BotCon 2012 - Wheeljack Is 2012 Fans Choice for Transformers Hall of Fame; Shockwave to Appear in Prime Series

By John DeLuna on Saturday, April 28, 2012

Just in from the Transformers BotCon 2012 is news from the Hall of Fame event in Dallas, Texas. It should be no surprise really that Wheeljack has been voted by the fans into the 2012 Transformers Hall of Fame

We would like to congratulate Wheeljack on the distinction that is long overdue.

It was also announced that Shockwave will be in Transformers Prime.

At the end of his induction video during the Hall of Fame ceremony, a clip from the series was included where he was being introduced to the Autobots in the show (could this be the character David Kaye will be voicing in a "special" two-part arc?).

Stay tuned to Tformers.com for more details as they are made available. Your best resource for all the Transformers news and community every day.

I voted exactly one time. And that was on the day it was announced.

I believe that BW Megs won, but Hasbro's like, "We cannot let this happen!"

Honestly.... Their is no way to prove the following: 1- If Hasbro/TFCC makes fans waste their time on the internet Voting for the Hall of fame. then Hasbro/TFCC turns around doesn't use any of the votes. and Hasbro/TFCC selects a Hall of Fame based off who they think should win. 2- In the no... read more

Botcon.com has posted the announcement today that Scott McNeil will be attending as a guest at Botcon 2016 in Louisville. While a complete listing of Scott's voice roles would occupy more space than the observable universe, naturally he's most relevant for his work on Beast Wars with four major characters to his name - and one minor role that happens to be fairly important to this year's exclusive box set: Tripredacus Council member Cicadacon. This will be Scott's seventh Botcon appearance.
Fun Publications has released the brochure for Botcon 2016, taking place in early April in Lexington, Kentucky. As such we now have the pricing info for the various convention packages, featuring a primus Package set at $399 - a reduction from the cost of 2015's box set. As well we now know what form the tour events will take, as well as some updated policy related in the brochure that everyone should make sure to be aware of. Keep reading for all the details!
The trademark-watchers over at Transformers@The Moon have posted a curious piece of news this morning: Hasbro has filed a trademark with the US Patent Office for the name "Cybertron Con," which is the name of the official Transformers convention in Asia. It's far too early to tell whether this means a name change for BotCon, a new convention, or simply a "defensive" trademark so no fan group can take it in the US, but at any rate, it's an interesting development! Keep reading for a link to the original story.
Via their social media channels, Fun Publications has revealed which of the three Combiner Wars Voyager body-types will be used for the fifth member of next year's boxset. General Sea Clamp will find himself embodied in Silverbolt - or at least, one of two variations. With no specific alt mode attributes visible in this teaser art, it's unclear if it will be Silverbolt specifically, or the retool as Scattershot. That will have to wait for the actual mockup reveal, due tomorrow. Meanwhile, click through for the art, taking us back to a better time in Transformers.
Botcon.com has been updated with the fourth reveal of the 2016 boxset's exclusives. As indicated in yesterday's art reveal, the newest figure is Cicadacon, a straight red and silver recolor of Aerialbot Skydive. With five new heads having been noted for this set of toys, that confirms the combined form will have a unique headsculpt. And this leaves us with just the torso remaining to be revealed as most likely General Sea Clamp, and so the wait begins to see which Voyager mold they've colored red and silver! Keep reading for the Cicadacon mockup image.
