HasCon 2017: Transformers Archive area

Part of the Transformers display area included several shelves featuring grey models of past Transformers figures as well as some items that were never released! Among the highlights are an Bumblebee "evolution' two pack with Scraplets from "Prime", a movie-verse Blaster and movie-verse Deluxe Skywarp! This was a really cool way for fans to see items they normally would not see.

HasCon 2017 Transformers "Power of the Primes"

in 2017, Event Report

On the first day of HasCon 2017 the Transformers team held a panel where several "Power of the Primes" figures were revealed! "Power of the Primes" is the third part of the "Prime Trilogy" which began with "Combiner Wars". After the panel, these figures were displayed in the Hasbro area of the exhibition floor.

Some of these items were seen at San Diego Comic-Con, but the Dinobots were a new reveal and caused much stir among fans - especially when it was revealed they would combine into Volcanicus! This means "Power of the Primes" will now encompass three play patterns:
