    Thanks to the new Timelines special in comic stores now, we have gotten our first clue as to the theme of Botcon 2010. The ad reads "Next year, at Botcon 2010, the Transformers will revisit a generation many thought was lost and a battle for the future will begin."

    Could this indicate that the theme for 2010 will be Generation 2?

    I fail to see how you get G2 from that but an interesting line that gives us really no solid information but lots to speculate on. Well done on that FP.

    Beast wars/ machines? RID/ Car robots? I don't know but one of those two or G2 would be AWESOME. Also, I wonder where it will be this year?

    Sounds interesting. Could mean practically anything, but the first thing that comes to my mind is Animated, tbh.

    That's not news, it's a ghost of a whisper of a hint.

    A Botcon location or a date or a toy would be news.

    The only Transformers franchise to ever have the word "generation" in the title was G2. Doing so retconed the first generation into being G1. So its logical speculation, but just speculation.

    You are part of the news staff, so obviously what you define as "news" goes for this community. But personally, I find this information to be news. At the least, it gives the community something to get excited about and to theorize on.

    Oh yeah I guess I see that, I get a feeling though its going to be like last years "wreck and rule" comment and turn out the box set had nothing to do with that. Still its all good on FP part cos its getting us talkling about botcon and that great publicty for it.

    As I said in my original post, the Botcon folks have given us our first "clue." The clue itself is the news, not the speculation that myself and others may draw from it. But, you're in charge of TFW2005 news making, so if you say it isn't news then that is your prerogative.

    I'm surprised at your reaction. Since clues like this are designed to give Botcon publicity in the forums and among fans, wouldn't treating this as news actually be supporting Botcon's business? I thought supporting Hasbro and its subsidiaries was one of the functions of these boards...

    The only obvious theme for a Botcon happening in 2010 is G1 that happened right after the movie. Season 3 had 2010 IN THE TITLE over the pond in Japan. How can you ignore that and theme it after G2 or Beast Wars? Blehk!

    It's the RiD 10th anniversary. Might be something celebrating that. It's also less well known than G1 Season 3.

    That would be great. I'd repurpose him as Deep Cover.
