One of the highlights of BotCon has always been the dealer room and this year is not any different. With fans and collectors alike running around the floor trying to hunt down that one toy that they have been looking for, this is the place to be. This year, we saw quite a lot of cool stuff, with Takara Tomy's Masterpiece MP-11 Starscream selling out at various dealers within an hour or so into the preview, shops with Transformers First Edition figures getting swamped, and more. Take a walk with us in the gallery in the full article!

You're welcome! The Tformers staff worked very diligently to click that shutter everywhere they went.
i picked up a vintage TF duffel bag from 84. I didn't haggle, i was so excited with how cool it was. Ask Breaker, he saw me 10 minutes after i bought it. After i got home, i found a few G1 parts in the bag including a G1 Wheeljack wing. Score! I didn't blow all the cash in my wallet as i... read more
Good news for all you Texas residents!! We will be hosting our very own Robot / Sci Fi themed convention here in San Antonio, TX!!
We're hosting a bot themed convention set for 7 - 8 May 2016. From the folks that organized Alamo City Comic Convention (ACCC), we are holding a robot themed convention dubbed, Cyber City Con (CCC) here in the heart of Texas. .
The TFWiki has tweeted an image and link to a new trademark filing with the US Patent Office. The trademark? "HasCon" - which of course would be a useful name for a convention dedicated to all Hasbro products, not just Transformers. The trademark was filed just 6 days ago, right after BotCon, which also amounts to some interesting timing? What does it all mean, and does this mean that the CybertronCon name is no longer in consideration? No way to tell yet, but keep reading to see the details of the filing.
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. Those of who can chat about the week's news, the toys we purchased, our favorite panels, our favorite memories and all the awesome people we got to meet at the LAST Botcon! 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!
