Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Hello Seibertronians! Courtesy of site owner Seibertron himself, currently on the floor at New York Comic Con 2017, we have a nudge towards where the panels taking place at the event will be live streamed for the whole duration of the convention: Twitch! That's right, the whole thing will be live streamed - and that means that the Hasbro Transformers panel due at 11.15 am EST until 11.45 EST will be watchable below.

The panel, the standard Hasbro brand one and the second of the panels for the day, is described as follows, and a new reveal has been teased by the Twitch team too:

Time: 11:15 AM – 11:45 AM
Venue: NYCC Live Stage – Booth 174
Details: Join members of Hasbro as they unveil the latest and greatest from the world of Transformers.

NYCC 2017: Summary and Images of Hasbro Transformers Panel #NYCC17

Postby william-james88 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 12:59 pm

Below is a summary of the New York Comic Con 2017 Hasbro Transformers Panel along with images. You can view the panel itself here.

First they look at the Allspark tech figures. They are aware that these toys can currently be found at retail but they wanted to give a tech demo. They also plug the home video release of the

They compared Trypticon's gimmick of eating toys and them coming out of his chest to a Pachinko machine, which showed me how much John Warden is into Japanese culture.

They then showed two boxes of Trypticon Titan Master Crunch.

John Warden then reveals Titans Return Grotusque, the second monster bot, which was available on Hasbro Toy Shop and is now sold out. The design of the head is said to be similar to a sabretooth tiger. He is said to have extra deco to go with the fact that it's a special edition toy. The artwork for Grotusque is by Marcello Matere.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Is is then said that the quantity on Hasbro Toy Shop is limited but that in a month or so additional sets will be available through partner retailers.

Hasbro then reiterates when speaking about Ttans Return Arcee, how much Toysrus is a great partner.

John Warden then shows a finished Volcanicus combined. This si the first time we see the combined mode in colour. Once again, we see that Swoop has the blue chest. The Enigma of combination is shown to fit in the T-Rex mouth on the combiner chest. It is then confirmed, for those who were still unsure, that all deluxes and voyager combine in the Power of the Primes line.

For those wanting a time frame, it is then stated that all the toys required for Volcanicus should be available by late spring (ie, the second quarter) but the first wave should be available either right before Christmas, if your lucky, or early 2018.

We then see a pair of wings which John Warden says may or may not be part of the Titan Class figure coming out next (spoilers from your fellow editor, these are Pradacon Divebomb's wings).

Hasbro then promotes the Earth Wars game due to Volcanicus' appearance and next month's Machinima Titans Return series which will have some humongous awesomeness in the form of Trypticon.

Enjoy the images of the panel below!

Seeing the images of Prediking's wings, makes me wish they had done the Dino-Bots in that size as well.

So then Trypticon comes in. Fort Max and Metro can't hang, even with the great upgrades I've given them!

So true, Especially since its the DINOBOTS. I might have to pass. I primarily collect Masterpieces anyway, but I usually grab really good figures no mater the size class. At least Predaking will probably be Masterpiece size, hopefully!
