbro starting an as-yet unused mailing list for the new Transformers Fan Club last year, and the filenames on Arcee's photo above. On top of which, it was apparently said at HasCon that Arcee will be headed to retail somewhere after her HasCon "First Sale" appearance. Is the new "Collector's Club" just a rebranding of the Platinum Edition subline? Who knows?

So many questions! So few answers! Hopefully New York Comic-Con will bring us some more information on many of these subjects. Until then, we'll just have to wait and watch, and see how the day's Transformers News modifies what we know, what we guess, and what we're hoping for.

More Generations News
Hot on the heels of the previous round of leaks, we've got one more set for you! First up is a look at the instructions lineart for Abominus, as well as for the as-yet unnamed combined modes of Voyagers Starscream and Elita-1. Plus we've got trading card art for many of the Wave 1 releases. Keep reading to see!
Another leak has come out from the usual Weibo source, and it's a pretty substantial one. It's primarily made of art assets for Power of the Primes packaging and instructions, so - while small - they represent the best looks we've yet gotten at largely unseen figures such as Voyager Elita-1, Deluxe Moonracer, and more. We also get illustrations of Jazz, Moonracer, and Rippersnapper as arms, and some in-package photos to top it all off. Keep reading for a full catalog of what's here!
War for the Core! Deep within Cybertron, the ultimate weapon to kill all Transformers is about to be activated! Meanwhile, Elita One plans to stop the weapon -- by killing every human on Cybertron! Either way, looks like some species on Cybertron is going down unless Optimus Prime and Scarlett can save the day... Expected in shops October 25, 2017. Read the preview pages in the gallery below!
From our same old Weibo leak source, we've got some new pieces of Power of The Primes art and package assets leaked. We have more views of Elita-1, showing the collector card front and back and giving a good look at (an interpretation of) her robot mode. Also seen is a partial image of Inferno's robot mode, plus an instruction image of Volcanicus showing the ability to attach surplus combiner hands to the combiner feet to extend the heel support. Keep reading to see all of the images!
Thanks to Newsarama, we have the first preview up from next Wednesday's offering of Transformers comics, beginning with issue 10 of Lost Light kicking off the Mutineers Trilogy, which we anticipate to be three issues about a mutiny! HOMECOMING! FIRST AID, the Autobots' Chief Medical Officer, returns to the Lost Light to find that everything has changed: the ship is now under the command of the treacherous GETAWAY, half of his closest friends are missing, and -- most shocking of all -- the crew is actually making progress... Keep reading to see the preview pages!
