    Not a Botbot if you mean the one in front, looks like something based on Hearts of Iron Bumblebee IIRC. (HoI was IIRC TF in the Old West, Bumblebee disguising himself as a typical American 4-4-0 Eight-Wheeler.)

    Couldn't tell you. You're gonna need to get ahold of some security footage to find that out. :p 

    I live in the south hills so we're still basically in two different cities.

    Aw well. At least I know I’m not the only person in Pennsylvania interested in these little suckers.

    @CrabGrass If you don't have your tickets already, you're not getting 'em--SDCC is sold out.

    Most Transformers-related SDCC ‘exclusives’ have been easily available elsewhere, after the event.

    I have a shiny metallic CW Devastator, a grey set of Bayverse Dinobots, a sword-wielding Fort Max and the Revolution box set (the one with Jetfire and the Visionaries Leoric figure in it) to prove it - and I’ve never even been to San Diego before.

    Don’t worry - SDCC stuff can usually be found at your retailer of choice once the con is over.

    There is still a way to get the SDCC tickets, if you have the budget. They are hosting charity auctions for the returned and cancelled tickets on their eBay to fund the new SDCC museum. It’s a tad bit pricy, but it’s a pair of 2 tickets when it is said and done. That’s how I got my tickets. The eBay is sdcomic-con.

    As for getting the Hasbro stuff, you can get it post con in some cases for a small price hike. But at the con itself, it’s limited to 1 a person so far as I’ve been told. You can kind of cheat I’ve heard with other items and go back each day? But I know for hasbro you need a ticket just to get in line (no guarantee to buy).

    Has there ever been a Transformers figure which was an SDCC exclusive that wasn’t available to buy, post-con? I’m struggling to think of even a single example.

    Relax, these will be relatively easy to pick up.

    It was mostly a joke but I'm worried about another Kreo class of 1984 deal.

    Finally found the Series 2 blindpacks and got the two I wanted—and I've paired a bad ham with a bad ham!

    Well that accounts for the hot chips, coffee cup, yellow backpack, highlighter and the fish taco we saw in the toyfair display.

    Kind of want some of them but not sure if it's enough really to bother tracking them after the con.
