Glad im taking a break this year. Other than 40 ounces, Pasadena did nothing for me. The area the convention center is located is like a wannabe rodeo drive in beverly hills. Unless your into clothesshopping, theres nothing to do on foot. Why does botcon always go to 2nd teir cities ? Why not vegas, nyc, or miami ? TFcon is doing Chicago. Why cant botcon do that ? It would be nice if they would hold botcon in a city that has a nightlife And places to explore on foot. I had fun checking out the kennedy assassination area in dallas at botcon 2012. But other than that there wasnt anything to see and definitally no local spots where you can have a beer and meet chicks.

Isn't this post already outdated? These rooms are about 98% eaten up.

I myself don't mind Pasadena. Hollywood is a highway bus ride away, and a car rental (if one can afford it) would scratch the itch a dead hotel lobby or early bar closing can't cure. Sure, these locations, apart from Atlantis in Florida, have not been "top tier", but it could be worse -- it could be Cincinnati, OH.

The Official BotCon Twitter feed just posted a rather cryptic message and image, both of which we've mirrored below. This year's theme is Pirates vs. Knights, so just who is this organic called Squirm? Check him out below.

The BotCon 2014 is taking place in Pasadena on 19th-22nd June.

Have to say, the art is really nicely done. I'd say that bodes well for the comic and tech specs.

Squirm looks a bit like the Ben10 character Jury Rigg.

I'm calling it now...

Cannonball will be utilizing the Silas Breakdown mold with Squirm being the "organic" in place of Silas (slight remold).

Again, I would love to see recolors of the Cyberbeasts Dirgegun, Maxbee, Hellscream, and Thrust-or/-ol as his crew.

Would be a pretty nifty idea.

Tying in with the "Dread Pirate Roberts" theme... Genius!

If pirates and knights arent bad enough, now they have to throw organic characters in the mix. The one thing that made funpub comics cool was the lack of humans.

Cheap Shots had Muzzle, Quig, Lug, and Minerva, the first three being (former) binairy-bonded partners to Nightbeat, Siren and Hosehead. And Minerva appeared as a full-blown woman.

More importantly, who cares. Dreadful theme! At least the eBay scalpers won't get any of my monies this year...

I hope he's not human. Really really hope he's some inhuman creature. :-B

Is it just me, or is this "Squirm" guy share a striking resemblance to Jak during Jak 3?

Wow.....you guys are so childish complaining over Pirates and Knights when we have not even see them yet


I bet some of you will change your minds once you see them.

And the rest of you?

well...only oneself can change their own mind.

they are like sub factions! but even then that's just the theme we don't know what their group names (or individual names) are

I bet the pirates are Star Seekers.

I don't want to say the knights are those guys from IDW but I can't think of anything else.

The theme doesn't strike me and is a strange choice for the 30th anniversary but I agree. We haven't even seen the figures yet so there is no reason to start bashing it. We really know very little about the theme in general. Fun Pub can't make everyone happy and that's a fact. Some people will love it, some will hate it. I'm very curious to see how things progress. Who knows, this may be a great set

I personally have never been to Pasadena so either way I'm looking forward to it.

I love the sound of this theme! It's like Fun Pub is finally, at long last, going back to its roots in doing a set whose theme is true to the spirit of the very first set from 2005. No more of this "G1/G2/MW but new/different/backwards/etc." stuff that we've been getting since 2007. Just a simple concept born out of pure creative fun and imagination.

...even though it is still set in the same world as the 2009, 2010, and 2013 sets, and the 2010-2012 magazine storylines, have been set in: The Wings Universe. ;)

They are, yes. But NOT the same ones as those from the existing fiction, meaning that these ones ought to not have anything to do with Thundertron and such. ;)

Well, unless the Club creates a G1 Thundertron, that is, since this will be set in the Wings Universe (as I noted) instead of the Aligned continuity.

Huh.

So, a guy over at TFW got his TCC magazine issue recently and said it shows what Cannonball's toy looks like.

[spoiler]It's the Prime Robots in Disguise Deluxe Autobot Ratchet mold with a new Cannonball-esque headsculpt.[/spoiler]

He also mentioned that the accompanying text in the magazine contained [spoiler]a log written by Tornado of Squadron X, in which Tornado notes how Cannonball had offered to let them join his crew, but Squadron X "saw a striking difference."[/spoiler]
