The Largest Official Gathering of TRANSFORMERS Fans Starts Today at Landmark Brand Expo in Shanghai

Pawtucket, RI – July 30, 2010 – Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) is kicking off the start of the first ever official TRANSFORMERS fan convention to be held in Asia, “TRANSFORMERS Cybertron Con,” at the East Asia Exhibition Hall at the Shanghai World Expo. Building on the tremendous momentum and enthusiasm for Hasbro’s popular brand around the world, the Company is presenting an extensive collection of historical TRANSFORMERS items from throughout the brand’s 26 year history. In a visually stunning exhibit, Hasbro is welcoming fans to experience a wide variety of offerings from the brand’s current toy line and entertainment.

This “history corridor” will be featured in the central section of the expansive TRANSFORMERS Cybertron Convention footprint within the East Asia Exhibition Hall at the Shanghai World Expo. Within the corridor, visitors and fans can see the chronological progression of the TRANSFORMERS brand beginning with the classic “Generation 1” era.

ComicBookRessources.com has posted their coverage of IDW's comic book panel at SDCC.

Some Transformers highlights:


The panel then opened for questions which were started off with one fan asked about the possibility of "Transformers Spotlight" relaunching. Schmidt replied that they are trying to "hone in" on continuity instead, by focusing on a small cast.

A fan asked about the next appearance of the Transformer Punch/Counterpunch and Schmidt answered that a miniseries entitled "Legacy of Rust" was in development.

A fan asked about the direction of some of the Transformer designs in the IDW's "Transformers" books and Schmidt confirmed that they would be going with Don Figuroa's designs, noting that Figuroa himself would be returning with issue#14 of the ongoing "Transformers" series.

When asked about "The Thirteen" original Transformers, both Schmidt and Costa mysteriously replied, "No comment."


Other topics discussed were some particulars of Transformers Ongoing which we already reported, Dungeons and Dragons, and GI JOE comic book plans.

Seibertron.com member "Autobot032" has noticed that ACToys has a thread running with images from this years Cybertron Con, a Transformers convention. The images how us fun memories of the past, toys of the present and Toys of the future such as the highly anticipated Master Piece Rodimus Prime!
We have mirrored the Masterpiece Rodimus pictures:

It is rumoured that this figure is in fact the Hot Rod robot and has the ability to combine with parts from it's trailer to form Rodimus Prime, this is however just a rumour and cannot be confirmed at this point.

There is however one more very interesting reveal, a golden Fortress Maximus.
Seibertron.com Image
It is currently unknown if this is a very good fan custom, unused Lucky Draw idea or a brand new Lucky Draw figure, should this really be a new Lucky Draw it could mean that there is a reissue coming our way.

For the rest of the images just click here!

You could also check out the news about the pre-order for this figure by clicking here.
