Hasbro Pulse is a place where fans come first. The Hasbro Pulse Con delivers an exclusive experience with the brands they love, a glimpse at more behind-the-scenes material, and insider details that you can’t get anywhere else.
The online event was held for two days. The 2021 edition offered live streams, panels, and surprise guests! Fans were treated to the latest updates from Marvel, G.I. Joe, Star Wars, Power Rangers, Transformers, Nerf, Ghostbusters, Fortnite, Magic: The Gathering, and a plethora of other brands!
Rise of the Beasts Designs Revealed
Rise of the Beasts, the upcoming sequel to the 2018 Transformers film Bumblebee, shared the first look at their cast of cars. Alongside Bumblebee’s Camaro we see a towering Optimus Prime, with speculation buzzing as to who the Porsche, VW Bus and motorcycle are. Director Steven Caple Jr. also shared a photo of the Predacons in the form of vehicles; will they be adapting into beast mode during the movie or is that a less-than-literal moniker?
A Meme Brought to Life!
Hasbro’s Marvel Legends line of toys takes classic moments from Marvel’s past and brings them to life. The X-Men: Animated Series Wolverine takes a viral meme and gives it another viral moment. The figure features unique sculpting and deco to recreate the classic looks in premium collectible packaging inspired by the classic 90s X-Men: The Animated Series video cassette box covers!
Who doesn’t want to own a mopey Wolverine? You can purchase this figurine on Hasbro Pulse and Shopdisney.
Suit up and Bust Some Ghosts!
During this year’s convention, Hasbro gave a sneak peek of their new Proton Pack based on the new design from Ghostbusters; Afterlife! The full reveal will take place on October 27, 2021, and they will share other toys from their “Plasma Series.”
Nerf x Halo
The Halo franchise turns 20 this year! It’s still not old enough to drink or rent a car. To celebrate the beloved franchise Nerf and Halo collaborated on this limited edition shooter! Nerf LMTD Halo Needler is a fully motorized blaster that unleashes 10 darts in a row from the rotating, 10-dart drum. This blaster captures the look from the Halo video game franchise allowing fans to experience the game in a new way.
There is Another…
The Leia Organa Force FX Elite Lightsaber features design and deco based on Leia Organa‘s iconic blue Lightsaber featured in The Rise of Skywalker. If there is one thing we can agree on, is that Leia was the best thing about Rise of the Skywalker. If you have already collected the FX Elite Lightsabers, Leia’s is a must-have to add to your collection.
Go Go NFT!!!!
NFTs have become all the range in 2021. An NFT is a non-fungible token that is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger. NFTs can be used to represent easily-reproducible items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files as unique items (analogous to a certificate of authenticity), and use blockchain technology to establish a verified and public proof of ownership. Think of it as a fancy way to make something worth a lot of money! Hasbro Pulse Con revealed their first-ever Power Ranger NFT. A Special Edition Megazord, part of the new Zord Ascension Project. The Megazord is only available to US customers and is a limited edition.
A Robot in a Special Disguise!
Evil has never looked so good! Galvatron gets a makeover via the 1986 film, The Transformers: The Movie. The Galvatron: Unicron Companion Pack features a Leader Class Galvatron figure in a translucent deco design. We recommend setting this up with tea lights to shine through the translucent purple design.
Yo Joe, Sweet Ride!
To be a real American hero, you need a vehicle that can get you from California to Tokyo, quickly and in style. The Skystriker takes to the skies as the very first G.I. JOE Haslab! The ultimate aerial GI. JOE vehicle is back and better than ever, exclusively for Haslab. Fans can help bring this creation to life by backing their crowdfunding campaign. Back the G.I.
