Seibertron.com has received information from an Anonymous Source that would indicate that to be the case. According to our source, Stan Bush has been booked for a convention in the southeast part of the country this summer. Botcon has been speculated to take place in the summer this coming year to coincide with the release of the Transformers sequel, Revenge of the Fallen.

Also, according to our source, more details will be revealed next week regarding the dates and exact location of this event. Continue to check back to Seibertron.com as more news regarding this develops!

I doubt it would be here in Florida

It would of been cool to have it at Disney World since they are coming out with the Mickey transformer and Disney World is a two hour drive for me

I hope it's in Florida too! Like in Orlando or Kissemmee. Then my whole family would go. Even if they don't want to go to the convention, they can just go to the tourist stuff down there. And if they want and if they're previewing it, they can probably watch ROTF too.

Hmm....Southeast huh? It could work....with some creative accounting and resourcefulness, I could work that out....



......I will, however, wait for further details, since this is not really set-in-stone yet.

COme on bro...you should have seen this coming. The East is where EVERYTHING important is (allegedly)...just watch ESPN. Apparently there are no other NFL teams besides the Patriots (oh, and the Cowboys), MLB folded all teams except the Yankees and Red Sox, and the Celtics have already won the 2009 NBA title.

P.S. Can someone PLEASE shoot Tony Kornhiser? He needs to just go away somewhere...

Does Memphis actually count as Southeast? I'd lean towards Raleigh, NC or Atlanta, GA. Atlanta would be nice...been wanting to see the new aquarium down there...supposed to be even bigger than Shedd in Chicago.

The southeast huh...

Well I'm in the northeast, so a Botcon trip may be possible for me again. All I need to know is dates it's being held and the state it's gonna be located in. Then I can start my planning.

*sigh* I should have guessed, always the east. Maybe someday we west coast fans will get a break. I'd like to go to at least one botcon but 2,000+ miles of travel really isn't an option. :-(

That and a Northwest con would rock, people would get a chance to see the place many of the stories take place. :wink:

Oh Lord, a summer convention in the southeast. Why not have it in a place where the weather is actually *tolerable* at that time of year for those of us not insane enough to live there?

I also hope it's in Florida. That really increases the chances I'll be able to attend. Everything fun like that is usually in the northeast or far west. Dragoncon is about the only thing we get over here, and I haven't even been able to go to that.

And the weather is just fine here.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that...


...They should have it in Canada. We have very mild summers. It's bad enough being a room fill with sweaty Transformer fans, don't put them out in the hot Florida summer sun too. There's not enough deoderant in the world.

Florida summers are the best time of year. Some of you up north have no idea how awesome 100 degree weather is.

Also, I'm speculating either Orlando or Atlanta.

Hey folks, just wait till they give us a place and I'll get to organizing places to stay, events, and accomodations. (Time to call in some favors too...) Take heart those that are in a galaxy far, far away. We can probably help you out.

Except that in College Football they ignore the fact that the Gators are the best team in the country and continue to focus on the stupid Big 12 and the pyramid of lies that their records are built upon.

Heck, I'm in the Athens area too. We've probably passed by one another in the toy eisle at Walmart, Target, or TRU. I'm not holding my breath that it'll be at the Classic Center.

Pete on the club boards pretty much shot this down:

Oh, and Seibertron needs a new tipster. Seriously.


Of course, it could just be "misinformation", but with as delayed as this has been, that'd just serve to piss people off more, so hopefully they wouldn't do that.
