Transformer Q&A with the Transformers team at Hasbro
The Transfromers Brand team at Hasbro gave us (and other media outlets) the opportunity to ask 5 questions to the team. Here then, are the results of the oct 2008 Transformers Brand Q&A. IF you want to ask questions to Hasbro about transformers - leave them in the comments here and we will pick some for next time.
What's the future of the G1 reissues? Will the "Encore" line contain the Dinobots?
We are looking at doing a couple more G1 re-issues in Fall 2009, but no specific plans yet to announce - they will likely be retailer exclusives if they do make it out. As for the Encore series, that is a series that TakaraTomy does in Japan and I can't really comment on their future plans.
What's the future of the Masterpiece line? Will we see a Masterpiece Grimlock that transforms into an anatomically realistic T-Rex?
We are looking at a few options of existing Masterpiece products to bring over to the US. Also we have been in discussions with TakaraTomy on a new character for Masterpiece… so hopefully you can wait patiently for an announcement!
Will there be more Alternators?
At this time we have no plans for Alternators. We can only focus on so many things at a time and our plate is full in 2009 with Animated, Universe, and Movie.
How about the new Alternity line - will that make it to the states?
There are no plans to bring the Alternity line to the US in 2009 as there are already a lot of projects the Hasbro Transformers team are working on supporting Universe, Animated, and the new Movie.
Will classics Jetfire get reissued?
We typically won't re-issue the exact version if we do bring a character out again in Classics (see example of the new Starscream). But there are no current plans for a another Jetfire in Universe in 2009.
