The major news from the Hasbro Investor day webcall, which took place today in Burbank rather than Rhode Island, and to which we were able to listen once it was over, has revealed the next animated project (the one being developed by Boulder Media, alongside Rescue Bots Academy) that will follow Transformers: Robots in Disguise - Transformers: Cyberverse!

Divided into chapters - Chapter One and Chapter Two were mentioned, airing in 2018 and 2019 respectively - it will serve as a prequel of sorts, focusing on the characters and the Transformers mythology from a remastered version of Generation One (as seen many times before, but most recently in the Busy Book images) that will possibly lead into the animated feature (also confirmed in the webcall, and which we first reported on here). Hasbro have also just uploaded the slides used during the call, so we have images to share with you too!

Q&A

Where is Titans Return Arcee? Hold tight, something might happen in Power of the Primes.

Will Masterpiece Dinobot see US release? Stay tuned.

Are we ever going to get a Bludgeon figure, in Decoy Suit style? Stay tuned.

Which is your favourite toy (kid question)? John: Cogman and Trypticon, I feed him every day. Ben: Leader Megatron.

Any plans for Decepticons in Masterpiece Movie Line? Great things in store, good reception of the line.

No plans for movie line exclusive repaints, like SDCC 2016 Dinobot set.

Any plans for classic Combiners, like Predaking, or IDW characters? Stay tuned, we know they're popular. No more plans for Nautica right now, we're aware of stories and interest.

What is planned for that Power of the Primes Starscream mold? Many, many things in store.

Response to QA issues with Trypticon, and limited distribution of the Titans Return boxsets? May have been isolated incidents, but it has been reported and it is being looked into right now. Warden has been made to do the splits. Same is being done for latter, with possible reissues down the line, but nothing confirmed.
