In these quarantine years of COVID-19, with San Diego Comic-Con represented by online panels only, Hasbro‘s Pulse Con has become their equivalent. The company might normally set up a massive booth display and host several panels in San Diego in July. But without that hall space, they now just do it — and the panels — at their own HQ, and on their own time. So July came and went, but toy fans should mark their calendars for October 22-23. That’s when Pulse Con 2021 will go live online. Check out the sizzle reel below to see what brands they’ll represent:
Of course exclusives will be sold. Many of them, we’ve previously revealed here, including a Star Wars Dave Filoni action figure, and Marvel Legends Elvis MODOK. But it’s interesting to note G.I. Joe’s Baroness in the logo. Hasbro made the fan-favorite character notoriously difficult to get, by packaging her with a motorcycle to up the price, then making her a Target exclusive that sold out immediately. Perhaps new plans are afoot. Or perhaps Hasbro’s team just knows that pretty ladies sell.
Of course, if you don’t have the time to watch the Internet for two straight days, check in right here with Superherohype. We’ll bring you all the details relevant to superhero, sci-fi, and fantasy figures.
