New Fan Vote Incoming? Hasbro Posts Mysterious Image on Weibo Account.
A very strange “teaser” image has appeared on Hasbro’s Transformers Weibo account!
On Hasbro’s Weibo account, an image showing the silhouettes of four Decepticon Transformers has appeared, along with the following text, which we’ve translated to English
using Google our mastery of the Chinese language:
Can you recognize who the four Decepticons are in the picture below? Come and share your guesses! Once we publish the identity of these mysterious characters, you have the opportunity to decide which character will appear in 2020. WFC battles Cybertron product line!
If you can’t recognize them, we’re going to hazard a guess that they’re (clockwise from the top left) the Sharkticon Gnaw, one of the Battlechargers Runamuck and/or Runabout, the Insecticon Shrapnel, and the Targetmaster Needlenose. Interestingly, all of
these characters save for Gnaw are appearing in Wave 3 of the Transformers Trading Card Game, which ties in with the War for Cybertron: Siege toyline. Additionally, Needlenose was a candidate in the last fan vote
Hasbro ran, the results of which gave us new toys of Mirage and Impactor instead. It seems Hasbro hasn’t lost hope in that fashionista plane just yet!
So what do you make of all this? Which one of the four would you vote for, or do you have any alternate guesses as to the silhouettes’ identities? Let us know over on the Allspark forums, Facebook page, or Discord server!
