    It looks like they paid attention to the "too much to do" complaints from last year. Saturday is still pretty non-stop from 10:00-17:00, but otherwise it seems to be a fairly relaxed schedule.

    I wish I can go to Botcon and ask hasbro about Generations Thundercracker and Dirge and Ask IDW about the de evolution of the non kid appeal autobots.

    Forget TC and Dirge... let's get Sunstorm. He hasn't been out at all yet, while the other two have had both a Botcon and Japanese release.

    Not saying they should never do them, but let's finish the ones we know before the ones we've already got out there...

    Also, I'm looking forward to reports from Botcon. Too bad there's no pictures at the panel...

    Interesting stuff.

    I predict the most embarrassing panel will be the TakaraTomy one (if there's Q&A time). Obsessive weeaboo fanboys combined with lack of respect and cultural misunderstanding = HILARIOUS TIMES.

    Seems like they have beefed up the autograph sessions this time? Wondering if I should bring my copy of CAR WASH OF DOOM for Bob to sign...

    Oh and doesn't Stan Bush normally have a booth in the dealers room as well?

    Surprised only one of the Takara guys are doing an autograph session.

    Wow, I thought things would be way busier, there would be panels out the wazzo & that you wouldn't be able to catch them all like at my local sci-fi/anime/comic/geek convention. Still, there's a fair amount I want to do & it's good to have spare time.

    I'm glad they released the schedule. I've planned my entire anniversary/vacation around it. Looks like I'll have MORE than ample time to see the sites and check out Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. Other than picking up my package Thursday night and being present for the Fan Film Festival contest, those two days are pretty much free for me! I'm really only going to stay the whole day on Saturday. Sunday doesn't seem all that interesting.

    That schedule seems to be missing two Botcon staples-- the 2-hour "big reveal" Hasbro Panel and MSTF, in particular. I wonder what happened there?

    It would seem as though the 2-hour deal has been replaced by the "Hasbro Studios" panel (presumably a big reveal of TF:p rime) followed by "Hasbro Marketing Review" which I assume will have all the new products. There's still the Hasbro designers panel on Sunday, but from memory last year the only new things they showed off were a Drift sketch and I think some more pics of Leader Starscream.

    We were already told that MSTF wouldn't be happening this year. No big loss.

    Yea, but you can't have enough Peter Cullen in your life :)  I was thinking of getting my 20th Optimus Prime box signed this time...
    The only real extras I would want would be if they have the Sharkticons as troop builders.
