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.)

The South Park Experience at SDCC

The San Diego Comic-Con is great at bringing things to the public they have never seen before, or giving them the chance to experience something near and dear to them. This year was no exception, particularly thanks to South Park and Comedy Central. Once again South Park was right in the middle of Comic-Con and the heart of San Diego’s Historic Gaslamp district. There attendees could wait in line and have an experience made just for South Park fans.
