    That's all they do, WST Dinobots, so for sure it was going to be a repaint.

    Yeah, surprise surprise. Now I just want JustItToys to get back to making new molds of the WST Dinobots. Two more to go and no pre-orders or release date announced yet.

    I don't think so, I don't feel like spending $500 just to have the chance of maybe finding a $300 figure (Overlord, for example)...

    Bro, are you talking about: $500 including the cost of travelling from Montreal to Toronto?

    Also, I've got an overlord figure for sale, (I'm in Toronto). PM me with your e-mail if you want pics.

    Because the cost of admission to Transformerscon is only like $20 bucks. It's sooooo worth it. I've been going since the convention started, and each year gets better and better for me... got some sweet alex milne sketches as well. But if you wanna get sketches, my advice is hit him up early man, tons of people want sketches.

    Try posting in the cybertron.ca forums to see if you can hitch a ride from other guys that are coming from Montreal... just spoke to somebody who's coming from Winnipeg.

    It's exactly what I expected.

    I missed the xmas grimlock though so I'm not that concerned about getting this. Wouldn't mind, but whatever.

    Bingo! I was actually expecting something more along the lines of a Canadian Slag, but I'm guessing the popularity of Santa Commander showed G2 repaints to be a far more popular idea.

    Santa Commander needs company, so I hope I can pick one up. TFSource did sell the Prototype Snarl themselves, so perhaps they will do the same in this case as well.

    Oh, and we still get to speculate on the colors! I'm thinking it'll be green, to distance itself from the Snarl and add more color variety.

    Yeah, gas, hotel, food for 2 (wife would come with me), plus the toys... I don't mind the drive, I drove across Canada several times, but I'd rather save that money and buy SOC Gunbuster and SOC Ideon instead. :)

    Oh, it could have been, I didn't pay enough attention to notice.:redface2:  I also don't have it anymore to check myself.

    Either way, I definitely prefer any G2 repaint to such a minor repaint.
