    It dose not look like it, likely turning out to be a fizzer (or the hype fizzled out)

    Whelp, seems like Hasbro is a no-show at the Hong Kong Toy & Game Fair.
    Last year they unveiled two MPMs at an event in Shanghai at the end of January. Perhaps they will do the same thing again this year?

    So far all MPMs have been initially revealed by Hasbro Asia in mainland China or Hong Kong, so I don't expect Hasbro to break that tradition.

    Everyone fingers crossed?

    Come on Flame toys, I need some new kits. Enough rehashing Optimus and the seekers. Reveal some new stuff or update projects like the beast wars Convoys, Hound and Kuro Kara Kuri Hot Rod.

    Great work there Hasbro, go to a toy fair and not actually display anything. No doubt in my mind that that business stuff you did COULD ONLY have been done in the middle of a toy fair, and definitely not done in like, an office.

    You do realize that its been said countless times that nothing comes out of london toy fair for multiple reasons.

    1. Its not open to the public and its only for investors / partners.

    2. There probably was new products on display but again its not a public event.

    3. Take a look back at past london toy fairs and youll see its more for clothing and other products from 3p companies.

    Aw shit, I’m actually sorry. I hadn’t noticed that. I’ll keep my post up to immortalise my brain fart but I was completely wrong.

    The annual Melbourne Toy Fair (Australia) is also not open to the public. Yet Hasbro makes a song & dance about new upcoming Toys & merch to build the hype. They even invite member griffin_of_oz & his posse to sample new Transformers toys (away from the convention site), thanks to to relationship griffin_of_oz has fostered over the years. And uploaded on this board for all to enjoy vicariously.
