    My good friend Deejay from the iaconhub picked me up a set of the BC figures. Today the mailman handed me a very large box:

    Everything still in the package, he also included the excellent golden discset as a surprise gift!

    The sheer size of the box caught me off guard. I had imagined it a bit smaller!

    Maximize! Terrorize!

    I'm still in doubt if I'm gonna have the two birds be Laserbeak and Buzzsaw or Terrorsaur and Air Razor.

    I really love this set and it's a nice addition to my BeastWars collection.

    thanks again Deej!

    Yup, Botcon 06's exclusives are indeed a thing of beauty and no mistake; I picked them all up except the Divebombs (which I got for Twin Twist). Congrats on picking them up d00d!

    What I loved about that set is that most of the toys were new to me. I'd only owned C. Clocker, E. Divebomb, and A. Hoist in the past, so the other 5 were completely new to me. So I didn't feel as ripped as someone that would've had a full set of repaints.

    I hear that. I had Cyb Def Red Alert, Hoist & Ransack, so I was very pleased to end up with so many new moulds.

    Congrats. This boxset is the BEST yet. Honestly I can't wait to get Airrazor to complete my set.

    I want one of those sets so bad..I loved the Cybertron/Galaxy Force molds...making them into the Beast Wars characters makes them twice as good.

    No, Primal, Rhinox, Dinobot, Ratrap and Cheetor come in the box. The others were only available at the convention.

    w00t. Glad they arrived unharmed. It's amazing they sat around HERE so long without damage >.< 1-year-olds with a healthy supply of go-go-go juice can be soooo destructive.

    Go teh intarwebs. I had seen the botcon site pics, and hockeygamer's opened Crumplezone; so when they made me open the box and verify the contents, I debated long and hard about sending Primal with the rest... :ev: 

    I wasn't impressed with hoist, landmine, or ransack, but I had gotten CD Red Alert just before the convention because of the Megatron pics. I opened Red in our motel room, and he actually rode home in the box beside Megs :D 

    Also, iDD didn't mention how hard I begged to keep at least Laserbeak, if not both birds. Thanks ;)

    Nice haul, definitely one of the best Botcon exclusives sets done as far as I'm concerned, although this year might take back that title lol

    Also is that a Z-Gok in your fish tank? :lol

    I'm like, outrageously jealous of your Botcon Megatron. Great haul!

    Those are some really great toys. I couldn't justify it to pay that much for those toys, otherwise I'd have jumped on them too.

    It's certainly a nice set. I am not a big Beast Wars fan by any means, but this set was well-done and I like each figure except Primal and Rattrap. I don't like the Primal character or the Crumplezone mold, and I felt that Brakedown should have been used for Rattrap. I would pick up Cheetor & Rhinox but neither is a high priority for me.

    wow, I've never seen all of them together. that's an amazing set! I didn't even know about the birds. dare I ask how much you paid for them, or actually, what the cost would've been at the convention?
