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.

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:
