Hasbro's TRANSFORMERS Q&A: The Answers!|
We've passed on 5 of your burning Transformers questions! So check out the latest scoop we've got for you this bi-monthly Q&A session with Hasbro.
Cool Toy Review: What are the chances of gestalts coming out that are more closely designed from the G1 sources? I've seen the Superion, Bruticus, and Devastator molds from the past couple of years, but they are the Energon molds and not G1 that most people want. The same mold used for two characters in the same set doesn't help either.
The characters that make up the gestalt could be released over the course of the year with a new gestalt each year. The characters could vary in size from deluxe to voyager to Ultra. A lot of people thought, or at least hoped, that Silverbolt was going to be like this. This would make for some awesome and high quality combiners. The time for collecting figures to build something bigger has gotten popular again over the past several years. Just look at the Marvel Legends and Star Wars build a droid stuff.
Hasbro: Power Core Combiners is as close as we're going to get for now. But we are always looking for new opportunities to expand on and improve our heritage play patterns.
Cool Toy Review: Will the masterpiece Skywarp be easier to get than the MP Starscream? I never saw one at any of the 9 Wal-marts in my area. As a matter of fact, I even inquired using the UPC code & none of them even had it in the system as orderable. Heck your own Hasbro representative even told me none of the stores in my region were going to get it. Of course she also had no idea what the currently shipping Star Wars figure packaging looked like. I'm in Carbondale, IL, by the way.
Hasbro: Unfortunately, we cannot give you an accurate answer to this question. Ultimately it is up to Wal-mart as to which stores receive product. We certainly recommend staying in touch with your local Wal-mart stores to see when and if they will be receiving any MP Skywarp.
