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!

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…

Hello!

This is going out to all members.

Many of you have been asking how the souvenir distribution will work at BotCon.

In order to allow the most people the opportunity to purchase this year's BotCon souvenirs, (no, I'm not announcing what they are) we are limiting each Primus, Substitute Primus, Energon, Dealer or Protoform badge holder to a limit of one set of each of the souvenir figures (per person). Mini-Con packages are not eligible to purchase these items on Thursday or Friday.

This limit will be in place for Thursday night and Friday. IF there are any left after 5:00 PM on Friday. We will make these available to any registered attendees (including Mini-Cons) starting at 8:30 am on Saturday. IF there are any left at 9:00 am, early bird general admission will be able to get in line and at 10 am regular general admission will be able to get in line. The limit on Saturday will also be one per person.

Please note that the souvenir figures are available from the Club Store at BotCon and you must have your badge from registration pick-up in order to purchase anything on Thursday or Friday.

Please do not email or call with questions concerning the figures, costs, or quantity as we cannot answer those questions. All will be revealed on Thursday night at the show.

See you at the show!

Evil Rodimus, 'stach and all, on display for us all to drool over here at http://actoys.net/bbs/read.php?fid=99&tid=257813. Actoys.net has provided fans with a full gallery of pictures for the upcoming Evil Hot Rod figure from the 2008 BotCon set.

Counterpunch addendum:
"Despite initial grumblings about the selection of characters and even the idea behind the decos...this year's set is shaping up to look quite nice (Read: will likely be expensive down the road...)."

Botcon in Cincinatti, Ohio is a mere 16 days away!

Counterpunch throws a little bone our way. He was able to find a link to an auction that has the robot mode image of the Botcon Exclusive 'Shattered Glass' Rodimus Collectible.

Via eBay (and Dead Metal), check it out here:

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2FTransformers-2008-B%20...%20dZViewItem%3C%2Fa%3E


CP also makes a bold statement...after market supplies of these toys might be very limited as interest just seems to be increasing, and increasing!

Thanks Counterpunch!

Apparently, someone on Taobao has an insider at the factory because here is yet another leaked photo of a 'rumored' Botcon exclusive.

This character is un-named, but uses the Armada Wheeljack mold and has it painted in G2 Drench colors. This color scheme was supposed to be available in an earlier two pack, but was canceled.

Check out the auction for the un-named exclusive here...
Un-named Exclusive Auction

And more to update, is an Ebay auction with Botcon Rodimus out of his package, still not robot mode, but a better look at the alt mode, nonetheless...
Botcon Rodimus Auction

It seems the closer we get to Botcon the more spoiled we are getting with early reveals, and pre-production finds in auctions.

Botcon is now only about 3 weeks away! Are there any surprises left to know?

Unlike our earlier news story which linked through to an April Fools version of the Botcon 08 comic, this one is the real deal.

The Official Botcon website has updated with a 3 page preview of their "Timelines" comic that will be available at this years convention.

This years comic focuses on the "Shattered Glass" set of figurines, and ties into previous years Botcon Comics.

If you want to have a peek at the preview pages, check out page 1, page 2, and page 3.
