Hasbro Interview at HasCon 2017

BWTF was fortunate enough to have the chance to interview Ben Montano and John Warden from the Transformers brand team at HasCon 2017. Unfortunately it was very loud in the area we stood in so a lot of words were lost in the transcription (hence the "..."). However, enough came through that the context of the answers is clear. Some chunks of this interview that were more difficult to fully understand were not included in the transcript below.

Interview: Ceno Kibble & Cassy Sark from Mayhem Mekanics

Mayhem Mekanics is a new up and coming toy company currently in the process of trying to launch its first toy line: The Unrustable Ba$tards! Imagine a robot biker gang with transformation, awesome sculpting, weapons everywhere and unique designs and you have the Unrustable Ba$tards! BWTF interviewed some of the minds behind the line. Check out the interview below:

1. What inspired the original concept for this gang? Why bikers instead of army guys or martial arts robots?
