1. Why havent Hasbro picked up the rights to make a DVD Set or Ultimate Collection of "Transformers RiD".

The Set has been in legal limbo since as long as I can remember and I just wondering why the USA has never seen it on DVD as of yet it would be nice to watch the series once again cause it has been at least 10 years since we last son on FOX Kids.

2. Do you plan on re-releasing any more Ultimate Collection sets such as Beast Wars, Beast Machines and also Armada.


3. Is it indeed true that "Transformers Animated" will be getting canceled after season 3 is finished. I have recieved emails and people have told yes it will be. I dont know rather or not it is true or not since nothing has been officially announced bye Hasbro/CN.

4. Are you in the process of making another Transformers series or is the Transformers series going to be taking a short break after animated is finished.

5. I am 27 years old and I still enjoy Transformers. But I think it is time to kick Transformers up a notch and give it a newer edge in a newer direct. Many fans including myslef has always wanted a more violenter, bloodier version of Transformers such as the 1986 animated movie was.

Maybe you guys could go in the direction of the New GI Joe-Resollute was I mean Transformers doesnt always has to be geared toward little kids I mean I am really enjoying animated but it is time to give Transformers a New look and in a new direction maybe a reboot of the franchise of sorts like how they are doing with movies now of days such as Star Trek.

1. when will we get anymore g1 one re-issues? Will we ever get G1 Japanese figures released here in America, such as Soundblaster, Twin Cast, Artfire, The Trainbots that form raiden, Overlord, Go Shooter, Minerba, Ranger, Browning, Victory Leo, and Star Saber. A repaint of Animated Snarl as Sludge, Classics versions of Slag, Ssludge, Snarl a deluxe for Swoop, a reuse of the names Trailbreaker, Gears, in a future toy line. G2 protectobots and stunticons that have prototypes and pictures I would really like a chance to get them. Will transformers Animated figures like Scrapper, Mixmaster, Omega Supreme ever get a toy? Also will there be any chance of more episodes of Transformers Animated after season 3, because I think that it is a great show and you should keep going with it.

1. Has there been further contemplation on the continuation of the Classics/Universe line after Revenge of the Fallen has run its course? (We still need Arcee, Jazz, Wheeljack, Triplechanger Springer etc.)

2. If the Universe line does continue, what are the chances we could see a Powermaster style Optimus Prime?

And I second these:

Thanks again to the kind folks at Hasbro for this opportunity.. without further ado heres my questions.

1- With Classics 2.0/Universe officially ended with the release of Countdown and Darkwind, will we be seeing its triumphant return after the ROTF line has run its course? Futhermore, roughly how long do your project the ROTF line to run for?

2- What line and size class will the future Drift mold be? I had thought he would be packaged in the current Universe style cards, but with that line now over.. where would Drift fit in? To that end, are there plans for him being a store exclusive at all?

3- With 2009 of course being the 25th Anniversary of Transformers, is there anything other than what we know about already that we can eagerly look forward to? :)

4- Should the Classics/Universe line return after ROTF (and I do hope it does!!) Are there any particular names the folks at Hasbro would like to bring into the line?

I would also like to second the following..

Are you in the process of making another Transformers series?

If I can think of any other questions I'll be sure to post them, but for now, thanks again for this opportunity!! :)

1. I really hope the Universe line continues as I like it a lot, I must say I have really enjoyed how the line has evolved. My question is, with the great way Universe Targetmaster Cyclonus turned out, is it possible that we will get to see re-imaginings of Headmaster characters like Hardhead or Brainstorm, or especially my favorites the Horrorcon's Snapdragon and Apeface?

The nice thing about guys like these is that being "futuristic" vehicles, there is no worry of license issues and the design can be pretty free as to styling.

2.Again in the Universe line, some really great moulds have come out of the Universe Classics line, fan-favorites that have been claimed by 'modders' for many various characters old and new. Some of these moulds include the Starscream seeker mould, which has already been re-done officially to get the Conehead seeker moulds, and the Sunstreaker mould, which has been re-painted several times officially to get both Sideswipe and Red Alert. My question is, considering the seeker mould has been re-tooled at least a few times officially, what is the possibility that we could see slight re-tools of the Sunstreaker mould, mostly just a different shell and head would suffice, to get characters like Wheeljack or as some fans have done Stunticons like Breakdown and Wildrider.

