While we did show this image in the news earlier today, we did not have much time to go over it since we wanted to get you the details of the reveals asap. But now, we have a bit of time to go over it and we see that this Pulsecon did reveal all the wave 1 toys afterall including Blaster and the core class figures, thanks to this poster below. We see a Seeker and that is indeed core Skywarp, who will be a redeco of core Starscream. There is also core Hot Rod which should be a new mold, he also seems to be holding a sword. Most importantly, since this was a big question from people, we see Iguanas. He is the purple reptilian face on the lower right. This confirms that this core Iguanas is G1 Ignauas and not the Beast wars one. Rumour is that the robot mode is the monster shell which turns into a vehicle.
We also see Blaster, next to Arcee atop Bulkhead. Now it is still uncertain if Blaster will still be coming out in Kingdom, we still have a wave left, or if his first time on the shelves will be in the Legacy line. But regardless, this is out first look at him in his G1 glory.
Finally, we have a lot more stock images and official shots of all the reveals of today. They can all be found below. And to answer people's common questions: YES Dragstrip will combine to form Menasor, this was confirmed in the panel, and NO he does not appear to have a combiner peg that would make him Combiner Wars compatible. Menasor is the only combiner appearing in the mainline next year.
Some of these are available on Hasbro Pulse, including the exclusive Galvatorn figure, and they mainline toys can or will be avialable for purchase at your preferred online retailer.
Pulsecon 2021 is ON! We got 5 new reveals along with what we saw earlier this week. We learnt that in this Legacy line, all energon weapons combine together (unknown if there is a designated full combination) and a new box gimmick is the QR codes, which leads you to the character's web page. There is an image below for you to try out.
You can see the images below for:

Galvatron Unicron Pack (not under the Legacy line)
Mark Maher, one of the lead Transformers designers at Hasbro, has made a post on Instagram talking about the upcoming "G1" Bulkhead. He will be presenting this toy and others from Legacy tomorrow at Pulsecon. Speaking of Pulsecon, the schedule has changed There will noe be an entire other Transformers segment dedicated to the entertainment side of things like video games and the Rise of the Beasts film. There will even be a Vince DiCola concert. The details are below. Here is the link to the youtube page where the event will be shown.
"I felt honored to finally be able to make Bulkhead look like he belongs in our G1 universe! Yuta san really helped me make this guy amazing! Be sure to watch me at Pulsecon to talk about the details on these guys!
This friday, Hasbro will be unveiling the new inductees into the Transformers Hall of Fame. And you get to choose who it is. This year, Hasbro made it an easy multiple choice question for all of us. There are a few categories so choose for each.
TRANSFORMERS 2021 HALL OF FAME
Since 2010, the Transformers Hall of Fame has honored the creative minds, iconic characters, and toys spanning the Transformers franchise. In honor of the 25th anniversary of Beast Wars: Transformers, this year’s Hall of Fame fan vote categories celebrate the groundbreaking history of the Beast Era.
Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has alerted us of some fun new images of the prototypes being showcased at the Boston Fan Expo by Hasbro as part of the Haslab Victory Saber project. The images come from Xellos who posted on The Allspark. We also have some from TFs on Vacation who posed them on the TFW boards. They had the recent Generations Punch/Counterpunch with them for a scale comparison and gave a description of the sizes. Star Saber himself was said to be slightly taller than a Titans Return leader class figure. And looing at the comparison with the deluxe figure on hand, Victory Leo seems more in line with a big voyager class toy. A comparison image posted by Bravemaximike makes it look like the combined Victory Saber mode is almost as big as Commander class Jetfire. Here are the images below for you to enjoy! They were first posted here.
Also, for those wondering, with only orders from US, Canada and UK, the number of orders for this project is currently 5669. Here is the link to the page on Pulse.
Target has begun their the Collector's Spot Fall Geek-Out event running from September 3 to October 3 where they'll be making new announcements every Friday across various collectibles lines. Transformers fans wont be waiting long as Target plans to hold a special event this coming Friday, September 10 just for us! There's no telling exactly what they'll reveal, most likely a new exclusive, but the first day held yesterday revealed a $50 Batman figure from McFarlane that also has an $80 signed variant (both of which sold out shortly after) made for New York Comic Con so the bar has already been set very high. That final day of the event in October also promises more reveals from Hasbro, though probably not Transformers specific.
It's anybody's guess and you can share yours in the Energon Pub forums!
Well, Transformers fans, it looks like we are going to have a big reveal this coming week! The Transformers official Facebook page has posted that on Friday, the Transformers team at Hasbro will be doing a Fan First Friday streaming event on their YouTube channel. This isn't anything unusual- they've been doing FFF and Transformers Tuesday events all year- but it looks like we're going to get something pretty big revealed. Given their use of the phrase "Let's say go!" in the post, it seems they're going to reveal the HasLab Transformers: Victory project that was teased several weeks back. Seeing as how that was Autobot Supreme Commander Star Saber's catchphrase in the Victory cartoon, it's highly likely that we'll be seeing a reveal of a Star Saber figure in a few days.
While their post is by no means a confirmation of a Star Saber figure, it's hard not to speculate that it will be a new version of the Fan favorite Autobot. If it turns out to be true, this would also be the first transforming version of Star Saber released in the U.S. market; his previous G1 and Masterpiece figures were only released in Japan, as was the Victory cartoon (though the MP was available from online e-tailers in the US).
So are you pumped to see what the big reveal is? Hoping to see what the remaining Kingdom figures are going to be? There's only one way to find out, and that's to tune in this Friday at 11am ET on Pulse's YouTube channel. See you all then!

Fellow Seibertronian Immortal Starscream has shared with us a link to an announcement from Hasbro that the next Pulse Con will be held October 22-23 2021. All brands will be present, including Transformers, of course. This being well into the 4th quarter means that he reveals should all focus on the upcoming 2022 toys. We know most of the ones we are getting in the generations line but it will be fun to actually see them. This will definitely be too late for the Kingdom wave 4 reveal so we don't know how Hasbro will share that with us between now and then. Of course, this is all just speculation and we could be wrong. It happened on the last fan first Friday where the Transformers reveals were just 3 SS86 toys.
So it turns out that once again, the only toys revealed were Studio Series 86 toys, because clearly that is all that matters now. However, they did give time to 2 mobile games featuring Transformers along with showing us the Shaterred Glass toys again. below is a list of the reveals.
SS86 voyager Sweep, is a brighter blue than Scourge. And has different Blast effect.
SS86 deluxe Perceptor coming in 2022, triple changer with official tank mode.
SS86 leader Coronation Starscream, partial of earthrise Starscream with new extra bits and comes with a purple throne. Deco is more plain for a more movie accurate look.
Leaders will be closed box like MPs from here on out.
Next we have a look at the programable Optimus Prime. New preorders will be available at 1 pm with other preorders, since the previous ones sold out.
They then showed all the Shaterred glass toys and comics we are getting.
After that, we got not one but TWO trailers for mobile games featuring Transformers crossovers. One is the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
Just a quick reminder to all fans out there that in about half an hour, Hasbro will have a Fan First Friday event featuring new Transformers reveals. This will probably have the wave 4 Kingdom toys and we have yet to actually see one of them, Slammer, fully. It will start at 11 EST.
Are you ready to #RollOut, Transformers fans?! Join the Transformers team this Friday, August 13th, at 11:00am ET on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube channel as they deliver some PRIME news about your favorite brand! You don't want to miss out!
