    In all honesty, I'd rather we have a Hasbro sponsored convention to celebrate ALL the great toy lines our local company has brought us.

    Transformers, G.I. Joe, Play-Doh, My Little Pony, everything.

    It'd be like BOTCON or JOECON but for EVERY line, toy, whatever they ever made.

    Hasbro could even have the money gained from admission be donated to charity.

    They could even have silent auctions for rare Hasbro items or even create some neat exclusive convention-only products where the money earned from them is also donated to charity.

    HasbroToyShop can sell stuff there, as well as the Transformers and G.I. Joe club, to get in more members (maybe have a show-only special first membership discount of only $20).

    Also, we could have a "first-buy" opportunity of new Hasbro products before they are mass released.

    Meet your favorite designers and learn what goes into making toys.

    Designer discussion panels.

    Sneak peaks of upcoming product lines.

    Learn the history of the company including the history behind it's greatest brands like Monopoly.

    Dealer's room of Hasbro-only items. Sorry Mattel!

    Toy Customizing seminars.

    Live Entertainment.

    Board game rooms.

    NERF Shootouts!

    Play-Doh creation area.

    A kids t.v. room with all sorts of shows (Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars, etc).

    Special Movie Screenings at the Providence Place Mall of their movies so far (Transformers (1986, 2007, 2009) G.I. Joe (80's, Resolute, 2009).

    And MAYBE a tour of Hasbro again (MAYBE).

    Thats actually not a bad idea netkid. I was thinking of a fan made one but otherwise email hasbro about that.

    I think fanmade would be easy to do, plus a lot easier to organize rather than trying to get a hold of hasbro, but its still a great idea

    Most likely yes.

    Plus, then we could get them as a side sponsor and then possibly have them become full sponsors of the show.

    I mean pretty much all of my suggestions that would require them would only happen if they got involved.

    The best I think we could do on our own, if we tried really hard would maybe be charity donations from admission, auctions, Dealer's room, toy customizing seminars, live entertainment, board game rooms, NERF shootouts, Play-Doh creation area, and A kids t.v. room with all sorts of shows (Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars, etc).

    I think maybe would seriously do a fanmade one and use like 50% of the profits towards hasbro and split the rest between our selves ;)
