While the "Generations" segment of the Transformers toy line has moved away from Combiners, the younger skewing "Robots in Disguise" is just getting started with them!

The first is "Ultrabee" who is made up of the core Team Bumblebee members: Bumblebee, Grimlock, Strongarm and Sideswipe.

Hasbro News: "Power of the Primes" voting winner announced

After much anticipation, Hasbro announced the winner of its "Power of the Primes" vote during today's Toy Fair 2017 presentation. The winner is the Boss Monkey himself, Optimus Primal! Many were surprised that Optimus Primal beat out other characters such as Star Saber and Deathsaurus. However, do not despair! Just because a character does not win the vote, that does not mean they will never be made into a toy. As "Combiner Wars" and "Titans Return" have shown us, Hasbro is mining the history of Transformers in unexpected ways for "Generations".
