15 Years of BotCon - 10 Years for Me
(griffin's 2008 BotCon report)

Hasbro Product Display - Part 1
Display cases 1-4 (Animated, non-toy merchandise)

In one corner of the Dealer Room was the Hasbro Product Display.

Below is a photo from TFW2005 website, showing the Hasbro corner before the fans were let in.

The Hasbro desks.  Seemed to be a lot of time spent by most of the Hasbro people drawing copies of Animated Character Model sheets for fans.

A closer photo of one Animated Character sheet (Ultra Magnus), and one of the post-it pads they were giving out as their 'freebie item' for this year.

Below are Animated Cast Group Shot Cardboard displays - one on each end of the Hasbro corner like Bookends.  Photos from BotCon Website.

The life-size Cardboard Standin of Hasbro Designer Eric Siebernaler, who is currently in Australia for six months (probably on holidays).  Fans could write messages on it, and it was going to be sent to Australia to Eric.
