Las Vegas Licensing Expo is the San Diego Comic-Con for the businessmen. But that doesn't mean the expo has to be dull and boring. On the contrary, it's colorful as a mini SDCC.
At this year's Expo one company has stolen the spotlight; Hasbro. Dubbed by the press as "The Master Transformer"
, the company has presented its upcoming ventures including Transformers: Robots In Disguise and Angry Birds: Transformers. Though the event was held a month ago, it is only now that the Press and Media has started to reveal what was there at the Licensing Expo 2014.
We have recieved some images and information regarding Transformers: Robots In Disguise from the expo for you to have a look. The info includes:
Theme of the Transformers: Robots In Disguise
Licensed Apparel And Merchandise
Transformers: Angry Birds Game Info
"The Transformers Effect"
You can read all about them, after the jump.
More news will come our way in less than a week's time. Stick with TFW2005 for the best SDCC 2014 Transformers news coverage.Read Replies (0)

Takara-Tomy will be holding a special Transformers Expo in Yokohama City's Yokohama Exhibition Hall from August 9th to 17th. There are going to be several exclusive Transformers items
at the event, including:
Age of Extinction Movie Advanced Series Evasion Nemesis Prime
Movie Advanced Series Voyager class Black Knight Grimlock
A reissued Masterpiece Sideswipe, sans Autobot symbol on his chest
Q Transformers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, cute little Choro Q versions of their Movie vehicles
A new lineup called the "Legends Commander Series". The first four releases will be new releases of Robot Masters G1 Optimus Prime, Beast Wars Optimus Primal and Beast Wars Second Lio Convoy, with the fourth slot taken by a redeco of Age of Extinction One Step Changer Optimus Prime. We suspect these will eventually be mass retail rather than just at-show exclusives.
Check out images of all nine toys after the break.Read Replies (0)
