    Studio Series Reveals: Voyager Bonecrusher, Leader Megatron and Jetfire and More!

    By way of Loopaza Megastore, we can share a listing of upcoming Studio Series figures and (take educated guesses as to) their Class/Size and price-point!

    SS-19 WWII Bumblebee
    SS-20 DotM Sideswipe (the convertible)
    SS-21 Decepticon Barricade
    SS-22 Crankcase
    SS-23 Rusty Bumblebee
    SS-24 Bone Crusher (Voyager, based on price)
    SS-25 Optimus Prime (likely recolor or retool of existing mold)
    SS-26 Jetfire (apparently Leader Scale, based on price)
    SS-27 Megatron (Leader Scale, but which one is unknown, could be Dark of the Moon, or Movie 1. Less likely possibility would be RotF since we already have one or The Last Knight re-treatment...)
    SS-28 Dropkick (from Bumblebee Movie)
    SS-29 “Character B” - ID unknown!
    SS-30 Optimus Prime, presumably another recolor(?)
    SS-31 Cogman
    SS-32 Scrapmetal
    SS-33 Rampage (The RotF pogo-stick jumping “Constructicon?!)
    MPM-8 “New Character”

    Stay tuned, of course we’ll fill you in more as we learn! Perhaps we will learn more from potential reveals as London Comic Con is happening this weekend! Hmmmm

    Are there any U.K. Fans planning to attend that could help us provide coverage???

    BOTBOTS - Group Photos!

    Thanks to Hasbro for providing us additional info and images on the upcoming sub-series of Transformers that transform into all sorts of everyday items (!) from food to garage tools to items you'd find in a bathroom!

    "BotBots are mischievous little robots who came to life from everyday objects inside a shopping mall! This rare type of Transformers robot is tiny, mischievous, and great at hiding!

    Not long ago and somewhere close by, a glowing mist filled with TRANSFORMERS energy called ENERGON came down from the sky and covered a shopping mall. The things inside came to life as little TRANSFORMERS robots! These bots can hide in plain sight as everyday objects, meaning no one knows what's a bot and what's not! Mischievous, funny, and super silly, these are… BOTBOTS!

    When the Energon hit the objects inside, it made them More Than Meets the Eye. Candy, sports equipment, electronics, school supplies, and other things came to life as little Transformers robots. These robots hide in plain sight at the mall, disguised as the stuff we use everyday.

    Each BotBots character belongs to a themed team based on what kind of store they belong in.

    There are 61 unique 1-inch characters to collect in the first series of BotBots, each with their own individual personality. Like all Transformers, the characters change from an ordinary object into a little robot in just 3-5 easy steps.

    The BotBots all belong to different tribes, inspired by product types you might find in a shopping mall, including the “Sugar Shocks” (sweet treats), the “Backpack Bunch” (school equipment), the “Toilet Troop” (bathroom items), the “Techie Team” (electronic gadgets), the “Greaser Gang” (fast food), the “Shed Heads” (gardening gear), and the “Jock Squad” (sporting goods)."

    Beautiful Shelves of Toys!

    Years ago, if you would have told me I’d walk into a Walmart and see a G1 Constructicon giftset, next to a live action movie Bumblebee toy that turns into a VW Beetle, next to a beautiful modern update (Voyager/Deluxe) scale Terrorcons, next to G1 Starscream and Hot Rod... I would’ve said you were out of your mind! What a delightful sight!

    BOTBOTS ~ Revealed! ~

    In lighter Transformers news... (!) For those who may enjoy a break from the intensity of warring civil war robots: Botbots! It seems will consist of transforming robots that turn into a wide variety of household items - food, appliances, furniture (maybe!), you name it! A donut, coffee mug, a drinking cup w/ straw - what else can you discern from that drawing?! To my great delight, these appear (so far!) to be **new characters** (no signs of Starscream toaster, or Optimus Prime vacuum cleaner *yet*... I do NOt need that!)

    The image comes from a cropped slide, of a Hasbro Investor Presentation, and was uncovered and further researched by the slueths at TFW2005. They report,
    “Botbots line will consist of blindboxes of 72 characters across four waves. Line names include:

    Toilet Troop (5-Pack)
    T Team (5-Pack)
    Greaser Gang (8-Pack)
    Jock Squad (8-Pack)
    Spoiled Rottens (8-Pack)”

    Can you believe those names?! Back when first reported it, clever fans were speculating that these titles (like “Toilet Troop” for instance) were code names - like “Saturn, Earth, Venus...” planet names were used to disguise the identity of toys being made for Transformers The Last Knight toy line... As it turns out, these may be real!

    Hopefully we’ll learn more and be provided official info and images in the coming weeks to share. What do you think?! Does this peaque your interest?! What household items would you like to see become official Transformers, transforming robots?????

    The trademark application was discovered back in January
    http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/10/18/first-look-at-transformers-bot-bots-374330

    They go on to say expected official info, public release at London Comic Con next week!

    Potential Layoffs & Lawsuit Loom for Hasbro

    Some sad news coming to light for our favorite toy manufacturer and #Transformers IP owner, Hasbro. Various outlets are reporting that in anticipation of its next quarterly earnings report (where losses are expected), Hasbro may be forced to layoff a portion of its workforce. “Hasbro Inc. said that “difficult” changes are underway that affect “a single digit percentage” of the toy company’s global workforce of 5,000 employees.”

    ...
    “As part of Hasbro’s ongoing transformation we continue to make meaningful organizational changes,” said an emailed statement from company spokeswoman Julie Duffy. “While some of these changes are difficult, we must ensure we have the right teams in place with the right capabilities to lead the company into the future.”

    Source:
    http://www.providencejournal.com/news/20181017/hasbro-difficult-changes-in-progress-wont-confirm-layoffs

    In unrelated, but equally not good news, multiple business news organizations have been reporting on the filing of a class action lawsuit against the company.

    “The complaint charges Hasbro and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934...

    The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information regarding Hasbro’s business and prospects. Specifically, defendants knew or recklessly disregarded that Hasbro’s relationship with Toys “R” Us was becoming increasingly important to Hasbro’s business, as Toys “R” Us was the primary retail brick-and-mortar toy store in the United States, and that Toys “R” Us was in far worse financial condition than was being publicly reported and it would have to dramatically scale back its operations or file for bankruptcy and liquidate.

    We will all have to wait and see how this plays out and whether any of this news affects our beloved Transformers franchise.
