    $255m in profit makes me really wish they could have eaten a couple grand and kept on painting the Titanmasters after wave 1 (especially the single packs which pretty much look like KOs on shelf now)

    (Also, I know that snot how it works, but a guy can dream)

    Now that's just stupid logic. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a story very similar to the original with only some design changes. There's absolutely no reason a rebooted G1 couldn't return in an updated form and still appeal to today's kids.

    Someone was right about the Team Combiners: Two robots as arms, and other 2 as torso.


    Also worth mentioning: Since when Devastator was part of Titans Return? Hasbro is going to rerelease him with Titanmasters?

    "Only some design changes" is ridiculous, the new TMNT show has a completely different design aesthetic that appeals to modern audiences. But that's irrelevant anyway because my point is not what can and can't be done. My point is that the presentation man verbally distinguised between upcoming core kid cartoons and the G1 aimed stuff aimed at fans. There's more G1 animation in the form of webseries coming, but the core cartoon is not it. He stated core cartoon will keep the current story going.

    He was retooled into a completely different figure that shares none of the same transformation patterns?

    So I am currently at the Toy Fair in the Javitz center.  There is no Hasbro booth at the convention center that I can find.  Does anyone know where the Hasbro set up is?  It must be off site at another location.  Anyone have any info?

    Thanks.

    That picture is too small and we can't see it's name! Robot mode has the barbarian look of the Dinobots.

    Looks like we're getting quite a few redecoes of the AoE lineup, from a first glance.
