Brian Savage from Master Collector just sent the following message to either Botcon attendees or Transformers Collector's Club members:


I know that this is a question all attendees are asking...

Question: How will the souvenir sales work this year? I know these items are very limited and hard to get.

Answer: As in past years, there are two souvenir figure packs and a new display accessory. Each souvenir figure pack contains two figures. There will also be several different memorabilia items available.

All Primus, Protoform and Dealers (booth holders) will be able to purchase one set of each souvenir two pack starting Thursday night through Friday night (only one set each, Dealers limited to one set per booth). On Saturday morning any person with a badge will able to purchase a set of each two pack, while supplies last. This will be limited to one set per each time you go through the line. The sales will open at 8:30 am on Saturday but you can line up at anytime.

On Thursday and Friday, you must be wearing your badge to purchase these limited edition items. On Saturday, sales will be open to any General Admission attendees (provided there are any still available at General Admission entry time).

Thanks for your support. See you next week!

Transformers guru Simon Furman has updated his blog pages once again. The text below of June 20th and june 21st have been taken directly from his blog entries.

June 20th, 2007

A few items of possible interest concerning the (rapidly) upcoming Transformers movie. First, I’ll be reviewing the movie for Comics International (issue #203, on sale in July sometime). This is, of course, contingent on my actually seeing the movie, but the omens are good for a preview screening sometime this week. The review will go hand in hand with a feature I’ve already written for that selfsame issue of Comics International, concerning the movie itself and the evolution of Transformers in comics form (over the past twenty years or so). I’ll be publishing brief extracts from both review and feature here, in due course. Keep watching. Comics International is available from all good comic stores. Other stuff? Well, I’ve also (above and beyond the new comic stories) contributed some feature material for Titan’s new Transformers comic/magazine (click on the link below for a new promotional advertisement for the title). Issue #1 (on sale July 19th) features a profile on Optimus Prime and a head-to-head (battle profile) between Ratchet and Barricade. Issue #2 (on sale August 16th) features a Megatron profile and a Jazz/Blackout head-to-head. Oh, and if you like these, you should definitely check out the upcoming Transformers: The Movie Guide from Dorling Kindserley (yep, written by me). It features pretty much everything you need to know about the movie characters (robot and human), organizations (Sector 7, etc) and fixtures and fittings (Allspark and so on). It's out on July 4th.

June 21st, 2007

Madman, purveyors of Transformers DVDs and apparel down under, are set to release (on June 27) not only their Special Edition of the Transformers (animated) movie but also their Transformers The Complete Collection DVD boxset (featuring the entire G1 animated TV series on 17 discs in a special edition box). The latter release comes complete with an exclusive comic, featuring an all-new strip set between the end of Season 2 and the beginning of Transformers The Movie. Written by myself, with breathtaking art from Nick Roche, the comic harks back to both the original animated series (in style and content) and also the look and feel of the original Marvel UK comic (both Nick and I viewed it as something of a homage to that bygone age). Click on the thumbnail below for a sampler from the story. For more details of the Complete Collection and Animated Movie Special Edition, check out the Madman site here.

CanMag has taken some time out and interviewed the visual effects supervisor at Industrial Light & Magic for Michael Bay's Transformers Movie, Scott Farrar and talked about the Special Effects that went into the movie.

"It's actually physical pieces moving. This all is very complex. This toy [the original Optimus Prime action figure] has 51 pieces. Our Optimus Prime in the movie has 10,108. So what you're talking about, and all that has to be chained. Chained means it's all got to be hooked together so it all travels along together as it moves, whether it's an arm move or a body movement or a transformation. That means it's complex, yes, of course. There's a lot of firepower that has to be in the computers to have all that information travel on, not only the pieces but all the information. The paint, the detail, the colors, the dirt, all the things that are textured onto it".
