Hasbro reveals exclusive products at MCM Comic Con

Published on: 30th October 2018

Hasbro delighted fans and collectors with exclusive product reveals from Transformers, Star Wars and Marvel. 

Among the raft of exclusives unveiled at the convention was the Transformers Studio Series 40 Deluxe Class Transformers: Bumblebee Movie Shatter 4.5″ Action Figure. This figure converts between robot and 1971 Plymouth GTX in 23 steps and reflects the character’s size in the world of Transformers: Bumblebee. The Transformers Studio Series 37 Voyager Class Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Movie Constructicon Rampage 6.5″ Action Figure was also revealed. Converting from robot to bulldozer mode in 22 steps, the figures features vivid, movie-inspired deco and two detailed hand blaster accessories.

Hasbro also announced the launch of Transformers Botbots, a new range which launches in December and tells an engaging new story that will delight collectors of all ages. Collectible Botbots are around 1″ tall and change from normal objects to little robots in 3-5 steps. There are seven tribes to collect: Jocks, Techie Gang, Shed Heads, Sugar Shocks, Toilet Troop, Greaser Gang and the Backpack Bunch.

Each year the Star Wars universe grows even more with an impressive line-up of entertainment and toys.
At this years’ Comic Con convention Hasbro revealed the exclusive Black Series and The Vintage Collection, including the Star Wars: The Black Series 6″ Battle Droid Figure, and The Vintage Collection R2D2 Figure.

The Black Series line is the premium collectible segment that’s seen success in both collector and mass channels the world over. The 6″ Figure Assortment will continue to feature fan-favourite characters from across the saga plus fresh faces from new content, all with the quality sculpts and deco, extensive articulation, and display-ready packaging that the line is known for. The PhotoReal Technology implemented in 2017 – a 3D digital face printing technique – delivers lifelike facial decos for all movie figures.

Hasbro’s Vintage Collection 3.75″ line continues to expand, providing highly articulated action figures and vehicles with elaborate detail and true-to-story design that appeals to fans of all ages. Next year, Hasbro will expand its PhotoReal Technology to include The Vintage Collection.

Hasbro’s line of Marvel toys grows even larger in support of Marvel Studios’ 10th anniversary in 2018 and upcoming entertainment releases. Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Series features high-quality deco and articulation inspired by upcoming films and classic comics.
