As BotCon kicks into gear this Thursday evening, it is with mixed emotions that this does appear to be the “last BotCon in its current format.” A social media post has surfaced revealing a Hasbro newsletter giving to fans at BotCon confirming that the Fun Publications run BotCon will be no more after this year’s 2016 event.
Hasbro goes on to say in the letter that “Hasbro remains committed to providing fans with exciting experiences” around the Transformers brand, but does not specify if that means new conventions are to be held or if the “BotCon” name itself will make a comeback under new leadership. More news and updates were promised at a later time from Hasbro.
For those attending BotCon 2016, enjoy your time at the show as it does appear to be coming to a close. We’ll update all fans with any news as it becomes available.
