    I think the seller tagged the word "Botcon" just to up the selling price....

    There were only 2 versions made: Regular & Snowman. :) 

    Seller probably input "Botcon" into the auction's header so as to help widen the area of influence in order to reach out to a bigger audience. (You've to know that "Botcon" is a much sought after word on eBay's search engine)

    You boys are reading too much into this.

    Don't take this the wrong way...but have you tried Googling/researching some of the things you ask about at times first before posting? I don't mean to sound curt, but with some questions you ask, a simple search would've have answered your question. This very site now has a Resources section that includes the third party products. That, along with Google (or TFWiki, when it comes to official Hasbro/Takara releases), may have helped you realize there is no Botcon release of the Superion upgrade set. You post here for a little bit, and you learn quickly the resources that are available to you.

    $500? Hell no. Especially since they just did another run of this. There's a thread here about Robot Kingdom having it, bbts had a pre-order up as well. Also, maybe you could go for slightly shorter thread titles? It feels like an add with every possible key word crammed into it.

    Kit $60, Universe Superion $40+shipping. So about $120 or a little more depending on where you live is what you have to pay for this.
    The seller is marked in my book as a liar and a fool as this is neither a botcon edition, nor worth their ludicrous price.

    I guess this is his justification for such an overinflated price! I paid $50 for the snowman kit, although I love it and it makes Superion Awesome, I was alittle disappointed when I opened the box.

    I'll mark him down as a samaritan for now since he's giving away more than 1/3 of the proceeds. That's like USD $200!

    For that reason, I hope his auction sells...

    I understand for charity, but maybe he needs a richer audience cause I sure as hell dont have 300 to throw towards charity(I'm saying I'd only pay tops 200 for this-if I really needed one and there was only one on ebay-so thats where the 300 comes in).
