    Last saturday (24) we had here in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at the Coleciona Toy Store, the 2nd "Encontrebas" TF convention, organized by the Universo Transformers and ClubeTF fan associations, and sponsored by Hasbro do Brasil and Paramount. This event is one of a series that have been promoted this year, and we have another due in December. The toy display theme of the convention was the parallel between G1 and the 2009 movie characters. We had toys, cartoons, fan talk, some recognized faces from the Brazilian TF fandom scene, along with respected names like Marcelo Matere and Makoto Ono.

    Some of you might know that we have been doing conventions and fans get togethers since 1999. Through the years we have been able to reach major achievements, like bringing together voice actors (from the original 1985 cartoon to the 2009 movie), introducing fans to the overseas toy market, creating communication channels between toy companies, magazines, websites, distributors and fans, thus estabilishing our own position as the Brazilian Transformers reference and source of information. So, what makes this particular series of small conventions so important? Well, finally we have official support.

    We are glad to say that we're working together with Hasbro do Brasil and Paramount. This has been probably our greatest goal, well worth the 10 years of effort and time put forth by at least 40 different people. During this time we got married, had kids, changed our lives, but never changed the love we have for the toys and respect we keep for the brand and everything involved. This saturday was a success, we had drawing contests for the kids, lots of official material from both Hasbro and Paramount, and what's best: perspective for the future. For the last 10 years we've been following from a distance the developments for Hasbro in Brazil, ever since the Estrela years and the brazilian industry, and as far as we can see, we're very happy with how it turned out.

    So, we'd like to give a big thank you to Hasbro do Brasil for their amazing support and initiative. We've been given lots of expectations, and it simply couldn't be better. Also, special thanks to the guys behind the Universo Transformers, for bringing new fuel to these conventions. Well done.
