Yesterday, we brought you a list of Exhibitors and Transformers products that will be on display at this year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair. Now it’s time to look at what to expect from London Toy Fair 2017. The event will take place this January 24th at Kensington Olympia.
Due to multiple Toy Fairs falling close together, Hasbro (along with Mattel) will be skipping this year’s London Toy Fair as well. Last year, when the company took the same decision, many industry experts claimed that it is very disruptive to UK’s Toy Fair as many potential Hasbro license candidates tend to stay away from the show. Happily however, Hasbro distributor A.B.Gee officially stated that Hasbro’s 2017 toyline will be featured at London Toy Fair by them. The list includes Transformers as well as Nerf.
“Again, [A.B.Gee] will have the entire range of Mattel and Hasbro 2017 new products on display in their absence from the show.”
While we thank A.B.Gee for showcasing 2017 Hasbro products, the following list of exhibitors will also display licensed Transformers merchandise on the show floor:
- Simba Smoby
- MV Sports
Find out more on what each exhibitor is bringing to the show floor, after the jump. Stay tuned with TFW2005 for the best Transformers Toy Fair Coverage.
