Toy Fair 2008 - Hasbro Details 2008 Transformers Lines
bwbm - Saturday, February 16, 2008


We just finished covering the Hasbro presentation here at Toy Fair 2008 in New York. Hasbro has divulged some information about what they have in store for the Transformers line for this year.

First, Hasbro is saying that there will be some exclusive figures this year, but cannot divulge any specifics yet. Now, let's break down the news by toy lines.

Animated
  • Hasbro says they're looking forward to awesome Animated figures this year.
  • Soundwave has a guitar that transforms into Laserbeak.
  • The team has shown off the Jazz figure, which is very sharp-looking like a Japanese race car.
    "Transformers" and "Transformers 2"
  • Hasbro says they're looking forward to awesome new "Transformers" figures this year.
  • The Hasbro design team has been working with Paramount on "Transformers 2" designs for weeks now.
  • The designs are currently under review by Takara/Tomy.
    Masterpiece
  • Hasbro likes the Masterpiece molds like the jet, but nothing is planned as of yet.
    Alternators
  • The company is currently trying to figure out a way to get the Alternators line out there again, but haven't pinned down how or yet at this point.
    Transformers Crossovers
  • Star Wars Transformers and Marvel Transformers line will merge into a single line called "Transformers Crossovers"
  • With this, Hasbro has confirmed the existence of the Marvel Transformers line, despite the fact that the figures were shown at the UK Toy Fair earlier this month.

    I always thought that (at least with Barricade) that the alt mode was their strong point...

    It wouldn't really improve the bots much, except for having better hands, but they could make the cars look a whole lot snazzier and realistic than they currently do. Jazz, Barricade, and BB would be a piece of cake to pull off. Ratchet and Ironhide would be harder, but far more rewarding and... read more

    I wouldn't think that movie characters would be any better off in 1/24 scale... the Alternators are super-detailed . They've already made larger movie toys and they haven't really impressed me either.

    I do like the Classics toys, but if I had to choose between them and Alternators, I would choose Alternators. There really should be some movie Alternators, at least the ones that are regular cars. Barricade and Jazz deserve better than those crummy deluxe toys they got.

    All I ask for is Alt Smokescreen in G1 colors. Anything else, I don't care.

    More Conventions Center News
    Yet another Hasbro Fan media event is behind us at Toy Fair. From this we have lots of photos of current and upcoming toys to obsess over, as we do every year. But that's simply the obvious, most easily visible takeaway from the presentation. But we learn more than that, so it's time to look back over the day and sort out the larger scope of information we've been given from what is arguably our biggest single day of reveals for the whole year. Keep reading!
    The smallest gallery to share is that for the standard Masterpiece line. The newest entrant shown is the MP-17+ Prowl featuring animation-inspired deco and which it seems is due to get a same-month release by Hasbro going by indications from some of the US retailers. Also out at the show were Shadow Panther, with a copy of Cheetor out as a point of comparison. And rounding out the upcoming product was Dinobot, making most things around it look small. It seems that several other items were included in the display, but in the form of exclusives and other long-since released products to represent the line. You can check out the photos of the newer products below.
    Wonderfest managed to diverge a bit from Toy Fair's presentation this year in the movie product on hand. While the Studio Series line was on full display matching Hasbro's reveal, a few of this year's Movie The Best products were out in the exhibit space too - though it's probably not too unfair to say some of them were rightly outclassed by their brand new Studio counterparts. We also get to see a little bit of Move Masterpiece among these toys, resulting in the movie offerings for this year being nicely represented. Click through to check them out!
    Wonderfest is happening in Japan right now. The one day event falls just hours after the first day of Toy fair in New York, and on the Transformers side, and consistent with our earlier speculation much the same lineup of products were on display, albeit with subtle differences. Unfortunately in Power of The Primes those differences are limited to the state of finish of the various items shown, rather than things like actual deco choices. For instance, grey prototypes of Optimal Optimus and Predaking versus color versions. Click through to see these and more!
    The images are still rolling out of Toy Fair 2018. Here, we have even more Transformers showroom images featuring the mighty PREDAKING, and more. Keep checking back for more coverage from Toy Fair 2018.
