    It's that time again everyone :) 


    Please post your questions for Hasbro here, in this thread, and we shall pick out the best ones to submit to Hasbro. As we're running on a very tight schedule this go around, if you have any burning questions please post them right away!


    Please remember, Hasbro are unlikely to answer questions about specific character toys (such as, can you make a RotF Highwire based on Sam's Mom's pink bike; or, Is there going to be a Leader Class Blackout / Bonecrusher). Other than that, post up your questions and hope for some answers!

    1. do you have any plans for toys for any more of the constructicons from revenge of the fallen, like scrapper or overload?
    2. do you have any plans to make masterpeace toys for other lines besides g1? like beast wars, animated, or movie?
    3. any news on a toy line or cartoon that will fill the void between revenge of the fallen and the 3rd transformers film?

    Are their any plans to make store exclusive reissue/masterpiece figures available to other retail outlets besides walmart and toys r us?

    Does the continuation of a generation 1 reissue line of transformers depend upon its popularity at toys r us given the stores scarcity?

    I'd like to know the answer to this question because most TRU's in Texas closed a long time ago! How can you gage interest for a product in a retail store that is unable to properly promote it?

    PLEASE ask them this question....

    Would Hasbro be willing to sell Takara transformer products such as Henkei/encore figures to the collector's market in the United States similar to what Takara does with their "USA EDition" figures such as Universe powerglide/Masterpiece Starscream?

    1: Are there any plans for a ROTF Bugly or any other pretenders?
    2: Are we likely to see any headmasters? Be it in ROTF or Universe?
    3: Will ROTF have a sub line like TFTM had allspark power?

    The ice cream van twins are a fantastic toy. Are there any plans for an evil Decepticon repaint of them and can we expect to see more ice cream van transformers in future toy lines?

    Why does Human Alliance Skids come with an Arcee toy which has Chromia's design while Human Alliance Mudflap comes with a Chromia toy that looks just like Arcee? Robot Heroes Chromia seems to be the Flareup design, painted blue. There seems to be some confusion where the bikes are concerned.

    There's a lot of confuion about the combining aspect of the Arcee bikes. In the movie toyline, will Chromia, Arcee & Flareup combine and if so will it be a traditional combined form (larger robot, 2 arms, 2 legs, etc) or will their combined form be something different?

    I am a large fan of the Movie Constructicons, and Devastator is simply awe-inspiring. However, sadly we have not seen toys of all of his components. Will we see toys of Scrapper, Hightower and Overload? Preferably Voyager Scrapper, Deluxe Overload and Deluxe Hightower. Also, will we see a red redeco of Rampage?

    Given the re-release of Soundwave at SDCC, are there any plans to do more reissues? If so, what are they and what characters are we likely to see? Like the "Apex Armoro Optimus Prime" released at TRU some time ago, are any toys that haven't seen a release in the US being considered as well (such as Star Saber, Overlord, etc.)?

    There have been many questions asked since the "hiatus" of Alternators about the status of the line. Now that the "Human Alliance" toys have been released, is this line to take the place of Alternators, even if there is no set scale like the Alternators line? If not, are there any plans to return to precisely scaled Transformers?

    Why is Arcee Red/Pink while FlareUp Purple?
    shouldn't it be the other way around?
    (considering that Arcee was purple in the first movie toyline)

    Clearly the second film making such a massive amount of money is good for Hasbro, but what sort of impact do the near unanimous, horribly negative reviews of the film have on the company?
