BotCon 2011 - Transformers Hall of Fame Display and Trophies
By bwbm on Friday, June 03, 2011
The BotCon 2011 gallery room is open! Here, we have images of the Transformers Hall of Fame display, including images of the Hall of Fame Class of 2010, as well as bios and toy displays of each inductee! Take a look at the shots in the gallery!
Entertainment Earth has just posted that in association with Hasbro, they'll be handing out free diorama backdrops based on either Transformers or My Little Pony with a purchase from the EE booth at SDCC next month. The Transformers backdrop is based on the Autobot Command Center from the original cartoon, and measures 9.5 x 11 inches, making it suitable for use with a wide range of toys. Keep reading to see the images!
With Botcon now just a lingering memory and Team FunPub back safely at home, they've taken stock of the exclusives for this year and found leftovers of basically everything to make available for purchase on the club's online store. While naturally the attendee freebie figure is not among them, everything else is currently available for purchase. If you couldn't make Botcon itself but still want some of the exclusives, head on over and take advantage of the leftovers while they last! Keep reading for a full list.
This week it's our annual JD Church Memorial Show! We take a few minutes to remember our friend JD, who passed away last year. Also, Botcon! We talk about all the reveals and news from Hasbro last week, as well as the Tokyo Toy Show News from Takara. If you want to hear more about Sky Lynx, Masterpiece Optimus Primal, Masterpiece Ironhide, Titan Wars and more, tune in! For more Botcon talk check out our recent RFC Mini-cast as well as RFC Extra (episodes 14 and 15!)
While there were no new items added today, we did swing by Hasbro's display case one more time to get another round of high quality photos of the upcoming figures on display. With added looks at Sky Reign and Sky Lynx, the Combaticons, new Legends like Shockwave and Buzzsaw, plus RID Mini-Cons and recolors, we have almost 100 more photos to keep you in anticipation of all these releases. Click through and check them out!
On Sunday afternoon, the Art of Transformers panel took place, though more accurately it could have been called "The Artists Of Transformers" as it took place in the form of a question and answer session with the artists of both linework and coloring in the Transformers titles. Click through and keep reading to check out our rundown of the events of the panel!
