We have more news from San Diego Comic Con 2015 via site owner Seibertron! During the Hasbro Breakfast Press event, attendees were given, for free four types of Pez sweet dispensers - you know, from way back when Pez dispensers were a thing! Check out some images from the gallery below.

In slightly more up to date news, we also have a full new gallery of Transformers Robots in Disguise products on display at the Hasbro booth, featuring the usual suspects... and Megatronus in his new Legion class incarnation, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in their powered up modes, and a couple more interesting tidbots - check them out below, and click on any image for the full gallery!

Thanks again to Seibertron, live from San Diego Comic Con, we can bring you all the updates revealed at the Hasbro Transformers panel at the event - of which we already saw a glimpse with the Breakfast Press event and Preview Night stories. Read on below to see what's in store for giant transforming robot fans!

Transformers Combiner Wars
Hasbro showed a general Combiner Wars trailer that used clips from Devastation game and IDW motion comics.

Combiner Wars idea originated with FOC Bruticus.
Devastator being released in DeNA Battle Tactics

Transformers Devastation to be released on October 6th, 2015.

Something starts to "cyberform" parts of Earth, humans don't like that, Autobots head to city to investigate cyberforming, points to Megatron. Hasbro stressed the importance of having character arc, Optimus Prime has emotional struggle in game, lots of easter eggs for fans!
Peter Cullen as Optimus, Frank Welker as Megatron, Greg Berger as Grimlock. Greg showed up on panel and did some Grimlock voices, too.

Combiner Wars Products
One pack sets .... COMBINER WARS SERIES PACK
G2 SUPERION - As we have already seen earlier.
G2 MENASOR
Victorion - Also seen earlier, right here.
Also revealed was Scattershot, who forms torso for Betatron - another name change from Hasbro, unfortunately.

Exclusives

Platinum Blaster and Perceptor set - Exclusive to Target
Platinum Trypticon - Exclusive to Target

Masterpiece Bluestreak - Exclusive to TRU
Masterpiece Starscream - Exclusive to TRU, available 10/1


No plans for Beast combiners yet, nor are there any for Dinobots.

And what about Deluxe Groove, you might ask? A clear, non-committal 'we'll see'.


Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for presentation images arriving shortly, too!

Whatever happened to Hasbro's MP Sideswipe that was announced two BotCons ago?

no technobots, vicky looks like hot garbage, just so much disappointment.

Presumably vaporware at this point. Speculation: perhaps a licensing issue?

I think a lot of this news is cool, but not mind blowing. Scattershot is bad, I'm not ok with a low effort retool on that one.

Excellent news about the G1 reissue availability though. Would love more detail on MP Starscream's deco.

Finally, after this panel, I really do now think the "Titan Wars" backdrop seen at Botcon was a massive screw up on someone's part, and it wasn't supposed to be seen yet, or even worse, was leftover from a canceled concept.

It's a shame that nothing was said about Titan Wars, not even a silhouette of an upcoming figure. All they've revealed are three box-sets of bad-looking repaints and one bad-looking retool. It looks like Hasbro really did reveal all the good stuff at BotCon... :BOOM:

So people are aware, Seibertron is currently back taking photos at the Hasbro booth area.
There may be more, better images of products coming soon!

While it's awesome that Generation 2 Combiners sets are happening, it's not for me. More money saved for Bruticus!

Computron's happening! Just... not the way I envisioned it. With the overall theme of the line is massive retoolings, kinda expected Scattorshot to be a Silverbolt retool, but... did they not retool Superion's head to better match Computron's? Really? Also, I totally get not having the name to a character anymore and having to give them a different name, but surely they could've done better than "Betatron"?

Also, no Technobot limbs? Surely they're being made as well? If not... incredibly massive missed opportunity.

Masterpiece Starscream, yay! I'd be more excited for this had I not already gotten the Hasbro Asia release exactly a year ago. :BANG_HEAD: Is there any confirmation about him coming with coronation gear?

As I said in Victorion's thread, I'm kinda into her, but not really. I'm going to get her, but it's going to be for that kickass sword for this custom idea I have, and as a display buddy for Windblade.

And with that said... what ever happened to Titan Wars?

That's what I want to know! :BANG_HEAD:

I'm genuinely confused-why is 'Betatron' Scattershot and the 4 autobots that make Optimus Maximus??

Where are the other technobots? And why is every combiner re-tools? I get they need to get mileage out of these molds, but they took it too far fast! Blast-Off and Scattershot deserve new molds-and they have to have made enough money to achieve this by now. Something really awesome has gone bad fast, I feel...

Ok, I finally have something bad to say about Victorion. Those individual bot names are pretty bad and very awkward to say. Luckily I don't care about things like that and will call them whatever I want when I get them. I wonder though, do they have a group name yet? Are they the Victoribots or the Toribots or perhaps the Vicibots maybe even the Fandobots?

I think we just need to wait a bit before we all start going too crazy about the rest of the Technobots not being shown yet. Hasbro has a habit of showing what the toys can do rather than be 100% accurate as to what it's "supposed" to look like. Remember how Superion had Dragstrip in the early photo's and how Ultra Prime did as well. Oh no! Betatron is being shown with what we know of as Optimus Maximus' team. So what? They still have time to make the rest. Maybe they'll be in wave three of next year and they don't have anything to show for that far in advance. Since they didn't want to have just one voyager per wave, maybe they're releasing Scattorshot earlier than the rest of the Technobots. Wave two of the voyagers and deluxes should be the Combaticons with either Sky Lynx or Scattorshot as the other voyager or maybe even both versions of Onslaught packed together. Wave 3 is really only starting to show up in stores now so we have almost a full year before they reveal what the third wave of deluxes will be for next year.

Guys, don't forget: with Victorion confirmed as a set, we possibly still have two waves after the Sky Reign bots. No way will Hasbro cheap out on this, especially with TakaraTomy wanting to release its own version!

Funny thing, in Combiner War the Team Names are never mentioned and are probably trivial at this point, when everyone can possibly combine. :)

Well this SDCC has been a huge disappointment. Just a big pile of repaints and no real new announcements. Victorion will probably look better in molded plastic rather than thick, glossy paint. The G2 repaints are nice, but I'm guessing they'll be exclusives somewhere. Scattershot is total garbage and appears to be all alone just like Cyclonus.

What's more disappointing is what they aren't doing. No beasts, no mention of Titan Wars, no new MPs (will try to get Starscream, though), and no Groove.

At least we had a good showing at BotCon.

But does Scattorshot still have the ability to be mistransformed hilariously? If you don't know what I'm talking about, use google.

Also, Bruticus, Sky Lynx and G2 Superion all look amazing.

No, the nosecone flips upwards for Scattershot, but since the Silverbolt mold makes a 180 when in torso mode...

O grow up :lol:

It probably deends on how the gun attaches to the nosecone. My guess is tht it uses the molded in wheel on the shield anx not an attached kickstand for thevfron landing gear, and without that, you cant attach the gun to the landing gear to "position". You might be able to do it by partially folding the nosedown, but then he's as long out the back as he is the out the front... yeah I'm gonna leave it at that.

Could someone pst the Victorion names? I'm on a phone and flipping through the gallery is not easy.

And I really want a G2 Defensor now for that dark blue Blades.

I think that betatron is hasbro's way of teasing computron before the technobot limbs show up. I mean the limbs they showcased are already in a different combiner, it would make no sense!

leader hotspot retool = pyra magma
helicopter sisters = storm clash and skyburst
breakdown retool = jumpstream
dead end retool = dust-up
groove retool = rust dust :SICK:

Hope this helps
