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.

During Toy Fair 2019, some fan media sites were able to take a photo of a table that featured several exclusive figures. Among these were mock ups of packaging for a line with a distinctive "35th Anniversary Special Edition" label. These boxes featured Optimus Prime, Soundblaster, Megatron and Bluestreak in what promised to be "Siege" redecos in "clean" colors minus the battle damage that the line is known for.
