these all look to be IDW/Machinima related, where's the Hasbro toy reveal panel where they show us Overlord and Sixshot?

I'm assuming it's the initial Machinima panel, based on my past SDCC experience. It's the same room and time that the normal Hasbro panel is at.

I'm guessing they'll reveal perhaps one or two new toys at SDCC, but then save later reveals for New York Comic-Con in October. That's what they did last year, as far as I can remember the only new toys Hasbro revealed at SDCC 2015 were Victorion, the first couple of G2 Combiners and Voyager Scattershot, and then Titans Return wave 1 was revealed at New York Comic Con a couple of months later. I'm not expecting Titans Return wave 3 to come up at SDCC, they seem to be focusing mostly on the Combiner Wars cartoon and the upcoming IDW titles at this year's SDCC.

Whoa, yeah, why would they do that? Don't they know there are TF fans who want to go to every TF panel? Fans of both the comics and the cartoons? That is some really poor planning on their part. :???:
