Fans in Costume?

Craziness!  Today, we received the following e-mail from Hasbro's PR firm.  Are you one of the two costumed Transformers fans who attended the most recent San Diego ComicCon?  Or do you know who these individuals are?  Shoot us an e-mail and we'll put you directly in touch with Hasbro PR!


I’m reaching out to you – the Transformers fan and collectors community – on behalf of Hasbro’s Transformers brand team in hope that you may be able to assist with a somewhat unusual request.  

At this past year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, there were two costumed fans in attendance dressed in homemade Transformers movie character costumes – Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.  We would like to contact these individuals re: the upcoming ‘09 BotCon in Pasadena.  Without knowing their names, we’re obviously having trouble reaching these two fans.  And while I know there were many costumed Transformers fans in attendance, I’m told that these two individuals really stuck out, because each of these movie character costumes were very, very good – including metals components, etc.  

Would you happen to know either of these fans?  If so, please share their name and/or contact info.

Thanks much,
on behalf of Hasbro, Inc.

This is an odd recruitment. Odder than those in WWII emhasizing the buying of ________ bonds.

I may actually have a friend here at college who is freinds with the guy who went as Bumblebee. I'm looking into it right now.

Yeah, I've got a connection to the Bumblebee.

If the costumes are that good, I'd love to see pictures. Anyone got any?
