Botcon 2010 Location Announced

In time for Christmas, the location and date of Botcon 2010 has been announced. The yearly Official Transformers Convention will be held at Walt Disney World's Dolphin Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from June 24th-27th, 2010.

I have never been to Botcon so can't vouch if the convention is worth the $134 per night hotel cost plus $5 for parking. So far details on guests and panels have not been announced but as the name implies it is all about Transformers so typically guests are voice actors, Hasbro representatives, and lots of dealers with TF loot. Panels are usually about future TF plans with likely a look at Hasbro's next toy lines, cartoon plans and IDW's comic book plans.

  1. Too bad I can't go because it's aaalll the way in Florida now, but I did have a GREAT TIME when it was in Pasadena, California this year. :)

    Everyone really liked my Bumblebee, kids lined up by the DOZENS for pictures with me and oh man, it was just a blast! I also had time to shop around and found some pretty sweet deals. I especially liked the dealers who sold scraps and parts and stuff so you could mod up or replace broken parts of existing TFs. It's not a HUGE convention, it's really about 2000-3000? It feels larger though because you meet so many great people who are totally into the TF fandom. I highly recommend Bot-con at least ONCE in your life if you are a true TF fan.
