Today Hasbro unveiled additional event details of the 2016 TRANSFORMERS Cybertron Con, and the lineup of writers, designers, voice actors and limited edition merchandise is sure to get Transformers fans excited!
Hosted at the Shanghaimart Expo in Shanghai from July 29th to 31st, the convention will be the biggest Transformers fan celebration ever held in China.
Comic-Con's official website has started filling in schedule information for the many numerous panels that will be occurring at SDCC a little later this month. Thus far Thursday is the only day showing Transformers-relevant events, for which three are currently set to take place.
Of particular note is that so far none of the panels listed give any specific indication of product reveals. Will there be more panels revealed for the weekend, or might Hasbro be planning a fan media event outside the walls of SDCC to handle this? We'll find out pretty soon. Meanwhile, keep reading to see the schedule information!
It looks like one of the Hasbro exclusives for San Diego Comic Con may have leaked. While it's not an image of the expected Fortress Maximus exclusive, it still holds some Transformers relevance. Posted by vincentzl on the ACToys boards, we have a number of images showing a new GI Joe crossover set!
This features a Powerglide-colored Rattler, and Soundwave HISS tank for the Transformers components, paired with a Scarlett and Zartan, respectively. The Soundwave-HISS also features some character specific new parts for its missile rack. We have the photos mirrored, so keep reading to see it all!
This year, Botcon attendees had a chance to purchase a sticker sheet to upgrade retail Combiner Wars Silverbolt, Prowl, and Ironhide so they could form a Magnaboss combiner along with Tigatron and Unit-3. Fun Publications has announced today that another run of those stickers will be happening for anyone who missed out. Plus, the Rubber Duckie souvenir item will also be produced again, and both should be available on the club store next week. They also added a reminder that the stickers include eyes for TM3 Megatron's dragon mode and provided a picture, which you can see below!
Since seeing the first packaged samples of Titans Return products at Toy Fair this year, one lingering question has been presented: Where are the comic books? You may recall last year that the initial wave of Combiner Wars product did not feature comics, because an international packaging variant was used to move product to shelves more quickly. But we weren't sure if this was the case for Titans Return. During the course of Botcon 2016 I had the chance to ask Hasbro's reps, and you can keep reading to find out their answer!
For everyone who couldn't make Botcon 2016 this year - or for anyone who did and wants a second look - we have the full presentation of the Hasbro Product Preview Panel here for your enjoyment. During this panel we saw upcoming items from Robots in Disguise, Combiner Wars, and of course Titans Return, plus a bit more. Most everything shown went in the display cases right after, but you should watch until the end, since one special teaser was snuck in that we may not see again for a while.
