SDCC 2015

Spinning out of SDCC, The Hollywood Reporter has broken news that a new Transformers animated series – one based on Combiner Wars – will be coming to Machinima. And this time… it will be aimed at older fans. Read on below for the full details:

“The Transformers are coming to Machinima.

Hasbro, the toy company-now-play brand, has partnered with the online gamer and video platform to produce a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line.

Combiner Wars is a storyline that has been playing out across Hasbro’s toys and IDW comic books for the past year and the upcoming Activision video game Transformers: Devastation.

Insiders say it’s the first time these many synergistic elements have been combined by Hasbro to tell an overall story.

Additionally, Habsro is giving something a segment of its large Transformers audience has been demanding for years, namely an animated series aimed at an older audience.

“Our audiences are huge fans of the toy, comics, movies and video games, and for us to continue the legend with the Combiner War is a unique story-telling opportunity,” said CCA Daniel Tibbets.

Said Hasbro’s senior vp of the Transformers franchise, Tom Warner: “(Machinima is) the perfect partner to help launch a totally new kind of Transformers animation—one that, for the first time ever, is specifically designed for the teen and adult fans who’ve grown up loving the Transformers brand.”

Without going to deep into the complexities of the Transformers universe, Combiner Wars saw groups of Transformers be able to combine into one giant robot, known as a Combiner. Superion and Menasor were among the new robots that held the fate of the Transformers’ homeworld Cybertron in their hands.”

quick look up if this is there animation i think we maybe in for something at least nice https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpu6yPAFHrs
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Generation 2 Menasor is confirmed. All five Stunticons are faithful to the unreleased set.
Both Menasor and Superion are set for a release in early 2016.
Next up is Victorion and her limbs.
Her torso is Pyra Magna, a Hot Spot remold.
The helicopters (Alpha Bravo remold) are Stormclash and Skyburst
The two race cars are Jumpstream, a Breakdown remold, and Dustup, who is the Dead End remold.
The set is rounded out with Legends Groove remold, Rust Dust.
Sold as a set with a poster and card. Out “sometime next year release”
Next up, a new combiner, named Betatron.
He is formed by a Voyager class Scattorshot, a heavy remold of Silverbolt. No word on individual Technobots – he’s intended to combine with existing toys.
Next up are the store exclusives.
Toys R Us is getting Masterpiece Bluestreak (available now) and Masterpiece Starscream in October.
Target is getting the Platinum edition Blaster and Perceptor set and Trypticon. Both of those coming to Target in August.

A Q&A session followed:0

No plans for Dinobots Combiner
No plans for Predaking, or beast combiners in general.
Cannot conform MP-28 is Hound
The reason for the differences between Hasbro and Takara’s Devastators was basically cost.
The reason for not doing Prowlastator was because Hasbro wanted to give fans a G1 version of Devastator.
No plans to make toys of the Decepticon Justice Division.

Victorion looks good combined especially with those new feet and hands, plus that sword is top notch. Almost tempted to get it but will see how 2016 goes, already a lot coming out.

The individual bots are a bit meh, suppose its a purpose built combiner and meant to be the most unified/ comparable team so makes sense that they're insanely colour co ordinated
Soundwave superior. Autobots inferior

Predaking has been shot down short term as have beast combiners (likely meaning terrorcons) and no Dino combiner to compete with 3rd party. I hope this is just smoke before they get their act together because a new Predaking would be much appreciated. I think it'd follow Dev and be all voyagers

The G2 Combiners are awesome, but are not needed for the collection
Was interested in the fan made combiner until I saw the real toy - that colour scheme is not appealing at all. Do however love the new hands/feet

Scattorshot on his own without the rest of the team doesn't feel right considering their pledge to release complete sets.
Also while Scattorshot gets a new head, the combined mode doesn't - that won't work at all for Computron

Finaly official pictures are up

Now there is no sign of g2 slingshots 3rd form so i am presumeing there will not be a alt mode called pile of gold dust lol.

im disapointed in computron mode i am currently looking at as many red combiner war characters that can be used for this with out brakeing apart a original team lol.

Only one figure revealed at SDCC intrests me and that is Scattershot. He is about what I expected but I thought Hasbro would give him a new combiner head, and I thought the Technobots would be revealed but instead they change the combiner name and say Scattershot now combines with S1 Autobots???? Weird!

No interest in G2 Menasor or Superion and I am not feeling that Fan Built Fembot Combiner, the colours are horrid and 2 close to identical Alpha Bravos in the same set ... Lazy! Not for me.

So just Bruticus, Skylynx, Pipes, Chop Shop, Shockwave, Buzzsaw and Scattershot for me next year but that lets me save for more MP's and my Fans Toys Dinobots.
