    Meh. I think I would have been more interested in this set about a year ago, when I was really into Animated. But my enthusiasm for the line has dropped off significantly in the interim and I can't see dropping ~$300 on a set of Animated toys right now.

    ^ That would be nice! Starting to wonder if they're ever gonna release season 3 though.

    This makes me both happy and sad at the same time.... excited to see some new Animated stuff, sad that it's gonna be expensive. But if it looks good enough, I'm probably gonna bite.

    Hmmm... A Botcon Box Set has 5 figures... Animated was a homage to G1... A typical G1 gestalt, except for Devastator, has 5 robots... My money is on a G1 / Animated themed gestalt.

    As for the Attendee Botcon Exclusives... It would definitely be awesome if we can finally get an Animated Thundercracker.

    Botcon is gonna be good times, so have your wallets prepared!

    I wonder what the toys will be. I can't see them including any of the stuff released in japan even though it would be different without the metallic paint. Off the top of my head I can see them doing Wasp with a new head, and an add on troop builder set of autoloopers with a new head. Other than the Starscream clones I con't think of any straight repaints we didn't already get. It doesn't make sense that they are working with Derrik Wyatt if we're getting designs out of the allspark almanac though. My first instinct is I want to get a non attending set since theres no way I can make it to the convention but I probably won't make up my mind until I have a better idea of what we're getting.

    Woohoo! I called this on a WTF@TFW thread when TFA Cheetor was announced but I was talked down from the TFA wishing tree.

    This is so going to be my first and possibly last Botcon Set that I purchase! In person because I live in SoCal

    Can't wait to see the designs! Hope they include a white Autotrooper!

    :D

    I think that you have the right idea about what we could expect for this boxset, but I think a better choice could be made for a team that would be more likely than the Protectobots.

    Thank you! Can't wait to see what the set is! Animated brought me back into the TF fold, after more than 2 decades! When I was a kid. :lol

    Ever since Pete confirmed Animated molds were back on the table a few days ago I couldn't stop smiling. Now that the 2011 set actually contains Animated, I have one thing to say:

    AUTOTROOPERS, PLEASE! :)

    Yeah I'm in the same place really. My Animated collection is greatly reduced and I've crawled back to Classics begging for forgiveness.
