    Hasbro HK is going to set up a TF booth/display at Ani-con, the annual animation and comic show in Hong Kong to be held 1st - 5th August this year. The Hong Kong fandom, H K - T F ( www.hk-tf.com ) will provide their own toy collection to help with Hasbro HK's G1 display.

    Optimus Prime is the booth!

    The event will feature some gold movie Optimus Prime toys. Only 88 have been made worldwide, with Hasbro HK giving 10 away to people who spend over HKD$3000 at their booth. There is already a line outside the convention centre with 2 days untill opening.

    Besides the gold movie Optimus Prime toy, also available at the event will be 2 special HK exclusive boxsets, limited to 100 each:

    The boxes are actually not simple cardboard boxes. They're of a synthetic, leather-like material. Very nice.

    Autobots Set contains Premium Optimus Prime, Premium Bumblebee, Premium Jazz, Premium Ironhide, and regular Ratchet:

    That's $3000 HKD (Hong Kong Dollars) which equates to only $380 (or something close to that). Really not bad for a gold prime.


    I shudder to think what those box sets will go for on ebay. Wish I had a few, lol. Very nice.

    Technically, the Gold Prime will be a freebie as you're buying $3000 worth of other stuff as well.

    And yes, those sets are freaking hot. I love how all the premiums are "shiney" and "super detailed"....and then there's Brawl :lol

    I don't think so... this is a Hasbro booth.

    Japan's Summer Wonder Festival is this weekend as well, so chances are there will be some Takara related news coming from that. Hopefully Alternity and Henkei etc.

    They have a contact for Pat Lee, but none of the current TF artists.

    That's the nicest way I can phrase it anyway...

    lol @ brawl

    They didn't have much of an option for a fifth decepticon, and having two Leader class guys would probably have been a bit much... but Deluxe Brawl was pretty lame, they could have at least tossed on a couple more paint apps or something. It wouldn't have fixed the mold, but it would have been SOMETHING.

    Zie is correct.

    btw, I just don't know how will I spend hk$3000 at their booth simply I have everything already...

    Most people at the line(s) waiting already are shooting for other limited edition HK comics exclusive which are so limited... The HK locale newspapers mentioned what they are looking for... and they didn't quote any transformers or fans whom looking for transformers... hehehe... (but of course it doesn't mean none of them are looking to buy the TF exclusive...)

    Technically, you're correct. I guess it's all in the perspective - for me it would be spending approx. $380 for the Gold Prime and getting all the other stuff for free :thumbs2:

    Im guessing Hasbro needs a name that the HK fans can relate to, since is Chinese.
