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?
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.]
