It's official TFA toys hit CINCINNATI!

A press release that you can find here at the Botcon site states that Walmart, K-Mart, and Toy R' Us in the Cincinatti area would be the stores that travelers to Botcon and local folks could find the early release of many Animated toys possibly including The Animated Battle Pack, Deluxe and Voyager size toys (Wave 1 only), and others.

Of course, the major emphasis of Botcon this year was the new ANIMATED cartoon, and the guests, logo, and now this news enforce that idea.

This is should indeed be good news for the Seibetron contingent that is building and building for the trip to Botcon. Hope to see you there, Animated toys in hand or not!

If you are not quite sold on the toys yet, check out Seibertron's galleries of the toys, and then perhaps pick yourself up some next week at your excursion to Botcon!

Courtesy of ACToys yet again, we receive photos of what is rumored to be one of the Botcon souvenir sets next week. This is the Armada Wheeljack mold repainted into what some believe may be a scorned Sideswipe joining the decent, and good Decepticons.

You can see the original ACToys post here.




Don't forget to chime in and be a part of the growing group of Seibertronians swarming Cincinnati next weekend by posting your replies here here.

As some of you might remember from the last couple of BotCons, I handed out a bunch of Seibertron.com t-shirts at BotCon 2006 and 2007. I made another limited batch of Seibertron.com tshirts that will be available for $10 a piece to people who regularly visit our website. There's about 75 shirts that I'm bringing with me so please make sure you find me on Thursday or Friday next week to get your hands on one.

This is the design that will be on this year's shirts:



If you received a shirt in 2006 or 2007, please bring it along to wear at the convention to show your Seibertron.com pride and to help other members of Seibertron.com find you at the convention.

If you are attending next week, please make sure you let Counterpunch know whether or not you are planning on attending the 3rd annual Seibertron.com meetup on Friday night (April 25th) next week at Botcon. Click here for more information.

You’ve heard the rumors, bought the toys, and have scheduled a vacation to Cincinnati Ohio of all places…

You’ve got some spending cash, a list of things to buy, and a mix tape of all Weird Al and Stan Bush music for the drive…

You’re going to BotCon and you think you’re SO special!

We agree.

That being the case, your not-so-humble friend Counterpunch and the rest of the far more well behaved Seibertron staff members will be hosting a meet and greet at 10pm on Friday the 25th.

We need to know who is interested, how many people you’ll be bringing along, and what you’re interested in doing that night. Initial options include going out into the City, drinks in one of the hotel lobbies, or gaming in one or several of the available hotel rooms (The room containing myself, Geekee-1, and Fender Bender being volunteered first of course…)

So, send me a PM. Get me information which will aide me in contacting you. The location for meet-up is yet to be determined, unless I know you’re interested we won’t bother looking. The one thing I need for sure is your email address for this. Phone numbers and messenger names are encouraged but not required.

Ok guys and gals, get ready to call in all those beers folks have offered to buy you over the past year, shower with something other than a bottle of Axe body spray, and forget anything mean I said to you over the past 5 years (I’m tired of introductions where I get punched in the face…).

This is BotCon. It’s Transformers Christmas, Chinese New Year, Hanukah, St. Patricks Day, and Senior Skip Day all rolled up into one.

I (we) look forward to meeting you all there!

We may have uncovered the first pictures of BotCon 2008's Heroic Megatron! Scroll far down the first page near the end to see Megatron in all his heroic glory.

Now, this is essentially a rumor at this point. The picture appears to be Photoshopped, so the final product is likely to be different.

The New York Comic Con, which takes place April 18th-20th, will have a exclusive Diamond Select Toys Thundercracker bust for sale!

Thundercracker Infiltrates New York Comic Con!

With this year’s New York Comic Con fast approaching, we’re excited to announce the latest Transformers exclusive bust only available at the show! Sold only at the Action Figure Xpress booth and limited to just 400 pieces, the Transformers Thundercracker bust captures the beginning of this Decepticon’s long and treacherous path.

One of Megatron’s fiercest warriors, Thundercracker was left for dead after the disastrous attack on Autobot City. Just like his former leader Megatron, Thundercracker was discovered by the powerful Unicron and reconfigured into a more powerful form in order to destroy the Autobots once and for all. While Megatron became Galvatron, Thundercracker becomes Scourge and begins to walk the dangerous line between supporting Galvatron’s madness and protecting the universe from the same…

This six-inch bust features a hyper-detailed sculpt created by Art Asylum as well as a hand-numbered base with matching box and Certificate of Authenticity. Make sure you act quick before these exclusive busts are history!


To see the image head on over to Diamond Select Toys.
