    BotCon.com has been updated

    Have to say,a musical guest at the dinner is definitely different.Seems Brian Savage is aiming to make this a Botcon to remember.Never heard of the guy,but as I've already paid for the dinner. I'm expecting it'll make for great entertainment :D 

    Besides I hear music aids digestion :D

    No idea who Das Gift is, but it sounds either right up my alley, or exactly parallel and not my thing.

    They better not make this Botcon ANY cooler, or I swear I've going to faint there from the sheer awesomeness of it.

    I have to wonder which Optimus Prime figure would be used for the contest. It'd be cool if it were a classic OP.

    So in other words, non-US members get screwed. Absolute crap.
    Oh, and I bloody hated Evanescence.
    This is the first news about Botcon this year that I haven't liked.

    I know Adrian James personally. Many of you have probably bumped into him at past botcons. He's a great guy and a wonderful musician. His solo work really isn't anything like Evanesense. If you guys have questions about the music, I'll see if I can get him to drop in over here and talk about it himself.

    With all due respect to the eventual winner, I think if anyone deserves their head on an Optimus Prime figure, it would have to be Elvin.

    Has anyone heard if Hasbro will be giving away any Botcon Excluisives this year? Or is the custom OP all there is?

    Please do! I like Evanescence myself (not my top band by any means *points at sig* but yeah), but I'd really like to know if he has a MySpace up or something like that. Band name has me somewhat intrigued, if anything. :D 

    *edit* And the US-only restriction on the contest BLOWS. :(  However, I'm gonna ask at the booth if I can just put in a US address and have the thing shipped to someone I know in the States.

    That's what I'd do.

    If I was interested I'd just contact my Aunt in New Jersey and have it sent there.

    Meh Canada always get excluded from the cool contests:redface2:

    Canada? What about like the rest of the World? :p 

    So you guys will write in a US address? Guess I'll have to do the same then.

    If anyone asks, I live in Miami.

    Hey all. I'm here, actually. Thanks for the kind words Flamepanther! And if some of our overseas visitors can't get into the dinner, I'm sure you can grab me during the con for some impromptu songs. I should have a guitar throughout the con. Someone was asking about hearing some samples. You can hear some at my Myspace page here. Hope you find some you like!

    Nice sounds

    Sounds like easy listening music to me with a little bit of rock for flavor :)
