Non-Attendee registration is now open for those can't make it to BotCon this year. Click here to visit the BotCon 2014 page and get started.

Hello Everyone!

Non-Attending registration is now open. There is a limited number of non-attending sets available. When we run out, at a later date we will load the leftover attending sets (if available) into non-attending as we must keep those in stock for fans that want to travel to the event.

So, if you don't get a non-attending set now, we will let you know in the future when (if any) additional sets become available.

These sets will ship 3-4 weeks after the staff returns from BotCon. Also, note that the Priority Mail number of days listed in the shipping section is the service the Post Office offers and not a guarantee that the items will come in that number of days. All Priority Mail is a 2-5 day service and can actually take longer than that.

Please go to BotCon.com and click the registration button.

See you in Pasadena!

Brian

Got my order for the Iacon package in.
Didn't add anything else as the 4 bills was a big enough chunk in one shot for me.

Placed my order. Looking forward to having Scorponok.

And the comic, I suppose.


Shame about the distinct lack of bagged sets this year. I'd have bought one just for a spare Scorponok. >:oP

Good luck on the custom class figure. I was tempted to add that on, but decided to wait and see instead, in the event it's something unrelated to "Classics", such as a Shattered Glass character.

Probably not, the attendee window to get them was registration. They have have saved like, 5 for walk ups? :lol:

They always do save a decent amount of sets as unsold so they can do QC swaps. I've only had to swap something out once at the show but I was sure glad it wasn't an issue. That's one thing they do very well lately.

According to the Botcon Facebook page there is literally one Iacon package left. So if you're reading this and sleeping on it, well, uh, stop reading this.
