The final Auto Assembly takes place next weekend in Birmingham, England, and there's been some interesting developments! First is that, for the first time ever, the convention has official exclusives! AA and Roll Out Roll Call have partnered with the Collectors Club to offer a selection of this year's BotCon pieces at their shows. There is also going to be a very limited print by G1 and ReGeneration One artist Andrew Wildman available at the show! Read on for more details!
We wanted to give everyone the heads up. Hasbro revealed during the course of SDCC that their exclusives were planned to make their way on to HasbroToyShop on July 28th, which is tomorrow! If you're hoping to get yourself any of this year's offerings, be ready to join your fellow fans in monitoring the site starting tomorrow morning for stock to be activated. We were able to bring you reviews of all of these exclusives, so if you want to familiarize yourself again before the big day, click through for a list of our coverage!
San Diego Comic Con has come and gone for another year. While this summer seems to not have been as rich with new reveals as previous years, there was still plenty of news coming our way thanks to our coverage team at the show. With updates streaming through since late Wednesday evening, there's been a lot to keep up with. In case you've missed anything along the way, we made a quick-reference list with highlights from our coverage. Keep reading to have a look, and maybe find something you haven't seen yet!
Devastator has made a big impact at SDCC this year. That is, a certain Devastator cosplayer, who today visited the demo stations and was seen engaging in a fight with his electronic counterpart. The spectacle of this appears to have drawn quite a crowd, including the attention of Hasbro's John Warden, who tweeted a photo of the event. We've mirrored the image, so click through and have a look at the entertaining scene!
with some extra shots! Finally, we've got the promo shots for Victorion, the combiner voted on by fans using the Transformers app, helping to choose various details that shaped what the toys would become. Notably, it sports uniquely designed hands and feet, and a combining weapon based on the concept of the Lightning Bug weapon from the G1 episode Cosmic Rust. And these official shots should give a better idea of the intended deco, versus the photos of the hand-painted copies today. Click through to see it!
We've got the product promo photos for upcoming G1 reissues under the Platinum branding, including Trypticon, who will be released as an Amazon exclusive in the US this year. The Autobot Intel Ops set with Blaster, Perceptor and a selection of cassette characters, and the Seeker Squadron set of Ramjet, Dirge and Thrust were also shown off, and will be exclusives to other retailers this year. Keep reading to take a look!
Coming in the realm of Masterpiece, we've got the official shots of Bluestreak, available exclusively through Toy R Us, and we have our first look at Hasbro's release of Starscream using the modified Seeker body tooling released by Hasbro previously as Sunstorm and others. The release as Starscream is surely a welcome announcement for many fans of this higher end product line. Keep reading to check it out!
Next up tonight we've got promotional shots of the Clash of The Transformers RID items, featuring new recolors of this year's figures with Legion versus packs and Three-Step large figures of Bumblebee, Optimus, and Megatronus. This line is exclusive to Toys R Us, and has already started appearing at stores in a few markets outside the US. Click through to check out the pictures and official product information!
with some extra Menasor photography! Just in from Hasbro, we've got the official promotional photography for today's Combiner Wars reveals. Confirming G2 Superion and revealing for the first time G2 Menasor, a lot of excitement was created around these special boxed set items. Rounding it out we have Voyager Scattershot, a retool from Silverbolt who will form the core to the Betatron combiner. Keep reading to see the images.
From the Transformers Facebook page, we've got more Laserbeak spy reports giving us our first look at promo photography for Victorion, the Fan Built Combiner who fully debuted today at SDCC during the Hasbro Breakfast event. The vibrant colors have made photography difficult to get an accurate idea of what the deco will really look like, so these shots will probably be our best early idea. Keep reading to check out the mirrored photos!
Entertainment Earth has just posted that in association with Hasbro, they'll be handing out free diorama backdrops based on either Transformers or My Little Pony with a purchase from the EE booth at SDCC next month. The Transformers backdrop is based on the Autobot Command Center from the original cartoon, and measures 9.5 x 11 inches, making it suitable for use with a wide range of toys. Keep reading to see the images!
With Botcon now just a lingering memory and Team FunPub back safely at home, they've taken stock of the exclusives for this year and found leftovers of basically everything to make available for purchase on the club's online store. While naturally the attendee freebie figure is not among them, everything else is currently available for purchase. If you couldn't make Botcon itself but still want some of the exclusives, head on over and take advantage of the leftovers while they last! Keep reading for a full list.
