BotCon 2010 - Live from the Hasbro Marketing and Q&A

Panel includes Greg Lombaro, Matt Proulx (one of the good guys on the team), Eric Siebenaler, Brian Welken.

Fall 2010

They are currently showing off characters we have seen before.

  • Sunspot - Skystalker Repaint

  • Deluxe
  • Sidearm Sideswipe - If you lift the back of the car, the guns will be revealed.
  • Hailstorm - all eight missiles can come out. Do not shoot out, though. Hands are well-sculpted. He looks clumsy, so that's why his weapons are up there.
  • Elita - 1 - repaints to round out the three.
  • Tomahawk - Searched the name and found it was available. Apache helicopter that has projectile missiles and on the shoulders.
  • Terradive - new mold and has a new head.
  • Electrostatic Jolt - repaint
  • Rescue Ratchet
  • Seaspray

  • Voyager
  • Battle Blades Optimus Prime - transformation is much better this time around. The chest is removable and you take the Matrix of Leadership out. It's the movie version, though. Hooks and different heads will be available in other redecos later on.
  • Banzai-Tron - "He is Awesome"
  • Highbrow - Will be in the case after the panel. Propellers actually spin. Mask goes up and down.

  • Leader
  • Starscream
  • Optimus Prime with the hooks that are articulated and store just like the blades.
  • Battle Ops Bumblebee - The figure has a lot of easter eggs. In robot mode: battle mask, converting plasma cannon, and shoulder gatling guns. Depending on the mask is up or down, he will be goofy or serious, respectively.

  • Human Alliance
  • Jazz and Captain Lennox - they are designed after the first movie. You can flip his visor up and down.
  • Mikaela and Sideswipe - Redeco Sideswipe with new Mikeala design with a pony tail.

  • Generations

  • Cybertronian Bumblebee
  • Cybertronian Optimus Prime
  • Drift - has smaller swords on the side of the figure
  • Thrust
  • Cybertornian Megatron
  • Darkmount - one of Joe's favorites. It is important to get the pic to fit where the figure can hold both hands. And for those of you who don't know, the figure is supposed to be Straxus.
  • Red Alert
  • Dirge!
  • Blurr! Looks very much like the G1 that it should be.
  • Power Core Combiners

    They are addressing the issues of combiners. They wanted to try something new and not just go back to the old combiner look. They are asking us to buy their toy.

  • Windburn w/ Darkray (helicopter repaint)
  • Steelshot w/pinpoint (repaint)
  • 5-PACK
  • Rallybots
  • Mudslinger with Destructioncs
  • Stakeout with Protectobots (repaint of Rallybots)
  • Crankcase with Destron - the team that's going to be the Stunticons. We will revisit that later on.
  • Q&A Time

    Will there be a story around Power Core Combiners?
    There currently isn't a story, but everything we do is part of the narrative.
