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.

From the Facebooks of HK-TF members Waishing Leung, ChaRles Ng, Ting Yan Kwok, and Fido Li, we've got images of most if not all of Power of the Primes! Among the highlights are new looks at Optimus and Rodimus Prime as well as Grimlock confronting a horde of Titans Return Legends-class Gnaws. And also, Optimus Prime embraces his movie self (and the Prime Master/Titan Master/Matrix/Enigma cross-compatibility) and carries the Matrix of Faces. Keep reading to see the images, mirrored here for your convenience!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Firsthand thoughts on every Power of the Primes figure out so far! Street Fighter X Transformers may be the single greatest Transformers idea ever. Mattel rebuffs Hasbro, so I guess we're not getting a Transformers Battle Cat anytime soon. We share our thoughts on Titans Return Episode 3! Plus: new photos of Masterpiece Dinobot, MP39 Sunstreaker, Voyager Class Power of the Primes Starscream, Perfect Beast Mega Doragon, and way, way more!


An unsourced anonymous image board post has provided something a bit interesting to look at: Power of The Primes Rodimus Prime broken down to its individual units showing a new perspective of how the full Leader Class toy comes together. As shown we can see the Hot Rod robot, plus the transformed state of the trailer that forms most of the Rodimus body, along with the Rodimus arms, which detach between forms. Of note which may not have been clear before, the Matrix chamber is located within the Rodimus Prime specific body portions rather than as part of Hot Rod directly. Keep reading to see the photo.
