BotCon 2012 Convention Exclusive Set Revealed; Brochure Now Available
Peter Van - Saturday, December 24, 2011

Well, this is certainly a Christmas gift by Fun Publications! The company behind the annual BotCon convention has released their brochure to reveal the six-figure BotCon 2012 convention exclusive set!

The set is a mish mash of the traditional Classics Universe and the Shattered Glass dimension that was birthed in the 2008 exclusive set, and the war criminal Ultra Magnus and his merry band of Evil Autobots will shatter (heh) the barrier between regular and inverse to fight the heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons!

In the Shattered Glass side of figures, we will get Evil Ultra Magnus and Tracks as well as Heroic Treadshot and Soundwave.

For the traditional Classic Universe side, the “Overlord” Classics Gigatron, and the Pretender Commander Classics Metalhawk will round out the set.

While it is unknown specifically which mold Evil Ultra Magnus or the other robots will take, the teaser poster for BotCon 2012 (available on the right) features a silhouette of Transformers Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime.

Packages remain the same and but there is a bump in price from the 2011 prices: Primus is at $340 (members)/$415 (non-members); Mini-Con $90/$120; Protoform $150/$225; and Iacon (non-attendee) $340/$415.

Also this year there is a Primus Golden Ticket, where a current club member can add $300 to their package and receive the following perks:
  • Early package pickup on Wednesday Night OR Thursday before the
    regular posted pickup times.
  • Early shopping at the club store for exclusives before the regular posted
    shopping times AND triple the regular limit on exclusive convention
    souvenirs.
  • Exclusive Golden Ticket Cloisonné Pin.
  • Pre-signed autograph print (signed by all attending special guests).
  • Exclusive Meet and Greet Reception (pictures, light hors d’oeuvres, discussions, no autographs) on Friday night with special convention guests and celebrities.*
  • Reserved seating in the first three rows of all panels.
  • Extra $2,000 in credits for the Hall of Fame Party and Casino Night Dinner event.
  • Option to purchase one Mini-Con Golden Ticket package per each Primus Golden Ticket package. This option adds $100 to the Mini-Con Package price.
BotCon 2012 will run from April 26 - 29, 2012 in Fort Worth, Texas.

Yar, the nose cone goes into his chest in bot mode. You got a wee bit confused whoever said his head dissapears into his boob section

cyclonus' head doesnt go inside his chest...its flipped around and the cockpit/nosecone covers it up when the nosecone is flipped out for plane mode..his head is quite visible in alternate mode...

Just saw the Overlord/Gigatron figure. Never really liked that mold. That pic didn't help it. I think it the fat head he has

It wouldn't effect the transformation at all, as Cyclonus's head hides inside his chest in alt mode and not a part of the nosecone like the G1 toy

Cyclonus would like fine in bot mode with a new head, but I wonder how a new head would affect the transform.

You sir have sold me a SG Soundwave. Im actually trying to attend myself since I live in Lousiana now. If I do we'll have to hang out for a bit. But yeah even if I do go, Ill never be able to afford an entire box set. If you want to sell me SG Soundwave at less then what BBTS or eBay will crush ... read more

SG Soundwave did take that alt mode and form in the comics. The Ratchet/Ironhide mold. I've actually wanted a toy version for a long time. I'm disappointed I'm going to have to pay out the ass for it though and even more disappointed that I probably won't be able to.
