    So what are we going to see in exclusives and new releases at Botcon?

    I'm hoping of Generations Dirge and Thundercracker!!!

    Dirge is a possibility due to the fact that Takara gave him his own wings, thus he wouldn't be the Botcon mold (which is the loophole they found for Thrust). But Thundercracker is still just Starscream, Hasbro can't release him without infringing on FunPub's contract unless they significantly alter his color scheme.


    Which is why I still want Hasbro to make AM Thundercracker at retail.

    I'm hoping to see release dates for the leftover Animated molds.

    I'm just hoping for more Generations news and possibly a little bit of news on Henkei! picking back up.

    I'm sure Hasbro stated at Toyfair that other seekers could follow if Thrust does well. From that, Dirge is a given, however if they go on to do Thundercracker, I think the only way they could get away with it would be to stylise his deco like they did with Skywarp.

    More HFD, PCC, and Generations toys are inevitable. As for anything specific, I wouldn't at all be surprised if they revealed a Generations Dirge figure, and maybe even a Thundercracker. They did mention that they had more Seekers in the works. Other than that it's up in the air as to what they'll surprise us with next. Hopefully some sort of information about the remaining Animated figures. Also, I wouldn't be too surprised if a Wheeljack figure of some kind is revealed, since they've given a couple of hints that they're developing one (personally I'm hoping it's for Generations, but it could easily be HFD or PCC).

    I think we'll see the majority of the Hunt For Decepticons line in the display cases, including guys like Hailstorm, Battle Blade Bee, or Elita-1, who were pictures-only at ToyFair. I doubt there will be anything new there toy-wise for the PCC line or the Generations line. Maybe some of the WFC figures, like Megatron or Soundwave.

    I suspect we'll see a bunch of new Generations figures, but they will be pictures-only for now. We'll get pics of new PCC stuff too. I don't think there are any surprises left for the HFD line.

    Honestly all I really care to get news about is Generations stuff.

    I'm sure all they have to do with Thundercracker is change the shade of blue and give it updated wing details.

    I have the 07 Botcon set but I still wouldn't mind them releasing Dirge and Thundercracker. I'd get 'em for sure.

    AI want news about Animated Rodimus and company. I still want more seekers too. Sunstorm and the other rainmaker. I know that would give us a lot of Decepticon planes, but I love them so very much.

    Generations: Dirge, Thundercracker, maybe a Sunstorm figure too. As well as maybe a few more molds, maybe a Red Alert in the vein of Henkei

    TF2010: I expect we'll see a few production samples of what was on the slides at Toyfair. Hopefully they reveal a few more Constructicons and HAs.

    Power Core Combiners: I imagine we'll Mudslinger and Double Clutch.

    I'd expect info, possibly display samples from the first 3-4 waves of HFTD, PCC, and Generations, and maybe a couple short glimpses/previews for the next "big thing", which is "TF: Prime" at this point.

    - based on almost every other past Botcon.

    I'd expect Dirge based on the Henkei/Gentei remold is almost a given. I wouldn't bet either way on Thundercracker. I just keep waiting not-so-patiently for a good Classiverserations Jazz toy.

    Hoping on some more Generations news. Hopefully they show off some Beast Wars character updates? Also, any news about TF: Prime would be great, seeing as all we have is a little picture of a movie-esque Bumblebee.

    No idea what they will show. My hopes and dreams - new generations for wheeljack, tracks, grapple, rhinox, and blacharacnia. A GOOD Blitzwing would be welcome too. I wouldn't say no to more dinobots probably.

    I'm hoping for Thundercracker,Terrorsaur, Sunstorm, Dirge and the generic purple Seeker/s for the cons. And for the bots: Jazz, Wheeljack, Rhinox and Grapple.
