We've received a number of notifications from the Seibertron.com community pointing out how Jazz, one of the recent Transformers Power of the Primes deluxe figures - spotted early at US retail - has a surprising Cybertronian print underneath the Autobot logo. The users who first found it on Twitter - you can find a good report on this over at TFormers, as ExVee was the first to identify it - deciphered it to the slogan of the US presidential campaign: MAGA, or "Make America Great Again".

Transformers News: Hasbro Responds to Transformers Power of the Primes Jazz Design Error


While there has been speculation as to what happened, and what it might actually mean (Make Autobots Great Again? My Alternate Mode is Also (a car)?), io9 reached out to Hasbro for an explanation as to whether this was intentional, and received the following response:

It was brought to our attention that a graphic appears on one of our Transformers figures that, when translated from Cybertonian letters to English, spells out MAGA. We investigated the issue, and discovered that one of our vendors inserted this as part of the design without authorization. We are addressing this with the vendor.

We do not intend for our products to carry political messages, and apologize to anyone who was offended by this message.


It seems, if we go by Hasbro's statement, that this was not Hasbro's doing, but that something happened between the final designs being approved and the production of the figure starting. We do not know at this time whether there will be a revised run of the figure, or if the detail will remain on the figure for the rest of the line.

We encourage any civil political discussion to take place in this other thread, and keep the responses to this story specifically about the toy and the Power of the Primes toyline.

Anyone else want some popcorn? It will be extra salty...


But anyways while it is unfortunate and probably intentional it's honestly up to interpretation since it doesn't have to stand for that slogan but something else like "Make Autobots Great Again" even if it was the intention we can change that intention to something else.

I strongly dislike the idea of combining Dinobots and also am totally bummed how derpy Grimlock looks in alt mode. Those legs and tiny ass toes just look RIDICULOUS! Along with that does his head in combined mode actually protrude straight out from his chest like that, it doesn't fold down??
I mean come on.....

My question is 'Who thought they could do this and get away with?'

If there is a language created by nerds and you encode something in that language, why do you think that nerds aren't going to unencode it? At least try to be deflect a little and break it up by putting M on Jazz, A on Prime, G on Rodimus, and A on Grimlock. Then you can pass it off as "Oh I just looked up random letters to print on them."

There were many African Americans who voted for Trump and wear MAGA hats. For all we know, Scatman Crothers could have been one of those people if he were alive today. Nothing in politics is ever that black and white (no pun intended).

So this. While the original intended meaning (whatever it is) may have meant no harm, it's always the negative unrelated predecessor of that acronym that will be stuck to it forever. That's the sad reality of things, but kudos to Hasbro for responding in such a manner, plus offering a possible explanation of what has happened.

ARGH!!!!!!
This is why we can't have nice things anymore.........
Oh and I am sorry I am a straight white man and not allowed to have an opinion on this matter.......better get your pitchforks ready cause I dared to speak up against the NEW WORLD ORDER!!!!!
Oh and to all the dumb asses out there, HASBRO is passing the buck, they knew and you would be fools to believe they didn't.

Exactly. I was just thinking that Reprolabels could capitalize on this with a whole sheet of optional funny stickers to place over it...but that might just cause another unnecessary slag-storm.

Can we all at least agree that this easter egg is just plain lame, in that it'll seem horribly dated in a few years? Sort of like when Animaniacs made political jokes?

In their apology, hasbro says its a vendor, meaning its a free lancing artist who they pay per design, not an actual employee. So there isnt any firing needed, they can simply just no longer solicit that person's service.

