Entertainment Earth has just posted that in association with Hasbro, they'll be handing out free diorama backdrops based on either Transformers or My Little Pony with a purchase from the EE booth at SDCC next month. The Transformers backdrop is based on the Autobot Command Center from the original cartoon, and measures 9.5 x 11 inches, making it suitable for use with a wide range of toys. Keep reading to see the images!
With Botcon now just a lingering memory and Team FunPub back safely at home, they've taken stock of the exclusives for this year and found leftovers of basically everything to make available for purchase on the club's online store. While naturally the attendee freebie figure is not among them, everything else is currently available for purchase. If you couldn't make Botcon itself but still want some of the exclusives, head on over and take advantage of the leftovers while they last! Keep reading for a full list.
