The Transformers Collector's Club has send out its latest news letter, regarding the appraoching BotCon 2005. The following is a direct quote of the news letter.

Hello ____________!

Today we have loaded online all of the pictures of the 2005 BotCon set, stop
by and check it out at botcon.com or transformersclub.com.

I have had a couple of questions:

1. The hotel is sold out, is there a alternate.

Yes, We have made arrangements for a block of rooms a the Hampton Inn Frisco
(about 1.5 blocks from the show). You can call their toll free number at
866-751-8400 or you can do it online at hamptoninn.com and use the code TRN.
When you call in tell them you are with BotCon or Transformers and they will
give you a very special rate.

2. The set looks great! Can I order one if I can't come to the show?

Yes. Just download the registration form at botcon.com and you want the Iacon
package (non-attending). Please remember that any non-attending packages
ordered before the show includes shipping. After the show (if there are any
left) we will put them in the online store at transformersclub.com/shop and the
shipping will be extra. Please note that for attending packages, we will stop
taking checks on Aug 29 (we have to have time for them to clear). After that
date, you must to use a credit card or cash. We also don't take checks at the
convention but there is an ATM in the lobby of the hotel.

3. How many sets are left?

Out of the 800 boxed sets there are just under 400 still available to be
pre-ordered. We are over half sold out. The loose sets are over 2/3 sold out
and you have to purchase a boxed set in order to get the loose set (one per
boxed set).

4. I understand that there will be some souviner figures at BotCon. How can I
get them?

Well, many times these items sell out at the show as we run a smaller quantity.
After the show, if there is anything left, we will put them online. We do limit
everyone on Thursday night so that each registered guest can have an opportunity
to purchse these items. The only way you can get them on Thursday night or
Friday is you must be a registered guest. If anything makes it until Saturday
morning, it will be available to the General Admission attendees.

5. Who are the special guests?

The first two guests will be announced on Monday.


Thanks for your support and we are looking forward to a great 2005 BotCon. I
hope you are as well.

Brian

I just received this email from the crew at Master Collector who is running BOTCON 2005. I thought I would share it with the rest of the fandom to keep the information wheel a turnin'!

Hello Ryan Yzquierdo!

Last week we sent out a mailing of over 6,000 BotCon brochures. We used the old BotCon list and the current membership list for this. So if you get two of these, don't worry. If one goes to an old address, don't worry we have not changed your address in the system. If you have already registered, don't worry.

We will start sending out confirmation letters next week.

I am still waiting on the guests to get back to me to confirm their attendance.

Oh, yes we have put the fist pictues up. Buzzclaw as you have never seen him before! Check it out at botcon.com

Please remember that the colors you see will be different than what the figure is in person as photo lighting and monitor colors vary over a wide range. The wings are red if that helps. Also some of these decos/colors may still change as this is a prototype.

We have ordered more Alternators for the store which SHOULD be here by the end of next week.

Thanks for your support,
Brian
