Looking at the Botcon.com site, it doesn't look like registration has gone live yet. So you still have time.

It sounds like brochures should be going up shortly, though, and once it does go live it tends to sell out kind of quickly.

Your best bet might be to sign up for their twitter feed on the site to receive an update when registration goes live. That way you're less likely to miss out.

Oh, good catch! It is up! :)

I'm having no problems with it, however, beyond my regular PDF issues. Make sure your adobe acrobat reader is up to date to open the pdf.
If that doesn't help - what exactly are the issues you are encountering?

Well, the first time I tried it, it locked up my computer. So then I thought maybe I should update my Acrobat Reader - which I did. It acts like it wants to open, but it just locks up the page, but not the computer now. So, now I've opened it on a different computer. I just have to e-mail to my computer. Or something. Eeesh. How frustrating.

My new paranoid concern is this: How soon will registration be sold out? Are we talking, like, within hours of it going live, or a day or two? I've got Twitter just so I can keep an eye on it, but I may not be able to do anything about it unless I'm close to home. I've already bought airfare and hotel, so I would be extremely bummed if I missed out on registration because it sold out before I could get to a computer...Any educated guesses out there?

once registration goes live you have an hour maybe 2 to get in the custom class, a day or so for the non attendee and bag sets to be sold out and 2 days for the primus sets to be spoken for. This it seems like it sold out realy fast, the animated theme seems to have made alot of HC ani fans happy.

This is sad to hear if this is true but I understand completely as I have similar issues along with depresson and OCD traits. Actually now that I read that I don't feel bad about having issues as Im not the only one and even well known people aren't immune. Have I told the story on the real reason I wish to get to Botcon? Im gonna leave that for another thread.

Wait, does the general admission only apply for the weekend? Or does it apply for every day?

And can Protoform packages run out? Or can you get unlimited Protoforms for everyone you know?

General admission is only available Saturday and Sunday. The specific hours the dealer room is open to the gen.ad. is on the site somewhere (FAQ I bet).

Protoform packages are *supposed* to only be available to immediate family members, I think. Don't quote me on that. The details are in the brochure, though, I'm pretty sure.

giantrobotlover8806 wrote:I know Peter Cullen will be there, any word if Frank Welker will be there?

No word yet. But they've been releasing guests just about every day this week, so I'd keep my eyes peeled on the front page or botcon's homepage/twitter/facebook.

Also, was this suggestion already in the guide?
For some Botcon locations (like the one on Disney property in 2010), food can be overall expensive, especially if you don't leave the property. My friend recommended bringing some dry foods with me on that trip. I took muffins and ramen last year, and didn't regret it. I plan on taking ramen and snack bars this year. :)

Yes, this is great advice. The wife and I always make it a point to stop by whatever grocery store is nearby or if we take a cab from the airport have them drop us off there quickly to pick up a loaf of bread, peanut butter, jelly, cereal bars and some other things to eat in for the week.

In California in particular, even the grocery stores are expensive, but it saves us quite a bit of money in the long run rather than eating out every meal.

Usually they wait until the convention itself to release the prices, so I don't think they've officially been announced yet.

However, G.B. Blackrock has been keeping a fantastic Data Sheet of all the Exclusives and Prices since 1994 here, so it should give you some idea of what to expect.

Registration package pick-ups and the club store both open at 6pm on Thursday. Two questions.

1. Will these two have the same line, or will there be two lines (one for the registration package pick-ups and one for just the club store)?

2. What time would be ideal for one get in line?

I have a feeling both are the part of the "secret" guest signing deal. I guess they'll be there for the Prime reading, anyway, along with the rest of the cast for whatever episode they'll be doing.
Or that's what I've assumed since seeing the Prime reading announced. So that's just my own speculation.

You should actually have a specified time that you can get in line for package pick up - it should be in the recent confirmation email in the attached PDF it says to print out. Basically they space out letting people get in line about every hour starting at 6 (so then 6, 7, 8, 9 o'clock, and you get let in at your appointed time, though you can line up outside the room, waiting the hour before, I believe).

And I don't know about previous years, but last year you got in the Store line after pick-up, if you wanted to get in line at all. I think you *may* need your badge to get in line here. Can't recall....
So there are two (really more, they split it up in the store lines to cash/card/ and however many folks they have working there [so like 4-6 lines just for the store]), and the pick-up line, once you get close enough if the line gets too long, get split up into last name alphabetically. So, say, my last name would be Ryu. I'd go in the line for Q-R or R-S depending on how they split it. Get it? :) It's sort of you just follow the signs and the masses, and it's pretty easy to figure out once you're there. :) But there's always staff and fellow fans to ask once you're there too. :)

I arrived late last year so had to ask around...."I missed my let-in time, do I have to wait in line here? -points to line waiting for their let in next hour- "No, you can go on in" *big smiles :D*

Sorry I couldn't respond before now. Little/no internet at the sheraton for me.

As far as I'm aware, for future reference to any questioning parties, General admission is only available saturday and sunday. for any events (panels, autographs), I believe badge holders (like primus) get first pick.

Ok, I got an interesting query for you guys, and something quite unusual at that

With this year's BotCon being in Dallas and me still stuck in Europe (unless I win the lottery... :PRAY:) I'm so freakin' peeved! :BOOM: In come my angels of in-laws. Since I can't go, they've decided to try and go in my stead, and experience a slice (a REALLY big slice) of my world. Aren't they the sweetest?

Thing is, all they've experienced of my world is buying me toys under my guidance, and my father-in-law has bought himself Ice Cream Truck Skids and Mudflap (since dairy is a major of his). With the convention the size it is, I can see them easily get overwhelmed, at least that's my fear. I know I'd be, but in a positive way :grin:

We've already decided to try the (treacherous) General Admission on either Saturday or Sunday, so no real problem there. My request is, can any of you veterans give my folks advise, pointers, even warnings? Or maybe even better: would any of you be willing to act as a tour guide of some sort? :)

I'm not asking for much, just for their experience to be a memorable one and for them to see what TF collectors world has to offer
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

"If you try to please everyone, nobody will like it" - a very wise guy.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Landfill (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Gen Admin? Hah, I might actually be able to do that, contrary to my first internal response. I say that because, while I normally get Primus, I don't really take advantage of it (I go to one to maybe four panels at most (and I only went to that many before because I was A.) tired and B.) waiting for another panel that came later, and wanted to make sure I had a good seat), and spend the MAJORITY of time costuming/spotting or in the dealer hall. And I *should* be able to roam freely with this year's costumes.

Downside is, what's a "normal" fan do? I mean....lol, really, what experience do you want them to have, is what you need to be explaining.

Like I would walk around the dealer hall, explain stuff (stuff about botcon itself, or about Transformers in general), answer questions, introduce friends/people in the fandom, etc. I could at least give them a tour for an hour or two, even if I happened to be in costume at the time (in which case I could devote even MORE time to helping them).
Do you want someone with them all day, or someone to more or less to get them comfortable being there and then let them roam free? lol. Why not have them create an account on here and ask questions? Then they can even begin to "meet" and "know" some of us, and then several of us could switch off showing them what people in the fandom do. Like, I wouldn't have the same knowledge or lifestyle as a hardcore collector, or someone like Sabrblade who could probably tell them anything they wanted to know about transformers. So several of us could meet up withthem over the day and "trade off" if they wanted to? :o)
Or have the Seibertron booth in on the hijinks and whoever's manning it can call forth a guide. ;)
Again, I don't *really* know what exactly you want for them, so: elaborate? :)
I take commissions!
