    So for the first time Botcon is not to far and I have the weekend off so I figure why not? But what would I buy? I for the most part only collect female transformers. I do love the animated figures just because they are outstanding but will they have the new animated toys there? Or any female exclusives? Or would I be in for a let down?

    A good amount of past Botcon exclusives have been female characters. You could always see if people are selling those, though; they're guaranteed to be hella expensive.

    If all you want are female TFs then you are in for a letdown cuz I don't think there are any female TFs in this years exclusive set and I don't think the remaining animated toys will be at botcon (particular of interest to you would be Arcee I assume). Although, funpub will be selling movie toys at botcon so maybe they will have the movie female bikes.

    I doubt you will be disappointed. I haven't been myself but from what I hear there is just so much to do and so many things to see that you will be very very happy even if you don't buy as single figure while you are there.

    I've been to some Joe Cons and I've got to admit there is just something insanely cool about being there in person when all the new stuff is revealed.

    I do want the strange fem-mermaids. So All the exclusives have been announced? I was hoping for an Elita to be there somewhere.

    All of the exclusives have been seen, and none are female. Sorry.

    When I first started going to Botcons, it was all about "things to buy". Now it's more about "things to see" and/or "things to experience".

    I suspect there will be quite a lot of early-wave ROTF toys there. Harder to say on anything else.

    Well, I've never been to Botcon, but, form what I understand, if you go to Botcon for the toys, you will be disappointed. Not because the toys suck (That is a matter of opinion, and irrelevant to my argument) but because that's not the reason to go to Botcon.

    Botcon is about the people, personalities, and all the crazy goings-on. It's pretty much the biggest Transformer-based shindig in North America.

    So, if you want to enjoy Botcon, immerse yourself in it. If you can, hook up with others from the board who are going, and just surrender to your inner geek. Then, whatever else you get at Botcon will just be a nice bonus.

    if you havn't picked up the older botcon arcee (pink tm2 black arachnia) or antagony (black bw inferno) you have a good chance of finding those at the con,
    also keep in mind alot of dealers will have non transformer stuff too..lots of art and such for sale too, if its not going to break your bank its a pretty fun experience in and out of the dealer room.


    (and if you can't find the arcee I'll be selling one of my extras after the con)

    Last year I picked up the following fembots at botcon:

    Superlink Paragon Medic - $20
    Superlink Ariel - $30
    TFTM Black Arcee - $35
    TFTM Wonderfest G1 Arcee - $80

    There also the crazy rumor that we still might get a repainted thunderclash.

    This is the main reason I am going. That and to find out the fate of Animated Arcee first hand.

    All I've seen are Leozak, Skyquake, Razorclaw and Banzaitron... unless I missed one, that leaves 1 maybe two more.
