Botcon 1996 will be held in Rosemont, Illinois, not far from Chicago! The 1996 International Transformers convention, BOTCON, will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Transformers: The Movie. Can you believe it? 10 years ago this August, Transformers: The Movie was released throughout the world on the big screen!


Men In Black, the group of people who have orchestrated the Trasnformers convention, live in Ypsilanti, Michigan. From their house they buy, sell and trade Transformers with people from all over the country and in Michigan.


Botcon '96 will be held in the Rosemont Clarion Resort from July 12th - 14th. Hotel accommodattions can be made by contacting the Clarion Resort at (847)297-8464. Hotel rooms are $67.00 per night, per room, and they are going fast! Just let them know that you are staying for the Men In Black convention block.


Men In Black have made a deal with Hasbro/Kenner to make an exclusive toy for BOTCON '96. This year's Botcon Transformer will be a repainted black/gold/gray Beast Wars Optimus Primal bat. It looks much cooler than the original Optimus Primal.


Dennis Barger, one of Men In Black's head honchos, can be contacted at (313)483-TOYS for any additional information regarding BOTCON '96. If you have access to the World Wide Web, you can contact Men In Black's web site at http://www.htonline.com/Men_in_Black.
