    Unless they're leaked from Chinese factories we've seen all the exclusives we're going to until the show. They've done a good job recently of not letting toys surface ... although we have an entire list of rumored toys :lol 

    The schedule looks fun enough. It's good to see the return of the mystery science theater type event.

    When is the Prime Panel?

    I expect that'll be when any upcoming autobots are announced.

    Apparently, there isn't one. That and only having one Hasbro panel is a bit odd.

    Ach! Where was this info posted?

    The sole reason I decided to go was to meet Mr Cullen, it would suck if there was a chance this wasn't going to happen. Planned to sit in line all day if I had to.

    Maybe there are no more leaks as they decided to only have Octopunch as a lone exclusive.

    :)  nah not really but thatd be a lil letdown if it ever happened that way with no warning

    Well nuts.

    Still, I hope we get at least three new on-screen autobots revealed.

    But I won't hold my breath.

    Well...we haven't seen any leaks AND they expanded the custom class...maybe they took all those jokes about the custom class being responsible for the exclusives seriously :p 

    "This year the custom class participants will make history by being a part of, and creating a part of Botcon...experience the (rumored) Hasbro sweat shop conditions first hand as angry attendees wait impatiently outside the door for their exclusives. You'll need to crank out several hundred figures before you are allowed to leave. It'll be a challenge, but most of all, have fun!"



    Personally I'd be fine with less show toys, especially if it meant more club toys...

    say what you will about the craziness that has gone down, and i have gotten angry myself, but i have waited 7 years to go to botcon, since I was a kid in middle school, and I am not gonna let anything, not even funpub, stop me from going.

    Ok ,there is a lottery for the Cullen Autographs? I understand the overwhelming he could go through but I hope this is clearly and overly posted all over so people don't feel like they never saw it.

    I guess, I heard about it in this thread earlier on. Not sure if valid but it does make a certain bit of sense. He is the top one at this one(though I wish I had something Primal BW for Chalk to sign) so the sheer amount of people going for him is high.


    My son though, he just wants me to buy him a Bumblebee so he can get the original Bumblebee to sign it lol!

    You would think they would ask hint to sign on Sunday too. The guys that run the Dallas Comic Con should show FunPub how to properly run a con.

    The rumor list from awhile back has a lot of cred behind it since it was right about the rest of the box set reveals and the one attendee figure we have actually seen. Could be some surprises though.

    Looking forward to the exclusives!


    Some interesting stuff here. While I share the anxiety level over the risk of no Cullen autograph, I can understand the need for restrictions.
