I love that this guy's first post is to ask about a typo. Welcome to Seibertron! Botcon is still in June. :D

Fellow Seibertronian and podcaster xRotorstormx has been keeping her optics on BotCon 2015 updates - and has notified us the Facebook update from BotCon HQ, concerning the Saturday evening festivities, which are now to include the Hall of Fame announcements along with the Awards Dinner and Auction. Read on below for more, and head here to register until 5pm Central today!

Also included below is an email from the organisers, concerning the Welker and Non-Attending packages, attempting to smooth out some further wrinkles in the online system.

We are excited to announce that at the BotCon 2015 Saturday Night Awards Dinner and Auction, the Transformers 2015 Hall of Fame induction ceremony will also be included in the nights festivities. Fans at BotCon will be first to see which character, combiner and musical act will be added to the Transformers Hall of Fame. And as a VERY special treat, Hasbro will also be inducting a human to the Hall of Fame for 2015. This legendary actor has been part of the Transformers brand since the very start. You will NOT want to miss this event! To register for BotCon 2015, please be sure to do that here: http://www.botcon.com/BotCon2015/bc15register.cfm


Today is the last day for BotCon registration for ATTENDING packages.

Registration closes at 5 pm Central Time.

If you need an ATTENDING package and you are still getting non-member pricing (limited number of accounts), go ahead and process your package and send us an email so we know to process a credit. The credits won't be processed until next week.

Some of our NON-ATTENDING members are also having an issue getting the member pricing. For you, after we close ATTENDING registration today, we will move the NON-ATTENDING packages to the club store. If you are getting non-member pricing and need a NON-ATTENDING package, check the Club store tomorrow and you can order the NON-ATTENDING sets there.

PLEASE note that the store has no way to limit the loose sets to a 1:1 (must purchase box set to get loose set), but every order will be reviewed by admin for compliance.

All remaining T-shirts, assembled unpainted class figures and hats will go to the show. If there are any left, we will put them in the store after BotCon.

Thank you for all of your support and patience as we have worked through these issues.

See you in St. Charles!

GEE, I wonder WHO the human inductee could be?!!

You know, I bet it's Michael Bell. A surprise, unannounced appearance from Michael Bell. That's why they got him to voice High Tide in Rescue Bots, so that he could make a comeback to the brand just in time to receive this honor. It all makes sense now.

Mmhmm, it's totally Michael Bell. I can't think of anyone else who'd possibly receive such an honor at the event. I wonder if Frank Welker would get to shake Bell's hand as he heads up to the stage.

In fact, Welker should host the event. They should totally have Frank Welker host the Hall of Fame event, just so he can personally hand Michael Bell the Hall of Fame trophy once Bell makes his surprise, unannounced appearance and comes up onto stage to give his victory speech. Wouldn't that be a sight to behold.

I mean, why else would they go to such trouble to get Frank Welker to come to this year's BotCon? Surely it's so that Frank Welker could host the Hall of Fame event and present the secretly-invited Michael Bell with a Hall of Fame trophy. It will truly be a moment of beauty and emotion.

*smacks chest* Gets me right here just thinking of it. *wipes tear from his eye*

If you are still in need of a room for BotCon this year, you might still have some luck. BotCon tweeted that the convention hotel which is the Pheasant Run Resort has added a limited number of room nights. Hurry up to book your room and remember that registration ends today at 5 pm Central time.

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 ;)
