Dinobot Combiners? Come to the panel tomorrow
Recon Ravage stickers only for that promotion
Sounds like you should buy the TFA toys that you want from Japan but Hasbro says they still have intention to release them over time.
Robot Heroes done for the time being
Nothing really noteworthy has come out of the Q&A

Wow really exicted to see images of Highbrow and the HA SideSwipe figure. It looks to be an awesome time indeed.

Yeah, I'd love it if Highbrow was a remake of the G1 Headmaster.

Sucks that there are so many repaints in the PCC line, especially since it looks like some of the 2 packs guys will become some of the 5 pack guys and vice versa.

New Sideswipe sounds pretty cool, weird how they paired him up with Mikaela. HA Jazz is obvsiously going to be great. Mostly good news there as well as some great new figures.

You can take still frame pics but no audio or video recording devices are allowed..Most of the stuff the show is on a slide projector, noting physical to see.

I was sick today so i took today off from the con but i'll be back tommorow for sure :)

Dinobot combiners? Could be interesting as long as they are not as lame as the energon grimlock and swoop and definately not a repaint either.

Knowing Hasbro, they're probably part of a future wave of PCC's. Which would be very interesting to see to say the least. Dinosaur combiners were planned, back in G1; one as an adversary for Piranacon, with a T-Rex, Ankylosaurus, Pterodactyl, Dimetrodon and Styracosaurus, and another with just a T-Rex, Stegosaurus and Pterodactyl. Both never came to pass however.

If anybody needs an idea what Blurr's head will look like: Panel of Spotlight: Blurr, on TFWiki

That sounds like those could've been awesome. Even though the individual dinos didn't have robot modes, magmatron is the ultimate dino combiner. He is a really awesome fig and my favorite.

The closest G1 Dinosaur combiner we'll get is Nekketsu Gattai Go-Zaurer, from Tomy's Eldoran series. It's similar to a Brave series robot (in fact, some fans put Brave and Eldoran together with the Takara-Tomy merger), except the individual components don't have robot modes. Here's some links to review of the toys:

Nekketsu Gattai Go-Zaurer, on CollectionDX (Korean release)
Nekketsu Shinka Granzaurer, on CollectionDX

Thank you, go-saurer looks really sweet, might have to pick it up one of these days to go with the other braves that I have. Know any video reviews? I couldn't find any.

This actually makes me very happy - I'd really hoped I'd be able to get the core scout class component to the Aerialbot combiner (and maybe some of the others) without having to pay an extra $10 on those crappy legends limbs (I much prefer the minicons in the two packs).

They'll be repainted, of course, but it was the mold I liked.

A shame we'll have to wait for SDCC to get pics.

Edit: Or an extra $20 if the "list price" on TRU's website is to be believed!

So absoloutely nothing new from that panel. The bulk of those figures mentioned i've already seen in shops and the rest we already knew about.

Those "leaks" must really annoy Hasbro.

Am I correct in that there are currently no pics floating around of this as of yet? I almost hope it doesn't look as cool as it potentially sounds...
