There’s no shortage of excitement for Hasbro’s annual San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. Every year, the HasbroToyShop booth is one of the most popular stops on the exhibit floor, and its lines rival Ballroom 20 and Hall H, so much that it’s even earned a hashtag all of its own when we cover line queues for our followers.
The anticipation for Hasbro’s SDCC exclusives is so high, the pre-con announcements of what Hasbro will be bringing are generally an event unto themselves. It’s one our most popular topics on the blog with our readers leading up to SDCC.
We’ll be keeping a list of the Hasbro SDCC 2013 exclusives in this master post, and we’ll be updating as they are announced.
[UPDATE JUNE 28]
Hero Complex has announced three new Transformers exclusives for this year’s SDCC.
Here are descriptions of the announced exclusives, available at Booth #3329. Check out the post at Hero Complex for complete descriptions and more pictures.
The Transformers Titan Guardians action figure set ($39.99 each): Features five classic characters: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Grimlock.
Shockwave’s Laboratory ($49.99): Inspired by the Hub TV series Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters, this set features the evil Decepticon scientist and his cloning chamber, as well as a Commander Class Predaking figure.
“We’ve changed things up a bit in this set, making its components a little different than other figures available in the mainline toys,” Jivoin said. “For example, the Voyager-scale Shockwave in this set is in Prime styling but features G1 deco. Similarly the Commander scale Predaking features a translucent Energon-infused treatment.”
The Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex ($149.99): Standing more than two feet tall, this exclusive “converts from robot into a rolling battle platform, and to an Autobot city, inhabited by 12 miniature Autobot and Decepticon figures, as well as a Legends-scale Scamper figure”.
[UPDATE JUNE 6]
We have two updates today, one new exclusive and some packaging from one of yesterday’s announcements.
