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.
