    I'm currious what people's number one Transformer they're looking for at botcon.

    Mine is MOC Pretender Bumblebee, which seems strange however it's the only Bumblebee figure MOC I'm missing. What are yours?

    Hello All!
    Seems that the last few years, I have been getting some of my dream figures. MISB AM Op Prime was one of them. Got him last year.

    This year, I think that I may have a line on G2 Breakdown, Nightracer, and Fractyl and Packrat 2 pack. Finishing out the BotCon exclusives has always been a quest for me, so I may have a good chance of doing that.

    At the Con itself, a MISB Black Zarak would be nice. Or, Masterforce MISB Metalhawk, as I am currently watching the Masterforce eps. Die cast construction- it's a lost art...

    Galvatro, looking forward to seeing everyone at the Con.

    Galaxy Shuttle, Leozak, hard to find Micromaster Stuff, and Pretender Starscream.

    My Alts and Armada are complete, I want to complete my micromasters next.

    Other than that, Ratbat, Rumble, Frenzy, and a Blue BT Prowl, but those ones are far easier to come accross, or so I would imagine.

    My dream for the last few years is to be in a position where I can purchase an attendee package. Both finances and scheduling conflicts have prevented me from going. :(  Aside from that, I'd honestly love to be able to go through some good junk bins again. Aside from that, I'd like to look for some bargains and such. If I were still into G1 hardcore, I'd have a nice little list. If I were there, I think I'd be trying to find a good deal on a MP-3 though.

    I really hope all of you guys have a great time and that you're able to find what you're looking for! :thumb  :)

    Everyone wants to find G1 working Shockwave's these days. Thos suckers are hard to find for a decent price.

    I'll be trying to find Battle Gaia, MISB Blitzwing, MISB Ultra Magnus, MP-04 if the price is right and some cassette tapes for Soundwave.

    I’ll settle for a non-working if it’s in good shape otherwise.

    Everybody wants Shockwave but I don't think he's too hard to get for a decent price. I was able to pick a working one up for $80 6 months ago.

    I only have 3 Japanese G1 left to complete my collection and if I see them, I'll pick them up. But it looks as if I'll have to fight for Shuffler and Trizer. Doubleclouder is my third.
