I'm really kinda destroyed by this news, and i hope that some sort of "Transformers" con comes back in it's place. I really want to go to one of these at least one time in my life.

I know its not a big deal to everyone else who has either had the privilege to go, or generally doesn't care, but the convention means alot to me.


Dont worry, these events wont end. Botcon, that specific con, will end but there are still a bunch of TF shows all over the states. Plus Hasbro is rpesent at both NYCC and SDCC, you can go to those.
AND word on the street is Hasbro will be running these shows from now on and make them more filled with activities, kinda like Star Wars celebration. So dont worry, you can a) still assist product reveals at other shows and b) still participate in whatever Hasbro plans next. :D

Thanks for the heads up! Wish I could snag this version along with my previous versions. Note to the author of this article: Please update to read "Limited Edition vinyl LP." If you look at some of the pix,the cover sticker reveals that it's pressed on 180 gram vinyl. This refers to the (vinyl thickness in particular and) extra weight of the record itself.

You mean the "Alt Modes" toys with the big heads? IIRC they're gonna be either blind bagged or blind boxed.

You're not alone. I've been to a couple and regret not going to this one, it was even close to me. I hope Hasbro picks up the ball with this and runs with it, or at the very least expands into other Comic Cons, or SOMETHING, but there's nothing like a convention full of like minded fans.

Oh wow, that famed mode actually looks pretty good in your pics, much better put together than the model on display at BotCon.

I want one sooooooo bad...

If there's any left over (and guessing from the mixed reaction, there could be some left over), they'll go on sale on the Club's store (if you're a club member). They're like $62 a pop, so definitely a sweet deal compares to past souvenirs (compared to the 2014 ones I have, I should say)!

It was reported on Twitter that the Club sold off huge lots of the souvenirs to BBTS.

I guess with it being their last year, they wanted guaranteed sales over stock sitting unsold.
If they have sold them to BBTS then unsold stock is BBTS' concern not Fun Pub's.

You know what I'm gonna do itscram? I am saying screw this and not play this game. I will instead wait for Takara to do something. We have seen that Takara can do their own thing and I dont see it out of the realm of possibility for them to do their own reflector with this mold. And if they made a box set of three, I am sure they would even go and retool the chest on one of them to have that circle. And if they dont, oh well, another (and better) reflector will come out someday. As was the case for any exclusive once representing a character like GDO Swerve and Springer, or Club Chromedome, or Club Rewind and on and on.

I like the way you think WJ. It's funny how all of those figures you mentioned were replaced with newer better options. Time for some Cobotron-esque ninja-patience :lol:

Although I should include you in the ninja-patience master teachings now..
