HasCon is almost upon us, and Hasbro's been teasing a lot
of things that we may see this Friday. (And so have the leakers in China!) Hasbro's 2018 offerings are on the horizon and there's a ton of blanks to fill in. So what do we hope to see? A few subjects came to mind, and we're counting them down in the ever-popular listicle format. (But no slideshows - they're terrible
.) Keep reading to see!
We got the startings of a new Transformers Fan Club last winter with a mailing list Hasbro was assembling... but it's been dormant since then. But it looks like the new Club could be on the horizon! To be honest, there's a lot

Thanks to S250 others this week who have helped piece together some news that Rapido very well may be one of the BotCon 2010 exclusive action figures being offered this year. Rumors of a G2 theme have been supported recent by S250 on his twitter account as well. It is believed that Repido will be a repaint of the Classics Prowl action figure.
