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
Previews World has posted the latest order sheets, giving us not only our first look at the regular comic titles heading to shops in December, but also three collected volumes that'll be coming along in January. Our regular entries include Lost Light 13 and Optimus Prime 14, joined by the highly anticipated Till All Are One Annual 2017, plus the new miniseries Transformers vs Visionaries launches! You can find full solicits and cover preview for most of these titles below.
Writer James Roberts has revealed that More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne will be making his return with Lost Light #13! It's a standalone issue, Roberts reports on Twitter, but also promised that Milne would later be returning for a longer run. Excellent news to be sure! Keep reading to see the tweets, along with a cover for issue #13!
On the RFC Reviews channel, diecast has shared a video for the Hascon "exclusive" that caught most people's attention, Titans Return Arcee. This is the latest heavy retool of Blurr featuring a bonus die-cast metal Ultra Magnus Titan Master in addition to its own Titan Master Leinad. All information so far is that this will be available again outside of the convention distribution, with the info card at the event promising major retailers. Meantime, you can watch the video embedded below to get a better look at the whole set!
A Weibo source has posted some new in-hand images of Power of the Primes Leader class Optimus Prime. And perhaps most interestingly, they stand it up next to Masterpiece MP-10 Prime... and it doesn't fare all that badly! Certainly MP-10 has an edge since it doesn't need to integrate its trailer into its body, but in terms of style and scale they compare pretty respectably. Keep reading to see the images!
Following the Hascon rebut, we have word of Transformers Volcanicus vs Predaking: Survival of the Fittest coming to the Transformers Earth Wars game on September 21st. Here's the official copy - RAWR! Volcanicus & Predaking are coming to Transformers: Earth Wars! The beasts will be unleashed on September 21st. Read on to watch the trailer with Volcanicus vs Predaking now.
