Well, since you were the driving force for me to have even learned about Dairycon in the first place; it wouldn't be the same without you! -Plus, you & your Seibertron t-shirt featured pretty prominently in our video!
I hope I can make it this year. The problem is I don't know if my team will make the AHL playoffs. If they do, we will either be playing that weekend or trying to recover from the end of the year elimination party (which usually lasts a couple days followed by a couple days hangover). If not, I'm gonna make the effort...
Excelsior Moo-Believers! Methusalen here, with big news from the first exclusive reveal for Dairycon 2012! A first for Dairycon exclusives, Neoknight is the very FIRST human character to receive their exclusive treatment!
The only other custom I've seen of this guy is Zobovor's, made from a J. Jonah Jameson figure, but the pics of it are dead on his site.
Now, while this guy could've used some resculpting to make him look a bit less like a younger Commissioner Gordon, it does seem more appropriate for human TF characters to be in scale with 3.75" Joe and Marvel Legends figures. Has there been one in that scale of Tony Stark in a 3-piece suit instead of armor? That'd actually be more appropriate, since ol' G.B. was basically Tony without the alter-ego or substance abuse. No offense to Bob Budianski, of course; Blackrock is still among the best recurring human characters created for TF fiction. The little touch that makes Leadfoot the greatest entrant in the PCC line IMHO is his being sponsored by Blackrock Oil, so I'd say G.B. getting this sort of appreciation is long overdue, but coincides nicely with IDW reprinting his early appearances over the next year.

I noticed the human figure G.B Blackrock's toy hair is parted to different sides in various pics. one pic show the human toy with hair parted to the right side. the other pic shows the human G.B Blackrock toy hair parted to the left side. I'm gonna guess the dairycon crew members used some photo shop program & flipped/rotated the pics.
Dairycon Staffers today revealed what's in-store for those who PreRegister for the Con:
IN ADDITION to the previously announced Barn, NeoKnight, & Cosmoo (Seen at http://dairylandtransfans.com/2012fig.html ), we have an additional FIVE figures that will be available at this year's Dairycon Convention!
Awesum Possum Rally Rhino Burning Monkey Battle Bat The Cracker
Oh. My. God. *FIVE* Figures?
Dairycon Staffers confirmed that, yes, there will be FIVE figures available to PreRegistrants who sign up for Dairycon.
No further information was given when we asked about how these would come (in a boxset, packaged individually, etc), however, they did say this: "Originally, the 'Battle Bat' figure was given (to another show) as our foreign market exclusive, and was not intended to be available at Dairycon. However, since there is Fan Demand for it, we will do our best to make sure that this figure is also available here as well."
With the previous reveals of Barn, CosMoo, and NeoKnight, seeing FIVE MORE figures at Dairycon is just... it's just....
Motto:"Cry havoc and let slip the Wolves of War, Vae Victus!"

i remember those guys, for happy meal toys they were pretty good. better than the crap thats past off as transformers these days, those actually transformed from a robot to an alt mode not just sit there and do nothing.
