HasCon 2017 HasCon 2017

Note that date: the official Transformers Facebook page has just announced that a second HasCon will be happening September 6-8th, 2019. At the moment, no other information is available, though Hasbro thanks fans for "making (the) first HasCon a huge success". More information as it becomes available - but with us being two years out, that could well be a while. In the meantime, keep reading to see the announcement!

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!

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!

JayC had a chance to talk with the Hasbro Transformers brand team about the latest reveals at HasCon 2017 with updates on the Dinobots, Volcanicus, Predaking, Botcon & More. Read on to get some insights on the new female Dinobot, Slash, and more reveals in the full video after the jump.

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! 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!


Several pieces of character packaging art for the Dinobots had been discovered during Hascon weekend, though new member Slash was absent. Thanks to Michael Payton we have a look at Slash's art, as well as the art for Orion Pax, Optimus Prime, and the Cloudburst Decoy Suit form of Prime Master Micronus, all of which are looking quite nice! We've got those images for you in the gallery below, so click through to see them now!

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!

Though the Sunday performance of the "More Than Meets The Eye" Transformers brand team panel was more or less the same as what early arrivals saw on Friday, we did end up with a little bit new to see before Hascon wrapped up. Some spare samples were opened, permitting the Hot Rod mode of Power of The Primes Rodimus Prime to be shown off, as well as a fresh Optimus so it and Orion Pax could be displayed together. We've got photos of this thanks to Anthony from TFU.info and David "FakeEyes22" on Twitter - who also took an extra showing a sheet of paper being used to better hide incriminating info on the back of Starscream's box. SECRETS! Keep reading to see!

UPDATED with info about Prima and Megatronus! Radio Free Cybertron and the reliable Eric Crownover are at the HasCon Prime Wars Trilogy panel! It's been an interesting one so far, showing behind the scenes artwork and prototypes behind Combiner Wars, Titans Return, and Power of the Primes! Also, one of the PotP slides shows us designs for Prima and Megatronus, The Fallen ...who bear more than a small resemblance to the Leader Black Shadow/Overlord mold. Abandoned concept or upcoming exclusive? We don't know yet, but keep reading to see it all!

Eric Crownover is still at HasCon and still sending us valuable info from the show! Last night at the VIP dinner, they showed off Power of the Primes Voyager Hun-Gurrr ...whose face was covered in photos, and fans immediately began speculating was related to the Silverbolt mold going by his construction. Eric has sent some clarifications on all of that from Hasbro's John Warden - keep reading to see!
