More Conventions Center News
The ToysWalker page on Facebook has posted some coverage of the Toy Soul event happening right now in Hong Kong, including the Flame Toys display featuring early looks at a number of new licensed Transformers products they're working on. The previously teased Tarn is on display in full, though still just in prototype grey. Alongside is a prototype for an IDW-inspired Star Saber - and if you didn't think Star Saber looked like a Gundam already, you sure will now. A series of simpler figures or possibly model kits consisting of highly stylized redesigns of G1 characters was also on show today. Click through to see the gallery of all the Transformers merchandise!
In what will probably be our final look at Tokyo Comic Con for this year's event, we've got some additional photos from tagoal on Twitter. Among the highlights are another sighting of the movie series diorama highlighting key moments from the various films. We also get to see some of the 2018 series of Movie The Best with Hound, Jetfire, ROTF Optimus, and Nemesis Prime. A quick look at the G-Shock watches and another pass over the Masterpieces and Street Fighter crossovers rounds out this last piece of coverage. You can find all that below in the gallery!
Once again coming via 7777_diver on Twitter, we have some followup images from Tokyo Comic Con, giving us a look at MP-39 Sunstreaker, plus another angle on Dinobot, as well as a look at MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rod. Also seen is a larger look at Prime 1 Studios' offerings, including a closeup of the Barricade statue, and a nice shot of the Crosshairs statue in full color. Keep reading to see all the images!
