So what happened with TFC's Dino-combiner? I had no interest in the not-Grimlock, but if instead they made it a 6 piece combiner it could have bulked up my con army as Dinoking.
Nice! I will pick up the PCC set. I knew someone would make an add on set for the PCC series...so much potential...now they will actually be worth picking up...
The PCC's Cyclops, and Blue Not Arcee will be bought!

While at Botcon we naturally spent as much time as we could spare down at the Hasbro booth to see all the fantastic new and upcoming toys to look forward to. Besides snapping hundreds of photos of all the displays over the course of the weekend, we did a set of display case overview videos as well. The displays were split in two groups, one featuring Titans Return and Platinum, the other Robots in Disguise and licensed merchandise, with Combiner Wars crossing between both. We've split the videos accordingly, and you can watch both embedded below right now!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We all have the convention crud, except for Brian.

Oh, we also talk about Masterpiece Shockwave, Masterpiece Ramjet, Computron, Liokaiser and tons more!
We were on hand for "BotCon Over The Years," the last panel of the last BotCon! Pete Sinclair led the presentation, reminiscing through his personal collection of BotCon photos and asking fans to share their own stories about the 22-year history of the social core of the Transformers fandom as it came to a close. Keep reading for details! UPDATED with some more details provided by longtime BotCon attendee Tim Finn!
The third annual BotCon panel featuring artist Hayato Sakamoto was held on Sunday, where he showed off some of his recent work along with notes on his artistic process and his approach to continuity in his work for Takara. Want to know why Legends Ultra Magnus came with a tiny Alpha Trion and why recent More Than Meets The Eye monster of the week Sunder looked like he did? Keep reading to see!
