United States Patent And Trademark Office has received a new filing from Hasbro.
The application contains a new logo under the usual category where all other Transformers Trademarks fall under.
The logo contains two halves of Autobot and Decepticon insignia fused into one. A similar logo was used by Hasbro and Takara several occasions before, including Transformers: Armada Sideways and Micron Legends Scourge. A name has not been given to the logo, but we can call it the AutoCon logo for the time being.
- Trademark ID: 87341865
- Filed Date: Feb. 20, 2017
- Owner: Hasbro, Inc.
- Category: Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms
We speculate that the new logo is for Transformers: The Last Knight, leading into the theory of Optimus Prime‘s status of Half Autobot and Half Decepticon. Additionally, the logo may be for the Autobot Dragonstorm‘s “Reveal The Shield” gimmick where the Mega 1-Step Changer interacts with the regular 1-Step Changers of the Transformers 5 Toyline.
