FANmily Secrets: Four Things We Hope To Learn More About At HasCon This Friday
RAC - Monday, September 04, 2017

HasCon is almost upon us, and Hasbro's been teasing a lot of things that we may see this Friday. (And so have the leakers in China!) Hasbro's 2018 offerings are on the horizon and there's a ton of blanks to fill in. So what do we hope to see? A few subjects came to mind, and we're counting them down in the ever-popular listicle format. (But no slideshows - they're terrible.) Keep reading to see!

4. Machinima's Titans Return Animated Series

This is... kind of a distant fourth, depending on who you talk to. The first series, Combiner Wars, strained visibly against its budget and its time limit, and hopefully both have been expanded. Though at the moment, we can only confirm the time limit. Several of the writers have solid credits under their belts (most notably George Krstic of Megas XLR fame), and Megatron at least was endearing. So hopefully with Combiner Wars having a lot of lessons to teach, Titans Return will be something more of us can get into.

3. Transformers: Cyberverse

Is it really the Neo-G1 designs we've seen around the internet lately, or is it something else? And if it is the G1 Redux stuff, why does none of the merchandise we've seen so far say Cyberverse on it? At this point all we really have is a name and some leaked toy photos, so more information on exactly how two and two go together would be nice.

2. Power of the Primes

This is one of the things we're surest to see at HasCon... but how much will we see? We've had teaser images of the Dinobots and possibly a female Autobot... but the big question is how much of what we've guessed or had leaked to us Hasbro will actually confirm. Our hope is that we get to at least see everything through wave 2, and that they admit the Combiner functionality of the figures. But we'll see on that second one, as even their internal documents made no reference to it!

1. The New Transformers Collector's Club

We've already got a good idea that this is coming, largely thanks to the images for HasCon non-exclusive, "First-Sale" figure Arcee being labeled as being a Club item. But, that's not going to be the only exclusive, right? And how will the Club itself be organized? Like the old TFCC, with a pricy membership bestowing the right to purchase their wares? Or something a little bit less restrictive? We've got our fingers crossed for a good outcome that benefits the largest number of fans, but the odds are very, very good that we'll find out more at HasCon!

More HasCon News
HASCON returns in 2019... Er uh, what happened to 2018? Just a guess, they are waiting for another Movie year with Bumblebee and MLP closer to the show. In any case, they have decided to let us know two years in ahead of time the second convention will be held at the same time and place as before. While good for Hasbro, it is a kind of shame they are not going to stage the event for others around the country. Otherwise, this is just an initial announcement with more details you can read after the jump.
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!
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.
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.
