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.

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.

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.

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

Junkions will be mine! :)

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 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:
