Photo Gallery – Hasbro SDCC Exclusive: Voyager Class Optimus Prime

I finally got the chance to unbox one of Hasbro’s SDCC 2017 Exclusives: the Transformers The Last Knight Voyager Class Optimus Prime. The details are excellent, the figure is sturdy and easily posed, and I had a great time getting photos (much to the amusement of my neighbors, who you think would be used to seeing outdoor Transformer photo shoots by now.) See below for all the pics!

SDCC 2016 – Interview with Hasbro, Transformers Generations

As a Transformers fan who remembers sitting in a theater being blown away by the 1986 Transformers movie (and literally bursting into tears at the death of Optimus Prime…what? Don’t look at me like that, it was sad!) and a huge fan of the IDW More Than Meets The Eye comic, I’ve been very excited by the latest Transformers designs from Hasbro. We’re seeing gorgeous G1-style Transformers along with new concepts and our favorite characters from the current comics.

Have you ever wondered why some designs are chosen over others? Which characters get featured? Who’s making the decisions? Wonder no more! We got to talk with John Warden of Hasbro, part of the Transformers Generations design team, at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Sure we asked him about the design process, the decisions, and the fan input. We also asked him about whether or not the Titans Returns Soundwave comes with the tapes (we’re all about the hard-hitting news here at PG. We’re also Team Soundwave, and don’t you forget it.)
