    Bwa? Never would have expected that - not that someone at the factory couldn't just throw any toy into one of the Botcon bags, but still.

    Veddy interesting.

    lol....I just saw this. That would be uber-random. Its definitely in a Botcon bag, though, but I find it hard to believe that they'd use a ROTF mold in a set full of Universe 2.0 molds. Who knows with all the Crazy stuff coming out of China these days.

    The Banzaitron was seen in Walmart computers, and we got Banzaitron at Botcon last year. I don't understand why this would be an exclusive.

    Someone most likely just got a stolen chinese one and threw it in a bag for a cheap buck. Besides, it's been listed in Wal-Mart comps (like Gog said) and by BBTS as well. It's a normal retail toy. :|

    Besides, all Botcon Bagged toys are packaged in vehicle mode and with a partner toy attached.

    I doubt it's a con exclusive seeing as it showed up in Walmart's listings. Plus we got official pics from Walmart. The ebay listing is likely incorrect.

    It's a fake, I'm fairly sure. No tray to hold the cumbersome robot mode, it should be in tank mode if it were for Botcon and we know it's solicited as a retail toy.

    Don't they know the big money is in falsely claiming it's a Lucky Draw?

    This is fake, not only for the reasons listed previously about Wal-Mart & official pics, but Botcon can't use any movie toys dues to Dreamworks and/or GM having partial ownership, as well as FunPub unable to use molds that are still on the shelf.
