Today we have loaded online all of the pictures of the 2005 BotCon set, stop
by and check it out at botcon.com or transformersclub.com.
I have had a couple of questions:
1. The hotel is sold out, is there a alternate.
Yes, We have made arrangements for a block of rooms a the Hampton Inn Frisco
(about 1.5 blocks from the show). You can call their toll free number at
866-751-8400 or you can do it online at hamptoninn.com and use the code TRN.
When you call in tell them you are with BotCon or Transformers and they will
give you a very special rate.
2. The set looks great! Can I order one if I can't come to the show?
Yes. Just download the registration form at botcon.com and you want the Iacon
package (non-attending). Please remember that any non-attending packages
ordered before the show includes shipping. After the show (if there are any
left) we will put them in the online store at transformersclub.com/shop and the
shipping will be extra. Please note that for attending packages, we will stop
taking checks on Aug 29 (we have to have time for them to clear). After that
date, you must to use a credit card or cash. We also don't take checks at the
convention but there is an ATM in the lobby of the hotel.

Well, many times these items sell out at the show as we run a smaller quantity.
After the show, if there is anything left, we will put them online. We do limit
everyone on Thursday night so that each registered guest can have an opportunity
to purchse these items. The only way you can get them on Thursday night or
Friday is you must be a registered guest. If anything makes it until Saturday
morning, it will be available to the General Admission attendees.
5. Who are the special guests?
The first two guests will be announced on Monday.
Thanks for your support and we are looking forward to a great 2005 BotCon. I
hope you are as well.
