Hasbro wrote:Hello!

The annual Transformers BotCon Convention is almost here! In one month, BotCon is storming the city of Pasadena, and is going to be filled with tons of "More Than Meets The Eye" action! Highlighted during the weekend is the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where we honor those people and robots who have, figuratively and literally, transformed the brand into what it is today.

For further details, please see the media alert below, and if you could include this in your upcoming calendar listings that would be terrific!

If you have any questions about BotCon or Hasbro, please feel free to reach out to me any time.

ROLL OUT!

Best,
Hasbro

I love it how the ad leaves you with the impression you could get in-and-outta Botcon for $20.... not if you want those figures. :grin:

Gen admission never sees those figs anyways. Unless you're standing in line two hours before the doors open, you're not seeing any of those figs two days after release.


Unless they suck the balls. You then might beat collectors and be wrestling with only scalpers. Lets be honest though, everyone there is going to try to recoup cost

Finally, I get to go to our Holy Mecha. :grin: The Pasadena area is my old stomping grounds and only 35-40min away. $20 dollar entry is the way to go these days. Those Stunticons look cool but they don't combine, so I can live without them. I'm saving my money for the treasure hunt I'll be undergoing once I get there. Yay me! :lol:

I'm glad I'm going. I am actually looking forward to the Hall of Fame the most, and of course the road trip to get there. I love road trips.
