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.

BotCon 2015: Behind The Characters With Derrick J. Wyatt

Well I was lucky enough to be able to attend this year's BotCon convention in St. Charles IL. I had every intention of attending as many panels as possible, but unfortunately that only turned out to be two of the Friday panels... before the dealer room opened up. Long story short; I sold quite a bit of stuff, and spent quite a bit more.

While I only collect G1 figures, I did like the Animated line a lot. While they were aesthetically quite different from what we've become accustomed to in the Transformers franchise, their simplicity of design really grabbed me. In an era where Transformers are getting more and more complicated, their transformations really harkened back to the days of yesteryear, and was very reminiscent of the simplicity of the Generation 1 toys. It was really interesting to hear Derrick Wyatt talk about the line, and learn a bit about the "behind the scenes" stuff. I used my tablet to record the audio for those of you who were unable to attend.

Shattered Cast Uncut Episode 74: Please Collect Respectively

Another week, another show! I don't collect anything these guys talk about, but I find the show really entertaining, and it's one of the few podcasts that has held my attention continuously for more than a week or two. This will probably turn into a weekly thing on the site; they've shown us a lot of love, and it's only appropriate that we do the same... enjoy!
