Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via Transformers@theMoon, the UK based site, we have some interesting, rumour-mongering tidbits of news which we leave to you all to decide the implications of. It appears that Hasbro have registered the trademarks for CybertronCon, currently the name of their big Transformers Asian convention - could this mean a name change for BotCon? Something more radical? Nothing at all? Let the speculations run wild in the Energon Pub!

I wouldn't worry too much about this affecting BotCon. It's probably just Trademark protection business as usual, making it so Hasbro continues to hold on to the name.

I also don't think there's much to this. Good job fanning some flames, Va'al. :-P

I'm definitely excited if Hasbro hosts BotCon themeselves rather than have Fun Publications run it

Guess it's not the successor to BotCon, then.
