Hot on the heels of the latest delay in launching preregistration with just over three weeks left until the convention starts, the Fun Pub Video Youtube channel has posted a pair of new videos giving a walkthrough demonstration of the new registration system for both regular attendees and exhibitors.

We have the videos embedded below, so click through to have a look.

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.

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.
