    So, what questions would you guys like to have Hasbro answer at Botcon, be it in their own presentation or from fans asking during the panels?

    Personally I've got two big ones and one not so big one.

    1) What the fuck with Crankcase's fingers getting neutered? Seriously annoying, I mean I got lucky that they don't look THAT bad on mine, but it's just messed up to have to pray you open up a figure that doesn't look like someone took a hacksaw to it ya know? Bad enough that you gotta worry about quality control on the joints not being loose.

    2) Is the reason for the incredibly noticeable shrinking of the figures in the DotM line due to the inclusion of the mechtech weapons?

    3) Any chance for a weapons pack? If they are gonna do this mechtech crap, they may as well give us a chance to buy up a decent variety.

    I'm curious about what other figures they're planning to do as far as Transformers Prime goes. Would really like to have a voyager Soundwave or Bulkhead.

    Just one question will be enough for me - Are there any plans for Classics 4.0, 5.0 & so on? I know we'll be getting some Generations remolds/repaints later in the year but what about after that? I'm dying to know... :lol

    I'd ask if they had any plans to accept donations for GPS research.

    I'd like to know if we'll see the returns of Leader and Supremse size-classed figures to the classics styled lines.

    I would like to know if they plan on repackaging and redistributing some of the hard to find RTS figures? Was the new head sculpt shown in Wreck-gars instructions for Scrapheap, or is there another release of this head sculpt planned for the US?

    In the case Waspinator does win the fan vote. What else would it have to take for Hasbro to acknowledge the Beast Era generation and give us more updates of our characters? Say like the MP series, Generation line, or even a few nods in the movie series?

    I assume you wouldn't actually phrase the questions like that?

    The answers to 1 and 3 are clear as day.

    The answer to 2 is because they didn't make as much money on ROTF as they wanted.

    In fact the answers to most of these 'questions' should be blatantly obvious to anyone who pays a reasonable amount of attention.

    Simple enough, I would want only to know about the figures that didn't make it out of RTS, mainly RIBFIB and Bodyblock. Just my freakin' luck, they do an awesome green repaint of a toy I like and BAM cancelled.



    Oh, and when are they gonna release that RH Prowl/Laserbeak two pack

    Hey Black,considering that my local Walmart and Targets still have Gen. figures at regular price I figure the line will continue,otherwise they'da been marked down with the RTS and PCC lines.So I wouldn't worry I am sure once the movie comes out that more classic goodness will show up with the dotm figures.

    As for what I'd like answered if I was going would be if we are ever gonna get Arcee and a proper size Cosmos either in deluxe or scout size class.

    What is the deal with Hasbro's version of "red" plastic? Why can we not get a true "red" toy in western markets anymore?

    Classics Ironhide
    DotM Sentinel Prime

    Both use some odd pink tinted red, while Classics Inferno used an all too dark red for a fire truck.

    What's up with this?

    (others: Animated Ironhide, Generations Perceptor, PCC Beacon, HftD Hubcap...)
