Now that Hasbro has freed itself from the preparation and happenings of BotCon, they have provided us with the answer to our burning questions part IV!
TFormers.com: Will newly-introduced Transformers Animated characters from Season 3 such
as Rodimus Prime or Strika be produced for the toyline?
Hasbro: While we can't comment on which specific characters will be available in the
toy line, there are definitely a few that debuted in Season 3 of the
Animated Series. [From BotCon 2009, we have since learned that Rodimus will indeed get a figure -ed]
Do you ever check out fan forums like TFormers.com, for customization
Considering the amazing stuff that fans create with mostly minor
modifications & paint on existing molds it would seem like an excellent
source of leads to expand the product lines while heavily reusing existing
As a team we often review many of the fan forums to keep our finger on the
pulse of our collectors, but we do not and cannot use ideas from our fan
base. We know that our fans come up with some great ideas especially when
they coincide with where we are taking the brand!
Can we expect to see a "Premium" figure series in the upcoming movie line
similar to the line from the 2007 film?
At the moment, there are no plans to offer a premium series line. Rather
than offering more new decos of existing molds, you can expect to see more
new molds in the realistic movie styling than you did in Spring of 2008
following the first film.
