    Happy St. Patricks day to you too. Wakeing up tomorrow is gonna be a bitch. I forgot about the Botcon set mostly because I have no interest in it this year. I don't doubt we will see something new this week just not sure if it will be today.

    yeah, i was bummed there's no new toy to look at...maybe today? maybe its flak, and he's all green and his motto is something about drinking too much energon? which would be really funny since landshark said flak stole his motto, and landshark is a type of beer too...

    They probably figured that since we've seen the leaked pictures of the Skyquake and Leozack(and they even have a Skyquake on sale on E-bay already!!) then why bother?

    The reason why nothing new today?

    Because everything they've released is blue and not green, which would be more fitting for today.

    its rough, i kinda want to hope for good pieces but i think this set is having a hard time floatings so far. the landshark move was a poor choice...and doesnt mattel own the rights to the name landshark??? skeletors shark tank. what mold they use for thunderclash will make or break this for me.

    Yeah, so far none of them interest me.... Thunderclash is the only one I'm interested in, so hopefully he doesn't disappoint. (oh, and I want Leozak and Skyquake too)

    ^ taken from a different thread, but i'm seeing what he means. I sure hope that's not the reason, but it makes sense.

    how fast did 08 sell out, and how long has the 09 set been up?

    I'm waiting to see how Thunderclash turns out as well. I hope they use the Wing Saber mold. The toys this year are lame, so far, but I think Scourge is decent.
