    that would be the best box set ever

    making the nemesis prime/scourge version of RTS prime a botcon exclusive is just cruel

    Probably a lot of mold use from the current RTS and Generations lines. Animated was a great breather to allow new molds to come into play. Although another year of Animated I wouldn't turn down.

    Unless I missed something that was announced this year, FunPub can't touch the Movie lines because Paramount owns those designs. Hasbro can't lend them off to FunPub.

    I thought this was brought up long ago.

    It will be the ultimate Wheelie and Bumblebee edition with Voyager Galvatron.

    Animated Deluxe BB in movie yellow colors and black stripes
    Animated Deluxe BB in all black with yellow stripes (stealth BB)
    Animated Deluxe Wheelie in G1 Colors using Animated Deluxe BB mold
    Animated Deluxe Wheelie TF 2 Movie Blue using Animated Deluxe BB mold
    Animated Voyager Galvatron in G1 Galvatron colors using Animated Voyager Megatron mold. Galvatron defected to the Autobot side.

    :p 

    Honestly, I don't know what 2012 will bring, but I really hope it will be at least as good as the 2011 set. :)

    I know I might regret this since I'm a huge fan of the Jap line, and I'll probably have to shell out if they do become Botcon exclusives, but it'd be nice to see Masterforce or Victory as a Botcon series.

    Yes :)  I've seen some customs already redoing Jetfire as Star Saber. Could work :)  You can turn some of the Autobot cars into the other Brainmasters, Astrotrain into Galaxy Shuttle, the minicons into the Victory Micromasters, hell you could even use some of the Energon TFs' combine ability and use them as Landcross component bots who had similar abilities. Come to think of it, we've already gotten Leozack and Deathsaurus as previous Botcon exclusives, would be nice to have something to partner with em :) 

    Damn, I've said too much already haven't I?

    Too early to say, but I want a classics wreckers set. I'm not sure what molds they'd use, but that would be awesome. That'd be a day 1 purchase.

    I've got some more :)  You could use the POC Dinobot Team as Dinoking, and maybe some of the other Seekers/Thunderwing as the rest of Leozack's squad.

    Also corrected my earlier post, should've been Landcross not Road Caesar.

    I hope my ideas don't come back to bite my wallet in the ass next year :D

    Id like them all to be something very unified. So you want ever one of the freebies, troopers, packs, custum, and the set. Get a nice large group that looks well together.

    I'm calling it right now. Protectobots from classics molds. I'd love a Hotspot recolor of the Inferno mold with a new head.

    Hm, wonder if that means they'll do another Blades :p 

    Speaking of Inferno, I wonder how he'd look as an RID Prime. We've already got Sideburn, maybe we can get a Sunstreaker/Sideswipe Prowl and a Ratchet/Ironhide X-Brawn. Of course then we could see the G2 Prime as Scourge. The Preds would be a lot harder to translate though, not to mention Megatron/Galvatron.

    Yeah, I can see them doing a RID themed set. I just hope Scourge isn't part of it. I'd much rather get it at retail. And I really think that will happen. I mean Hasbro would make way more money by releasing it at retail.
