Botcon '08, parts 1,2,3

Posted by:
Perceptor at 2008-04-27 11:37 pm   (site update)

As always, we had a blast at BOTCON!  Check out our day 1 report now permanently linked in our Events and Interview Section and link directly to the photo gallery.  Stay tuned, more to come!

I'll try to keep most Day 2 news and revelations for our next update, but there is one piece of news I can't keep in!  At the Hasbro designers panel, we saw an Transformers Animated drawing of PERCEPTOR!  The character looks like a TFA rendition of the G1 character!  YEEEEEEEEES!!!!!  I asked the question if the show was going to get back into the realm of "mass shifting" meaning, "is this a giant robot that will shrink down into a small Microscope?"  Aaron Archer answered, "we cannot tell you what he transforms into, but I will tell you, there is no mass shifting!"

This report continued with part 2 news item/commentary here with the actual report item here.

Then again with part 3 news item/commentary here and the report part 3 here.

Holy crap... I didn't realize my reports had been added to the archive!
Anyway, did you guys get any pics of Cheetor and Ravage? I didn't see any, but those are the ones I'm most interested it. I can't wait to hear your big secret reveal guys. And I'm glad TFA season 1 is coming to DVD, I just wonder if it's going to have the first three episodes on it as well or if you'll have to buy that movie release I posted about a while back...

hey guys, did they anounce were botcon was being held at next year? someone told at botcon that they'd probably announce where it was being held at the end of the show.

A large alt mode with a large, lensed tube... Perhaps he's an observatory-scale telescope?

I still think that Omega Supreme is going to be the autobots ship.

I am so getting Blaster when and/or if it comes out!

And also, why is Starscream immortal? No matter what, he's always immortal, G1, The Unicron trilogy, he's one of the few Decepticons that lived in the Live-Action Movie, and now he's immortal in Animated. Has anyone ever noticed that an immortal traitor trying to kill his old leader is just really funny?

Starscream is just a great villain to keep everyone on their toes. You know he could go after anyone. He's the Daffy Duck of Transformers. Shoot him all you want, but he'll show up again to screw with you. Heck, Galvatron obliterated him and later on "pop", he's back.

Hey everyone, let's start now trying to get Botcon in Denison Tx in 2010! They are building a brand new huge convention center right off the main Highway (US 75)here in town. Denison is just an hour north of Dallas (Frisco) where Botcon 2005 was held. Come on everyone, We need your help! Bring Botcon to Denison!!!!!

I think it should be here in Seattle next year only bad things happens to us up here I mean we just lost the Seattle Super sonics our NBA team we need something good to happen and Botcon is it

Bring it to Florida! It's NEVER been down here, and the fandom is lacking here. So we NEED something like BotCon to get the fandom started up here again. The movie helped a bit, but know its dying off again.

Bring BotCon to Florida!

>>let's start now trying to get Botcon in Denison Tx in 2010!
Ugh, but it's SO hot in Texas! Though it is a semi-central location w/in the U.S. :)

>>Bring it to Florida! It's NEVER been down here, and the fandom is lacking here.
It's too hot in Florida too. A lack of Fandom is among several reasons Botcon probably won't ever be there. That plus its not-exactly-central-location w/in the U.S. and probably the MOST important reason is that convention centers in Florida are not cheap. (That's why you see it being held in places like Cincinatti, OH and Lexington, KY, etc.

Maybe since they're filming Transformers 2 in Pennsylvania they'll hold the convention there as well?

1# WONDERFUL! I was hoping that you'd get a chance to go to Botcon! LOVE the pics and can't wait for Report 2! Oilslick looks like an interesting character...I hope that they decide to squeeze him into the series. And then there is the photo of us. Are you trying to flatter us Perceptor? (heh heh)

2# Great pics! I like the kid dressed as Dinobot. VERY creative!!!! Just like 1# I can't wait for Report 2 and hope you post it soon! Make sure to find something cool to bring back for a souviner!

3# Fantastic! We wanted to go to Botcon too,but Megatron says we have to keep hidden. Maybe next year... There are so many things to see,I just don't know what is my favorite thing! Ha ha ha!!!

2# Yeah and Mr. "Perfect" (Lugnut) stops us every time we try to sneak away!

1# Watch your mouth 1#!
