    They are? I don't see 'em. EDIT: Wait. There they are on the left. I was looking for an update in the main column.

    I know what I'm doing first thing Monday morning -- cursing at the fax in my office for being too slow.

    EDIT 2: Uh oh. Prepare for mass gnashing of teeth. And if Dreadwind is a Classics Jetfire redeco with new head, I TOTALLY called that for the best reuse of the mold.

    EDIT 3: I guess everyone else is either still reading the brochure, or scrambling for a fax. Hasbro Tour FTW! Interesting way to do the movie screening. I'm in!

    Sun-of-a...

    so white BB mold, Ramjet as Dirge and Starscream as Thundercracker....

    will they do new wings for Thrust? (that'd move the set from a probably buy to a must buy)

    .....now, what will the use for Dreadwind....

    Very, very upset that the club has been allowed to have the other seekers as exclusives, particularily as part of a large set full of other stuff that many people would not want.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    ... Curse you Botcon. Now I will not complete my Seekers collection. I can't justify (yet) over 200$ for 5 Transformers.

    I knew it would happen. It's gonna cost me $300 to complete my seeker collection. At least they put them all in the box set so I wouldn't have to pay even more for the attendee only exclusives to get them. Let the bitching and moaning commence...

    I think it's gotta be Classics Jetfire.

    Wish they hadn't put these up on the weekend. I may go open my office tonight just to use the fax....

    thoughts on Dreadwind: Jetfire with new small head? (<--i'm betting- wasn't G1 Dreadwind a swing-wing et?) Cyb Soundwave with new head???

    hmmm, nope just looked a TFU and that was Darkwing.... but Dreadwind has more the correct body configuration in Bot mode, so that's what i'm bettin' (Cl. Jetfire mold)

    Botcon 07 set REVEALED!!

    All the details in the Botcon 2007 brochure on the Botcon site. Set looks nice if you want to complete your Seekers: Thundercracker, Dirge, Thrust, Dreadwind, and the mysterious new Bugbite!

    Great, the seekers are exclusives.

    Thanks a lot Hasbro, for ruining Classics for me.

    The seekers aren't surprising, at least they're all in the boxset so they can be bought in one shot. Hopefully Dreadwind will be the Jetfire mold, good choice if it is. Bugbite, interesting, can't wait to hear more about him! I'm wondering what the seperate pieces are gonna be now, Autobots perhaps?
