    Hello everyone,

    I looked through the magazine discussion thread, but I didn't see this mentioned anywhere in the thread. In Brian Savage's letter, he has announced that three of the figures in the Botcon boxset will have remolded heads! :)  I'm wondering if they will be able to top last year's number of four new head sculpts (Megatron, Jazz, Goldbug, and Blurr).

    Sounds cool to me, though it doesn't really tell us much at all. Was this in the Club Magazine? If so I'm not sure it's something that's supposed to be posted like this...

    i think its dumb how the "club" information isnt allowed to be posted...its like saying discussion on the 2007 transformer movie shouldnt be allowed becuase giving information out on something someone else should have to pay to see for himself is a no-no

    anyways, when they say remolded heads, are they just throwing in new heads to replace the heads on previous toys?

    As far as I know, text information from the magazine is okay to be discussed in public as long as it's not a literal reproduction of the text from the magazine at verbatim. It's only images and other direct scans from the magazine that are not allowed to be posted. "This-and-that was said in the magazine, not in these exact words" should be perfectly fine.

    Yes, it came from the Club newsletter. I'm sorry if this wasn't supposed to be posted. :(  I didn't realize that it wouldn't be allowed. Should I ask a moderator to delete the thread? :confused: 

    Edit--Thank you Nevermore. That's a relief to know. I don't want to cause any problems! :)

    Ok, didn't know that. I thought it was "any info from the club magazine's/newsletters isn't supposed to be posted on the boards". And now I know, and knowing is half the battle.

    Can't wait to see what next years set is. I probably won't get it, but the sets are always fun to see. Would be kinda interesting to see some of the classics mold repainted as their Animated counterparts. Though there are some that are too close to consider a repaint.

    As Nevermore said, reporting the information is fine. No copy/paste of text, and no scans, which are both perfectly reasonable.

    The same as every other toy they've done that has new heads - they replace the heads on some of the toys, to better represent their intended characters.

    Yes - I want to find out when Botcon is so that I can decide if I want to go or not.

    will there be a way to pre-order these things once they are announced. I doubt they are going to have it in florida and if it isn't anywhere the the southeast then I doubt I'll be able to attend.

    I doubt they'll do another Jazz so soon.

    I do wonder what kinda set would be done for the 25th anniversary year though.

    Pre-orders should go up along with the date/location announcement sometime in 2011. Expect forms to be sent via carrier pigeon.
