The panel and new reveals may be over, but the coverage of San Diego Comic Con is still coming! Thanks to our (boss)man on the scene, site owner Seibertron, we have our gallery of images shown at the Hasbro Brand Panel! The gallery ranges from recaps of already-released figures, soon-to-be-released figures, and newly revealed figures, such as the Generations: Combiner Wars Aerialbots, Stunticons (whose leader, Motormaster, like Bombshell, has reclaimed his true name), and our first look at a handful of toys from the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) line, including our first look at the Warrior-class (the new Deluxe-class) Bumblebee! The full gallery can be viewed here.
Enjoy these images for now, as later in the day we'll get the official images of these new reveals!
Seibertron is currently attending the Hasbro Transformers panel at SDCC, where new, current and older products are being discussed! Find below a summary of the event as it comes through, with images, notes, comments and whatever is sent our way.

Voyager Optimus Prime shown at BotCon combines with Combiners
Ladies and gentlemen, put on your anti-nerdgasm pants! Starting off our coverage of San Diego Comic Con 2014, we have our Breakfast Event images, which show off our first look at combiners Superion (first teased at BotCon last month) and Menasor! These combiners, part of next year's Generations: Combiner Wars series, are prototypes and show display pieces, hence the hot glue on spots and some wibbly bits and pieces here and there.
As many have guessed, Menasor's central figure is indeed a Motormaster redeco of the Generations Voyager Optimus Prime (also first revealed at BotCon) figure! Also worth noting is that Superion and Menasor are joined by additional characters which are not actually a part of the traditional Aerialbot and Stunticon teams... Superion wields Legends Powerglide as a weapon, and Menasor uses an as-of-yet revealed Legends buddy to form Menasor's traditional car-torso-shield!
Check out the images below, which have been mirrored from our full gallery of the Breakfast Event, which can be viewed here!
The kind and talented man that is composer Steve Jablonsky, the mind behind all live-action Transformers movies scores, has posted on his official Facebook page a couple of announcements regarding the Age of Extinction score and some juicy news about his attendance at SDCC 2014! Read on below to find out more about potential upcoming albums, ways to win signed score sheets and even the elusive Transformers (2007) CD set!
And by the way, for those asking about an Age of Extinction CD release, I am doing everything I can to make it happen. There are a lot of factors that go into a studio's decision whether or not to release physical copies of a movie score. They definitely lean towards digital releases. It's less expensive and that is just the way things are headed now. I have made my argument that there are still a lot of soundtrack fans out there who appreciate holding a real CD in their hands, and appreciate listening to CD quality audio. I am doing everything I can.
I do have some copies of the original TF1 score, I know there are some people who were not able to get a copy before it went out of print. I'll sign a couple of those for this weekend's Comic Con tweet fest Watch out for questions at @jablonsky_steve
Thanks to all of you for the love and support.
Heading down to Comic Con today, really looking forward to meeting everyone. I'm bringing some goodies with me to give away after the panel, which gave me an idea for everyone who is not able to attend. I was thinking I might tweet out pictures of Comic Con craziness, seems like a fun way to get more into Twitter. But what if I randomly throw in a Transformers question, and the first person to reply with the right answer will receive a signed score page. Don't worry the questions will be easy
If anyone is interested you'll find me over on Twitter under the name @jablonsky_steve
Hopefully I'll meet some of you in person down in San Diego!
