Cybertron Metroplex with a new head would make a very good Fortress Maximus.
Action master scorponok colours
Interesting, but Ill most likely pass as I already have the Superlink version.
I think know what it is!
I think we will all find out in 18 days... 8)

Wow and Devorjak ust gave me a G1 Skorpy with headmaster. Now he'll have a buddy.
1,000 pieces eh? That just screams Botcon exclusive to me! SWEET!!!
I kind of bowed out of Transformers during Energon was into Gundams then, this guy is nice if you like Scorpions, but I am not feeling this mold at all.
G1 colors would be neat though.
I don't think it is a Botcon toy, but a recolor into Double Punch would fit right in with the other exclusives. I'd buy it that's for sure.
1000 pieces eh? Well so much for that.
BTW....haven't all the Botcon toys been announced already? Why are some thinking that this will be one of them? Do they normally have expensive surprise figures like this?
I ask because I don't know.
No, they haven't all been announced. The typical setup for Botcon exclusives is
Last year, there was an additional 2-pack and one of the 2-packs was a 3-pack. Some people think they'll repeat that scenarion this year, but I'm not really expecting it (I'm also not counting 08's Mini-cons as actual figure slots, more like bonuses). Still, with that format, we have....
Free figure - ?
2-pack - Rapido and Slicer ?
2-pack - Gnaw and troop-builder? or Gnaw and mystery-figure?
Either way, there's at least 1 figure we haven't seen, and there may be as many as 3 we haven't seen.
And as for whether or not there's usually expensive surprises, the answer is yes. Darksyde Megatron in 06, Alpha Trion in 07, SG Megatron in 08, and Banzai-tron last year. So, a Double Punch would fit right in this year.
Just hope they fix the shoulder problem that all of mine have suffered.
Ahh...thanks for clearing that up. I never been to Botcon, so I didn't know how that went.
Usually there's a two pack with one large figure and a smaller figure. In 2006 it was Megatron and Waspinator, 2007 had Alpha Trion and Weirdwolf, 2008 had Megatron and Rodimus, and 2009 had Razorclaw and Elita One AND Banzai-Tron and Skyquake. This year, we "know" about Rapido, Sharkticon, and Slicer. Traditionally, there's a freebie and two 2-packs. That leaves at least two figures we have no clue about. If that IS Slicer and nor SG Wheeljack, then Doublepunch out of Scorponok is entirely in the realm of possibility... and we STILL don't know the final one...
Beat to the punch! Typing on the iPhone takes a while!
It could be...
Freebie - Rapido
2/3-pack - Gnaw + Troopbuilders
2-pack - Slicer + Double Punch (Euro AM pack)
or it could be
Freebie - Gnaw
2-pack - Rapido + ?
2-pack - Slicer + Double Punch
or... Scorponok could be completely unrelated!
Double Punch is a good guess.......but what about Scorpulator?
Dont have the mold yet either so I'll definately pick this dude up.
Could this be a possible:
From S250, probably not.
