TFcon update, Hasbro Canada's Product Preview and Q/A has been pulled from the schedule, statement below:

Due to the sale of 3rd party figures at TFcon the Hasbro New Product Preview and Q/A has been pulled from our programming. Hasbro Canada is still scheduled to attend TFcon 2012 and will have a product display and interact with the fans. We at TFcon apologize for any inconvenience and thank Hasbro Canada for all their help over the years. You can find below the official statement from Hasbro’s Corporate Communications team:

“Although it was communicated by TFcon that Hasbro would host a panel at TFcon this year, Hasbro will unfortunately not be able to participate in a panel. However, we continue to look forward to meeting fans on the convention floor on Saturday.”

I totally understand the view on 3rd party products, but taking down the new product preview over it? Really?

I bet it's cause all the reveals will be at SDCC.

I don't think they do any new product reveals there anyway.

Lame, but I don't feel like I'm actually missing out on anything. It's not like TFcon has exclucive first reveals and the panel is usually pretty common sense.

I gotta say I kind of expected this, though with SDCC only a week away, I think we'll do ok.
