New York Toy Fair 2017 - New Transformers Cartoon In 2018, Potentially G1 Inspired
RAC - Friday, February 17, 2017


This is another story to take with a grain of salt today. The Hasbro Pre-Toy Fair Investors' Presentation has shown off a chart depicting Hasbro's Transformers media strategy for the next three years. Robots In Disguise is indicated as coming to a close this year as the cartoon intended for the "Core Kids" demographic. But... is that G1 coming in to replace it in 2018? ...maybe, maybe not. We're leaning towards not, and you can click through to read our logic on the subject!



The images shown for the 2018-19 show do indeed show G1 characters, but it's extremely likely that these are intended as a placeholder for a new Transformers series that is not yet ready to be shown to the public. Most likely we'll find out more about the successor to RiD at SDCC 2017, or possibly even HasCon. Still, what a tantalizing image!

At the moment, all the chart seems to put in concrete terms is that RID ends this year, and that we can expect Machinima's Titans Return in 2017 and Power of the Primes in 2018.

The website Time & Space put up a gallery of images of an interesting new promotion for the AU x Transformers Infobar Optimus Prime figure: a cardboard sculpture of the toy! The intricately designed and assembled sculpture is the work of artist Monami Ohno, whose work in the medium of cardboard is very impressive indeed- even the logos and numbers on the phone parts are carefully-cut cardboard. Keep reading to see the image!
Thanks to Kevin Liu we now have a very good look at Leader class Rodimus Prime, capping off the first wave of Power of The Primes. Kevin's video is of course in Chinese, but presented clearly enough to tell what's going on anyway. Most interestingly, we get side by sides with Titans Return Hot Rod, which shows the Hot Rod form of this toy to actually be a fair bit bigger. As Titans Return Hot Rod was already a bit big for a Deluxe, you can imagine the new one is surely pushing the boundaries of being comparable with Deluxes! The video as well as plenty of screencaps can all be found below - keep reading to see it all!
Through a Facebook video, we finally have a look at the retail version of POTP Rodimus Prime, the second toy in the first Leader assortment. Sadly the video itself is probably not worth watching, being both shot in vertical/portrait orientation and being quite low-res. You can find stills taken from the video highlighting key points for a quick look at the toy. We do have the video embedded just below as well, if you're dying to see the toy in action or get an early look at how some of the transformation works. Click through to check it all out!
