Default NYCC news and new reveals

The NYCC is now on in America and the Hasbro team have been showing off a lot more upcoming items for Transformers... and releasing official images as well.
On top of this, another exclusive toy was revealed - Grotusque (remould Doublecross) with diecast Scorponok head.

From TFW - Seibertron - BWTF....

The Hasbro panel transcript (copied below) and images - plus a copy of the live video.

Quote:
First they look at the Allspark tech figures. They are aware that these toys can currently be found at retail but they wanted to give a tech demo.

They then showed two boxes of Trypticon Titan Master Crunch.

John Warden then reveals Titans Return Grotusque, the second monster bot, which was available on Hasbro Toy Shop and is now sold out. The design of the Titan Master's head is that of a sabretooth tiger. He is said to have extra deco to go with the fact that it's a special edition toy. The artwork for Grotusque is by Marcello Matere.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Is is then said that the quantity on Hasbro Toy Shop is limited but that in a month or so additional sets will be available through partner retailers.

Hasbro then reiterates when speaking about Ttans Return Arcee, how much Toysrus is a great partner.

John Warden then shows a finished Volcanicus combined. This is the first time we see the combined mode in colour. Once again, we see that Swoop has the blue chest. The Enigma of combination is shown to fit in the T-Rex mouth on the combiner chest. It is then confirmed, for those who were still unsure, that all deluxes and voyager combine in the Power of the Primes line.

For those wanting a time frame, it is then stated that all the toys required for Volcanicus should be available by late spring (ie, the second quarter) but the first wave should be available either right before Christmas, if your lucky, or early 2018.

We then see a pair of wings which John Warden says may or may not be part of the Titan Class figure coming out next (these are Predacon Divebomb's wings).

Hasbro then promotes the Earth Wars game due to Volcanicus' appearance and next month's Machinima Titans Return series which will have some humongous awesomeness in the form of Trypticon.
Product display for invited fansites, with photos here - TFW - Seibertron - BWTF... and a video of the display here.

All reveals look great, personally I will be skipping Windcharger and Rodimus Unicronus as the HFTD Windcharger from years ago imo is far superior and Rodimus Unicronus is not a character I am familiar with.

Rippersnapper looks particularly cool, love his alt mode head!

The Dinobot combiner looks horrible, like a cheap PCC one.

Others look quite good though

The Shattered Glass Rodimus looks interesting, though I think if I were to get that mould (which is likely); I'd prefer plain vanilla Rodimus Prime.

I wasn't planning on getting any Terrorcons, but Blot looks pretty cool! I always liked his colour scheme, and his claws look badass

Terrorcons looks sweet, can't wait to see Abominus (one of the G1 combiners I never had). The less said about the Dino combiner the better.....

Can't wait for the regular release for Grotusque. That helmet looks awesome.

The Terrorcons are looking great individually. I like Hun-Gurrr's stock bot mode. Hopefully this translates into a much more impressive combiner than some others...

Those Terrorcons look abysmal.

On the other hand, Volcanicus actually looks quite good when combined.

I dig the pretenders and the ones with mythical inspired beast modes, seems like that's something Hasbro can get right, unlike there non car altmodes.

I'll be passing on the other guys though.
