    Since this year's exclusive set was a bunch of repainted and altered Transformers Classics, what will happen next year?

    I believe that we will be seeing some tricked out Transformers Movie toys. Maybe a TF Movie Wreckers line-up with Prime as Ultra Magnus or Ironhide as Roadbuster or even Blackout as Springer. It will probably be accompanied by a cool post-film TF Movie storyline.

    Also, where will BOTCON '08 be located?

    Even if they decide to do a "post-film" Movie universe storyline (which is by no means a given), there are issues with using most of the Movie-based molds. Anything that has a GM logo on the package, for example, is likely a no-go. This has been an issue making club/convention Alternators prohibitive, as well.

    Yeah, not only would FP have to pay Hasbro to use the molds and Takara to produce whatever they were thinking of... they'd have to pay the car company royalties to use the car. Very cost prohibitive indeed.

    They're probably more likely to do more Classics based stuff or to do something in the Universe of the movie, but not use any of the movie molds... though they wouldn't fit very well with the movie asthetics.

    There is a chance they could use any of the video game and the Real Gears next year. If I recall, none of them have a GM trademark.

    However, I don't care what they use or do far as Exclusives go. All I know is by God...I'm going to make it to BotCon 08!! Come hell, high water, or the end of the world!! Two years of missing BotCon is two years too long.
