Kicking off Hasbro’s brand presentations today were the Transformers. Starting with the Titan class winner Trypticon, the brand team then covered Robots In Disguise and the latest in Generations toys. Below are my notes from the presentation.
We were shown an early design preview of Trypticon – then moved into Robots in Disguise.

On the Generations side of the brand we were shown a preview of the upcoming mobile game, Transformers Earth Wars. This as announced earlier this week.
We were then treated to a preview of the upcoming Fortress Maximum figure. Even bigger than the G1 counterpart, the new figure includes lights and sounds. In city mode you can connect other leader class Transformers, making is bigger and awesomer.
As in G1, Fortress Maximus’ head is Cerebros with his head being Emissary (sorry Spike)
