    -Because it's assinine that we're still doing this. Because it's assinine that we're still collecting tfs after 25 years. Because it's assinine that it's coming out of a small Transformers convention in the middle of Wisconsin called "DAIRYCON"!?
    -It's Assinine! Get it? Did we hammer it home?

    It appears that Dairycon’s “Donkey of the Apocalypse” is about to see his final variation! It’s been revealed that the fabled Limited Edition “Maniacal Maroon” ASS-09 figure will be available EXCLUSIVELY through our friends at TFSource.com! Word on the street is that the figure will retail for $49.99, a fraction of the price that some of the previous versions have seen on the likes of Ebay! The figure will only be available in *very* limted numbers, and it’s my understanding that once he’s gone, HE’S GONE! Keep an eye out for more news regarding this figure from TFSource!

    Previously only hinted at when the other Multi-Convedntion exclusives were announced (in ASS-09’s Bio Page), there are 5 confirmed variants to the ASS-09 figure. Of each of these, all were only available through various TF Conventions (one for each Con: Dairycon, CybCon, Autocon, Gamer’s Reunion, DutchBotcon), with the 6th figure left mysteriously absent, with all but a hint of its existence from a photograph on the page…

    ("Maniacal Maroon" ASS-09 can be seen in the upper-right corner)

    The following is an excerpt featuring the "Thousand Asses of the Apocalypse" from the latest Dairycon fanfic "The Return of Convoy":

    Did you miss out on attending one of the conventions last year? Can’t live without your very own “Donkey of the Apocalypse”? -Want to add to your collection of the "Thousand Asses of the Apocalypse"? Need to add another figure to flesh out your “Cult of Unicron”? Think the phrase “Maniacal Maroon” is fun to say? Then keep an eye out for the upcoming announcement from our friends at TFSource!

    Of course, more information about ASS-09 and other characters from the Dairycon Universe can be found here:

    More information is yet to come for this year's Dairycon, so stay tuned?!

    I think that's the Beast Machines Battle Unicorn mold, which is a very good mold.

    I read that wrong and though people were saying this was Beast Machines Unicron instead of Unicorn. Not being a Beast ____ fan I was thinking Unicron was a horse? Are you kidding me? Upon closer inspection I've discovered the truth. Interesting info on the TFWiki for this figure with how BBTS got involved in selling the original.

    I believe that the figure is molded in the new colors, with a modified 'stun whip' (the mane is removed from the weapon), the new mane added to the horse's head, and the removal of the unicorn's horn.
