What's with all the posts simply repeating what TF_JW has already officially shown us?

Archie Cunningham is the creator of the Armored Forces comic, but his interest in comic books and pop culture goes far beyond that... Check out his Transformers art as well as his original creations at BotCon 2016! It'll be great to have him there!

I guess that makes sense. It's kind of annoying for me, though, as I get an e-mail that tells me there's a new post whenever such is generated on these forums.

Usually, I find this to be a helpful feature, but it's frustrating to come on to find that there's actually nothing new after all.

Robby Musso, who is probably the nicest guy you will ever meet, will be set up in the Artist Alley again this year. Stop by to see his fantastic artwork, which includes a lot more than just Transformers for those with wider interests.

There's also this guy. I don't think anyone knows who he is...
Just kidding, everyone knows the Transformers: Animated art director and biggest Transformers fanboy there is, Derrick J. Wyatt!

Winston Bolen has been providing line art and colors for the Transformers Collectors' Club for almost ten years... yet this will be his first BotCon appearance ever! Stop by his table to see some great pieces that you've probably never seen for sale before!

Adam Hicks is a pop culture illustrator who has quite the library of work to offer. Super heroes, movie & tv characters, and of course Transformers. He's great with marker sketches, so make sure you get your name on his commissions list!

Do you like dinosaurs? Everyone likes dinosaurs!

Matt Frank, the much-praised artist behind IDW's Godzilla comics and frequent artist for Fun Publications projects, will be in the Artist Alley with plenty of beastly goodness. Grimlock, Beast Wars, and some plain old humanoid robots as well, you'll have plenty to browse through if you stop by his table.

Thomas Deer is a fantastic colorist who has worked on many comics for Fun Publications and IDW. You can find his colors paired with Matt Frank's line art in more than a few of those issues!

If you've seen any concept art from the movies or Transformers Prime, there is a chance that Ken Christiansen had a hand in creating it. Especially if it was in the Transformers Covenant of Primus book. If you're fan of the enigmatic 13 original Transformers, stopping by Ken Christiansen's table would be... Prime.

If you never heard the name Rob Roberts, perhaps you've heard "Cheetimus". You've definitely seen his custom Transformers action figures! He'll have his table set up again this year, sell customs and offering to jazz up your Transformers figures with whatever paint you'd like!

Silas Zee has made a name for himself with his simple style that captures the look of animated films from days past and turning robotic characters in to human forms.

Hayato Sakamoto is currently writing and illustrating the pack-in and web comics for Takara Tomy's Legends toy line, as well as providing artwork for the occasional IDW Transformers More Than Meets The Eye issue. He has also done the Takara Tomy Kre-O comic strips and the BotCon 2014 "Hoist The Flag" comic.

Last but certainly far from least is Dan Khanna! Dan has been part of the brand almost as long as there has been a BotCon, and continues to produce terrific artwork. Stop by his table and say "hi" as you browse his extensive portfolio.

This pleases me. Since I'm getting the unpainted class figure, I'll have him paint it (and maybe my Wheeljack).


Also, probably a dumb question, but does anyone know if he'll charge money for this?

Almost certainly. It won't be cheap, I can assure you.

Anyway, this is quite the awesome lineup! I wish I could go. I'd love to meet some of these guys, especially Hayato Sakamoto.

Also, that Strongarm pic by Silas Zee is just adorable.

I'd reach out to him via Twitter - @Cheetimus or email - Cheetimus@cheetimus.com to ask ahead of time what he would charge. Maybe even get in on his commission list early.

When Cheets painted my Primal Prime for me back at BotCon 2014, he charged a fee of $50.

Sheesh. That kicks Break-Neck off of the stuff to buy there.

Then again (if your price range is correct), having the class figure painted would probably equal the remaining cost of taking the class itself, and takes away the chance of me screwing it up.

He did mine after the convention, but at the same price. Personally, I thought it was totally worth it, even after accounting for some delays.

You can see some pictures of his work on mine here: http://blackrockstoybox.blogspot.com/20 ... prime.html