From the first moment fans saw the upcoming Transformers Power of the Primes Voyager Starscream, there was already talk of it becoming a torso, even though Hasbro never showed it at any of the events they brought the toy too. We then learnt that sure enough, all voyagers in the Power of the Primes line would become torsos to interact with the deluxe limbs, as was the case with Combiner Wars. We finally got a hint at Starscream's torso mode on the side of his box and on small leaked images but we never had a good look at it, until now. Kevin Liu made a youtube video for Power of the Primes Dreadwind and since he has all the wave 1 toys (these may be given by Hasbro promotionally, as hinted with the watermark in his videos), he showed how it combines with Voyager Starscream. So with no fanfare whatsoever he just shows how the connections work between voyager and deluxe while showing Voyager Starscream in torso mode for the first time. He has his crowned look, making him basically a combiner version of himself. The extra flared kibble at the sides of his nosecone gives him the appearance of his wider movie look. We also see the presence of stickers all across those altmode pieces repurposed for the torso mode. Let us know what you think of this mode and if you are getting this toy once it reaches retail

I have to say... I... like it, the bot mode isn't the greatest, but I dig the combined mode, using the ever solid silverbolt method of turning bulky arms into perfect legs already sets him above a lot of other torso's in my eye's. I also find it kinda funny how fan modes of silverbolt eventually turned into hungurr and digibashes of galvatron turned into a starscream combiner... maybe hasbro pays more attention to our random ideas than we thought?

Wow, that's a lot of paint on Starscream's head!

Image

I'm pretty sure the figure has no plastic in any of those colors so that means it's using black, silver, gold, pink, and maybe red for the eyes if they aren't also pink. Most transformers figures are limited to up to three paint colors total, and here Screamer has four or five just on his head. That's pretty impressive.

If they have to use stickers I really wish they'd stop using foil stickers, I think most figures would have looked better with regular matte stickers. Foil stickers only look good on already chromed or metallic painted parts or when they're used in place of chrome in specific spaces (like TR Voyager Prime's tanker).

I have a feeling Hasbro may not be too eager to do another Skywarp right now, after the Combiner Wars one is still warming shelves two toy lines later. For some reason, Skywarps are rarely good sellers. On a side note, I appreciate some good old fashioned fan service as much as the next person, but after many nods to Starscream's crown in recent years, I feel it's becoming a bit too cliche.

Anyone else notice that Dreadwind's wing transformation placing them on his legs is just like what we saw on Classics Ramjet and Dirge? This mold also already has the Conehead asigned to it if they kept it with the retool. Wouldn't surprise me if they had extra wings to go with this mold.

I can already sense TT licking their chops for a seeker combiner; btw, dreadwing doesn't share a mold with thrust, but the alternative aerialbot, due to sharing the pivoting shoulder struts - but, he does have an angled cut-out for a cone head :-?

They have most of the same leg parts and pelvis, and I think the same arms up to the shoulders. If they can mix parts, like Thrust's head and maybe his shoulders mixed with Dreadwind's other parts and new wings and maybe a cockpit in the combiner peg we could have some decent Coneheads. G1 Thrust could be a little tricky, would probably have to use the entirety of the Air Raid mold's legs like Armada Thrust, but a new back and wings for G1 accuracy. That would also give us an option for a more accurate Seeker mold to go with the existing head mold used on UW and SG Starscream.

Anyone else see a new Seeker mold out of Swoop? Not sure what you'd do with the legs in jet mode, but in robot mode you've got the cockpit and some Combiner Wars intakes on his upper shoulders. Plus Swoop's head looks very similar (not exact) to Starscream's if you take away his headfin. It even has the side intakes on his head!

My reaction to Starscream's torso: :shock: :-? >:oP
My reaction to MAGA Jazz: :shock: :???: :lol: 8-}

Starscream is not only the chunkiest voyager in years, but his torso mode looks like some sort of shiny ape... hulk... Thing. Like if RotF Starscream chose sticker-bling instead of tattoos. I'm happy that some others here like it, but the cockpit, wings, and random kibble do not a torso make for me. That said, we all knew more-or-less how this torso would look from the Elita-One leak. His face looks a lot more statuesque than starscream's usual features, reminds me of the face on Legends Giga. Do like the crown, though! Overall, Starscream seems a lot like his Wave-mate Grimlock: every mode suffers for the rest and none are really great.

The MAGA Jazz thing... oh boy! 8-} I wasn't going to touch PotP Jazz before, but this and the potential of a running change make him a lot more interesting, if only as a crazy moment in TF history. That said, it may not be a good kind of crazy. The conflict and hatred that arises whenever politics touch this board gives me pause.

