    Hi everyone!

    The first Botcon Exclusive has been revealed! It's Pryo, here, called Spark, from Classics Inferno! :D 

    This year's theme will be Generation 2! :D 

    The 2010 Botcon boxset will consist of 5 figures. (Perhaps we'll get another large scale figure like Landshark, from last year?)

    Here is what Botcon states:

    Eh... very G2. Which means, very unlikely I'll ever want it.

    If I remember correctly, Pyro was actually released around the same time that Generation 2 was in stores, however, he did not use the Generation 2 sub-title. I suppose that he can be classified as either, though, I tend to classify him as G1.5. :lol

    Seems like we are going to get some wacky colour schemes from classic molds.

    WOW, that looks... absolutely atrocious. This was seriously the best anyone could think of? Really? I mean I knew G2 was going to be an iffy concept, especially after the gaudy colors and obscure characters killed last year's exclusives, but why on Earth would you start with something THAT horrible looking? It looks like a test shot, not an actual exclusive figure.

    By all means you did. G2 was like a paint store that vomited after an earthquake and you guys certainly did it justice if you were going for that aesthetic. :thumb

    Um wow this is going to be a very interesting set (at this point I haven't seen enough to say good or bad). It'll be interested to see what the rest of the set looks like.

    :lolol

    I thought they were zebra stripes too, but after looking at the G2 (ish) toy, it's more like hazard stripes. I'd probably like it a lot more if the color scheme was mostly red/yellow/black, without all the pink and blue. But again, it's gloriously G2 (ish).
