    My dad says he saw someone buy something in a large black rectangular box at Botcon. It was completely solid black except for a gold seal on the front. He says the dealer mentioned Optimus Prime and a Matrix inside. Someone bought it for $40 before he could look at it.

    I've racked my brain over what it could be to the point where I don't think he knows what he's talking about, but I'd like some input on what it could've been anyway.

    This is the closest I can come up with. Maybe from a distance the outer box looked black? I dunno...

    This thread would've been a lot funnier, had it been about a 3rd party toy sold in a brown paper bag.

    He says it's around the size of a Botcon set, but maybe not the same proportions.

    I already showed him the Matrix-packaging DVD set and he said that wasn't it.

    Not a "Sons of Cybertron" set? I saw a few of those around, but the embossed faces on the black case are in silver, I believe.
