As a regular attendee of the American International Toy Fair, it’s great to keep my fellow geeks in the know about stuff that is beyond the realms of cool. Recently I’ve begun receiving transmissions from the publicity elite regarding some exclusives that will be available for purchase at the upcoming Comic Con International: San Diego or SDCC for the sake of brevity. Check out this brief on Hasbro’s “Transformers” line and an item that you will ONLY be able to purchase at this convention. Read on err “Roll Out”…..

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly I’m not hitting the San Diego convention despite it being one of those events that I have long wanted to attend. It’s just too hard logistically to pull off but there are plenty of websites with in-depth posts to make us feel as though we were there. So what do you think of this Optimus Prime? He looks pretty bad ass to me and he is my favorite Autobot. My fave Decepticon is of course Megatron but he is not the subject of this exclusive. Judging from the photos that were provided this is surely something that any of the fans of the “Transformers” line of stuff is going to want to add to their collection. I honestly don’t think that the price point is all that bad either. Let’s remember that not only do we get this awesome figure which is limited, we also get a piece of prop from the upcoming film. If you are not heading to the convention and know some friends who are you might want to try to convince them to get you one of these. I am already poking around with some people for my own collecting needs so why should you be any different. You can let me know what you think of this exclusive figure down in the comments section below and if you haven’t seen any of our “Transformers: The Last Knight” trailer posts, just CLICK HERE to see the latest one that was uploaded. Ciao for now.
