I'm hearing on some other boards that Hasbro may not come to SDCC anymore, though I believe that is just speculation. 

That notion does make some sense however, now that Hasbro is trying to do their own in-house convention - "HASCON."  It would make some sense for Hasbro to just sell their exclusives at their own convention.

Here is what we actually know:
  - Hasbro has taken back the license to do Transformers conventions from Fun Publications, the company that has put on the Transformers exclusive Botcon convention for the last 10+ years. 
  - Hasbro has announced their own HASCON to take place in Rhode Island on Sept. 8-10. 
  - Hasbro did renew the license to do GI Joe conventions with Fun Publications last year, for a two year period that will expire in 2018. 

That's about all we know for sure at this time.  Personally I hope that Hasbro continues coming to SDCC.  The Hasbro line has been a frequent source of nightmares for me, but I do like having them at the convention.  So I guess we will see what happens. 

If Hasbro does in fact keep their exclusives to sell at HASCON, then I expect there will be many more people buying the exclusives online since I expect the attendance at the first HASCON will not approach the 150,000+ that are at SDCC.

It is interesting to note that after tweeting their "next up" would be HasCon in September (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login), they did tweet about appearing at ECCC

I'm usually a fan of the Transformers they carry. But I passed on last years. It looked to cheap to me. I hope this years is a lot better.

Hasbro is a must for me.  I play Magic: the Gathering and every year I snag their Planeswalker promos.  Last year, it went down to the wire for them to release their news about the new PW set.  I am hoping for lands this year but more than likely it will be PWs.

I really like that Thrawn set.  Such an awesome somewhat deep cut Star Wars collectible.  Every year I tell myself I'm not going to go through the Hasbro process again yet they always pull me right back in  ;)

That Skywalker set is going to make the Hasbro lineup frustration and disappointment greater lol. Thinking back to two years ago and the black series storm trooper. Thankfully this year I am not buying anything so I won't have to go through it. Good luck to the rest of you!
