But because he was unable to pay or actually get the figures produced/shipped/packaged like he was supposed to in his license, Hasbro yoinked it and gave it to Master Collector/Fun Publications, which has now run TWO SUCCESSFUL AND PROFITABLE shows. He first joined with Jon and Karl Hartman back in the 90's as some financial power to help create a better BotCon. At the dinner at BotCon 2002, Glen Hallit announced that HE was now the official Transformers convention, which was a huge surprise to both Karl and Jon because Glen never told them before hand. After that, they all met in Chicago to look at a location for BotCon 2003. It was there that Glen more or less cornered Jon and Karl in to a room with his lawyer and got them to sign over their rights to the show. He then did an interview with TFormers where he lied about why Jon and Karl weren't involved now, so Jon and Karl did an interview with TFW2005 to counter his BS. In case others have forgotten, Glen Hallit was also the man who blamed European Transformers fans for his not making a profit at OTFCC Europe and then turned around and said it was their fault that they will never have an official show there again. He called TFW2005 an amateur site at best, personally came at me because I said Scott McNeil, for the 4th year in a row, was boring compared to BotCon 2004's guest of Peter Cullen. He lost the hotel for OTFCC 2004 only months before the show was set to happen. To top it off, he had to make a payment the day before the show, was unable to do so himself, so borrowed money from his own staff members and apparently Joel from BBTS. The hotel was smart enough to refuse his credit or his checks. He paid Dan Gilvezan a check that went to a bank account that was empty. And issued refund checks for fans with the same bank account. He had an excuse for everything that went wrong. He was just waiting for the money from the show to go in to the bank account. It was always Hasbro's fault too. Hard Hero made a custom Unicron statue for Glen Hallit. It ended up delayed, and Glen Hallit publicly ridiculed Hard Hero for it. At that point, Hard Hero released E-mails and other evidence proving that the reason it was delayed was because Glen Hallit was actually demanding changes that they had already agreed on *A WEEK BEFORE THE SHOW*. Now he's back, he's trying to make ammends. Are you ready to forgive him? Are you ready to believe that he's a changed person, that he really cared about the fandom after insulting it time and time again? Are you ready to forgive a guy who lied to ALL OF US time and time again? If you are, say so, and we'll get Pat Lee here, because I'm sure you're all ready to forgive him too. FYI, the AllSpark has requested that no one post any "WHERE IS MY MONEY" comments or anything insulting in that thread. So please don't. However, you can post it here. Let's see if Glen is ready to come to a board that DIDN'T include a majority of his FREE staff (see: #wiigii!).
