Hasbro Lets YOU Decide the Next Titan for 2017
In addition to the other big reveals, Hasbro announced something today that is probably one of the biggest things yet for Transformers fans. They are putting the fate of the next Titan class figure in YOUR hands. A poll will determine which out of the 3 Titan sized characters will get a toy in 2017. Trypticon, Scorponok or Omega Supreme. I have to admit this is a pretty tough choice. Read below for more details as well as a letter directly from Hasbro.
Dear Transformers fans,
We’re excited to share with you today some news about the future of the Transformers line, including another chance for fans to have their voices heard!
At New York Comic Con last month, Transformers fans were officially introduced to the new chapter in the Transformers Generations Prime Wars Trilogy, TITANS RETURN! The reaction to the new figures and the Titan Master system has been great, but some fans were wondering where the Titans in TITANS RETURN were. We can now officially confirm that TITAN SCALE FORTRESS MAXIMUS will be available in Fall 2016, the first Titan Scale figure in the TITANS RETURN line!
The first…but not the last! We’re turning to our fans to help us determine which titanic character from Transformers history should be the next Titan Scale figure for Fall 2017. Starting Tuesday, November 24th on the official Transformers Facebook Page (Facebook.com/Transformers), fans will be able to cast a vote for which of the following fan-favorite characters should be added to the line:
– Omega Supreme
Starting today, fans will be treated to campaign-style posts featuring each of the three characters, leading up to Tuesday’s official voting post, which will be active from 10:00 am PST to 12:00 am PST. Fans will be able to vote in the comments section.
Additionally, this will be the first Transformers Fan Vote that will include fans from China. Chinese fans will be voting on WeChat, and their vote totals will be joined with the Facebook vote totals to determine the winner, whose identity will be shared with fans in the near future.
In addition to the fan vote, we’re also happy to share with you some new figure images on our FTP, including new Transformers: Robots in Disguise Mini-Cons, the hotly anticipated Transformers Generations: Titans Return Leader Class Power Master Optimus Prime, Transformers Generations: Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus Series Pack, and the brand new line of Transformers Generations Alt-Modes, featuring classic G1 styling and fun and innovative instant conversions!
