    Oh god.

    The Botcon Figure Set description mentions a Sky-Bite.

    If it turns out to be an Energon Sharkticon repaint, I will love all things Botcon and Hasbro. Forever.

    And Clench is in the box-set too, along with Streetwise (obviously a Universe 2.0 Prowl redeco).

    Looks like a real winner this year!

    I so want to go to KSC, however I don't know if I can eat the extra day vacation and trip cost if we can't get our flights changed for cheap.

    the set is (including molds of my guesses):
    Autobots:
    Spark (universe inferno)
    Streetwise (universe prowl)

    Decepticons:
    Clench (universe onslaught)
    Breakdown (universe sideswipe)

    Predacons:
    Sky-byte (energon sharkticon)


    just with Clench ALONE, i need this botcon set more than anything

    and sweet black police car

    Honestly, if Sky-Byte is an Energon Sharkticon redeco (and... I have a hard time thinking what else it might be), I hope they switch the colors around more, add something new and maybe a little more "G2-ish". Sharkticon already has a Sky-Byte-esque color scheme.

    Streetwise! Awesome. Looks like the price is up slightly and they're definitely encouraging people to join the Club with that non-member price of $375.

    My girlfriend was just independently browsing the Botcon site and alerted me to the brochure being up. She's good.

    EDIT: Ah, so they're going to be having a Hall of Fame induction ceremony? Hilariously neat.

    Aw frig, they DID put Clench in the set.
    Looks like I've gotta get $305 together.

    I love the fact that Graduation is coming up, sure i can't get a non-attendee set paid for in time, but i can purchase the thing off of ebay for a decent price with money i get from gifts

    What if Streetwise is a Red Alert re-redeco? I'd like another Lambo police car.

    I hope with Skybyte there might be room for one or two more non-g2 characters.

    ...like a g1 repaint of Breakdown as an attendee figure. I hope :)

    'Bout time!!

    That would seem to be the most likely mold choice. As much as I love Sharkticon, I'm kinda disappointed 'cause I was hoping to someday see that mold repainted as Krok. Sure, the presence of Breakdown shows that FP is willing to reuse molds, but remolding Sideswipe as G2 Breakdown was absolutely begging to happen, so I doubt FP will do that kind of thing more except in situations that are similarly exceptional.

    Still, overall it's good news! I wonder if Streetwise is going to be a Prowl repaint. It would make sense considering the alt mode, and I'm guessing he'll be black and red to match his unreleased G2 toy. And does that mean that the rumored Rapido might be the attendee figure? Regardless, I can't wait to see more of the exclusives revealed, especially Clench!

    Wow...that certainly could've been a lot more G2. I don't mind Sky Byte, I would've preferred he be tossed into a souvenir set instead though.
