This morning at San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro held its Hasbro's Entertainment Brand Preview Breakfast displaying upcoming products from some of its key brands including Marvel, Star Wars, Power Rangers and of course, Transformers. This year was very low key at the breakfast, with only three reveals (two of which had already been revealed elsewhere). Here's the rundown:

As part of its display at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, the Transformers team made a strong showing with their "Generations" display. Several upcoming "Siege" figures were on display including a battle scene happening with Omega Supreme in base mode! Also swooping in to assist is Commander Class Jetfire! In addition to these reveals we get a good look at how figures like the upcoming Mirage and Impactor will look up close. Interestingly, the Micromaster 10-Pack revealed previously was taken out of the shelf as it was not intended to be seen just yet.

San Diego Comic-Con 2019 has kicked off with Wednesday's Preview Night where a limited audience could hit the show floor, take in the sights and of course, spend insane amount of money! Among the most impressive displays was the prototype of Unicron! Launched three days ago, Hasbro made a strong showing of presenting Unicron in both modes. The figure was gigantic and the display cases allowed fans to see the figure at multiple angles. Check out my video below featuring the Monster Planet himself.

Events: BWTF is Headed to San Diego Comic-Con 2019

It's that time of year again! San Diego Comic-Con kicks off tomorrow and as always, Hasbro will be showing off new products and holding panels during the convention. Traditionally I have not been able to attend the convention due to personal commitments. In past years, some dear friends would attend the Hasbro breakfast for me and send back photos. This year however is different! For the first time ever I will be covering the Hasbro breakfast personally! Also, I plan to attend Hasbro's panel and live Tweet from it. Here is the information on the two main events I plan to report on:

The Official Transformers TCG Facebook Page has posted images of the 2019 Convention Booster Pack featuring the Omnibots! In Generation One, the Omnibots were a team of Autobots who were "reinforcements from Cybertron", traveling a long way to help the Autobots out on Earth. They were only mail order items, giving them a mystique that lasts to this day.
