    The Chosen Prime has the following on their FB page:

    Come Join us at TFCon 2016 in Rosemont, Illinois October 21-23. We will be featuring all of the latest releases from Official and 3rd Party along with some of the latest Prototypes of upcoming releases.

    We will also be offering a vast product lineup from MakeToys including some special and hard to come by offerings!

    Darn, I wonder if the Nemesis version of Striker Manus will be an exclusive.

    Edit, other things I can think of:
    Shattered Glass Ripper
    Pandinus (Black Zarak version)

    I have been or will be in Chicago two of the last four weeks. Sure wish I had realized this was coming up. I would have delayed one of my trips!

    Special and hard to buy doesn't necessarily mean excluve

    Though if they did offer something . . .

    The HOPE would be Nemesis or Magnus colors Striker Manus

    maybe another repaint limb for shattered glass computron

    more realistic:
    early release of Black Zarak or Rioter Despotron


    Next year:
    Artfire using their Inferno mold + the targetmaster from Crosshairs

    I'm hoping MakeToys does an Optimanus to stand opposite Despotron. It won't be a TFCon reveal but it would be great if they did it one day.

    Won't it be that repaint of the Defensor limb that we have already seen? That's where bet would be.

    Me too. #DukePlease

    I thought repaints never were "canon" with any 3rd party lines and were treated like one-shot comics?

    Right now we have the potential for a nemesis or duke colored manus, the blot colored celeritas, and a very unlikely black Zarak ... The hard to find items are more than likely old items like the mobines which were super rare for a while and maybe some nemesis tankers

    Was he from Defensor? I thought he was just another Computron limb and they were doing a long, slow, exclusive release of this set.
    Who was it again? I gotta look him up. Can these two combiners swap limbs?

    Oh wait maybe it was Computron. Either way that guy. The blot coloured repainted limb.

    I hope if it's a Nemesis or Shattered Glass Striker it will be available on their website.
