    Didn't see a thread for this yet, it's mostly just an announcement of a coming announcement, but maybe a small hint of a toy or two will happen.

    Hopefully we'll know a location soon as well.

    I hope it's a decent theme for BotCon this year that a lot of people will like. Maybe using the original Beast Wars beast forms for the main cast but making them more accurate in paint and head?

    Somebody is hotlinking an image. From what I've heard, Allspark doesn't like that. ;)

    I hope we get some bw neo repaints along with some more obscure g1 goodness!
    Those combined would make an awesome boxed set and exclusives.

    Agreed. I doubt we'll even know the location by December.

    I think Sol Fury said that he thought the image looked like Corhada, maybe we'll get some more BWNeo and BW2 molds repainted, to go with Ultra Mammoth.

    great another announcement about an announcement so that when that announcement happens, it will just be another announcement of that announcement and to still stay tuned for that announcement of the announcement that we originally didnt get.

    I feel like, minus the head, that silhouette is very distinct. Which mold is that?

    Yo dawg, I heard you like announcements, so I'm making this announcement about that announcement, so that you can announce my announcement about the announcement's announcement.

    This is great news for me, since I was already planning on stopping by Dan's booth at the convention anyway. :)

    I really like the idea of more Beast Wars figures - whatever the continuity.

    It's just annoying that we're all gonna be waiting on this announcement and have less than 4-5 months to plan, save, etc.

    Oh well ... I'll complain all I want but I'm still telling myself there's no way I'm missing it.

    I ask this every year but it quickly gets lost in the ocean of threads. Is there a way to order these sets online? I remember I used to have to scan/fax a form years back, but I'm wondering if they now allow us to simply use a credit card and order them?


    Thanks guys!
