    Which toys would you like them to make that they didn't. I would love to get my hands on that Hot Spot. Pure love when I saw it at Hasbro last year. I wouldn't mind a Devcon figure too. He is long overdue to have a figure made.

    Man, I would have actually tracked down that RID HotSpot/Defensor if it had been released...

    I, too, would've loved Hot Spot/Defensor. Brawn and Roadbuster, as well.

    The others I could take or leave.

    Another vote here for Defensor and Brawn. Oh well, I guess the 2005 Fallback'll do for now...

    Stop bringing up Botcon Defensor! It makes me depressed everytime I think about it.

    I can't believe we didn't get that Hot Spot. Last year was the first time I sprung for TF exclusive figures. Hot Spot would have have coerced me to dish out the money.

    Didn't really care about Defensor as much as I did for that remolded head + repaint of RID Galvatron as BW Megatron.

    He was gonna have the duck damnit.

    Optimal Rodimus, the Megatron re-deco, Devcon, and Hotspot would havel all been toys I would like. Oh well...there's always a chance. Anyone know if that Hotspot idea would be copyrighted/ trademarked, or in any other way prevented from being done by FP?

    Definitely Devcon.

    I don't really pine for any of the others--but I didn't get so much into the fandom/convention part of Transformers until 2004, so I might not be as nostalgic for 'em.

    This is what I want:

    Blue Balls Attack Team, from an anecdote shared by Karl Hartman on the now defunct BotCon Beyond message board, a planning session for BotCon had run much later than anticipated and an exhausted Hartman proposed a pair of blue repaints of Beast Wars Retrax. Obviously not a serious proposal.

    So, is it official? He was named Devcon? Because I always have and I always will say Defcon. Anyways, I would love a figure of him done.


    And....a total :wtf:  to "Blue Balls Attack Team". :lol
