    If they're gonna complete the teams, lets get more CDF please? Also interesting that the Armada Prime has "more to come" rather than just a no. Is there any Takara event coming up?

    The fact that they're implying that we'll see the seasons 2 and 3 cast of BW and even beyond the Mainframe cast that's making me look forward to the future. :D

    Yeah that bugged me. Not so much asking about the rest of the show cast (since the trilogy is ending) but framing it as wanting to get Hasbro to commit to finishing it.

    As if they could, or would, and not just issue some vauge answer that some would take as commitment regardless.

    The fandom gets opportunities to talk with Hasbro like this and often wastes them. Like, I don't see any questions about what lead to Earth Bee and Soundwave being in Netflix instead of WfC mainline.

    Even if they couldn't answer, at least there would have been an attempt.

    I’d have much rather heard about squeezeplay or afterburner or cloudburst than are we getting a fifth windcharger?

    People asking about specific characters apparently haven\'t been following for a long time, of course they are gonna just give genaric comments like \"As it fits within theme of year\". So in these type of conversations we can\'t expect much (if anything) to be unveiled. So just keep your expectations down to zero to less than zero. Even other sites on other hasbro ip have long ago stopped asking about questions about specific characters.

    Considering that Kingdom artwork they showed a while showed characters like Gears and Polar Claw, I have high hopes that we'll being seeing those two in whatever the next trilogy is after Kingdom here.

    And asked as if the questioner knew better than Hasbro.

    A better question would have been if they could comment on how the choice is made for when a movie character goes to Studio or to WfC.

    Also would have liked Qs about the modular figures and if that's something they could see being a regular part of the line.

    With the full leaks of Slag I was no longer worried that there wouldn't be anymore Dinobots but it is nice to know they are determined to complete teams.

    As for a new Motormaster, that is the first I have heard but would be nice. I wonder if they would do non-combining combiner teams so they are more screen accurate. Similar to how Shatter and Dropkick were released as 2 different non-triple changing figures. I personally think the CW Constructicons were really well done for all modes while the PotP Predacons suffered a bit for the sake of Predaking.

    Those two characters were confirmed to have been cancelled during Pulsecon last year when they officially revealed that artwork. That could mean just cancelled for Kingdom and moved to the next line or scrapped all together becasue it was too hard to create a good design.

    To be clear, I did not give them that list. I mentioned there were about 19, please stick the landing. It was understood to be truthful, but in jest. Like "come on guys, let's do it". Wanted to get the conversation pointed towards how committed they were with continuing with this format and filling in these last couple blanks. Not "when, where" exactly for any of it.

    The list in the article at the end was me just putting that in there now, for the fans to digest and discuss overall, so those not as in tune with what's been happening over the last 3 years can see we are close.

    They still haven't finished:
    Autobot Targetmasters
    Decepticon Double Targetmasters
    Autobot Powermasters
    Turbomasters
    Cybertron Defense Force
    Decepticon Cassettes
    Various Micromaster teams
    Welcoming Committee
    Autobot Triple Changers

    That's a lot of lost opportunities, IMO. And yet people still want Hasbro to waste time redoing characters we just got a few years ago.

    There’s 19 on his list but that’s just the season 1 and 2 Characters. And doesn’t take into account combiners or oddballs like Hauler.

    So it feels like they didn't really reveal anything new or things most of us didn't already suspect in terms of news or information.

    Hasbro is really good at beating around or evading questions while not really answering anything definitive. They'd be great at politics. :lol

    Their response to people having difficulty getting exclusives is really discouraging. Doesn't seem like they care particularly about it at all, at least for the more desirable figures.
