BotCon June 19-22 and Universal Transformers Fan Experience Friday

Get your butt to BotCon this weekend. In Pasadena's attempt to host convention based on everything remembered from 80's and 90's TV and oh so many reptile shows we have BotCon. The 30th Anniversary Celebration will feature special guests, panels and huge 200+ exhibit hall. The theme this year is Pirates vs Knights. Robot pirates and knights already sounds like a 10-year-olds dream come true. The theme can remembered in a 5-figure set only available at the con.
