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.

Pete, do you know when we could see the rest of the exclusives?

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.

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.

Its a homage to the title screen to Japans transformers animated. Hence the cartoonyness.

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.
