    Thanks to Hasbro Australia, we were once again allowed to take a small number of photos of this year's Transformers exhibit at the Australian Toy & Hobby Fair in Melbourne (our 12th year covering the Transformers display at the Hasbro exhibit).
    There weren't any toys on display that wasn't revealed at the New York Toyfair last month, but we do get another look at some upcoming items that should be out in Australia later this year.
    There were five sections in the Transformers corner of the Hasbro exhibit (plus two Rescue Bots in the Playskool Heroes section).... from the left was Bumblebee Movie toys (nothing new), Studio Series (just some wave 1 samples), Siege (wave one toys, plus Omega Supreme, Refraktor/Reflector, Red Alert and Jetfire), Cyberverse (including some Year 2 Spark Armor), Botbots (with a sample of figures from all three series for 2019, including the special Arcade Renegades Surprise 16-pack that was revealed in the press release from the New York Toyfair).

    The boxes for Jetfire and Omega Supreme look rad. And Cyberverse is the best kids line in a very long time.

    Siege just looks so good. Jetfire and Omega Supreme will easily make many "Best Of" lists.
    Also, those Tiny Turbo Changers look pretty darn awesome! I hate blind bags, but I will definitely hunt those down.

    Would it kill them to release sticker sheets alongside those Tiny Turbo Changers? The moulding looks okay, but the lack of paint is a huge turn off.

    With them showing the big guy himself Omega Supreme then the orginal release. Does that mean we are going to possibly get a RE-RELEASE of the g1 Omega Supreme figure in US box? I'd so buy that if Hasbro does reissue him in US box. So I'm going to say come on Hasbro please please re-release the orginal Omega Supreme cause i so want a shot at one in my collection.

    I'm glad I was able to meet @Vangelus before he died from excitement from Omega Spreem

    Somewhere right now, Vangelus is squirming with fanboy hope for that Spreem to mean something down the road in terms of new figures. Is Hasbro crazy enough to do Titan Class Omega Spreem? 


    I hope so.

    How long until we see Cyberverse Cheetor figures? We all know they're going to happen, but we haven't seen anything yet.

    Judging from the picture with Siege Omega with the g1 toy, looks like the new version will be smaller than the titan city bots and about as tall as Devastator.

    Thanks, man! You got me an answer that Hasblow couldn't be bothered to--the "Grand Opening Surprise" at Amazon.ca is in fact Arcade Renegades.
