HASCON
« on: August 11, 2017, 06:09:00 AM »

If you are wondering why Hasbro will not be selling their SDCC exclusives this August like they traditionally do - here is the reason:

HasCon is a forthcoming annual fan convention created by Hasbro to promote its various licensed properties, including Transformers, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and Magic: The Gathering. It thus replaces the previous fan convention from Fun Publications, BotCon.[1] However, Fun Publications' G. I. Joe Convention continued to be held as of 2017. It was subsequently announced that the first HasCon is scheduled for September 8–10, 2017, at the Rhode Island Convention Center. Meanwhile, Summer Hayes, LLC., which organizes My Little Pony Fair convention, has announced that their convention won't be held for 2017, and would collaborate with HasCon instead.[2]

Ambasah,  I was sent a link from another snow trooper that stated one of the sites stated that the exclusives would not be available until September.    When I went looking for a reason why - I found this information on the new show and made the conclusion myself that this must be the reason why.  I could be totally wrong on both points.  Maybe the link I was sent is incorrect.  Maybe Old Man Ben could provide the link for the site that stated it was not going to be available for sale until September.  Either way at this point if we do not get confirmation  - if you want them be ready to order on Monday.

In the statement they specifically mention Star Wars SDCC, so it could be that they are saving the Star Wars items for Force Friday.  :luke:

As far as I know, many of the SDCC items will be hitting HTS tomorrow, August 14 at some time during the day. THis includes the Marvel, Transformers, etc items. The Star Wars items are excluded, along with a couple other items I believe. Originally the thought was that they would be held back and made available at HasCon in mid-September, however it was later made known that the Star Wars items would go live on September 1st for Force Friday.
