BotCon wrote:We have turned on the BotCon 2013 online registration system! You may want to call your credit card company and make sure they don't stop your registration with a security hold and let them know to allow your charge to go through from Fun Publications.

If you are registering with another member, you will need THEIR log-in and password to receive member pricing.

If you complete your order with non-member pricing, we CANNOT adjust your pricing. Please understand what you are ordering and confirm the pricing before you check out. If you do not think you are getting the correct pricing, do not continue. If you continue, you are agreeing to the pricing you are being presented.

You have 10 minutes to complete your registration, please make sure you know what you want before you start. We suggest that you make a list for each person of the items you want to select for them BEFORE you begin registration. Then you can work from that list.

If you have not read the Information tab brochure, please do so before you register as you have 10 minutes to complete your registration before the system puts your items back into stock. You cannot hold them in your cart longer than that amount of time, however you can start over.

We do reserve the right to limit any member's quantities if we deem them excessive.

Please note that we have added a NEW item this year. Because of the concern of people not being able to participate in the class, we are offering to each registered attending member the opportunity to purchase an assembled unpainted Class Figure. This is limited to one per person, per package ordered. However, that person must pickup their items at registration. DO NOT create phantom attendees to get additional Class Figures as you will not be able to pick them up. This is NOT a souvenir and is NOT subject to the Golden Ticket souvenir rules. In addition, we will not pre-announce the figure or class kit mold, it will be a surprise at the show!

Dear FunPub:

I am not buying that ugly set you put out. Can you honestly tell fans that this is a great set? It looks like you slapped some paint on some crappy figures. Why dont you take the time to look what the online TF community is saying?

You are not getting my money! FunPub you should feel ashamed to call yourself TF fans for putting out a garbage looking set like this one. Hang your head in shame!

Actually, I think the set is pretty cool. Coming from someone who can't even pay hundreds of dollars for a BotCon set due to financial struggle.

Ugly? I for one find this set to be quite attractive. And I love the Beast Machine character tie-in. It's a creative idea. I applaud you Fun Pub.

The people over at BotCon have a fairly juicy announcement to make about registration! Make sure you check back in a couple of days for confirmation, and, obviously, register now to attend the big summer event in San Diego!

Image


Hello BotCon fans!

We have run through our allotment of Iacon (non-attending sets) and are considering moving some of the Primus attending sets over to Iacon non-attending.

However, we don't want to do this until we are confident that everyone has registered that intends on coming to San Diego. So, we will re-visit the numbers in the next few days and make a decision as how to assist those who can't come but want the figure sets.

If you are coming, make sure to register VERY soon for BotCon 2013 today!

See you in San Diego!

Brian

In reply, I hope they can keep moving it around. Flying is so expensive today, having the con centrally located, or at least moving around, helps make it possible for a LOT of people.

Yeah, and the early announcement of San Diego made it possible to plan out the trip ahead of time. Hopefully the Club follows this up next year by announcing the site five months ahead of time.

Agreed! Earlier is way better. (Given, I know they do what they can. Often, convention centers are booked up to ten YEARS in advance. I don't envy the Botcon planners at all.)

I skipped the set (as always so far) as I'm only interested in 2 of the figures. It's not worth the price of the entire non-attendee package just to get the 2 I actually want. I'll wait until the individual bots start hitting ebay after the show and if the price is reasonable, I'll snatch em' up then, otherwise I can do without them.
