    Perhaps a Takara Tomy exclusive, Gentei, based on the chrome hood and spoiler. A Botcon exclusive would have had the G2 Autobot symbol.

    That looks sweet, but if it's a Gentei, then I'm not going to be able to afford it.

    Could it be a Botcon item?

    Unless, of course, it's meant as a continuation of the Games of Deception set, like Elita-One last year. Bugbite's pal Glyph, back for revengance?

    Like the colors. And that's a great figure. Can always have more of BB molds.

    I don't know if I'd pay Gentei prices for that, but I definitely dig the colors.

    Sorry guys, unless my mastery of Cantonese went down the toilet, that's just a custom.

    edit - Actually no one over at ACToys knows what this is. One of them says its a KO but he's not entirely sure.

    Lovely.

    Interesting. The mold definitely looks nice in those colors, but it's hard to say where it might be coming from. The chrome makes me think Takara, but you never know, Hasbro might be getting back into it. If it's Hasbro's, and a part of the Generations line, I'll most likely get it. Though if it's Takara's, or one of this years Botcon exclusives (less likely, but it's possible), I'll pass.

    It being a custom did come to mind, but honestly, it looks too clean to be one. Even the best made customs have something about them that gives them away.

    I had a hunch that it was just a custom, too. Thanks for confirming it.

    I guess I'll get this if it's available. I have all the BB repaints.
