    As the title says, the panel will be in about an hour.

    Everyone kept saying they will most likely show us, what Botcon attendees got to see at that show, at SDCC.

    So I, myself, am thinking they will still be selfish and withhold all of the pics of the new stuff, shown at Botcon, at their panel today.

    Who else thinks they will be selfish, and who thinks they will actually be kind enough to show the rest of us, wanting to see their new products?

    Going by previous years, most of the stuff will be shown to the public, but there may be one or two "super-advanced" sneak-peeks that don't get brought up.

    I think you'll see at least 50% of what was shown at Botcon if not more.

    But how do you get "selfish" out of not showing anything?

    LOL Hasbro is going to produce thousands of toys, ship them from China to Rhode Island, and keep them ALL.

    Chances are we'll see most, if not all, of what was revealed at Botcon. We might even get to see some stuff never seen before, or even known about before. If I'm not mistaken Universe Inferno was revealed at SDCC.

    Edit: Well...definitely eating my words. Didn't show anything we hadn't seen before. Quite disappointing, tbh. The TF-Prime panel should, theoretically at the very least, be better...

    I'm going to assume they are showing more of the Hub stuff.

    What the crap was that? Nothing new at all? Man, I wanted to see what all those Generations toys from Botcon's panel look like.

    I can read Hasbro like an open book. Sometimes I wonder why people support them.

    No showing us the toys from Botcon (Scourge, Jazz).

    I am curious, where in that panel did they say they won't give us anymore WFC toys? That would be messed up if they didn't, as the characters in that game have some really cool toy potential (Air Raid).

    Figures about corporations... You fill their pockets full of money, and they never give you what they want, unless they want to.

    "For toys beyond Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron and Soundwave there are no new characters planned to be made at this time. "

    The last three words should be familiar to anyone who's been here a while.

    I was skeptical about the panel, but it fell short of even those expectations.
