Toy Fair 2019 – Super7 – Transformers

Want to get my attention?  Show me Transformers that look like Action Masters!  These ReAction figures look like the 2019 update of the original G1 action figure line up, and I can’t wait to see these in person!  The intent of the Action Masters was to provide cartoon styled poseable action figures, and these seem to do the same.  Granted, we don’t have transforming weapons/partners like we did with the Action Masters; something tells me Hasbro wouldn’t like that.  I’m kind of reminded by the Heroes of Cybertron vinyl figure line from fifteen years ago, but these look to be

Toy Fair 2019 – Hasbro Transformers Studio Series

Transformers Studio Series is a great way to provide toys from the movies that are relatively to scale.  Lots of fans loved the original releases from 2007 to today, but sometimes toys were over or undersized.  The Studio Series line tries to provide scales that are pretty spot on. Included at Toy Fair were the new Optimus Prime from Bumblebee (I want!) KSI, Dropkick, Drift, Hightower, and Optimus Prime with trailer! Note: Some Movie Masterpiece toys accidentally made it into this gallery.  Whoops! Pictures by Steve Kushnir

Toy Fair 2019 – Hasbro Pulse – Ectotron, Selects Megatron

Surprising everybody on Friday was Ectotron, the Transformers/Ghostbusters crossover toy exclusive to HasbroPulse.com, Gamestop, and EB Games.  This toy was on display at Toy Fair in his 80’s glory, including his Generation 1 styled box.  That packaging sealed the deal for many fans who were on the fence. But HasbroPulse also had another surprise for fans – Selects Megatron, in an “Unreleased G2 Color Scheme”.  This toy is also available on HasbroPulse for $29.99.  Take a look at the gallery!
