    Forgive me for not being in the know, but didn't Botcon ban selling 3rd party stuff a couple years ago? If they did, I guess they backed off.

    Either way, I'm kind of curious. Does anyone know if the Bluster and Trench pictures are from final production versions or not? (The $5 discount promo code pictured in the gallery makes buying them a bit more tempting too.)

    Guys, let me inform you of a pretty sweet deal here. For only the cost of airfare, hotel, food, and admission you can get access to buying MMC's Shadow Hexatron in person for only an extra $15 above online prices! What a steal!

    Oh hey - looks like we have a TFcon/AutoAssembly exclusive revealed in there.

    Namely, the Mario/Luigi colored Bluster/Trench.

    I imagine these will sell well, like the MechIdeas shared exclusive last year appeared to.

    Hope that isn't the final deco for the (not)-elita-1 making it red steps all over the toes of a Firestar repaint.

    Sludge, yessssss...

    I'm pretty sure that's Hasbro's Grimlock.

    Ok, I went to Botcon last year and saw several 3rd party pieces being sold, but they looked like a reselling of 3rd party products through other vendors. I could be wrong though, I really wasn't paying that close attention. So I'm guessing that's OK just not actually having 3rd party creator/manufacturer groups on premises I'm gathering is taboo?

    I'll admit Elita-1's not bad for a 3rd party figure.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo

    That's not how I was hoping Not-Godbomber would turn out at all... That is crushingly disappointing. :cry 


    That Cy-Kill is pretty dang cool, though.

    Really liking Sludge. But, is it just me or is the head of the bot tucked away in the pooper of that dinosaur? If the bots arms are the hind legs...then...?

    Aside from that, he's got wicked detail. Can't wait to see it in paint!

    Very nice.

    I really respect all the hard work these 3rd party groups put into their figures, they all look great!