It would also be cool to get Jazz, Ricochet and Dead End with the Prowl mould being re-shelled with a more Porsche-like car.

3. What does the future hold in general for the Transformers universe. In my opinion many of the current story lines; Animated, Movie-verse and comics, have all been great, even my daughter loves animated. As far as the toys go, we have seen great strides in engineering with figures getting more pose-able and great updates. Is it possible we may even see more new characters and not just re-hashes of older ones, I like the idea of a Drift figure even without having read any comics containing him?

Will you make Deluxe versions of some of the Universe Legends figures? I have no interest in legends.

And will there be a Transformers: "Resolute"? That would be great!

1. There has been a lot of speculation around the ROTF combiner Devastator and the individual toys. It is obvious that the gift set vehicles do not have individual robot modes. Will we see a "premium series" combiner in which the individual vehicles have robot modes as well as the ability to combine? Or was the engineering of these figures far too difficult to incorporate robot, vehicle, and combiners and still have a viable structure to them?

2. Have designs already begun for the line for Transformers 3 and will having the extra year- Michael Bay has said he wants to take an extra year off between TF2 and TF3- be a help in engineering that line to avoid some of the differences between the on screen robot and the toy version (such as Bumblebee's face from the original line)?

3. Takara has continued to use the "chromed" paint with their figures (see Universe Hot Shot's weapon and MP Grimlock's sword and chest plating). Is there a reason the paint is not used on Hasbro figures anymore? And how much does the "lead in paint" issue have to do with the recent decline in TF profits?

I also second (or third or whatever) the question regarding what comes next after ROTF, Animated, and UniClassics.

4 Quick questions:

1.- Will there be UNIVERSE 3.0 TRANSFORMERS next year, and if that's so, how many new molds will there be (without spoilering)?

2.-Will there be DOMESTIC/US releases of MASTERPIECES TF like the SEEKERS and GRIMLOCK next year?

3.-When will there be a NEW TV series (anime styled like GUNDAM's quality) based on G1/G2 or any of the TF's sagas?

4.-Why does ROTF DEVASTATOR look like a robotic hybrid of GODZILLA and KING KONG?

1: Will your next line be more gritty, like ROTF, or more cartoony, like Animated?
2: Will the SW Crossovers line end? Many people don't care for it, and some have even theorized that it may have caused your sales to drop 47%.
3: Will the people at Hasbro give the TF brand a break for a little while?

When is 'Transformers - Resolute' coming out?

At what stage in development of the new Devastator for ROTF did everyone at hasbro think it a good idea not to give them robot modes?

Is there a chance of getting a Leader class figure that has a transformable torso without lights and a soundboard inside?

I know Hasbro has said before how difficult it is to design a combiner Transformer that can meet the current standards, but I was wondering since ROTF will be bringing back the concept, would it be possible to get reissues of the original combiners? I know I for one have already shelled out a lot of money for older Japanese reissue of Predaking, the club exclusive Seacons, and now the Encore Bruticus. I just think they would be a better hit than some of the past more played out reissues.

1. Given that HasbroToyShop sells blank white and blank black Mighty Muggs online, I was wondering if there were any chance of something similar being done with the Classics/Universe 2.0 Starscream/seeker mold? I think, used in the collectors environment of HasbroToyShop, it would be a very good seller.

1. Why aren't there any figures with lots of accesories anymore? Lot of the new figures are relatively "defenseless" while a lot of old figures sported both melee and ranged weapons.

2. Separate bases for figures: Will they return? Those made whole playsets from the smallest figures, like the micromasters.

3. Will not-so-spotlighted characters get Universe figures that are not repaints/remolds, like Onslaught or Powerglide did? Some hints at what is planned?

4. Can we expect some more reissues from the G1 times?

Are we going to see more G1 reissues?

(I have a feeling we'll hear the answer to this at Botcon next month.)

Will there be a new season of Transfomrers Animated? If there is can you decide when you want to end it so the story lines can made out and have more in depth story I.E. Lost and Supernatural.
When Transformers Animated does end what will happen with its toy line and what will come next?
