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

PS. Our offices will be closed from April 21-April 29 for BotCon.

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?

After that date, you will need to come to Late Registration Friday morning at 9:30.

You can still come to the show under these options:

1) Primus Substitute which will include the 2005 BotCon Boxed SetDescent into Evil - at the reduced cost of $250 for Club members, $300 for non-members. (You will not receive the free attending figure.) Loose sets are also available for $130 for Club members and $165 for non-members.

2) 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.

4) General Admission Saturday or Sunday $10 (each day) for Adults and $5 for Children (4 and & under are free). Tickets are available at the door.

Thank you, once again, for your support! We look forward to seeing you in Cincinnati!

Unlike our earlier news story which linked through to an April Fools version of the Botcon 08 comic, this one is the real deal.

The Official Botcon website has updated with a 3 page preview of their "Timelines" comic that will be available at this years convention.

This years comic focuses on the "Shattered Glass" set of figurines, and ties into previous years Botcon Comics.

If you want to have a peek at the preview pages, check out page 1, page 2, and page 3.

Chinese Auction site, Taobao.com has two auctions right now for Minicons that are supposedly part of the Botcon '08 souvenir sets. Both figures are repaints from the Predator Attack Team, which makes sense, to go with previously revealed Razorclaw.

Here is what we believe to be Botcon '08 Rampage:

And what is most likely Botcon '08 Divebomb:

We will keep you posted when further information comes available.

Update! April Fool'd By The Club...Forgiveness Possible.
Don Figueroa is to be 'real' artist for convention comic, making a brief return for the club, and the 3 page preview should still be happening on Thursday. End Update

The Fooled--Yesterday, on the Collector's Club website, it was announced that a 3 page preview of the mirrorverse 'Shattered Glass' convention comic book would be available online this Thursday. Apparently, a prominent member of the club's own forums has been able to scoop up the preview early and present it for all to see.

For those that want the entire comic book and style to stay a surprise, please know that my opinon is that you will be pleased with the art style chosen and the first few pages represent what looks to be a quality story with very surprising guest stars galore! This is not your father's Transformers!!

For those willing to be a bit more spoiled check out Page 1, Page 2, and Page 3.

Thanks to Munkeefist for the detective work!--The Fooler
