Howdy folks! Just read through the Botcon comic, which continues the timelines saga that is being presented in the club magazine bi-monthly.

Written by Forrest Lee

Shown in the picture is the Alex Milne cover and the Target Exclusive Convention Pack

It reads a little out of place. Last club mag, we had the Autobots getting ready to go toe to toe with Devastator. For those that read the five page preview, you know that they have returned from it, and Rodimus (Hot Rod) is gravely injured.

S P O I L E R S...S Y N O P S I S...

____________________________________________________________

Here's some other information which would be considered spoiling:

Characters:

Bots: Prime, Bumblebee, Mirage, Rodimus, Magnus, Grimlock, Snarl, Swoop, Elita One, Springer, Huffer, Strongarm

Cons: Megatron, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Ramjet, Thrust, Dirge, Dreadwind, Weirdwolf, Soundwave, Ravage

Other: Bugbite

After a Devastator induced devastation of the Earth bound bots, Prime needs more help and Magnus, Springer, Elita One, Huffer, Swoop, Snarl and Strongarm show up to give it to him.

Meanwhile, Bugbite plots revenge against all Transformers, as he implants 'cerebro shell' based control devices in the seekers, and Starscream, and attempts a coup of Megatron, and all the Cons. His goal is the destruction of all Transformers, because he is from another time and place, where he is now the lone survivor.

Not for long though, as Megatron pounds him. The Autobots rescue Mirage (who used his invisibility to spy on the Cons, but then is captured and brought to Megatron by Bugbite and his forces).

The Autobots get out intact and wholly unharmed (except Mirage and Rodimus), but Decepticon casualties are really high, and the Autobots did nothing to them really, but free Mirage and jam and destroy the cerebro technology.

_____________________________________________________________

It's a good read, and uses some characters that have been gone for too long. Things like 'master partners are brought up as very appropriate plot points, and why there is no longer binary bonded partners to Weirdwolf, and Dreadwind.

Elita One is portrayed as a very capable warrior and spy, and there is nary an interaction between her and Optimus, for good or ill...

The BotCon 2007 Customizing class figure of Grimlock is to be repainted as a Transformer named Overkill, based off the original Decepticon cassette from 1987. GetterDragun notified Seibertron earlier this morning about this. GetterDragun attended the class earlier today. Hopefully we'll have pics soon.

Upon check in a the Westin, I received a room key featuring BumbleBee from the movie. The Room Key is sponsored by Target as well. When checking in make sure they know you are with the convention and you will receive one as well.

We came. We changed. We conquered. Or, at least I hope so.

Most of you seem very thrilled with the all new layout for Seibertron.com. This new design has been a work in progress since February. My good friend, staff member and fellow Chicagoan, Paul (aka Starscream), suggested to me that he could come up with a pretty kick ass design for the site (Paul is a professional graphic artist in the music industry). Four months later, after much discussion, instructions and plain out hard work on both of our behalves (probably around 100 hours total), we can now enjoy a slick, cool looking design just in time for ... Seibertron.com's 7 year anniversary on June 26th???

You thought I was going to say "... just in time for BotCon and the release of a little movie we've all been losing sleep over.", didn't you? When I heard last fall that BotCon was going to be moved to the week of June 24th, I was thrilled that they had planned an entire convention right around the time of Seibertron.com's 7 year anniversary, not to mention that many of us around the world would get to see the movie this week. This is the first time that I'll get to celebrate the site's anniversary with so many other Seibertronians. How very exciting indeed.

As I mentioned above, my buddy Paul had worked very hard on this design. He presented a very challenging design which challenged my programming and HTML layout and design skills immensely. I loved every frustrating moment of it. Paul accomplished exactly what I had hoped he would: break the mold, my friend, break the mold. Aside from aesthetics, Seibertron.com has more or less used the same front page design for almost 6 years. While the current design definitely has some resemblances, it is most definitely different than any of the designs I had been creating and/or "borrowing" since 2001. Paul, I owe you some beers at BotCon my friend.

I had originally sought out to write a very long winded message but I think I've pretty much said everything that needs to be said. BotCon is this week. Many of us get to see the movie this week. The new design launches on Seibertron.com. Today is the site's 7 year anniversary. If there was ever a time to celebrate being a fan of the legendary Transformers .... this is most certainly that week.

Thank you for all of your support guys. It's been an incredible past 7 years ... here's to the next 7!

Enjoy the moment my friends! This time is ours.

Your friendly neighborhood website slinging webmaster,
Ryan
