    It's one thing if it's not Animated, but if it's based on some obscure comic that I have no knowledge of or connection with... well, I wasn't going to be able to afford going this year anyway, so like many others have said, it's probably better if I don't feel that I need to spend the money.

    I'd totally buy a Pinkie Pie Blurr, though. Just saying.

    OOOOKAY! I just got Issue #37 today. They go right out and TELL YOU which series the Botcon theme is. They will start previewing toys in February. Should I spill it?

    No other big reveals in the issue, but the comic does have several fembots in it. Heh.

    EDIT: Just one curious thing, Bill Rawley says there were THREE headsculpts made for the RTS Wreck-Gar mold, but there are "currently no plans" to get all three of them out to market.

    Yes, you should. If nothing else, could you PM me and tell me so I can spill it over on 4chan?

    If you're worried, put spoiler tags on it.

    You poor fools.......... we all know this year is Kissplay's time to shine.

    They hinted the #3 for a reason.

    3 Kissplay manga tokubans, 3 major Kissplay toy releases, 3 Kissplay Cassette bots, 3 Kissplay Sparkbots. It's all there!

    Okay, while I won't sit here and complain about LITERALLY THE GREATEST BOTCON SET I'VE HEARD ABOUT, NO I AM NOT EXAGGERATING, it is a little weird that all those Botcon Tweets were leading us in such strange directions.

    I'd ask for proof/scans of the magazine, but we all know what happens to those. On this website, anyway.

    Is that the theme or is that the line the molds are from? Or both?

    I don't need a Fatimus Prime repaint into Bulkhead, for example.

    Oh yeah, I missed this the first time through: Preorders for Transtech Cheetor and G2 Ramjet are expected to start in April to ship for summer.

    Dunno 'bout that, it doesn't go into any more detail. But previews start "first week of February" so it's not that long to wait.

    I've got a weakness for Animated Decepticons. That said I don't really need another of the Starscream mold.

    Let me speak for all those that don't like Animated: Ick!

    I might change my tune if they use GOOD molds for this Animated theme.
