Create a New Combiner Transformer in Next Hasbro “Fan Built Bot” Poll

Transformers Age Of Extinction app 1

Hasbro’s upcoming “Fan Built” poll takes it to the next level. This time around, you won’t just be designing one bot – you’ll take part in creating a Combiner, with all the vehicles that comprise it.

And, instead of using traditional web polls, Hasbro will be updating their existing Transformers: Age of Extinction apps (on iOS and Android) to incorporate the design questions. Over the course of three weekly stages, you’ll get to determine the features of the new Combiner, including the types of vehicles involved, the faction it will join, and eventually the name of the new character. And as they did with Windblade, Hasbro will release the Combiner as a toy, in 2016.

Stay tuned for an official launch date, and in the meantime download the app to play the Transformers: Age of Extinction games and to view movie content. Roll out!

Soapbox Sunday: Did Hasbro Miss Their Best Chance to Release the Marvel Legends Bulldozer?

The Wrecking Crew

In just a couple of weeks, it will have been two years since Hasbro first showed us the Wrecker and Bulldozer, and gave Wrecking Crew fans the hope of completing that foursome in their Marvel Legends collections. We had gotten Thunderball and Piledriver as variant swaps in an earlier wave, and the plan was to do the same for the remaining pair by the middle of 2013.

But while the Wrecker made it to shelves, retailers threw Hasbro a curveball, necessitating a rebranding plan to tie Marvel Legends more closely to the Marvel movies. And we’ve been waiting for the fourth and final member of the Wrecking Crew ever since.

This begs the question – did Hasbro already miss their best chance to release the Marvel Legends Bulldozer?
