    I recieved this in my inbox from 2005 Boards member Dechirant. He previously posted images of the Pre-Beast Wars Megatron, among others. More info as it comes in.

    That looks pretty cool, any clues on who the character is?

    I agree. If it is an exclusive (which is highly possible IMO; same mould as Cheetor), it's definitely Tigatron. And may I just say... Sweeeet.

    Yup, Tigertron. I like the colors alot for this mold. A repaint of a retooled repaint. How far will it go?

    Did we ever get any word on whether the Divebomb repaints were actually BC exclusives or not?

    I think they were just canned Energon Repaints possibly meant for a two pack in Universe of something.

    Has anyone actually contacted Botcon to see if the figures we've seen that havent been confirmed are official figures, e.g.
    Megs
    Waspy (I still dont believe he's Botcon, he doesnt have a CyberKey, so hes the odd one out)
    Tigatron

    -_- I wasn't impressed with the repaints for the set anyhow, so this isn't all that much of a let down...still...for that kind of cash, I'd really like to be wowed.

    They wont answer that...anything other than the boxset is supposed to be a "surprise" for attendees.

    Why not? Wasn't he another Cybertronian in a stasis pod before he was formatted into the white tiger? So he must of looked different before he looked like a tiger. Cool repaint by the way.

    I'm sure it's just meant as a fun bonus.

    I would have to agree. Based on that idea, Tigatron could look like anything they wanted.

    I'm sorry Fun Publications, Master Collector and fans from The Collectors' Club Council, but this sucks.

    I dreaded Tigatron being one of BC06's exclusives. It's not only that to some BW fans (myself included), Tigatron didn't have a pre-earth mode because he was "born" on Earth, but also because in the animation he was actually bigger than Cheetor, and not a fast character. Now he's supposed to have a Speed Planet originated alt-mode, who's also a basic? No sir, I don't like it.

    And before anyone comes and "corrects" my rant, I know it makes perfect sense for FP to "milk" Cheetor's new head by producing another character with it, but I still don't have to like the rationale behind its creation.

    Will I get it? If it's the free figure, of course. If it's not, probably. After all it's a cool looking toy and a Botcon Exclusive, but I wish this "exclusive's slot" (so to speak) would've been assigned to another character.

    I doubt the Botcon guys would either confirm or deny such claims. Remember they are trying to "surprise" the fandom with those extra exclusives.

    Waspinator doesn't have a key because it's not based on a Cybertron mold.

    This is what I am lead to believe. Keep in mind that none of this is confirmed:

    - Regular pack
    1x Optimus Primal (Crumplezone)
    1x Dinobot (Hoist)
    1x Rhinox (Landmine)
    1x Rattrap (Ransack)
    1x Cheetor (Clocker)

    Freebie
    1x Tigatron (Clocker)

    Bonus Packs
    1x Megatron (CDF Red Alert), 1x Waspinator (G2 Cyber Jet)
    1x Energon Divebomb (red), 1x Energon Divebomb (gold)

    I doubt the Waspinator repaint of the G2 cyberjet was real (you can tell by the head) and the Energon divebomb repaints seeing as all other BotCon were Cybertron molds.
