The Transformers Collectors' Club sent out an email update for BotCon 2016. As was mentioned earlier, Scott McNeil is no longer attending but in his place Gregg Berger (G1 Grimlock, Long Haul and Skyfire) will be attending and participating in the script reading with Judd Nelson, David Kaye and Venus Terzo. Also registration will close on March 21 and the update gives a hint concerning the future of the Transformers Collectors' Club. You can read their entire update below.

Hello Members!

We have some exciting news! On Friday afternoon, BotCon registered attendees will be treated to a script reading panel starring Judd Nelson, David Kaye, Venus Terzo, and Gregg Berger! To see this you must be a registered attendee, so make sure you have signed up for your Primus, Golden Ticket Primus, MiniCon or Protoform package. Also, for those who have already registered, if you have not yet added your Judd Nelson VIP Pass to your existing package you can do that today! Visit BotCon for the details and then if you need to register, add the VIP pass or do both, you can do that here.

As you can tell from the above paragraph, there has been a guest change. Unfortunately due to personal reasons, Scott McNeil had to cancel. However, Gregg Berger will now be coming! We will all miss Scott, but we are very excited about seeing our old friend Gregg in a few short weeks.

Registration will close on March 21st so there is not much time left to register. Currently there are only 30% of the Primus packages, 8% of the GT packages and 19% of the Iacon (non-attending) packages, left.

Please note that March 16 is the last day you can join the Transformers Collectors Club. If you are interested in receiving the discounts for BotCon, the 2016 FREE Membership Incentive figure and/or purchasing the TFSS 5.0 (to be revealed in full at BotCon 2016) you will need to be an active member as of March 16. All memberships will end December 31, 2016. Hasbro looks forward to sharing new plans for the Collector’s Club with you in the future.

We appreciate your support over the last 12 years and wish the brand well in their new endeavors.

Soooo.....it looks like one of two things has happened. Either FunPub lost their license to the Collector's Club, or Hasbro just decided not to renew it, in order to run it themselves or license it to someone else. As for TFSS 5.0, my guess is that it had been planned before this decision, and it will be FunPub's swansong as operators of the Fan/Collector's Club. Whether it will come out late this year or finish next year is anyone's guess.

I'm still convinced that they're going to try to squeeze those in by the end of the year. Admittedly, they'll have to move pretty quickly after BotCon to make that happen.


There's a few reasons why that is unlikely:

1) They likely wouldn't be able to run a payment plan if they have to handle everything by the end of the year. And asking full payment would be too much for those on the 4.0 payment plan.

2) It'd be too close to the final 4.0 release. The first figure in a sub usually comes in the spring, it's hard to believe they'd have the resources to push out seven sub figures that fast.

3) If they were to do that then between two sets of sub figures, BotCon exclusives, the Membership figure, and store figures they'd be releasing more than two dozen figures in a year which would be exceptionally difficult for a company of Fun Pub's size to coordinate.

I think as long as they're getting people to sign up in 2016 and placing they're order with the factory they're being allowed to continue operating the sub. In reality this wouldn't be all that different from a store exclusive, just spread out over a year.

Also, a fiscal year is different from a regular year. FunPub's fiscal year could end in March or April, allowing time for all the shipments to be paid for FunPub's 2016 finances. However, FunPuh's licensing may have run out on the regular year. Finances are stupid that way.

Posted by WiseMan on March 11th, 2016 @ 9:21am CST
I asked a couple of questions once I got that e-mail from them. Here's what I asked and their reply:

Question 1: I just got the e-mail about March 16th being the last day that you can join the Transformers Club. My membership is set to expire at the beginning of September. What do I need to do to make sure that I get the TCC magazine issues that come out after September?

Answer: As far as I know we should have the magazines that come out after September available for purchase at our online store.

Question 2: Since the club is undergoing some kind of change, is there still a collected volume 6 planned?

Answer: I don’t know yet if we are going to have any more collected editions.

The second question makes me wonder about the timing of things. I asked about collected edition 6 in mid-December and their answer was that it was planned but they didn't have a date yet. A few months later and they're not so sure.

So if you want to be sure to get all of the TCC issues you would have to sign up by March 16th if your subscription ends any time after March 16th but still during 2016, otherwise you run the risk of trying to buy them through the store which might not even exist.

Fantastic.

This is unreal! We almost never hear about any con figures outside the boxed set before the con in an official capacity! First Transmetal 3 Megatron and now Terrorsaur! At this rate, there might not be that many surprises left.

As for that smirk, it is so smugly Starscreamish it's perfect!

Terrorsaur's face isn't great, but I can live with it.

Not that I expect to own the thing, it'll probably be too rare and too expensive on the secondary market.

So I'm guessing that the Beast Wars 20th Anniversary panel is just going to be a David Kaye and Venus Terzo Q&A. With maybe Aaron Archer too since he started working on the tail end of the toy line, Transmetal 2s. It's a shame half the BW guests had to drop out for one reason or another. Could they not have gotten any other BW guests? Blu Mankuma? Colin Murdock? David Sobolov? Lee Tockar? Jim Byrnes? Doug Parker? Or Pauline Newstone, if she's still alive. Seriously, I Googled her and two of the auto-completes are "Pauline Newstone dead" and "Pauline Newstone death" and I cannot find a conclusive answer. She seems to have disappeared of the face of the Earth. There's also another weird auto-complete which is "Pauline Newstone age". And I can't find her age or birth date anywhere either.

Edit: Ah. Didn't see the descriptions. So it is just David and Venus.

I think at least some of the limitation is financial. It costs more money to fly guests to non-California locations, so non-CA BotCons have had fewer guests.

The idea stings us all. For all its problems, BotCon has been a fun experience that will truly be missed if it does leave us.

There will be a number of artists attending BotCon 2016, as you might remember from the Artist Alley announcement a while back. One of these is Matt Frank, who will be representing his Beast Wars love in not one but two original pieces of art - you can see them below in their finished (Meagalligator vs Battimus Prime) and an exclusive tribute to Primals, still in progress!

Another artist taking part at BotCon is the supercolourist Josh Perez, who also provided the colours for Casey Coller's Hot Rod/Judd Nelson exclusive print as seen here - and Josh is full of new prints, guest by guest or just in celebration of the Beast Wars Anniversary, which you can find at his page, and a sample below!

Another Josh, another colourist-with-artist, Josh Burcham is bringing his Beast Wars game to BotCon 2016 as well, with the wonderful print you can see below featuring the main cast for the animated series! Also included is a potential print idea of Nova Prime being all smug and ominous, check it out below.

Our very own Seibertronian Brandy Dixon (aka bdixonarts), regularly featured in the Creative Round-Up, is also part of the BotCon 2016 Artist Alley, and will be bringing some wonderful Rainmaker art from Damon Batt and Berious, and a new Gregg Berger piece with Batt - check out her colour work below!
