While other lines focus on paying homage to "Generation One" or introducing new characters not tied down to any continuity, "Studio Series" brings in characters from the live action films and places them under one banner.

Using relative scale from one figure to another and even the CAD models from Paramount in some cases, "Studio Series" continues with characters such as Optimus Prime from the "Bumblebee" Movie and an awesome Optimus Prime who comes with a trailer that can transform into the weapons platform seen in "Dark of the Moon"!

Events: Toy Fair 2019 Transformers Masterpiece Showroom Photos

When Transformers fans want to take a few steps above "Generations" style figures, "Masterpiece" is their next step! In previous years, Masterpiece was largely relegated to a corner of a shelf in the Hasbro showroom, but this year Masterpiece was front and center with a prototype of the upcoming MP-44 Optimus Prime, a fully painted "Beast Wars" Megatron figure and more on display! This strong showing indicates a new era for the "Masterpiece" line that combines characters from G1, "Beast Wars" and the live action movies.

Special thanks to Steve K. for assistance with these photos.

Perhaps the segment of the Transformers toy line that excites long time fans the most is "Generations". The "War for Cybertron: Siege" line has helped reinvigorate the line in an interesting way and it was represented full force in Hasbro's Toy Fair 2019 showroom! This impressive display brought the Autobot and Decepticon "Cybertron City" displays from previous conventions and linked them together into an incredible battle scene. You can see my video of the display below:

Events: Toy Fair 2019 "Siege" Jetfire Demo Video

One of the great parts about visiting the Hasbro showroom at Toy Fair is the chance to see figures in action that you won't own for months to come. This year there is a lot of excitement over "Siege" Jetfire and what the new (upgraded) "Commander" Class has to offer. Well wonder now more! Senior Design Manager John Warden takes us through all the major features of Jetfire including a couple that were not revealed previously! Check out my video below:
