Just up, are more looks at the new Transformers products for 2016 and BEYOND! We have more images from the showroom that featured sooo many little Titan Masters, it was hard to get them all. Hopefully, these new batch of images will give you a better look at Transformers Titans Return, Robots In Disguise Fortress Maximus and everything in the Hasbro Showroom 2 gallery after the jump.



First looks at the new Transformers for 2016! Check out the first batch of images are just in from Toy Fair 2016! Get a look at Transformers Titans Return, Robots In Disguise Fortress Maximus and more from the Hasbro showroom in the gallery below. We will be posting more images later so keep checking back.



The Winter Wonderfest 2016 is over, but it certainly didn't go without some good stuff to show. In the time since we reported last night, more photos have been posted from the event showing more detail on Masterpiece Optimus Primal, such as the furry appearance derived entirely through paint apps. We also have more detail shots of Blast Off and the Combaticons, including another look at their color promo poster, and new tonight we have showings from Prime 1 Studios with an array of movie-inspired statues, and another appearance of Heroes of Steel Optimus. Click through to see it all, along with a full list of photo credits!



In the David Kaye-voiced promo video we reported on a short time ago, between the series of slides of character art for the Botcon 2016 box set exclusives and the date and location slide for Botcon, an interesting bit of art was briefly seen. This quick image depicted Megatron, but with features of the visible portion of the body matching original RID Megatron/Car Robots Gigatron. In a recent interview, Pete Sinclair revealed that the "centerpiece" of the souvenir assortment would be something everyone would want to get their hands on. So does this tell us why? See the image and more details below!



That special time of year is quickly approaching again. Toy Fair 2016 is happening as always in New York, beginning with Hasbro's fan media event on Saturday, February 13th. But with everything Hasbro has already shown us via NYCC and a special conference call in November, what is there to be revealed next month? How much more could there be for us to see that hasn't already been shown to us, especially since Combiner Wars is now shifting to the sidelines and Titans Return hasn't even begun yet? Keep reading to find out some of what we think we might see newly revealed!



Yesterday we got a look at packaging art for the box set. Today via Twitter came the reveal of the individual character art for the Predacon combiner team. As with the box itself, this art is by Marcelo Matere and hews very closely to the style of retail Combiner Wars merchandise. Along with this is a new image of Ravage, depicting the current production sample, which should be a good indicator of the final actual colors of the toy. Finally, another e-mail went out today with a few more updates, including the reveal of an exclusive toy only for Golden Ticket registrants. Read on for details!



The BotCon Twitter has posted an image of the Predacus package art! It's very much in keeping with the rest of the boxart for the Combiner Wars giftsets, both because of its matching trade dress and also because Combiner Wars artist Marcelo Matere provided the artwork. IDW's Josh Perez provided color for the piece - keep reading to check it out!



Cybercast host G1 Hexatron has posted a couple new images from the BotCon 2016 figure set to Facebook! Today we have new looks at Ravage, Cicadacon, and Ramhorn in their vehicle modes, and our first look at the official art for Ram Horn. Looks pretty good! Keep reading to have a look for yourself.



Coinciding with the reveal of the combined form of the 2016 exclusive box set figures today, Fun Publications has sent out an e-mail to let people know that registration for Botcon 2016 is planned to start next week. While a specific day is not indicated, the message does promise alerts by e-mail and social media when everything is ready to go. But for anyone who's been around for a pre-reg cycle, you'll know it's pretty hard to miss once it gets going. You can click through to read the text of the update message, quoted below in the full article.



BotCon's official representative to Seibertron has posted there the first image of Predacus, the combined form of Tripredacus Council members Cicadacon, Seaclamp, and Ramhorn plus their agents Tarantulas and Ravage. The deco shown does a nice job of both breaking up the red and silver and tying in Tarantulas and Ravage to Predacus' color scheme. Keep reading to see!



The official Botcon Facebook page has posted an update just a short time ago relating the news that Alec Willows will no longer be attending Botcon this year, citing a conflicting engagement. Known to Transformers fans as the voice of Tarantulas in Beast Wars, had he been able to attend, it would have been his first appearance at Botcon since the year 2000. Click through if you'd like to read the original announcement, which we've quoted below.



Tickets to the Birmingham, England convention TFNation will be going on sale at none (local UK time) on Friday! The fan organized and run con will be happening August 19th-21st at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel and tickets will be sold exclusively through their site. Keep reading for details!



Seibertron has posted a note from the Transformer Collector's Club's Brian Savage, wishing everyone a happy holiday and announcing that BotCon 2016 registration will begin in January. So if you've been holding back that money just in case the registration went live around the holidays, go get your kids a couple more presents and keep reading to see the announcement!



Botcon.com has posted the announcement today that Scott McNeil will be attending as a guest at Botcon 2016 in Louisville. While a complete listing of Scott's voice roles would occupy more space than the observable universe, naturally he's most relevant for his work on Beast Wars with four major characters to his name - and one minor role that happens to be fairly important to this year's exclusive box set: Tripredacus Council member Cicadacon. This will be Scott's seventh Botcon appearance.



Fun Publications has released the brochure for Botcon 2016, taking place in early April in Lexington, Kentucky. As such we now have the pricing info for the various convention packages, featuring a primus Package set at $399 - a reduction from the cost of 2015's box set. As well we now know what form the tour events will take, as well as some updated policy related in the brochure that everyone should make sure to be aware of. Keep reading for all the details!
