Trying to get information on the next Botcon has been harder than trying to pull healthy teeth, but we finally get a little hint of what we can expect at the Transformers Club's official event.

According to the latest issue of the Transformers Club Magazine, Brian Savage tells us that three of the Botcon exclusive figures will have remolded heads. As to the who, what, where and when, no word has been mentioned as of yet. This number is one short of the total exclusive figures, which had four remolded heads in Shattered Glass Goldbug, Blurr, Megatron and Jazz/Richochet.

Complete details of the Club exclusive magazine are only available to recipients, and in order to receive it you gotta be a member. Sign up by visiting the TFCC Homepage and don't forget we have an exclusive, ongoing, question and answer thread dedicated to the TFCC here.

Seibertron.com has received information from an Anonymous Source that would indicate that to be the case. According to our source, Stan Bush has been booked for a convention in the southeast part of the country this summer. Also, according to our source, more details will be revealed next week regarding the dates and exact location of this event.

Edit: Our source has contacted us again to clarify some confusion. The event is NOT Botcon, it is a smaller convention. We apologize for the mix up and will update when more information about this event and Botcon become available.

Seibertron.com mdverde has posted an update regarding TICOBOT, the first Transformers Convention ever to be held in Costa Rica. After what we're being showed here, we can only imagine what to expect next year. Here's what was shared:

Ticobot was a huge success beyond all expectations.

Early in the morning on Saturday, November 1st, it was noted that this won’t be a normal weekend at the Children’s Museum. The crowd seemed eager to enter to the building where the first Transformers convention in Costa Rica will be held. A long queue of about 600 feet was formed out of the former stronghold and the people stream was constant during the day and even was increased during the Sunday.

At the main lounge of the Youth Complex of the Children’s Museum, named “Kaopakawe” (by its aboriginal name), several sponsors and mini-stores were located, with a lot of Transformers related products, among comics, mecha and anime stuff. In the back yard of the building, some real cars were shown, including a Shelby GT500 2008 that left with their mouths open to many people, by for its resemblance to the Camaro Bumblebee from the live action Movie. Also a classic Volskwagen Beetle was shown homage to G1 Bumblebee, and a Transformer-themed Nissan Sentra.

The display of thousands of figures from characters from all Transformers eras, from 1984 to 2008, talks, movie and cartoon projections, contests, trivias, video games, face painting for children, and even a Soundwave costume, gave a lot to talk about to attendants and the media, telling that the event was a total success, even exceeding the organizing group expectations.

The event closed with a little concert with the excellent Costa Rican band Tres16, who performed several songs from the Transformers cartoons and movies, and also from other 80s cartoons.

According to official numbers from the Children’s Museum, 7,000 people attended Ticobot 2008 during the weekend, breaking all assistance records. Long queues were made to enter the main attraction of the event, the figure display area.

Entire families came to enjoy the convention, even from the most remote cities of the country and they left very satisfied, asking why there wasn’t an event like that before, and when will be the next one.

Right now, the Ticobot group is working in the “Ticobot 2009” that will be held on July 2009, some weeks after the premiere of the film “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”. See you next year!

With many of the year's conventions now behind us, it is time to start planning for the next set to take place in 2009.

As reported by Seibertron's own Waaaaghlord, the first of Auto Assembly's two voice actor guests has been announced.
Our European fans will be joined at AA 2009 by none other than Ian James Corlett, the voice of Cheetor in the Beast Wars and Beast Machines.

Ian will be joining fans for the festivities for the whole weekend, and will partake in a live script reading session on Saturday night, and will also be giving a talk on one of the days (actual day to be decided).



For all those fans that grew up with the Beast Wars, this is a great oppurtunity to meet one of the Axalon's crew, and not an oppurtunity that should be passed up.
