Botcont 2008, part 3

Posted by:

Okay, so it's time we concluded our report from Botcon 2008.  Check out our Events and Interview Section where you'll find the latest addition, part 3

Included for your viewing pleasure is a new photo gallery of the last day of the Hasbro exhibit, my notes from the Hasbro/CN "What to expect from TF: Animated seasons 2 and 3" panel, and a few more videos.  There is one from the dealer floor, a vid featuring Tara Strong talking about her son's reaction telling his friends that his mom is Ben10, and one where all 3 voice actors act out a scene where their characters order some coffee at the drive thru.  Sounds like Mr. Kaye was quite seriously in need of that coffee as he confused/combined his Beast Wars Megatron and TFA Grimlock a little!  :)

Oh, and one final note, within my report, I show off pictures of the toy and buyer of the most expensive Transformers transaction I have ever personally witnessed.   It's an AFA graded (score of 90) MISB 1985 G1 Thrust figure.  How much would you guess it sold for?  (Read the report to find out!)

That Thrust is almost as expensive as the jet he's based on!

At first they sound real quite on the coffee vid, then they speak into the mics better.

I think they needed to speak into the mics a little better during adlibs.

Ditto, Sabr. wish I could have made it to the voice actors panel! I didn't get to go because I spent all of my money in about an hour, I only had $400 this year.

Anybody know who that guy is that bought Thrust? I saw him two years ago in KY asking about the Hartman's collection they were selling. The guy was dressed to the nines and in a bit of a hurry.

Not exactly sure, but yeah he's hard to miss. He's usually the only guy walking around the convention floor with a suit and tie on! Nice guy. Though I do try not to hold a grudge against him since he out bid me on a MISB G1 Trailbreaker the Hartman Bros were selling!

It was pretty funny actually, I would keep upping his bid in $5 increments. Then, he would turn around and up my bid by ~$25-50! HA! I think I let him have it around $400. Oh well.
