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.
