Most likely. But not regarding this situation. :P

Seriously, I was just saying you might get something going with Pete and end up at BotCon as a guest or something.


You're right! Just got an email from Pete offering me a Devcon figure and free passes to Botcon. So I am pleased.

Awesome stuff! It's a fun weekend.

Not sure if this is new, I know it isn't completely so, but IDW just had a Q&A on Youtube with the comic writers and all three current writers will be at Botcon. I know Roberts was already announced, but I think that's the first word of Barber and Scott being there. More cool stuff!

BotCon 2014 Guest Announcement - IDW Transformers Writers John Barber and Mairghread Scott

Postby Va'al » Tue Apr 22, 2014 4:40 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
While the official BotCon website has yet to make an announcement, the IDW Publishing Dawn of the Autobots Live Panel (which you can watch here) has confirmed the presence of both Transformers comics writers John Barber (Robots in Disguise) and Mairghread Scott (Windblade) at the event! They go to join the already announced James Roberts and a host of other big names from the franchise, all of which can be found on the Guests page of the BotCon website.

BotCon Figure Set

They sailed across the inky-black where the heavens can’t be found. No light could show, no wind could blow, no soul could make a sound. Yet each mech aboard, garbed for war, holding a cutlass or a gun… And from the spotter above came the sign – We’re bound for Cybertron!

But Cybertron is not defenseless. Noble, wise, and loyal to the cause, the KNIGHTS OF CYBERTRON are steadfast in their protection of their homeworld. Any villainy that dare threaten the planet will be met with valiant courage, unwavering will, and Cybertron’s greatest warriors!

The BotCon 2014 Convention set - PIRATES VS KNIGHTS! This year’s amazing five-figure set explores a whole new theme while also celebrating 30 years of the Transformers! This is more than just an homage set though, as it brings characters from across the mythos into the Fun Publications “G1 cartoon” universe, while also FINALLY bringing some long time fan favorite characters to life! And our biggest reveal? The centerpiece of our set features the FIRST HEADMASTER Transformer sold in over 20 years! Keep an eye on BotCon.com for ALL the incredible figure reveals!

DECEPTICON PIRATE CANNONBALL – A smarmy, charismatic pirate leader, who rules through charm and subterfuge, rather than force and intimidation, Cannonball is a Bot who’d sooner talk his way out of a fight or into a prize, but is more than capable when he needs to do battle. While he specializes in deception, fraud and even out-and-out impersonation, Cannonball is also skilled with blades and melee weapons – a true swashbuckler.

DECEPTICON PIRATE FERAK – Ferak is a sadist and the Pirates’ maintenance man. He keeps the ship together and can cobble Engines of Terror for casting fear on their victims. He used to be part of an elite Decepticon team called “Squadron X” during the war, but has found adapting to peacetime rather difficult. He is partnered with the diminutive TORNADO, a former member of Squadron X, whose alternate mode is a gun, but an ill-designed gun that jams and threatens to explode if a round of ammunition becomes lodged (it happens a lot – Ferak has the powder burns to prove it).

DECEPTICON PIRATE SCORPONOK – Scorponok is the fusion of machine and a Nebulan named Zarak. Last we had seen of Scorponok, he was flying through space serving as the battleship for the tattered remains of the Decepticon army. Now, however, Zarak has been forced to scuttle much of that battleship, rebuilding Scorponok into a smaller body.

AUTOBOT KNIGHT GINRAI – He is the gruff, pragmatic and
downright paranoid military leader of the Autobots/Maximals. An old-school warrior “Bot of Action”, Ginrai has earned the rank of Knight Commander. A veteran of the old conflicts, he’s not entirely comfortable with the peace, constantly waiting for the “other shoe to drop”.

AUTOBOT KNIGHT DEVCON – A loner and former bounty hunter who holds the rank of Knight Sergeant, Devcon is the Batman to Ginrai’s Commissioner Gordon – the Bot willing to cross the line, bend the rules, shake down an informant. He doesn’t play well with others, but he gets the job done every time.

This offering will be hot, so don’t miss out! Order your Primus or Iacon package today!

How do you figure? It was said at last year's BotCon to take place after Termination, acting as the finale to the Wings Universe.

I was a little ticked off at the price, but then I noticed I had misread - Friday night's Universal Studios event is included, and not another extra $75. So, more ok with it now.

I believe they said earlier this year that while it IS the "finale"(I believe it was actually stated to be the last story) to Wings, it takes place before. As well, Ginrai's Bio in the brochure says that Cybertron is at peace and protected by the Knights. That doesn't gel with the ending of Termination, where the Autobots were told to leave Cybertron or be exterminated. It does, however, gel with the "2nd Golden Age" that G2 and A Flash Forward take place during.

Yes, but Termination was set in 2013 AD (according to the official Wings Universe timeline). 30 years after the G1 cartoon would be roughly in 2037 AD.

so... please forgive my ignorance but i have some questions about registration:

im planning on buying this set whether its straight from the source or aftermarket. theres a non attendee package correct? based on how theyve operated in the past, its just the 5 figure set, but is it only loose bagged or can i get the actual box? what is the price like from the source? will they ship it right to me? would it actually be easier to buy it from the aftermarket?

thanks in advance!

Huh, look at that. I thought Termination took place in the future. I even looked for a time line earlier today to check that.

If you're not attending, the Iacon Package is the one you'll want. It costs as much as the Primus Package (this year being $395.00 for Club members) and does contain the five figures in their boxed packaging (loose bagged sets are only available to those who purchase the boxed sets in the Primus or Iacon Packages first).

Full info from the brochure:
The Iacon Package ($395 for club members or $495 for non-members)
is for those who cannot attend the show and consists of:
Transformers: Pirates vs. Knights Convention Set: A five-figure boxed
set which includes Decepticon Pirates: Cannonball, Ferak, Scorponok,
and Autobot Knights: Ginrai and Devcon, all presented in an illustrated
display box. Also included with the set is a certificate of authenticity,
tech specs and figure weapons.
• Convention pin.
• Convention program with comic.
• Does not include the bonus attendee figure.
• Items will be shipped three to four weeks after the show to your home
address. (Use the BotCon.com registration link to order this package.)

'Course, this doesn't include the souvenirs, which we know next to nothing about and can only be purchased at the event (any leftovers get put on the Club's online store).

Well, it only costs 40 bucks to become a member, so get the membership and then the membership pricing to equal $435 instead. ;)

and if you do sign up to be a member to get the Iacon package, you'll get the free club figure this year as well (which is Protoform X, am I right?) right? :???:

gotta say I am tempted. I'm worried that demand for Scorponok is going to result in attendees being able to fun their 2nd set or all the souvenir figures off reselling one Scorpy, and that he'll be harder to get than an intact Black Zarak. then again, I'm not keen on what I've heard about the club's practices or service regarding international customers, so... :BOOM:

Sorry, the deadline for that figure was back in March. You'll get whatever the 2015 figure is instead if you join the Club right now.

I see. Fair enough. But basically, if you're wanting the box-set/Iacon package, it definitely seems worthwhile to sign up to the club and save a bit off the cost AND get a free figure.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

but uhhh... holy... 100 dollar difference between member and non member? thats kinda gross. i think ill be going aftermarket on this..


Aftermarket will run you much more than that. Even at cost plus shipping, you'd barely be saving over the cost of Iacon package + membership. And as mentioned before, you'll get the 2015 club freebie figure, which you could sell to offset cost even more.
