    Since we are approaching Botcon I was wondering what is your favourite individual Botcon exclusive toy you own?

    I've never gone to a Botcon and only own the '08 sets Grimlock, so I'm gonna have to say that's my favourite :eek:

    I really love both my BotCon 07 Springer and Huffer.

    They're also the only BotCon toys I own.

    I only have Botcon whatever (09?) Banzaitron, who is pretty darn cool.

    My favourite(s) would have to be Shattered Glass Prime (WANT!!!!) and whatever that Weirdwolf repaint was from (ALSO WANT!!!).

    I can't pick one... I love Deathsauras, Dreadwind, Shattered Megatron, Banzai-tron... I wish I could afford 06 Megatron & Waspinator...

    Beast Wars Megatron. The fact that is worth like 10 times what I paid for it doesnt even factor in, I will never sell it.

    Bugbite, Banzai-tron, and Clench are all nearly tied to me.

    yeah, I was gonna say alpha trion and weirdwolf. as much attention as the 07 boxed set gets for the seekers, the other figures from that year were the real standouts.

    Of the 30 of so Botcon guys I have managed to collect, I think my favorites have to be SG Prime, '07 Huffer and SG Megatron.....probably in that order.

    Games Of Deception Seekers, but if I owned the Huffer that would be my favorite.

    Thanx

    Something pre-2005. As nice a job as Fun Pub has done with the exclusive sets, there was something a bit more unique about having 1-2 very special items per year rather than a dozen "ok" ones.

    I guess I'd have to go with G2 Breakdown... getting a G1-mold toy for a con exclusive whose retail release was cancelled is a pretty unique set of circumstances. Props to Tigatron and Sentinel Maximus, too.

    Although I don't have any BotCon toys, I would love to have Beast Wars Megatron.

    For me, even though I'm not the biggest fan of BW toys I have to go with ANTAGONY with G2 Breakdown a CLOSE second.

    The one I'd love to own most is SG Rodimus, but I like this year's Spark a lot, too.
    ...Only Botcon toy I own is Legends Ramjet :lol

    I think Sandstorm, Apelinq, Shokaract, and TM Tigatron are all quite nice figures.
