When we posted about Hascon's ticket packages, we had somehow glossed over something that may interested the Magic The Gathering crossover portion of the Transformers fandom: one of the three silver-bordered cards (not legal in tournament play) offered in the Super Fan package for MTG is indeed a Transformers card, alongside Dungeons & Dragons and NERF! The news comes to us via Seibertronian Cyrano, who spotted it on Twitter (actual source still missing, please do let us know if you find it!). No images are available yet.

Cards! Great, whatever...so when will we get intel on actual exclusive Generations TF figures.

Is there a benefit in dragging their feet about this? Is there benefit in not having any to release on their HasCon debut as well?

Silver bordered - pfft! For $600 I'd better get a standard-legal transforming Unicron planeswalker!

Hascon announcements are the best advertisements for TF-Con

Who said the HASCON exclusives were going to be figures? It could be an exclusive Soundwave voice changing mask and an exclusive Bumblebee cannon arm for all we know. :lol:

ScottyP wrote:One figure sounds great, and I really mean that. One of the issues Fun Pub had, imo, was the mentality that less could not possibly be more. Did year X's set have Y number of figures? Fun Pub thought that year X+1's set had to have greater than or equal to Y or it was a step back. They said so. It didn't and doesn't make sense and seemed like a strange self-imposed guideline.

Anyhow, yeah I am very in favor of Hascon going for more of an early Botcon or Tokyo Toy Show type model where there are 1, at most 3 or so choice pieces to commemorate the event.


But $600 for a dinner and a goodie bag with one vague exclusive, which may not even be a figure?

At Botcon, $600 would get you a 5-figure boxset, the attendee exclusive, an original comic, a commemorative pin, tech specs, a goodie bag, 3-day pass at the con, hall of fame dinner, casino night, door prize entries, a massive dealer room entry, discount for protoform packages, a year's worth of the funpub newsletters, an annual exclusive mailed to you, and at least 1 more convention exclusive. You would leave with an experience and a haul of valuable figures.

Following the leak of Titans Return cards for a Deluxe Arcee and a Titan Master Ultra Magnus, rumours were abound on how they would be released if at all. Well, the wait's finally over as io9 has revealed they're an exclusive for the upcoming Hascon! Listed specifically as 'early access' at 30$, see the official image and what io9 has to say about them below and tell us what you think in the forums!

UPDATE: It has been brought to this foolish news poster's attention exactly what 'early access' means -- it's highly likely that Arcee and Ultra Magnus are not exclusives at Hascon, but will be there first before being distributed to normal retail afterwards.

Inspired by the retro generation 1 designs, the Deluxe-Class figure includes a “Titan Master” minifigure for Ultra Magnus, which can transform into an alternate heads for other Titans Returns figures:

Damn. If this and the Optimus Prime power bank were SDCC exclusives, I would have bought more stuff at Comic-Con.

I'll say what I said on the Daim post.

Maybe they'll keep the exclusives to a minimum.

I know we had gotten REALLY awesome characters from BotCon. But even being a non-attendee trying to get all the exclusives costs you (well, costs me, at least) almost two whole months of income.

Just one exclusive is a little more manageable. Boring. But manageable.

Totally agreed. This Arcee looks way better than the Generations mold, super G1 Arcee just ends up looking odd to me. Makes me wish Nautica got more retooling.
