Earlier today the Hasbro Transformers brand team members Ben Montano and John Warden participated in a panel at New York Comic-Con. This panel was live streamed however at this time I have not been able to find a video link for it on Twitch's web site. In the meantime however you can read over my Tweets from the panel.

While walking the New York Comic-Con floor I came across a surprise: a custom 2017 Chevrolet Camaro covered in Transformers "Titans Return" graphics! The hood has Fortress Maximus' artwork on it while the grid pattern schematics appear on the sides and back. Check out these pics of this awesome looking vehicle!

Event Coverage: New York Comic-Con 2016 Thursday Photos

New York Comic-Con 2016 has kicked off! Today is traditionally the "calm day" making it ideal for photos. However this convention has grown every year and today was much more crowded and busy than I had expected. Still I braved the many elbows and back pack collisions to take photos for your viewing pleasure! Check out my gallery on Facebook to check them out.

Starting Thursday, October 6, Ben's World of Transformers will be attending New York Comic-Con 2016!

BWTF will be attending panels, taking photos and of course a write up at the end of the convention. Panels are largely dependent on space so below is my tentative panel schedule.
