Stay tuned to this story for live coverage of the SDCC 2015 Hasbro Generations panel. We are periodically updating with new information as we get it – refresh periodically for new updates.
Transformers Devastation trailer shown. Shockwave, the Insecticons, and Blitzwing were all seen.
It’s been teased that Megatron may not be the last boss of this game.
There’s lots of easter eggs for fans, and fun stuff like throwing Decepticons around.
Some Grimlock footage was also shown – veteran Generation 1 voice actor Gregg Berger is providing the voice.
On to the toy news! Generation 2 Aerialbots were shown, along with their individual modes. They come with both a collector card and also a poster.
Generation 2 Menasor is confirmed. All five Stunticons are faithful to the unreleased set.
Both Menasor and Superion are set for a release in early 2016.
Next up is Victorion and her limbs.
Her torso is Pyra Magna, a Hot Spot remold.
The helicopters (Alpha Bravo remold) are Stormclash and Skyburst
The two race cars are Jumpstream, a Breakdown remold, and Dustup, who is the Dead End remold.
The set is rounded out with Legends Groove remold, Rust Dust.
Sold as a set with a poster and card. Out “sometime next year release”
Next up, a new combiner, named Betatron.
He is formed by a Voyager class Scattorshot, a heavy remold of Silverbolt. No word on individual Technobots – he’s intended to combine with existing toys.
Next up are the store exclusives.
Toys R Us is getting Masterpiece Bluestreak (available now) and Masterpiece Starscream in October.
Target is getting the Platinum edition Blaster and Perceptor set and Trypticon. Both of those coming to Target in August.
A Q&A session followed:
No plans for Dinobots Combiner
No plans for Predaking, or beast combiners in general.
Cannot conform MP-28 is Hound
The reason for the differences between Hasbro and Takara’s Devastators was basically cost.
The reason for not doing Prowlastator was because Hasbro wanted to give fans a G1 version of Devastator.
No plans to make toys of the Decepticon Justice Division.
