Joe Con 2015: Hasbro three packs revealed!

The Hasbro panel was yesterday at Joe Con 2015 and Derryl DePriest and Mark Weber revealed a whole new slate of products that will be exclusive to both Toys R Us and BigBadToyStore.com.  The line is essentially a continuation of the 50th anniversary series and will be available on August 1, 2015.  As with previous offerings, it’s a mix of existing parts and pieces that have only been glimpsed in concept cases of previous shows.

Here’s how the figures looked “in person” over at the concept case.  The gray on Hit & Run is supposed to be darker in the final version.  Alpine and the Rock Viper are IDENTICAL to their previous releases which were incredibly hard-to-find at retail and were released in an attempt to make completing individual collections easier.
