    So with Botcon so close we still only know what the boxset figures at botcon will be but not the freebies or anything else. Has anyone heard any rumours or whispers as to what we can expect from the other 5 figures? (2x 2pks and 1x freebie)

    The rumored figures were as follows:

    Free Toy for Primus package:
    Toxitron - Voyager Optimus Prime (no remold)

    And the rest of the con exclusives:
    Troop builder 3 pack of Autotroopers - Deluxe class Ironhide or Ratchet body
    Shattered Glass Galvatron - from Evac mold/remold
    Ironfist - Ironhide (unknown if this is from Classics Ironhide or TFA Ironhide)
    Animated G2 Sideswipe - BotCon TFA Dead End mold used again
    Actionmaster Thundercracker - assuming from Classics Seeker (Starscream) mold

    taken from: Rumor: list of possible remaining BotCon 2011 exclusives

    Out of curiosity, what do con exclusives usually go for (at the con) and how do you pay for them?

    I would like to know about payment as well. I'd hate to have to bring that much cash to a convention.

    The past couple years getting all of the exclusives cost around $225 give or take and depending on the tax rate. You can pay with cash or credit card at the designated times that they are for sale on the schedule.

    Incidentally, although this is indeed the rumor list as it was originally given, there is an increasing consensus that the Animated G2 Sideswipe would be from the BotCon TFA Breakdown mold, not Dead End (which if true, should have said TFA Jazz mold, anyway, as Dead End isn't even remolded).

    I don't think a voyager mold will be the free one. Have they ever had a free voyager before? Seems worth too much just to give away. Think Deluxe mold.

    If that does end up being the list of exclusives at this year's BotCon, then I won't feel bad about not being able to buy any.

    I think the original info-rumor post said Sideswipe and Toxitron might be switched, making 'Swipe the freebie, which probably is more likely.

    As it stood, the only ones I was even contemplating chasing down would be the SGG and TC set, since I'm in love with the Evac mold and I love all classics repaints. Now there's a possibility that the Ironfist is possibly based on Universe Ironhide? Oy vey...

    Last year, the Rapido/Cindersaur 2-pack was $72, Scorch/Double Punch 2-pack (including SG ravage) was $79, and the Sharkticon 3-pack was $59

    I would expect this years exclusives to have a slight mark-up by approximately $5-10 per set, but they may not be too much higher than that. The club store is probably the only place at the 'con that you would want to use your CC, otherwise you will want to use cash in the dealer room. If you plan on spending money in the dealer room, I would advise you bring as much cash as you are wanting to spend, as I can guarantee that the ATMs will run dry pretty early.

    The WTF@TFW podcast about Botcon is very good for more tips like this and I advise anyone who is going to listen to it :2c:

    Probably because no one knows for sure yet and if they do, it's not time to tell us. ;)

    yeah, i was just thinking about this... last year there were plenty of leaked photos of the extras... haven't seen a peep.

    i am all over the rumored SG Galvatron mold even though i'm sure the custom one autobotx23 made for me has it beat.

    universe springer/cybertron evac

    Pretty certain it is Animated. The Autotrooper head looks extremely similar to Iron Fist's.
