Transformers Q&A - #5 2010

The Hasbro Transformers team has sent us answers to our questions for this round of the official Q&A. Check it out:

Transformers Q&A #5 (2010)

Preserve: When I was little, one year for Halloween I dressed as the GoBot Spay-C and the next year as the Rock Lord Nuggit - both of which naturally transformed! Does the team have any similar fun memories of their Halloweens from long ago?
Hasbro: The team certainly has a lot of great past Halloween memories that involve Transformers and of course other great properties that we cannot mention in this Q&A! Some of them include creating an Optimus Prime costume out of cardboard boxes and faking the conversion into a truck, while others used a lot of silver body paint to try and become the evil Megatron! Of course some members of our team still like to dress up for Halloween, but we will save those issues for another Q&A session!

Preserve: At times, instead of being a new character, a redeco is a version of the 1st mold using a mission-specific color, such as Roadbuster Ultra Magnus. Does this consideration have anything to do with the size classes, as in, a figure who is not of the top-tier would be a tough sell in the Leader size? I've been thinking about this because of Leader Starscream - the obvious repaints are Thundercracker or Skywarp, but past examples would show we might get a "Deep Star Starscream" instead of one of these other characters.
Hasbro: A lot of our decision making for redecos has a lot to do with the class size of a figure. Utlimately, as the price point increases, we want to make sure that the character we are releasing is recognizable to kids. However, it is not to say that at some point in time we would not do an exclusive of a lower-tiered character such as Leader Thundercracker or Skywarp, we just would not issue this as part of the main line assortments.




Thanks to the team for the great answers!
