Botcon 2015: Hasbro Reveals More Transformers Coming to Shelves
At this weekend’s Botcon, Hasbro revealed its upcoming Transformers releases for 2015 and early 2016. The releases include numerous waves for their Generations Combiner Wars line of toys that ties into the IDW Publishing comic series, as well as more figures from their Robots in Disguise line of figures.
The figures allow numerous figures who haven’t traditionally combined to be able to, playing off the current storyline.
Check out below for each of the coming waves.
Transformers Generations Combiner Wars
Out later in 2015… Galvatronus!? What Gestalt combination is this? The line of figures includes lots of classics updated including Ironhide, Starscream, Skywarp, Rodimus, Prowl, Mirage, Sunstreaker, and a new Optimus Prime dubbed “Binary Armor.”
Out in 2016, this first wave of the year features Bruticus, including Brawl, Blastoff, Swindle, Onslaught,and Vortex. There’s another version of Skywarp it looks like, as well as Buzzsaw, Chopshop, and Pipes. But even better…. Shockwave!
The second wave for 2016 features a new combiner named Sky Reign. It’s made up of the various releases for this wave except one it looks like. Sky Reign features Hound, Smokescreen, Trailbreaker, Wheeljack, and Skylynx. Wreckgar is also being released!
Robot in Disguise
There’s a line of figures featuring Alpine, Night Ops, Sideswipe, Gold Armor Grimlock and Night Ops Bumblbee, and another Bumblebee with a slightly different color scheme than currently on the show.
No idea what these are, but it looks like a new line of figures with a rather cool look to them.
If you’re a fan of Transformers, it looks like Hasbro will continue to drain your wallet well into 2016. There’s quite a few figures I’d love to get.
