    Griffin of the ozformers message board has just posted pics of the pre-registration box set, including internal contents and the tech specs with the promise of more photos to come. Pictures are available in his forum post at http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?p=19151#post19151 though it would be great if someone could mirror them.

    just like last years. I'm not mirroring those, because we will get much better pictures soon.

    Anybody read the tech specs yet? "Autobot Seeker Drench"! The original name lives on! These are quite creative and while some quotes are a bit iffy, they're still very appropriate reversals of the originals. Oh, and Sparks are called Embers in this universe, a minor and unexpected touch.

    Bleh... the more I see of this set the more interested I am in it. Damn... looks like I may be getting these off of eBay. Doubtful it'll see the crazy prices last years set saw though.

    I truly don’t care about most of the set only toys I want from botcon are; that Prime, Rodimus, and maybe Blurr.

    The techsepcs are nice but not worth $500+

    I don't care so much about the toys or the decos, but after reading those, the story interests me a bit.

    Where are you coming up w/ the $500 price tag? You had a chance at ordering the set for $280 (assuming you're a club member) that everyone else had.

    Moving on...I like the final product. I wish I could've gone as well, but getting a huge promotion @ work a week before the convention...just wasn't a wise decision to take vacation so early. That said, I can't wait for my non-attendee set to arrive. Now I gotta hope my good buddy is able to come through for me and nab the other exclusives.

    Going off the current eBay auctions of BINs.

    Yeah I didn’t have the money when the preorder came out and when I did they were sold out.

    Credit cards are what got me into this predicament :eek: 

    Working for yourself is both cool and crappy simultaneously.
