    Uh, gotta cry foul on this one without sources, picture, or proof of any kind... not to mention the complete randomness of the colors and molds that make no sense.

    Really? Because I heard the set was going to include voyager animated cybertron optimus prime painted hot pink, cal-trans orange, with brown highlights. My friend told me that.

    I may be crazy but I have a hunch it may be legit. Who knows, only time will tell. I'm usually wrong about these things anyways....lol

    Could be legit. I find it interesting that this person only recently joined (on the surface, for the sole purpose of posting this). Also that his grammar is somewhat terrible and that he has Convoy as his favorite on his profile.

    So it is POSSIBLE that he is from Asia and has a connection at the factory, but very unlikely.

    Well..... no sources / pictures means nobody has to believe it, though it doesn't mean he's lying either so play nice until we know for sure.

    I would like to point out that a classics prime in black and purple smells of a Menasor or Motormaster repaint which is totally Hasbros M.O.

    And strangely enough...I would so totally buy that to display.

    Nah...not a chance in hell it's legit. Just look at Brawl and all the "inside info" regarding who is/isn't in the game. And also notice how on forums dedicated to such discussion...the vast vast majority of the people making such claims are new accounts.

    Not that you'd believe someone like me if I came up and said the Botcon Classics Prime was going to be painted like Turbomaster Thunderclash because a friend told me. :rolleyes:

    well, the mold choices all seem like they are too big also....most exclusives dont have that many molds of that size....

    We'll see. "My friend said...." stories from new members are almost always false though

    One voyager and four deluxes doesn't seem too odd to me.

    I know I shouldn't be expecting repaints of the movie or animated toys, but thinking of seeing classics and Cybertron exclusives at Botcon isn't all that appealing...

    Last year's had 4 deluxes and 1 voyager. According to this guys CLAIM, there would be 3 deluxes and 2 voyagers.

    So it's not that much of a stretch. Plus, to be fair, Classics Prime is a small voyager.

    So I wouldn't say rule it out based on what he said, but I'm also not saying that you should accept what he said as truth either.
