    Botcon schedule announced

    The schedule for botcon just got posted.

    I wonder who the surprise autograph guests are on Saturday.... either Bay/Spielberg or Cullen/Welker?

    I'm betting that it's the Transformers: Prime cast, which will hopefully include at least Cullen since I've heard Welker doesn't do conventions.

    It's looking like a better and better show all the time.

    It's hard to say who the surprise guests are going to be, but my money would go on Peter Cullen and/or Frank Welker. One thing's for sure, I'll be in line for that autograph session.

    Hard to say. The fact that a Prime script reading is mentioned seems telling, but if so, it would probably mean someone goofed in terms of leaking what was supposed to be a "surprise" in terms of those "surprise autographs". We'll just have to see....

    (Although the BotCon Twitter account has denied meaning anything by it, they DO seem to have a fixation on the Rock lately....)

    Agreed on the Welker issue, as that's my understanding. HOWEVER, the only reason I would not rule him out is because I don't see why they would list him AND Cullen as a surprise. Cullen has done Botcon in the past, so I see no reason to keep him a secret.

    I'm sure we'll find out.

    Hrm, if they are doing a Prime script reading, he would be an incredible surprise member of it. Him, Adam Baldwin, or Jeffery Combs.

    Clicking the link I posted, you will see that both of these, Prime script reading and surprise autographs, happen on Sat.

    Which day is the Panel where they show future toys? Its my first botcon and I didn't see it on the schedule. I thought it was called the Hasbro Design Panel.

    So jealous of Jack Angel being there. I'm happy for you West Coast fans. When Botcon makes its way back to the Midwest again (if it ever does) we'll probably have a bunch of lame guests compared to this year's guest list.

    Indeed, I noticed that. That surprise autograph session also happens immediately after the Prime script reading.

    It's the Sunday Hasbro panel. Given the name change, perhaps we can expect a big, or at least notable, shift in the brand after the third movie ends (smaller toys, fewer toys, less "risk money," etc.). Also, in last year's panel, Aaron Archer took a good chunk of the time to start explaining where they were going with the Original Thirteen, so that's probably what the "Story Building" aspect is.

    Hate to correct you spock but it looks like the new toy panel is on Saturday at 11:00, it's called 2011 Hasbro toys - Hasbro Brand Team.

    Well, there were two Hasbro panels last years: Hasbro Marketing was on Saturday and Hasbro Designers was on Sunday. The marketing panel was where they basically talked about toys we had already seen (there were maybe a couple of new ones, but nothing earth shattering), and the designer panel was where we all screamed like little girls at a Justin Bieber concert. I assumed it was the same this year, just with different names. They could have moved the new toy panel to Saturday, but I would be very surprised by that as it is really the highlight of the show (you know, saving the best for last and all that).
