    Hey, Everyone.

    Not sure if this has been posted yet. And I know that posting news articles from other TF sites may be faux-pas. However, this was a very important one I found that I needed to let everyone know about...

    It's a petition to Hasbro to produce the last three members of the Constructicon team. The article over at TFormers has all the details.

    Sign the Hasbro Petition to Bring On the Rest of the ROTF Constructicon Team Transformers

    Some say that petitions don't work. But from my understanding, the first TF live action movie score was NOT going to be released. There was no plan to do so. However, a petition that I happened to signed was responsible for influencing the final release of the score. If you all remember, the movie came out in July, and the score did not hit until October. I signed it at SuperHeroHype, and someone on the boards there was close with someone in the business that revealed the petition's influence on the executives.

    Moral of the story, whether it happens or not, sign it to say that we at least tried.

    Here's hoping!

    Then what is it?

    Mods can move it where ever they want. Just thought I would let people know.

    Besides, attitudes that petitions don't work is half the reason our democracy is failing. Not enough people believing in the power of people.

    Online petitions, while everyone thinks are great, never do anything.

    I'll sign it if they also make Hightower. I don't care if he's a deluxe or Voyager. And I would prefer a Voyager Scrapper and Deluxe Overload.

    Unfortunately this is true. While Hasbro does listen to fans and tries their best to keep us happy, there are many other factors that go into the decisions that they make on whether they can bring a toy out to market or not. While online petitions can inform them what we as collectors want, in the grand scheme of things young children are what really drive the sales in the US and we as collectors have to understand that we are not that high on the priority list as we think we are.

    Sorry, but there's absolutely no way this is going to work. Given the roughly 1-year development time for toys, the ROTF line has already been completed design-wise in its entirety. Conceptually Hasbro is working on whatever is following ROTF now. Which means if they say it ain't coming in ROTF, it ain't coming. Especially since we're talking about what would obviously be new molds here.

    That's not to say any further constructicons won't happen though. Look at Flareup, we're getting a toy of her and her design is well established. Long Haul was the first completed design, yet the last of the Construticons to be released (so far). What we've seen so far from Hasbro is only going to take us into early 2010 at best, given the way cases are being released. Plenty of time for a further Constructicon or two.

    We know pretty much for certain that Hightower isn't going to get a toy, since he never even had a conceptualized robot mode (it's pretty obvious with the legends figure a robot mode was flimsily worked around the vehicle mode).

    Scrapper probably has the best chance since he had a very brief robot-mode shot in the film. Personally, if we saw anything else, i'd love it to be a voyager-class Overload figure. Really dig his concept robot mode. But when you think about it. Demolishor, Long Haul, Mixmaster and Rampage clones are the only robot-mode Constructicons that were on screen for more than 5 seconds (they got about 10).

    Hasbro has said in the latest round of Q&As that there won't be any toys of the remaining three Constructicons released (beyond the likely stateside release of the Legends class toys).
