The time has come that many have been waiting patiently for. Registration is now live for attending packages. Non attending packages go live sometime next week. You can Register at the BotCon 2012 website.
During the registration process, you may notice that all six Boxset figures are pictured. This confirms that Metal Hawk is made from Generations Thunderwing with a new head and Evil Ultra Magnus from RTS Optimus Prime. BotCon tweeted that we will get to see clearer pictures of Metal Hawk later tonight. Below is pictures of all figures in alt mode and robot mode.
As you can see, the rumors that were posted here continue to be accurate. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your BotCon 2012 news.
So far BotCon has revealed four of the six figures in this year's convention exclusive boxset: Gigatron (Overlord), Evil Tracks, Heroic Soundwave, and now Heroic Treadshot. That leaves two more reveals, Evil Ultra Magnus and Metalhawk. According to the BotCon twitter feed Metalhawk will also feature a new head sculpt and Evil Ultra Magnus also has a surprise is store for us.
Botcon has confirmed via twitter what many have hoped for since seeing the teaser art for this figure. There will be a headband available for sale in the club store at Botcon. They go on to say that there was no way to mold the headband onto the head to do it justice. Also confirmed via twitter that there have been tweaks to the head mold so Soundwave can look straight ahead. Please enjoy the pics mirrored below or at the Botcon 2012 website.
Released on the Official BotCon website today is the 2nd figure reveal for BotCon 2012, in Dallas TX. This Shattered Glass Autobot is Tracks and bears a striking likeness to Road Rage. Four more figures are to be revealed in the BotCon 2012 Box set "Invasion". The images are mirrored below or head over to the Official Botcon 2012 website.
This figure, as several have speculated, also serves as homage to Road Rage, an eHobby release of the G1 Tracks figure in Diaclone colours; known for her - yes her - friendliness in robot mode, but extreme anger and recklesness while in vehicle mode. Perhaps SG Tracks will have the same personality? Time will tell.
Starscream, or Grimlock rather, has revealed the first figure in the exclusive 2012 BotCon "Invasion" boxset! Check out the video embedded below to get your first look at Gigatron, who is a repaint of ROTF Voyager Bludgeon with brand new head sculpt. A mold chosen to reference Overlord's Gigatank component.
Jesse Wittenrich has updated his deviantART account with both pieces of BotCon 2012 promotional art that we've seen so far, the shadowy Shattered Glass Evil Ultra Magnus teaser and the full color version that also features Shattered Glass Heroic Soundwave. Check out the nice clear versions of the art below.
Fans of the 1986 Transformers Movie will be getting a little treat in the New Year. According to the Transformers Collectors Club, issue #43 of the TCC Magazine which kicks off the 2012 club comic story "A Flash Forward" will include a four page intro which fits into the 1986 Transformers Movie. The new scene is written by G1 Story Editor Flint Dille with art by Dan Khanna.
TFCC just sent out the following update regarding the 2012 BotCon hotel reservations:
To all BotCon attendees who are holding current reservations: There was a glitch in the hotel's reservation system as it was supposed to be taking one night's deposit when your made your reservation.
Per our contract with the hotel, they need to take this deposit by charging everyone's credit card for the first night's room and tax.
In order not to impact anyone's Christmas shopping, I have asked them to hold off making the charge until January 3, 2012.
In addition, this deposit will be refundable until April 9, 2012. If you cancel after April 9, 2012 your deposit will NOT be refunded.
If you are holding any rooms "in case someone needs them" we ask you to either turn the reservation over to another party, or to release them by January 2, 2012, as we still have other attendees who need to make room reservations. Again, all rooms being held will have a one night's deposit charged on January 3, 2012.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Having trouble getting your room booked for BotCon 2012? You're in luck, an additional block has been added. BotCon sent out the update below:
Due to the high volume of attendees, we have added an additional block in the hotel for those attending BotCon 2012 in Dallas Texas. Please make your reservations now at BotCon.com. Follow the hotel link. If you did not get the $129 rate for each night, you need to update your reservation as that rate is still good from the Friday before to the Monday after BotCon!
SEE YOU THERE!
