Here's a piece of speculation for you all. As you might have noticed, Hasbro had a big presence at the New York Toy Fair this weekend, and brought several reveals for this year's lines of toys, from The Last Knight to Robots in Disguise to Titans Return (all of our coverage can be found here and the related galleries here!) - now, they have tweeted a general thank you message to close off the event, reminding fans that their next stop is Providence, Rhode Island in September 2017, for HASCON.
The odd part? San Diego Comic Con, a staple of the entertainment media industries, is taking place in July. Is the message just a slip of the fingers, or is Hasbro actually not going to be taking part at SDCC? We have no further information at the moment, and this post is merely rumouring and overthinking, but what you do make of the possibility? Do you think we're reading this correctly?
Along with all the Wonderfest news, including the Transformers: The Last Knight line being announced and revealed by Takara Tomy - as reported here - we also have via Snakas blog a piece of news that may otherwise have gone unnoticed: is it possible the next Masterpiece figure, after Optimus Primal and Cheetor, will be Dinobot? (Very probably yes indeed.) Check out the image below, and discuss away in the Energon Pub!
A web series from Russia called Transformers: Portal has been running since September 2016. It has a comic book feel while including animation and sound to tell its story. From what we can see it appears that portals may play a role in integrating the two series for a crossover.
"The creator is Marvelous Group marketing agency, which works with Hasbro on Transformers, Play-Doh, Nerf and other brands." Explains TFW2005 user, Arvegtor. "According to what I know, Hasbro likes it enough to order the next project in a similar format. The project’s website is “transformers-portal.ru”, the official vkontakte page is also a part of the picture (most of the projects before only used the vk page and they can still be found there)."
This video is in Russian but still worth checking out to see some of our favorite characters from Titans Return and Robots in Disguise. Even if you do not speak Russian the artwork is easy to appreciate. Maybe we will get to see this series in other countries sometime soon.
Via fellow Seibertronian Emerje, and the same source as the Transformers: The Last Knight Megatron leaks (though probably not the actual source..), we have what is purported to be the first look at the Hasbro Transformers display at New York Toy Fair!
The image is small, grainy and not entirely useful, though we can see a Grimlock, an Optimus Prime both in robot mode; a truck mode Optimus, and another tank/truck vehicle (perhaps Hound or Onslaught?); a Bumblebee mask on the left; the three headed dragon at the very back. Given the nature of the image, it is very likely that the massive dragon is in fact art or a prop, and not a toy in itself, but feel free to speculate on what might show up this weekend in the Last Knight thread or below!
Yes, we are well aware that there already exists a Tokyo Toy Show Exclusive LG EX Black Convoy, and you can see his gallery here. However, that was the 2015 Tokyo Toy Show Exclusive LG EX Black Convoy and now we have word of a new one for the 2017 Tokyo Toy Show. This news comes to us from an e-mail [Wing_Saber-X] from the TFW boards got from a Malaysian store called Toonshoppe. Here is his mesage followed by the e-mail:
Hello fellow Transfans!
Just thought I'd share exciting news about a possible Tokyo Toy Exclusive Legends Black Convoy listing I received from my local toy supplier. Its supposed to retail at ¥5,600 to be avaliable for release at the end of June 2017. Ive included a screenshot of the email sent as proof.
While we have no images, smart money is on this being Japan's release of the Titans Return Voyager Optimus Prime toy in Black Convoy colours (red, black and teal). As with Armada Megatron, this will probably be the only way to get the Takara version of the mold as Optimus since only Octane would be the wide release of that mold from Takara.
It has been a long time we have heard anything regarding this year's version of the Combiner Wars boxsets like Victorion and the G2 combiners. The rumours are that we are getting two sets this year, with redecos of Titans Return molds with each set having a leader, voyager, 2-3 deluxes and a titan master. This is where Tidal Wave, Nautica, and the clones are supposed to show up. Their contents are still rumours, which will hopefully be confirmed this saturday, but their existence is now fact.
