The GM Transformers Movie vehicles will be on display from June 22 - June 27, 2007 on Detroit’s new River Walk.

The cars, which Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Solstice, Hummer H2 and GMC Top Kick medium duty truck will take center stage at the Detroit International River Days presented by GM in collaboration with the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and The Parade Company.

GM's vehicles all star in this summer's action adventure, "Transformers(TM)," opening July 3, 2007. These stars will be on display at the first-ever, six day festival celebrating the decade-long effort to bring life and excitement to the riverfront and downtown Detroit.

"We are thrilled to have four of GM's most talked about vehicles from this summer's action blockbuster on the river front," said Dino Bernacchi, GM Marketing Alliances and Branded Entertainment. "River Days, being the largest Detroit festival, will give thousands the opportunity to experience these creative vehicles up close."

As some of you might remember from last year, I handed out quite a few free t-shirts at BotCon 2006. I made another limited batch of tshirts that I will be handing out for free to people who regularly visit our site. One of these days maybe I'll wise-up and start charging for these shirts but I really enjoy handing them out to the fans that I talk to at the conventions. I've only got about 50 shirts that I plan on handing out ... so make sure you find me on Wednesday or Thursday next week to get your hands on one. I'm hoping that I can get a bunch of us to wear the shirt to the movie's premiere next week. That might be a stipulation as to who receives a shirt. Hmm ... :grin:

Oh yeah ... almost forgot to give a big special thanks to my good friend and staff member Starscream who came up with this year's design, as well as the upcoming redesign (just in time for the site's 7 year anniversary next week). Whoops. I said it out loud. Thanks again Starscream! I really appreciate all of the hard work you put into the redesign and the new tshirt. Both look great!

Brian Savage from Master Collector just sent the following message to either Botcon attendees or Transformers Collector's Club members:


I know that this is a question all attendees are asking...

Question: How will the souvenir sales work this year? I know these items are very limited and hard to get.

Answer: As in past years, there are two souvenir figure packs and a new display accessory. Each souvenir figure pack contains two figures. There will also be several different memorabilia items available.

All Primus, Protoform and Dealers (booth holders) will be able to purchase one set of each souvenir two pack starting Thursday night through Friday night (only one set each, Dealers limited to one set per booth). On Saturday morning any person with a badge will able to purchase a set of each two pack, while supplies last. This will be limited to one set per each time you go through the line. The sales will open at 8:30 am on Saturday but you can line up at anytime.

On Thursday and Friday, you must be wearing your badge to purchase these limited edition items. On Saturday, sales will be open to any General Admission attendees (provided there are any still available at General Admission entry time).

Thanks for your support. See you next week!

Courtesy of comes the finalised movie poster for Transformers.

After a little more than a dozen different movie posters, comes the FINAL poster which will be on display in cinemas all over North America come July. The design for the poster is the same as the Taiwanese and UK posters - with the heads of Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron - only without the tagline "Their War, Our World" on the top, as well as the right release date (7-3-7) on the bottom as well as the PG-13 rating.

See the poster here.

Troll for $49.99 ($14 under MSRP) and a deluxe Paladin @ $24.99.

images of the long-awaited 5th set of figures from their Monsters line.
These won't be available at mass market stores and historically have sold
out quickly. This set features 6 different Christmas characters who have
taken a turn for the worse (with the exception of Mrs. Claus). Sets of 6
are $69.99 and they will be arriving this fall.

HALO 3 - MASTER CHIEF 12" FIGURE: Kotobukiya presents its first entry
into the world Halo 3 collectibles. This 12" kit is similar to their
highly popular Star Wars kits that require extemely simple assembly. We
have the Master Chief listed at $84.99 - $15 below MSRP.

its first 4 cases of limited edition Ultimate Galactic Hunt characters.

come packed in special gold style packaging and also feature gold
collector coins only found in the UGH sets. View the first 4 cases here:

GENERAL GRIEVOUS - KOTO STATUE: An intricate and highly detailed new
snap-together kit from Kotobukiya, Grievous has a relatively high MSRP of
$195 due to the level of detail of the kit. We have preorders listed at
$154.99. This kit fits together with the new Obi-Wan kit to form a fight
scene diorama and Grievous wields sabers in all 4 hands.
