    Unfortunate to see Warden moving on. The brand has moved in the right direction since he took over.

    That kinda sucks. I know he had some bucket list Transformers he still wanted to put into production that we haven't seen. Wonder if he got a few more of them into the pipeline before he moved to the new job and we just haven't seen the production samples yet?

    I hope the engineering team doesn't feel the need to change directions when they bring in someone new. I like where we're at with Transformers right now. If you like simplified, you have that option with Cyberverse. Generations gives you incredible sculpts and posability. I'd really hate to see either one get torn apart at this point.

    kingdom would be well into development already so anything coming out in pt3 likely had his influence

    You act like it was entirely up to him. Clearly he did well with Transformers and so now Hasbro wants to put him in lines that aren't doing so well.

    That's usually how it goes.

    Take someone who is in charge of a successful business unit and tell them that it would be good for their "development" and a great "opportunity" if they took over a less successful business unit and turned it around.

    Cell isn't aimed at the same things as HasLab. You can't get this size/movie transformation and that end result together etc.

    I do agree it'd be good to get an official update though

    Honestly cell while being poseable, realistically can’t use most of it because of his size, unless you have an entire table just for him. So really I wouldn’t say one can pull off much the other can’t for an actual display.

    Well... haslab got the looks. Core is packed with action. I guess it depends what people prefer. I guess i preferred big giant robots like Fortress maximus that looks great and can still do action posses well limited but can still pull some moves. I probably asking for too much on such a big transformer. Hopefully there will be updates on his posability.

    I expect Unicron to be as poseable as the current titans. Feet should have some extra joints that if strong enough might help in making him look more dynamic. Elbows are standard 90 degrees, knees look they can bend more but the leg kibble might get in the way. He likely won't be able to do yoga (we are also talking about a nearly 9kg toy after all) but I don't think he will end up as a statue.

    *sigh*

    Is the new thing starting with Kingdom going to be "Warden wouldn't have done this!" or anything people don't like getting blamed on Warden leaving and the new people taking over?

    Because that's gonna get old.

    Exactly. Warden did a great job with TF and Hasbro needs him to transition to some of the other properties they've invested in. Especially PR, which they invested heavily in and is in the midst of a major transition.

    Hey cool why are we still using the thread for an official Hasbro project to pimp a competing 3P product?

    oh i dont even really care about this or hasbro internals. i basically left mainline 30+ years ago. i was just making a snarky comment nothing more. you can take your reach somewhere else.

    with that said i wonder if we will be getting any new updates soon.
