Some interesting news has emerged regarding the possible
location of BotCon 2014 thanks to some detective work by TFW2005 members. According to a recent phone inquiry and conversation with a Pasadena Convention Center employee, the Pasadena Convention Center, home to many past BotCons, has possible dates in June 2014 scheduled for yet another BotCon convention, according to the employee.
Furthermore, the Sheraton Pasadena Hotel appears to also have a block of rooms scheduled for the same time frame with a discounted rate similar to prior BotCon years.
Although we've heard many rumors regarding a return to Pasadena, please treat this as a RUMOR and take with a grain of salt. The location and time of BotCon 2014 has NOT been confirmed by any representatives of BotCon or the Transformers Collector's Club. If/when official confirmation is confirmed we will report it here. Additionally, as more information crosses the wire regarding BotCon 2014, refer back here for any updates.
Sound off on the potential of this rumor after the jump.Read Replies (0)

For the second assortment of their IDW Comic pack-in Transformers Generations releases, Hasbro went with a pair of retooled / redecoed releases. One of the two was Hoist
, a retooled Trailcutter featuring a new head and a crane in place of the truck bed cover / hatchback panel accessory Trailcutter sported. While a simple retool, it is very effective and also true to how the original Hoist was retooled from Generation 1 Trailbreaker.
Hoist's deco is quite simply, gorgeous. The green and orange contrast as well now as they did in 1985, and the updated design is very much in keeping with the "Classics" style of reimagined Generation 1 Autobots, while still being distinctly Hoist. The new head in particular I feel is very well done, with nice yellow eyes and faceplate evoking Hoist's unique look. The crane accessory folds up to become a small blaster for Hoist - unusually conservatively small among Transformers toys who have huge blasters. It's a different style of design though, which makes it nice and refreshing.
We've been waiting a long while for a new Hoist to add to our Classics shelves, and while the Revenge of the Fallen Hoist filled the space nicely in the interim, this toy is definitively the Classics Hoist in this fan's eyes. I enjoyed the Trailcutter toy a lot, but I would say Hoist, with his brighter and frankly more unique deco, is the more appealing of the two. If you can only get one, consider Hoist (if you can though, get both, they are both amazing toys and characters deserving of your time, and excellently designed little toys to boot).

By way of The Spacebridge on Facebook
, we can bring you a look at something rather cool. Back in the original Transformers Universe line in 2003, Hasbro had planned to release a redeco of G1 Thunder Clash / Machine Wars Optimus Prime as Motormaster. The line's unpopularity with retailers curtailed the plans and other than the occasional prototype, nothing has ever been seen of this toy.
Today, The Spacebridge has added some Hasbro Color Guides for this unreleased Universe Motormaster to his Prototype Transformers gallery
. These are the sheets used by Hasbro in determining the final deco, paint apps and other details - a rare look at the design process of any Transformers toy, but doubly so for one that was never released and is rarely seen. Be sure to check them out, along with all the other cool looks at rare and obscure items in that same gallery.Read Replies (0)
