News Post: Hasbro Transformers: Bumblebee Movie Toys To Be Showcased At Licensing Expo 2018
Not so fast hasbrother
Cool. Consider me hyped!!!
So the hype begins!
Are these gonna be the mainline (Generations/SS) toys, or the gimmicky kid toys?
Oh wow, that means we'll likely see the designs and maybe even new characters in less than two weeks.
I hope they release a trailer or at least official stills before then. I'd rather see the movie versions of the designs before seeing the toys. If not, it will still be cool.
We may not get the full picture here. Attending journalists usually take one or two random pics and do not take the entire booth's content. You can see that from the 2016 pics where several Tiny Turbo Changers are caught on camera at the bottom of a pic of an Optimus Prime statue. There were more toys but general journalists do not see an importance to capture them. But a fan would, if they attended.
Probably a bit of both honestly if its not a private thing I'd expect there to be a few characters across platforms.
Like lets say there are simple kiddie toys for a few characters like Mabey those energon igniters we heard about. And Mabey said character or 2 represented agian in collector scale just as a tease Mabey just bumblebee is a good bet.
Too bad just like every other movie toy they will look like shit and shelf warm.
So the embargo against posting the pics we have already seen might be lifted? Cool.
Here's hoping for good pics of the BB MPM that the leaked ko pics are based on.
I guess the question now is should Bay-haters care or not?
Note: I'm not asking Bay's fans (since I know where that convo will end up) I'm asking the actual Hasbro staff that appear at these Convention panels who always thank us before showing new CHUG figures.
I don't know Las Vegas; am I the only one who misread Mandalay Bay Convention Center as something else?

The hype begins. Hope this will showcase some great stuff.
Hopefully we get some juicy details, one way or another.
All I'm asking for is a good legends sized bug to help complete my chug minibots. The TR bb sucks, in my humble opinion xD
I'm not super happy since POTP looks stalled for months while I'm seeing bayverse designs hitting the shelf
This would be hilarious if you were joking.
But seriously, 4/6 movie toylines have been successful, which is a really good track record on its own. It's too early too judge the MPM and the Studio Series line at the moment but seeing that they're doing pretty good right now, that would bump the numbers up to 6/8. I mean, the demand is clearly there or we wouldn't have 3 movie lines running simultaneously right now. It's fine if you don't collect them, but there's no need to spread around false assumptions.
Surprised Buzzfeed isn't covering this....
