Who’s ready for the most exciting reveal slate in the world of toys and action figures? That’s right, Hasbro Pulse Con 2021 is coming directly to you screens this year on October 22nd and 23rd, and I for one couldn’t be more stoked!
Check out the official announcement video.
There are so many exciting reveals already rumoured. All of Hasbro’s main lines are getting announcements, and internet speculation is already running rampant. But we’re not about speculation here on the Big Comic Page, we’re all about the confirmed news, and before we let our excitement get the better of us, let’s take a look at the stuff you’ll realistically never get your hands on… the exclusives!
Transformers: Generations War for Cybertron Deluxe Covert Agent Ravage and Micromaster Decepticons Forever Ravage
(Ages 8 and Up / Approx. Retail Price: $44.99 / Available: November 1, 2021)

VERDICT: Honestly? This just looks silly. The head is ridiculous, which I guess makes it a true exclusive, i.e something only dedicated fans would want. Oh and hey, a G1 ravage. That’s cool, I guess.
Decepticons forever! In celebration of 25 years of the iconic Beast Wars: Transformers animated series, fans can add this 2-pack to their collection, featuring the classic Predacon/Decepticon jaguar, Ravage! Ravage may have been reformatted into a Predacon, but after watching a secret message from his long-dead Decepticon leader, he realizes where his allegiances lie. This pack is inspired by the scene where Ravage joins the Predacons, converts into his former mini cassette mode and leaps into the Transwarp Cruiser’s tape recorder.
This pack includes a 5.5-inch Deluxe COVERT AGENT RAVAGE figure that converts from robot to jaguar mode in 20 steps and a 1.5-inch Micromaster DECEPTICONS FOREVER RAVAGE figure that converts from jaguar to mini cassette mode in 4 steps. Pose out with 2 pistol weapon accessories and 2 blast effects and decorate DECEPTICONS FOREVER RAVAGE in cassette mode with the included G1-inspired stickers. Remake the classic Beast Wars: Transformers scene with package art inspired by the command deck of the Transwarp Cruiser that Ravage captains. Available exclusively on Hasbro Pulse in the US, Canada & UK in Fall 2021.”
Power Rangers Lightning Collection Mighty Morphin Pudgy Pig
VERDICT: No idea who this is. Really silly, but the sculpting is lovely, as are the accessories, especially the pie. I am assured by the older generation that this is a brilliant collectible version of this character. The nineties lunch box is the best part, truly hilarious.
This 6-inch Lightning Collection Pudgy Pig figure features premium paint and decorative details inspired by the show, over 20 points of articulation for high poseability, food fight accessories, oversized fork and knife weapon accessories and blast effect piece for more ways to play or display. Go Go Power Rangers!
IT’S MORPHIN TIME! From Dino Fury back to the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the Power Rangers have brought teamwork, action, and adventure to generations of fans. The legacy continues with figures, vehicles, collectibles, and roleplay toys from Hasbro, celebrating ranger teams from Mighty Morphin to the Dino Fury. Imagine all the action of Power Rangers with toys from Hasbro! (Power Rangers toys each sold separately. Subject to availability.)
Includes: figure and 7 accessories.
G.I. Joe Classified Series Master of Disguise Zartan

VERDICT: My favourite of the Pulse Con exclusives by far. I really love this box of heads, and the guns are awesome. I hope the heads are cross compatible with others in the G.I. Joe range. I’d love to make some wacky dioramas with these heads. I am not a G.I. Joe fan, I never have been, but I can see a lot of love went into this.
G.I. Joe is a highly skilled, on-demand, special operations force of men and women from around the globe. These extraordinarily talented heroes are selected for their elite abilities and tasked with defending the world from Cobra, a ruthless criminal organization bent on total domination. With unwavering courage and steely determination, the brave members of G.I. Joe are prepared to seek out Cobra in any environment on the planet. From hostile jungles to ice-clad arctic peaks…wherever there’s trouble, G.I. Joe is there.
This Zartan figure comes ready for action, with multiple points of articulation for high poseability, and 13 character-inspired accessories. And with custom artwork by Tom Whalen and Derek Ring, the G.I. Joe Classified Series Master of Disguise Zartan package will make a mark on shelves.
G.I. Joe and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.
Includes: G.I. Joe Classified Series Zartan action figure and 13 accessories.
So, what do you think of these? What are you most looking forward to? Me personally it’s the Transformers but I think Pulse Con has a really exciting slate this year.
