On Saturday at Botcon 2015, I had the chance to speak with Jerry Jivoin, John Warden, and Ben Montano from Hasbro. In the interview, I ask about some elements of the current design process in Generations and Robots in Disguise, planning for new reveals, and more! Click through now and check out the embedded video. As always, our thanks to the guys from Hasbro for taking time out to talk with the fans!
The BotCon website has posted a set of images teasing the Cybertron's Most Wanted figure set. Shown are five pair of identical robot hands holding placards, presumably part of a set of cropped mug shots. Besides the figures' titles - "The Thief," "The Muscle," "The Loose Cannon," "The Boss," and "The Bounty Hunter" - the placards contain several numbers that may or may not provide some insight as to the figures or characters being used in the set. To accompany this, Fun Pub has posted a video to YouTube revealing the identity of "The Thief." Keep reading to see for yourself!
Shout! Factory has posted Day 3 of their BotCon 2014 stream to YouTube, featuring once again a selection of Transformers cartoons interspersed with highlights from today's panels, including the IDW comics panel. Keep reading to see the video!

During our visit to the Transformers portion of the Hasbro showroom at the company's Toy Fair 2012 Media Event, we were provided a demonstration of how the gimmick of the Transformers Prime Weaponizers figures will operate. Unfortunately, the Optimus Prime was very much in showcase-only mode, so we could not get a demonstration of that figure, so the Bumblebee will have to do until next time. These leader-class-sized figures will have similar weapons functions in the robot and vehicle modes. Enjoy the video in the full article
