    Someone asked and they said "Yes" and said Hasbro has it on their to do list. That's what I thought I heard, but there were other members of the forum there, I saw Outlaw(who video taped the whole panel) and Sprocket, I think Wreck-Gar might have been there so anyone who can confirm this, would help.

    Kickback confirmed in the news thread, about this, that the Hasbro dude who gave the answer works at Hasbro Rhode Island. He just happened to be working at Hasbro Australia temporary. What reason does IDW have to insist Hasbro is making a toy for Drift? Get people to preorder Spotlight Drift?

    Crap, I missed this to go wait for Geoff John's autograph at the DC booth. Did Larry Hama sign any autographs?

    4 more issues of the AHM storyline? WTF? They haven't wasted enough space in the 7 issues that have been released so far... they planning ahead to waste more?

    The "4 more issues" are a new mini-series divided into two 11 page stories each that tie Furman and McCarthy's work together.

    Aaaaaah I didn't know that. Right after I wrote my post, I read IGN's report. It seems that we will have 4 more issues of coda for AHM.

    Sigh.

    AHM is starting to be like All-Star Batman.

    Yes, all the guys but 1 or 2 were willing to sign any autographs. The guys seemed really cool.

    Says who? IDW? The people that have been ranting about TOY TOY TOY all along without Hasbro confirmation?

    Sorry, Hasbro trumps IDW.

    So how much of fans being angry about the continuity connecting to Furman's stories has to do with this 4 issue miniseries? Does this also mean we won't get all the answers in the final five issues of AHM? I was hoping AHM would be totally over with issue #12. :(

    Hell yes to Spotlight Metroplex! Spotlight Jazz was always of interest to me, now I'm more interested as it's an origin story.Not sure what to make of AHMC, hopefully it and what's it's leading into will be better than AHM.

    Er, not really an "origin" story in the sense people might think by using that word. More of just a look at one story from his past.

    So yeah, you'll get an idea why the other bots respect him, but don't expect to see a few pages of him studying books at Special Ops school. :wink:
