For the past 25 years, BotCon has been the convention fans have viewed as the standard for Transformers related events. This is the show that introduced Transformers collectors of all ages to exclusive figures, brand related special guests, previews of upcoming product from Hasbro, casino night, concerts, the Transformers Hall of Fame and of course the worlds largest Transformers exhibition hall! One thing BotCon has always been about from the very beginning though was the fans. The friends and relationships that were formed dating way back to 1994.
BotCon has seen many changes over the years. The show has been held in 11 different states and 3 countries, produced over 180 exclusive figures, and created countless hours of memories for fans from around the world.Botcon also allowed an opportunity to tell official comic stories with fan favorite characters in new worlds and situations. Some original Botcon characters have also been adapted to mainstream comic books and cartoon series. The legacy of these and other BotCon related characters can still be seen in the Transformers brand today. Some of the BotCon originated concepts, such as Shattered Glass, have found their ways in to media outside of Transformers, including the hit anime series ‘Gridman’ from Japan based Tsuburaya.
Although BotCon will always be about collecting and friendships, it is now much more than just an annual show. While the BotCon convention will return in the summer of 2021, BotCon as a place for fans to interact, to share stories, and to grab some new BotCon related memorabilia is here now!