Unlike a lot of people here, I find this political stuff endlessly amusing (though I probably shouldn't)... and I'm already planning to display PotP Jazz with TR Sentinel and generations Jhiaxus. :HEADHURTS:

!Rant inbound! I understand this is sensitive ground, but could you argue that Jazz is one of the most multi-cultural autobots ever? He had an African-American VA with some memorable mannerisms, a Japanese-designed toy that turned into a German racecar, became a cyber-ninja in Animated with nods to eastern fighting styles and spirituality, and did it all while sporting white, blue, and red - the colors of many countries' flags. Add to that his white-ish-but-may-have-been-sculpted-to-be-Japanese pretender shell and you have one cross-country concoction of a character! :D

Fellow Seibertronian Tranzilla e-mailed us some exciting insider information that will help you find the highly anticipated Transformers Power of the Primes Wave 1 products. Tranzilla was able to confirm the Target DPCI numbers for each class size as well as Target's initial pricing. As you have probably already heard, the Deluxe Class figures have already been showing up in Target stores around the US. Here's the information that he shared with us.

Tranzilla wrote:Located Slash, Skrapnel, Beachcomber, and Windcharger at the Target in Ellicott City, MD tonight. Also was able to confirm DPCIs for the upcoming releases. They are:

087-06-5845 Prime Masters $4.99
087-06-5849 Legends Class $9.99
087-06-5863 Deluxe Class $16.99
087-06-5868 Voyager Class $24.99
087-06-6020 Leader Class $44.99


Another user on Twitter, @Frerebear, posted an image of the two Legends Class Dinobot Slash figure that was found at a Target store in Ellicott City, Maryland.

You can use a website resource such as Brickseek to see if your local Target store(s) has these products in back. If you can't find them in the toy section, just ask a friendly Target employee to help you out. Be sure to be nice to them, because they are doing you a favor and it's possible that they might not be able to pull figures from the back even if they do have them in stock.

If you find them in stock somewhere, please make sure to let other Transformers fans know by sharing your sightings in our Sightings Section and our Sightings forum. Happy hunting!

I don't think Hasbro has ever recalled a Transformers toy before, which is pretty amazing after 33+ years. It's highly unlikely that they'd recall it because it says MAGA in Cybertronian. That'd just be silly.

Well, if there ever was a first, it would certainly be in the heated american political climate of 2017 over Hasbro wanting to distance themselves from any potential implication of association with the Trump administration. People have freaked out over far less, unfortunately. This could very much end one for the history books of the franchise, as silly as it may be.

But what do I know of 'murrican politics? I ride mooses up rivers of maple syrup. :HEADHURTS:

One really can't tell another person what they should or shouldn't be offended by seeing how people appear to have a wide variety of levels of what the are willing to tolerate in behavior in other people.

And the irony of the robot chosen for this particular prank can't be just ignored either. Whoever the designer was who did this, clearly knew exactly what they were doing in their attempt to be clever. This should cost that designer his job, because it's going to cost Hasbro one way or another either in bad publicity (which it's getting now), to production cost if they decide to recall their Jazzes, or in the cost of having to do a second run wave and have the decos changed, because there's no way, now that they've acknowledged it is what it is, they are going to be able to just produce more without taking action.

Not sure what you'd do with the legs in jet mode, but in robot mode you've got the cockpit and some Combiner Wars intakes on his upper shoulders. Plus Swoop's head looks very similar (not exact) to Starscream's if you take away his headfin. It even has the side intakes on his head!

The legs are able to fold like Rook, so a seeker retool is in no way out of the question. cough Takara cough


And here I thought Swoop is being retooled into Cutthroat and Wildfly. Silly me...

I hope that whoever did that to Jazz gets fired. To put that sort of slogan on a character that is traditionally voiced by an African American is all sorts of messed up.

There were many African Americans who voted for Trump and wear MAGA hats. For all we know, Scatman Crothers could have been one of those people if he were alive today. Nothing in politics is ever that black and white (no pun intended).


Nah, man. Nah. >:oP
