SDCC 2012 Preview Night

Wednesday is technically the first day of the San Diego Comic-Con where Hollywood comes out to promote their latest wares to geeks and the press. It is more commonly referred to has Preview Night since since people are still arriving with booths and tables still getting prepped. Still it gives people a chance to tour what has been setup, including what Hasbro and High Moon Studios have for their booths. There will be several Transformers related panels, with Hasbro announcing how they are participating at SDCC.

Their exclusives proved to be especially popular probably due to Fall of Cybertron Bruticus. That one might be hard to come by but at least the Amazon exclusive repaint is currently up for pre-order for $59.99, just be aware its release date isn't until late November. All this means lots of images of current and upcoming Transformer products that will be coming out over the next six or so months. High Moon Studios' booth that is covered with concept art for Fall of Cybertron.

While most of Transformers on display are the same as from April's Botcon, there are exceptions. The biggest one is the Kre-O product line. Based on the gallery, Hasbro is going hog wild on this line with an emphasis on the Kreon figures. There are dozens of new Kreons with a line called "Micro Changers" that actually can "transform" by reconfiguring their parts. As the image shows, this includes an emphasis on the combiners with Kreons of the Combaticons, Aerialbots, Stunticons, and Predacons.

So far, the only info available is a Wave 1 of 12 Kreons will be available in September for $2.99. The figures will be blind-packs so will not be able to tell what you got until open it. Hasbro will likely reveal exactly how the combiners sets and more will be sold at one of their panels this weekend. The display cases also provided the first look at TF Prime voyager Thundertron and deluxes Kup and Rumble. Hit the links below to see all the TFs on display.
