    What would people like like to see for 2012?

    We have animated this year, which i,ll be honest, is not as bad as I thought, hence why its not in this poll. lol.

    Happy voting! And if u want to vote then give us ur ideal characters from said vote on here, i,m happy to here all :D

    It wouldn't matter to me what the exclusive figures were, I'd be happy if it was held in the midwest. I'm getting kinda bummed that Botcon always seems to be either on the East coast or the West coast.

    I've voted Wreckers, because lets face it, their the Transformers answer to the Expendables. :) 

    Impactor, Twin Twist, Top Spin, Broadside, Sandstorm and Whirl are all musts.

    I leave out Springer simply because he's been in one botcon, and Roadbuster because their is a decent version of him out already if you can get the upgrade. :)

    This. I would like it if BotCon gets held somewhere within the Midwest in 2012.

    I voted Takara because I'd love to see Gripper, Flame and Lightspeed get some love. Repaint Classics Jetfire as Cloudburst.

    I'd really like to see Micromasters. We've gotten some nice homages in recent years such as Flak, Countdown, Treadbolt and 3rd Party Growl and Vanquish.

    My repaint suggestions would be:

    War Within Starscream as Whisper, Groundbreaker and Storm Cloud.
    Classics Rodimus or Generations Windcharger as Blackjack.
    Energon Kickback as Sidetrack.
    Wouldn't mind clip on heads for Encore Ratchet and Ironhide to make them Fixit and Tote.
    Generations G2 Optimus Prime as Powertrain and Ironworks.
    Classics Powerglide as Tailwind and Hot House.
    Classics Seeker mold as Nightflight.

    Voted Squadren X because I have no idea what it is.

    This amuses me as I have zero chance of making it to Botcon.

    Right, I'm off to search TF Wiki for Squadren X.

    Squadren X are the counterpoint to the Wreckers, look up Last Stand Of The Wreckers, and that shuld help. :)

    If the con is held anywhere near Texas, Wreckers. Anywhere else, I don't give a damn.


    Just watch, it'll be in North Dakota next year. [/bitter]

    my gawd, funpub is located IN fort worth texas, but every botcon after 2005 has completely ignored the group of people in this part of the country, it is about damn time it got away from the east and west coast, have it accessible for ONCE to those of us that live in the middle of the country (if you say ohio is the middle of the country, nope, that is basically east coast, only kentucky was at least close enough to be a bit reasonable, still more east coast though)

    i'm praying this is the year for us middle guys, cause we've been the ones screwed over, with it jumping back and forth from east to west coast like crazy

    People on the East Coast will tell you Ohio in the Midwest, but that is for a different thread. I agree that Botcon needs to be in the middle next year, since quite a few fans I know can't afford to drive/fly to RI or CA every year.

    Ha, well that's what I'm hoping for! I'm too young to travel to Botcon by myself and my parents wouldn't take me.

    I voted Wreckers, but I'd be totally down for an RID set as well.

    Since Diaclone was not on the list ( what I really want ), then I'll vote Headmasters. My Hardhead needs companionship.
