Hasbro Q2 Financial Call 2015 Transformers

Welcome back to another TFW2005 Hasbro Conference Call Coverage. Earlier this morning Hasbro held their Q2 Financial Call with the investors and media. As usual TFW Network participated. Several statements were made regarding their upcoming projects. But nothing we haven’t already heard about other than a certain franchise making a return. And those statements include:

  • Transformers Cinematic Universe
  • Transformers: Robots In Disguise
  • Success of SDCC 2015 (Hasbro-Machinima Partnership)
  • M. A. S. K.

You can read more about the topics, after the jump.

Transformers Devastation Poster2

Guido Guidi has shared on his Facebook page a clear version of the Transformers Devastation poster he worked on that was handed out during San Diego Comic Con 2015. The poster depicts a space battle scene that is very reminiscent of toy packaging art from G1 featuring most of the characters we have seen in game trailers and demos so far. Interestingly, we also see Menasor in his Combiner Wars configuration (His left leg is made of new Stunticon Offroad as confirmed by Guido himself here). Will we see Menasor featured in the game? Only time will tell. Until then, check out that clear image after the break.

Transformers Robots In Disguise San Diego Comic Con 2015 Exclusive Trailer

Well, nothing is exclusive these days… especially when it comes to Comic Con. We are sure our members have been enjoying the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer and the recently released Suicide Squad trailer which were to be exclusive to San Diego Comic Con 2015 at least for few weeks. Oh well.

Anyway, Hasbro has released the Transformers: Robots In Disguise San Diego Comic Con 2015 Exclusive Trailer on their You Tube channel. You all can enjoy it too, after the jump. But remember, there are MAJOR SPOILERS if you haven’t watched the finale yet.

Now, where’s that Deadpool trailer?

Not too long ago, we’d reported that famed Takara designer Shogo Hasui – known for his work on such Transformers items as the Masterpiece line and Combiner Wars Devastator – would be attending SDCC 2015. Today, we are starting to get reports from TFW members of their experiences with him – we thought we’d collect them here for all to see.

The most pertinent information to come out here is that it appears Hasui did, in fact, NOT design Masterpiece Tracks or Ironhide – rather, it sounds like it was Hironori Kobayashi who designed them. He is also not currently on the Masterpiece team, but he is still a member of the general Transformers team, and says he hopes to return to the Masterpiece line within the next year.

There’s more details and photos, and you can check it all out after the break! Keep an eye on this post as it will be updated with any further reports that come in.

During SDCC 2015, there were exclusive Transformers: Devastation posters being handed out – and now we have a good look at it, courtesy of TFW2005 boards member luks0r! Most notably, this poster features Menasor and the Insecticons – the latter of which we’ve gotten brief glimpses of in the gameplay clips that have been released, but the former is completely new to us. He appears to be taking a bit of inspiration from his Combiner Wars body as well. Could this be confirmation that Menasor will be appearing in the game alongside his fellow Decepticon combiner Devastator?
