    so, i was looking through the collections page, and saw DON had posted his collection...and its impressive as hell...but then i noticed his avatar...

    i think it looks like the energon megatron mold, with a new head...is this our first look at botcon's final exclusive? is it a sneaky way to drop the news without most people noticing?

    Dang, I kept trying to figure out who that was, never even seeing the blatantly obvious RED DECEPTICON SYMBOL on the chest... bluh, how did I miss that?

    His collection is very impressive. :)  The avatar does look very much like Megatron, and the red Decepticon symbol does reinforce the idea. I do notice that the character has blue optics as well. I wonder what color Megatron's weapons will be.

    Megatron is supposedly silver and black, with the clear bits being blue.

    I've blown up the picture, and, if you look close enough, there is something blue in the (facing the computer) lower left corner of the picture. There is also some blue in the upper right corner as well. The face does seem somewhat young as well, which would match what the Botcon brochure said in its description.

    As Lumpy said just Sideswipe's Mini-Con. I'm hoping his name will be Vangaurd. :D 

    Edit--I just also noticed....if this is Megatron...he has a black helmet. I wonder if this was done in honor of the early Megatron artwork that featured him with a black helmet.

    I doubt that it would be this mold, but I kinda of see Incinerator. Probably just the drawing.

    Yeh, it probably is Sideswipe's minicon.

    Here's something that's bugging me, though, guys and gals. They're calling him Sideswipe and the Taobao version we've seen now has the purple autobot symbol?

    Yeah he's Sideswipe, and the purple Autobot symbol is crossed out and replaced by a red decepticon symbol. Effectively, he's saying, "I renounce my evil Autobot ways in favor of support of the heroic Decepticon ideal!"

    you dont have to be a member to see the preview...and after the con, they release a special version of the comic with a new cover that you can buy at your LCS, that way you arent stealing the comics by just reading a scan...
