Toy News: "Titans Return" Arcee NOT cancelled

This past weekend reports began to circulate online that "Titans Return" Arcee was going to be cancelled. Thankfully it turns out this was more an administrative issue with how Toys 'R' Us was charging people rather than them not actually carrying the figure.

Sponsor News BBTS - "Robots in Disguise" Bludgeon, Thermidor & Twinferno up for Pre-Order

While Twinferno was repacked with several older figures, Bludgeon and Thermidor have only appeared in one wave so far.

Convention News: HasCon 2019 announced (Press Release Added)

You read that right, fans! The Official HasCon web site has been updated with the dates for the next HasCon: September 6-8 2019. That means there will not be a HasCon in 2018. Given the size and complexity of the show (and that 2017 was their first), it makes sense that Hasbro would want to take some time and plan the next convention carefully. Stay tuned for more updates as they come.

Update: Hasbro has sent their official press release regarding the convention.
