    That would be nice too. That Classics blue Bumblebee thing never came to fruition. I'm down for Classics Glyph and Tap-Out and a Rook from Windcharger.

    you'd think that the freebie would be a knight/autobot/maximal, so in stead of shockaract it could be ape-linq and shockaract could go with A3

    My full apology's, good sir. No offense was meant or intended by what I wrote. I indeed was unaware of your current involvement with Botcon events, a fact that was just made clear to me by that of Sol Fury.

    The post has been deleted and respectfully withdrawn.

    Thank you for all your past and current contributions to the show and I look forward to all your future involvement. I also hope that some of these rumors about these show exclusives are true. :thumb

    As always all the Alpha Trions BOTCON exclusives... when will HASBRO learn to make it before BOTCON does it...some of us can't pay the money they ask in BOTCON...but no we are forgotten once again.

    Awesome, all shoehorned to hell and none of it appeals to me. No urge to give any money to the disrespectful Club (and Hasbro via the Club).

    What MP mold...you don't mean Sideswipe, do you!

    That wouldn't work anyways. G2 Breakdown from Prime Breakdown though? I could dig that.

    Wow, really hoping this is correct! Although why in heavens name is it the WRONG set of clones? Pounce/wingspan makes no sense with those molds, where-as the bot clones would be perfect. If they're bot clones I'll nab 'em though^^
    Other than that
    FLAMEWAR! Flare-up! Shockrat! Apeling! ^^

    Out of curiosity, Mr Hartman sir, who owns the rights to 3H created characters like Apelinq, Packrat, Roulette, and Shockaract?

    Everyone seems to have forgotten that we have one more mold left. We still don't know what the custom class figure is.

    The best guess I can come up with is Red Alert or Crankcase out of Cannonball.

    Hasbro owns them by default.

    That's what I thought too at first... then I thought, what about Flare-Up from BH Arcee?

    Speculation and logic says it's gonna be Cybertron Red Alert from Cannonball.

    So it'll probably be Armada Swindle from Classics Mirage or something..

    I still don't understand the fascination with wanting Cybertron Red Alert. The most majority of fans hold AEC fiction in very low regard. Also, didn't Pete flat out say that Red Alert wasn't here this year?

    I've just always liked Red Alert, that's all.
    And, no, I was not aware of the possibility of his potential existence being flat out refuted.

    Heh. Probably...

    First, I'm Karl. :)  No need for formality. I'm just a fan. Like you guys. Mr. Hartman would be my dad, one of the first two staff members at the first BotCon.

    All of the old 3H stuff is Hasbro's IP now.

    Last year I doubted the predictions for botcon figs and they all ended up being right.
    I'll start by saying this: I honestly don't quite like the idea of this Alpha Trion. I know they're going for an homage to the unreleased Snarl redeco and the head would really match, but I just find it really out of place to have a lion Alpha Trion (I suppose it's nice to have a version of the character though). I personally liked the Cybertron/10th Anniv Primal, and it's definately the best choice for Apelinq thanks to the surf board. I quite like the head on Rampage (but it SUCKS in alt mode) so Shockaract will be welcomed. Definately looking forward to Flamewar (wish the original wasn't prohibitively expensive and impossible to find). I do want some version of the the Jet Vehicon; I'm hoping that's not the threepack though.
    I kinda wanted some sort of Armada homage (namely Demolisher out of Straxus) but oh well. I guess this is an interesting lineup.
    Also gotta ask, was there a statement that the Bots and Cons would have even numbers? Normally it's not really a given especially since one or more club figures also complements the set (like how Dion went with Wings of Honor)
