Hascon 2017 was a bit of a moment for us here at MUReview, and at litlgeeks. We’ve always had a place in our heart for Transformers, ever since the original G1 TV series that I myself grew up with. But, when I saw that Rodimus Prime from Power of the Primes in the display case, something tripped in my brain and it’s been all down hill from there…so, …Transformers, yeah. Hasbro announced a ton of fantastic new bots, let’s have a look.
Transformers Titans Return Voyager Class Overlord
I am in love with Transformers all over again. It happened when I couldn’t not pick up a Hot Rod and Firedrive figure at Target one day. It’s been downhill from there. I have to be honest though, there have been folks reviewing Transformers figures for a long time that are going to do it far better than me. I’ve done a few, Arcee for starters. One…I’ve done one, just Arcee. I look forward to doing more in the future though, I mentioned Rodimus….maybe we take a look at Trypticon after Christmas? For now, one of Trypticon’s buddies (and a Transformer he’ll connect to!) Overlord!
HASCON 2017 Exclusive: Transformers Arcee
Welcome to this historic moment in MUReview history. Our second ever Transformers review! (our first was in the SDCC IDW set – Jetfire…it was amazing, but it was only one…if I do two…you can rest assured there will be more go forward…thus, historic). This also happens to be our third of four looks at HASCON exclusives. MUReview and litlgeeks hit the HASCON show floor with heavy intentions upon Marvel, Marvel Legends, and pure fun toys for the litlgeeks. We achieved those intentions and brought you an insane amount of coverage from HASCON. We loved everything we saw out of Marvel, all of the announcements were fantastic. One of the biggest jaw droppers for us at the show though (shhhh don’t tell the Marvel team), was the Transformers Generations Rodimus Prime set. The figure can start out as Hot Rod, and you can “evolve” him into a full Rodimus Prime with trailer and all. I can’t wait for it to come out, but you’ll ask, why am I blathering on about that when this review is for Arcee…well, one it’s not out yet, so this review isn’t about him, two, Arcee was the Transformers exclusive for HASCON and she’s a stunning Transformer that I’d of been crazy to pass up, three, Rodimus is gonna need Transformers to hang out with on my shelf, and he and Arcee, they were cool with each other back in the day so….
