Didn't realize NYCC was so close. Should be interesting to see more of their post-DOTM plans.

And don't forget, Dino/Mirage. Now I see what Hasbro did, they've never been at this convention before, so they would have to realeas 90-95% of the releases at Toyfair, Botcon and SDCC. So they split SDCC with the NYCC. So now I know Dino, Leader Megs and Shockwave are coming....I think my heart just skipped a beat ;P

This might have just sealed the deal for me to go. I was firmly against going this year because money is a little tighter and they really pissed me off last year with the way they ran the Stan Lee signings amongst other things. But with Hasbro finally showing up at NYCC (what took so long?) and Mark Hamill appearing I think I'm going.

i wouldn't get your hopes up for dino and leader megatron and/or shockwave.

i personally wish they would show us photos of those figures prior to the con.. or at least confirm what the rest of the movie line will be.

hopefully they have some of the figures from their previous panel on display, like prime wheeljack, voyager starscream, etc.

oh, and i think you have one too many "k"s in your post.

Ah..thanks for pointing that out :P

Still, I might as well just hope for the best and try to be optimistic. If we don't get them, oh well.

NYCC is a great con. I'm there every year doing autographs and such as well myself (Michael Watkins). So if you guys go to the con, come find me in artist alley just to say hi. I'd love to meet some fellow seibertronians in person.

I kind of wish I was going now. I had a chance to go to NYCC this year, but it's so close to my convention in November, I turned it down. Argh.

has hasbro ever had this big of a dominate presence at the NYCC with 4 live panels?

I don't recall hasbro ever showing anything TF toys new at NYCC in previous years.

it'll be interesting to see what happens at NYCC with hasbro & their TF stuff.

I'm about a hour & a halfaway from NYCC. If it was botcon this close i'd go. but I don't think it's worth my time,gas,tolls,parking fees nor admission fees to bother going. I think i'll play it smart,stay home & stay tuned to my computer. they'll be plenty of pics & reviews on all the major TF fan sites.

If I'm not mistaken, this is Hasbros first year at NYCC? I could be mistaken, but I thought I read that somewhere.

Are they showing new toy pictures or just talking about the Transformers brand?
