Love the angry eyebrows on Gnaw, that's a nice touch there.
That was probably the worst Fan First Friday Transformers presentation yet. Only two new reveals, both of which were things we already knew about anyway. Complaining about how "this is already leaked" when they show us next to nothing. "You guys love exclusives, right?" Come on.
Meanwhile, a handful of other toys that we've seen already don't get officially unveiled. Artfire, T-Wrecks, Grindor and Ravage get nothing. New RED listings, Jolt, Perceptor, could've been great reveals to get ahead of the leaks for once.
It was funny to me that the presenter said Power of the Primes Slag was part of "Combiner Wars" and that the Titans Return Legends Gnaw was "Legion" class. Wow, it's almost like continually changing the names of toylines/size classes is really confusing, even to Hasbro's own employees.
They tease us with SS reveals coming in May back at Pulsecon, and it's just more G1? Surely they MUST be aware of the effect that's having. It's like they're actively trying to frustrate live-action fans. I'm a fan of all continuities and I don't dislike G1, but come on, this is getting ridiculous.
Yeah, the stream was a bit disappointing, but people shouldn’t be acting like Hasbro hates them specifically because they didn’t show 2 Bayverse figures
while true, They have yet to do that in any event, so I wonder if they would even be open to it. because a lot of the images they show are taken by one of the US departments using final figures.
Another tetrajet.... how many recolors of this mold have been made now?
Ok, not sure if anyone else noticed but I think another G1 Transformer’s been teased here that no leaks have mentioned yet?
You know how the background art sometimes includes Easter Eggs for upcoming toys? Well in the background of Wreck-Gar’s art there’s a photo of a Junkion ship that looks suspiciously like a remold of Cyclonus.
See for yourself (this would be something fun and new, having an air-based Junkion for a change!)
Somewhat surprised they didn\'t reveal jolt and grindor, unless they are leaving them for takara somewhere.
I get why you feel he was gloating, to some degree, but I fully disagree with the rest of your post. He insulted no one and you know it. He insulted the property, the toys, not the fans. Don't do that. Don't twist things into something they're not. If you're that emotionally attached to your stuff that you start taking it personally because someone doesn't like what you do, then it's time to take a break and step away from the screen. Get some fresh air and some sunshine, both are good for you.
Gloating, to a degree, I'll give you. That's it.
SS86 Dinobots: don't come with swords because they didn't use them in the movie
SS86 Gnaw: comes with gun even though he didn't use it in the movie
Wow. That was really nothing. Only 1 thing that hadn’t leaked. Now I know how the Power Ranger fans feel on their FFFs.
Back to the real leak thread.
If there’s already physical leaks then Hasbro likely already has the final designs being used in production.
If anything, how well they handled Gnaw makes me even sadder that Alicon isn't as screen accurate...
Your mom's a slag.
So we got reveal of 3 G1 guys in Studio Series'86 and Shattered Glass Starscream, but no Movieverse guys, good. Boy Hasbro did the market team found out the leaks, unlike LEGO and many tries to stop leakers to leak their stuff.
I actually was looking forward to Jolt…
Such weird childish anger. "No no no I want my advertising right NOW! I wanna CONSOOM!". You people will see the toys before they're in toy aisles, it doesn't matter when or where, having any reaction stronger than "aw shame it was only 4 guys" strikes me as oddly invested.
I guess I' ok with what they revealed for 86. But I am not happy at all about no Bayverse.
Yeah but the dinobots come with unarticulated figures of everyone's favorite characters!
In fairness its pretty much dead on the cartoon bike mode
Wreck Gar looks pretty good. I might grab him. Haven't been all in on the SS86 stuff thus far, but I've always liked Wreck Gar's asymmetric design
Bit of a let down that there were no Bayverse figures, but nothing to be done about it now
It does seem a bit weird that they haven't though. If case breakdowns are to be believed, then Jolt, Sideswipe, and Grindor are in the same wave as these guys, which means that, for whatever reason, they've just decided to not reveal half of a wave? I'm sure there's probably some logical, behind the scenes reason for it. But still, seems odd
Has to be flopping around by now. Bet it'll fold in half after two transformations. lol
I think that's just art to show off the Junkion scenery from the movie and nothing more. I don't want you getting your hopes up.
