    Awesome news.

    Shame it's only bi-monthly, but ah well it's a hell of a lot better than nothing!

    We will do our best to weed out the questions that we feel are either easily answered by the fan community or do not serve a general purpose.

    Questions like "Why did you not release Thundercracker and the other Seekers in the mainline for Classics?" ... which would be because Classics was designed as a filler line, it wasn't until the movie was successful that they determined they could then go ahead and continue on a movie-feel line in Universe 2.0 (which describes the paint schemes everyone bitches about). BotCon 07 toys were determined back in 2006, before the thought of continuing Classics beyond 2 waves was decided, and thus they wanted fans to have a shot at those figures and thus approved them for BotCon.

    Hindsight 20/20 but those be the apples son.

    Finally, a way we Transformers fans can ask Hasbro some tough questions that we need answers I'll post mine soon enough. But this is so cool.

    my question isnt about movie specifics but somewhat related to movie toys. i dont want specifics thou that would be like spoiler stuff.

    id like to them that if they are taking all the new toy engineering learned from animated and universe both done by hasbro are going to be used to make the new movie toys even older chars like optiimus and rest "more" like the movie? more or less will they use there new toy poseability and transformations to be more movie accurate? i hope thats vague enough to pass.

    The following question is one that all fans should be wanting an answer to. I know for me that the result is forcing me to spend my $ with other companies such as Tak-tom and lego lately.

    Q: Why has the general craftsmanship and quality control steadily declined since the Cybertron line to its current low point in the current Universe line?

    Will you try to improve QC on later waves of toys or are the costs too high right now to do so

    Is the new Optimus anniversary going to be the only "special edition" G1 re-issue released in the US?

    Yup I agree, this could be a small step twards a good connection with hasbro, so lets not ruin it people!

    My biggest concern is the quality control, I have been very dissapointed with the quality control almost all of my animated figures had defects except for the awesomeness that is Blitzwing!

    Guys, I hate to play mod, but this thread isn't the actual question asking thread. You'll find that over HERE.

    This is a great idea.

    Hasbro Canada just started this a couple months back with Cybertron.ca - good to see the parent company is getting in on the action.

    This sounds exactly like what Mattel's been doing for awhile now with various boards, which is a good thing. Are any sites besides TFW participating?

    My question would be :

    Now that the 2nd Transformers movie is coming soon, does Hasbro have any plans to reintroduce the 3" Titanium line for movie characters ?

    Personally, the 3" Titaniums were one of my favourites as it was the most accurate representation of the characters' movie forms. Thus, will there be more 3" titaniums for the 2nd movie's characters? (or is the line gone forever?)

    (Not asking any specifics bout characters and such, would just like to know in general if this line would be resurrected for the 2nd movie)


    Thanks in advance !
