BotCon 2011 brings back Transformers Animated for one more adventure!

Fort Worth, TX - March 7th, 2011 - Fun Publications, Inc, licensee for Hasbro’s Official Transformers Collectors Convention "BotCon", is pleased to announce that BotCon 2011 will feature an ALL-NEW Transformers Animated story! Tying in to the theme of this years Animated Stunticon Convention set, this special one-shot story (dubbed Season 3.5) is written by Marty Isenberg, Story Editor for the critically acclaimed Transformers Animated cartoon series. The new 22 page story, with art provided by Marcelo Matere, will be featured in the pages of the annual Transformers: Timelines comic and will debut at BotCon 2011.

"We are very excited to be adding a new chapter to the Transformers Animated Universe" said Pete Sinclair, Managing Editor for Fun Publications. "Marty and Derrick have crafted an amazing cast of characters, and with Marcelo doing the comic art, fans of Animated will be excited to read this new adventure!"

The last time fans saw Optimus Prime and his crew from Animated, the Autobots had captured Megatron and had returned him and his minions to Cybertron. With Cybertronians finally able to relax, focus has turned from the fears of war back towards some of the recreational events their planet has to offer. And the next big thing has just rolled into town; The Motormaster and his traveling Stunt Convoy! But are these mysterious robots here to put on a show or are they planning a real demolition derby?
BotCon 2011 is being held in Pasadena, Ca from June 2nd - June 5th. Collectors and fans of all ages can register for the show this March when online registration begins. There are different registration packages available, the most popular being the Primus package, which includes an exclusive 5-piece convention set featuring toys of the Animated Stunticons! Each Primus package also comes with Transformers Timelines Issue 6 featuring the Transformers Animated "Season 3.5" story. Walk in Admission is also available for BotCon and the convention edition of the comic will be sold at the Transformers Collectors’ Club store and online after the show.

In a series of Tweets, @DerrickJWyatt posted an avant garde, brooding poem "written" by BotCon Dead End:

@DerrickJWyatt wrote:
AND NOW: A poem, by Dead End.

Dead End wrote:
I collapse to the oil stained floor of the garage, cracked and crumbled from the attack’s barrage
the throbbing tormenting boredom of this existence, spans unrelenting into infinite distance
painful longing to return to dust, we are all just food for rust.


The end.


Does this get you more excited for BotCon 2011? Will we see more characterization of the other four members of the Stunticons?

Still looking for a hotel for BotCon 2011 in Pasadena? According to this email from Fun Publication's Brian Savage, they have enlarged the latest hotel block to accommodate the demand:

Brian Savage wrote:
In case you still need a room for BotCon 2011 we have added a 3rd hotel to our blocks. Go to BotCon.com to make your reservation now! We had to enlarge that block today to make sure everyone can get a hotel room that needs one.

Registration is still not available as we are working out some last minute venue issues for part of the show. We will send out an email to all past BotCon attendees when registration goes live and then one to the club membership, so if you get two, we just want to make sure we got you covered.

I can tell you this - we will not be offering a first 100 pin this year. Instead we will offer a first day of registration pin. So, if you register in the first 24 hours after registration goes live, you will receive this special first day of registration cloisonne pin!

Thanks for your patience and support.

Brian


You can cheer or lament the loss of the "First 100" pin in our forums, and stick with Seibertron.com for all the latest BotCon news!

The official Botcon page has been updated with vehicle mode and robot mode images of Animated Stunticon Motormaster. As was speculated, this figure is a repaint of the Animated Voyager Optimus Prime figure with a new headsculpt. The figure is painted black, purple and very light purplish grey color very similar to his G1 counterpart. His head is very blocky and square. Also an homage to the G1 figure whose head was surrounded by his trailer. We now have seen all figures in the box set for Botcon 2011. Post your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums!

Rumor: list of possible remaining BotCon 2011 exclusives

For the past few weeks, the BotCon exclusives have been leaked one-by-one over the past month ... Transformers Animated Stunticons Dead End, Breakdown, Drag Strip, and Wildrider. A highly possible list of unannounced BotCon exclusives has been circulating the Internet and word-of-mouth for a few weeks now. I've heard the same information from multiple sources from around the globe. This marks the 4th time I've heard this list but I'm still considering all of this a huge rumor until we hear officially from BotCon. Make sure you keep checking back to find out if these figures are officially revealed from the BotCon folks at TransformersClub.com


My source also informed me that Toxitron would be this year's freebie, but considering the freebies in the past I would think this would be unlikely. Previous BotCons have had a scout or deluxe class sized figure as the freebie. Financially, it would most likely make more sense to continue with that tradition. It is also possible that Toxitron will be the custom class exclusive instead of the regular freebie, which would make a little more sense. Of course, it could be neither and just be one of the regular convention exclusives.

Is this list 100% accurate? Are there more? Less? Time will tell! Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Six Stunticons? Derrick J. Wyatt just updated his Twitter feed with another Botcon Stunticon tidbit.

@BotCon Technically there are SIX members in Motormaster's Stunt Convoy. I suppose if they are all truly Stunticons or not is debatable.


Earlier today we learned from the Botcon Twitter account that this week's reveal would be Wildrider, using the Animated Lockdown mold with a newly molded head! Who could this mysterious pseudo-Stunticon be, debate away in the Energon Pub!
