Of course the Hasbro exhibit is the primary focus, and as the major exhibitors are getting tougher to get into, this year an official appointment

As the greatest series of Transformers comes to a close after 30 years... an interview of Simon Furman about what we can expect from Issue 100 (out later this month)... and some thoughts about how and why it overwrites the Gen2 comic.
