Hasbro sent me the new Transformers: Generations Power of the Primes Leader Evolution Optimus Prime for free to unbox and review.
When I was at Hascon I attended the Transformers session and got to see all the new figures that are being released. When I saw this Optimus Prime figure I was incredibly excited. The concept is that the figure is Orion Pax and he evolves into the Optimus Prime we know and love. Orion Pax was the name of the robot who became Optimus back in the Generation 1 days. I have never seen a good Orion Pax figure before and this one is certainly a well done one. Below I have more images and a review of what I think of the figure plus a video unboxing.

So, tonight was the Stan Bush concert at Hascon. It was part of a special VIP ticket that I couldn’t afford and so I wouldn’t have been able to go if I had been there, but I am still missing not being at the show today in the first place. So I wore this shirt today.
I really wish that I had taken the weekend off to really be able to do HASCON all three days. Being there on Day 1 and seeing everything was cool. Then I get home add see all that I missed and know that I have a pass that will let me go back but being unable to go because I have to sleep because of work is frustrating. I am seeing more reveals and more cool things. People got to meet celebrities and more. I didn’t take nearly enough photos. I took a lot of video, though. Here is my video that I left early to work on yesterday. Should’ve just stayed.
In the video below I show a bunch of the Transformers toys,
Marvel, Nerf and My Little Pony. I even got to meet and Interview John Warden the Design Manager for Transformers! He was very cool to talk with. I also ran into Amy Pontes of Lite Rock 105. We are old friends from years ago. So that was fun. IT is a long video but there are some cool things in it.
Below are some of the Transformers toys reveals that I saw live yesterday. These are all ones I would like to have in my collection, with the exception of Cloudburst. I was never into the Pretenders line. But the Optimus Prime is incredible and I really want a set of Dinobots that become a combiner. Check them out below.
