BotCon - Transformers Club Roundtable

The club is aware of the Fans dismay over the classics molds in the set but felt that since Hasbro had no plans to make the molds, this would be the one chance fans had to get them.

The website is being worked on. They are looking to add pre-orders and maintain other community aspects of the site. They are looking to fix some bugs with the cart and other stuff.

The price of the club toys is due to low production runs that Takara does not like to make. They need to sell a lot more of them to to get the prices down. They are trying things to cut the cost like making multiple figures at once.

The best way to see more club exclusives is to buy the ones they have for sale now and previously. They still have back stock of figures like Astrotrain, the money tied up in those hinders their abilty to make more. So support the club if you want more toys.

Ben Yee's "Razor's Edge" story is done and will be published in the near future.

Supposedly Alpha Trion was a figure they wanted to do for previous shows, but found a place for it this year and used it. Thank YOU!

There was mention of a "reborn Deluxe Insecticons" after the Descent into Evil set, but said it would never happen.

Springer was originally supposed to be to be Sentinel Prime.

They want to offer toys sooner but Hasbro does not allow them access to product before other retailers.

They will not have the SDCC Rodimus and Meansor because Hasbro has not offered them and last year they had a lot of problems with online orders for Nemesis Prime.

The Transformers club will soon have more members than the GI Joe club.hip in the GI Joe Club.

The topic of the Universe Seacons came up and it was clear by the half joking avoidence of the question that there is something going on with it... or they are were just pulling our chains.

Like wise, people asked about Titaniums being made for the club with another "no comment" response from the panel.

Locations of future conventions were thrown out. Would we like to see shows at Disney world and would Spring or summer be preferred.

The Panel asked if we'd like to see a Transformers convention along side GI Joe.

They also talked about shows being done in the UK and Europe as well but the expense of travel and such is a big deterrant at this time.

More questions were thrown about larger figures like Leader class figures at a higher price.

The club is trying to keep the costs down so they can offer lower prices. However they need more support from the fans. More memberships and members buying toys will help them offer better value.
