BotCon 2012 - The Dealer Room & Cosplay

By Peter Van on Monday, April 30, 2012



One of the highlights of BotCon has always been the dealer room and this year is not any different. With fans and collectors alike running around the floor trying to hunt down that one toy that they have been looking for, this is the place to be. This year, we saw quite a lot of cool stuff, with Takara Tomy's Masterpiece MP-11 Starscream selling out at various dealers within an hour or so into the preview, shops with Transformers First Edition figures getting swamped, and more. Take a walk with us in the gallery in the full article!

As of just after 5pm Central Time today, a message posted on the Botcon Official Facebook page has confirmed that all attempts at resuscitating the pre-registration system have failed. While a very, very few individuals reportedly managed to complete registration, for most people a series of escalating failures prevented completion of the process, and they will have to wait and try again tomorrow when Fun Publications hopes that all the external factors at work have been dealt with adequately. Keep reading to see a copy of the message.
Today, Tuesday, May 26, just barely three weeks from the opening events of Botcon 2015, preregistration has finally gone online! ...only to be shut back down minutes later. It appears that issues relating to the strain on the server has forced the system to be disabled until their hosting provider can take steps to improve performance. We've included a screengrab of the message currently being displayed. And in the meantime we're just hoping that reactivation at least waits until after most people's workdays are over with!
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. At last report, the earliest registration is expected to possibly go live is now Tuesday, May 26th, following additional complications with bringing the new system online. We have the videos embedded below, so click through to have a look.
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.
