    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

    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.

    ...Older (hopefully!) fans who frequent YouTube for #Transformers reviews will likely recognize the wild and whacky “Thew” and his “10 Shots, 10 Bots Drunken Challenge” and multitude of reviews over the years. He recently took to Twitter to share two new stock photos of upcoming Siege toys which we have not seen in package before!

    New #BumblebeeMovie New Toys @ NYCC

    At New York Comic Con 2018 Hasbro also revealed several new Energon Igniters toys, and 1-Step changers. There, we saw one Shatter figure that turns into the red muscle-car and another that turns into the jet. They also displayed Blitzwing (a recolor of RotF Megatron) but being that we’ve already seen his jet form, it gives us hope that we’ll see Blitzwing > TRIPLE changer in the upcoming film. We shall see.

    Cyberverse on Display at NYCC

    Although Generations Siege was the highlight (for me) it wasn’t the only new Transformers products unveiled at New York Comic Con. Warrior Class Slipstream, Hot Rod and Wheeljack, as well as all kinds of new Scout Class toys. Intended for the younger ones, it’s obvious this line is just getting started.

    The Original Primes - Who is Megatronus?

    A fascinating depiction of his back story is told in recent IDW comics (Optimus Prime Series specifically) but I don’t want to ruin the surprise! You really should read that for yourself. Now, let’s take a look at what the Covenant of Primus has to say about him...

    “A warrior in the mold of Prima, Megatronus was his dark antithesis. He was also the most complex of all the Primes, caught between warring impulses of immense passion that never allowed him peace. His dedication to Primus was unswerving, but faced with Primus’s nature on a daily basis, and Prima’s emulation of it, he could not help but see himself as an outsider, forever damned by the very powers that gave him such terrifying strength. His ruthlessness, ambition, conviction and ability to take any course of action gave him near limitless potential.

    At the same time, he felt these qualities earned him the disfavor of the other Primes - he was too like Unicron. They turned their gaze away when his burning visage confronted them. It haunted him. He had done nothing wrong, never did, and yet he felt he was unworthy. The injustice of it scored his spirit. It seemed that he took on the burdens of darkness at his own expense while the rest could feel assured of their rightness, not having to soil their hands with grim compromises. He was too proud to recognize how vulnerable this left him as he could never admit any weakness. He covered his fears with zealotry. Even with those closest to him - Maximo, Solus, Micronus, and Onyx - he could blow hot or cold depending on how his paranoia fared. He was unstable.

    His personal artifact was crafted for him later by Solus Prime at his request and design. The Requiem Blaster was a weapon that drew on the burning core of distant suns - casting beams that were of such an intensely focused plasma that no material could survive their passage.”

    There have been several Megatronus toys through Transformers history, this the latest installment. Now whether this “Prime Master” cube bestows the power of Megatronus or his actual life force/essence, is, well up to your imagination. How do you see it?
