    For those of you who might recognize the figure, but are unsure as to where the may have seen it before... The figure is famous (well, as much as it can be), as it's been shown in both Toyfare Magazine (issue 27) and Lee's AFN (issue 83):

    This is the 10th anniversary of the original Toiletbot's origin, and he is what ultimately became the inspiration for Dairycon & it's exclusives, what better way to honor that than 'reissue' the original?

    I'd rather have a worn-paint job on a Shortround. At least then it'd be fully transformable, without it being simply a toilet with limbs. This is my answer to the OP's question. A Classics "modern update" toiletbot.

    Wisconsin, but that's close enough isn't it? But that's what's so fun about Dairycon, they don't take themselves that seriously, which is how we get exclusives like Toiletbot & Ass-09. :D 


    From what I've read, this was a custom that originally appeared at Botcon '99. it was created from some spare Jumpstarter pieces and a plastic toilet... Where he found a little toilet to base the figure off, the world may never know...

    An image of Toiletbot in his, well... toilet mode...
    [​IMG]

    This probably won't win any awards for beauty or intricacies of its transformation, but I don't think that's what his creator had in mind... It's a nice tribute to the original custom figure from a decade ago... a "reissue" if you will!

    I'm not 100% sure, but I have a VERY good feeling I know where the toilet came from to make this figure.

    My sister used to buy all kinds of WWF/WWE wrestling figures in the 1990's and some of them came with accessories and weapons for "Hardcore" matches. Of those weapons, I distinctly remember a toilet that came with one of the wrestlers.

    I've tried Google to find a pic of it, and I've pretty much struck out.

    The best image of it that I could find is on an Ebay auction listed here.

    So someone could by that auction, grab a junker jumpstarter and make their own Toiletbot...:D
