    The botcon website updated with what looks to be the new 2007 logo for the convention. On the logo is a sillouette, could be a hint at one of the exclusives? Although, I don't think any character on the past logos where exclusives.

    Sorry if this is old news.

    Yup, sillouette of Classics Prime.

    Didn't last year's logo feature G1 Red Alert? At least this one fits the apparent theme of the exclusives and story behind 'em.

    I think we were told none of the exclusives would be primarily black, so Nemisis would be out.
    I think the silhouette is purely to go with the fact that the convention is Classics-themed this year. Perhaps the tagline does mean we're getting some Movie inspired Classics to go with the pre-movie ones already released.

    I believe they can only use toolings Hasbro has recently used and are still in factories.

    The storyline this year is supposed to take place where the G1 Marvel storyline left off so I am sure that Prime is in the story.

    Assuming the Classics released are their versions in this story, the main thought I get from that:

    Two pack Megatron as Bludgeon? That seems painfully obvious now. Where the Marvel G1 finished, Bludgeon was in control of the Decepticons. Megatron was lost on Earth somewhere, so presumably if we're following on right after issue #80, Bludgeon would need to be addressed. The mold lends itself to Bludeon, all that would really be needed perhaps would be a slight remold of the face. But a straight repaint would work, especially if the helmet were painted crimson and the face bone white.

    I dont understand why someone would draw a link between the logo and the exclusives... Last years logo certainly had nothing to do with the toys.

    It's either that, or Bludgeon as Cyb. Unicron. That mold works better than 2-pack Megatron IMO, and is recent enough to consider.

    If they go with the fanart that Josh did of the mold in Bludgeon colors I will be very happy indeed.

    Until I see the price for the set.

    I won't be able to afford them for a long time whatever they are so I hope it's not Thundercracker, Thurst, or Dirge.
