    after hearing all the info that came out of the panel today, I'm curious if the art they showed for the 13 will eventually become toys. I personally think that it's exciting that hasbro is putting an emphasis on the 13. I really hope that they do become toys?

    I doubt it. Unless they appear in something substantial.

    Sort of, but that's like a mixing of concepts. Only in the Movieverse are they referred to as "The Primes." In Dreamwave and other G1-based fiction, "The First 13" refers to the first 13 Transformers that Primus created in his efforts to battle Unicron. In G2, these 13 would reproduce through budding, thus creating the subsequent generations of Transformers, and diluting Primus' essense each time it happened.

    It's something really nice to add to the mythology, but I just don't know if we'd ever get the toys. 13 toys would take up a great deal of any wave and if they were in a size class to showcase them bigger than life then they would eat up a huge chunk of many collectors budgets.

    Plus the big question of would they appeal to kids?

    Well 5 years ago they made Vector Prime already. then they repainted him into SG Alpha Trion and then made titanium 6 inch Fallen and later used him for ROTF.....

    Technically they already made toys for some of the 13 but not from those designs though,

    To get toys for the original 13 transformers would be pretty cool, but I wouldn't count on it. I'm just happy they actually touched upon the 13 and showed interest to explore them.

    Aren't we getting like 4 or 5 of them? I could be wrong, but these could be Hasbro's wetdream, remold/repaint The Fallen 13 times!

    We probably will eventually as the 13 show up in related fiction. But not everything at once.

    I doubt they'll get toys, unfortunately. But their designs do sound pretty cool

    We've already got Vector Prime, Alpha Trion, The Fallen, and Nexus Prime. Only 9 more to go!

    According to the Botcon report today, he is. Still makes no sense, since Shattered A3 is NOTHING like any other incarnation...

    It'd be the most awesome thing ever if Hasbro released them all in a subline called "TRANSFORMERS: THE THIRTEEN". Pipe dream, but still...

    I'm under the impression that Shatteredverse doesn't follow the same rules in regards to singularities. SG Alpha Trion (or any other of the 13, for that matter) being exactly the same as "regular" Alpha Trion kind of defeats the purpose of a mirror universe in the first place.

    But giving them different personalities defeats the idea of a singularity. It's a Catch-22!

    I would hope for an alpha trion eventually if the novels keep up.

    He'd make the perfect borders/bookstore incentive.
