The official Transformers Youtube channel has posted two new Designer Desk videos, featuring designer John Warden and this time, their focus is on Superion and Menasor.

In both videos, Mr. Warden gives us a little peek behind the curtain mixed with a little bit of "How It's Made" in which he discusses the enjoyment he had in helping to bring these characters to life in plastic and shows off a few of the designers notes as to their inspiration on some of the design choices. For example, Menasor's horns came to be after receiving a bit of inspiration from Viking Gods!

You can watch both videos in the embeds below and when you're done, come on back to the forums and share your thoughts with us! After watching the videos, if you're still on the fence about these guys, check out the new toys of the Combiner Wars line in our high resolution galleries, betcha can't hold out after that!

PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today reported financial results for the first quarter 2015. Net revenues for the first quarter 2015 increased 5% to $713.5 million versus $679.5 million in 2014. Excluding a negative $62.6 million impact from foreign exchange, revenues increased 14%.

Net earnings for the first quarter 2015 were $26.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $32.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in 2014.

As reported first quarter 2014 net earnings included favorable tax adjustments of $13.5 million or $0.10 per diluted share.

"2015 is off to a good start with continued momentum in our business, led by growth in all of our Franchise Brands and the underlying strength in demand across international markets, including the emerging markets," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's President and Chief Executive Officer. "For the first quarter, we grew revenue, improved profitability and delivered growth in adjusted net earnings despite significant foreign exchange headwinds. While the first quarter is the least significant quarter of the year, the global Hasbro team delivered a strong start to the year."

"Our first quarter results highlighted the strength of our brands, our global reach and our balance sheet," said Deborah Thomas, Hasbro's Chief Financial Officer. "Foreign exchange did negatively impact both revenues and earnings in the quarter; however, several factors helped mitigate the negative impact to profitability. These included the continued momentum in our Franchise Brands, the benefit of favorable foreign exchange product cost hedges and a larger contribution of higher-margin Entertainment and Licensing revenues. Our first quarter results keep us on track to achieve our previously stated targets."
