The first pieces of news from BotCon 2006 are already starting to get out. Back in July we reported stories about a brown Energon Divebomb repaint and a red Energon Divebomb repaint. Speculation was that the two would be available at BotCon 2006, but some people thought they would be named Airrazor and Terrorsaur. Well, those people could not have been more wrong. Allspark.com has posted their first gallery from BotCon 2006. The gallery reveals that the brown Divebomb is Buzzsaw and the red one is Lazerbeak! Also Waspinator's name is Darksyde Waspinator.

BotCon 2006TRANSFORMERS Fans Gather in Kentucky to Celebrate Their Love of 'MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE' Toys

PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 27, 2006--Thousands of TRANSFORMERS fans arriving this weekend in Lexington, Kentucky for the official convention of the TRANSFORMERS Collectors Club can meet the "voice" of OPTIMUS PRIME, trade action figures at more than 200 tables of TRANSFORMERS collectibles, and many will be welcomed by a 40-member college marching band playing the famed TRANSFORMERS theme song. And to top it off, they may also enter to win the opportunity to 'become' a TRANSFORMERS action figure!

Each year, TRANSFORMERS fans converge from all across the nation at a convention that celebrates the globally popular franchise that is 'MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE.' This year's event -- held at the Lexington Convention Center from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1 -- will be more exciting than ever as fans anticipate the launch of next summer's live-action TRANSFORMERS movie from DreamWorks and Paramount.

The University of Kentucky marching band will help kick off the convention by playing the iconic TRANSFORMERS theme song when the doors open at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 29 for a special preview for registered convention-goers. Pre-registered guests will also be invited to a special midnight screening on Friday night of the soon-to-be-released 20th anniversary edition DVD of the TRANSFORMERS animated movie. BotCon will then open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, with many activities that will appeal to the entire family, including drawing classes with TRANSFORMERS designers and panel discussions with Hasbro toy designers.

Peter Cullen, the voice of OPTIMUS PRIME, who is also in next year's anticipated blockbuster feature film, will be present on Saturday to sign autographs, meet fans and talk about his experiences as the leader of the AUTOBOTS. Additionally, BotCon will also provide an opportunity for fans to meet the actors behind the character voices of the animated series. Slated to attend are the actors who voiced TIGATRON, RHINOX, RATTRAP, WASPINATOR and AIR RAZOR from the BEAST WARS animated series, which is commemorating its 10th anniversary this year.

"Whether you are a life-long fan who grew up with the TRANSFORMERS animated series or are just discovering the world of 'ROBOTS IN DISGUISE', there's something at BotCon for you," said Brian Savage, Director of the TRANSFORMERS Collector Club. "For members of the collector club, the annual convention allows fans to gather together to talk about their hobby and trade, as well as sell or buy rare figures to enhance their collection."

As a special treat this year, attendees will be able to enter the BotCon TRANSFORMERS sweepstakes at the HASBRO booth for a chance to win a TRANSFORMERS action figure designed in their likeness! Visit www.Botcon.com to view the complete rules.

"Every year, we look forward to gathering with fellow TRANSFORMERS fans at BotCon who share our excitement of the TRANSFORMERS brand," said Greg Lombardo, TRANSFORMERS brand director. "This year, we're celebrating our history - with the 10th anniversary of the Beast Wars saga - while anticipating the future with the release of the live action feature film next summer."

BotCon, which will be held at the Lexington Convention Center: Bluegrass Ballroom (430 W. Vine St.) is open to the public on Saturday, September 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission will provide access to all activities for a single day: Adults, $9; Children, $5; Children under 4, free.

SEIBERTRON.com ... reporting for duty: WE'RE HERE!!!

Prof Smooth and I just arrived in Lexington, KY from Chicago, IL about 30 minutes ago. We're staying at the Quality Inn about 2 miles north of the Hyatt off Newtown Pike.

We're going to head to a restaurant or bar and get a nice cold drink after our 7.5 hour long car ride through a massive thunderstorm, construction and high winds that made people look like they're drunk because of all of the swerving.

If you've already arrived, please let us know so that we can possibly hook up tonight or tomorrow night. I'll be going to the Kentucky tour thing tomorrow to see the robotics at Toyota and I think a wine tasting bit. Pictures will be posted sometime tomorrow night of that part of this weekend's adventure.

I look forward to meeting up with other Seibertronians and Transformers fans.

BOTCON 2006 HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN FOR SEIBERTRON.COM!!! LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED MY FRIENDS!!!

The latest newsletter from the Transformers Collectors Club is now shipping. Some people have already received their copy. Beastbot X of TFW2005 has already received a copy and has posted some of the news in the letter. Here is what Beastbot X posted:

"In the newest issue of Master Collector, there's a short article on Astrotrain, as well as a drawing of Astrotrain and his partially-shadowed Minicons.

First-- the Minicon repaints that will be coming with Astrotrain are the GIANT PLANET TEAM. From the drawing, Longarm has been repainted orange and blue (or purple, it's hard to tell), Overcast has been repainted blue (or purple) and gold, and.. I can't really see much of Deepdive's coloration from the picture, other than some gray on his shoulders. It's not mentioned which Minicon is named which, except that the Comettor repaint in gray and blue/purple is named STARCATCHER. (A nice compromise between the suggested joke name "Cowcatcher" on the Club forums!) Also, it looks like Astrotrain is part of Cannonball's crew-- another suggestion from the Club forums made reality!

There will also be an as-yet-unannounced second club exclusive figure to be released at about the same time as Astrotrain this fall. China has been very slow getting back to MC about the pricing info and such, and they are sorry for the delay.

Also, when the Astrotrain figure is released this fall, an illustrated text story will accompany it.

(Also, in case you're wondering what else is in the MC newsletter, there's the usual IDW comic, IDW solications, and fanart page, as well as an article describing the Hasbro team's trip to the movie set, Part 4 of the "Roadmap to the TF Multiverse" series featuring Japanese comics, 2 Lil' Formers strips, a Mini Mayhem! strip,a Landquake bio, a bio for Anti-Blaze, Scythe, and Checkpoint, and a review on some past Japanese TF video games."
