I was just going to post about the same thing.  All the more reason for the pony fair organizers to move forward with their vintage 80's toy collector fair in 2018 :).

maybe...  they’ll do Hascon every odd year and allow the MLP Fair the even years??

I was gonna make an effort to attend the 2018 one if it happened, oh well. Still in the same place, at least.
Hoping for the MLP Fair like everyone else though!

Sure, sure, skip a convention year, Hasbro... you know the G1 collectors will still be over here, doing our thing...

Interesting.  To me that suggests Hascon did not go exactly how they wanted it to.  Perhaps not as many attendees as they expected.

My guess is that they don't have the internal resources to justify this as a yearly event. It was entirely planned, executed, & staffed by Hasbro employees. I'm sure that a lot of time was taken away from those peoples' regular daily jobs in the weeks prior to the event.

I'm glad to hear they will be back again in 2019... I'm marking my calendar now. :cheer:

Did they even have any pony shopping at this? Just the new ponies I take it if they did.

I'm thinking they wanted this event to be like an east coast version of D23 which is Disney's big Convention in Anaheim for all the different IPs they own so there's Star Wars and Marvel and Pixar stuff going on as well. D23 also happens every other year.
