The first annual HasCon has come and went and while we didn’t attend we’ve been keeping a close bit of scrutiny on any reveals from the event and with that being said there were several brand new action figures from “The Transformers” line. To say that this is a mega-popular license for Hasbro Toys would be an understatement so what I’ve done is shared the images of the figures along with their awesome artwork. I will not be saying much since you don’t need your “oohs” and “ahhs” interrupted. Here we go.
If you’ve been reading this site for even a shorter time than most others, you know how we just love to hit the convention circuit and can frequently be found in attendance as the accredited media covering wonderful events like the NY Comic Con and The American International Toy Fair. Since we love to raise awareness about cool events as much as being a part of them, its with great pleasure that I share the official Press Release about the first ever Hasbro HASCON. Check out the full information below and I’ll return at the close. See you soon.
