Default 2012 Toyfair Australia photos

Photos I took at the Toyfair today... to go with the notes in this topic.

The Entrance sign.


Entrance to the hall.


Inside.


The Hasbro exhibit.


Inside the Hasbro exhibit.


The Entire Transformers Action Figure Display.


Each of the shelves...
TFPrime Legion & Commander Classes.


Vehicle Playsets - Driller/Knock Out & Starhammer/Wheeljack


Optimus Maximus


Packaging

.

.

.
Figure close-up (the final figure, not a painted prototype like at other Toyfairs).

.
A close-up showing the Commander Class Optimus using the suit like a giant exosuit.


Bot Shots


More Bot Shots and Remote Controlled figures.


Side of the two Bot Shot 3-packs, showing their item numbers (which the US Toyfair reports didn't include).


Deluxe and Voyager TFPrime.


Weaponizers and Generations Wave 1.


And after a bit of creative posing (inspired by Christalcase), the first wave of Generations.


Masks and 2-pack.


Clothing display (each year they show off licensed non-toy merchandise, to inspire retailers to stock more than just toys... it doesn't mean any of
those particular items will ever be released here).


The flyer for the competition/promotion for Australia.


TFPrime Voyager Bulkhead box.

.

.

.
TFPrime Voyager Starscream box (also wave 2).

.

.


That's all the Transformers photos.

The other Hasbro photos...
Avengers.


Star Wars


Spiderman "Jumpstarters" (exactly the same concept and design - pull back and they jump up to transfom).


My Little Pony...

.


On the outer wall of the Hasbro exhibit, there was this alcove which you could have your photo taken as if you were a life-size action figure in
Avengers packaging... I wasn't able to get my own photo taken though, so had to resort to taking this of someone else. (it reminded me of the
"Collector" Halloween episode of the Simpsons)


The wall outside the Lego exhibit.

Wow - that's great, Griffin. How badly did you want to take the Transformers section home with you?

Some of those photos have to be world firsts - I love that black and gold recolour of Bot Shots Megatron and launcher (with Brawl):

Nah, they wouldn't let me. And didn't have a product booklet either.

Those four on that shelf are part of the "Battle for the Matrix" 4-pack (which was on display in America... but it doesn't mean we'll get it here, as they didn't have the packaging there - they may have just had random figures there to fill out the Bot Shots shelf.

Well the oversized weapons gimmick has killed the tiny amount of interest I had in the larger Prime figures. Bulkhead will be tiny and Starscream looks terrible with it added.

I concur trunks. Starscream looks ridiculous....

So who is in wave 2 deluxes? And what happend to that big jet we saw a prototype of ages ago? Slightly disappointed about Maximus as well, I wanted something a bit more 'city' looking.

Looking forward to seeing the driller and wheeljack's ship! Slim pickings methinks...

thanks for all the pics though Griff! Good work!

Wave 2 Deluxes are Arcee and Ratchet, which have recently been found in America.
