Botcon 2005 - Hasbro Panel Report - New Series Proposed!

SFC has just walked out of the Hasbro Panel at Day 3 of BotCon 2005. We have our first updates with news of an all new Transformers series to run between Cybertron and the Movie. This is major stuff! Think Alternators meets Cybertron.

Cyberton story concept written on a taco bell napkin:

Retool
o Same mold, adding detail
o Good for small changes
o Surface detail only

New Parts
o Swapping out parts from a mold for 100% newly made parts
o Good for heads
o Weapons
o Replace an entire mold

New Tools
- Total new mold
- Fact: you cannot rework steel dramatically
- If a TF is 15% different it is a new mold
- You cannot add size to a mold

Proposal for After Cybertron
Alternator´┐Żs Realism/Cybertron Playability. Example figures shown:

o G1, modern take on Starscream - F15, highly detailed.
PICS (Bot & Vehicle): Starscream is kind of like a cross between a modern Macross figure, and a larger Robot Masters Starscream in vehicle mode. It looks almost exactly like a F-15 display model. In bot mode it's pretty menacing with some HUGE guns on his arms.

o Megatron as a gun. Huge - revolver-like, but obviously fake.
PIC (Bot): For a comparison of what the gun looks like. It kind of looks like the gun from 'Judge Dredd', but with a fat scope on the top of it.

NOTE: One thing to note is it this series not even really set in stone....it is just a proposal for the filler series.

SFC

Stay tuned. More details to come...
