no pictures? bummer. i would love to have seen some of this stuff!

 

Hasbro doesn't want you, me, or anyone else too poor to attend this con to see them. I think that unless they lift this bullshit photo ban then they should just stop doing this presentation. All it does is let them laugh at those who couldnt make it.

 

Not to mention describing the slides in text form is incredibly difficult to do.

 

"WAVE 6

Will be released right after the film"

 

Yeah that tells me a lot...What the fuck is IN the wave?!?!?!

 

"Deluxe Soundwave

Vehicle and robot mode line models shown.

He will come with Laserbeak and will fit on his chest. When he comes out of his chest, he will fan out. "

 

Fascinating...He comes with Laserbeak....But WHAT DOES HE TURN INTO?! WHAT DOES HE LOOK LIKE?! Is his head the same as ROTF? Details! I need details!

 

Photo ban....Thanks for nothing, Hasb|ow. Just stop with this presentation...Seriously

It was TF Prime Soundwave, and all they had was a CAD 3D rendering. They haven't even made a clay prototype yet. They also stressed that with a lot of the Prime figures, it was in the experimental stage. There's no guarantee that part, or any, of the functionality talked about for Soundwave would actually make it into production.

 

As for the photo ban, they do it every year as a 'perk' to atendees. Just wait 6-7wks, they'll reveal the rest at SDCC.

A rude, unfair, and dickish perk. a month and a half is a hell of a long wait too. I'm sorry, but that's about as low as they can go

Don't know what to say there, it's been their M.O. for the last 6+yrs. Shouldn't come as a surprise, really.
