Hasbro Answers Your Burning Questions Part V!

By bwbm on Tuesday, August 11, 2009



We have received the responses from Hasbro, Inc. to the questions that were posed by and voted on by the TFormers Community!

Q: With the release of 3 of the individually transformable Constructicons and Long Haul coming out next, will we see the remaining Constructicons (e.g., Scrapper, Hightower) released?

Hasbro: Unfortunately, there are no plans at this time to release any additional Constucticons past those that we have currently announced.

Q: What kind of exciting figures can we expect from the Transformers Universe line?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is short. As we have mentioned in this forum previously, the Universe line ended once the Revenge of the Fallen product line hit shelves on May 30th. Therefore there will be no new development for this line moving forward.

However, the design intentions behind the Universe line, such as reimaging our heritage figures, will continue in some form or fashion in the future and it is too soon to discuss which figures these will be.

[It should also be noted that during the Transformers panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2009, the panelists stated that the line means too much to too many people. So they will definitely be working on new things for the line -ed.]

Q: After a 25 year long toy and animated series run and with the current popularity of the comic books and live action movies, do you think that the seemingly obvious morals of good versus evil, compassion, respect, and understanding that Optimus Prime (and thus Hasbro) established starting in Generation 1 have changed due to the popularity and demand of an increase in sexual related content, violence and vulgar language such as that displayed in the current movie?

[This answer was left unanswered by the Hasbro Q&A Respondees. However, Aaron Archer said during the SDCC 2009 panel that because it is a blockbuster film, the character have a bit more leeway in terms of vulgarity and violence. -ed.]

Ok, granted - Bottom line is Bay was just pushing the toilet humor to see how far he could get with it and hopefully, if he and the writers and their entourage read the reactions like they say they do, they'll know in the next movie to dial it back. That being said, it still doesn't wash... read more

Hang on I gotta get my violin... Your talking about one character(and I know girlscream and the constructicons) who have no other representation. Otherwise they're completeing the line. TBH, you have the right to be upset about that. I would have liked an Omega myself, and there doing the same... read more

Petitions rarely work. Look, we're 18% or so of their market. They won't lose most of us just because of this and they all ready know we want those figures. Even if petitions did work, most kids won't know, care about or sign this.

No... You just have to accept the fact that you wont get every TF that shows up in the movie... Remember Animated fans didnt get Omega Supreme and he played a big role in the show... Anyways I rather they dedicate their time to more HA figures over a couple of "individual" Constructicons.... read more

It's been... what, maybe a couple weeks now? Which means it's time for another Japanese toy show. Today, courtesy of TAG Hobby, we've got new shots of Kotobukiya's upcoming D-Style model kits of Starscream, Skywarp, & Thundercracker, and they look pretty good! While Skywarp and Thundercracker are running in terror at the sight of Megatron, Starscream seems to have skipped straight to the dry heaves. Keep reading to see the images!
Multiple outlets have reported that Herb Trimpe, the first artist to draw Wolverine and GI Joe, has passed away suddenly at the age of 75. As an artist for Marvel Comics, Trimpe drew a handful of issues of the G1 Transformers comic, as well as GI Joe vs The Transformers and the covers to the Transformers Universe miniseries. By all accounts he was a much loved and respected comics artist and human being, and will be missed. More details on Mr. Trimpe's career after the jump.
At East Coast Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Comics inker Dave Hunt had a selection of his work on display, and included among these pages are parts of an unpublished adaptation of the season three cartoon episode Dweller In The Depths. Reportedly issues like this were prepared as backups in case the normal monthly storylines weren't turned in on time. Only a few pages survive to today, but Roboplastic Apocalypse was able to take photos, which were posted to their Facebook page. Click through, and have a look!
Optimus Prime! Transforms from tractor trailer to robot with headquarters and back. That’s the whole point of Transformers, figures that can be converted between modes. While the process of going between configurations is an important one, we can often attach more importance to factors such as appearance, scale, accessories, aesthetics, posability and the like. But this week, I will be listing my personal top 5 transformation sequences across all the official Hasbro and Takara Tomy Transformers toys that I have had the pleasure of experiencing.
