By which we mean, "Slash can seat a Prime Master or Titan Master on/in her back in Dino Mode."
This revelation comes to us by way of M Sipher
on Twitter, who is at HasCon alongside folks from Radio Free Cybertron and TFormers! While we don't yet know if she interacts with Volcanicus,
the freshly-announced Dinobot combiner, this is still pretty cool. Keep reading to see the image!
Thanks once again to Eric Crownover,
we've got our first image of Power of the Primes
Voyager Starscream's combined form! There's not a lot of details - and the package conveniently omits who you might combine him with,
with very few appropriate candidates in the line so far - but he's got his G1 crown in this mode, so all is well. Battles between Lord Starscream and Sky Reign will soon be a possibility... keep reading for a closer look!
Be aware! If you're at HasCon 2017, be advised: contrary to the printed schedule and what we reported on earlier, the Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye
Brand Panel time has been changed from 5:30 PM EDT to TEN MINUTES FROM THIS POSTING, 11:30 AM EDT.
Even the printed schedules are incorrect on this, with the website being the only indicator. Thanks to Eric Crownover
for confirming this for us!
The Transformers Cars
Facebook page has also posted images of the Prototypes display at HasCon 2017! There's a lot of grayscale figures from lines of recent years on display, and even a few color pieces like an unproduced Battle Damage War For Cybertron
Bumblebee! But also, there's a grayscale copy of Power of the Primes
Voyager Starscream... and he's wearing his special "Bucklers," which are undeniably dedicated feet for his Combiner Mode! Keep reading to see it all!
The Transformers Cars
Facebook page has posted the first photos of the Power of the Primes
display from HasCon 2017! As you might expect, it's all stuff we saw at SDCC 2017, and the special "bucklers" that would likely confirm his Combiner capabilities are still not present on Voyager Starscream. All in all, exactly what we'd expect the display to look like before
the Hasbro panel. Keep reading for the photos!
Stan just dropped by to let us know he will be performing in concert at HASCON (Hasbro/Transformers convention) on Sept 9, and will be on hand for autographs throughout the weekend of Sept 8-10!
Stan will also be there promoting his new album “Change the World”. The official release of the album is Sept 22, but advance copies will be available at the convention.
Primitive Prime would've been cool even without the benefit of being only $5 more than a Leader class figure usually is. But he's also that - if you got it in the very
brief window it was available. But he's a fun recolor, has a great new set of accessories, and his head turns into a tiny robot named Shreddicus Maximus.

Thanks to the fine folks at Hasbro, we've got the SDCC 2017 exclusive Revolution Boxset to show you all, and we're starting off with a huge gallery of the entire set! The Revolution set includes Leader Class Jetfire which is virtually identical to the TakaraTomy Legends release, plus figures of ROM, a Dire Wraith, Action Man, Matt Trakker, Roadblock, Leoric, and a small army of Micronauts. Understandably, that resulted in a lot of photos - almost 400 of them! So you can check out in detail the full contents of this huge boxset, so click through and get started now. And we have a handy "chapter" list in the full post below to go right where you want to start!

Hasbro just announced that Transformers: The Last Knight star Mark Wahlberg will be joining the exciting HASCON line-up on Saturday, September 9th! Mark will be participating in the Transformers: The Last Knight panel, and he’ll also celebrate the Transformers legacy at the 10 Years of Transformers VIP Dinner on Saturday evening. You can find full details below. HASCON is taking place September 8 – 10, 2017 at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
Hasbro was excellent enough to send us over a very large box filled with a number of the exclusive items they had on offer at SDCC and just this week on Hasbro Toy Shop for us to check out. We'll be working on bringing you coverage of these items very soon, but in the meantime you can find out just what all we received by checking out the unboxing video I shot as I cracked in to the shipping carton. And let me tell you, there was no wasted space in that box! That video is embedded below, and be sure to watch for more coverage on these items coming up!
Yesterday (just about 24 hours ago from the time of this post) many of Hasbro's SDCC exclusives went live on Hasbro Toy Shop. While Star Wars merchandise was revealed to be held back until September 1st, Transformers, GI Joe, Marvel, and Magic: The Gathering items all activated to a waiting population of SDCC non-attendees. It was a question as to the overall response, since the 2016 exclusive offerings were notable for not selling through very quickly. Keep reading for a rundown on what happened next!
has posted his videos from the TFNation 2017 panel on the G1 episode "Heavy Metal War"! In these videos - timed to go along with the live presentation at the con - storyboards are compared to the final animation, the differences between that animation and the error-filled rough cuts are shown, and a series of extended and deleted scenes are reconstructed with a combination of the recently-discovered G1 dialogue tapes and the storyboards! Keep reading to see!
SDCC this year featured exclusives in a bit different style from what we're used to, but still made a good showing. For all of us who weren't able to go to San Diego and spend hours in lines waiting to try to buy some of the goodies in person, the home edition of that game is about to start. At some unspecified time tomorrow, Hasbro Toy Shop will go live with inventory of several exclusives, including Primitive Skateboarding Optimus, the Revolution 16-Figure Box Set, and Voyager Movie Optimus with a piece of material from a screen-used vehicle tire. Keep reading for a link to the Exclusives category and more info!
The Nottingham Robot Company
has posted images to their Facebook page of a new upgrade kit they'll be pre-releasing exclusively at TFNation! It's a simple kit but a good one: a pair of hand-chromed engine blocks convert any two Titan Masters into engine blocks styled after Mega and Giga, Overlord's G1 Powermasters/Godmasters! A head block is also included for Overlord's faceplate, which promises putting the face "in a more prominent position" and with "an easter egg for longtime comic book fans." Keep reading to see the announcement and images!
