The mood lighting at Hasbro’s ‘Twas the Night Before (New York Comic Con) party was great for getting us in a festive mood, but is hell on the smart phone I have convinced myself is better than lugging around a few pounds of camera gear. (How’d I do? Check out my own pics from the event.) But Hasbro planned ahead, sharing press pics of pretty much all the reveals from this evening’s soiree.
And of course, we’re sharing them with you. We’ve got the official pics from Marvel, Star Wars, Transformers, KRE-O, and the latest of the Angry Birds mash-ups – Angry Birds Transformers. Enjoy!

It’s the eve of New York Comic Con, which means it’s time for another ‘Twas the Night Before… bash hosted by Hasbro. For the past few years, they’ve opted to hold an intimate (well, compared to the Con itself) cocktail party the night before NYCC in lieu of exhibiting at the show themselves.
It’s always a fun time, and we’ve got the latest reveals from Marvel, Star Wars, Transformers, and more, in our Hasbro ‘Twas the Night Before album.
I can admit to not knowing a whole lot about Transformers – luckily Sandman was able to join me at a special Transformers event this morning, where the Hasbro team revealed a sneak peek at the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars line. Combiners will be one of the big pushes for Hasbro at mass market retail in 2015.
The design team told us that for the inspiration of this line, they started with their earlier release of Bruticus, and gathered a lot of feedback from the collector community. The result should be pleasing – I think the figures look like they’ve got a lot more substance and heft. Hopefully, Sandman can weigh in with some more pics from the booth and his thoughts on the future of Transformers. But for now, I hope this quick look can tide you over.
Things From Another World is having its Saint Patrick’s Day sale, and they’ve got 240 items up to half off in their Toy section. They’ve got stuff from Funko, NECA, Hasbro, Mattel, Diamond Select Toys, and more. I’ve got my eye on this Hanna Barbera Space Ghost – at $10.49 it’s a steal for a six-incher. I’ll need to take a closer look to see what else there is to take home. Happy shopping!
