    These are today's photos, posted up in batches, so keep coming back until I note that there are no more.

    The Convention Centre, at about 9.40am.

    Inside, at the Hasbro exhibit - so many more exhibitors are walled off now... it was like a maze this year in some parts, when it used to be quite open.

    Part 2....

    Generations.

    Trypticon diorama.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Heaps of little posts for the Titanmasters (feet) to be plugged into.
    [​IMG]

    Insecticons and Krok having a snack.
    [​IMG]

    Size comparison of Trypticon to the original 80s Trypticon (using the Japanese Gigastorm as a stand-in for the 1985 Trypticon toy).
    The new Trypticon is about double the length, width and height of Gigastorm/Trypticon.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Full-Tilt.
    [​IMG]

    The two samples had different coloured guns for Full-Tilt, so the final version is either black or purple.
    [​IMG]

    Octane with Octone.
    [​IMG]

    Blitzwing.
    [​IMG]

    Seaspray
    [​IMG]

    Ramhorn.
    [​IMG]

    Topspin and Twintwist.
    [​IMG]


    The Titanmaster heads in the exclusive 5-packs that were on display at the New York Toyfair (Thunderwing and Rodimus), were found among the dozens of Titanmsaters in the diorama, and must have been shipped to Australia with the other toys by accident. They were both diecast too (the face part), but Rodimus' face was hand painted, so the final version of that one will look significantly different.
    I had a bit of fun though, sticking the Thunderwing on Full-tilt's body...
    [​IMG]

    ...and put Rodimus' head on the Hot Rod body.
    [​IMG]

    The differences between the Rodimus head(red/black) and the Hot Rod head (grey).
    [​IMG]

    Some wave 4 & 5 character cards that were going to be thrown out. Wave 4 (Brawn, Roadburn) are already out, but wave 5 (Seaspray & Cosmos) are still yet to be released.

    Nice display. I really like that they have some of the G1 counterparts there next to their updated versions. Very cool.

    Also, Gigastorm next to Trypticon shows just how massive that guy is going to be!

    Thanks for the pics!

    The two tone colour scheme works so much better than what we saw at Toyfair. Really Like the look of this guy now.
    Thanks for all the pictures @griffin-of-oz

    New Bumblebee Face mask. Looks like a mix between his movie look and his RID look. Possibly his upgraded look when he becomes the Last Knight.

    There is Also an Optimus Prime mask with the TF Prime design, I think is just to make mask and helmets different from each other.

    Part 3...

    Movie section.

    I didn't get much time with the Movie toys, as I prioritised the Generations toys, because that's the line that fans here are most interested in at the moment. So I didn't get many photos, and most of the ones here are blown up from one photo, so look blurry. I figured I should include these images though, as there wasn't much packaging on display at the New York Toyfair.
    I also wasn't allowed to take photos of the backs of the packaging, in case it reveals co-sell items that aren't to be revealed yet.

    The Movie toys have the same release date here as in America - April 24th.
    [​IMG]

    Deluxe Barricade and Berzerker.
    [​IMG]

    Deluxe Slug, Slash and Steelbane.
