Transformers info from the panel…. OVER!!
Does anyone have more information on the vinyl record release?
no but it is a lot of bumblebes
Notice I said generations (ya know, the main line), seriously do you collect every figure from every line?
and the evergreen designs ? 4 is not little you know
we got g1 bumblebee
reveal the shield
bigger legend 1
bigger legend 2
the international market version 1 and 2
evergreen 1 and 2
the action master and other action figures
like 20 of g1 bumblebee
Bumblebee has had 3-4 generations figures since 2013, thrilling 30 legends, thrilling 30 deluxe, thrilling 30 goldfire and titans return legends. 3 of those released in 2013, they have actually not done a lot of bumblebee in generations lately
Can someone please ask next time when the f…. they would move from g1 to unicron trilogy, beast wars, original rid i am tire of g1 .
We already have 30 mp g1 optimus 3 molds and their infinite number of variants on classics we got
titan return voyaguer and leader
the new potp leader
evergreen 1, 2, 3,4
i am not against new optimus primes, but at least based on different incarnation they have rid, unicron trilogy, animated, prime, and they choose every year to give a new g1 prime please stop.Iam tire of that crap why i need another mp prime.
Also stop bumblebee give him a rest and put hot shot some year, sideburn, roadbuster i dont care but stop doing the same incarnation all time
I really like how they give a brief answer to the sticker thing then shift our attention away.
Although that is some interesting info.
yeah me to, really wanting greenlight and lancer and Minerva.
Thanks. That sucks. I hope WFC gives us a couple more female Autobots for the combiner as well as the rest of the missing Headmasters…
We’ve seen all the LC stuff for POTP. There’s another wave of each size class below that, and a few exclusives, otherwise, yeah, that’s it.
POTP is 12 months long and WFC starts January 2019. POTP only goes up to wave 3-4 depending on size class. This was all confirmed by Warden in the RFC interview.
So did TFW2005 ever get interviews with the Hasbro staff at the TF booth and I missed that or did they not ask question?s
I’m seeing conflicting information.
Is POTP roughly 18 months like practically all of the other lines? WFC part one would be summer 2019. People on Facebook are saying we’ve seen everything for POTP and WFC starts next January..
Blackout has ankle tilts?
I somehow missed that.
the amount of titans return was reduced compared to combiner wars and its looking like power of the primes is again going to be smaller than titans return. if theyre going to a 12 month cycle for their generations sublines then its not very logical to assume theyll be increasing the amount of generations product they put out
starscream looks like mechtech deluxe starscream with a weijiang treatment.
same transformation, but with a few small improvements.
I see some improved joints, a new paint job, and a pair of gap-filling flaps, but the rest seems to be the same.
Damn, if I gave a crap about movie toys, I'd be so freaking excited for these. Happy for the fans who are probably going nuts over Studio Series right now.
I think the best thing that came out of this weekend wasn’t even a transformer. The return of the star wars vintage line is back , and the 4 foot long Jabba sail barge ! There goes my bank account .

The fact that Impactor doesn't have any good official toys is precisely the reason I don't want to waste another iteration of him on a Deluxe figure. If they make this figure, they'll probably never do him in voyager or bigger.
I've been using Energon Landmine as a stand-in for now. He's got good size, a shoulder canon, and some other elements that make it work. Also I think his power-up armor is very fitting of a "Wreckers" feel.
