A small update to the BotCon 2015 website shows the designs for the hat and t-shirt this year. The hat features the typical BotCon 2015 logo while the t-shirt shows Battletrap, Shattered Glass Stepper, Packrat and Megatron wanted deactivated or funtioning.

The club also sent out an email regarding Botcon registration saying it should go live tomorrow.

Hello Everyone!

Barring any final issues, we are doing the final touches tonight and should have registration live tomorrow. I'll send out an email when it is up.

See you in St. Charles!

Brian

Possible new BotCon 2015 Transformers based on Generations Waspinator

Fellow Seibertronian superstar Sabreblade has found this very odd listing on Taobao, a Chinese online shopping site. The listing is said to be for "IDW Transformers Classics Bumblebee Warriors Botcon2015 4 color" and features four different redecos of Generations Waspinator. The title does hint that these may be planned in conjunction to Botcon 2015, possibly as troop building toys. After all, we know a Waspinator mold (albeit not this one) is appearing in the latest Botcon comic page.

Transformers News: Possible new BotCon 2015 Transformers based on Generations Waspinator


Sabrblade had the following to say about these possible releases:

The leftmost one is based on Fox Kids Transmetal Waspinator (thus making him a dead ringer for Shattered Glass Waspinator).

The second-left one is based on the unreleased Universe (2003) "Halloween Horrorcon Value Pack" Waspinator.

The two on the right, however, have decos that aren't as obvious.


these Waspinators might all be Waruder mechs for the pilots, with the black paint on each of their backs supposedly representing cockpits.

The only counter I can see to this suggestion is that the Diaclone line didn't have any Waruder mech toys in any of these decos, but it's still possible that these could be a new kind of Waruder mech.

EDIT: Now the theory includes the suggestion of the red Waspy being based on this - http://www.robot-japan.com/gallery/item/warudaros-3.html


Also, a closer look at the four reveals that they're missing their robot mode heads (see the empty cavity behind each's beast mode head).

And stick around to discuss the events of the strip in our Energon Pub, or check out our Exclusive Galleries. You're always welcome to hang around at Seibertron.com!

Via fiction aficionado and Seibertronian Sabrblade, we have the second part of BotCon/FunPub's comic 'Collections' (first part was posted here), featuring Packrat (the Thief) and his encounter with Waspinator Thrustinator. You can read it mirrored below, along with some clarification from Pete Sinclair and creator Jesse Wittenrich, via fellow fansite The Allspark.

Pete Sinclair wrote:The 'Collections' one shot takes place at some point after the Beast Wars. We haven't even defined what Universe this is from. One thing that seems to be the case, as you all know, is Beast Wars exists in many different timelines. This may be another timeline that has similar traits to the G1 toon continuity, Wings continuity or whatever other ones that are floating out there and contains Beast Wars but also contains one of these little stories that are specific to THAT timeline.


Jesse Wittenrich wrote:Yup. And a significant amount of time after the Beast Wars as well. The fighting took place across the entire planet, spreading parts and pieces everywhere. Including the bottom of an ocean *looks at Depth Charge's fin and Rampage's claw*. Packrat has spent a LONG time on his collection; he's picked up everything, not just the pile we see in one panel.

Read on below to find out more about it, and head here to pose your own queries.

Vector Prime, one of our most venerable elders, answers some of your questions as a way to foster better understanding between Cybertronians and humans.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your no-longer-on-the-market host ScottyP, site owner and photographer extraordinaire Seibertron, Not-Optimus RodimusConvoy13, and the late (to the show) Jon3.0.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Jon 3.0 was saving Drift during our comics discussion


Episode #116 "Character Piece" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

On this episode we start out by catching up on some comic talk. The not-quite latest issue of More Than Meets The Eye kicks things off, as we take a rather long time to catch up on the dastardly(?) deeds of the DJD.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Not sure if the audio gives a reminder of who the Best Character is, so here's one.


After that, we catch up on the goings on with the rest of the crew in the fallout of Elegant Chaos. The feels run strong while we chat about the emotional "Ratchet" issue. Will we ever successfully say "goodbye" to this topic during the episode?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Off the page, but into your heart


We then move on to Combiner Wars Parts two and three, found (respectively) in the pages of Transformers #40 and Windblade #2. The ongoing war is so compelling, it may get glossed over with only the quickest of discussions - who will save us from the lack of discourse for these super fun issues?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
My money's on Lightbright


We then move onto Cartoons and discuss Robots In Disguise Episodes 6 & 7. Is the cast enjoying the show so far, or are we truly still in the "too early to tell" phase of the show?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Buy her now kids! Oh wait, you can't. We're so good at cross channel marketing.


The Robots in Disguise chat rolls on for a little while longer, when we take a look at some potential toy repaint color schemes.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Obligatory


The last toy in the Botcon 2015 boxed set has been revealed as the "Double Pretender" Oilmaster! "The Bounty Hunter" comes to us as a resurrection of a canceled late-G1 concept. Split opinions reign as we discuss whether or not this made some dreams come true.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Trukk AND Monkey!


With Botcon coming up soon, we then briefly turn our attention to the boxed set on the whole. What do you think of the set? Will we see you at the convention?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Maybe Axl was singing about Mach Kick all along


Next up, we'll answer a very fun question from Seibertronian lordME.gatron, who asks:

lordME.gatron wrote:Hey there guys I'm a long time listener, first time caller;

I started collecting a little over 5 years ago, I managed to buy more generations toys than g1. Would it be wise to continue collecting both g1 and generations or stick with either line. I like both lines but its becoming too pricy, any advice? :CON:


Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Choices, choices...


After that, it's time to wrap up with some quick Bragging Rights. Listen to us all live vicariously through one another's collective eclectic hauls!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
He's on a quest to save the show!


Hope you have fun with this one, we'll see you again in some indeterminate amount of time!

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.
