Age of Extinction
Hasbro Answers Your Burning Questions Part 9!

By bwbm on Thursday, June 10, 2010



We have received the responses back from Hasbro on your latest round of burning questions! In this installment, the questions include the future of combiners, and why Generations is strictly a Deluxe line of figures.

Tformers: After 26 years, why has the inclusion of a robot, alt, and limb suddenly become too hard to make even in lieu of rising prices?

Does Hasbro see combiners returning to actual Transformers after Power Core combiners? Or are drones a new kind of playability for the foreseeable future?


Hasbro: While we understand your passion for the traditional combination figures from G1, Energon, etc., however, the great part about Transformers is that things can change over time. So it is not a question of difficulty or costs, but more about how can a great concept like combination be re-imagined and re-invented.

For example, in creating the new Power Core Combiner line, we wanted to establish a "system" of play that allowed kids the opportunity to not only play with the teams of figures, but also have the ability to create their own teams by collecting more and more figures.

Additionally, we also wanted to expand the story line of Combiners, thus the reason and rationale for drones, mini-cons and certain characters all working together as a team.

What was the reason behind making the Generations line strictly Deluxe?

We felt that Deluxe was the best scale to achieve our design vision and goals for this segment at this time. Thus, we did not feel that adding other scales would add to this line at this time.

A member of the 2005 forums spotted an interesting prototype among the special features on the TF4 Blu-Ray. A designer is holding a new Dinobot of some type, and one that very much looks like a new riff on the stylized Animated Grimlock design. Odds are good the Dinobot leader is going to figure into the show released on the heels of Age of Extinction, but the question remains: is this our next Grimlock? Keep reading to see the photo!
YouTuber chuckdawg1999 has reviewed Construct-Bots Hound and Wideload! Hound looks pretty good in both modes, and Wideload turns into a nifty set of armor and weapons for Hound - but Chuck does have some concerns about the construction. Keep reading to see the review!

For those who prefer their Dinobot leaders in a less warm color profile and their Optimus Primes fully painted, ToysRUs has the set you've been looking for! The Platinum Edition set of the Leader-class figures is now up on ToysRUs' website at a price of $109.99. That stings a bit, but since Leaders go for $45-50 each now it's not as much of a markup as it could be. Especially from ToysRUs. Keep reading for the link!
Steve Jablonsky has posted to his official Facebook page that the score for Age of Extinction will be released on Tuesday, October 7th.
