TFW2005 Coverage Of Toy Fair 2017 Hasbro Investor Event - Transformers News - TFW2005
Wow he actually LOOKS Fall of Cybertron inspired!
Yeah... I like the design, I like FOC Bruticus, I still have my Fruiticus with upgrades. If they were to make an articulated group of warrior figures (and a voyager) that combine in to this Bruticus that would be sweet. Even if they just reshell the CW Combaticons I think I'd buy it. I love those toys and this design would be cool to have in posable plastic. I am a bit bummed though that we are going so deep into G1 referential material though. My favorite part about NuRID was the new designs, our new Decepticons, Strongarm, those were good deluxe toys of new characters which I was so happy to buy along with my G1 remakes from CW and TR. It's probably really exciting for the kid fans of the show to have combiners, but I am a bit bummed that there aren't new combiner characters, and the warriors we've seen so far are referencing G1 pretty hard, as I don't think many adult fans (myself included) will be buying these when the generations line is already doing G1 stuff, and more G1 at that.
But for real Hasbro, make a team of deluxe+ Combaticons that can articulate and combine and I'll pick those up, just also please show something new in addition. I would love an original team of Decepticon combiners drawing from the RID design mentality.
holly shit !!! bruticus and menasor together in season 3 !? this is turning out to be an awesome toyfair and series season
After the mention of Starscream's WfC body last "season", I'm fully expecting a character (namely Bee) bringing up the fact they fell from space and crashed into Cybertron during the Great Exodus/War.
I like the animation design of the Bee combiner but the toy looks like garbage, which is a shame.
Man, why did they steal RID's name? They clearly should call the show Re-Generation 1: Combiner Wars at this point. There was never any originality in this show's story telling (when there was a story at all) but now there's not even any original designs. I would say the upside is that I like their aesthetics and that their toys could be cool, but we already know the toys are crap.
The TF cinematic universe had better, by some miracle, be actually decent, or else I'm going to have lost all interest in Transformers... Again.
Edit: Also, what's up with the Beebiner's oversized head? Or is Bruticus' undersized? I think it might be both.
"Look! More Combiners! You love them! You love Combiners! You like big robots well LOOK it's an even bigger robot-- holy cow, what an awesome idea that we've been using non-stop in the fiction for the past two and a half years! No one could POSSIBLY be sick of it yet! What will we think of next--? Oh shit, it's MORE Combiners! God damn, who needs a single original concept in Transformers when we can have every story arc from now til the end of time be the focus of COMBINERS!"
Do I even need to repeat myself about opinions and the Transformers fanbase.
All I can hope is 2017-19 brings a miracle or else i'll lose my faith in the Transformers fanbase.
Watch Bruticus be a redeco of his FoC design. Or if they do use entirely new molds they won't be compatible with the CW combiners.
It would be such a shame. I could see it happening but I feel like if Hasbro can sell the figures at the same price point, leveraging some CW engineering to save money is such a no brainer. But I could see possibly no combining warrior/deluxes at all. Only that power rangers type and those crash combiners. Would be a real shame.
I'm pretty sure RID15 isn't CW and/or Generations. This toy will most likely be a simplified new mold aimed at a younger audience.
are there any toys for the individual stunticons and combaticons shown !?
So when will the New season air did they say?.
I heard they showcased a trailer or something like that. Hopefully that gets uploaded.
Really? I saw people saying they only showed up the new opening.
It was the opening? That counts as new footage in my books. I still want to see it.
Yes. Apparently there's some new shots of the combiners.
Did they add anyone to the main cast? For example, Blurr or Twinferno? It would be nice to see it.
I'm not sure, didn't get to see the new intro myself and no one's been specific about it. They just said there's combiners com the new intro. But honestly? I don't think so. I guess someone would've pointed it out alongside the combiners, like saying "there's new members" or something like that
