Bob Skir had this helpful thing to say about the Botcon 2011 set: "All will be revealed."
and Derick J Wyatt did say 'Botcon!' in one of his tweets.
That logo is absolutely hopless as a means of hinting, unless it's to be the Unicron trilogy (at least if it is the toys will be easy to get )
There's no mold of that. It's just a prototype. Same for Hot Shot. Anything that had a mold made was produced (in either japan or the US) to recoup the costs.
Animated is popular among some fans, but nothing beats G1 Classics styled figures with the fans. Remember that.
It won't have the longevity and popularity of some other series as it's a style that will now and forever be dead (due to moving away from Cartoon Network and creating the Hub). So no new figures in that style (after possibly BotCon) will eventually lead to disinterest in fans and collectors alike.
I do like Animated personally, though I thought the show was a lot better than the figures are.
Yeah that was only ever a prototype, so it's never coming out ever. Just like Beast Wars Neo Unicron.
Sounds like this will be a mix-match set with characters from the Unicron Trilogy, Animated, BW and G1.
Personally I don't see what would be so hot about a bunch of Animated repaints.
Then again, no set of botcon toys has ever really impressed me aside from the classic seekers that one year, but we ended up getting those at retail anyway.
If animated, it would be my first Botcon set ever. If not, I'll still totally dig it, but I think timing wise, animated makes the most sense
From Botcon at Twitter.
G1? AEC? Animated? BW? What could it be? All of this contemplating may make you feel like you got hit by a Delirious Fire Attack!
I just got this tweet, "BotCon: G1? AEC? Animated? BW? What could it be? All of this contemplating may make you feel like you got hit by a Delirious Fire Attack!"
What could it mean, who said it?
That DOTMTOYS guy did say that the Botcon figures had Cybertron, Animated, and BW molds....
latest twitter posts suggest a transformers 3-d theme?

Lord Imperious Delirious?
Did the BotCon Twitter seriously just reference Lord Imperious Delirious?
EDIT: Apparently so.
i think it did, and i had no idea he existed 5 minutes ago... i'm intrigued though
Maybe it is G1: Lord Imperious Delirious - Transformers Wiki
Hrmmm. GeneralTekno might be on to something on Twitter. Imperious Delirious was an alien invader of sorts. And the Invasion has apparently been coming since last BotCon.
So much for my Vok/BW15th theory.
I think it is a mixture of molds.
Imperious Delirious is techno-organic. I'm sure they could use an Animated mold for that.
And the teaser said, "The Invasion has begun."
It's going to be the most evil thing Botcon can do. release all the BW characters in Animated style.
I really hope its not a fully Animated Set...I think it would be cool if it was a "different dimension team-up" have characters from different era's and storylines in one set
