BotCon Offers New Attendence Package Options

    The demand for this year's BotCon figure sets (both boxed and loose) has been unprecedented…and they are now officially SOLD OUT. Since manufacturing of the sets has already been completed, we are not able to obtain additional quantities.

    In order to accommodate those who are still planning to attend, we are providing you with two new options:

    1) You can still come as a Primus Package holder and we will substitute a 2005 BotCon Boxed Set Descent into Evil (click here to view) - at the reduced cost of $250 for Club members, $300 for non-members - and in addition, you will receive this year's free attending figure. Loose sets are also available for $130 for Club members and $165 for non-members.

    2) We are creating a new attending package designed for this year only! The Energon Package includes admission to all events (just like the Primus Package, including the Casino Night Awards Dinner) a convention badge, pin and comic/program (no toys). The Energon Package is $180 for Club members, $230 for non-members.

    So that you can see what you will be getting this year, we have decided to do something we have never done before... we are going to unveil the free attending figure this Friday!

    This is the first time we have shown the free attending figure before the start of BotCon!

    Thank you, once again, for your support! We look forward to seeing you in Cincinnati!

so ratchet doesn't come with this set right?

Correct. Ratchet was in a separate two-figure set with Flareup.

meh, it's better than nothing at all though i don't understand why demand for this particular set is what it is. my guess is that it's influx from the movie. i know it's a really unpopular opinion, but maybe they should cut back on the non-attendee packages they offer next year, or give those who purchased a non-attendee set a raincheck until they can get more produced and take that 15% to the con.

2 wrongly executed repaints of a decent mold in the same year... NICE! :fail

Well, this is one way to get rid of all those leftover sets.

Anyone got links to a html link to the descent into evil set please? The Botcon sites link doesnt really takes AGGGEEEEESSSS to load up.

Seems its not just their conventions that are a bit slow on the upkeep, eh readers?
