Hasbro to Create the Ultimate Entertainment and Play Experience by Bringing Its Iconic Brands to Life with First-Ever ‘HASCON’

First-of-Its-Kind Convention Will Bring Fans and Families Together for Three Days of Immersive Entertainment Experiences, Talent and Character Appearances, Panels and More in September 2017


PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), a global play and entertainment company, announced it is creating the first-ever HASCON fan and family convention in September 2017. The massive event, which will be held in Providence at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin Donuts Center from September 8-10, 2017, will treat attendees to three unforgettable days featuring a celebration of Hasbro’s powerful characters and stories, including live interactive experiences, exclusive products, talent appearances, panels and much more.

From bringing the first action figure to life with G.I. JOE, to creating a world where robots are truly ‘more than meets the eye’ with TRANSFORMERS, Hasbro’s brands have always overflowed with rich stories and dynamic, multi-faceted characters, providing an incredible platform to capture the imaginations of fans of all ages. The premiere HASCON event will bring the magic of decades of storytelling under one roof for the ultimate, immersive Hasbro fan and family experience. Hasbro’s top properties, including TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, NERF, MAGIC THE GATHERING, PLAY-DOH, MONOPOLY, G.I. JOE and many others will be reimagined through dynamic stage performances and unique opportunities for fans to engage with their favorite characters.

You mean big enough for the two fandoms (TF and MLP) and the random few Average Joes who have an interest in the other brands. ;) :-P

Oh, sure, because Magic the Gathering has so few players. And Nerf sells so little.

Shouldn't be that hard as there is a lot to do in that area. Newport, RI is right there, and is a lovely town. You can easily make a nice trip of it.

Certainly seems that way to a lot of folks, which would be a total downer.

The negative to this, I already know my husband will probably not go. He isn't into this stuff at all but really enjoyed the last 2 Botcons because of the people and the narrow focus. I don't see him enjoying a huge convention like this but I could be wrong...not that it would deter me from going but you know.

At least I like Rhode Island and it gives me an excuse to go back home to CT to visit my folks late in the year.

I will say though .... TRANSFORMERS MONOPOLY CONTEST!! See if we can get the record for longest game played :lol:

But there are local shows though and fan events, like TFCon, that should still fill that need. And this would contrast those events by being the one event that is more about the brand itself rather than a place to buy things (aside from official merchandise). I see it like Star Wars Celebration or D20 Disney Expo where its all about the companies giving back to fans and celebrating the event without you needing to spend more money once you get in. It could be a breather and more of a vacation.

Just trying to make you feel better :)

And if its seeing one's good friends that made the convention so special, then thats the easiest thing to keep happening, just make this event your new hangout :) And hey, you could be introducing new fans to TFs and maybe get to learn more about other brands too. I only see this as a chance to make more friends rather than not seeing people.

Did you see that footage of some embarrassment of interpretive dance that was at some event a few months back - people were laughing at the time they said - yeah we are doing more of this - well I note they are doing it at Hascon too.

I hope they don't expect people to pay to see it is all on top of the ticket prices. as I think they will get some empty seats from some crowds.

I hesitate to mention this as it's sort of comes under the banner of things best not mentioned so as to not start a huge argument - but since the Hasbro convention is also a "Magic the Gathering" Convention and they are likely going to have some sort of tournament - isn't there a possibility of some culture clash between the tournament and the rest of the convention - not to mention there is a turf war in table top gaming to control it based on certain lets say "special interests" and leave it a that, Lets just say that any info given out with tickets and the like is going to make for some very interesting fine print reading.

MTG aside though do wonder if there might be some really big culture clashes going on here - for example some Transformers fans seem to be fond of Gi Joe and even tolerant or passingly fond of MLP - but what about other things Hasbro might want to shoehorn in.

If they said - your convention exclusive is a Nemesis Prime version of Mr. Potato head Optimus Prime - they might get some funny looks I would expect.

But on the other hand I would expect MLP Seeker-Ponies would go down a storm.

Are you kidding me, Hasbro? September? Why wedge it in between SDCC, Cybertroncon, and NYCC? What was great about BotCon was that it was a spring/early summer convention to fill the gap between Toy Fair in February and SDCC in July, we don't need another convention on the back half of the year!

I'm also very concerned about this convention being a little too family and kid friendly at the risk of alienating the die hard adult fans and collectors that other conventions (especially BotCon) cater to. I don't know if as a single adult I'm going to feel comfortable sharing space with a bunch of kids and judgmental parents. How do you do a Transformers panel without talking over the kids heads and talking down to the adult fans?

I don't know. I want to be excited because this is within driving distance for me (less than four hours), but I need to know that it's worth actually attending.

We could ask the ton of adults who attend Star Wars celebration every year.

Good job on pointing out the date though, I had not caught that. That blows for reveals.

I feel ya, let's hope they figure out how to find a happy middle ground. They are casting a pretty big net, so let's see what they drag up.

The dealer room was my favorite spot at Botcon (but hanging with friends and meeting other fans was better), it will be interesting to see what it becomes. If no official dealer room is available, I'd imagine there will be some down the hall on the 3rd floor pop up dealer rooms to be found.

There is so little info available at this time, or I just don't know how to click links :-? I don't know, it may be fun to take a TF break and see what's going on behind the other curtains.

Just basing it off the fact that no corporate run events have dealer areas. My insider source said it was based on Star Wars celebration and everything they told me so far has happenned.

You can also look at CybertronCon which had an uncanny amount of corporate backing. That show didn't have a dealer area either.

Yeah, I was confused by that, too. Dealer room (or rooms) allows Hasbro to sell space to vendors which equals easy money. Why would Hasbro not want that revenue?

Personally, I will attend mainly because 1) Providence is within driving distance of me and 2) because of the 10 BotCons I attended that particular city had the nicest total convention setup.

I just hope that with the announcement of the new club also comes an announcement of a new Transformers only official convention. I am not knocking TFCon but BotCon had perks that TFCon didn't, in terms of product reveals and officially licensed toys among other things. It sounds like HASCON will have this as well but I think our fandom is large enough and loyal enough to warrant its own convention. No offense to GI Joe, but how do they have their own convention still and we don't?
