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.

So about a week ago I had seen some buzz across the comic book webs about an upcoming free comic from the folks at IDW Publishing and Schick Razorblades if you can believe it.
