Transformers Reveals from BotCon

Greetings, TRANSFORMERS fans!

This morning at The Official TRANSFORMERS Convention — BotCon— in San Diego, California, Hasbro's TRANSFORMERS brand team revealed several amazing new TRANSFORMERS toys, as well as the 2013 inductees to the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame.

This year's TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame class, as entirely voted on by TRANSFORMERS fans online, consists of the following two characters:

BEAST WARS MEGATRON

An insane, hyper-intelligent criminal mastermind who led a group of renegade PREDACONS to Earth in search of the Energon they would need to conquer CYBERTRON, MEGATRON became so much more than a petty felon. When the search led to the discovery of alien artifacts, MEGATRON launched an assault on Time itself, seeking to change history to his benefit. He nearly destroyed CYBERTRON in his mad quest to exterminate the TRANSFORMERS, and was stopped only when OPTIMUS PRIMAL brought him down. He returned, determined to have his vengeance, and his battle with the MAXIMAL leader raged across the multiverse!

ULTRA MAGNUS

As the commander of the most elite AUTOBOT special forces unit ever assembled, you'd expect ULTRA MAGNUS to be just about one of the most unstoppable warriors this side of the galactic core. You’d be right. If there is any AUTOBOT the DECEPTICONS fear as much as OPTIMUS PRIME, it is ULTRA MAGNUS. His battle hammer has crushed chassis from one side of the galaxy to the other. No battlefield on which his armored feet have stepped has ever been yielded to the DECEPTICONS.

More Generations News
TFW member SydneyY has taken time to give us a translation of Figure King Magazine's recent interview with TakaraTomy designer Hironori Kobayashi. The interview has some general coverage, but focuses specially on the development of Generations (or "Legends") Arcee and Kobayashi's unique background in design for the character, which we've written about previously. Keep reading to check out the translated interview!
The Allspark is reporting that an anonymous Wal-Mart employee has leaked a new batch of inventory listings. Among these are a group of new Deluxe and Legends figures featuring familiar Protectobot names, lending weight to long speculation that Defensor would join the Combiner Wars. The list also backs up additional fan theories of how some team members may be utilized, as well as giving us two possibly unrelated new items coming in 2015.
