Botcon.com has updated its website with an official radio ad airing in the Cincinnati area right now. The ad promotes the three day event mentioning attendees and goodies. What's most interesting about this ad is that it states that "The first 100 kids to arrive saturday get a free figure".
No details as to what figure this could be are given, but it is known that all Botcon 2008 Shattered Glass sets and the Richochet attendee figures are spoken for, so this could be a different figure altogether. Could it be a TF Animated figure? A TF Movie figure? Only time will tell.
Yours truly will be attending the customizing class tomorrow, so we will have detailed pictures of the process, and a first hand account, but information from those attending today's is that the FunPub Exclusive Nightbeat mold (Energon Hot Shot remolded head) is being used.
No word on color scheme additions, or other details yet.
Henkei (Classics) Astrotrain has been released in Japan. TakaraTomy has issued him in his grey and purple color scheme. Chrome grey and purple thrusters highlight the shuttle. Astrotrain comes with a manga booklet with a new edition featuring him.
Fatguy has updated his blog with new pics of his recently acquired Transcanning Bumblebee figure. Pics so BB in all modes including, Protoform, Robot and car modes. FatGuy says BB has great poseability, as does Transcanning OP previously mentioned here, and that Robot and Car modes look great.
You can view all the pics of Transcanning Bumblebee, and the full mini review by FatGuy here.

S250 has provided us with a link to the ACToys board featuring 25 plus pictures of Animated Blitzwing. The pictures show some of the Transformation process as well as a size comparison with other animated figures and even G1 Blitzwing. Of interest is two fan modes featuring a Gerwalk mode and a Getter Poseidon mode!
Sketches of Transformers the Movie (2007) Optimus Prime have appeared online with a trailer addition added. TFClub.com posted pics in which it appears that Optimus's alt mode would include a modified trailer that when in robot mode, would combine with his cab/body. Seibertron.com can neither confirm nor deny the validity of this sketch and whether or not this is merely fan art, or real concept art for Transformers the movie part 2.
