Did anybody pay $340 or did all you guys wind up paying $415 like I did ?

If I missed something to chose member price, where was it ?

I sent an e-mail to the "contact us" will they fix this ? The system wont let me go through the process again or even log out.



I would wait until after Monday. Monday morning the crew will come in and start processing orders. You will get a confirmation email (normally sent to the email address associated with your TFCC membership account) with a receipt and a confirmation printout. When that comes in, check and see. Once you receive that email, you can straight hit reply and send your Club info, and most likely get it reduced.

I'm quite pleased, and even a little surprised, that they actually managed to get registration up when they said they would this year.

It just sucks for me because I don't get paid until next week and had to spend the money I put away for registration on some emergencies that came up :\

Ah well, I can be poor for a week. Hell yes registered :3

Registered! Really excited to be going back this year after missing last year. The boxed set so far is somewhat hit&miss for me, so hopefully the add-ons will increase its awesomeness.

Junkions will be mine! :)

See yall in Dallas!!

Did anyone else sign up for the Primus Golden Ticket BotCon 2012 instead of the regular Primus package? I couldn't resist some of the opportunities that come with the highest paid level so that I can do things easier at this year's BotCon. Every BotCon is a massive time crunch for me because of all that I have to do for Seibertron.com while I'm there. Hopefully getting a reserved seat at panels, getting to pick up my exclusives early and such will help make the trip a more relaxing time for me instead of it being four days of insanity while providing content and coverage for Seibertron.com.

I am not sure I am sold on getting the box set. I love Transformers classic molds but the character choices and colors are flat so far.

I couldn't swing it. I understand there are only 75 of the Golden Primus packages available, you are now the second person I know who scored one. With my wife going, a Golden Primus, a Golden minicon, and the add ons would be put a little over $1000.00 before airfare, food, accommodations and let's not forget, Toy money! I had to pass. You will have some backup this year though, I know El-Duque and myself are bringing laptops. You might even get to relax a little on your vacation! :lol:

Hey Brian fixed my problem overnight. He is one cool dude, working overtime.

On the golden Primus Package:
The no limit to exclusives deal concerns me. Likley half of these 75 people are going to be online dealers, not real fans. I dont see a problem with people buying one extra figure to scalp, but I think Funpub should not encourage dealers to buy out half the stock before the rest of us get in line. If each one of these guys buys 5 extras of each exclusive, thats half the stock right there. You do the math. Botcon should offer vouchers to any regular Primus package holders who dont get at least one of each exclusive. This voucher could be redeemed online for a pre-oredered restock specifically for these people.

Unless I misread it, there is a limit to how many can be purchased.

According to the official Botcon website F.A.Q., Gold Primus packages include the option to buy triple the Primue limits. Basically, 3. 3 of each add-on, 3 extra loose sets. That's it. Even if all 75 Gold Primus packages are purchased by scalpers (no offense Ryan and Michael) and they all buy the max limit, that is only 225 of everything. Certainly Funpub has enough of each set to allow for this. In 2010, there were some sets still available Sunday, except for the Sharkitcons. However, I'm confident all Primus package holders will get atleast one of each add on if they desire. Atleast they better, or I'm bringing the wrath! :lol: Just kidding. Or am I? :evil:

When I saw this option, I liked the perks but felt the price was way too high for what you actually got. Just out of curiosity, I texted a few other board members asking if they got the Gold Package to which every response was "no", generally preceded by a non-family friendly adjective.

I look at the Golden Ticket like a "Press Pass". It's targeted towards a small demographic of the fandom, that are either really well off or they work for/own one of the fan sites. Makes sense for those on the various website staffs to try and get up front to convey the Botcon experience to those not attending. Makes it much easier to document/record things said or done when you are close to the front. I will say though, that when the slide shows start for the Hasbro Panel, that that would really start to hurt the neck to look up sitting that close.

I would encourage Botcon to change it so that the Golden Ticket ISN'T an add on, but actually a Separate Package all together. There are Attendee Rates and Dealer Rates, make the Golden Ticket the "Press Rate".

I think Ryan should take that idea and present it to pete at the con..It's a great idea, The Golden ticket was waaaay out of my reach but it is a good idea.

Actually, I think other than for dealers, the biggest demographic they are going for here is just diehard fans who have never been to a BotCon. Once you've been to a BotCon or 2, or in my case 5 you start to realize that a lot of that "extra" stuff isn't all that important. Seriously, how big of a deal is it to sit in the 4th row or further back at an IDW panel? Sure, it's fun to be up close and personal for the Hasbro panel but it's not like they let you take pictures there. As far as meeting all the guests and the special extra party stuff, many of us have already had a chance to interact with many of the guests at past BotCons and you have to realize that other than an autographed print, you're not even getting your personal items autographed. Honestly, after attending multiple BotCons it becomes less and less about the the guests and even the toys and more and more about hanging out with the friends you have made over the years.

All of these things, along with the ability to make sure you have a slight edge in getting some of the toys are nice things to have, but for 95% of us who have already been there and done that at BotCons, it's nowhere near worth the cost. For someone like Ryan though whose entire weekend is already super jampacked, I do understand the convenience factor.

Truer words have never been spoken, my friend.

With the exception of last year (just wasn't interested in the set enough to justify the price) I've managed to make it ever year since '07. While I'm still excited about this year's set, the dealer room and all that jazz, to be perfectly honest all that toy related stuff only comes up to about 10% of my interest, and thus justification for going. 5% goes to finding out what Hasbro has planned for the next year, and 85% is seeing my buddies, geeking out all day and drinking all night with people I otherwise never get to see.

Can't wait to see you guys there :3

Truer words have never been spoken, my friend.

With the exception of last year (just wasn't interested in the set enough to justify the price) I've managed to make it ever year since '07. While I'm still excited about this year's set, the dealer room and all that jazz, to be perfectly honest all that toy related stuff only comes up to about 10% of my interest, and thus justification for going. 5% goes to finding out what Hasbro has planned for the next year, and 85% is seeing my buddies, geeking out all day and drinking all night with people I otherwise never get to see.

Can't wait to see you guys there :3


2011 actually had a pretty low turnout Seibertron.com-wise. However, having spoken to a lot of people thus far it seems like almost everyone I've met through BotCon since 07 (my first year, also) is going this year. Fun times ahead, to be sure!

Wait, you've been to a BotCon before? I thought you only chased cows.

OTFCC 2004, Botcon 2006, 2007, and 2008.

We don't chase cows up here, we tip 'em, lol. Watch Tommy Boy for reference (despite it taking place in Ohio). ;)

Haha, I've seen you at a BotCon before so I was just teasing there. Seems like ages ago though, you better find your way back one of these years, buddy!
