    I can totally see that. Fits with what we have heard thus far. A third add-on set would be the only way to get both Elita One and the Sweeps plus everything else we have been shown.

    Yeah I know thats one of the current theories. I was one of the first people to suggest a third set, but so far theres no proof that that is going to be the case. I'm still not convinced that they will be able to make enough Scourge heads if they're using the usual casts, 4000+ seems more than has been suggested being possible.

    If it does prove to be true that there is at least $320 of toys. Considering we get a boxset with the same number and sized Transformers (if you include the attendee with the boxset and not the loose) and access to a three day convention for $20 less than that price, it's pretty damn expensive.

    Almost right. There will be 3 Sweeps in the 3rd set not 2. Everything else is pretty much spot on.

    If those lists are true, sounds great! I'm really excited for this entire set. Anyone looking to buy a right arm?

    OK, if that's Banzai-Tron then I have to have it. I wonder if he has a new head.

    If that's Banzai-Tron, then it will be the one Botcon figure I put all my resources towards getting. I don't own any other versions of this mold, but have wanted to. The colors are pretty cool and Banzai-Tron is a neat character.
    They sure are hitting some home runs with the attendee exclusives this year, if not the box set...

    High Five! :D 

    I would think this would be better in the box set, but I guess with the release of Cyclonus, Scourge is a better idea.

    I was told 3 sweeps in the third set. I was unsure if my information was true until I saw Banzai Tron this morning. Woohoo!

    As per my sources, his information is pretty accurate with what I've heard as well. Just had to stay silent for awhile. I think that's list is what's gonna be used as the add-on for BC 09. I like. Still nothing is official, but all info has been accurate...

    I'm not fond of the vehicle mode colour scheme, as it just looks dull with the muted purple and medium grey; some more green and orange detailing would have been nice. However, I'm guessing that it's designed more to look accurate in robot mode, and this is one of the best molds in the Energon line, so I'm expecting the robot form to look very good. Too bad all of the best toys for this BotCon set seem to be the souvenir and "non-set" figures.

    What's with the disproportionate suck-to-awesome ratio between the box set and the attendee figs? :lol 

    One of my favorite molds, so an easy pickup for me.

    Wouldn't have called Banzai-tron. Three Sweeps seem a little much, and Elita-One? Bleh. I guess it was inevitable eventually though.

    Ah yes, Banzai-tron... buy for me. Have to get him on the aftermarket though...

    Is it just me or... are the show souvenirs better then the boxset this year? Very sad... at least something good came from it.

    It is not just you. The add-ons should have been the box set.

    If they had this mold, why the heck didnt they make this one Scourge instead of sideways for gods sake.
