So this happened.
I honestly don’t know what to think. These seems like an amalgamation of different Hasbro properties and I have no idea if they will mix well. Not only that, if this is really meant for families, why is Hasbro holding this in September when school starts? That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.
Am I eager to go? Yeah, a bit. But I’m also confused and a little angry. BotCon was cancelled for this? Was it really worth it to yank the plug on a Transformers convention in order to roll it into this?
Time will tell, I guess. We’ll have to wait and see.
I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
If only we knew then what we know now…:(
