We would like to congratulate Wheeljack on the distinction that is long overdue.

Woo Hoo! Democracy in action!
I was hoping Rodimus Prime would win Hall Of Fame this year.
Autobase Aichi has collected more photos of Cybertron Con from Weibo! Presumably still in the setup phase, the con has some interesting displays and art pieces on hand - but what you are likely more interested in is the presence of Titans Return Leader-Class Sixshot on the Generations display table! Hasbro's getting really good at parceling out reveals to their various conventions and shows, so it shouldn't surprise us too much that the official Chinese Transformers con gets at least one.

Autobase Aichi has shared images from the (currently inaccessible) 52toys Weibo account of the setup phase of Cybertron Con 2016!

Thanks to an unsourced photo posted on imgur, we have a look at the back of box for Voyager Class Megatron, seen at the Hasbro Entertainment Brands Breakfast event this morning at SDCC. The image is just slightly too small to make out the brief bio text, but what we're really interested in is the cross sell, featuring Titan Master Fangry, Deluxe Triggerhappy, Voyager Optimus Prime, and Leader Class Sixshot! Some of these had come up as leaks before, but this is our first basically official show of these upcoming toys. Keep reading for the mirrored image!
