NYCC is happening now! Yes, already: barely a month after HasCon and the week after TFCon, we've got another major convention happening. Twitch TV is streaming presentations from the event, and Hasbro's Transformers presentation is scheduled for between 11:15 and 11:45 this morning, so hopefully we'll see some of it! Keep reading to see, and we'll update with info as it happens! PS: Note that some of the ads and other content on the stream are likely NSFW

-A lot of people asked for a Dinobot combiner. They're trying to make everything happen, and folks keep asking for new stuff.
-Volcanicus available now in Earth Wars game. Titans Return Machinima premieres next month! The team enjoys getting a chance to tell stories.
-Presented wants a GIANT Unicron. John: "And a giant storage unit to keep it in?" They get that one a lot.
-It's great working on this brand because you get to be a geek and think about what geeks love.
-Who was your favorite growing up? John: Roadbuster & Whirl, because they weren't in the show and he could make his own stories. He used to make Energon using sugar cubes. Host did it too! Ben's favorite was Optimus. It's been cool to hang out with Peter Cullen. He lives the character. He respects the character, and he's the voice of Optimus pretty much everywhere.
-The host's was Soundwave. John points out that Soundwave was voiced by Frank Welker, voice of Megatron. As were all his tapes, so there's a 5-minute stretch of Welker just talking to himself in G1.
-HasbroToyShop is where to go for Grotusque. Volcanicus available everywhere in 2018!
-Host thanks John and Ben for playing with toys with him. That's it!
