Wednesday update:

New character, vendor list, hotel update, & 40th anniversary tease
BotCon 2024 Wednesday Roundup!
Our weekly roundup one day early because… reasons!
* First up, The Courtyard by Marriott is SOLD OUT. We will be opening another block at their partner hotel, the Hampton. Right next door. The rooms will go fast so make your reservation as soon as the block goes live tomorrow!
* BotCon ‘24 Vendor list. We already have more vendors signed up for this year than each of the previous two years! We expect a fully sold out exhibitor hall in Ft. Wayne Indiana June 27-30. Check out your first look at the Vintage and Modern retailers that will be on site at the show!
* NEW Transformers Animated??? Fans have been wondering who the new Transformers Animated character is from last weeks update. Let’s be clear, there was only one Derrick J. Wyatt. We would never attempt a new design because if it’s not from Derrick (or by extension his former Hasbro peeps) it’s not ‘Animated’. That said, he was always very receptive to the BotCon repaints of his models in to new characters. In fact he was a key part in both the BotCon 2011 set and Timelines Issue 6: The Stunti-Con Job. Featuring Dead End from Jazz, Drag Strip from Arcee, and of course Toxitron from Optimus Prime.
So while the team leader for our group of misfits hasn’t been announced yet, that leader does have a second in command. And she has close ties to Toxitron as well. With the help from Trusted Transformers Animated artist Josh Perez, we bring you the newest BotCon Animated character - Number 2! She along with her cohorts will be featured on an ALL-NEW BotCon Transformers Animated T-Shirt and Poster!
* As far as the ‘reasons’ we mentioned earlier? Tomorrow, prepare to see an image like you have never seen before. And then at BotCon ‘24, let’s just say that any kid from the 80’s is going to feel like they stepped in to a time machine when they see what is planned for an exhibit/sale. Fans and collectors are not ready for this reveal!
Daily, Weekend, or Premium Pass available via
Check out for additional information and updates. We hope to see you this June 27-30th in Fort Wayne, Indiana!
NOTE: Early Bird Pin - EVERYONE that registers by April 21st will get an exclusive collectible pin. This pin is one of a series of EIGHT different pins, so if you want to get the whole set at BotCon make sure you get signed up by April 21st!

Exclusive reveals! Neat that they're at least semi-official, but I was kinda enjoying the 52Toys offerings, TBH.
BotCon ‘24 Yolopark Transformers EXCLUSIVE - Delta Magnus Vs Sunstorm.
This 2 figure “House of Magnus” AMK Transformers BotCon Vs set is included with ALL Premium packages.
Stay tuned for a week full of reveals as we announce our artist alley lineup, additional details on various BotCon events, and the BotCon ‘24 Badge/Lanyard, Exclusive Pin Set, and 24x36 Animated Poster.
Visit for all the show info! BotCon ‘24 June 27-30 Fort Wayne, Indiana. Kids 12 & Under are FREE!









Continuity Nutcase
Is it wrong for me to think this is promising?
I think this is probably as close to getting back to being official as can possibly be done for the time being. It allows BotCon to sell actual licensed Transformers merchandise again, but without having to go through all the bureaucracy of working directly with Hasbro proper.

We'll also have to wait and see if the convention comic for this year is likewise a licensed work of Transformers media, or if it's just a story written without any license attached to it like how the BeastBox comics from the last two years were.
