    Since the 5-piece set includes all of the seekers plus Bugbite, I can't imagine what's going to be the rest of the souvenir toys. We will get an extra piece to the set for attendees, and probably 2 more souvenir toys. I would assume Sunstorm would be the attendee bonus figure, but then what else is left...?

    I'm still hoping for the popular Seaspray/Huffer/Beachcomber ideas. Seeing as how the box is all Cons, seems plausible that the attendee exclusives would tilt toward Bots. Last year's attendee exclusives were entirely different molds from those in the set save for the Tigatron freebie, unlike 2005 when ALL the attendee molds were repaints of stuff in the set. Of course, that implies the freebie is a repaint of something in the set...Sunstorm maybe?

    Your guess is as good as mine. I like that Seaspray / Huffer / Beachcomber idea, those three Cybertron Basics do lend themselves to it. I'd be quite happy if that was the case.

    At any rate, I'm shooting for all the exclusives on my Botcon trip so hopefully I'll be able to get them.

    anyone know how much they go for?

    and also is it just a matter of going to the booth and buying one?

    i dont think i care about the attendee exclusive, but if they bust out a figure like megatron was last year......i want, i think

    Yeah, maybe I read it wrong then.
    But Tap Out and Glyph would be more likely, as they are just simple repaints of Bumblebee.

    Well, if the past two years are anything by which to go, we'll get the attendee freebie plus 4 more figures.

    '05: Flamewar (freebie), Virulent Clone x2, Ratchet, Flareup
    '06: Unit 2 a.k.a. Tigatron (freebie), Megatron, Waspinator, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw

    Maybe, but the freebies have been Basics so far. (I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see Sunstorm somewhere in the extras, though.) The only Classics Basics from which to choose are the Mini-Con teams. Perhaps the Dinobot Team in G1 Dinobot colors? If not from Classics, then Huffer (from Cyb Armorhide), Seaspray (from Shortround), or Beachcomber (from Cyb Hardtop) would be good possibilities.

    Larger toy ideas for the add-on sets:
    - Cyb Downshift as Wheeljack
    - Cyb Crosswise as Jazz
    - Sunstorm, as mentioned
    - Classics OP as Scourge/Nemesis Prime or (preferably) Motormaster/Menasor
    - Classics Jetfire as Darkwing? (since we're getting Dreadwind)

    No idea for this year's, of course, but:

    '05
    - Ratchet & Flareup (Deluxe & Basic, both with new heads that were also used in the box set, plus new mold weapon for Ratchet) -- $65
    - Virulent Clones x2 (2 Basics w/o new parts) -- $35

    '06
    - Megatron & Waspinator (Ultra & Basic, one new head not used elsewhere) -- $96
    - Laserbeak & Buzzsaw (2 Basics w/o new parts) -- $46 (I think)

    I would love for them to do a silver, black, and red Megs as the bigger scale guy.

    Other options could be generic (green, etc) cannon fodder seekers or a grey Astrotrain.

    The new Decepticon leader has gotta be Prime painted as Nemesis Prime or Megatron painted as Galvatron. Nemesis Prime has really been overdone this year so I'm betting Galvatron will be it.

    I think we can count on repaints of Rodimus and Mirage. Probably another seeker or two as well. I would be very surprised if we didn't see Sunstorm.

    I'm gonna go with Shockwave from Megs, Sunstorm, and the free figure being Huffer or Seaspray.

    Possibly Motormaster/Menasor Prime.

    Wow... assuming there will be a Sunstorm and some larger Decepticon leader figure, Botcon is going to leave the Classics Autobots insanely outnumbered. Makes me think that maybe Sunstorm won't show up after all, just to make room for another Autobot.
