    With Botcon now making a comeback next year I'm thinking it'd be a good time to think up what sets and themes we'd love to see in the coming years and what molds they can use.

    While we don't know how they're going to do exclusives this time that is if they're going to them at all, I'd figure we can use the old way they do exclusives which is a box set, three sets and a custom figure class.

    To start it off here's mine.

    Theme: Diaclone

    Summery: Situated in a newly settled Autobot base called Diaclonia,Delta Magnus and his crew the Lightning Strike Coalition Force uncovered rare stashes of Energon that could potentially help kickstaart a machine to bring Cybertron back to life. Sadly for them,The Decepticons found this out too which they send out their most dangerous general Stormbringer and his own team to bring it to the Decepticon Empire. Now being trapped between a rock and a hard place, Delta Magnus's troops hold out a line of defense against the invaders.

    Box Set: The Lightning Strike Coalition Force

    Delta Magnus from Siege Ultra Magnus
    Deep Cover from Siege Sideswipe
    Cordon from Rumored Earthrise Sunstreaker
    Ironcoat (homage of Black Diaclone Ironhide from Siege Ironhide)
    Dino from Siege Mirage (Homage to Red Diaclone Mirage)

    Set 1: Stormbringer from TR Sky Shadow (Homage to the Dreamwave Decepticon that homages DIA Battles.

    Set 2: Multiforce from CW Cyclonus with retooled heads for both robot and core combined mode.(Homages the Multiforce combiner from Diaclone as well as the villain from the Italian Diaclone comics.) with Loud Pedal from RTS Tracks

    Set 3: Overcharge from TR Blitzwing and Gravedigger from T30 Scoop

    Custom class: Yellow Trailbreaker from rumored Earthrise Trailbreaker

    I'd honestly prefer no box sets or anything reminiscent of the FunPub era.

    A few themed exclusive figures in the vein of 3H I could get behind.

    Theme: Euro G1
    Figures:
    - Hyperdrive from TR PM Optimus
    - Stalker from TR Hardhead
    - Archforce from Siege Megatron
    - Flash from PotP Jazz

    The only thing that would make give me any interest in a box set is if they did new ideas or brand new characters with great decos. Otherwise, Selects is now a thing and makes the exclusives moot.

    Dawn of the Parking Garage: All the Modulators plus a bunch of ramp masters in different decos that all match (so we can mix and match base parts). That's all

    I figure that if they would go with a Beast Machines theme then that would have to occur.

    Just recently. It didn't show up on the front page at TFW, but recently the BotCon official social media pages have been re-activated, and Karl Hartman himself (one of the original BotCon founders) announced on Facebook that BotCon will be returning in summer of 2021.

    It's Official - BOTCON IS BACK!

    They also have a new official website up.

    There’s no mention of it being official and they conveniently waited long enough for an unregistered trademark to lapse.

    Didnt Botcon run a year or 2 unendorsed by Hasbro after they switched to OTFCC/Funpub. Which was no figures. What's to say this isnt the case again?

    1. OTFCC, Official Transformers Collectors Convention, was not FunPub. TFCC, Transformers Collectors Club, was FunPub

    No, BotCon/OTFCC has always had exclusive toys. Even before Hasbro's full endorsement.

    I love all of those box set ideas. That said, I want them Generations Selects not Botcon so they're not super exclusive

    Diaclone, Generation 2, and Shattered Glass, mostly. Depends on what gets released in Selects this year.
