I do not see as much anti-fembot protests as the pro-fembot supporters make out to be. I like new things. Even though the molds will be the same as before, at least we get new characters. My question is how long these toys will take to go tot he shelves. Windblade was a new mold and it took over 2 years to produce it. Will it take that long for Victorion to visit store shelves? Or will it be like Generations Arcee and Chromia with limited distribution as the last wave of Combiner Wars in 2017?
can we add "female transformer" as one of the thing that TF fans claim to ruin transformer forever?
anyway, dont like female combiner, well there is superion, manesor, defensor, bruticous and deverstator to choose from.
There's a history full of things that were going to "ruin TFs forever," that ended up enriching the franchise in lasting ways. This will be no different. I sincerely hope this team is awesome enough that fans demand their inclusion in subsequent series.
I am hoping sales of these do well enough that Hasbro decides to later give us Firestar, Moonracer, Elita 1, Lancer, Beta, and Paradron Medic in the Generations line. Also, hopefully releasing them in a wave that actually makes it to retail shelves would be nice.
+1 vote for this.
Let it not be known that I'm some kind of anti female Transformers Fan, I own a few, in fact I have purchased Windblade, StrongArm, Acree, among others and there a few designs that I'd buy immediately if I had the chance (Nautica!), but I'd like to give fans who feel disenfranchised a measured voice.
I think if we could see the progress of the voting, it would make a world of difference.
I must admit, Victorion would be the first female combiner, and that's a not a bad thing by any measure.
If we get all the rumored Combiners we'll have more than enough to choose from:
(Superion, Menasor, Defensor, Bruticus, Computron, Galvatronus (kinda counts), Victorion (The name sounds right to me)
-So either way, I believe we'll all sated.
Hopefully Victorian will have a few of these, My only fear is that they'll be randomly made up female bots when we have named bots waiting in the wings.
well i read it somewhere in this topic that Victorian will consist of 5 new characters. so no old character is going to be re-purposed like galvatronus...
You want the designers working on the Fan built bot to ignore the results of the poll for the fan built bot?
I literally have no idea what you are trying to say.
Edit: Also to the above posters I prefer my combiners to be male and gay like god intended.
When are the individual bots names revealed?
This is my hope as well
More fembots are always good.
Lets hope this set will be readily available for everyone to pick up.
limited edition, only 1000 ever produce.. hasbro claim stock shortage due to factory "exploded"...
Nothing confirmed, but it's very likely that Hasbro will do their full reveal of Victorion at their SDCC panel.
Im sure we will find out in July with the release of Combiner Hunters when Victorion goes up against Arcee, Chromia and Windblade. Im sure names will be dropped then.
Don't worry I'm gonna go on TFWiki and add them.
With a special note about Simon Furman being the founder of "No Females in mah Transformuhs"
Hasbro should just do a giftset in the vein of FOC Bruticus. If not, I'm sure sites like BBTS will have the individual figures packed together as an option to buy.
I was under the impression that Hasbro was gonna do individual releases alongside boxed sets for all teams except Devvy.
I totally forgot about that. I can see releases under the Platinum Label thing around the holidays. Slight repaints maybe with a sticker sheet. Maybe with Wildrider and Slingshot as apposed to AB and Offroad.
