Motto: "All my 6 nipples are tingling."
Weapon: Self-Propelled Photon Cannon
IVe enjoyed combiner wars and even more son Titans return so I'm pretty sad they're ending it. There were a few autobot targetmasters I'd have liked them release and perhaps a new arcee.

Curious to see the new subline but I'm not overly excited. New subline... new prime and bumblebees?
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

Considering Arcee was one of the contenders for the power of the primes vote, I wouldn't be surprised if they are planning to release a new toy for her. Most likely something akin to how she looks in the comic rather than the more G1-esque design she got in the thrilling 30 line. I think a new Optimus goes without saying, although maybe it will be an Optimus that's not a pre-tool? Fingers crossed.

San Diego Comic Con 2017 Saturday Schedule: Cartoons with Transformers Rescue Bots & Beast Wars

Postby Va'al » Sun Jul 09, 2017 1:44 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Some more updates from the official site for San Diego Comic Con 2017, featuring the Transformers-related events taking place during Friday and Saturday - or rather just [url]Saturday[/url] for now, as nothing is listed for the second day of the con: creators from animated shows discussing how to create a cartoon series, featuring Nicole Dubuc (Rescue Bots) and Craig Miller (Beast Wars)! Check out more info below.

Let's Create A Cartoon Series
Experienced animation show creators, including Dean Stefan (Matchbox Big Rig Buddies, Quack Pack), Craig Miller (Curious George, Beast Wars: Transformers), Nicole Dubuc (Young Justice, Transformers: Rescue Bots), and Andrew Robinson (Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters, Young Justice), take suggestions called out by people in the audience, first for a genre, then for a main character, then other characters to add, then the world it takes place in. This is a combination of actual show creation and a sort of improv game. It's a take on how a show is created-all the elements you must consider, such as what age group it's for, why the idea of it being about this or that would be too expensive, or why it can't take place on water if it's CGI.

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
As it's Sunday still in some timezones, we also have the latest San Diego Comic Con 2017 schedule update, with their Sunday program! Transformers only feature in two more panels on the third day of the con, with Robots in Disguise (2001) voice of Optimus Prime, and many more, Neil Kaplan joining a panel of voice actors, plus a more specific open meeting for comics artists.

Check it out below, and keep your optics on Seibertron.com for SDCC coverage in a couple of weeks!

Cartoon Voices II
With the smash-hit success of yesterday's Cartoon Voices I panel, there's no choice but to do another one-with different but equally talented actors from the world of animation voicing. Once again, moderator Mark Evanier has assembled an all-star dais that will include Neil Kaplan (Transformers, Voltron), Nickie Bryar (Family Guy, American Dad!), Bob Joles (Puss in Boots, SpongeBob SquarePants), Debra Wilson (MADtv, Family Guy), Chuck McCann (Fantastic Four, DuckTales), and probably someone else.
