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. Click through for the embedded video!
Once again this year, I had the opportunity to chat with John Warden and Ben Montano from the Hasbro Transformers team and pick their brains about both the newly revealed things this weekend, but also burning questions that we've been saving up for just such an occasion! We'd like to extend a huge thanks to the guys from Hasbro for taking time to talk with us both on-and-off camera this weekend at Botcon! And you can click the title link now to check out our interview video embedded below.
Our on location coverage of Botcon 2016 is winding down. We'll be bringing you more in the coming days, but for now we have the last updates from the Hasbro display, featuring the alternate modes of the SDCC Titan Force set, with Fortress-Maximus-inspired Windblade redeco, exclsuive to the set Brainstorm retool of Blurr, and clear Sentinel Prime, as well as the robot modes of the Technobots set, offering close looks at the headsculpts for Strafe and Afterbreaker. Keep reading to see them all!
Just before the doors closed on this year's Botcon, the TFCC display case was updated one last time to show the Transformers side of the upcoming club exclusive GI Joe crossover set. The clear Legends Class Megatron in G2 colors as a holographic projection, and Masterpiece Ratbat are both Marvel comics tributes, especially reflected in Ratbat's deco. Also seen were late stage samples of Ramjet and Skywarp, giving us good close looks atg the head remold. Keep reading and check them out!
RAC caught the first (and, by necessity, only) appearance of Judd Nelson at BotCon! The original voice of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime had kind words for Transformers and the fandom as well as reflections on the nature of voice acting versus other formats - and some insight as to why he took the role of Hot Rod in the first place. Keep reading for highlights from the panel!
The Hall of Fame Dinner has let out at BotCon and the Hall of Fame inductees are now known! Who won the popular vote? We've got a favorite character, an underrated character, and a musical act for you, so keep reading to see!

The Platinum Edition Autobot Heroes, SDCC Titans Return set featuring the currently exclusive release of Titans Return Brainstorm, more detailed looks at Computron, RID Bisk, Ratchet, Windblade, and much more!

This year the TFCC Roundtable panel acted as more of a retrospective of the various things Fun Publications has produced during their run in organizing the convention and the fan club, with the majority of the panel time being taken showing off the figures. Finally getting to the upcoming items was subscription service 5, featuring Counterpunch, Fractyl & Scorponok, Toxitron, the previously seen Paradron Medic "Lifeline", Double Pretender Optimus, and the big reveal, Pretender Megatron using the Pretender shell tooling from Grand Maximus!

RAC and ExVee are at the BotCon Hasbro panel, and we'll be updating live as the panel continues! See panel images below. We have also posted official images of many of the products shown in the panel at the following gallery Transformers Official Images Gallery
Next up from Matt/Melllvarr's BotCon toy pile is Terrorsaur! The ill-fated Predacon features a new headsculpt on the Combiner Wars Air Raid body... but no HandFootGun. Guess it got burned up in the lava. Keep reading to see!
ExVee and RAC are still playing with Melllvarr's toys while he's at the Stan Bush concert! Next is Unit-3, a fully embodied take on infamous Beast Wars Happy Meal toy Under-3!
Based on the Streetwise mold, Unit-3 is ready for his gritty 90s reboot with his police car alt mode and triple-barrel shotgun. Keep reading to see!
Our latest piece from the generously loaned Botcon 2016 collection of RFC's Matt, aka Melllvarr is Airazor. This figure is a recolor of the so far otherwise TakaraTomy exclusive Slipstream remold of Windblade, which featured a unique head and chest sculpts, and alternate weapons. Airazor is the lowest run of all the regular souvenir figures at just 750, leaving some Tigatrons sure to have to go without their companion figures. Keep reading to check out our gallery!
