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.

As of writing, the brief voting period in the 2018 Transformers fan vote event is nearly over with. While we await the results of the choice of one of three Deluxe VS sets to be released next year (from which Impactor vs Mirage appeared to be taking a lead at one point), Hasbro has released via Facebook a post clearing up some small details, such as the incorrect identification of Impactor as a Decepticon in the sample art. For the most part it doesn't offer much, but one of the answers actually does give us something to work from. Keep reading to find out what!
Nick Roche, writer and artist of Last Stand of the Wreckers and Sins of the Wreckers, has announced that he will be finishing his Wreckers story in a one-shot to be titled Requiem of the Wreckers! Reuniting with colorist Josh Burcham, Roche has also announced that fellow Transformers artists Guido Guidi and Geoff Senior will also be contributing to the book! Keep reading to see the teaser image and announcement.
The official Transformers pages on Facebook and Instragam have posted a video announcing the new Fan Vote for 2018! Using the hashtags in this article's title on either of those sites and those sites only, you can vote for one of three two-packs to come in 2019's first chapter in the War For Cybertron trilogy: Spinister vs. Wheeljack, Impactor vs. Mirage, or Needlenose vs. Tracks! Keep reading to see the video.
Hasbro's people said during Toy Fair they have exclusives planned for Generations for this year, though they didn't reveal any specifics. Blast Off and Repugnus had both been discovered via leaked materials and distributor information, but it looks like at least one more figure may be joining their Special Edition ranks this year. Amazon.ca has a listing page for Deluxe Counterpunch, and while the currently attached price and some of the product info are a bit wacky, the associated product code makes sense compared to Repugnus and Blast Off. So what could we be looking at? Keep reading for another round of speculation!
We're capping this year's Toy Fair 2018 with the official images Power of the Primes Transformers action figures shown at this years show.
