Hasbro wrote:Dear Transformers fans,

We’re excited to share with you today some news about the future of the Transformers line, including another chance for fans to have their voices heard!

At New York Comic Con last month, Transformers fans were officially introduced to the new chapter in the Transformers Generations Prime Wars Trilogy, TITANS RETURN! The reaction to the new figures and the Titan Master system has been great, but some fans were wondering where the Titans in TITANS RETURN were. We can now officially confirm that TITAN SCALE FORTRESS MAXIMUS will be available in Fall 2016, the first Titan Scale figure in the TITANS RETURN line!

The first ... but not the last! We’re turning to our fans to help us determine which titanic character from Transformers history should be the next Titan Scale figure for Fall 2017. Starting Tuesday, November 24th on the official Transformers Facebook Page (Facebook.com/Transformers), fans will be able to cast a vote for which of the following fan-favorite characters should be added to the line:

- Scorponok
- Trypticon
- Omega Supreme

Starting today, fans will be treated to campaign-style posts featuring each of the three characters, leading up to Tuesday's official voting post, which will be active from 10:00 am PST to 12:00 am PST. Fans will be able to vote in the comments section.

Additionally, this will be the first Transformers Fan Vote that will include fans from China. Chinese fans will be voting on WeChat, and their vote totals will be joined with the Facebook vote totals to determine the winner, whose identity will be shared with fans in the near future.

In addition to the fan vote, we’re also happy to share with you some new figure images, including new Transformers: Robots in Disguise Mini-Cons, the hotly anticipated Transformers Generations: Titans Return Leader Class Power Master Optimus Prime, Transformers Generations: Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus Series Pack, and the brand new line of Transformers Generations Alt-Modes, featuring classic G1 styling and fun and innovative instant conversions!

Images and information can be found at the links above or below. Please let us know if you have any questions about the Fan Vote or the new figures.


For your convenience, here's a round-up of all of the news stories posted this morning. Please post comments about each subject in their respective topics. Thanks!

This is some huge news for Starscream fans. Rick Sellers of Rick Sellers Productions posted a news release on his Facebook page describing a new voice project for an electronic Transformers toy. While he doesn't mention Starscream by name, the description of "sniveling sycophant with delusions of glory!" is Starscream's M.O. Rick Sellers who will be voicing the toy goes on to say that the voice will be based on the original G1 voice actor Chris Latta. He also goes on to say that the toy will be based on the Robots in Disguise cartoon signalling that Starscream could possibly come to the series from his supposed demise in Transformers Prime.

He also uploaded a video to Facebook preview his take on Starscream based on G1. You can see that video here.

Richard Sellers Productions; 10-4-15 TRANSFORMERS HASBRO TOYS New Transformers project wrapped up! I'd received an e-mail from a Senior Designer at Hasbro Toys working on electronic Transformers toys.
They needed a character voice and original sound effects for a new toy! " Decepticons Attack!"
The project entailed creating a character voice for a Decepticon ( A G1 bad guy. If you're a Transformers fan, think "sniveling sycophant with delusions of glory!" Sound familiar? Rick Sellers will be voicing the character based on the original G1 voice actor.
The new talking electronic toy is based on Hasbro's latest iteration of the TF franchise, the very popular Transformers animated series"Robots in Disguise".The animated children's television show airing on The Cartoon Network.
We began the new project just days ago 9-23-15 at Creekside Audio Recording Studios,working with Wes McCraw the chief engineer and owner of Creekside Audio to record, edit, and create all the audio including the voice and sound effects for the toy.
Friday 10-2-15 marked the completion of the production. All the audio files have been sent off to Hasbro! I received a brief e-mail from Hasbro "The files sound GREAT!"
Thank you Sean, Wes,Lisa, Leo and Brando
And of course Chris Latta!

We've received a number of notifications from Seibertron.com members about an upcoming collaboration between Nintendo and Hasbro for a Transformers-themed Splatfest - part of the Splatoon game for Wii U consoles. Find out more in the official press release copied below, and choose your side if you take part in the event!

Nintendo and Hasbro Join Forces to Let TRANSFORMERS Fans Take Sides in Splatoon

Are you team Autobot or team Decepticon? Nintendo and Hasbro are joining forces to help you defend your robot allegiances in the Splatoon game for the Wii U console.


Splatoon features themed events called Splatfests that let players pick a preference, such as Autobots or Decepticons, and then compete against the opposing side in online battles. A Splatfest celebration lasts for 24 hours, during which players head into battle and try to rack up Turf War wins for their side. While the Splatfest is ongoing, in-game characters get to wear a special T-shirt that shows which Transformers team has their allegiance. The ink that each team shoots will also be customized to match the color scheme of the chosen side.

Once a Splatfest ends, the side with the most points will be awarded the most Super Sea Snails, items that will allow them to upgrade their gear in the game. The Transformers-themed Splatfest event is scheduled to run starting at 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 28 through 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 29 and is open to all Wii U owners who have Splatoon and an Internet connection.

Splatoon, which is exclusive to Wii U, represents Nintendo’s take on the action-shooter genre. Characters called Inklings can transform into squids as they attempt to cover the play area with their team’s colorful ink and splat opponents. Using an array of inventive weapons, players cover the playing surface with as much of their team’s colorful ink as possible before time runs out. On Aug. 5, a free software update in Splatoon brought a large amount of new content to the game, including two new matchmaking modes, new weapon types, an increase to the game’s level cap and more than 40 pieces of new gear.
