Long time followers of my site will know that one of the fandoms I belong to other than Transformers is Star Trek. Indeed, my entry into Star Trek fandom happened years before Transformers were ever released! When I discovered the Eaglemoss collection of Star Trek ships years ago I was instantly in love with the collection. These are the ships I had wanted since I was a kid! A good size, not too big, not too small and filled with detail.

While "Generations" tends to take the spotlight when it comes to Transformers toys nowadays, there is another line which appeals to kids and a very specific part of fandom: BotBots! These adorable (and sometimes weird) figures took the line by storm earlier this year and the line will continue well into the end of this year (and beyond).

As part of its many events at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Hasbro held a Fan Media Event Thursday evening that acted like a bookend to the breakfast from earlier in the day. During this event the Hasbro team had hoped to demonstrate the transformation of the Unicron grey model live with the assistance of engineers and designers from Takara Tomy. However, not all quite went as planned. While Unicron was there in robot mode in all his glory, the engineers were worried that the prototype would require some more delicate touches behind the scenes to transform properly.

While veteran fans have the likes of Masterpiece and "Siege" to occupy their time, younger Transformers fans (and yes, some older ones) may be interested to see what is happening with the "Cyberverse" toy line. This Fall, "Cyberverse" will focus on the sub-line titled "Power of the Spark". The story revolves around the Allspark taking ordinary vehicles and turning them into powerful armor for Transformers (both Autobots and Decepticons!). Check out these awesome photos of what looks like a super fun play pattern right from the Hasbro booth at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
