Hasbro Pulse Con’s schedule revealed ahead of this weekend’s festivities

If video game publishers can host their own digital events to showcase their upcoming titles on streaming platforms, why can?t this be applied to other industries. While I doubt I?ll tune in to 3M?s Command Strip Showcase 2021, my eyes will however be glued to this weekend?s Hasbro Pulse Con (official site here). The iconic toy brand whose portfolio boasts the who?s who of intellectual properties, from Marvel, NERF, GI Joe, Transformers, Star Wars and those teenagers with attitude, the Power Rangers. Occurring on Friday October 23rd to Saturday October 24th (I guess they didn?t spill over to Sunday, because after 2 days of amazing announcements…you?ll need a day of rest to recover), the various Hasbro brand teams will provide details on what?s to come. But it won?t just be presentations on toys as the panels reveal details about card games, movies and even an amusement park ride. Hosted by Jackie Jennings and Khleo Thomas, the event will include a star packed line up such as the cast of Power Rangers Dino Fury, Matthew Lillard, comic writer Donny Cates and musical performances by Weezer and Vince DiCola, the man who not only scored the 1986 Transformers movie, but Rocky IV as well.

The show will air exclusively on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube channel and the first panel will begin at 11:00am EST. As a way to give back, Hasbro has pledged that for every viewer which tunes in over the course of the weekend they will donate a toy/game to Toys for Tots up to 50,000 items. So find out what toys and games you?ll want to get your hands on when the festivities start this Friday.
