    Man, they keep pushing that TFP Prowl design so much. He better show up in the show soon.

    I wonder how hasbro missed all that 3rd party stuff.

    and i think the elite guard prowl on the table was 69.00 and not the pcc limbs.

    So the ban on 3rd party items was lifted or what? Unless they are sketchy dealers trying to sell whatever 3rd party items they can before hasbro catches them. With these images out I am sure that won't be long.

    Pretty sure that $69 is the price tag on that Elite Guard Prowl and the PCC limbs are just there for display.

    They did not put a ban on all things non-Transformers. They put a ban on things that are IP infringing. There are plenty of 3rd party products that don't infringe.

    Having said that, I did feel the urge to be quick about putting the Shadow Bat figure into my backpack when I bought it.

    Shadowbat/Kingbat's sword looks really nice - it's a shame he isn't Ratbat colour though I don't really see the point of making another black one - unless it's just supposed to match Nemesis Prime specifically. They might have been better of just selling the sword.

    I wonder if they are using a stronger material for the shaft now as I often her that it cracks at the joints (mine sure did). It was probably a bad idea to design the shaft the way the did it would have been better off as a single piece probably.

    Huh, thought the ban would apply to both items on sale AND display.

    And jeez, that Bumblebee just looks awful. I hoped that their articulated figures would be better then their godawful Optimus statue, but that was too much to hope for I guess. They really should just convince ThreeA to do high end figures already, they're pretty much the only ones who can do it justice. Especially after seeing their amazing Portal 2 and Real Steel robots.

    I mean, seriously, just look at these, remember that they are fully articulated, and imagine what ThreeA could do with movie Transformers:

    If I'd know Shadowbat was only $35.00 I'd have been begging for people to hook me up with one.

    Shame I'd get murdered on Customs fees if I bought it direct from the the store.

    I think it'd be interesting to see what would happen if Botcon did try to confiscate all that third-party stuff. I imagine it'd be close to a riot.

    It's the dealers own fault. They should have been paying attention and I am sure Hasbro gave them plenty of warnings. I hate the thought of a few good hercs getting destroyed.

    At the same time it's a PR Nightmare for FP and Hasbro if they did do that
