No Debut for Jizaitoys - Powerglide

For all of you that have been waiting for the Jizaitoys release of Powerglide and Wheelie will need to wait a bit longer.

You may remember that Powerglide's debut was planned for the February 24th Winter Wonder Festival in Tokyo last week. In addition, the company was planning to re-release Wheelie as well. Unfortunately, Jizaitoys failed to appear at the festival because they got trapped in a snow storm at Hokkaido's airport. So both toys failed to make their appearance.

The owner of Jizaitoys, Emperor Leo, has informed me that they plan to sell Powerglide and Wheelie during the Summer Wonder Festival 2008. Unfortunately, they cannot sell their toys through any other venue (ie - the Internet, mail orders, etc). The reason is because Jizaitoys has received special copyright permission from TakaraTomy to sell their Transformers in limited quantities only during the Wonder Festivals in Japan. As disappointing as this may seem to fans - the good news is that TakaraTomy recognizes these toys as Transformers, which makes them more official. The next Wonder Festival has not been official announced yet, but will likely be held in July or August.

As reported earlier, Jizaitoys Transformers are garage kits that are painted, but need assembly. The toys are lauded for their G1 accurate characters and alt modes. Octane is still in the works, but there is no word yet if it will be ready in time for the next event.

Last Year's TFSource Stocking stuffer campaign gave us Santa Commander (Grimlock), a blue, G2 color scheme with a holiday cap.

Too late for the holiday season, but plenty early for the next, TFSource introduces smallest Reindeer Commander (G2 Green Grimlock repaint with removable antlers and red nose), and Bombardier Elf (G1 Red Swoop repaint with festive cap).

You can see the offer at TFSource here. They offer this to customers who have ordered $75 or more recently, or who are regular past customers.

The set cost is $35.95 and also includes the chance to get 1 of 10, random silver colored 'lucky draw' versions as well.

Details can be found at the link above. This set is scheduled to ship in late March.

Do you long to own the exclusive Generation One colored version of the movie Arcee figure? Do you dig looking at toy galleries, drooling and wishing you could own that figure? Need more pictures to convince the significant other that it's a toy worth having?

Nekoman has been able to solve these needs with a gallery that he found that features the Exclusive Wonderfest Arcee Generation 1 Repaint.

You can view the gallery by 'Fat Guy' here.

And you can join Nekoman, and others commenting on this exclusive repaint in this thread.

With all the visual evidence you need to convince you, all you need to do now is come up with the scratch to buy her. Or try to ignore her...

The free Botcon attendance figure (with purchase of Primus package) has been announced, and it is none other than a repaint of the Convention set's Shattered Jazz in red and white, called Ricochet!

You can see the Botcon site for more information about the convention and the other set figures that have been revealed here.

This is an unprecedented move by the club, but they want folks who will not be able to purchase this year's collector's set to be able to see what free figure they will be getting if they choose one of the other options available.

The Botcon set is being discussed here.

Join in the conversation about the free figure here




If you missed what the new options are for people, you can see the story where they were reported yesterday here!

Alternatives revealed for late BotCon Primus Package registrations.

We have received another update on the status of the BotCon Primus Package. As was confirmed earlier it is indeed sold out. Below you can read what alternatives will be provided for people who didn't get their registration in on time.

This is going out to all members. If you have received a confirmation email concerning your registration, this notice does not apply to you.

The demand for this year's BotCon figure sets (both boxed and loose) has been unprecedented… and they are now officially SOLD OUT. Since manufacturing of the sets has already been completed, we are not able to obtain additional quantities.

In order to accommodate those who are still planning to attend, we are providing you with two new options:

1) You can still come as a Primus Package holder and we will substitute a 2005 BotCon Boxed Set
Descent into Evil (click here to view) - at the reduced cost of $250 for Club members, $300 for non-members - and in addition, you will receive this year's free attending figure. Loose sets are also available for $130 for Club members and $165 for non-members.

So that you can see what you will be getting this year, we have decided to do something we have never done before...we are going to unveil the free attending figure this Friday! This is the first time we have shown the free attending figure before the start of BotCon!

2) We are creating a new attending package designed for this year only!
The Energon Package includes admission to all events (just like the Primus Package, including the Casino Night Awards Dinner) a convention badge, pin and comic/program (no toys). The Energon Package is $180 for Club members, $230 for non-members.

If you have sent in a registration since February 14, we will be emailing or calling you to find out which package you want to switch to.

Attached you will find the current registration form with the new options.

Thank you, once again, for your support! We look forward to seeing you in Cincinnati!

Brian

PS. For those of you who have already registered, confirmation letters will be going in the mail this week.

If you still need a hotel, The Millennium Hotel - 800-876-2100 or 513-352-2100

Counterpunch has been doing some digging into this rumor. He says...

"Er, hate to break it here like this...
I spoke to the Fun Pub reps this morning.
Primus Packages are indeed SOLD OUT. Gone.

There is supposedly an update coming at the end of the week to provide, 'Alternative Options'. I got no explaination to what that means, but the response was in answer to my question of 'Will there be more sets available?'


This is an update to yesterday's rumor, and seeming confirmation because it matches the information there as well. It will be interesting to see what options the club will come up with. Perhaps more will be made, and will be shipped at a later date?

You can join in the discussion already occuring here, and if you plan on attending and want to know what the options will be, check back at the end of the week, when the Botcon website should be updated officially!
