SDCC 2016: Hot Toys

Without looking you can probably get the gist of what Hot Toys had on display: Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Civil War, and Star Wars. That's not due to a lack of originality on their part; that's simply the zeitgeist of nerddom right n...

SDCC 2016: Transformers from Hasbro

When you have to display at multiple toy shows a year it's hard to keep things fresh and exciting. Hasbro did a pretty good job last year between Toy Fair, BotCon, San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con, and in 2016 they were off to a g...

Massive number of upcoming Transformers images leaked online

Normally I'd try to avoid posting unconfirmed rumors and reference art as news outside a quick comment in a related report. But Transformers news sites are going crazy over a large cache of leaked images ranging from control art to paint di...
