New York Comic Con October 13-16, 2011


More or less than what meets the eye! This year for Transformers has been simultaneously awesome and dull, all at once. With the massive launch of Dark of the Moon, Hasbro more or less blew their year over the course of a few weeks in early summer. New items have trickled out, but a tiny handful of new DOTM toys were shown at Comic Con this October like Wheeljack and a deluxe Soundwave, with little new in Cyberverse or in the exclusive sphere. Also surprising, not only were no Generations toys announced but the two due in November weren't on display or (as far as I can tell) discussed.

Transformers Prime continued its roll-out with a look at the Voyaer-class Bulkhead and Optimus Prime in addition to the more-or-less last minute addition of an exclusive set featuring Bumblebee as a cab, a pink Arcee (which may have been what fans assumed Hasbro was hinting at regarding a "classic" Arcee) and two of the kids with a fun touristy t-shirt. The Cyberverse Transformers Prime toys were also shown and look pretty good-- they seem to have tiny clear weapons which remind me of the awesome accessories from Transformers Energon.

Not much other news here-- the exclusive set was $33 and is, more or less, worth the asking price considering tax was included. I'm also a sucker for transforming cabs, the last (and possibly only?) of which was named Overcharge. I like it enough and will have more on it in a bit. OH, and no new Kre-o were shown, but the Matrix Optimus Prime was given away again making it the most common figure in the line by now. I assume.
