San Diego Comic Con 2018

Postby RotorstormNP » Sat Jul 07, 2018 12:48 pm

All,
SDCC is coming quickly and it looks like the main attractions for us at this point are the Hasbro Transformers panel on Friday July 20 at 3am our time:
Be the first to hear about new Transformers toys and products that have yet to hit store shelves straight from the design and marketing teams at Hasbro. There is a lot of buzz for Bumblebee: The Movie hitting theaters in December. Roll in to get a glimpse at the Transformers products inspired by the film, including new figures in the Generations Studio Series collection. Then, get your cyber-goggles ready for a look at the first reveals from the highly anticipated upcoming Generations War for Cybertron trilogy line. Set sights on Cyberverse, the exciting new animated show is full of new characters and familiar stories. Fly in to sneak a peek at the series and several of the new toys not yet revealed. Many new Transformers initiatives from some trusted partners will be shared, as well as the induction of the 2018 Transformers Hall of Fame members.


and the Bumblebee panel, on 21/07 @ 9am NZT:
Paramount Pictures brings Transformers to Comic-Con Hall H for the first time with Bumblebee. Director Travis Knight will be joined by star Hailee Steinfeld and cast in a panel moderated by Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican.


I live in hope there will be a livestream so I have a reason to set an alarm for 2.55am!
Cheers, Zac in Whanganui

Me too, I’ve come back to the hobby too late to enjoy the whole Prime Trilogy so I’m excited for the new line.

Also Bee toys. Very interested in what’s there especially the jet.

I know it makes no sense in terms of show accuracy, but I really like the black Optimal Optimus and prefer it to the proper one. He’s the one I want!
