Hasbro Announce Transformers x Uncanny X-Men Collaboration

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Could just be like the street fighter transformers, pick a transformer that some how represents x-men. Punch/counter punch might make for classic X-men uniform one side and 90's X-men uniform on the other. Whatever it is hopefully they've got funkoesque licencing so that it isnt priced at double the respective class of the figure.

I'd be down for a titan class blackbird that changes into the dangeroom with an included Danger marvels legend figure (wouldnt be able to pilot it but maybe could be dropped from a bomb hatch). Include some faces of xmen titan masters to pilot it (the heads of the characters were always on the comics iirc).

Does "Desperately hoping to make money/regain relevance" count as a long term goal?

Because comic sales as a whole are not in a good place right now and sometimes immediate survival replaces "long term goal."

Don't have to look much farther than the 90's alternate cover phase to find sometimes comic companies go for the spaghetti "everything against the wall" approach and hope something catches on.

And right now give TF toy sales it is possible it is the stronger brand than the X-Men after Disney ran the franchise into the ground to spite Fox.

Oh yeah the Street fighter ones. Uh. If it's that no thank you.

It's probably a new mold, like Maverick. The Blackbird has a very distinct shape.

The Street Fighter figures were a Takara-only thing not part of (and predating) Hasbro's Collaborative line, which this is a part of.

You know what I always thought would awesome?

Transforming Thundertank from Thundercats.

It'll never happen, but man that would be sweet.

I've considered trying to make my own with RID Scavenger (from Beast Machines?), but have never really figured out HOW.

That's a bit harsh. I won't digress into the matter not to go OT, but... well, there are many more beautiful stories after that point. Although the one you mentioned marked the starting point to such greatness IMHO.

Agreed 100%.
LSOTW was awesome though. :D

So I’m not really into X-Men. However, my hope is with this being a thing, the long run would be the eventuality of an Avengers crossover Transformer, or maybe even Star Wars.

Speaking of Mattel properties, I would really love to have a Barbie Transformers.
Just an Arcee remold that would convert into her iconic pink car would be nice. And add brushable hair for shizz and giggles.

Looks like an improvement over all the other collabs so far, Ectotron could easily have had his goggles filippable like this one. the little figures remind me of the 90s ones that came with sweets or something but not in a bad way. They missed out on using titan masters for the head though as it could easily be swappable to any other X-suit wearing X-man.

According to the Transformers' Facebook post, Target is the only place you can pre-order. It won't go live on Pulse until March.

Thanks, I didn't realize that from the initial post. I don't really check up on Target site much. Target does have pre-orders up for it, it appears to have the same pictures as the Hasbro pulse page.

I'd say he is being pretty generous actually. All Hail Megatron was really the only thing IDW ever put out I somewhat enjoyed reading, Dreamwave's ongoing was the last time I really enjoyed a TF Comic series as a whole.

Also looks like our initial guess of a SS Jetfire heavy retool was correct.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

I am very much interested in Four of the Botcon 2016 Customization Class toys (Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet), willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.
