The crew of the 2007 BotCon has submitted their latest newsletter, in which they answer some of the more frequently asked questions. The following has been taken directly from their newsletter.


"Hello _________!

I hope you are all enjoying the images of this year's outstanding BotCon figure set! I have gotten a ton of emails asking if you can order the set without attending. Also, I have gotten a lot of questions about when the cut-off is for ordering.

The first answer is YES you can order the set by downloading the Attendee Registration form from BotCon.com and choosing the Iacon (non-attending) package. The cut-off date is either when we run out or June 8, which ever comes first. After that date, we will sell any that are possibly left at the show. Late registration for non-pre-ordered sets is Friday morning (expect a line). We will also not be taking checks for attending sets after May 29th (credit cards or money orders only).

Now here is the most important news: 75% of the sets have been pre-sold, so if you are interested in obtaining one at the issue price, don't delay.

In addition, the classes and the Thursday tour are now sold out (based on the paperwork in house). All paperwork in house will be billed by next Wednesday. You will be notified in your confirmation letter in late May exactly what is confirmed for each guest. (You can check your billing statements next week to verify that the amounts equal what you requested.)

So what is still available? There are some boxed sets available, there are loose sets available, and there are movie tickets available.

If I don't have hotel reservations yet, what should I do?

We are pleased to announce our fourth hotel block for BotCon 2007 at

The Hilton Providence

Guests can call 800-221-3109 or 401-831-3900 right now to make reservations. A web link will be available in the next few days.

This final hotel room block won't last long so make your reservations now! The Hilton is one block from the Rhode Island Convention Center.

If you encounter any problems in arranging for lodging, please let us know and we will try to help you. Thanks for your support! This is going to be the greatest Botcon ever!

THE BATTLE FOR THE ALLSPARK IGNITES ONLINE WITH THE LAUNCH OF TRANSFORMERS: THE GAME WEBSITE

Santa Monica, CA – April 27, 2007 – It’s time to choose your side! The fight for earth is being waged online with the launch of The Battle for the AllSpark web game on the official TRANSFORMERS: The Game site from Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), under license from HPG, the licensing division of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE:HAS). Starting tonight fans can log on to http://www.transformersgame.com to get the latest news and information on the highly anticipated game, as well as sign up as an AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS character and join forces with a global team vying for prizes, exclusive access to game information and control over Earth.

Based on TRANSFORMERS, the upcoming live-action feature film due out on July 4th from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, TRANSFORMERS: The Game lets players choose to protect the Earth as AUTOBOTS or destroy it as DECEPTICONS. Playing as OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, MEGATRON, BARRICADE and other characters, gamers will experience the unstoppable power and massive scale of their favorite ROBOTS IN DISGUISE as they battle for Earth.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


HASBRO UNVEILS TRANSFORMERS TOYS THAT ARE ‘MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE’ FOR THIS SUMMER’S MUCH ANTICIPATED BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE

Toys created for the DreamWorks and Paramount live action TRANSFORMERS feature film that invades theatres nationwide on July 4, 2007



Pawtucket, RI (April 27, 2007) - The wait is over! On Friday morning, April 27, 2007, TRANSFORMERS fans will finally be able to check out the first wave of movie-based toys and action figures associated with this summer’s much-anticipated live-action blockbuster based on the legendary “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE”. Fans visiting www.transformers.com will have a chance to preview the movie versions of such favorite characters as OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SCORPONOK and BRAWL.

Beyond seeing the debut of the first-wave of the movie-based action figures, the site will feature daily updates with new product unveils (including licensed items and retailer exclusives), links to the film’s promotional partners such as PepsiCo, and — in the near future — games, screensavers and wallpapers.

The toys and all TRANSFORMERS movie-based products will go on sale nationwide on Saturday, June 2, 2007.

Then one month later, the colossal battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS will invade our world when these aliens make Earth their final battleground in the first-ever live-action TRANSFORMERS movie which hits theaters nationwide on July 4, 2007. Produced by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, the film is poised to catapult the legendary characters and storyline -- which have captivated kids since they debuted more than 20 years ago -- even higher into the stratosphere of pop culture.

The movie, directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock, Bad Boys I and II) and executive produced by Stephen Spielberg, follows the epic feud between the AUTOBOTS (led by OPTIMUS PRIME) and the DECEPTICONS (led by MEGATRON) as they bring their battle to Earth. In their efforts to help the humans, the AUTOBOTS meet up with an unsuspecting teen (Shia LaBeouf, who is currently starring in Disturbia,, and has also starred in Holes and Evens Stevens) who finds himself in the middle of an intergalactic war being fought on our planet. The movie also stars Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas), Tyrese Gibson (Annapolis, 2 Fast 2 Furious), Megan Fox (Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen), John Turturro and Jon Voight.

For the past couple of weeks, eager fans have been having a difficult time trying to purchase Megatron. The problem all started when the figure was announced as a Japan exclusive and has snowballed from there.

Modified orange gun barrels; online retail shortages; and inflated prices have only been the beginning.

Now, to make matters worse- eBay has pulled the plug on all MP Megatron auctions. It is unclear if this is a permit decision. eBay has not made an public comment about the matter. However, looking at eBay's rules it looks rather grim that eager Transformers Fans will get the Masterpiece that they have been begging for.

eBay Rules for Toy Guns
BB Guns, Replicas, Blank Guns and Imitation Guns
Prohibited

BB guns, air guns, black powder guns or muzzle-loader guns

Listings that use the term “BB gun” in the item title or description of any listing for an airsoft or replica gun.

Permitted

Paintball guns, "airsoft" guns*, pellet guns, replica, "look-alike," and imitation firearms under certain circumstances. These items:

Must have clear markings permanently affixed to them (commonly blaze orange markings on the barrel or a blaze orange plug inserted into the barrel)

Must not be readily convertible to shoot a lethal projectile

Must be located in the U.S. and the seller must be located in the U.S.

These rules apply to all items designed to look like firearms, including replicas/imitation guns of any age, as well as toy and cap guns.

Note: Most states require that purchasers of airsoft guns be 18 years of age or older.


Please note that any photos in a listing (including stock photos) must also abide by our Firearms, Weapons and Knives policy. If a prohibited item is included in a photograph for a non-prohibited item, the listing may be ended.
