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

TAG Hobby has posted images of the Oritoy Hero of Steel Series 01 Optimus Prime! A hefty figure at 23cm (about 9 inches), the nontransforming HoS Prime sports forty points of articulation, is made of ABS plastic and diecast metal, and comes with both Prime's Ion Blaster and a Megatron gun for the figure to use. This very Gundam-like figure is due out on Spring of 2016 for HKD $950 (about $122 USD as of this writing.) Click through to see the gallery!
It was launch day for Transformers Devastation today, and among the many who purchased the game were Radio Free Cybertron's Brian Kilby and diecast. They decided to share some of their first day's play through on RFC's Youtube channel, giving you a chance to look at how the game actually handles. Kilby is playing on PC and takes a while to stop being devastated, while diecast is on PS4 with a solid ~45 minute session to watch. We've got all the videos embedded, so click through and take a look!
Activision Publishing, Inc. today released TRANSFORMERS: Devastation. This new third-person action-brawler rolls into battle with Hasbro’s classic Generations designs. The game’s gripping single-player campaign features 50 highly challenging bonus missions with any of five playable heroes! OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK. Each of these characters can be evolved with new abilities, unique talents and more than 150 upgradeable weapons.
Machinima has posted a pair of videos today for Transformers Devastation, just hours away from retail availability. Both videos focus on Optimus Prime, and the voice clips do a good job showing the Peter Cullen still has the more fun, energetic cartoon Optimus Prime inside him. One video highlights battle between Optimus and Megatron, while the second is a more general overview of Optimus through the game. We have both of them embedded, plus plenty of screencaps, so click through to check it out!
With little time remaining before the game is released across the various platforms, the Transformers Game Facebook is cranking out the promo materials. Most recently we've gotten some concept art for the Decepticon generic ground troops, collectively the Battlechargers - one type based on the Generations Wheeljack body (like the Collectors Club exclusives) and another being a simplified version of Blitzwing. We also have nice art of Shockwave in robot and gun modes. Click through and check it all out!
