    Pretty interesting choice, I wonder if DJW will do any accompanying art for it later?

    It looks really nice, I have to say.

    It's something that I can pass on, but really nice nonetheless. Not to mention it's something that wouldn't be hard for someone to make a fascimile of if they so chose.

    After the debacle with them picking the one character everyone first thought of when they did a G2 theme last year (G2 Sideswipe) for the custom class, this seems like it straddles the line well between desirable and essential.

    I tried to get into the class but wasn't successful. Oh well, I think I have better luck painting one myself.

    oh thank the heavens it was not a CON! I couldnt get into a class and would have been so disappointed if it was a CON.

    I can rest easy now.

    Yeah, that was part of the April Fool's gag they ran about the time of Joecon.

    I didn't notice it until they pointed it out on Twitter, but Minerva has custom ears, too. Apparently the classgoers can choose from either TFA or G1 style ears.

    .... and naturally, this will shoot the prices up even further. Still, it looks like a solid figure.

    Now? You don't. The customizing class usually sells out within minutes of Botcon registration going live.
