Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA July 21-24, 2011


No longer dead to me! While not on display, Hasbro promised new Generations toys based on Black Shadow and a Junkion named Sky Shadow and Junkheap, respectively, will be available prior to the end of the year. In addition to this Spring's Warpath, this may be it for Generations until it becomes something else. The previously-announced Amazon-exclusive Unicron was in display, as was the Toys R Us exclusive (and Comic-Con on-sale debut) Rodimus Prime were also on display.

Unsurprisingly, the big focus was on the new Dark of the Moon line and the construction not-LEGO line called Kre-o, both of which are in stores right now. Two of the neatest Dark of the Moon items on display were Darksteel (aka Dark Iron), a remold of Sideswipe to resemble Beast Wars Quickstrike, and Human Alliance Soundwave... which is pretty much what it sounds like. Along with an all-new mold green Air Raid, quite a few of the toys on display for the movie were previously shown at Botcon, which makes it easy to speculate that the transition to Transformers Prime product will be abrupt and swift.

While not all of our photos turned out, Prime versions of Bulkhead, Cliffjumper (in Zombie and normal modes), Voyager-class Optimus Prime, and a Vehicon were among the toys on display. All in all, an extensive offering, although Hasbro's decision to carefully drip out new product announcements over 3 conventions between June and October does make the excitement level drop somewhat. But hey, at least there's a bunch of new stuff!
