The official BotCon Twitter has posted stating that the registration system is not ready and will not be ready until after the US Memorial Day holiday weekend. This would put registration as likely beginning on Tuesday, May 26th - roughly three weeks before the actual start of the convention. Keep reading for the Tweets.
With about 25 days remaining before the first planned activities of this year's Botcon, it looks like registration will finally go live sometime on Friday, May 22. The Botcon Twitter account posted a notice to this effect, and an update to botcon.com goes in to slightly more detail, anticipating pre-reg so long as no technical issues present themselves in the meantime. Along with this, images of this year's t-shirt and hat were also posted. Click through and check out the images and a quote from the update.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Chris shows off Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus, Titan-class Devastator shows up on Amazon, more possible Botcon exclusives leak, Dystopia still available and Kilby will be tormented, X-Transbots Andras Swarm Leader (aka NOT Scourge) up for pre-order, Botcon is less than a month away--ARE YOU READY? All this and more!!
Keeping priorities well in line, Fun Publications has followed through on yesterday's promise and posted the first three pages of the at-show comic book story. Featuring Stepper, Battletrap, and Megatron out of the boxset's offerings, the preview is just enough to set up the underlying notion of the story typing the disparate toys together. The final page of the preview also featured an obscured character, who after some guesses to the identity perhaps got too close, was obscured even more. Identity speculation and preview images in the full article!
Registration is now open for TFCon Charlotte! Available online for a whopping, super-professional 149 days/5ish months/21 weeks before the event, prices range from a $264 package for the weekend and a set of convention-exclusive toys down to $22 for Sunday only. Prices are also given for the various figures as add-ons, and also T-Shirts ranging up to size 3XL. Keep reading to see, and for a link!
