Use this thread to discuss Botcon 2007 - Botcon 2007 Hasbro Tour Images and Information. Full Botcon 2007 gallery here: Botcon 2007 Sol here! Just got back from the Hasbro tour. An immense amount of information for you, so I'll keep it to the highlights: - Movie Pre-production table - lots and lots of stuff on show. You got to see the process where they started out from and what the went through in the evolution. Interesting note for some of you who like to collect the Movie cast - Arcee and Wreckage were originally in the Movie (Wreckage started life as Stryker) - Larger Robot Heroes may be coming! Suggested may be a redone, larger Unicron and also a Devastator! - Some new pre-production Movie toys were shown - A Blackout redeco in orange and white (tentatively named Evac) and a new mold Osprey (VERY cool). Also a new Legends toy was shown in vehicle mode - Ironhide. - Alternators as a series started out in the US - it was initially developed as a concept by Hasbro then suggested to Takara as a possible line. - Initially, the Movie TFs did not talk. Hasbro pushed for it. Same with the windows on Prime's chest and Cullen. - There was a table of test shots shown showing the evolution of the process after the paint masters - Payload was there in vehicle mode, Leader Brawl in both modes, Recon Barricade final packaged sample. - Masterpiece Starscream is a Wal Mart exclusive for release in fall. A prototype in mock up packacking (very early) was shown. - Mockups for the Military Alternators were shown - never got any further than mockups made of spare parts. - Titaniums (6 inch) are going on indefinate hiatus. The five named in the leaflet are still shipping (WW Prowl, Grimlock, etc) but Arcee, Cosmos, WW Bumblebee, WW Cliffjumper and Shockwave are not happening. Prototypes were shown though and they were very nice. - Prototype of Porsche Alternator Jazz was shown. - Foam prototype of a very different Energon Prime trailer was shown.
