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.

Following the now world famous gaff with Transformers 4 Age of Extinction director Michael Bay's at Samsung UHDTV Curve TV debut. We have some so-called "leaked footage" of exlcusive movie material that Bay said he would be giving Samsung to promote their new UHDTV Curve TV. Watch the clip that shows a bunch of new scenes, that may or may not be in the movie, demonstrating the incredible technology after the jump. Unfortunately, the video is too far away to make out the scenes.
This is a public service announcement! After much confusion on the web, I thought I would go ahead and review the new Transformers Age of Extinction Flip & Change figure - as this is ***NOT*** The Voyager Generations Advanced Movie figure. This is for kids! So, sit back, pop some corn, and check this out... for the little ones....
Thanks again to YouTuber Transformers And Power Rangers Toy Reviews who have posted a video review of the Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Grimlock Voyager Class action figure. The reviewer says: "Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Voyager Grimlock has his flaws, but he really is an excellent figure with an obscene amount of character and gravitas. I haven't seen figures with posture like this since the glory days of Transformers Animated. Watch the video review of this"
Thanks to youtuber Optibotimus who has posted a video review for Dinobot Slug Transformers Age of Extinction deluxe class figure. Get the scoop on this new toy that won't be in stores till May 17th. See the figure in his robot mode and transformed to beast mode with all the details in between by watching the Dinobot Slug video review below.
Thanks again to YouTuber Transformers And Power Rangers Toy Reviews who have posted a video review of the Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Smash and Change Optimus Prime action figure. The reviewer says: "Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Smash and Change Optimus Prime isn't a good toy, but his saving grace is he actually works, unlike the Flip and Change Grimlock figure. I do not recommend this guy, but I could see his clicky-pen transformation being interesting if a future figure did more with it." Watch the review to see why.
