    Will we get pics of RotB toys from Hasbro? Or not?

    Hell yeah! Bring on the diecast models of Mirage, Nightbird and Scourge!

    And... I'd like 1/24 scale models of the above three I've mentioned. Maybe, if they continue doing 1/64 stuff I hope to see 1/64 models of all the altmodes. :)

    I think the already-revealed RotB SS toys will be on display there. Maybe we might get to see Terrorcon Freezer's two other "weapon modes".

    Voyager Cheetor and Deluxe Airazor are going up for preorder next Tuesday (according to Jtprime, but take note that infos may change) so there's a chance we can see them displayed there too.

    It's best to not get your hopes up at all. This is the show that isn't open to the public, and we almost never get actual pictures.

    Yeah I don't expect anything from this obviously but I hope we can see the diecast cars from Jada Toys.

    Ah the yearly dose of misplaced hype and inevitable disappointment.

    Not likely. When I met him at Dortmund Comic-Con back in 2019, he had already moved on from marketing to the distribution department. He finally left Hasbro entirely last year.

    EDIT:

    Bald German Guy finally got his own, well-deserved TFWiki page.

    Hasbro has had this strange habit of dropping info on new lines at this time of year via the oddest places like USA today for example.

    But one thing of note is "sometimes" the UK shows remember Botbots exists and they didn't really bother to show up yet, so the original rumoured UK date was Feb so they might show them as a new line, but since there is a big delay, and since Hasbro don't have an open booth usually on a movie year, I think the best I will hope for is some new botbot gift set.

    But the number of times they've entirely forgotten they even have lines like Rescue Bots (or equivellent) or Botbots they might show nothing at all.

    The European shows are imprortant for Miraculous Ladybug so perhaps that might provide some indication if Playmates toys needs Firing or not.

    I've known of the London Toy Fair but this is the first time I've heard of the Nuremberg. Thought it was on trial even though it's been around for yonks.

    If these fairs don't yield TFs, hopefully the Melbourne (Australia) Toy Fair in March will give up some reveals. It too is closed to the public but if history is any indication... ;)

    This won't be a popular opinion, but I'd like these toy fairs to have world first TF reveals even if it means holding back official reveals/leaks for a week or two.

    Perhaps London to reveal retro G1 Reissue and Nuremberg to put a spot light on SS.

    Based Bald German guy.

    We'll be seeing more of those Stretch / TF toys? That's cool.

    When I met him back in 2019, he seemed like a genuinely pleasant dude. Definitely not just a corporate suit.
