SDCC 2012 - Transformers Prime Display at Wednesday Night Preview Shows Off Thundertron
Jack Q - Wednesday, July 11, 2012


The second part of our walkaround of the Hasbro display area includes the Transformers Prime toyline. Not really any surprises here unless you count Thundertron, which makes its debut in October 2012 for $19.99. Unfortunately Ultra Magnus and Skyquake have not been sited, but be sure to check out the entire display in our gallery.

Yeah, I wouldn't kick a Camaro out of the garage myself but I prefer a Mustang by a long stretch. And absolutely. In the last month before Christmas Bumblebee was a no show in my area, and in the last week there were no TFs anywhere. I went to Target and they had 1 FAB Frenzy left. I passed on ... read more

Nah, Bumblebee was a fad and nothing more,as for the new camero it does it on its own. Though I never wanted one myself, I'm more of a Mustang owner myself

Rob is onto something. I think kids may be over it now but at one point, BB was the IT character like Optimus Prime is to most of us. And all of the new Camaro's sold since then probably had a little help from the movies. Hell, i want one and i don't like Bumblebee.

And I still remember Christmas 2007 when there was nary a dan Bumblebee to be found. I eventually had to get a Premium series BB. Seriously, the Target 2 packs disappeared fast, FABs were empty, no Bumblebee of any kind anywhere. I never thought at that time I'd come to prefer it that way....

Who said anything about cry, I said clamor. As in getting all excited and yelling his name upon site. BB and John Cena who they always pronounce 'DON DENA' But like I said, over saturated.

How can they cry about not getting a BB? Every TRU I go to has at least 30 of them in at least 4 different series types. That's like going to the supermarket and crying there's no ice cream

I've never heard a kid cry because they didn't have a Bumblebee, Skywarp on the other hand....

See it's the exact opposite here. I can hear kids clamoring for BB before I even get to the aisle. They over saturated that.

Yes you can and so can I, I still remember when the 2007 toys came out, a dad showed a Bumblebee to his son, and his son said no he wanted Barricade instead. So that is how I know all this about BB is BS. Hopefully the retailers will just too the Bumblebee's on the death shelves of clearance t... read more

Groupon, well known broker of local discounts, coupons and such, today has a listing up for the Providence area featuring admission to HasCon. Hasbro's convention takes place in about three weeks, starting September 8th. Right now you can go through Groupon and get three-day adult admission to the event for as low as $85 - almost half off the original purchase price. Single day adult tickets can be had as low as $30, a full 50% off the listed pricing! For locals this is a significant deal, but everyone else still needs to think of travel and hotel costs for visiting the show, which far outstrip the admission costs. You can find a link to the deal page below!


Hasbro just announced that Transformers: The Last Knight star Mark Wahlberg will be joining the exciting HASCON line-up on Saturday, September 9th! Mark will be participating in the Transformers: The Last Knight panel, and he’ll also celebrate the Transformers legacy at the 10 Years of Transformers VIP Dinner on Saturday evening. You can find full details below. HASCON is taking place September 8 – 10, 2017 at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
Hasbro was excellent enough to send us over a very large box filled with a number of the exclusive items they had on offer at SDCC and just this week on Hasbro Toy Shop for us to check out. We'll be working on bringing you coverage of these items very soon, but in the meantime you can find out just what all we received by checking out the unboxing video I shot as I cracked in to the shipping carton. And let me tell you, there was no wasted space in that box! That video is embedded below, and be sure to watch for more coverage on these items coming up!
Yesterday (just about 24 hours ago from the time of this post) many of Hasbro's SDCC exclusives went live on Hasbro Toy Shop. While Star Wars merchandise was revealed to be held back until September 1st, Transformers, GI Joe, Marvel, and Magic: The Gathering items all activated to a waiting population of SDCC non-attendees. It was a question as to the overall response, since the 2016 exclusive offerings were notable for not selling through very quickly. Keep reading for a rundown on what happened next!


Chris McFeely has posted his videos from the TFNation 2017 panel on the G1 episode "Heavy Metal War"! In these videos - timed to go along with the live presentation at the con - storyboards are compared to the final animation, the differences between that animation and the error-filled rough cuts are shown, and a series of extended and deleted scenes are reconstructed with a combination of the recently-discovered G1 dialogue tapes and the storyboards! Keep reading to see!
