Create a New Transformer for Combiner Wars Info & Transformers:Year of the Goat Sets


Fans Can Create an All New Transformer in “Fan Built Combiner Poll” From 23 January 2015

Hey Transformers fans, how do you find the Combiner Wars series so far? Personally I like them. I love the G1 style. They bring back lots of memories. I can't wait to get Menasor to battle Superion. But what's next beyond those two? Defensor possibly, maybe Bruticus. How about something new. Something which we all can help create. Read on to find out more. 

TRANSFORMERS fans around the world are invited to help create a new character for the popular TRANSFORMERS BRAND – but not just any character. Following on the heels of the 30thanniversary “Fan Built Bot” poll, which led to the fan-assisted creation of the popular new AUTOBOT character, WINDBLADE, Hasbro, Inc. is launching the new “Fan Built Combiner” poll. This crowdsourcing project seeks fan input to create a new team of TRANSFORMERS robots that will combine into one giant new character in celebration of the theme of the 2015 TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS line, COMBINER WARS!

Starting Friday, January 23, 2015, the official TRANSFORMERS brand app (formerly known as the official TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION app) will be updated and fans will be able to log-in and answer a round of questions to help shape the identity of the new Combiner characters. The Fan Built Combiner poll will allow fans to determine everything from the types of vehicles involved, to whether the characters will be AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS, and eventually the name of the new character. Voting for each round will be open for one week, after which the results will be announced and a new round of voting will begin the following week, with three rounds of questions in all. A full reveal of the new Fan Built Combiner is expected later this year, with the character available as a toy in 2016.

“The first ‘Fan Built Bot’ effort was massive, resulting in the creation of WINDBLADE who has her own widely popular comic series from IDW Publishing and toy product,” said Tom Warner, senior vice president of the TRANSFORMERS franchise at Hasbro. “With the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS line celebrating the venerable COMBINER characters from throughout TRANSFORMERS history this year, this is the perfect time to let fans help create something even bigger than a new TRANSFORMERS character — a Combiner team that will become part of TRANSFORMERS lore.”

The new “Fan Built Combiner” character will be part of the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS toy line. Like all the toys in the line, which are available in stores this month, the new Combiner figure will be able to mix-and-match limbs with other figures in the line so kids and fans can create their own custom TRANSFORMERS COMBINERS figures.

To participate in the vote, fans will need to download the free official TRANSFORMERS brand app on iOS [] and Android []. Starting with the Fan Built Combiner update onJanuary 23, the refreshed app will become the premiere destination for TRANSFORMERS fans and will feature first-look and behind-the-scenes images and information on new TRANSFORMERS: GENERATIONS toys.

Transformers: Year of the Goat Sets

Die-hard fans can get their hands on two TRANSFORMERS PLATINUM EDITION sets at Toys’R’Us and selected stores. Celebrate the Year of the Goat this Lunar New Year with exclusive figurines – TRANSFORMERS PLATINUM EDITION OPTIMUS PRIME and TRANSFORMERS PLATINUM EDITION SOUNDWAVE. Those who are born in the Year of the Goat are calm, dependable and like being in groups. Unafraid to defend their opinions, Goats live life as if it were a form of art, qualities found in both Optimus Prime and Soundwave.

Optimus Prime

In the face of danger, one can count on AUTOBOT leader, Optimus Prime, and the group of heroic AUTOBOTS that serve under his command. The fearless leader is not afraid to strike back at those who threatens the peace he has long thought possible, making his legacy a masterpiece. The TRANSFORMERS PLATINUM EDITION OPTIMUS PRIME figure has a weapon for any kind of combat, ranging from a saber and blaster for one-on-one fights to any type of launcher to clear a room. He also converts from robot mode to a battle station and retails for $179.90.


There is also SOUNDWAVE, the DECEPTICON signal-stealer who is one of the few allies that MEGATRON trusts. Together with his group of cassette spies: DECEPTICON Frenzy, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak, Ravage and DECEPTICON Rumble, they are one of the most feared DECEPTION units. The crackling static of an encrypted transmission is like music to the audio processors of the TRANSFORMERS PLATINUM EDITION SOUNDWAVE which retails for $219.90.
