At Hasbro's HQ.

Hopefully the turnout will justify FP being arsed to assign a team to further summer TF conventions.

I might actually go next year. It's farther away than this year, but it will actually be during the convention season this time. I'd like to think that Fun Publications came to and realized was a stupid decision it was to have a con during the school year, but my money's on this decision being all Hasbro.

I have a feeling it was done to milk the movie hype. It's close enough that I'd consider going, but I'm not sure if I'm up to going to conventions anymore.

I've never been that far east. and it's at a time of year that I'd be cool with. I'd go, assuming someone's going that I can share a hotel room with.

Too far to walk and I'd just get my feet wet anyway.

Damn. :(

(Never mind, there will be an AutoCon and I can get to that!)

The main reason for BotCon being in June this year is because FP and Hasbro want to capitalize on the pre-movie hype. And to do so it had to be in June. And it was a JOINT decision between Hasbro and FP. Hasbro didn't have to lean on Brian as you may think

Most likely after this year it'll resume being in late September like before
