I was at the Botcon party tonight at the Westin Hotel. I'm sure there will be an official thread about this with pictures, but for those hanging onto every bit of Botcon news - here ya go:

The goodie bag included a movie poster, Optimus Prime T-Shirt (Party like it's 1984) with Prime holding a Blaster-like radio to his ear), a Bee-otch car air freshener (like in the new movie), some movie figure promo cards, and a Stan Bush flyer/postcard. Very cool goodie bag!

The ballroom was very upscale. There was a cash bar and stations all around with pizza, chicken wings, salad, celery sticks and carrots. There were also free drink stations with sodas and iced tea.

A local 80s cover band performed about 6 or 7 songs, including 867-5309, I think I'm turning Japanese, Rock and Roll all night..., and several others I will probably remember after I hit submit.

There was a break in the music for the awards. Plenty of art awards for various categories. I could not hear much from the microphone and had a 5 year old with me that wanted to keep partying, so I did not hear many names. I'm sure they will be revealed here later.

TFW won two awards, one for news and the other - ? I did not hear the category. Seibertron won another award for best resource site (you guys rock!).

Then the 80's cover band took the stage again, but this time with Stan Bush! He sang Till All Are One (new song), two songs from other albums that were quite good for his retro Bon Jovi-like style, then he sang Dare and The Touch. The Touch is my 5 year old's favorite song and this was his first concert. He loved it and chatted about his two favorite songs (the other is Dare) all the way back to the hotel. Stan Bush continued to play with the band and sang Summer of 69 as I was leaving. I'm sure he kept going and the crowd was all into it. Unfortunatley it was about 10:30 and I had to get my kid to bed.

Overall, a good time was had by all except for one sad guy who lost his goodie bag (stolen). I felt sorry for him, so I gave him mine. That general kind of caring attutude was prevalent at Botcon. Everyone I talked to (and I am quite chatty at times) was very friendly, kind-spirited, and having a good time. This was a very non-judgmental crowd. Everyone was accepted and all walks of life were represented here. The dealers were all nice guys too. Walking around with my son, he was given a free MISB RobotMasters Primal, a free basic knock-off transforming car robot, an Armada Unicron (for $20), and a G1 Seaspray. My two year old got a free Optimash Prime and a Cybertron Legends Prime. All this because they were cute little guys walking aroound with their Daddy and all the people here are just so nice. This has been an outstanding experience, and even my wife, who is not much of a TF fan, thoroughly enjoyed herself.

Like every year Botcon is a chance for Hasbro to show off what they currently have, and what is to come. This year had lots of cool things on display, and you bet it it was all Movie stuff. Some of the stuff to note was the Wal-Mart Exclsuive Starscream and more Target Exclusive Basic Repaints for the movie toy line. Also on display was Leader Class Brawl, Starscream classic repaint, Ratchet repaint, Barricade repaint (Recon Barricade) and several new deluxe class figures.

Ryan will be putting up a full gallery for the dealer room and the hasbro display, but I wanted to give you guys a nice preview. He will have clearer shots but till then enjoy!

This year at Botcon a fierce battle ensured between the different forum boards, to see which board reigned supreme in knowledge. Team Seibertron was made up of Seibertron, Getterdragun, Fender Bender, Air Commander Starscream and Tiger Tracks 24. We were pitted against TFW2005 and the battle was fierce. In the beginning we had a major lead, but they made a come back at the end. Congratulations to TFW2005 for making it out of the negative number score this year and progressing to the next round!

We all had a good time with the other boards and there was a lot of friendly jest between the boards. Lots of trash talk and even a bull horn in the crowd to keep us all laughing. Rematch next year!

One of the features of Botcon this year was the Hasbro Tour. 250 lucky attendee’s were loaded up on 2 separate visits to the Hasbro factory. A lot was shown and you can expect a full gallery from Ryan in the upcoming week. One of the things that was talked about however was the future of the 6" Titanium toy line. From what was said there will not be anymore after WWI Prowl and WWI Grimlock. However that could just be no more new molds as several repaints were featured at Botcon. Nothing was said of the 3" Titanium future.

Just a teaser some of the axed Titanium's were WWI Bumblebee (and Cliffjumper head), G1 Arcee, Cosmos and WWI Shockwave. But you'll have to wait for the galleries to see what could have been!
