More Collectors Club News
The official BotCon Twitter account has revealed the creator behind this year's Transformers Timelines Story. Timelines is the fiction published in the Collector's Club magazines in prose and comic format and provides the source material for the exclusive toys for every BotCon. This year, they've got a big name with lots of solid Transformers experience - find out who below!
Though a website update is pending at the time of this writing, via the Botcon Twitter account, Fun Publications has revealed the latest addition to the 2014 guest roster as none other than James Roberts, writer of the highly praised More Than Meets The Eye! Fans of the current IDW titles planning to attend this year's convention should be very excited! While we wait for botcon.com to update, you can see the original tweet below.
In a bit of a shocking move, the Botcon website has revealed that not only is a G1-flavored recolor of Energon Scorponok the 4th boxset toy for this year, but they've also made it a functioning Headmaster! While up to this point everyone believed that the previous reveal of Devcon would mark the main must-have figure from the set, it's probably safe to say that's been blown away by today's news. Keep reading for more information and images!
The Transformers: BotCon twitter account has posted a bunch of tweets about the 4th figure which is said to the biggest (size) BotCon figure yet. One of the tweets mentions the figures will crowd this years box with the toys just barely fitting. We also have a new look at this Olin fellow from Tornado's Facebook page who reveals him as "Olin Zarack" See the tweets and images below for the full details.
The official BotCon 2014 page has been updated with a new image asking "Who is Olin?" They teased us sometime ago about another Squirm character that was said to have a human form. Now we have another concept design shows a second human like character. See the image for the preview until we know more about what is said to be the most important reveal coming to the Pirates vs. Knights story line yet.
