    Will Alternators molds be incorporated into the Universe 2.0 line?

    Have there been thoughts of a GI Joe vehicles - Transformers crossover line?

    Considering the unpopularity of killing Optimus Prime off in the original toyline, has Hasbro ruled out all possibility of having an Ultra Magnus, Rodimus, or even a completely original leader for a future toyline/story? Even if Optimus was present in some compacity, perhaps as a legendary figure, or even a mentor in the vein of Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond?

    1. What is the current status of the Classics Deluxe Starscream mold? When I ask this, I ask in terms of how much more mileage Hasbro can get out of it before it's no good, and for that matter if there's ways of extending its life for as long as possible (after all, that mold is the equivalent of the Star Wars Clone Trooper figures in repaintability)

    2. Is there a reason for those retoolings that Raven XL7 noticed on the upcoming reissue of Starscream's mold? (As in, are there accessories not shown in the picture?)

    1. Will the Universe line see other voyager/ultra versions of Prime or Megatron?

    2. With the 1984-86 bots and bots from Beast Wars and Armada being represented in the Universe line will characters from other lines (i.e. various late G1 gimmicks, RiD, Beast Machines) get new toys?

    3. How well has the Universe line lived up to expectations so far?

    1. How much longer (estimate) will the Animated line continue?

    2. What constitutes which molds get repaints (or retools)?

    3. Will we get Animated Robot Heroes ever (even if they're released under the Universe banner ala the Legends)?

    1. What is the status, if any, of Hasbro obtaining the "Trailbreaker" trademark?
    2. If the "Trailbreaker" trademark cannot be obtained, why hasn't a substitute name been issued for the character? Examples would be Tankor for Octane, Hardshell for Bombshell, Rodimus for Hot Rod, etc or even a brand new name like Stockade, Offroaditron, and Big Black Bot.
    3. I personally loved the more realistic and mature colors used on Japanese MP-3 Starscream and 2007 Movie Starscream. Is it reasonable to expect seeing more realistically colored molds for Starscream and possibly the other jets?
    4. Are there any plans to make a Universe 2.0 version of G1 Gears and G1 Windcharger?
    5. As a yes or no question, are there any current plans to redo Beast Wars or Beast Machines characters like what was done with BlackArachnia (Animated), Wasp (Animated), and Cheetor (25th Anniversary)? To clarify: any plans for redos of say Rhinox, Optimus Primal, BW Megatron, BW Scorponok, Rattrap, Tigatron, Airazor, Terrorsaur, or any others?

    Dear Hasbro Design Team,


    My question is about the quality of the current figures.

    For the figures in the Animated and Universe line the sizes of the toys are way way off a reasonable Size for the price of the figure, and the paint is getting very dull and leaving a lot of "gray area's"(literally, you didn't even bother to paint Silverbolt). Were paying more money for less of a toy. A lot of us transformers fans are getting the feeling that hasbro is just trying to tickle out all the money as they possibly can from our wallets. I would like to know, if hasbro has any intentions as too bumping up the quality of there figures. To be more specific, more paint,( Finish the figure, Movie Megatron was literally only painted on one side! Complete the figure, more detail.)and reasonable sizes. (if the character is normally big, lets make him big than.) Given this is a little nit-picky, but these figures, are getting worse in these two category's from what I see.

    These are some of the best molds I've ever seen from hasbro, but those two are some of the huge problems I see here. I do not appreciate being ripped off, and would ask if you could make a change.

    Huge fan,
    Patrick Cuddy

    1. aside from alternity, will we see a return of the alternators line with some re releases as well as new characters?
    2. Females? Arcee finally would be nice, in animated, universe and alternators that isn't a repaint of some male character that's painted pink, but perhaps a few others as well.
    3. can we get a leader class lugnut and grimlock. i love voyager grimlock and all but a leader class of him would be so sweet!

    Are there any plans for repaints of Classics Ramjet? Obviously Thrust and Dirge aren't happening, but what about new characters?

    I have three questions for submission:

    1. Is Inferno the only new Universe Voyager mold that we will be getting before the TF2 line hits, or will there be more in store?
    2. Any plans to do new-mold updated versions of Beast Machines characters for Universe that aren't Robot Heroes?
    3. What is the deal with the rumored repainted Superion Maximus and Bruticus Maximus giftsets-- can you confirm that they are coming, and if you can, can you tell us what store they'll be exclusive to assuming they don't get a wide release?
