    Like I said in the other thread, this is probably why they had the new generations there, to give this new con something special to premiere with. Kudos to them if that's the case. Gotta give props when they respect the fans of their lines like that.

    I think this will become huge. I really hope Hasbro continues with this type of brand expansion.

    Yeah, that license was probably only for the US.

    That said, I'm surprised it took this long, but I'm glad they're finally getting recognized. Ignoring the country's current economic standing, China perhaps has a larger ratio of hardcore Transformers fans than any other country, with perhaps only the Philippines coming anywhere near them in regards to fan dedication. I mean, look at all the crazy fan-kits that come out there. Look at how both the Transformers movies did there: they're some of the most successful movies in China's history. I'm sure we can expect Hasbro to further acknowledge China in the future, in many other ways.

    That said, we really need to step up our game. Let's show the world the US and Canada can be hardcore too! :p

    Seems short-sighted to limit the covention's scope to the Transformers Cybertron line like that. ;)

    I'm just kinda curious which company or group of TF fans is in charge of this new Cybertron convention. do we know the TF fans? do we know the company?

    Is hasbro or takara solely in charge of this new Cybertron convention?

    being that hasbro & takara equally stock china stores with both of their TF products. which company hasbro or takara has more of a active role in the conventions panels & Q & A sessions. do both hasbro & takara 50/50 share panel/Q & A responsibilites.

    I just find it incredible that the first official cybertron convention reveals the biggest TF toy of all time MP Rosdimus Prime.

    ACToys is the main sponsor for this event. Hasbro China is the host.
    Takara (HK) supports the show with their new products. Old toys and showroom is filled with fan's collection and toys.
    This year they choose Shanghai. Next year will be some other city in China.
