That being the case, I'm actually glad that they couldn't get the mold in another color. That means that the rest of us have the option of making our own... we just need to buy multiple Nightbeats!
great...now i've gotta buy this years botcon set, then get two nightbeats...crazy crazy crazyness....

I was at the customizing class today. It was pretty sweet. Shawn and his crew did a wonderful job. I had a great time.

I could be wrong, but I believe Sean also said if he could have gotten the mold in different colors, he would have made a Minerva figure. He had a mock up of that as well.

I'll get my camera and take some pics of my figure.

Please keep in mind:

1. I suck at taking pictures.
2. I suck at customizing & painting toys.
3. I deviated a little bit (paint-wise) from Shawn's model.

Here are his bio & tech specs:

Autobot
Nightbeat

Function: Secret Police
"Lies and screams are music to my ears."

Bio: Nightbeat serves the Autobot forces as the head of the Secret Police, enforcing the decrees of Optimus Prime and rooting out potential Decepticon sympathizers from the ranks of the Autobot army. Highly suspicious of any soldier who shows even a hint of dissension, Nightbeat will use any means necessary to get the information he wants, including torture and dismemberment. An extreme paranoid, he often sees enemies where there are none. While highly feared by most other Autobots, he mistakes this for their respect. To him, fear and respect are the same thing.

Abilities: While his logic center isn't quite as sophisticated as some Autobots', Nightbeat is more than capable of leaping beyond logic to find the "truth" than some, making him the most effective interrogator in the Autobot ranks. Carries a stun gun that can physically incapacitate his victims, but leave their higher cognitive functions operational.

Weaknesses: Nightbeat suffers from a chronic case of Cosmic Rust, the result of a failed assassination attempt. While treatment has reduced it to a minor irritation, failureto continually monitor the condition can cause it to flare up and render him both highly contagious and unable to funtion.

Strength: 5
Intelligence: 8
Speed: 7
Enurance: 6
Rank: 7
Courage: 9
Fireblast: 7
Skill:9

Other tidbits:

We painted the headlights with "glow in the dark" paint.

The stripes on the door were actually stickers (one for each black line).

We painted cosmic rust on the figure near the tires - it is hard to see in my pic.

There is a gun & missle (not shown in pic).

I believe (and I could be wrong on this - I thought I heard him say this) Shawn said that as far as the mold choices go, he could have picked any of this year's exclusives molds as the mold for the customizing class. I liked what he picked - I'm happy how it turned out.

Does anyone have or know where I can get a list of all the figures used and made in past BotCon customizing class?
