We're less than two months away until the general public receives 2010 Botcon Exclusive Autobot Spark. Of course with us Transformers toy collectors, two months is sometimes too long. With that in mind, we'd like to share a custom Botcon Autobot Spark. HK-TF member adun has acquired the figure through other means. He's gone to town with it in terms of Spark's weaponry, arming the figure with weapons more fit for an Autobot Leader. Not only that, but adun has also made the figure more Generation Two accurate, replacing the figure with a brand new head. Check out the custom below!

Fun Publications has issued some updates regarding BotCon and Dion. In short, online registration is coming soon, non-attending package registration will be delayed, the Swan and Dolphin are sold out, and Dion is delayed a few more weeks.

Read the update in full below:

Fun Publications wrote:
Here are a couple of updates:

1. We are working very hard on the registration system. As you can see from the test site we are very close, however, we found some bugs thanks to your testing, that must be corrected before we go live.

This is not a promise, but we are shooting for the first of next week.

I didn't want you worrying about it all weekend.

Here is how it is going to work. Because of the proximity of the registration timeline to the show, to ensure that everyone who has travel plans can get the package of their choice, we will only put up the attending packages (including classes and tours) when the system goes live. Approximately a week later, we will put up the non-attending package. The printed form will not go online until the non-attending package goes online.

In the meantime, please read all of the FAQs and the brochure (information tab) at BotCon.com before you try to register.

2. Due to the overwhelming number of containers trying to get to the US from China, Dion has been bumped off of two ships already. The figures will get on a ship next week which means they will arrive in about 5 weeks and we plan to ship them to you before BotCon. We have been told there are thousands of containers waiting for ships with availability to be transported to the US. The ships were taken out of service during the economic downturn and they have have not all been reactivated. Have you noticed that there are not many new things in the stores lately? This is why.

3. The Swan and Dolphin hotels are now sold out and we are working on a 3rd property. We will let you know when that is arranged.

Thanks to all of you who helped test the registration system and thanks for your patience and understanding.

Fourth Nominee Of Fan's Choice Finalists For Transformers Hall Of Fame - Shockwave

Today Hasbro Inc has revealed the 4th nominee for Fan’s Choice finalists for TRANSFORMERS HALL OF FAME. Together with Soundwave, he is another Megatron loyalist - Shockwave.

Check out Hasbro description on this fan's choice:

"Fan’s choice nominee #4 is: SHOCKWAVE
“Clarity of thought is the key to deciding your actions.”

The cold and calculating mind of SHOCKWAVE makes most DECEPTICONS question and fear his true intensions. SHOCKWAVE has always secretly sought control over the DECEPTICONS, but believes all of CYBERTRON will benefit from his scientific and logical approach to rule. Perhaps as powerful as MEGATRON, SHOCKWAVE will loyally serve the DECEPTICON leader until the time inevitably comes when logic dictates that MEGATRON must be retired permanently. In the meantime, SHOCKWAVE uses his vast knowledge to plan military assaults on AUTOBOT forces and to perform gruesome experiments on other TRANSFORMERS. Perhaps his only weakness is letting his emotions get the better of him, leading to spontaneous and irrational actions.

You may remember when Decepticon Motormaster showed up at an Auto Show in Tennessee last fall. Well, it seems the folks behind the project are going to bring their lovingly recreated Kenworth K100E to BotCon this year.

Head on over to the site and check out June's calendar. Will BotCon feature them as an official guest, or will they be crashing through the gates (figuratively!) of the Swan and Dolphin resorts?

Hasbro has revealed the third Hall of Fame candidate today. Straight out of coolsville, melodiously voiced by Scatman Crothers, and a brilliant strategist in his own right, Autobot Jazz is the next nominee.

Hasbro wrote:Fan’s choice nominee #3 is: AUTOBOT JAZZ
"I do everything with style!”

Before OPTIMUS PRIME became leader of the AUTOBOTS, he was known as Orion Pax and AUTOBOT JAZZ was his closest friend. Respected by his fellow AUTOBOTS for always taking the most dangerous missions in the war against the DECEPTICONS, AUTOBOT JAZZ became one of the best lieutenants for OPTIMUS PRIME. Always selecting a fast and stylish alt mode that reflects his cool and competent demeanor, and having studied the ways of the Cyber-Ninja, AUTOBOT JAZZ always takes in the situation before making any decisions. Once on Earth, AUTOBOT JAZZ quickly became enthralled with its many different cultures. Fascinated by Earth’s music, AUTOBOT JAZZ seamlessly picked up human slang, which he often uses to relieve tension amongst the ranks.

New Botcon Figures! Sky-Byte and Gnaw / Sharkticon!

Counterpunch has found two VERY interesting auctions over at Taobao.com for two new Botcon 2010 figures.

Botcon Sky-Byte is the much assumed repaint of the Energon Sharkticon figure, however what was unexpected is a second use of the mold to become a homage to Gnaw and the Sharkticons!

This does raise an interesting question as to the make-up of this years attendee figures. Since it's well known that where there's one Sharkticon, there are usually several more; could this mean that there will be another army-building set similar to Botcon 2009's Sweeps?

Hasbro Inc has revealed the second nominee for the final slot of the Transformers Hall Of Fame.
He is the creator of Computron, always feels he is more capable than Optimus Prime to lead the Autobots and the undisputed leader of the Dinobots - Grimlock.

Check out the Hasbro article on Grimlock:
"Fan’s choice nominee #2 is: GRIMLOCK

“Me GRIMLOCK king!”

GRIMLOCK fought his way through the gladiatorial pits underneath Kaon to become one of the greatest warriors on CYBERTRON. Having joined the AUTOBOTS early on during the Great War, GRIMLOCK made it clear he never trusted OPTIMUS PRIME to properly lead the AUTOBOTS. Due to his shock and awe approach to combat, GRIMLOCK is not regarded as a great military leader. However, he has fought and survived through enough battles to earn top ranking position among the AUTOBOTS. Having struck out on his own, GRIMLOCK eventually found himself leader of the DINOBOTS, a special operations strike force unit that can power through most barricades and DECEPTICON strongholds. During a battle with the DECEPTICON SCORPONOK, GRIMLOCK’s vocal processors were damaged, leading to his awkward and distinct way of speaking. If GRIMLOCK has a weakness, it is his larger than Prime ego and his lack of patience.
