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!

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!

The B.O.T.S. website also reports that the draw for the convention has been growing in recent weeks to not only include the Belgian fans (with a stand by the Belgian based Archonia), but the german fans as well. German Transformers website NTF will also be at hand to promote their site as well as sell Transformers merchandise, making this a truely international event.

Hello!

This is going out to all club members:

BotCon is coming in just a few short weeks! If you are planning to attend as a registered attendee or dealer, to get you into regular registration we must have your forms by 5pm on Thursday April 10 as we have to generate the dealer layout and badges for over 1,000 guests.

If you want to register after that date, you must come to late registration on Friday April 25 at 9:30 at the Duke Energy Center.

Also there are still a few rooms available at the Millennium Hotel. (info at BotCon.com)

Please let all the boards know about this cutoff date.

It is going to be a great show!

See you there!

Brian

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?
