2015 NEWS ARCHIVE:


BotCon 2015 Update!05/28/2015 - Non-Attending registration is now open. There is a limited number of non-attending sets available. When we run out, at a later date we will load the leftover attending sets (if available) into non-attending as we must keep those in stock for fans that want to travel to the event.

So, if you don't get a non-attending set now, we will let you know in the future when (if any) additional sets become available.

These sets will ship 3-4 weeks after the staff returns from BotCon. Also, note that the Priority Mail number of days listed in the shipping section is the service the Post Office offers and not a guarantee that the items will come in that number of days. All Priority Mail is a 2-5 day service and can actually take longer than that.

BotCon 2015 Update!05/13/2015 - We are in the final testing stage for the BotCon registration system now. So we are gong to say it won't be up this week. We will give you an update at the first of next week.

Make sure you keep checking our FAQ updates and if you have any other questions, please use the Contact Us on the menu link along the left side of the page.

Thanks for your patience!


BotCon 2015 Update!05/07/2015 - We continue to work on the final issues to get registration online. This will not happen this week. We will update you next week. Now you don't have to worry about checking the site on Friday.

The hotel has told us that they are sold out and cannot add anymore rooms to our block. You will have to look for accommodations elsewhere if you don't have a room yet. We also cannot find a hotel in close proximity to the event to get a second block.

The good news is that the parking is free at the hotel for BotCon.


BotCon 2015 Update!05/01/2015 - We are still working on the final issues to get registration online. This will not happen before next Thursday. We will update you as we get the final issues completed.

The hotel is working on finding some more rooms for our block. I have not heard back from them yet. Currently they are searching for duplicate rooms so if you have a room you are not going to use, please release it so someone else can reserve it. Remember that you must put down a first nights deposit and if you don't cancel by the cut off you will lose the deposit amount.

If they don't find more rooms for us, we will get a block at a second hotel so, no worries. I'll let you know as soon as they figure out what they can do.
