Yet another Hasbro Fan media event is behind us at Toy Fair. From this we have lots of photos of current and upcoming toys to obsess over, as we do every year. But that's simply the obvious, most easily visible takeaway from the presentation. But we learn more than that, so it's time to look back over the day and sort out the larger scope of information we've been given from what is arguably our biggest single day of reveals for the whole year. Keep reading!
The smallest gallery to share is that for the standard Masterpiece line. The newest entrant shown is the MP-17+ Prowl featuring animation-inspired deco and which it seems is due to get a same-month release by Hasbro going by indications from some of the US retailers. Also out at the show were Shadow Panther, with a copy of Cheetor out as a point of comparison. And rounding out the upcoming product was Dinobot, making most things around it look small. It seems that several other items were included in the display, but in the form of exclusives and other long-since released products to represent the line. You can check out the photos of the newer products below.
Wonderfest managed to diverge a bit from Toy Fair's presentation this year in the movie product on hand. While the Studio Series line was on full display matching Hasbro's reveal, a few of this year's Movie The Best products were out in the exhibit space too - though it's probably not too unfair to say some of them were rightly outclassed by their brand new Studio counterparts. We also get to see a little bit of Move Masterpiece among these toys, resulting in the movie offerings for this year being nicely represented. Click through to check them out!
Wonderfest is happening in Japan right now. The one day event falls just hours after the first day of Toy fair in New York, and on the Transformers side, and consistent with our earlier speculation
much the same lineup of products were on display, albeit with subtle differences. Unfortunately in Power of The Primes those differences are limited to the state of finish of the various items shown, rather than things like actual deco choices. For instance, grey prototypes of Optimal Optimus and Predaking versus color versions. Click through to see these and more!
The images are still rolling out of Toy Fair 2018. Here, we have even more Transformers showroom images featuring the mighty PREDAKING, and more. Keep checking back for more coverage from Toy Fair 2018.
Rounding out the Radio Free Cybertron Twitter
photos from the Hasbro show room (for now) we have images of the Cyberverse products on display, including giving us a first look at the line's packaging. Size classes are represented across the line, from Scout, to Warrior, to Ultra and Ultimate, letting you see how the designs of each price point compare, particularly in terms of their gimmicks. You can find all those photos below, and there will be more updates to come throughout the day, so stat tuned!

Stay tuned for updates as they happen from the event. Keep checking back, we will be posting updates and images as soon as they are available.
Tomorrow is the day! New York Toy Fair 2018 is finally here, and we go into it with a great deal of uncertainty. What happens with the Transformers movie franchise in stasis lock? Are Cyberverse
and Evergreen really going to run two parallel toylines with clashing and overlapping pricepoints using basically the same character models? But what we are certain about is that there are things that we could
be shown tomorrow that RAC would love to see... and won't. Keep reading to find out what they are!
With the reveal of TakaraTomy's version of Power of The Primes came both disappointment, and word of a new drive to bring the Transformers brand closer together across the global market. Power of The Primes was the first case where this was made a specific talking point, but the recent The Last Knight line showed much the same philosophy, featuring toys unchanged from the Hasbro releases. For better or worse, this trend looks like it's here to stay, and a good sign of that is Japan's Winter Wonderfest. Keep reading to find out more!

The ToysWalker page on Facebook has posted some coverage of the Toy Soul event happening right now in Hong Kong, including the Flame Toys display featuring early looks at a number of new licensed Transformers products they're working on. The previously teased Tarn is on display in full, though still just in prototype grey. Alongside is a prototype for an IDW-inspired Star Saber - and if you didn't think Star Saber looked like a Gundam already, you sure will now. A series of simpler figures or possibly model kits consisting of highly stylized redesigns of G1 characters was also on show today. Click through to see the gallery of all the Transformers merchandise!
In what will probably be our final look at Tokyo Comic Con for this year's event, we've got some additional photos from tagoal
on Twitter. Among the highlights are another sighting of the movie series diorama highlighting key moments from the various films. We also get to see some of the 2018 series of Movie The Best with Hound, Jetfire, ROTF Optimus, and Nemesis Prime. A quick look at the G-Shock watches and another pass over the Masterpieces and Street Fighter crossovers rounds out this last piece of coverage. You can find all that below in the gallery!
