Use this thread to discuss Botcon 2007 - Transformers Collectors Club Roundtable Images and Information. Full Botcon 2007 gallery here: Botcon 2007 Update from Sol: lots of interesting stuff come out of this session: - There may still be hope for the four 6 inch Titaniums (Arcee, Shockwave, Cosmos and WW Bumblebee) - The Seacons were asked about a couple of times. The response was "Seacons? What are they?" Seems to me that they might actually be in the pipeline in some fashion or another. - The possibility of getting Elita 1 or Sunstorm as a club store exclusive was raised - the panel responded with a firm "no comment", "many projects they cannot discuss are being worked on" - Exclusives are hard to do because Takara are reluctant to commit to the small production run. This was the reason for the delay on Breakaway, the club exclusive toy, and kickback rules - Electronic registration is highly unlikely due to potential problems with processing. Brian Savage stressed that it takes a long time to process forms because of the amount of errors on forms / hard to read etc, in future they'll process correct forms first. - The club store will NOT be carrying SDCC Rodimus or Menasor, due to the problems they had with Nemesis Prime last year. - The "cart issue" where something is not removed from stock until you check out will be fixed so it will be removed from stock when you put it in your cart in future. - The club fiction, "The Razor's Edge" will be done and posted shortly, hopefully in a week. - Unused Exclusive toy ideas were talked about. Alpha Trion was a holdover from a previous idea for this year's boxed set (hence he is not in the comic, nor counted as a Classic due to the fact it is placed in the Marvel G1 Comic continuity) - Other unused ideas - Wolfang was to be an on the door exclusive, not Tigatron, also initially last year the other two pack set was to be Terrorsaur and Divebomb, but Hasbro could not find the other Machine Wars jet to use as Terrorsaur so the plan was changed. - Ben Yee expressed an interest in doing a set of "reborn Deluxe Insecticons" after the Descent into Evil set - Springer / Cybertron Defence Hot Shot redeco was initially going to be Sentinel Prime. - The possibility of having a Leader in the exclusive boxed set was discussed. The trade off is that the cost would have to go up, Fun Publications are very interested to know what people would think to having less toys in the box if it meant they got a Leader "because there are some great Leader Class toys out there"
