Robots In Disguise! That's the name of the new Transformers show, but little was spoken of this new endeavor. Instead, the final items for Age of Extinction along with a smattering of new Generations product were shown including the big winner, Combiner Wars. 5-piece Scramble City-style combiners of Menasor and Defensor were shown, bringing you Stunticons and Protectobots. The torso are Voyager-class while the limbs - each of which can pull double-duty as an arm or a leg - are Deluxe-class toys.

One of the really exciting things in the gallery below was Nightprowler, an unreleased toy which - as you can see - you could just reach out and grab right off a display of otherwise typical toys. It had hot glue on his feet preventing a full transformation but it was nice to see it and the creepy bug mode head. The breakfast was also the world debut of the aforementioned combiner teams, as well as some of the Transformers Angry Birds product.
Arcee, Chromia, and other figures were shown on the show floor but the big takeaway is that Hasbro is aware of third-party items, and in 2015 they'll be making that kind of thing for you much more cheaply. So start saving - it's going to be an expensive year!
