didn't know the reference before searching, but the Lizard Queen & fermentarium thing are from Simpsons. https://en.m.wikiped.../Selma's_Choice

What the hug's a fermentarium?

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 04:34 PM)

'Dawn of the Predacus' not your cup of tea? Try TRANSFORMERS: UNITY for your BotCon 2016 comic.

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

@  Telly : (30 April 2016 - 09:25 PM)

like paladin says, bbts and the like probly have them (or will get them soon) but are waiting for the hasbro release date before putting up pages

@  Paladin : (30 April 2016 - 05:10 PM)

something about street dates I think...

@  Pennpenn : (30 April 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Any particular reason it's not available in some of the ones I see more often like BBTS and TFSource and so on?

@  unluckiness : (30 April 2016 - 09:55 AM)

Might want to wash your hands after handling the toys if you order from the latter.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2016 - 05:48 AM)

@  tffan01 : (30 April 2016 - 05:42 AM)

@summer, I was wondering why it looks like an ordinary TF group instead of being about TFWiki.

@  zephyrX9 : (30 April 2016 - 12:18 AM)

ok so either ages three and up sold out of victorion or their system is confusing so i guess im getting computron instead. rip my dream of ladybots everywhere

@  Summer : (29 April 2016 - 02:07 PM)

The TFWiki Facebook group has long since been abandoned by the actual TFWiki moderators, and there's little to no affiliation with the actual site.

@  Paladin : (29 April 2016 - 07:58 AM)

And it's not like Artist Alley has a long, storied history at FP's BotCon. FP only created an Artist Alley exhibitor package last year. Before that you had to pay full dealer price, which was prohibitively expensive for folks like me to bother with.

Slippery Slope?
What if I can't sell custom painted figures? Retail bought toys, opened and repainted and resold. The difference between this and the tons of opened figures on sale at other tables and booths is the paint.
Another table migh sell you a DotM Voyager Megs opened for $12 but I'll sell the exact same toy as the exact same character all painted up for $60. Where is the problem?

I think you need to ask someone who knows the answer to whether customized toys are passable. I'm pretty sure none of us do.

EDIT: Which is kind of a failing of the dealer guidelines that started this thread. They're incredibly vague and unhelpful.

M S:

I suspect that if asked directly, and an answer were given, that answer would have to be "no, you can't".

The policy is basically "no unofficial anything". The vagueness is probably intentional. The intent is obviously to keep mass-produced TF-related 3P stuff out of the con. FP probably doesn't want the traditional fanstuff swept up in this, because they want their convention to be cool. A convention without Willis selling Dinobot posters or Cheets selling custom figures (I thought you weren't going, CP?) would be measurably less cool. Perhaps not 20%, but measurably.

Unfortunately, the policy probably has to cover that, too, so FP's only recourse is to delay answering any questions, or answer as vaguely as possible, until the convention gets here.

Once the con gets here, no problem. I'm almost willing to bet that if Willis took a ream of Dinobot posters with him, the People in Charge would manage to mysteriously miss his table until they were all sold. Willing to bet $200? Don't know, but I guess it depends on what the going rate is for a Dinobot poster.

The BotCon Twitter said that artists that work for Hasbro licensees are permitted to sell stuff. I am one of those people. I've been told I'm fine.

Even so, if Puggleformers fall under "parody" and are thus safe, I would think a Obama-spoofing Dinobot poster would too. I'd probably be fine regardless.

Supposedly this information was emailed to a TFW staff member within the last hour.

[EDIT]

More info - Link.

Shibura Prime posted saying this was from Fun Pub:
QUOTE
We're pleased to announce, per Hasbro, that artist tables will be allowed at BotCon 2012 as we have allowed it in the past, and will be permissible as part of the show. Hasbro sympathizes and understands fans' discouragement with the previous statements concerning fan art, and while remaining steadfast in the right to protect its IP in regards to unlicensed merchandise, wants to ensure fans can continue to enjoy the BotCon experience which they know is made so great in large part by the fan community.
