    Hmm....if only I could get a Springer, lol. I'm not interested in Huffer, and I'm not going, so, it's going to be hard, and expensive for me to get one. I'll probably just hunt down a CD Hotshot and kitbash it myself, lol.

    I don't think is polite to give away sets of board members without their permission....

    :p

    Nice. Going to have to find a Springer and Huffer set. I could care less about Weirdwolf (never cared for the character), but I definently need to hunt down an Alpha Trion... not sure I really care about the Vector Sigma display either...

    I was afraid of this....
    Any botcon attendees looking to make a little cash off of a Springer, do let me know. I'll pay good money.

    Well, if they follow the same pattern as last year, I guess that means that Classics Elita-1 (the Cyb. Thunderblast remold) will be one of the Collector's Club exclusives for '08.

    Springer is pure awesome. I wouldn't be able to duplicate that in a kitbash myself, lol. It looks like I'll be saving up my money for a while so I can hopefully buy one off of someone.

    Awesome. The attendee exclusives aren't so great, IMO.

    Saves me some cash.

    Wierdwolf is all kinds of awesome!
    Not enough to drop Ebay prices on, but awesome all the same.

    Springer, If it wasnt for the comic and label, I wouldnt look at it and think "Springer", not nearly enough yellow.
    Huffer, meh.

    A3 is awesome, good remold, with Vector Sigma is a plus!

    Even though it's not as amazing as it could be, I NEED that Vector Sigma display thing, I wonder if the key is removable?...

    Hmm.... not bad. But not as cool as I'd hoped. Huffer doesn't quite look like Huffer with those two tones of blue. And Springer bears little resemblance to the original as well.

    Weirdwolf looks great, though.

    I still hope to score a set of these somehow.

    I applaud the attempt, but the colors are off on Huffer and Weirdwolf; More Huffer than Weirdwolf. I guess I am just too much of a stickler for the old school colors. I'm not saying I wouldn't want them in my collection, though. :D
