    What was the difference between the Botcon ones and the normal line Arcee?

    No, Elita One has the same ol' Arcee head that we've seen before. Go to http://www.bwtf.com/timelines/descent/chromia/ and click on the last link, it'll show you a picture of a bunch of regular Arcee repaints with the BotCon exclusives.

    The differences are pretty subtle, so that if you didn't see the two side-by-side, it's pretty easy to think that one is the other. But the people in charge of BotCon are very particular about their figures remaining "exclusive", and it wouldn't surprise me if those head molds were destroyed after all of the exclusives were produced that year.

    I've been waiting for an Armorhide repaint...love that mold. I'll probably bite, despite passing on the rest of the Target exclusives.

    I did'nt think I needed a second armorhide but i like these sector 7 guys.
    I guess a 3rd skyblast version won't kill me. Dig that jungle camo as aerialbot airraid no less.

    armorhide has the caution tape on his legs target hardtop has, Looking closer at airaid it might not be jungle camo the body and especially the legs have these black yellow digi pattern things like some kind of virtual cyberdive air raid or something.

    my wallets not done with movie toys then, not by a long shot.

    Armohide looks better with the black, but the others I don`t know about. I guess I`m getting tired of the same ones always getting redone.
