One more video from our Hascon VIP Dinner Event reporter, Eric Crownover. He captured the special presentation videos shown before the Hall of Fame inductions of Susan Blu and movie series producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. One was a minutes-long collection of congratulations and well wishes from celebrities and notable individuals in the world of movies, the other was 30 seconds of Arcee clips. We'll let you sort out which presentation went with which person, and then you can click through to watch the video embedded below!
Eric Crownover covered the VIP Dinner Event at Hascon this past weekend for us, and along with the panel reports and toy reveal images, he also brought us some quick video clips from presentations during the event. First up we have a tribute to the tenth anniversary of the Transformers movie series, acting as a quick retrospective of the movies - which also probably served as a decent warm-up for the Hall of Fame induction of movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura! You can find the video embedded in the post below.
Thanks to @preterniadotcom on Twitter for pointing this out! The HasCon 2017 exclusives, including Titans Return Arcee and Transforming Power Bank Optimus Prime, have all been added to HasbroToyShop with a sale date of September 20th. So those of us who didn't have a hookup at HasCon still have a shot! Keep reading for links to both figures.
Thanks to RFC's diecast, we've got a quick video on his RFC Reviews channel showing the Power of The Primes toys on display during Hascon. One detail visible in this video that seems to have largely been overlooked is an Enigma of Combination shown at Grimlock's feet. Like the various forms of Matrix included with Leader toys, the Engimas are the special accessory component for the Voyager figures that within the function are what permit them to combine with the Deluxes. You can find the video embedded below, and a screenshot showing the Enigma. Keep reading!


Thanks to Unicron.com, any of us that didn't make the trip to Hascon this weekend can now check out the Prime Wars Trilogy panel in video form on Facebook. This panels covers aspects of design in the toys, toy packaging, the current mobile games, and Machinima's efforts in bringing entries of this trilogy to animation, and that includes a look at the Titans Return series they'll be debuting in November. You can find the panel video embedded below!
