Transformers Fans First Friday coming to Hasbro Pulse

If you follow Hasbro Pulse then you'll know that for a while now Hasbro has been using the store as a platform to livestream new figures from their various franchises every Friday. For the most part the focus has been on Star Wars and Marvel, but this coming Friday it's Transformers time to shine! But they aren't shining alone as it'll be a joint stream with G.I. Joe! Transformers will start streaming at 11:00 AM EST and G.I. Joe at 12:30 PM EST. You'll recall a recent leak revealed a G.I. Joe & Transformers set was planned for San Diego Comic Con, now likely to be a solo Pulse exclusive, this seems like the ideal place to reveal it!

Join us for a very special double feature Fan First Friday on June 26th, where we'll be livestreaming with the TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE teams! TRANSFORMERS will roll out Fan First Friday at 11am EST, followed by a short intermission and then G.I. JOE at 12:30pm EST.

And that's not even all of it. The live streams will also feature a short Q&A session with the design teams so get your questions ready and submit them to their facebook and Instagram pages!

I'm hoping we see proper reveals of the Cyclonus, Thrust and Soundwave we saw a couple of weeks ago, along with Deluxe Bumblebee and the Prowl and Ironhide twin pack we heard about a while back.

Hasbro Facebook post says six reveals for Transformers this Fans First Friday.

For clarity's sake, this isn't referring to any TF/Joe crossover set, just that both properties will be streaming reveals that day.

Also, the official Transformers Facebook just posted that there will be specifically six new TF reveals.

I would also like to precise to fans that to hasbro a reveal is anything that has not been officially revealed yet through one of their reveal channels (like twitter, IGN, or conventions). So That would include Cyberverse Ultra Thunderhowl who can currently be found in stores as well as the Top Gun TF, Hubcap, Thrust and Cyberverse Warrior Energon Axe Attack Optimus Prime.

Makes Sense. Considering you have Earthrise, SS, Cyberverse, MP, Selects, any possible convention reveals etc... and 6 reveals total, it could be only one or two per line. Though Cyberverse is near its end I cant imagine (other than the aforementioned Thunderhowl) too much more coming from that.

Keep in mind that Hasbro does these every Friday (or nearly so), they even did a special Monday one yesterday for Star Wars so expect them to do several of these between now and when SDCC would have taken place in late July.

True, but not every one is focused on Transformers as they have several brands to promote. It would be more likely to have approximately one TF focused one per month, than anything else.

Yeah, I wasn't trying to imply that they're going to do four more of these for Transformers next month, just that this probably isn't the only one they have planned. What they should really do is take a cue from the video game industry and livestream a full on Transformers brand panel to reveal their future plans like they would have done if SDCC hadn't been canceled.

SDCC is continuing in that several panels will be live streamed that weekend as they would have been presented on site. We can only hope Hasbro may try to do one in addition to the fan Fridays instead of using FF's in place of any presence they may have had at SDCC.

Hope they aren't just showing the transformers R.E.D figures on IGN (6 inch non transforming, action master/scf type things). Though I'll be interested in those whose alt modes previously have been done less than desirable (siege autobot cars etc).

...I've had a thought, because the Facebook post said 6 reveals but never specified figure reveals: what if one of the reveals is this year's fan poll? This is around when we'd get that, right?

(I would much rather have actual figure reveals, I'm merely posing the idea)

I think he meant possibly a reveal, of a new fan poll for this year, not the winner of last years that is supposedly being released this year, and has already been revealed, and yes is available for pre-order. (although I could be mistaken).

I would hope it was 6 actual TF toys, not concepts, ideas, gimmicks etc.... Besides while the timing does seem coincidental, I don't think we need another fan poll right now. Because I dont have FB, I've never actually been able to vote, but the only one that seemed legit was the Titan one where Trypticon one, but that may just be me.

I'm expecting most reveals to be of things already leaked/mentionned. That said I do want to see Exhaust' deco. Not expecting anything new mind you.

Yeah, that was what I meant, sorry if that wasn't clear. I was referring to the fan poll for 2020 that would determine a 2021 figure. I don't know if that's actually likely to happen, nor do I really want it to be one of the reveals, but the timing lined up and the thought came to mind.

At this point I'm mostly expecting to get confirmation of what some figures we know are coming actually look like, yeah, and Exhaust is the highest on that list. Although if that Selects Centurion droid is real, I certainly wouldn't mind more surprises.

Actually I would say the Power of the Primes fan poll was the most legit. No way in hell Warden wanted Optimus Primal to win.
