    Thank you very much for all the information! That must have been a lot of work.

    Thanks also to Hasbro for actually listening to all fans and trying to please each section of the fanbase. I look forward to the inclusion of a lot more of the movieverse! Happy to hear that Generations is going strong for all who like that as well!

    I kinda feel really bad for Warden now, given you could tell he was teasing all that movie stuff that was leaked.

    Also, Tony, as someone who is driven irrationally nuts by faction symbol mixing oversights, THANK YOU for asking about that :p

    Starting to feel bad for Warden. Sounds like HasCon was genuinely going to have a ton of reveals. Maybe not as much of the Power of the Primes stuff, but definitely all the movie stuff.

    Still, we only know what's coming now, not what it looks like. So at least there's that. And maybe they will be less inclined to keep later waves under wraps because we already know about them. :lol

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking as I was reading this, feeling kind of bad for him. You can tell he's constrained on what he can say, but he's excited he'll be able to reveal it at HasCon, and that's just gone down.

    As far as the symbols go, I obviously haven't been paying attention. Not sure I could even tell the difference between movie and "regular" symbols (I didn't really realize they were different.)

    Well, that definitely creates hope that those leaked movie figures are still coming and that they're not from a canceled line. Having a bit of an idea of what to expect actually makes me more excited to see the HasCon reveals, because I really wanna see the actual toys. I just hope we get to see a decent amount of them and don't get stuck with only having an announcement of the line, with just one or two toys revealed. I wanna see that Crowbar figure and find out if OP, Screamer, Meg and Brawl are getting new Voyagers or if they're simply having their Leaders repainted.

    If there was any remaining doubt about whether the names on that Trypticon cereal poster were for existing boxsets or a hint about future boxsets, this should settle it. It would be nice, though, if Hasbro would release the list of who is paired with who, just to clear up the few unclear names (Fengulf, Refracter, etc)

    Yes, they obviously voided all their press events for the next two years to intentionally share all of their toyline with a few hundred people on the internet.

    Try 8 months. That ain't two years worth of toys. Also, if anything I think it builds hype for the press releases. Keep in mind those were very small blurry pics, and many of the figures were represented with placeholders. I for one will be no less excited to be getting both generations and movie figures that I've been asking for for years, just because I already know they're coming...

    That being said, I do have that feeling in the pit of my stomach that I had the time I went to get some grosheries out of the car for my parents about a month before Christmas, and saw HFTD leader starscream hiding under a coat...

    So I guess we\'re not getting the two other boxsets after all?  That explains the clone 2-pack...

    Lol, TFW got hit with a takedown order too? That leak was legit, this confirms it. Kinda sucks that they have to go into full damage control mode now.

    Yea... sorry, but we didn't need the leaks to know about the combining gimmicks. All those did was reveal characters and a couple new molds (the rest is placeholder art).

    You don't make a new CW compatible Jazz if you aren't going to continue the combining gimmick.

    You don't awkwardly turn in Starscream's arms if you aren't hiding combiner ports that people already saw.

    Good stuff @Tony_Bacala , thanks! this came off a lot more "off the cuff" and less canned in the answers then the Seibertron interview.

    He better mean we will get the last and best headmasters; Apeface and Snapdragon. Making a G1 inspired headmaster line without them would be beyond stupid. I also hope we will get a deluxe Repugnus, I mean they already have titanmaster of him and Twinferno (*Doublecross), so why not continuing the monsterbots? It will be weird and inconsistent if only Twinferno will have titanmaster:( ...


    *Sorry, I like the name Twinferno better
