    It's Megatron in blue.

    No idea where it's from though.

    What... The snark?

    When did we have blue dinosaurs? (I guess aside from G2 Grimlock... Please tell me that's not G2 Grimlock...)

    Not entirely sure who he's supposed to represent, either. If it was supposed to be G2 Grimlock, they'd probably have used the Classics Grimlock mold again.

    Colours look like Cryotek.

    Looks like a universe dinobot repaint to me.

    Not sure who or what it's supposed to be, but the colors do fit with this years theme. Only thing that comes to mind is G2 Grimlock (because of the blue), but the green and purple make me think it's something else.

    No, it's the Cybertron /BW10th Megatron Mold.

    Hummm. I'm thinking this is Krok.

    It's definitely a repaint of BWX/Cybertron Jungle Planet Megatron...

    What character it is.... G2 Grimlock? I was thinking was there a G2 Firecon in those colors, but nope, so ... hmm???



    Good catch... the colors did look familiar, and it fits that. Perhaps it could be a Shattered Glass character for a 2-pack with Wheeljack... they did have that prose story where Wheeljack made a bunch of Dinobots, several brightly colored I think...

    Yea that was what I first thought until I saw the tail. It looks like that twisted tail the universe dinobot has. I don't have the bw10/cybertron beast megatron so I wouldn't know off the bat if it was that mold.

    Would make sense for it to be G2 Grimlock. First thing I thought of when I saw it.

    That is a terrific mold. But is has an obvious Megatron head.

    We have Sky-Byte, maybe this is Slapper? Nah, he was maroon.

    My guess is Cryotek. Late G1/Early G2 was light on beasts.

    Walky on the Allspark pointed out (kinda) that the tail and chest torso area are translucent.

    Thus, pretty much a dead match for Cryotek as I mentioned earlier.

    My only problem with this being Beast-Bot is that BB has absolutely none of the bright green and pink.

    Looks like the dark blue is translucent, so maybe it is "G2 Cindersaur", though G2 Cindersaur never existed before.

    Head remold for G2 Grimlock on a not so obvious grimlock body.

    Because they already did shattered glass grimlock from the classics body.

    Wow this is a lot of botcon figures.

    ---
    Edit: It would be beastbot. Grimlock has no Green. But still nothing confirmed from botcon yet. So it could be anything.

    This fig is bright green and purple. Beast Bot's primary color is blue, with dark green and purple highlights. Only thing that DOESN'T fit is the shade of green... And they could easily have brightened that for fit.

    Edgewise - love the idea re: Wheeljack's dinobots. That would really fit well together!

    I'll go with Krok on this one, too... and this marks the first Botcon toy that does absolutely nothing for me. Where's the larger Souvenir toys already? They've all been deluxes so far and we've only got space enough for one more release, the mystery Shattered Glass partner to Wheeljack.
