    New York ComicCon today published its list of panels and exhibitors. While Hasbro is not listed as an exhbitor, there will be a Transformers panel on Thursday October 11 at 3:45. The panel description is:

    Transformers Brand & Design team members and Hasbro Studios will present big news for what's new and next with the "Robots in Disguise!" Fans won't want to miss this panel featuring exciting, never before seen "More Than Meets The Eye" reveals of what's to come in animation, action figures and more!

    IDW is also having a panel on Saturday Saturday, October 13 at 12:30 pm. The description does not formally mention Tranformers, but the Transformers books certainly could be covered.

    Finally, for those interested, I didn't see any panels for G.I. Joe, but there is a My Little Pony panel on Thursday at 6:15.

    Oh wow. That's neat that they still are doing a panel nonetheless. Hopefully this'll make up for the dismal BotCon and SDCC panels.

    So are they going to be answering questions about Season 3 for Prime in the panel then? I hope so.

    Good news! Hopefully after testing the waters last year they will feel more comfortable with actually revealing some cool stuff. Looking forward to it!

    And just like that, I once again have a pressing reason to go to NYCC. Gotta get that damn money together in time...

    Yeah, I agree. SDCC showed a lot of stuff, only a couple things were worthwhile at all (IMO). Hopefully we'll see some toys returning to the Classics-styled toys in Generations. But I won't hold my breath. By "Never before seen" they probably just mean the FoC and Prime stuff that weren't shown in plastic form at SDCC.

    "Hi! Here are ~50 new toys. ~40 of them are FOC repaints or things you have next to no interest whatsoever! And the rest are things that we only say are new reveals even though you've known about them since March in some capacity or other!"

    Thursday? The one day I can't make it, and the preview day? Ugh, why can't it be on the main day?

    If anyone can make it, ask if Magnus will be in Prime.

    Or if they've decided on who the gestalt is (not to reveal it, but to say they've chosen one)

    Also, does not being an exhibitor likely mean no exclusives this year? :(

    Would make sense at this point to be Menasor at this point right?

    I think it has everything to do with Hasbrotoyshop not being at NYCC not Hasbro themselves. So no exclusives.

    Can someone ask if the reason Season 2's introduced so few new characters is because they want the toyline to catch up to the show?

    The flowery wording made me think they were revealing stuff about IDW's MTMTE, like toys for it or something.

    Putting it in quotations didn't help.

    This sucks. Last year's Transformers panel was on a Saturday so I bought the 3-Day pass this year. Tickets for Thursday have been sold out for weeks.

    I second that especially UMagnus who so got 2 toys from Prime. Gestalt would be nice too. For gestalt, I'm hoping for Superion as the Autobots need air support.
