BotCon 2013 and TCC News Round-Up!

{mosimage} The last couple days have been filled with news and announcements from BotCon 2013 and the Transformers Collectors' Club. First some Club news:

The [Subscription Service] figures have shipped from the factory to the packaging company! Yea! We have been waiting just like you since January for this to FINALLY happen. According to the current schedule, it looks like the first figures will ship after BotCon. […] For those of you who paid by installment, once the figures are here, we will schedule when the next two installments will be billed. You will also need to contact Admin (phone 817-448-9863) to make any CC changes if your Club Membership has lapsed. Please do not send Credit Card information by email as that creates a security issue.

Also:

I hate to say it but it looks like this year's membership figure won't ship until after BotCon as they are coming with the FSS figures. These have now shipped from the manufacturer and are at the packaging vendor.

Now for BotCon:

We have now moved an allotment of attending BotCon sets to the non-attending Iacon category. If you have been waiting, you can now go and order your Iacon set using the registration link.

[…]

I do want to let you know that there will be carded version of Depth Charge you will be able to order once they arrive. We plan to have some available at BotCon. The bulk of the carded figures will be left in Fort Worth for the membership to order. In addition, since this is a club figure and NOT a BotCon figure, the Golden Ticket additional limits to not count for this item. 

Lastly, an announcement about the Artist Alley:

Fun Publications, Inc., licensee for Hasbro’s official Transformers Collectors’ Convention, BotCon, is excited to announce that this year's award-winning convention is set to feature its largest Artist Alley ever! With so many amazing artists appearing at BotCon, being held at the Town and Country Resort from June 27th thru June 30th in the beautiful city of San Diego, fans from around the world will get to meet and buy art from some of the best professional artists working on Transformers today!
