August 8, 2016

For all of you who couldn’t make it to San Diego in person this year, Hasbro is offering all of their exclusives online!  Starting tomorrow, Tuesday August 9, 2016, you’ll have your chance to pick up these cool Transformers exclusives, along with your favorites from Star Wars, Marvel Legends, and others!

The Transformers got a lot of love this year at Comic-Con, so here’s a quick peek and some information so you can see exactly what you’re getting!  We’ll be taking a closer, in-depth look at these toys in the very near future, but for now, here’s some quick pictures and info.


(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $179.99/ Available at HasbroToyShop.com on August 9)

Harness the power! The TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS TITANS RETURN TITAN CLASS FORTRESS MAXIMUS Convention Edition brings the TRANSFORMERS battle into uncharted territory when the Titans Return. Fans can up their battle power by combining two additional pieces to the special FORTRESS MAXIMUS figure – the TITAN MASTER EMISSARY and CEREBROS figures. The Triple Changer FORTRESS MAXIMUS figure features robot, battle station and Autobot city modes which allows the figure to unite with TITANS RETURN LEADER CLASS figures (sold separately) to form a Cybertron City. The Convention Edition figure features collectible packaging and comes with a special edition poster, three accessories and a mighty sword for players to use in playtime battle.

This is the big one!  With loads of extra paint compared to the retail version, and the Master Sword, this is the version to get.  Cerebros also has a different head mold for his Titan Master!

For the regular, retail version of Fortress Maximus check out EntertainmentEarth.com.


(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $39.99/ Available at HasbroToyShop.com on August 9)

TRANSFORMERS continue to push the boundaries in MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE with the introduction of the SOUNDWAVE Tablet, available at 2016 San Diego Comic Con. One of TRANSFORMERS most iconic Decepticons, SOUNDWAVE, comes to life from what appears to be an ordinary mobile tablet. With a few clicks and twists, this seemingly ordinary tablet converts into the extraordinary Decepticon SOUNDWAVE, capable of detecting and jamming Autobot transmissions across the entire energy spectrum.

This toy is a miracle of modern engineering.  The transformation is fun and intuitive, I’m having trouble putting him down!  This is probably your only chance to pick him up, I wouldn’t sleep on this one!


(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $74.99/ Available at HasbroToyShop.com on August 9)

SENTINEL PRIME has plans to return Cybertron to glory, and he’ll use whatever force is necessary to achieve it. The TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS TITANS RETURN Titan Force Set allows fans to bring the battle to life. The set features a Voyager Class SENTINEL PRIME figure, DELUXE CLASS BRAINSTORM and WINDBLADE figures, as well as 2 TITAN MASTER figures – AUTOBOT TESLOR and AUTOBOT INFINITUS. Unite the figures together and power up for battle! Fans can also bring the action up a notch by combining the TITAN MASTER figures with the DELUXE CLASS, VOYAGER CLASS or LEADER CLASS Titans Return figures (each sold separately). The Triple Changer SENTINEL PRIME figure can morph between robot, space jet and train modes, with the BRAINSTORM figure converting from robot to CYBERTRONIAN jet fighter, WINDBLADE converting from robot to VTOL jet and Titan Master figures converting from robot to head.

The retail version of Sentinel Prime was cool, but this clear one is off the chain!  Includes custom foil Autobot and Decepticon faction stickers too!  Windblade is sweet, but Brainstorm is the star of this set for me!!!


(Ages 5 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $99.99/ Available at HasbroToyShop.com on August 9)

The battle between good and evil is renewed! This G.I. JOE AND THE TRANSFORMERS Set is the continuation of a successful trilogy of convention exclusives. The collection features SCARLETT and ZARTAN action figures as well as AUTOBOT POWERGLIDE and SOUNDWAVE figures in an epic showdown. A master of make-up and disguise, the ZARTAN figure comes with three additional faces but he’s no match for SCARLETT’S counter intelligence prowess and of course, her included XK-1 power crossbow. Fans can duke it out and envision SOUNDWAVE attempting to jam the transmission of AUTOBOT POWERGLIDE as he takes to the skies in an imagined dog-fighting maneuver to evade his enemy.

This is the fourth set in this series, and feature heroic Powerglide and the nefarious Soundwave!  I love these re-imagined alt modes and Joes, and since I own the previous three sets, this one was a must-have!


I’d like to thank the fine folks at Hasbro for allowing us to review and photograph these samples!  Remember,all of these Transformers, along with Hasbro’s 2016 Sand Diego Comic-Con International exclusives are available starting Tuesday, August 9, 2016, only at Hasbrotoyshop.com!!!
