Remember the news we brought you about this infamous HASCON name being trademarked? It appears Hasbro remembered the 'bro' part of their name too, and added another name to the bank: Hasbrocon. Once more under the identification of "Organizing and conducting conventions, exhibitions, fan clubs and gatherings for entertainment purposes and in the fields of toys, animation, comic books, fantasy, gaming, popular culture, science fiction, television and film" - do you think this is a step closer to an all-encompassing event, or something different? Leave your opinion in the Energon Pub!

Also, we're looking for more thoughts on a potential Transformers dedicated Collector Club right over here, so make sure to check that out too!

The signatory being warned that willful false statements and the like are punishable by fine or imprisonment, or both, under 18 U.S.C. § 1001, and that such willful false statements and the like may jeopardize the validity of the application or any registration resulting therefrom, declares that all statements made of his/her own knowledge are true and all statements made on information and belief are believed to be true.

Probably enough difference between Hascon and The Hascon to allow it, but not enough to not justify also registering HasbroCon. :D

I'm sure we'll hear that joke a lot if their first event is a failure.

Still, I wonder if Hasbro's BotCon replacement will share its exclusives with HTS like they do with their SDCC and NYCC exclusives? It makes sense since BotCon has basically always unloaded their remaining exclusives on the club store.

Would you prefer BroCon?

And I hope if the convention will be under new management that it becomes simpler to register and attend. I went to BotCon in 2011, and it was a pain to go through everything, and worry about making sure we had all the documents and everything. I can't imagine it's gotten better in the last 5 years.
