Congrats to Susan and Lorenzo! They've both contributed to this franchise so much that it's cool to have them stick with us for such a long time! And just to be on a tangent, grrr those mistransformed Masterpieces just make me want to steal them and Keep it together, Surge.

This year's fan favorites have been determined. The favorite Transformers character this year is Galvatron, while Barricade has won the Favorite Transformers Movie character category. Lastly, Trypticon has won the Toy of the Year award. It has been a good year for Decepticons!

Will that Arcee be available at retail or is it an exclusive?

It's early access at Hascon, but it will later see wider distribution... somehow somewhere.

But that was last year.

Not wide retail. It is said to later be available as a retailer exclusive, so just TRU, or BBTS, or maybe just HTS.

Uhhhhhhg. And there goes my hope of getting it, at least at a price I'd be willing to pay :lol: . Ah well, best wishes to those that do get and enjoy it! It looks like a pretty nice piece of plastic, if I do say so myself.

Rated X I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say hope you're ok. I did something horrible folks, something you'll probably see the results of by the end of the week.

We've shown you the plaques and trophies for the Transformers Hall of Fame induction ceremonies for Susan Blu and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (see it here!) which took place at Hascon 2017 last night during the VIP dinner panel with Frank Welker and Peter Cullen - but why not pretend you were there in person, by taking a look at a video recording of the whole thing? Check it out below!

Yo Ryan,

Its your old pal X riding out hurricane Irma and boy is she wet lol! Since im trapped inside and can use some entertainment, maybe you can offer us some tibits about non Transformers stuff at Hascon for s**t and giggles...

Did Dude perfect splash the crowd with supersoakers?

Did chewbacca mom eat 10 hot dogs during her pannel?

Did you hear the crickets chirping at the duengons and dragons display?

And what horrifying things did fans engage in at the MLP extravaganza?

Post some videos, share some stories, make us laugh ! Enquiring minds want to know...

Yeah, that's pretty poor. I hope there was an audible sound of all the eyes rolling.

Especially since the Predacons are said to be all voyagers.

Congratulations to Susan Blu indeed. Doesn't she do a lot of directing of voice actors on the more recent shows?

There's far too much positivity about these figures. Allow me to counter.

I know this is the only way we'll ever get The Thirteen from Hasbro, but I'm still disappointed they're only Titan Masters. I'm hoping a third party will have a shot at them, maybe incorporate a compartment for the official figures to keep to gimmick alive.

Optimus Prime's vehicle mode isn't great, but I like the figure overall, just not sure I have a desire for it.

As for the Dinobots; oh, dear. I get that the clear plastic armour is a homage to G1, but using it on Snarl and Sludge's back legs is poor. Perhaps Sludge references his fate in FoC, having lost his legs and so now he has ghost legs. Swoop's alright, but the rest look a little cheap. The combined mode doesn't excite me either. The proportions are giving me flashbacks to FoC Bruticus. That's not only killed it for me, but inspired me to get a third party Dino-combiner.

So at the Prime Wars trilogy panel Hasbro showed some early concept art for Leader Prima and Megatronus, both of which look like they're made from the Titan Return Overlord mould:

Here's a link to every picture shown: http://tformers.com/update-leader-prima ... /news.html

But it was said at the panel that neither figure will be happening at any point, because they were deemed "too obscure to release in the toyline by Hasbro".


......."Too obscure"..............


Even though Megatronus was a major villain in Robots in Disguise recently. And he was in one of the Michael Bay films (albeit under his old name). And the Generations toyline recently featured the incredibly obscure Lione and Shuffler. And Power of the Primes is a toyline centered around Primes.... :BANG_HEAD:

Just so people are aware, we do have our own imagery of the same panel, just coming later.

Video recordings need uploading and rendering, and screencaps need to be made. :)
