Once again it’s time for another TFW2005 Reveal.

Hasbro has applied for a new Trademark at the United States Patent And Trademark Office. But this time the trademark doesn’t directly refer to the Transformers Franchise unlike previous reveals. This one is sort of indirect.

Titled as Mini Mashers, we can speculate that the line would consist of miniature Hero Mashers figures which would include (speculated) Transformers and Marvel characters.

The trademark was filed on December 4th, 2014 under the Trademark ID 86467419.

Trademark Description:
“Toy kits containing a plastic toy figure and detachable plastic body parts for affixing to the toy figure to form various caricatures”

We do not know when we’ll hear about this officially but Hasbro has been revealing their new lines as soon as they are applied as trademarks in recent years than previously (RID was revealed just weeks after filing the trademark whereas Airachnid took 3 years to do that).

Also via Transformers Colombia we have a look at the Construct Bots Dinobot Riders Galvatron and Starscream. These two mini figures are scaled to ride on the backs of the larger Dinobot figures. Notably this Construct Bots Dinobot Rider Starscream is the Movie-themed Construct Bots first venture into characters not in Transformers: Age of Extinction – an indication of the direction the line might take going into next year, perhaps?
