HASBRO DELIVERS THE HOTTEST SPECIAL EDITION TOYS AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON, FEATURING TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, MY LITTLE PONY AND MORE


PAWTUCKET, R.I. (June 26, 2012) —In what has become a highly anticipated annual tradition, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) is coming to Comic-Con International in San Diego, California, with an array of special edition action figures and toys that are set to be some of the hottest items available at the show. This year, the special edition figures are drawn from the lore of some of Hasbro’s most popular brands, as well as eagerly anticipated movies, animated series and video games.

The special edition items will be available at the HasbroToyShop booth (#3329) at Comic-Con International starting on Preview Night, July 11th (while supplies last), as well as in very limited quantities after the show at HasbroToyShop.com. Highlights of the range of special edition toys include a one-of-a-kind chance to own JAR JAR BINKS from the STAR WARS films encased in Carbonite, a huge TRANSFORMERS DECEPTICON ‘Combiner’ figure based on the hotly anticipated video game TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON, a fan-favorite Pony character from the hit Hasbro Studios produced TV series My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and even a massive vehicle from MARVEL’s THE AVENGERS franchise!

“The Hasbro brand and design teams greatly enjoy conceptualizing and developing the highly sought after special edition figures for Comic-Con year over year,” said John Frascotti, chief marketing officer, Hasbro. “Each Hasbro item features a fan favorite character or other nod to the most passionate fan bases of our brands and product lines that don’t exist in the more widely available main line. We have a lot of fun developing these toys and are thrilled to be able to provide fans unique expressions of their favorite pop-culture properties.”

The comprehensive list of Hasbro’s 2012 San Diego Comic-Con special edition items features:

JOE Comic-Con special edition figure, Hasbro will be releasing two 3.75” movie likeness versions of the fan-favorite ninja.

Hasbro has just unveiled new pictures of the all-new JEM and the Holograms exclusive and the massive Marvel Universe S.H.I.E.L.D. Super Heli-Carrier with Captain America and Black Widow! Both exclusives will be available at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con. Join our discussion about Hasbro's SDCC 2012 exclusives by clicking here.

Not sure if the helicarrier will see full retail release so this might be it.

My sister is a big high-end doll collector and her jaw dropped when she saw Jem. Integrity is a BIG name in high end dolls.

G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Jem and the Holograms were all Sunbow cartoons. Some shared voice actors and company staff. Shared music. There's even one character that graces all 3 cartoon series ... Hector Ramirez, a news reporter in all 3 series: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Hector_Ramirez_(G1)

Some of the Jem characters were used as crowd fillers in Transformers "B.O.T."

Heck, there's a poster of Jem that even makes a surprise appearance in Masterforce!

I didnt know they were in B.O.T. Im going to have to pop in the DVD. I guess that puts Jem in the "G1 cameo appearance" catagory with Battle Beasts and an aging Cobra Commander.


And that crotch pincher looks pretty painful...

And, according to Vector Prime in the AllSpark Almanac II book, the Jem cartoon (along with G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, C.O.P.S., and Inhumanoids) is canon to the American G1 cartoon continuity. :-B

At the very least I've got to get Terrocon Cliffjumper. I was going to get the Takara version, but this looks way better in my opinion. I'll make an attempt at getting Bruticus, but it won't bother me too much if I can't get this version.

Also, I find it funny just how careful they are to not use Derpy's name in that press release. I guess after Derpygate they just decided to not ever use her name again.

I don't really get the purpose of the helicarrier. It's a floating platform for superheroes that can fly? Do their legs or arms get tired from flying and they need to stop and rest mid-air?

Not sure if you saw a little film called The Avengers. It wasn't wildly successful or promoted much, so I'd understand. In it, there's a whole team of...wait for it...superheroes, right? And 2 of them can fly. Okay, a couple of them can fly planes, but no-one ever gets tired flapping their arms whilst flying a plane in films.

Maria Hill is not Black Widow.

And I'm sorry but why has this been front paged? Seibertron said he wanted the site to get back to focusing on official Transformers products, which is fair enough. But how do official JEM and Avengers products fall into that catagory? Rather double standards don't you think? Or is this actually a Hasbro fansite?

I'm guessing he thought that those of us who have interest in the other SDCC stuff would appreciate it. I don't happen to be one of those people, but if I were, I'd certainly appreciate the gesture. But that's just my take, I wouldn't worry about it so much. :)

This is, like, the one and only time Jem, Avengers, and the like are ever going to be anywhere near the front page, and they're all tied to the same convention. It's not like Seibertron is suddenly reporting every little story even remotely relevant to anything Hasbro.

Well the Jem universe and the Transfomers universe are already crossed over. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Jem

It's at least as Transformers related as Marvel Crossovers or Mosaics, let alone 3rd party stuff. It's not like every single Jem release (if there is more than this one) would be covered here, but this is something of a special occasion.

I would never have known Jem had a link to transformers. It is interesting to know and I do like oddball G1 triva. But front paging it this month was kind of bad timing.

Wow.......$100 for Bruticus. If the G2 version is released in the U.S I'll get the G2. If it isn't then I'll buy the sdcc version.

I like this Cliff 10 times more than the the takara so it's a buy.

So just so I know when to get my computer on, when are these thought to be put on HTS?

Yeah, that's the $50,000 question right there.

They can't guarantee a set time so it's get up early and wait.

I'm amazed that the $200 preorders for the Bruticus sets on BBTS are already sold out.

I'll be going the HTS route and hopefully Hasbro will create as many of these as they did the FE Deluxe SDCC Prime's from last year (still in stock on HTS for $19.99).

I still can't believe people are actually paying $200 (that's $40 EACH for each of the deluxes that make up Bruticus). I can get the FP Bruticus add-on set for that and it's way more worth it.

Could be that they're just doing that as a backup and if/when they get a confirmed order placed with HTS they'll cancel.

I am going to try my luck at getting him on HTS.com as well. I also hope that Hasbro doesn't short these. If they are paying attention at all to preorders of this set and Amazons, and the regular retail release, they should know that they need to have a good supply ready for the wave of orders that's going to hit their servers when they come up for sale.
