    If Botcon was given one more year under Fun Pub and you were given creative control over the Con, what would you theme it and what exclusive figures would be available?

    Theme: Transformers: Armada 15th Anniversary
    Uses Generations, Combiner Wars, and Titans Returns figures. The Titan Masters would act as Mini-Cons for the individual figures and are capable of being swapped out like the original Mini-Cons.

    Boxset:
    - Optimus Prime W/ Sparkplug (Repaint of the TR Optimus Prime).
    - Hot Shot W/ Jolt and JaAm accessory piece (Repaint of the TR Chromedome W/ a new head).
    - Red Alert W/ Longarm (Repaint of the CW First Aid W/ a new head).
    - Scavenger W/ Rollbar (Repaint of the CW Scrapper W/ a new head).
    - Smokescreen W/ Liftor (Repaint of the Generations Deluxe Class Hoist W/ a new head).
    Freebie Figure:
    - Blurr W/ Incinerator (Repaint of the TR Blurr W/ a new head).

    At Show Souvenir Packages
    Armada Decepticon Two-Pack:
    - Decepticon Cyclonus W/ Crumplezone (Repaint of the TR Deluxe Class Highbrow W/ a new head).
    - Decepticon Demolisher (Repaint of the TR Deluxe Class Hardhead W/ a new head).
    Minions of Unicron Two-Pack:
    - Sideways (Repaint of the CW Deluxe Class Autobot Groove W/ a new head).
    - Nemesis Prime
    Con Exclusive Figure:
    - Overload (repaint of CW Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Prime W/ a new head).

    Customization Class:
    - Decepticon Wheeljack (Combiner Wars Deluxe Class Sunstreaker with a new head).

    Golden Ticket Exclusive Figure:
    - High Wire (Repaint of the CW legends class Groove W/ a new head).

    Thoughts?

    @OP - probably too many heads

    For me, I'd finish up the Mayhem vs Wreckers storyline with something like this:

    Main set:
    CW Mirage -> Leadfoot (new head?)
    CW Hot Spot -> Pyro/Spark (new head and Combiner head)
    UW Nosecone -> Xaaron (new head)
    CW Streetwise -> Stakeout
    CW Rook -> Stockade

    Freebie
    TR Bumblebee -> Tap-out

    Souvenir Set #1
    TR Weirdwolf -> Carnivac
    T30 Rhinox -> Stranglehold (new head)

    Souvenir Set #2
    TR Megatron/Blitzwing -> Flywheels (Skytread head)
    CW First Aid -> Crankcase

    Souvenir Set #3
    UW Starscream -> Redwing
    UW Thrust -> Dirge (Armada Thrust Powerlinx Blue)
    UW Thrust -> Thrust (Armada Thrust Powerlinx Red)

    second idea for a set: The Soul of Braves
    the story: due to quantum instabilities in the multiversal fabric the Souls of Brave Warriors are able to pass between worlds. these Brave Souls find a long forgotten Cybertronian Battleground, littered with the dead. they possess and reformat these bodies into proper Fighting machines. properly armed, they seek the source of the Multi-dimensional disturbance, that they may end it's threat to their world.

    Boxset:
    GaoGaiGar (made from 2 cw nosecones, 2 uw Blastoffs and cw Sky Lynx)

    souvenir set 1:
    Zazorigun (energon scorponok with BC 2015 headmaster retool)

    souvenir set 2
    Thunder Dagwon (TR Sentinel Prime)
    Captain Shark (energon Sharkticon)

    souvenir set 3
    King Exkaiser (CW Ultra Magnus)

    attendee figure:
    Goldymarg with Goldion Hammer (cw Rook, Platinum edition Ultra Magnus hammer

    custom class figure:
    Granbird (classics Astrotrain)

    im probably cheating a bit by using leader class molds. but i budgeted them out by reducing the number of overall figures in the set.
