UK Toy Fair 2013 To Feature Transformers: Prime – Beast Hunters Toyline

UK-Toy-Fair-2013-Transformers-Prime-Beast-Hunters

Every year, the 1st quarter brings joy for toy collectors worldwide. There’s a very good reason for this; Toy Fairs are happening all over the world.

One of the earliest fairs is the UK Toy Fair and this year it’s no exception. UK Toy Fair 2013 is just around the corner, held from 22nd to 24th January at the Olympia Grand Hall, London.

UK toy companies are busy these days, posting articles and newspaper advertisements to promote their products showcasing at the upcoming event. Hasbro UK is doing it too. TFW2005 found two small articles dedicated what to expect at the UK Toy Fair. They feature possible Transformers: PrimeBeast Hunters European Toyline Release Schedules. Of course these are vague statements to promote the upcoming line and may vary. Also, Hasbro UK is the main distributor for our German fans as well. They didn’t forget to mention when Germany can expect to see the Beast Hunters line.

Regarding UK Toy Fair 2013:
“Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters will be the touchstone for the award winning animated series from Hasbro Studios, with new action figures due to roll out in Spring 2013.”

A similar statement was also made for Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair Nürnberg 2013:
“Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters will be the touchstone for the award winning animated series from Hasbro Studios, as new action figures will be launched in June 2013.”

If you come across such advertisements and articles, feel free to share with us.

    As I said... "vague statements"; The line may come early than what was told.

    UK Toyfair = Shorthand for 'No public photos before New York Toy Fair.'

    What about the 40 Generations figures and a mule they promised.....?

    (sigh) Not everyone cares about that Prime stuff

    This is the Con that comes out with cool info but is very good at making sure zero pictures come from it. Then we all suffer and wait a few weeks until NYTF. Fun times.

    There's no reason "NOT" to show Beast Hunters when at least a modest portion of it will be out before any of the Toyfairs anyway.

    I'm kind of curious if Hasbro (and some others) have any plans to release any new Boys Brands of any real stand out merit as it's been a very long time now since anything has come along that's got me very excited.

    Sure I can see some merit in some modern lines but \I'm looking for something genuinely fun and collectable with it's own Distinct play pattern. and not just Build brick sets, Toy cars, and fairly banal Action Figures.

    I'm looking for things with the Transformation play pattern with mix and match potential and visual interest. features that were very common in the 80's and 90's and a bit thin on the ground these days.

    In a way it's a bit like when all those fairly static Kenner Action Figure lines like Aliens/Batman/Terminator/Predator were out - they were just pretty basic action figures sure some had some merit and I remain very fond of Kenners Aliens and Jurrasic Park lines in particular.

    But They don't have that unique selling point and unique play pattern that things like Starcom, MASK, Centrurions, Microman/Micronauts even Air Raiders had.

    I'm not against Action Figures at all really - it's that isn't all I want to see.

    I'm so lacking for something fun an quirky i'm even considering buying Mix and Match Hotwheels car toys as at least they contain some of those similar elements to brands like Parasites,RoadBlasters or Wheeled Warriors. Though maybe I might just car boot them if they show up.

    I would be a bit hesitant that Hasbro are smart enough to handle Brands like Micronauts or MASK properly though. perhaps the only way Mask can be done right is as a Masterpiece line.

    P.S.

    I do wonder too if the New Gi Joe toy line might actually get released in the UK now after the Movie was delayed ?

    And Oh.. Yes I'd nearly forgotten about the high number of Generations figures they hyped.

    I have been wondering about if they might do figures based on the other TF Videogames though especially as some of the designs look quite saleable. And We've not had very much hugely exciting mentioned since Starscream came out. (unless you count Takara's Ratbat).
