Cybertron Con, Hasbro's biannual TF convention was held here this year. It's the second time the event has run so far, the first one was held in Shanghai. It started today, and will stretch from the 11th to the 14th of March.

So of course I had to go

Along with two special stowaways guests...

Bay Movie Optimus... Not pictured, the scaffolding set up so people could take pictures with Optimus.

Ninjas meeting Bay Movie Optimus ^_^ They don't need scaffolding.

I think someone's at the wrong convention...

Toys from the different series were on display. Some from Hasbro, some from private collections.

Ninjas aren't the only plushies to make a visit. [livejournal.com profile] purajo's G1 Jazz showed up too :3

More KreOs!

And some more...

Gentle medic... :p

Exploring the KreO section a little more, we find Red Alert and Soundwave (sittin' inna tree...)

KreO Prowl and Jazz cheering at a finish line.

It's like a family portrait, three generations in one shot ;p

Elsewhere in the hall there was a bot transformation competition (fastest time as of our leaving: 4 seconds from car to bot to car again 0_0;; ), a bunch of KreOs out for people to fiddle with, a Dance with Bumblebee screen, panels, Bay Movie/TF:Prime Season 2 screenings, a demo of the 'Fall of Cybertron' Xbox game and merchandise to blow cash on (pictures of my loot will be up later, once I've taken them). The lighting is pretty dim inside and some of the dioramas and fan-modified bots on display suffered for it, and there were no fanworks on sale (I guess since it's an official thing...)

Overall, it's a decent event, but it can't hold a candle to BotCon yet ;3

sounds like a fun little event! i've discovered that, as much as i love Botcon, i like the smaller cons better, because it's easier to have facetime with the people you want to see. ^_^

Heh, it's not so little in size. A bit scarce by way of the really interesting merch, but the hall is about the same size as BotCon last year :3 There's just large tracts of empty space between everything.

Since you weren't there, we brought Prowl plushie in your stead :p BotCon was fun, and since Jazz plushie didn't go then, both ninja plushies got to go to this one. *nuzz* (ninja says all ninjas had fun there ;3 )

It's not a convention, but Sundays here have that toy reseller's market that's almost like BotCon's, only a lot smaller? :3

*pets* Ah well, we can hope that a TF con will hit Australia someday? Since this is a South East Asia thing, it might... Australia is considered part of the territory, right?
