Transformers Exhibit Images: Toyfair Australia 2016 - Titans Return Fort Max, RID and More!
As promised, Griffin over at Ozformers returns with a big ol' bunch of new images from the Toyfair Australia 2016 Transformers event held recently Down Under. If you were wondering what we would see at BotCon
, this likely covers it with much of the new products we saw at NYC Toy Fair
last month. Lots of good looks at the Titans Return line with Fortress Maximus and company. Also shown are the latest Robots In Disguise, Rescue Bots, and a nice update from the Q&A with details on what will be showing where, and more.
Then the Q&A with Hasbro Australia. (note, we are not able to ask anything that Hasbro America haven't officially revealed, so we can't ask
to confirm or deny any rumoured toys)

A big thank you to Hasbro America for approving this, and for the possibility of this being an annual event if this one went well... and a thank you to Lewis and Philippe from Hasbro for attending the preview event and bringing some future toys for the invited fans to check out.
And finally, thanks to the fans who attended, and the ones who took photos to post up on facebook and on here for me.
