Many of you have been asking how the souvenir distribution
will work at BotCon.
In order to allow the most people the opportunity to purchase this year's
(no, I'm not announcing what they are) we are limiting each Primus, Substitute
Primus, Energon, Dealer
or Protoform badge holder to a limit of one set of each of the souvenir figures
(per person). Mini-Con
packages are not eligible to purchase these items on Thursday or Friday.
This limit will be in place for Thursday night and Friday. IF there are any
left after 5:00 PM on Friday.
We will make these available to any registered attendees (including Mini-Cons)
starting at 8:30 am
on Saturday. IF there are any left at 9:00 am, early bird general admission
will be able to get in line
and at 10 am regular general admission will be able to get in line. The limit
on Saturday will also be
one per person.
Please note that the souvenir figures are available from the Club Store at
BotCon and you must have
your badge from registration pick-up in order to purchase anything on Thursday
Please do not email or call with questions concerning the figures, costs,
or quantity as we cannot answer
those questions. All will be revealed on Thursday night at the show.
See you at the show!
Demand continues to outstrip supply for BotCon items and registrations!
All of the free attending figures (Ricochet) have now been spoken for.
Any dealers or attendees registrations received between April 1st and the
event will not receive the free
attending figure. Supplies are exhausted. Cut off for Pre-registration is
April 10. After that date, you will need to
come to Late Registration Friday morning at 9:30.

As promised here is the Attendee Bonus Figure for this year.....Ricochet!
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.
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
This is the first time we have shown the free attending figure before the
start of BotCon!
2) We are creating a new attending package designed for this
