Oh hey! Here's this thing that's really expensive that you wanna do. We're just gonna dump that in your lap today. At some point. Today. Stay glued to your PC. Today.

I love Botcon and I'm pretty pissed at the timing for all their stuff this year. Registration goes up not even 2 full weeks after Christmas? The exclusives are being offered soon as well? Yeah, real smooth. Why can we not get solid info this long after Fun Pub has taken the reigns. I know these people aren't amateurs but you wouldn't know it by the way this is run. Every, freaking, year!

I agree......the timing on this registration is LAME!!! On top of that you would think we would at least get to see the rest of the Set Figures before making our decision on which package we're going with!!! Oh, and lets not forget those who had to make the "initial" $145 on the Hyatt Hotel this week also!!! I love Botcon, but this year seems rushed and full of mistakes!!! :BOT: :BOT: :BOT: :CON: :CON: :CON:

Im hoping that Reg goes live at night..It sucks having to work mornings and having no chance of registering early. I understand they want it to go off without any glitches but FFS. Members of TFCC should get first shot at Registering IMO..

What makes it worse is that their home office is like a few minutes away from where the con is actually taking place...You would thnk they would have had this stuff locked up months ago...

The time has come that many have been waiting patiently for. Registration is now live for attending packages. You can Register at the BotCon 2012 website.

During the registration process, you may notice that all six Boxset figures are pictured. This confirms that Metal Hawk is made from Generations Thunderwing with a new head and Evil Ultra Magnus from RTS Optimus Prime. BotCon tweeted that we will get to see clearer pictures of Metal Hawk later tonight. Below is pictures of all figures in alt mode and robot mode.

As you can see, the rumors that were posted here continue to be accurate. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your BotCon 2012 news.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Ugh, as soon as I got home about 15 mins ago I went straight to botcon.com, saw registration and hit it up. The Wednesday class was still clickable! -But when I clicked on it, it said sold out :( I was psyched because I wanted the Wed class. :( A bit sad about that. This year is likely the only one I'll be at the con early enough to got to one. :/

Either way, I'll keep checking back occasionally to see if any more get thrown up.

I'm with you. I already bought a RTS Tracks at Ross for $7 to start turning into Road Rage. I wonder why they didn't just call the Botcon figure by that name rather than "Evil Tracks"

The set seems to be pretty lackluster this year IMO; especially after the awesome Animated Stunticons we got last year. At least the rumors (which I'm guessing we can all agree are pretty accurate thus far) of the attendee figures seem to be interesting. Can't wait to see the SG Junkions and SG Swindle!

Easy Pass. Not interested in any of these figures for the price of them. Not really disappointed as I don't have the money anyway but still.

Why do you even bother buying one set if you don't like it. I'm sure there are plenty of people who would love to have one but can't.

@^ I think he means he will buy some later, not sell a set from the con. Even so, I will be selling my set after the con to pay for the trip, I will pick up a loose set for me, and maybe a set of Junkions to hold onto for rpetras ;)

Because they don't have the copyright on "Tracks", so they have to throw an indentifier in front of it so they can get away with it.

Wow more guesses of mine come to pass. that I guessed in previous threads here.

I guessed that the Botcon 2012 SG ultra magnus would use the powered convoy diaclone colors. obviously we all knew from the first pic this was using the RTS Deluxe optimus toy mold.

I guessed that Botcon 2012 metalhawk would be using the thunderwing toy mold. I was wrong about the inner golden robot being used. I Didn't think they'd color the thunderwing toy in the pretender shell colors for metalhawk.

I'm gonna guess that the most desired botcon 2012 figures from this set are the top 3: Metalhawk,evil tracks & SG Ultra magnus.

IMHO,I don't think that theirs gonna be much demand for Gigatron,treadshot & Soundwave.

IMHO,I think some are fed up with all these vechicle modes for soundwave. IMHO,I don't think some like the music label white colors on this toy.

IMHO,I don't think some like Botcon 2012 Gigatron. Because it's only a tank/bot & has no black stealth jet. I think animated blitzwing with a new head would have been the better choice as it has a tank & jet mode.

IMHO,botcon 2012 treadshot is such a extreme-extreme obsolete-obsolete character. plus the colors look too much like armada sideways or 1988 headmaster sired. they could have reversed the colors or done G-2 decals.

Motto: ""Assumption is the mother of all screw ups.""
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
I rushed through the registration and realized I paid non member price when I am a member. But dont remember seeing that option as I read everything.

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.

Thanks. I will call them. I got that conformation e-mail like 20 mins after I registered. It did say this:

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL AS IT IS UNMONITORED

But the site did list a "contact us" e-mail that I used. They fool you on the login page where there is a spot that says "new members join here for discounts". I logged in. I assumed that was the members account, didnt think I had to be logged in to my TFCC account too.
