    Much as I have wracked my brain (and THATS saying something!) I can only come up with a few bots and cons that I would hazard a safe-ish guess at who will be getting done botcon style, and most are propably pipe dreams:
    Skids
    Blitzwing
    Sixshot
    Dai Atlas
    Overlord
    Broadside
    Sandstorm

    I could be, and probably am, wrong and feel free to say if you think I am, but lil help people, speculation needed off of my fellow transfans! :)

    Well they said that the figures will be someone that has never had a revamped figure, so Sixshot is out due to his Energon reincarnate, sandstorm has been redone through various lines. Blitzwing had Animated but I'm not sure if that counts in TFCC's eyes.

    I don't think Skids, Sixshot, or Blitzwing are likely as they seem like Hasbro candidates to me (or something no current mold would fit).

    I'm kinda hoping that Scrounge will be made from a Legends Cosmos, but that's probably just wishful thinking.

    Sixshot and Sandstorm are name re-uses, not updates of the character.

    Blitzwing was more appropriately re-used, but it's still not an update of the original character, rather a complete re-invention.

    I could see Tailgate from RTS Windcharger.

    Personality wise it was a re-invention, but everything else was Blitzwing. There is no doubt who that character is. Where as take Animated Prowl isn't really based on G1 Prowl in any way.

    i have a weird feeling that they may make blitzwing finally or or fortress maximus, or omega supreme, or six shot that would be cool as i see it

    I wonder if they might pick up the Reflector redeco of Perceptor? The "Three characters seeing their first update(s)" bit could refer to him, and they have done "troop builder" sets in the past.

    I don't think Hasbro will let Botcon do anything that they could hit on in Generations-type lines. They learned their lesson with the Seekers.

    Don't they have to use existing molds? What mold would they use for Blitzwing?
