Another piece of Botcon information for all you Transformers fans headed that way. We have received an update notifying us of more hotel rooms now available in the host hotel and the message has been mirrored below.

Hello members!

This just in from the hotel: They had another group release hotel rooms so if you are not staying at the host hotel, you can change your reservations, so give them a call:
800-The-Galt (800-843-4258) or 502-589-5200!

See you this week in Louisville!

Well, so much for CW Bluestreak. But I have a question for you guys (might ask the podcast this), are these figures considered official by fans? I know they are licensed, but do fans see them as official as other toys distributed by hasbro? Like will we nd up seeing this SG Ratchet in the TF Wiki?

I don't understand why anyone believed the Bluestreak rumor in the first place. FP specifically stated that the CC figure would have a new head, and Prowl's head extremely similar to Bluestreak's, so it wouldn't to make a new one.

As for the figure itself, I was right on it being Ratchet, and it's really cool that you have five options for it.

Leftovers will be found on the club's website. Unpainted of course, since this is a custom class and the whole point is you have to paint it yourself. You also have to be a club member to purchase it.

I'll vouch for N. I remember him calling it as Ratchet. ;)
I'm relieved it's not Bluestreak. Unlikely, but maybe will see him down the road.
Love that Ratchet head sculpt.

Ya, good point. That would look better.
The translucent HFGs and weapons are strange and wonderful though.

That's pretty cool. I've never been to botcon and I've always wondered what is used to paint these. I've always been scared the paint would just smear.

Heck if black paint is an option you could totally make a very IDW prowl out of that.

I never stated it on Seibertron, but I been predicting Ratchet since the reveal of Terrorsaur shot down my Red Wing hopes.

If anyone that's at the class happens to have leftover Ratchet and/or Medix stickers, I'm willing to buy them off you!

I thought it was paint, and the Stickers are included for the non-attendee custom class figure. I could be wrong.

Yup, that is correct. The session only gives you the stickers you choose to apply. Meaning that you will still be able to get the stickers and figure packaged together with the leftovers on their site later.

But i have a question guys, does this mean that there will now be a new entry for toys in the TF Wiki for:

Rescue Bots Medix
SG Ratchet
G1 Ratchet
G2 Ratchet
