UNICRON.COM REPORT -- BOTCON 2006
|What a show. What a great, busy, wonderful, fun show it was! The pictures to the left will give you an idea of what we were up to and some of the fun things we saw. (Each of the smaller pictures are links to a larger higher rez versions). Dang, there were a lot of other things we'd have like to have taken pictures of... jeez, a lot of other things. But this is about all we had time for (and remembered)! |
Before we get too far into our report, we want to say hello, and THANK YOU to all those who came to our booth and supported us, our site and our new products, but picking up a set of GOLDEN DISKS. It was really awesome to get to meet everyone and enjoy the whole experience... Thanks.
It was the one time we had to close up shop in the middle of 'business hours.' None of us were willing to miss the Hasbro panel. There's always some great new news and info there and so we closed down and made our way over. I can type pretty fast, so I took notes as fast as I could! Sure, much of this has been out on various sites already, but we thought we'd include everything we learned about. Hopy you find some interesting new tid bits, you haven't heard before!
Original package art, Perceptor. Wow!
Beneath this, toward the bottom of this page, you'll find photo galleries the fan art display and Hasbro exhibits. Enjoy!
Hasbor panel: Aaron Archer, Greg Lombardi
Classics Cliffjujmper coming as a recolor of bumblebee. (Crowd goes wild!) Ramjet different wings, different head different missiles than Starscream.
New commentary by Flint Dille one of the story writers… Executive story consultant,
One featuer will be the Japan only story (we always called it “Scrambulski!” (because that's what it sounds like they're shouting! But really it's) "Scramble City".
They also went through the 35mm film and found things... She wouldn't say what it was, but she was going through film real frame by frame... found something she hadn't known, and thought, hm, this looks kind of cool. Then I showed it to our panel and they were looking like it’s Christmas time! Going crazy w/ excitement. (Buy the CD to find out!)
I can speak to this. It's pretty cool. With this feature on little buttons pop up and tell fun trivia facts while the movie plays. Some were pretty basic, others really cool things I had never heard before.
* Alternators cannot be in comics because of licensing. Classics could be, but it’s up to IDW. Didn't indicate a preference. (DANG, I really want those toys featured in comics.) *...There’s a good chance that Classics continues into 2008.
