    Let's wait for ToyFair to come and go before we worry about BotCon, shall we?

    If you mean actual Botcon figures then the rumoured but not yet confirmed Junkion Insecticons.

    All over this set, might slightly mod mine to make them a bit white trash "The Hills have Eyes"-esque, and call them the Incesticons.

    A few interest me:

    SG Junkions (Rumoured Wreck-Gar Insecticon-inspired Redeco)
    Kick-Off (Rumoured RTS Jazz Redeco)
    Metalhawk (Generations Thunderwing Redeco, New Head)
    Octopunch (HFD Sea Spray Redeco, New Head)
    Overlord (ROTF Bludgeon Redeco, New Head)
    Spinister (Rumoured HFD Tomahawk Redeco)
    SG Tracks (RTS Road Rage-inspired Redeco)

    A few don't:

    SG Soundwave (Universe Ratchet Redeco, New Head)
    SG Swindle (Rumoured Universe Hound Redeco)
    Armdada Treadshot (RTS Jazz Redeco)
    SG Ultra Magnus (RTS G2 Optimus Prime Diaclone-inspired Redeco)

    Unfortunately, three of five from the main set don't really interest me much.

    Could you please stop re-registering under new accounts with the number 32 in their name and constantly posting inane topics? It's getting aggravating.

    I'm not going, but if I was to buy some of the toys later on I'd like Octopunch, Metalhawk, and maybe SG Soundwave.

    As far as Con-exclusive toys, I am looking forward to the whole set. I can't get enough of the classics molds. Even in the retail releases, there are hits and misses.

    As far as announcements I am hopeful for:
    Movie:
    -Onreleased/unannounced on-screen characters (have wishful hopes for some getting upgraded to the next class size, but am fine if they arn't)
    -Wingy-dingy Optimus Prime US release
    -Update on Target Deluxe Leadfoot

    Generations:
    -Images/displays of more repaints/remolds from the previous run
    -A continuation with new molds, bigger class molds

    Prime:
    -A whole bunch of reveals, though I am not interested, I hope everyone who is is a kid in a candystore with the amount of reveals.

    Exclusive:
    MP-10 US edition announcement.

    I'll probably track down a Treadshot, and maybe an Ultra Magnus. I'll have to see the SG Junkions, too, because that sounds pretty sweet.

    Spinister, Octopunch, Treadshot and Metalhawk (if I like Octo and Hawks head when we get good pictures).

    So far I'll probably eBay Tracks, Metalhawk, Octopunch, Spinister and Kickoff (since it seems that list is turning out to be true). Maybe Ultra Magnus, but at this point I really don't care about it. If the Junkions weren't SG I'd be all over them. Personally, I really hope SG is phased out after this year.

    As far as new toys being shown at the panels, the main thing I care about is more Classics. And of course it would be nice to get confirmation whether or not DoTM Dino/Mirage is even in the works.

    Right now Spinister is the only must-get for me. I like the Octopunch colors but I hate the SG symbol right there on the chest.

    *maybe* Overlord, want to see Spinister, and I think that's it for exclusives.

    Any classics or MP news will be warmly met by me
