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

A very brief but important update from BotCon HQ, via TF_JW, concerning Beast Wars voice actor Scott McNeil - who can no longer attend the event, due to personal matters. As we're sure he will be missed at the con, we join in with best wishes and hope to see him at another event soon!

From one Dinobot to another: BotCon 2016 is pleased to announce Gregg Berger as guest!

http://www.botcon.com/BotCon2016/bc16guests.cfm

Hello Members!

We have some exciting news! On Friday afternoon, BotCon registered attendees will be treated to a script reading panel starring Judd Nelson, David Kaye, Venus Terzo, and Gregg Berger! To see this you must be a registered attendee, so make sure you have signed up for your Primus, Golden Ticket Primus, MiniCon or Protoform package. Also, for those who have already registered, if you have not yet added your Judd Nelson VIP Pass to your existing package you can do that today! Visit BotCon for the details and then if you need to register, add the VIP pass or do both, you can do that here.

As you can tell from the above paragraph, there has been a guest change. Unfortunately due to personal reasons, Scott McNeil had to cancel. However, Gregg Berger will now be coming! We will all miss Scott, but we are very excited about seeing our old friend Gregg in a few short weeks.

Registration will close on March 21st so there is not much time left to register. Currently there are only 30% of the Primus packages, 8% of the GT packages and 19% of the Iacon (non-attending) packages, left.

Please note that March 16 is the last day you can join the Transformers Collectors Club. If you are interested in receiving the discounts for BotCon, the 2016 FREE Membership Incentive figure and/or purchasing the TFSS 5.0 (to be revealed in full at BotCon 2016) you will need to be an active member as of March 16. All memberships will end December 31, 2016. Hasbro looks forward to sharing new plans for the Collector’s Club with you in the future.

We appreciate your support over the last 12 years and wish the brand well in their new endeavors.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing each and every one of our Club members at BotCon 2016!

Brian

Not necessarily. All that's saying is that the announcement of who IS doing the club would come from Hasbro. Which is how it's pretty much always been.

Not to say that Hasbro ISN'T taking over the club, themselves. It's just that we can't glean that from this post.

Yeah, I just read the new email before coming here. This is the first time FunPub has actually addressed the club's move directly. But it seems like they'll still be handling the Figure Subscription Service next year unless that counts as a 2016 project since you need a 2016 membership to buy them.

I'm still convinced that they're going to try to squeeze those in by the end of the year. Admittedly, they'll have to move pretty quickly after BotCon to make that happen.

As a side note, can you only get one TFSS per membership? Cause I'm thinking about ordering two for 5.0 and I need to know if I should buy another membership now in order to make that happen.

Historically, you can get as many TFSS sets you like, so long as you've got the money, and you make the orders during whatever subscription period is set for the TFSS. You won't need to buy an extra membership.

The Transformers Collectors' Club sent out an email update for BotCon 2016. As was mentioned earlier, Scott McNeil is no longer attending but in his place Gregg Berger (G1 Grimlock, Long Haul and Skyfire) will be attending and participating in the script reading with Judd Nelson, David Kaye and Venus Terzo. Also registration will close on March 21 and the update gives a hint concerning the future of the Transformers Collectors' Club. You can read their entire update below.

Soooo.....it looks like one of two things has happened. Either FunPub lost their license to the Collector's Club, or Hasbro just decided not to renew it, in order to run it themselves or license it to someone else. As for TFSS 5.0, my guess is that it had been planned before this decision, and it will be FunPub's swansong as operators of the Fan/Collector's Club. Whether it will come out late this year or finish next year is anyone's guess.
