At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, TFviews was invited to conduct a ten-minute interview with Hasbro Transformers team members Jerry Jivoin (Transformers seniorÂ brand director of marketing and toy develoment) and John Warden (Transformers design manager), the only restriction being that we had to publish it verbatim… which is our policy anyway, so of course we agreed. Friend of the site Maradona conducted this interview earlier today atÂ the Hasbro booth in the SDCC exhibit hall. Despite someone screaming in the background, because it wouldn’t be Comic-Con without someone being inappropriately in your space one way or another, TFviews.com presents our interview with the Hasbro Transformers.

Here’s an official look at all the stuff Hasbro revealed today at San Diego Comic Con during the Hasbro Transformers panel.
Combiner Wars Victorion (Updated), G2 Superion, G2 Menasor (Updated), and Voyager-class Scattorshot.
Robots in DisguiseÂ – Clash of the Transformers TRU-exclusives.
PlatinumÂ Series Blaster & Perceptor set, Platinum Series Trypticon, and Platinum Series Seeker Squadron.
Masterpiece Bluestreak, and Masterpiece Starscream.
Just received news from friend of the site Bikerscout at the Hasbro Transformers panel that Hasbro will be doing not just aÂ Combiner WarsÂ G2 Superion box set, but also a G2 Menasor box set! All 3 box sets – Victorion, G2 Superion, and G2 Menasor – will have a collector card and poster. Long-time fans will remember that the original G2 Menasor was never actually released, only photos have been seen, so this is a great get.
Update: now we’re hearing that Perceptor and Blaster are next up to get the Platinum Edition treatment and areÂ exclusive to Target, possibly as a set.
Even further, Machinima is partnering with Hasbro for a Transformers Combiner Wars animated project.
CW will be getting Scattorshot as a remold of Silverbolt, but combined form will be Betatron and appears there won’t be other Technobots coming with him.
San Diego Comic-Con is just a day away, and one of the biggest Hasbro exclusives this year is “Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Devastator Special Edition Action Figure” – I thought the Combiner Hunters 3-pack had a long name, but yikes! This version of the Titan-class Devastator has a differentÂ face design based on his G1 toy rather than the cartoon, sports vac-metalized parts, and additional paint and pre-applied stickers. It’s exclusive toÂ SDCC at the HasbroToyShop booth #3329, with a limited number made available on HasbroToyShop.com after the con. Â Read on for more. Or don’t, but you’ll be sorry because Devastator is worth the look, that’s why I used the comparison to Superion there as the lead image instead of a standard headshot. Continue reading
San Diego Comic-Con is this week, and one of Hasbro’s Transformers con-exclusive sets is the lengthily-titledÂ Transformers Generations: Combiner Wars Combiner Hunters Action Figure Collection. The set is a trio of fembots – Arcee, Chromia, and Windblade – in exclusive new paintjobs sporting giant combiner-slaying weapons, making this a companion piece to this year’s bigÂ SDCC HTS exclusive-design Devastator. The Combiner Hunters title is also a one-shot IDW comic book, and a special variant of it will be given to fans who purchase the set at SDCC (while supplies last). Hasbro’s SRP on it is $75, available at SDCC via the HasbroToyShop booth #3329 and in limited quantities after the convention at HasbroToyShop.com. With 3 hard-to-find molds sporting new looks as they threaten combiners, it’s got some charm. Read on to learn more.Â Continue reading
That’s quite a title for a product! But it’s such a fun product that who cares.
The KRE-O Transformers Cybertron High KREON Class of 1985 30-Pack is exclusive to San Diego Comic Con 2015 at the HasbroToyShop booth (#3329) for SRP of $60, and a limited quantity will be made available on HasbroToyShop.com after the show as well.
It’s another yearbook, 30 more characters introduced in the Transformers brand 30 years ago, which means this time it’s harkening back to 1985. Unlike last year’s inaugural KREO Class of ’84 set, this new Class of ’85 set has a lot more style, and calls back to some 1985 gems like Jolt cola (“Volt Cola”), The Goonies (the treasure map), and several pieces from Back to the Future (the Jetfire Be Good song disc, the Grays Sports Almanac, the flier with the newspaper front page about the clock tower).
