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!
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.
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!
