HasCon 2017 Vs. The TFormers Wishlist: Four Things We Want(ed) To See, Revisited
RAC - Wednesday, September 13, 2017


HasCon has been and gone for the year, and by most on-hand accounts it sounds as though the show was successful at what it was trying to do. But as fans, we must ask the question core to the condition of being a fan: what about US? It seems as though we got a lot of interesting answers and even some new questions... but of course, not all the answers. Which is to be expected with NYCC around the corner, we guess - but there's so much we don't yet know about the state of Transformers for 2018. Click through as we revisit our hopes for HasCon 2017!


4. Machinima's Titans Return Animated Series


Call this one a tossup. We didn't really learn anything we hadn't been told in press releases beforehand, and the promo shown at the show was light on new footage. For something premiering in November, that's maybe a little worrying? The footage we did see looked to be on par with Combiner Wars, but little better if at all. They have moved to longer episodes though, relearning the lesson Genndy Tartakovsky learned with his Star Wars: The Clone Wars series nearly 15 years ago. We'll find out in November how much it helps, and if the writing can help shore up the awkward animation this time through.


X3. Transformers: Cyberverse


Not a peep. Which, if Cyberverse isn't appearing until sometime next year, makes sense. But again that brings us back to the question: is the leaked package art above part of Cyberverse? Since we last talked about it, we were reminded that the Big Power of the Primes Leak also mentioned a new budget-minded line titled "Transformers Authentics." Whether that ties into Cyberverse or not, we can't possibly say; but it seems likely that these G1-styled figures will fall under the Authentics label.


2. Power of the Primes


It's not so much that we learned a lot here as that much of what we'd guessed or had leaked was confirmed. And that's pretty good too! RAC has broken down what we currently know by size class (with a few guesses thrown in), but the short version: Combiners are back with better hands and feet, and it looks like there's going to be as many as three different widgets compatible with Titans Return neck sockets. Throw in Miyake Joints and you could be verging on the perfect toyline. But we're dying to know: what is Starscream's Combiner name?


X1. The New Transformers Collector's Club


Yeah, no dice here. So far, the only indications we have that one is coming were Hasbro starting an as-yet unused mailing list for the new Transformers Fan Club last year, and the filenames on Arcee's photo above. On top of which, it was apparently said at HasCon that Arcee will be headed to retail somewhere after her HasCon "First Sale" appearance. Is the new "Collector's Club" just a rebranding of the Platinum Edition subline? Who knows?

So many questions! So few answers! Hopefully New York Comic-Con will bring us some more information on many of these subjects. Until then, we'll just have to wait and watch, and see how the day's Transformers News modifies what we know, what we guess, and what we're hoping for.

We recently showed you some early in hand looks at the Titan Class Predaking set from GenmonTCracker's twitter account. As a followup, Genmon's Facebook page now contains many more "studio" style shots of the toys, both as individual Predacons and in the combined form of Predaking. The Predaking photos show the combiner looking very flexible, even doing - you guessed it - the Iron Man three-point-landing pose. And if you think the individual Predacons might be looking just a bit better ...well, that's probably just because the dark background helps the combiner thighs fade out of sight a bit. Check out all the photos in the gallery below.
Just in via Previews World, we have the latest on upcoming Transformers comics from IDW heading to shops and digital this August. The end of the universe proceeds in its own good time between issues 3 and 4 of the Unicron miniseries, with its echoes felt in issue 23 of Optimus Prime, all while Lost Light tends to its own final affairs in its own issue 23. In the movie world, the third issue of the Bumblebee prequel story, plus a separate trade paperback featuring a Bumblebee of a completely different flavor! Cover previews and blurbs can all be found below...
The Prime Masters were meant to represent the Thirteen Primes that are part of (at least one) creation mythology for the Transformers. But even as far back as last year's infamous giant leak that Hasbro assures us never actually happened, it was clear that some were missing from the planned lineup. In an image whose original source is fuzzy at best, we have what looks like part of the paperwork from Titan Class Predaking that shows the emblem forms of all 12 (the thirteenth being represented in the toyline by the Matrix) hinting that the ones currently missing from any known assortment could still happen. Check out the image below!
Though you could hardly call it the Optimal Situation, Ron Perlman as Optimus Primal would seem to be the focus of this week's episode of Power of the Primes! Again, we're not keeping up on this one... but if you'd like to, keep reading for a link to the go90 service where the show is viewable in North America.
Thanks to Twiiter user @TcrackerGenmon who's posted some in-hand image of the Titan Class Transformers Predaking team out of the box. This is one mean looking team! Here we have a look at what these figures look like in the final production colors, with paint apps, combined and in the packing. The figures appear to be packed in beast modes on a big tray with the weapon and all secured with twist-ties.
