SDCC 2015: Hasbro Officially Reveals Star Wars, Marvel, and Transformers Exclusives

SDCC 2015 Hasbro Exclusive Special Edition Toys

With less than a month to go before the big show, Hasbro has finally unveiled their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. Sure, we’d caught glimpses – Hasbro teased the Transformers Devastator on Facebook and shared the Marvel Legends Dr. Strange Book of Vishanti set with USA Today, and we got a sneak peek at the Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper on eBay.

But there’s more… all with official descriptions and prices from Hasbro, with high res photos to boot. Even if you’re not making it to San Diego, Hasbro will offer these exclusives after the show at HasbroToyShop.com. So get your wallets ready!

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, and Transformers Optimus Prime

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, Transformers Optimus Prime

In this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got some tried and true favorites plus a new champ:

  • Marvel Legends Rogue by Loose Collector – the DC Direct Hush Poison Ivy has been a go-to head for the likes of Rogue and Jean Grey for years, but the Loose Collector crew is one of the few capable of executing the recipe so cleanly – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 7:03PM PST
  • WWE Wrestlemania 31 Seth Rollins by highlytales88 – just how much is a WWE Heavyweight championship worth? – after snatching the title from Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31, this Seth Rollins custom skyrocketed in price, getting bid up by fans looking to secure memorabilia from his championship run – ends Thursday, April 9 at 4:57PM PST
  • Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime by billmeistercustoms – it’s been a while since I’ve seen a Masterpiece Optimus Prime, but with as many as there have been, and as many as there will be, it makes you wonder just how much more Takara and Hasbro could charge for a metallic paint job – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 11:16AM PST

In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

Toy Fair 2015: Hasbro Transformers (including Devastator Video Fly-Bys)

Toy Fair 2015 Hasbro Transformers Devastator and More (5 of 11)

Hasbro unveiled the latest and largest in their Combiner Wars line, going back to the beginning with Devastator. Made up of six Voyager class Constructicons, Devastator will be the biggest Combiner yet.

I’ve got video fly-bys of Devastator in his combined form and the individual Constructicons in their robot and vehicle modes. For the rest Transformers display, I took some group shots but not much else. Yes, I admit it – I’m not a very good Transfan.

ThreeA Toys Megatron Up for Pre-Order Tonight

3A Toys Transformers Megatron 1

Hot on the heels of their first Transformers premium scale figure, Bumblebee, 3A Toys will have the big bad himself, Megatron, up for pre-order tonight. Like Bumblebee, Megatron features a movie-accurate, detailed sculpt, is super-articulated with over 70 POA, and features light-up LED eyes. You won’t be transforming him into a vehicle mode, but with this amount of detail you’d probably need the Allspark itself to pull that off.

Megatron stands over 1.5 feet tall (Bumblebee checks in at 15 inches), so he’s appropriately massive. Want to roll out with Megatron? Check out Bambalandstore at 8PM EST tonight. The Bambaland exclusive Megatron comes with the Matrix of Leadership and a tattered cloak to cover up that battle damage. Can’t wait for more? Expect Optimus Prime and Starscream right around the corner.

Transformers “Combiner Fan Built Combiner” Design App Now Live

Transformers Combiner Wars Fan Built Bot 1

Hasbro recently announced they would be asking fans for their input in another edition of the “Fan Built Bot” poll. This time around it’s the “Fan Built Combiner” – fans will be creating a team of Transformers that combine into a single massive new character.

Starting today, fans can download the official Transformers apps (on iOS and Android) to participate in weekly design stages, three in total. In addition, Toys R Us will have a bonus design question on the Toys R Us Twitter feed on February 18. Hasbro will reveal the full results later this year, and the new Combiner will join the Transformers Generations: Combiner Wars toy line, which debut this month.

Transfans, roll out (and start designing!)
