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

We here at TFormers would like to take a quick time out today to send our well wishes on to celebrated voice actor Peter Cullen, who turns (an impressively young-looking) 74 years old today. While of course in our fandom he is and always will be best known for the voice of Optimus Prime, he'd had a great career outside of the various iterations of that role, including Dungeons & Dragons, GI Joe, and of course the voice of Eeyore in numerous Winnie The Pooh animations. Happy birthday, and thank you for all you've given us!
52Toys caught sight of another SD-style Transformers product from Fewture. Their ES Gokin series will be bringing out a Fortress Maximus figure in the near future, but that's not the only thing to note here. On a display card behind Max is a silhouette that bears a distinct resemblance to Victory leader Star Saber, giving a good pointer of what might be next up after Fortress Maximus has come himself. Keep reading to check out the photos!
Finally hitting shops next week, we have the short preview for Transformers vs GI Joe issue 8, fresh off iTunes. Originally intended for release in April, the issue's publication was a bullet point at IDW's panel during SDCC earlier this month. Has it been worth the wait? Find out early next week when we post our review of the issue before it goes on sale next Wednesday. Keep reading for the pages and the very brief teaser text.
