Hasbro, Inc. has submitted a very intriguing name to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Submitted over the weekend, HasCon is currently the newest and soon to be most talked about trademark amongst Transformers fans.
“Organizing and conducting conventions, exhibitions, fan clubs and gatherings for entertainment purposes and in the fields of toys, animation, comic books, fantasy, gaming, popular culture, science fiction, television and film”
This news comes just a few days after the conclusion of BotCon 2016, which would be the “last” BotCon under current licensee FunPublicaitons. Fans have been speculating for well over a year now what the fate would be of the official Transformers convention. Does HasCon represent the next official con for not just Transformers fans, but a gathering of all of Hasbro’s main properties?
Let’s hear your theories in the discussion thread. Hat tip to TFwiki for the trademark filing.
