Oh hey! Here's this thing that's really expensive that you wanna do. We're just gonna dump that in your lap today. At some point. Today. Stay glued to your PC. Today.

I love Botcon and I'm pretty pissed at the timing for all their stuff this year. Registration goes up not even 2 full weeks after Christmas? The exclusives are being offered soon as well? Yeah, real smooth. Why can we not get solid info this long after Fun Pub has taken the reigns. I know these people aren't amateurs but you wouldn't know it by the way this is run. Every, freaking, year!

I agree......the timing on this registration is LAME!!! On top of that you would think we would at least get to see the rest of the Set Figures before making our decision on which package we're going with!!! Oh, and lets not forget those who had to make the "initial" $145 on the Hyatt Hotel this week also!!! I love Botcon, but this year seems rushed and full of mistakes!!! :BOT: :BOT: :BOT: :CON: :CON: :CON:

Im hoping that Reg goes live at night..It sucks having to work mornings and having no chance of registering early. I understand they want it to go off without any glitches but FFS. Members of TFCC should get first shot at Registering IMO..

What makes it worse is that their home office is like a few minutes away from where the con is actually taking place...You would thnk they would have had this stuff locked up months ago...

The time has come that many have been waiting patiently for. Registration is now live for attending packages. You can Register at the BotCon 2012 website.

During the registration process, you may notice that all six Boxset figures are pictured. This confirms that Metal Hawk is made from Generations Thunderwing with a new head and Evil Ultra Magnus from RTS Optimus Prime. BotCon tweeted that we will get to see clearer pictures of Metal Hawk later tonight. Below is pictures of all figures in alt mode and robot mode.

As you can see, the rumors that were posted here continue to be accurate. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your BotCon 2012 news.

Ugh, as soon as I got home about 15 mins ago I went straight to botcon.com, saw registration and hit it up. The Wednesday class was still clickable! -But when I clicked on it, it said sold out :( I was psyched because I wanted the Wed class. :( A bit sad about that. This year is likely the only one I'll be at the con early enough to got to one. :/

Either way, I'll keep checking back occasionally to see if any more get thrown up.

I'm with you. I already bought a RTS Tracks at Ross for $7 to start turning into Road Rage. I wonder why they didn't just call the Botcon figure by that name rather than "Evil Tracks"

The set seems to be pretty lackluster this year IMO; especially after the awesome Animated Stunticons we got last year. At least the rumors (which I'm guessing we can all agree are pretty accurate thus far) of the attendee figures seem to be interesting. Can't wait to see the SG Junkions and SG Swindle!

All custom classes sold out in less than 8 minutes. I have never been quite so infuriated at an entity I give boatloads of money to every year.

Easy Pass. Not interested in any of these figures for the price of them. Not really disappointed as I don't have the money anyway but still.

Only one I'm even remotely interested in is Tracks, so I'll just ebay the one for boku bucks later in the year.

I'll be spending hard earned $$$ on the junkions too I suspect.

Why do you even bother buying one set if you don't like it. I'm sure there are plenty of people who would love to have one but can't.

@^ I think he means he will buy some later, not sell a set from the con. Even so, I will be selling my set after the con to pay for the trip, I will pick up a loose set for me, and maybe a set of Junkions to hold onto for rpetras ;)

Will someone sell me a Treadshot? He is the only one of the 6 I want. I'll be at at BotCon so we can do business in person if you'll be there too. If you are interested, PM me.