The first Titans Return gift set, the Speed Pack, has been found on a Toysrus computer. We even have the listing, price and code. The set is listed as EX-Generations SRS Pack 1 Speed. The Canadian SKU is 290858 and it is listed at 149.99 CAN, which is the same inflated over compensating exchange rate price the Combiner Wars boxsets. So this also confirms that these Titans Return sets will be the same price point as the Combiner Wars ones, at around $ 100 USD. The fact that this is listed at Pack 1 definitely hints to there being more packs, as rumoured. Do any of you have any idea as to what the SRS might mean? Are you ready for more redecos? Let us know in the comments!
It looks like we have more support to the IMDB rumour about the identity of The Maker in the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie - out this June with Paramount Pictures - thanks to the voice actor profile of Gemma Chan at SueTerryVoices.com. According to the agency, Chan is indeed involved in the fifth Michael Bay film, and does lend her talents to a character with a very familiar name - after a fashion.
Check out more about this just a couple of lines below, as we attempt to avoid spoilers on the front page!
Fellow Seibertronian Autobot N has found some probable spoilers for the next wave of deluxes as part of Titans Return. The owner of Canadian collectibles site Canucktables, Hoffman, has heard from his distributor of the next wave of figures. Now please remember that distributers are not Hasbro and do not know all the facts so there can always be something lost in the translation (like when a distributer said there would be an MP Tank Megatron after misinterpreting the image of Legends Tank Megatron shaking MP 10's hand). Here are Hoffman's quote below for you to interpret as you wish:
Hoffman wrote:I run a toy store an TFs are a small part of what we sell. This info came from a solicitation from a distributor. I was told the info was ok to share, however with how strict Hasbro has been with their solicitations, I'm still wary about how much info I should divulge.
Hoffman wrote:I have no idea if this info came out and got buried in speculation threads or something, but I have some info on the next wave of TR Deluxes.
The new figures in this wave are Misfire, Twintwist, and Windblade. All retools.
The other figure listed in the assortment is Wolfwire. No packout details.
Wolfwire being rereleased makes sense since he is the only figure from the first 2 waves to not be rereleased yet. Let us know what you think! We will see it this is all true next week at Toy Fair 2016!
In any case, for those keeping track, this is how Wave 5 is shaping up to be:
So this is Wave 5 then and what they will show us at Toyfair:
Forewarning, all of the following is a potential spoiler, but is to be treated at this moment as a rumor with several grains of salt.
We have big news for you today in regard to The Last Knight in the form of a rumored list from IMDB (hence the grains of salt) of actors and voice actors set to appear in the new film. Among the list is a gigantic spoiler for the movie: the name and voice of the Creator, as heard in the Super Bowl trailer! Also spoilerish are some unexpected potential returning characters!
With the list, we are also able to tell you (unspoilerishly) that all the previous voices of Age of Extinction characters will remain (the 4 Autobots besides Bumblebee, along with Megatron), with Jess Harnell reprising his role as Barricade from the 2007 movie.
We will give you space below to leave before you potentially spoil anything for yourself with regards to names and voice actors, but if you dare, read on below!

Big news, folks! Thanks to Facebook user Dallas Mace, we have a potential leak of an upcoming Titans Return deluxe figure: Shockwave! Now, this is still just a rumor, but as some Peg Tags at a North Carolina Walmart have revealed, we have a more than slight indication that a Deluxe Shockwave is in our future. Check out the provided photographic evidence!
UPDATE: Fellow Seibertronian jamesbenjamin points out that the barcode seen on the tag corresponds to that of Fall of Cybertron deluxe Shockwave from years ago, as seen below.
We'd suggest diving into your bag of salt once more, and just consider this a misnamed placeholder for a new deluxe figure from the Titans Return line, though not the purple Decepticon commander after all.
This might seem a little *ahem*illogical, however, seeing as he just got a legend-class toy in the Combiner Wars toyline, but hey, at one time during CW we had two different sized versions of Skywarp on the shelves at the same time, so anything can happen!
Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers News and Rumors!
