Actually. No. We were able to release a few rooms we had for staff and licensing partners as we don't always need as many as we put aside.

People are also canceling their reservations, so actually yes.

Trend the past several years has been that you'll see the attendee "freebie" Wednesday after folks have picked up their packages, and the rest on Thursday when the club store opens.

Registration package pick up is on Thursday, so Wednesday shouldn't have figures shown.

Unless you meant from the Golden Ticket people.

BotCon 2015 Artist Alley - Wreck and Rule Josh Burcham Print

Postby Va'al » Wed Jun 10, 2015 4:59 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
While not an official announcement from BotCon 2015, fans of the IDW Transformers comics, comics art and people who follow the doings of the Transformers community might be interested in the new print by Josh Burcham (colourist and artist for IDW and FunPub), calling back to the Last Stand of the Wreckers! Check out the mirrored image below, thanks to a notification from fellow Seibertronian leokearon, and make sure to pop by Burcham's table at the event to pick one up.

I'll pass. Not keen on the goofy cartoon style for what was supposed to be a badass bunch of Autobots. Not my thing at all.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Its a homage to the title screen to Japans transformers animated. Hence the cartoonyness.
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

I am not really interested if it's a homage to the Japanese Animated cartoon; I still don't like it. It's like doing a picture of Grimlock, as a homage to Barnie the Dinosaur, and wondering why noone bought an expensive print of it.

The fail is strong in this print.

Also, have you seen the art in the comic itself? Kinda cartoony. So I think it's appropriate. It's ok for you to not like it. But I certainly don't have a problem with it and wouldn't call it a failure.

And BW Megatron is the Barney homage. Not Grimlock ;)

i actually think its pretty cool. even with the campy cartoon style, the Wreckers still look tough as nails. the print captures their personalities well, like how Rotorstorm is all up front with his demeanor, just like his fighting style, and Fisitron's jumpin in the air like a fanboy haha. i'd cop. but just because i'm a huge fan of the Wreckers. :WRECKERS:

Well that makes sense. I detest Animated's 'style'.

I dunno, drawn like this it doesn't look like they're capable of actually wrecking anything. Poor neutered wreckers. I miss the days where everything didn't get cutesified all to hell. Seen shelves full of those crappy Funko pop figures that have barely left any franchise alone...

While I agree, it's because people buy them. Like in droves. If they weren't so successful they wouldn't make them. If you have a problem, blame the insipid obsessive fans, not the companies.

Personal rant: I think the availability of geek culture is actually gonna kill it. I mean now this stuff is everywhere and starting to get obnoxious. I know people love content but as an older fan, remember when you'd seen something Star Wars and it was special? And that was a franchise that started the marketing machine. But now, it's over saturation. /end rant.

i can relate to the feelings of annoyance at how everything is becomin my little ponyish. i mean damn. Tranformers are basically a race of beings whose underlying purpose is to slaughter one another over energy to power themselves and their planet, which was drained of said energy due to stated slaughter of one another... and now they're all qt-fied while doin it. haha..

anyway, this is the Wreckers print i'd like to purchase. lifted from the deviantart page of the same artist as the above print.

ugh.. so freakin badass :WRECKERS:

Yeah, but I should say that I don't think the print that we were talking about was actually cute. It reminds me of the art style in the picture you submitted. Very Roche.

However, yeah, i think too much cute can derail the Point of the story.

To be fair Grimlock personality wise is probably a better fit for Barney. I don't think he was talking about Grimlock himself being an homage that would be impossible due to Grimlock's age. Though I am pretty sure Grimlock was Godzilla inspired. Given BWM's age it's possible that the makers of the show were having a little fun though it's probably a coincidence

I was joking cause they are both purple.

Also: Grimlock based on Godzilla? He looks pretty much like every drawing of a trex in the 80s. Now trypticon as Godzilla, yes.

I think some of you might be a bit confused about what in particular about this artwork is meant to be homaging the Japanese Animated intro. It's not the art style that's an Animated homage, but the layout of the picture. The way everyone's all lined up in heroic yet fun-loving poses standing atop the slanted text while set against a background of a partially-visible planet in space. THAT's the Animated homage.

The art style itself, however, is just Josh Burcham's own personal art style that he uses in his works, like these:

All of these are in the same art style as the Wrecker art, and is far from resembling the traditional look of Transformers Animated.
