    Checking out Twitter this morning I saw this by the very reliable S250! https://twitter.com/s250/status/10724447934
    In it he says: Classics Prowl repaint as G2 Rapido....BotCon. I'm pretty excited by the news! This will be my first Botcon and some if the toys I remember were my weirdo G2 toys! Mods close this if it is a duplicate.

    Note that S250 has already responded to a follow-up question stating that it's only a rumor to him as well. So, at this time it's still a second-hand rumor.

    G2 is always a win, but I guess I'll have to commission Diaclone-repaint classics from one of our Radicons.

    Interesting. This G2 theme has me really interested in the botcon set. This will be my first year too.

    Altered the title to inform people this is all rumor, so as not to enter the discussion under the wrong impression.

    Huh. I can see this working very, very well as a straight repaint since Rapido has a bit of the headcrest that Prowl has.

    If these rumors hold any truth, Botcon or otherwise, I'll be so happy that I'll slap Foster.

    I'm not even going, and I'd slap Foster upon hearing this news.

    I thought I read something about the G2 possibility for Botcon figures a few months back. Anyone else remember reading something similar to this?

    Great choice for a mold! Rapido rules! And maybe we can get some Hooligan and Skram up in here too!

    That's been the forerunner of rumors for a good while now. This is different in that it seems to focus on a particular figure concept.
