BotCon 2015: The Birth Of Transformers With Kojin Ono

The absolute highlight of my trip to BotCon this year, it was amazing to hear Kojin Ono talk about the process that lead up to the designs of some of the most iconic figures in the Transformers toy line. He was kind enough to share quite a few previously unseen early concept designs from the line, and it was incredible to see how much some of these figures changed from "concept" to "execution". Top that with the announcement that Takara-Tomy is bringing back Diaclone as a modern toy line, and this little nerd was on cloud nine.

I took the liberty of recording the audio, and snapping as many pictures as I could, for those of you who were unable to attend.
