    If anybody is considering going a few days early and adding some pre-Botcon family vacation activities, the hotel site allowed me to add Monday-Wednesday nights at the Botcon room rate, so there's a nice bonus.

    Born unofficial, back as unofficial. If it’s a good experience, it’s a good experience. I hope to be able to check it out.

    Didn’t know agabyss was behind this latest version. That’s certainly encouraging.

    Personally I'm beyond excited to see what exclusives are offered and what all Botcon can be without the iron hand of Hasbro dictating every move they make.
    And the team at Agabyss is a great group of folks, legacy attendees, and I know there's a lot of cool ideas that can come from that camp.

    Mine came today, although apparently they've been going out since at least the last week of January.

    What exactly is the fanbase's core?

    And why would you want to restrict it to that? Wouldn't you want it to continue to grow, evolve, and...transform with the times?

    Isn't the fanbase at its core any and everyone who loves transforming robots?
    I guess it depends on how you interpret it.
    That's how I interpreted it at least.

    Not a hard thing to do honestly if the only thing required is to be a genuine fan.
