    If G2 Sideswipe or Ramjet are included in this year's batch of toys in any way, I'm sold.

    Quick digibash.
    Mostly I subdued those garish pink windows and made the gun more accurate to the original toy.

    Am I wrong in thinking that would look better?

    G2 died for a reason. I'll happily not spend a dime on any of this set, yay!

    DINGDINGDING. That's EXACTLY it, but then you go and miss the point. Something with this gaudy of a color scheme will never make it on the main market-- and I'm sure a mass-release remold like Grapple would make a lot more sense for this toy in that aspect.
    But Botcon is the PERFECT place for this kinda stuff-- toys that have a dedicated relatively niche audience, but not something that would make sense to sell at mass-retail.
    Quite honestly, I'm surprised it's taken so long to get a G2-themed set.

    AWESOME, I love the bravery there. This pleases very niche folks which is good, because its so sad when they make awesome stuff that I can't afford.

    Just because Botcon is a niche market does not mean that the exclusives must be shit. Look at 2006 and 2008, not exactly mass market worthy stuff but GREAT exclusives. 2009 and 2010.......not so great (unless some truly notable stuff is revealed, it is a bit early to pass final judgement).

    Again, look at the homage comparison pic. They did a great job. And honestly, the reaction to this set, at least so far, seems to me a lot more positive than either '08 or '09's exclusives.

    '08 has won over a lot of people due to the great fiction that has been written to go with it. I will admit, the idea of a G2 set is much more appealing than the '09 set. The '09 set truly was a turd...it still barely sells for what it cost at the convention (and often goes for less).
