As reported earlier on Seibertron, the Dutch/Belgian Transformers convention that was known as Transformations, was asked earlier this month to change their name by Hasbro US. To determine the new name a competition was created. The new name is B.O.T.S.

The following has been taken directly from their website and translated into English.

"The name for the Transformers Convention is known: B.O.T.S.

We have in one week's time received more that 150 suggestions! The team of the convention have put together a pre-selection last week and presented this to Hasbro The Netherlands and Hasbro USA. After deliberation the name B.O.T.S. was determined as the winner.

We would like to congratulate Marco Reubzaet! His suggestion turned out to be the best one. He will receive free admittance to B.O.T.S. He will also be allowed inside before the doors open and will receive a T-shirt the logo of the convention.

We would like to thank everyone again who submitted their suggestion!!
".

Update:
The convention now has a new website where you can get all the information.

Have you gotten your hotel reservations for Botcon in yet? If not, you better start looking for a new place to stay. The 2nd Botcon Hotel, the Millenium Hotel is now sold out of their Botcon Block from the 25th-27th. This was originally reported by our own vulgar_wraith here. I proceeded to call the hotel myself and confirm this to be true.

The dutch/belgian Transformers convention, which will be held June 8th 2008 in Nieuwegein in the Netherlands, is no longer called TRANSFORMATIONS. According to their site, although they are fully backed by Hasbro in the Netherlands, Hasbro in the US have 'requested' that the event not be named Transformations or anything that resembles the Trademarked name of Transformers.

The crew of the event have turned this setback into a positive. To accommodate Hasbro's request, they have now opened a general competition, asking the fans to make up a new name for the convention. The competition is open for anyone able to attend the Benelux event. The rules are that that name Transformers or parts of that word may not appear in the name. You are allowed to make up as many names as you like. Entries must be submitted before Friday March 13th. The 10 best names will be presented to Hasbro NL, who will decide on which of these names will be chosen for the event. The winner will receive free behind the scenes access to the event and will receive a T-shirt with the new logo of the winning name.

More Botcon Mold Rumors...

Please ignore this if you do not want to possibly be spoiled...continue on at your own risk.






'Darthconvoy', a source that posts on another site --A source who also just happens to have had CORRECTLY predicted all the molds, and color styles for the 5 piece boxed set for Botcon 2008-- reports that the two molds that will be in the other add-on set are...

Toy Rumor 1 with grey and green color.

Toy Rumor 2 with remolded head.

Are these the actual toys? What characters could they be? Check out the galleries of these toys in their original forms by clicking above!

And in case you forgot, the other rumored add-on set is none other than CLASSICs Hot Rod with black paint job, and 'evil' mirrorverse goatee, and Energon Megatron, in heroic shades of blue, black and grey, possibly including a kinder, more compassionate remolded head.

Of course, it's a rumor until we see or hear more!

Join the already going thread here that gives a little more detail to the rumor...only a little.

New Update!

Pete@Botcon has stated on the club forums that this year's set is balanced as far as numbers are concerned with 7 Autobots and 7 Decepticons. So keep that in mind while speculating who these new characters are.

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
