Pete@BotCon has revealed some new information about both the First 100 pins and the registration process.
Pete@BotCon wrote:There will be a set amount of non-attending packages set aside for when that part of registration begins.
We are making an additional 50 "first 100 pins" for the non-attending packages. So now it is a first 150.
The price of the online registration will drop next year. Once the cost of the system has been covered we will charge a maintenance fee that will, again, be much less.
Another reason we are holding off on the printable forms is because there is no easy way to reconcile those forms with forms that are faxed. Online forms take priority when it comes to classes, tours, first 150 and so on.
The information can also be seen here at The Allspark.

Hasbro has revealed the fifth and final nominee for the Fan's Choice slot in the Transformers Hall of Fame: Beast Wars Dinobot!
Fan’s choice nominee #5 is: DINOBOT
"Let me be judged accordingly. The rest is silence.”
Once feared as a PREDACON, DINOBOT found himself stranded alongside MEGATRON in the distant past. There, his code of honor led him to make a choice between following MEGATRON or standing against him. Eventually, DINOBOT joined the heroic MAXIMALS and fought in the BEAST WARS over control of ENERGON, the fate of the human species and CYBERTRON itself. Having sacrificed his life in an honorable stance against the PREDACONS, DINOBOT was cloned by MEGATRON and reborn into Transmetal 2 DINOBOT. By splitting in half the spark in PREDACON RAMPAGE™, MEGATRON was able to control this clone and wield him as a weapon. With the destruction of RAMPAGE, Transmetal 2 DINOBOT’s spark became whole again, along with the consciousness of the warrior that once took hold of this new form and helped save the day.
We're less than two months away until the general public receives 2010 Botcon Exclusive Autobot Spark. Of course with us Transformers toy collectors, two months is sometimes too long. With that in mind, we'd like to share a custom Botcon Autobot Spark. HK-TF member adun has acquired the figure through other means. He's gone to town with it in terms of Spark's weaponry, arming the figure with weapons more fit for an Autobot Leader. Not only that, but adun has also made the figure more Generation Two accurate, replacing the figure with a brand new head. Check out the custom below!
If you have any customs, light or heavy, feel free to post them within the designated Transtopia boards!

Fun Publications has issued some updates regarding BotCon and Dion. In short, online registration is coming soon, non-attending package registration will be delayed, the Swan and Dolphin are sold out, and Dion is delayed a few more weeks.
Read the update in full below:

Here are a couple of updates:
1. We are working very hard on the registration system. As you can see from the test site we are very close, however, we found some bugs thanks to your testing, that must be corrected before we go live.
This is not a promise, but we are shooting for the first of next week.
I didn't want you worrying about it all weekend.
Here is how it is going to work. Because of the proximity of the registration timeline to the show, to ensure that everyone who has travel plans can get the package of their choice, we will only put up the attending packages (including classes and tours) when the system goes live. Approximately a week later, we will put up the non-attending package. The printed form will not go online until the non-attending package goes online.
In the meantime, please read all of the FAQs and the brochure (information tab) at BotCon.com before you try to register.
2. Due to the overwhelming number of containers trying to get to the US from China, Dion has been bumped off of two ships already. The figures will get on a ship next week which means they will arrive in about 5 weeks and we plan to ship them to you before BotCon. We have been told there are thousands of containers waiting for ships with availability to be transported to the US. The ships were taken out of service during the economic downturn and they have have not all been reactivated. Have you noticed that there are not many new things in the stores lately? This is why.
3. The Swan and Dolphin hotels are now sold out and we are working on a 3rd property. We will let you know when that is arranged.
Thanks to all of you who helped test the registration system and thanks for your patience and understanding.
Today Hasbro Inc has revealed the 4th nominee for Fan’s Choice finalists for TRANSFORMERS HALL OF FAME. Together with Soundwave, he is another Megatron loyalist - Shockwave.
Check out Hasbro description on this fan's choice:
"Fan’s choice nominee #4 is: SHOCKWAVE “Clarity of thought is the key to deciding your actions.”
The cold and calculating mind of SHOCKWAVE makes most DECEPTICONS question and fear his true intensions. SHOCKWAVE has always secretly sought control over the DECEPTICONS, but believes all of CYBERTRON will benefit from his scientific and logical approach to rule. Perhaps as powerful as MEGATRON, SHOCKWAVE will loyally serve the DECEPTICON leader until the time inevitably comes when logic dictates that MEGATRON must be retired permanently. In the meantime, SHOCKWAVE uses his vast knowledge to plan military assaults on AUTOBOT forces and to perform gruesome experiments on other TRANSFORMERS. Perhaps his only weakness is letting his emotions get the better of him, leading to spontaneous and irrational actions.
Hasbro has revealed the third Hall of Fame candidate today. Straight out of coolsville, melodiously voiced by Scatman Crothers, and a brilliant strategist in his own right, Autobot Jazz is the next nominee.
Hasbro wrote:Fan’s choice nominee #3 is: AUTOBOT JAZZ
"I do everything with style!”
Before OPTIMUS PRIME became leader of the AUTOBOTS, he was known as Orion Pax and AUTOBOT JAZZ was his closest friend. Respected by his fellow AUTOBOTS for always taking the most dangerous missions in the war against the DECEPTICONS, AUTOBOT JAZZ became one of the best lieutenants for OPTIMUS PRIME. Always selecting a fast and stylish alt mode that reflects his cool and competent demeanor, and having studied the ways of the Cyber-Ninja, AUTOBOT JAZZ always takes in the situation before making any decisions. Once on Earth, AUTOBOT JAZZ quickly became enthralled with its many different cultures. Fascinated by Earth’s music, AUTOBOT JAZZ seamlessly picked up human slang, which he often uses to relieve tension amongst the ranks.
This does raise an interesting question as to the make-up of this years attendee figures. Since it's well known that where there's one Sharkticon, there are usually several more; could this mean that there will be another army-building set similar to Botcon 2009's Sweeps?
Rest assured that Seibertron.com will keep all of you informed as we learn more!
