    My wife-to-be is looking to take us to Orlando (AND BOTCON WHOOO HOOO) for our honeymoon later this year.

    My question to all of you Botcon veterans is, how does one register to go/get the exclusive toys?

    We have been checking the Botcon official page everday for updates but, now I noticed that there's a news thread today saying that the online page may not be up and running this year. It also said that a form will be required to register.......how do we go about doing this?

    THANKS to anyone who posts!!

    Registration is not open yet. When it is, you fill out a form and fax it to them. Yes, that's right, fax.

    From their website, and probably, or at the time when registration opens. They usually release a few preview images, but if you register ASAP, you will likely end up paying for figures you might not have complete details on.

    The toys are funny. Usually you'll know the theme of the set, and the characters in it, from the brochure, which goes up before the forms (they've been doing it this way for a couple of years to let people work out what they want).

    Forms tend to go up about a week after the brochure, you complete them and return them with what you want. The first toy images are usually out by this point. The other toy images come out as the convention gets nearer.
