Hasbro is preparing for its first ever convention – HASCON – and what's a convention without some exclusives?
HASCON will be hosted Sept. 8 thru 10 at the Rhode Island Convention Center and will see the company celebrating its various properties such as NERF, My Little Pony, Magic: The Gathering, G.I. Joe and, of course, Transformers. The first two exclusive products have been announced for the show, and both are pretty awesome.
First up, we have a Titans Return version of Arcee in her classic colors from the 1980s cartoon series. This is going to be a must-have for long-time Transformers fans.
TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS TITANS RETURN ARCEE SPECIAL EDITION SET (Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99/Available at HASCON): The Hasbro TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS TITANS RETURN ARCEE SET lets you harness the power of not 1 Titan Master, but 2! Featuring a G1-inspired Titans Return Deluxe Class Arcee figure with Titan Master and a special edition Titan Master Ultra Magnus figure with die-cast parts. The set also includes 2 blaster accessories, 2 collector cards and special edition TRANSFORMERS packaging and custom art for the ultimate play-at-home experience. The Titan Master figures become the head of Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader Class Titans Return figures (each sold separately).
The second Transformers exclusive is one of those items where you go, "How has this not happened before now?" There will be a transforming power bank that converts into an Optimus Prime figure in 16 steps. At 6500mAh it's not the biggest power bank on the block, but is that really the reason anyone would be purchasing this?
TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME CONVERTING POWER BANK (Ages 14 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available at HASCON): Fate rarely calls upon us at the time of our choosing. When it does, the Hasbro TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME CONVERTING POWER BANK figure will help you be ready and powered up with the spark of a Prime! This special edition power bank converts between robot and charger modes in 16 steps and comes with a blue-Energon LED Light-up sword accessory, mobile phone stand and a Micro USB/USB charging cable. Compatible with most devices the TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME CONVERTING POWER BANK figure supports 6500mAh of battery power so you can roll out without worry.
