Toy News: Images of "Bumblebee" Movie "Energon Igniter" Power Series reveals at New York Comic-Con 2018

Hasbro has provided Ben's World of Transformers with stock images of the "Power Series" figures revealed at New York Comic-Con 2018 from the "Bumblebee" live action movie. As a bonus, I have also included shots I took at Hasbro's press room! The first wave of these figures have already hit stores. The "Power Series" figures are designed to interact with "Energon Igniter Core" accessories included with the "Energon Igniter Power Plus" series and larger "Nitro" series figures. In general this "Energon Igniter Core" reveals new weaponry and helps move the vehicle along using a small motor.

FAO Schwarz is one of the oldest toy stores still in operation. However, far from its grand days with a giant store in New York City's famous Fifth Avenue shopping district (and appearance in the 1988 hit movie "Big") the store's profile in New York City shrunk down to a small corner of Bergdorf Goodman in 2017 after its store on Fifth Avenue closed (it is now an Apple Store).

Business News: Toys 'R' Us may be coming back

Earlier this year toy collectors had to say goodbye to Toys 'R' Us stores in the United States, with the former Toys 'R' Us locations becoming other stores or sitting empty to this day. It seemed that the age of Geoffrey greeting you as you looked for a toy was over - or is it?
