HYPE TRAIN LEAVES NOW
BOTCON 2019 HYPE TRAIN
I’m assuming this is a good thing right ?
Yes more botcons (hopefully)
Wow, I did not see this coming... but it makes pretty good sense now that I think about it.
Their plan must've been to take over Botcon for total control all along. Gotta say, this is one corporate takeover I can kind of get behind
I really hate to rain shit on everyone's parade, but what if this is just for naming the subgroup that Punch/Counterpunch is in? I mean he converts from Bot to Con.
Wait, does this mean Botcon is back?
Or they are just securing the name to prevent others from using it
They do have to use it in 5 years or they'd lose the trademark I believe. They'll have to use it in one way or another.
At the United States Patent & Trademark Office, this new trademarked is filed under the following:
"Tradeshows, conferences, and conventions for entertainment purposes; providing a website featuring information about robot toy shows"
First thought: "Botcon" will become an attraction within Hascon. You'll go to Hascon and spend all your time in the "Botcon Hall," or whatever.

Interesting but hardly unexpected. Hasbro was very unlikely to let that trademark go to any one else.
As for what it might mean it's too early to be certain.
Aside from that, if this were indeed merely for toys, toy subgroups or something similar, they'd have defined the goods and services as "Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms", as they have been consistently doing for the past two decades.
It's too early to speculate...but that's won't stop me from doing it.
Edit: What?! It's Fun Pub, not Hasbro?! Fuck that.
MAKE SOME ROOM!!!
THERE IS NO ROOM ONLY BOTCON 2019 HYPE.
Botcon 2019 San Diego FTW! Yeah, selfish, I admit but I'd be able to put a few of you up, lol!!
Awesome, but are they still going to hold HasCon? Is it still going to have Transformers?
