On the RFC Reviews channel, diecast has shared a video for the Hascon "exclusive" that caught most people's attention, Titans Return Arcee. This is the latest heavy retool of Blurr featuring a bonus die-cast metal Ultra Magnus Titan Master in addition to its own Titan Master Leinad. All information so far is that this will be available again outside of the convention distribution, with the info card at the event promising major retailers. Meantime, you can watch the video embedded below to get a better look at the whole set!
While you're still recovering from your HasCon trip, it may not be the best time to tell you... but in case you need reminded: only two more weeks to TFCon USA!

This week on Radio Free: HasCon is over and we're back home. We spend much of the show recapping and sharing our thoughts of Hasbro's first convention. Did it match our expectations? Besides all of the news coming out of HasCon, we have new information from Takara-Tomy on G2 Megatron, finally! Also on the show we have our interview with John Warden and Ben Montano from Hasbro, as well as our interview with Pablo Calvo of Space Ape Games! Check it out!

Closing out the coverage for the HasCon 2017 event we have a final look at the new Transformers Generations Power of the Primes figures in all their official images glory. Get a look at Evolution Optimus Prime, Micronus with Cloudburst and the new Dinobots Grimlock, Slug, Sludge, Snarl, Swoop and the news dinofembot, Slash in the gallery after the jump.
HasCon has been and gone for the year, and by most on-hand accounts it sounds as though the show was successful at what it was trying to do. But as fans, we must ask the question core to the condition of being a fan: what about US? It seems as though we got a lot of interesting answers and even some new questions... but of course, not all the answers. Which is to be expected with NYCC around the corner, we guess - but there's so much we don't yet know about the state of Transformers for 2018. Click through as we revisit our hopes for HasCon 2017!
A Toys R Us employee who has provided good inside informationtwo times previously has come back once more to share new findings from the retailer's computer inventory system. We've got listing info showing the pricepoints of Power of The Primes, which aligns correctly with official releases we've seen already. But there's also an unexpected few other items among all of this. And the best part is that it all has "do not sell before" lockout dates, which give a clue when to expect it all! Keep reading!

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.
Back in July after SDCC, we published a quick... well, Primer on the upcoming Generations line Power of the Primes. In the wake of HasCon 2017 we've got some more information, so it's time to go back through and lay it all out, class by class. Keep reading to see!
Thanks to @preterniadotcom on Twitter for pointing this out!

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!
The third issue of the First Strike miniseries is due in shops on Wednesday, and while it might have gotten slightly overshadowed over the weekend by Hascon, it hasn't been forgotten. Via Comic Crusaders we've got an early look at the full length preview for the issue, mostly focusing on the Transformer/GI Joe team appropriating a space bridge. Look for the review of the issue coming soon, and keep reading to see the preview in the meantime!
