    Go check him out.

    I am very pleased to see that he is based on the Landmine mold and I like how they explained why he still has the Autobot symbol.

    Damn, that's nice. A damn nice set so far. Or is that all of them? Either way, kickass.

    Funny how the face looks a bit youthful in that colour scheme....

    Anyway, right mold choice, colours work well as the character, and pretty well as a colour scheme in it's own right.

    Very good. Probably the best exclusive FP have had so far, period.

    Wow that is fantastic. Just fantastic. That gold is a really nice choice as far as picking a color of gold. It's just great.

    Beats Waspinator and claims my favorite spot.

    Exactly what I wanted and was expecting. I mean, c'mon. He's even got the double sawblade Chainguns o' Doom thing going on with his Cyber Key power gimmick. It was meant to be.

    YES! The only mold I could possible have seen for this. *joygasm*

    Well, so far, primal is exactly what I hoped for, Rattrap (at least the unofficial pics) works for me, but unexpected, and Cheetor works nicely, likewise came out of left field though. Rhinox is love, and Dinobot, I would have preferred not to see a fifth copy of this mold, but it does work decently. And then the Waspinator leak. Oh that just works so unexpectedly well.

    I am a happy fanboy.

    WOW.

    That's really nice. After the Cheetor fiasco, i was all set for a letdown here ~ now i've got a dilema. I think 3 are great (Oprimus, Rattrap, Rhinox) one's "meh" (Dinobot) and one's Crap (Cheetor).

    are 3 worth the price of admission for a non-attendee package????

    Look forward to seeing the packaging and seeing them all together.

    Lol @ the work-around for the molded Autobot symbol. :p 


    But that's one sharp looking toy, and a very convincing Rhinox.

    Beautiful. Even if i can't make it to Botcon this year, I'm still planning on ordering this set; it's just too damn nice to miss out on.

    Very nice :thumb  I was afraid that Landmine's headsculpt wouldn't fit Rhinox, but now that I can see it, it works.

    I'm really liking all of the BotCon toys that we've seen so far, except for the two Divebomb repaints (which may not even be for BotCon, who knows?) I just hope I'm lucky enough to find someone who's willing to pick up the attendee figures for me.

    Wow, I can't believe how unbelievably cool and nice that thing looks....
