BotCon '05 Friday Preview!

On Friday, pre-registered package holders were treated to a 3 hour preview of the BotCon '05
dealers room! After a brief wait in a very long line, attendees were greeted by a 16' Optimus Prime
just inside the entrance to the main ballroom. The BotCon guests were also available for autographs just
inside the dealers' room. On display near the entrance was a diorama depicting a scene from this year's
convention boxed set: "Descent into Evil"! Many well known dealers were on hand and the BotCon goers
scurried to grab those hard to find items. The sales floor was a hive of activity. Hasbro was there in
full force handing out a free Transformers figure to each BotCon attendee. The Hasbro team was surrounded by
numerous display cases showing the latest and greatest in Transformers figures! What a total blast!
