The rumour mill keeps on grinding, and we have another Toys'R'Us system sighting thanks to fellow fansite TFW2005's user Icespark. It appears that two listings have been found in the catalogues, showing a Hasbro release of Masterpiece Blustreak - something we reported on all the way back in June from BotCon - priced at $59.99, and, potentially more interesting for some, a 'Megatronus' figure, priced at $29.99, with no other detail as to what line, type or any other indication of toy this might be. Check out the listings for yourself below!

TFW2005 member CATZ has been given some interesting news after one of his suppliers attended the recent "Hasbro Asia Showroom" closed doors event.

A major part of these details are regarding the Generations Devastator figure which was confirmed to exist in the Toysrus database at a 179.99$ canadian price tag.

Here are the notes he took down after talking with his supplier.

"Just got great news(regarding Generations Devastator) from my supplier:
- All new mold
- Awesome
- Huge
- Box are metroplex sized
- Combination of voyagers and 1 leader (the number of bots inside the box are not confirmed yet - sorry for the mess)
- green
- sdcc will be yellow

Also
G1 box set:
- Blaster
- perceptor
- Insecticon
- Trypticon
- g1 cone head set"


CATZ has proven to be a reliable source in the past as it was he who first posted about the first waves of Movie Advanced Series toys like Dispensor.

This seems to answer a lot of questions people have been asking recently, although Hasbro has yet to make an official announcement. So remember, Keep calm and discuss in the Energon Pub Forum!

Good news for toy aficionados! Courtesy of TFW2005 user D-Drive, we have information of case breakdowns (not Breakdown) for as-of-yet seen Robots in Disguise (2015) products! Worth noting, though, is that according to the user, they are Canadian-based, so what we see tonight might be different than what we will see in the future. They are as follows:

TRANSFORMERS RID DECEPTICON HUNTER STAR WARSWORD BLASTER (4)
TRANSFORMERS RID NERF MEGA 1-STEP OPTIMUS PRIME (3)
TRANSFORMERS RID SUPER BUMBLEBEE (SFX)(2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS DEPLOYERS (2)
TRANSFORMERS RID MASKS ASST (6)
TRANSFORMERS RID BUMBLEBEE BLASTER (4)
TRANSFORMERS RID MINICONS (8)


Also, to lend credence to the ever-popular Generations: Combiner Wars Devastator rumor (now confirmed to be happening), D-Drive was also able to find out how many Devastators fans will be getting per case:

TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS DEVASTATOR (2)


2013's release of the behemoth Generations Metroplex also contained two per case, so this small update could also confirm that Devastator will be classified as a Titan-class figure.

What do you, dear readers, think of this small update? Excited for Devastator? Itching to know what these RiD'15 products look like? Share your thoughts in the Energon Pub, and join us in the month-long wait until Toy Fair 2015, where these products will more than likely get their spotlight.

It's speculation and wishful thinking time, thanks to a post on the Cybergeeks Alliance Facebook page, apparently by fellow fan Fudyn Randomspawner. Taken from the instruction booklet for Transformers Generations Legends class Bombshell, the user has spotted what looks like a Megatron design sported alongside one of Masterpiece Optimus Prime, possibly Bumblebee, or maybe even a potential Cliffjumper. As we said, all of this is speculation, undoubtedly with a lot of wishful thinking, so get out the salt - but in the meantime, check out the image for yourselves!

According to USAtoday, Hasbro is in talks to buy DreamWorks, the Studio behind animated movie franchises as Shrek and Madagascar. While NY Times is citing anonymous sources that talks are in "advance stages" and the deal would include a combination of stocks and cash. This deal with Hasbro would forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. With Hasbro already owning 40% of Discovery Family, they are making it clear that they want to be the leader of family entertainment, using this media to promote their games and toys including Transformers.



According to Deadline.com, "DreamWorks Animation is deeply engaged in two potentially game changing negotiations that could transform the company — including one with Hasbro to forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. The other talks are with Hearst to turn DWA's AwesomenessTV into a joint venture."

DreamWorks' Jeffrey Katzenberg would become chairman of the combined operation, the website says.

This has been a long way in the rumour mill by now, but it seems more and more the case that director Michael Bay will indeed not be returning to the Paramount/Hasbro franchise, working instead with the studios on other projects. The 'confirmation' - and please notice the quotation marks - comes from sites such as Variety and IGN, but, and we cannot stress this enough, it has not been officially confirmed by Bay or Paramount yet. Read on below for yourselves to see what you make of it!

After making it clear he will not be directing the next “Transformers” pic, Michael Bay may have found a project that doesn’t involve larger-than-life robots.

[...]

Bay said in August that while the next “Transformers” is already dated, he would not be returning to direct, and while this film will not feature the same elements, it still fits into his wheelhouse of action-heavy material


Bay said he believes he'll hand directing duties on Transformers 5 over to someone else so he can work on other projects, such as a documentary about elephant poaching. "There's kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make," said Bay, who's helmed all four live-action Transformers flicks. "I have a lot of stories to tell. And it's about flexing new muscles."

Seibertron.com Member Autobot Genocide dropped by and pointed us in the direction to an interesting little rumor. It looks like there my be an Ultra Magnus listing alongside the current Generations Leaders

From DecepticusPrime@tfw2005


Whilst scanning through the transformers at work today, I scanned the AOE leaders and found the 2 Megatrons to be crossed with the movie leaders and a listing for an Ultra Magnus.


Please treat this as nothing more than a rumor for now. So Masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Generations Leader class Ultra Magnus in the same year? Will this be a new mold or another Prime repaint? Let us know what you think and speculate away here at our Energon Pub and remember keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!

Some sneaky news from the SDCC 2014 Transformers panel, as the Hasbro News Twitter account took questions - for one hour - from fans during the preview evening, and are currently answering a selection of them. The first question answered concerns the possibility of more Generations Titans figure, after last year's Metroplex (and its SDCC 2013 exclusive counterpart!).

Metroplex was tied to the Fall of Cybertron game. Big character, big product & you guys love him.

We're always looking to do things that tie together with our great stories.

If you guys continue to love the great products we put out we're going to continue to make them!


The second answer addresses the return of fan-favourite Transformers: Prime Knock Out.

We always get lots of Q's abt everyone's favorite characters from #Transformers lore.

We look at Transformers and there’s 1000’s of wonderful characters to choose from each year.

We think about all the great fans of all ages from Rescue Bots fans to Generations fans.

So we try to balance the toy line each year to pick characters that fans of all ages will love.


(Someone hasn't been reading their IDW Publishing comics of recent..)

Third question is about more characters, Hot Rod and Blurr!

Hot Rod & Blurr – some of our favorites & great characters from our history that many know & love!

Each year we think about the stories we want to tell to Transformers fans of all ages.

We want to make sure we’re tying the product line with the stories being told.

We love to get fans’ feedback as we move forward and build new stories for all of our fans.



All of which sounds like the most non-committal definitely maybe answer in a while. But feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub discussion boards: what do you think? Will we get more Titan Class figures? Would you like to see more of a particular character?
