Hasbro’s panel at BotCon 2009 is in mid flow and a few of the main USA sites are live blogging/twittering/posting updates from the convention. Unfortunately, no photos or videos are allowed, so there’s only lots of text to read.
The panel consists of Greg Lombardo, Aaron Archer, Bill Rawley, Joe Kyde, and Erik Siebenaler, as well as some of Hasbro’s writers and marketing team. There’s a lot of information on Masterpiece, Animated, Universe and Revenge of the Fallen toys for the rest of 2009 and 2010. Hopefully there will be some more news on why Animated was cancelled, but we may have to wait until tomorrow.
If you can’t be bothered to read through everything, I will post the big news from the convention: Hasbro are planning on becoming more environmental with their packaging and removing the twist ties. Amazing!
