Convention News: In a Surprise Announcement, Botcon is set to Return in 2021

There are some news items that fans are very used to seeing such as updates about toys being released or press releases about official products. What many fans did not expect to see was news that Botcon would be returning in 2021!

Botcon (a play on the terms AutoBOT and DeceptiCON) started as a small fan convention in 1994 and eventually would grow to have an international presence and become the official Hasbro Transformers convention. It ended in 2016 when Hasbro removed the license from Fun Publications, who had run the convention since 2005.

Toys: Scans and Translations from Hasbro Germany's 1989 Catalog

Toys: Scans and Translations from Hasbro Germany's 1989 Catalog

In the 80's, it was common practice for toy companies to hand out physical catalogs of their products showing the entire range of toys for one year in one publication. I recently obtained Germany's 1989 #Transformers catalog and now you can take a look at scans from the catalog along with translations of its text (thanks to Google Translate)!
