    *Hasbro pulls fanbot out from between the fandom's thighs*

    "Congratulations! It's a Mary-Sue!"

    No plans for any more Dinobots right now...

    Because the people at Hasbro are absolute morons, apparently...

    The self-aware captions were cute, but yeah, disappointment abounds here.

    The "Thrilling 30" list is pitiful and stupidly random.

    The "Thrilling" 30 sounds anything but.

    Is it over?

    I was hoping this panel would cheer me up after missing Soundwave. Now I'm even more grumpy.

    Did I call it or what!?! I start a topic about modular transformers that you can swap parts and make your own. The next day Hasbro comes out with Constructi-Bots. Then just a couple days ago I commented how they could use little minicon style partner to hold their weapons and parts they're not using. And now Hasbro shows off the new ones come with TWO minicon type partners! Hasbro should just hire me as a consultant already.

    An Autobot female Seeker with a samurai motif and with a Drift-inspired colorscheme, only with black instead of white. Named Wingblade.

    Yep it's a fan-build character alright.

    I kinda hope the movie toys suck this bad as well. If they do I'll probably finally be out for real (except for maybe the MP stuff).

    Huh, some of the new Prime Constructbots don't look too terrible. Might pick them up if they go on sale.


    Also, does that slide of Waspinator imply a Waspinator Spotlight? 'Cuz that would be cool.

    No Dinobots or Combiners. Hasbro is on the cutting edge.

    What's hilarious though is that though it sounds like a genderswapped and factionswapped Armada Starscream, it's by COMPLETE COINCIDENCE that all those factors came together.

    The fan built bot is a female seeker that's black and red and has a samurai sword.

    Well that was a waste.

    Eveything else, while awesome, we've seen.

    Since they showed it, this really just goes to describe the problem with Whirl. They gave him the digigrade legs, but wheras in MTMTE they're actual full-on double knee type thing, these half-assed (regular lookign leg with thin bar making the lower leg sit behind the thigh" are extra lame. Those aren't "chicken" legs, those are regular legs with busted knees.
