Though it was odd to not have heard anything about the Hasbro Transformers presence at this coming weekend's New York Comic Con 2018, the event's official schedule page does reveal that the team will be showing up for a panel in the Javits Center after all!

According to the blurb, and the title, we'll be treated with a look at Bumblebee Movie, Studio Series and War for Cybertron: Siege toys - allegedly new reveals too, though this seems to have been too quiet to finally see the Decepticons on display - but it'll be definitely worth tuning in for our coverage to find out what's what on Thursday 4th October! Find out more below.

Transformers Bumblebee Movie & Generations Toys Sneak Peek

October 04, 2018, 11:45 AM - 12:15 PM
NYCC Live Stage - Booth 174 - Javits Center

There is always MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE when Transformers arrives at NYCC…and on December 21st when the Bumblebee movie hits the big screen! Check in to see the new toys based on the theatrical release as well as enjoy a nostalgic nod to the ‘80’s with a look at the original G1 toys hitting shelves again 34 years later!

I'm guessing the first twenty-five minutes of the panel will just be BUMBLEBEEBUMBLEBEEBUMBLEBEEBUMBLEBEEBUMBLEBEEBUMBLEBEEBUMBLEBEEBUMBLEBEE and then reveals of new Siege, Cyberverse and Studio Series toys will be squashed into the last five minutes.

With a year of no Hascon nor Botcon, NYCC 2018 will be the place to be for Transformers reveals this year. We have already had a few for Cyberverse and the Bumblebee movie line but mum's the word for Transformers Siege at the moment. The big reveals will instead be at the panel and you can all watch it live.

The Panel will be at 11:45 EST and you can access it on the SYFY website where it is confirmed to have a live stream. The live stream itself is here.

Here is looking forward to the Decepticons marching in and further hints at Omega Supreme!

Thanks for the tip! Even though I’m lukewarm on the line so far, I’m still excited to see the reveals

We're watching the panel led by the Hasbro Transformers brand taking place over at the New York Comic Con 2018 edition, waiting to hear what might be appearing in the toylines we know of so far - including Transformers: Cyberverse, the Bumblebee Movie, Studio Series, and War for Cybertron: Siege - thanks to the SYFYWire livestream.

***The story will be updated as the panel progresses, so keep refreshing the page to find out more!***

Bumblebee is the first set of products to show up, with Ben Montano and John Warden showing off the entire range of toys we had seen in the previous coverage of the line, with our unboxing video and gallery here. In addition, some plugging is made for the Movie Masterpiece MPM-7 Bumblebee toy too.

Next are the G1 toy reissues, which are - as a reminder - pretty much the result of the new Bumblebee movie being set in the 1980s.

Then we move to War for Cybertron, with Shockwave taking a lot of the spotlight, and a cool pose replicating the famous Marvel UK comic cover 'Are All Dead'. He is a leader class, as we knew, which means that he has additional 'armour' parts that can be added to form a large, powered up version of himself (as seen in the renders here).

As an addition to the whole thing, John Hasbro Warden has chosen to not bring a leg, or a wing this time round, but rather a whole head -- in its tank alt mode, for TITAN CLASS OMEGA SUPREME.

Next, we have the Studio Series line bringing the newly revealed Drift with Baby Dinobots, we just covered in our story here.

Looks like we won't see it because the video has been down for over 20 minutes.

So they actually did the whole Tank mode-for-the head Omega Supreme from G1?The absolute madmen... :APPLAUSE:


Can't wait too see how they pull this off.

Well... Omega just lost half of my hype. I hope they at least manage to make him into a "triple-changer" with a base mode and a ship mode. At this point I don't care if it's the Ark or not. Just please let us have an Omega that can turn his whole body into the ship, not just his arms

I would love an updated G1 version of Omega. I can't wait to see the final product. It would be cool if they manage to make it better then the original.

If by 'this' you mean his head, Megatron already did. :saint:

I was wondering, and in case anyone else was wondering, I have Trypticon in the room with me. The left and right cannons (not the turret) looked an awful lot like a reuse of Trypticon's shoulder cannons. They are not! Looks like completely new molding to me.

(Also, love Shocky in front of the old Marvel comic....for some strange reason....)

Our final video for you tonight consists of the Hasbro Brand presentation that Seibertron and Megatronus got to attend, which included the Siege Shockwave in his Famous "Are All Dead?" pose complete with the comic book. Also included in the video is an awesome shot of the Omega Supreme tank that will form his head and upper chest, and includes Micromaster Countdown storing in that tank component!

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

how many of those became toys? Almost if not all omega supremes parts form , they have to, its part of the character design.... idk why you were expecting something non g1 in a line focusing on updated g1 looks.

All of them except Animated got toys, and the Energon/WfC ones just split in half. If that's partsforming, then the Duocons are partsformers. Also, you started saying all Omega's had a tank mode, and now you're saying your point was that they all partsform. What are you trying to argue again? It's no longer clear.

Plus, I still don't see why it's apparently too much to ask for non-G1 ideas in a line called Generations, especially when we have a Magnus with an RiD alt mode in the same line and other new/non-G1 ideas like the cassettes being classified as Micromasters, another tank Megatron, Super Shockwave, and the new alt modes for Soundwave/Refraktor and the robot mode for Brunt (which absolutely looks like Tankor). Guess what, it's okay for things to change. That's kinda part of the whole point of Transformers in the first place.

I have to agree, I was hoping he'd transform into the Ark. I think Omega's alt mode is sillier than Megatron turning into a little pistol. It never made sense. His arms blast off into space and then what? he waits for his arms to come back? I don't think there are any weapons on Omega's rocket either. Its a bummer. I know there would be a bigger outrage if he turned into the Ark, but it would have been my first Titan purchase....because how are you going to pass up the Ark.

Its not relevant here since Hasbro has said that this whole Siege line is about bringing full on G1 back to the shelves. So I would not expect or hope for Omega being anything other than what we got in G1 for this release (and petty sure there will be no walking gimmick either)

I guess you haven't heard the news. Omega Supreme comes with Micromaster Countdown who in G1 came with this thing:

So don't just assume Omega is going to be a pure G1 rehash, he'll most likely be a dual homage like so many other figures in this line.

maybe a titan scorponok with a special edition skystalker
