    It just occured to me that this will be the first Botcon your average Hasbro employee will be able to attend. It stands to reason we'll have a lot of Hasbro staff there, to see how longstanding and popular their Transformers are.

    I expect the Hasbro panel to be the highest-attended ever.

    Thoughts?

    I'd say it's possible that we could end up mingling with Hasbro employees and not know it. After all, like you said BotCon's in their backyard :)  Pretty wicked thought actually. Even more incentive for us as a fanbase to kind of behave ourselves I think ;)

    I think they said at some point last year that a lot of Hasbro employees would finally get to check out the Con that Aaron and co. have been talking so much about the past few years and see what all the hype is about. So I wouldn't doubt one bit that there will be quite a few Hasbro employees there throughout the weekend. Probably gonna be a little crowded behind the Hasbro booth area, heheh.

    Who knows? Your average Hasbro office employee may be so inundated with TFs on a daily basis that they won't bother. *shrugs*

    Some employees may not be able to make it due to other circumstances too... but yeah I think we'll see a lot of employees.

    See, what we as fans need to do is find a colorist, or an intern or summach, and take THEM out to the bar. Aaron Archer's used to dealing with guys like Kickback trying to ply him with alcohol, we need someone that's not been trained against the fanboy.

    I wonder if we'll see WWII-era "Loose Lips Sink Ships" posters on the tour. But aksmth's on to something. Shots of Jag free with Hasbro employee badge! Just look for the guy in pirate garb!

    Kyde's no longer an intern, but you can always bag him. He's got that funny little hat.

    Well, guess I won't be wearing my hat this year...

    I do encourage the idea of trying to get me drunk though.
