    Unless I'm reading the botcon site incorrectly, the convention is in like 2 weeks. So....where are the toys? Has it ever been this close to botcon with no leaked toy pics/auctions?

    Are you talking about the exclusives? If so, the official reveals were some time ago.

    Yes, the souvenir figures are rarely confirmed early. Rumors abound though!

    Talking about the attendee exclusive packs. I know about the box set. I've searched news/rumors unsuccessfully for the exclusive packs, can you post a link?

    Rumors:

    Attendee bonus: Animated Toxitron(repaint of An.Voyager OP)

    Souvenir sets:
    #1 Animated "G2" Sideswipe(repaint of Breakdown, Cheetor's partner) & Animated Ironfist(Ironhide with new head)

    #2 3-pack Animated Autotroopers(Ironhide repaint... with the new head?)

    #3 Non-Animated figures: Actionmaster Thundercracker(Classics Starscream repaint) & Shattered Glass Galvatron(Cyb. Evac repaint)

    Toxitron & Sideswipe might possibly swap slots.

    I keep hoping that Ratrap on a swindle body we saw in the comic happens.

    I was personally hoping for the cancelled waspinator bumblebee, but i guess that isn't very likely, huh?

    I don't think so. I don't think Fun Pub would have wanted to do anything Hasbro was planning in case Hasbro ever decided to release them for whatever reason.

    It does seem weird that Botcon is only 2 short weeks away & none of these bonus figures have popped up yet. Thinking back to the lead-up to past Botcons, The bonus figures would have been all over the net by now. Have FunPub cracked down hard or is everything under a firm lock-n-key? What is going on... :confused:

    I'm looking forward to seeing any previews Hasbro gives. Hopefully a lot of stuff from the DOTM line we have yet to see.

    I don't expect Toxitron to be in one of the two packs. Since it's the freebie, I'm guessing they let DJW do whatever he wanted. Which means Toxitron will probably look something like this.

    I'm really hoping that they lay off the Classics molds for at least one Botcon. This rare crap is a real pain to track down.

    It's harder to track down when it doesn't exist at all.

    It is strange that we've only seen Drag Strip and Wildrider leaked... We'll probably see a deluge of leaks the week before.

    And it's harder for a completist to obsess over something that doesn't exist at all. I was just rather hoping that this year's Botcon wouldn't provide yet another fig I can't get at the convention only to have the price inflate way past what it should for a figure as new as it is.


    Which begs the question: why aren't the older Botcon toys worth more? I got the RID Sideswipe and Sunstreaker remolds for $20 each, why don't those shoot up yet something as ridiculous as SG Roddy shoots past $500?
