Going to try and dress up as AoSTH Robotnik. Only two things I see being had for the costume. The Moustache and the classic yellow target belt thing. May need some help. :drunk

Hmmm bit of cool news for me. I'm going to my first Comic Con!! No not the Comicon a comic con in cape girardeau. First Con thats been close enough for me to go to!! Blast it will be.

Chromedome aside, it's not like they're doing anything in MTMTE.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:46 PM)

Also the Season 2 Trailer makes me hopeful for Clampdown getting more toys since he seems to be one of the blessed escapees

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

I had been hoping we'd get a good Windblade toy, and RID delivered this time.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

Yeah, RID Windblade is basically a gigantic slap in the face to the people who think RID could NEVER be anywhere near as good as "collector's" lines like Generations.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:13 PM)

Bisk is fun, but I'm more excited about Strongarm's fishgun, Scorponok with a different transformation for once and a Windblade that can stand up

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:43 PM)

One-steps are pretty much the most fun thing ever. It's kind of addicting to just shift from one mode to another over and over again.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:41 PM)

That makes him even better than a Warrior.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 06:39 PM)

Bisk is a 1-Step

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 04:38 PM)

I hope Bisk is either a Legends or he's less messed up than he looks.

@  Plokatron : (13 February 2016 - 01:53 PM)

@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

Happy Birthday, young'un. 8^)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

It's my BIRTHDAY! I'm 35 years young!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

Heh, I'd be of two minds if it were Pasadena again. The part of me that wants a vacation versus the part that would save hundreds on plane tickets and a hotel.

I'd love it to be in Florida around August. Dream vacation for me. Star Wars Celebration ... AND Botcon. I could die a happy jawa. But that dream aside. Boston would be a nifty local. (And for the record that's about a 8 hour bus ride for me, so no it ain't next door)

The Pacific Northwest has never gotten any love, so how about it? Great booze and food, lots of things to do, friendly cities? Seattle would probably get more walk-ins then Portland, though Portland is a vey geek-friendly city. I could be wrong though, anyone know the PAX Prime attendance figures?

PAX has grown to about about 70,000+ as of this year. I can testify to it.

Going by past trends, Botcon'll be on the east coast this year.

The convention being in Pasadena also makes it much cheaper and easier to bring in the voice actors, which is apparently a draw.

Eh, voice actors aren't a draw for me. I mean they're cool but they in no way determine my wanting to go one way or another. The draw is Botcon itself, and would remain without s single VA.

Location however completely does, and west coast is terrible for that. It's simply too far.


-ZacWilliam, that's why it's best to move it around, so folks all over get a decent shot at going.

I wonder how many fans would end up not going, simply because they could neither spell nor pronounce Pachyceph and were therefore incapable of making travel arrangements.

Because there always is.

From what I understand, it's also supposed to be a very reasonable place to have a conference, cost-wise. The business model of the whole town is basically "get people here so they can lose their money to us by gambling," so everything else is generally very affordable.

I think the problem with Botcon there though would be that it's not exactly the most family-friendly place in the world. Also, the chances of getting a lot of walk-ins are going to be pretty low when there's not very many kids around, and for any adults there's a lot of other entertainment right nearby.

It'd be a great choice for fans, but probably less so for FunPub or Hasbro, IMO.

Going just by where traffic to this site comes from as a sampling.. most of our users seem to be in the northeast and east and southeast... with a chunk from Texas and a big chunk from California.

Much like it was 5-10 years ago.

Seems like Lexington, Cincinnati and Louisville are the most 'central' locations based on the sampling of Transformers fans from this site. I couldn't say what it might be overall but I don't see any reason why it would be all that different.

Centrality notwithstanding, I think we discovered that the Cincinnati airport was among the most expensive in the nation when we were discussing it as a BotCon option a few years ago.

That's why I say Louisville.. not just because I live here but because it's, has its own large airport, is cheap.. has more stuff to do than Lexington and is central.

The downtown convention center could easily accommodate Botcon and there's lots of hotels. As well as 4th Street Live which is a lot of bars and eateries within walking distance.
