All these start times is going to make queueing up early confusing. Whatever.

What if someone arrives late (say, Friday night). Can they pick up their sets sometime Saturday of Sunday, or is it all completely closed at that point?

Walk-up Late Registration is on Friday morning at 9:30am.

Contact Fun Pub about your registration situation to see what can be done.

Right. I might be able to get there Friday night. Hence the unfortunate question. :-(

It seems general admission is $60 for Saturday, which might be the way to go.

Do they have a direct number to call? All they seem to have is an email.

Well, I got their "we're away for Botcon!" message. I guess no one is manning the office at all? They really are a small shop.

I guess an email query is my only recourse for now. Thanks, Sabr.

Sure thing, but, to be frank, with the schedule having been released previously, it's possible you might get a response containing something along the lines of "With the convention in just a couple days from now, you really should have settled this with us sooner."

Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury to plan these things that far ahead of time. The "at a drop of a hat" nature of my work really sucks.

As far as I know, late registration and package pick-up is one process. You register and get your badge/box set (if applicable) all at the same time. For souvies, you're at the mercy of the club store line at that point.

The official Botcon Twitter account has tweeted out an image of the Frank Welker VIP Package art print by Casey Coller with colors by Josh Perez. We've mirrored the image below of this really slick piece paying homage to many of Generation One Megatron's most famous moments.

At first click, I was actually a tad disappointed it wasn't a collage of all the TFs he voiced.

And then 3 seconds later, I was like, who cares? This is awesome!!!

I would've preferred a print titled "Don't Fuck with the Decepticons' The mostly focused on the most important aspect of G1 megatron. The trigger crotch.

That's pretty awesome!

What's that... orange explodey one, under the "main" Megatron's cannon? I'm drawing a complete blank on it.

His autograph card has all (or most) of his characters, though.

Plot point from G1 cartoon episode "Heavy Metal War". Megatron used a "furnace" made by Scrapper to absorb all the Decepticons' special powers. Skywarp's teleportation, Starscream's null rays, etc.
