Yeah, I definitely don't regret my purchases. These are definitely the figures to have. That seems to be a recurring theme for the past couple years or so. The attendee-only figures beat out the boxed set figures. Those Vehicons in particular look amazing as the Decepticon Clones. That choice was a stroke of genius on the Club's part and it allowed them to finally give us the Jet Vehicon mold. Very cool.

With the demand for G1 figures to be re-introduced into the CHUG lines, I really hope these "pirated" (see what I did there?) Clones are released to the general public as Decepticon Clones Wingspan and Pounce, even if they're not beasts. All the botcon figures are pretty sweet, but those "Clones" would be the only two "must haves" I would want of this Botcon collection.

While I'm going to be using the clones as Pounce and Wingspan on my shelves, I really do like that they`re mass produced clone clones.

As someone who army built the hell out of the various Vehicon releases, I may get two more sets down the road.

I like this set better than the "main" set! Pounce and Wingspan, in particular, look beautiful and NEED to be in my collection.

While I get the thinking behind those molds for Pounce and Wingspan, I can't help but think they would've made more sense for Fastlane and Cloudraker.

Of course, they could've really blown minds by using the molds for both sets of Autobot and Decepticon clones, suggesting they're all clones of the same robot. :D

Ive never really gotten into BotCon (or any convention really) how do attendee figures work?

With all the sheer awesome that is the secondary exclusives, the polybagged sets, I kinda wish Funpub decided to forgo the box set based on the 30th anniversary of transformers, and make it a set dedicated to botcons 20th. They still could've included devcon and scorponok, plus they probably would've been able to pull of more kickass figures based on previous exclusives, or Unreleased ones.

Also on a side note, is odd that the Kreons this year are figures unrelated to the boxset? Last years machine wars termination kreons were parallel to the figures from the box set, this year they're all previous exclusives, which makes me think a botcon 20th set would've been better than the transformers 30th.

That's the truth! I couldn't care less about most of the set figures, Scorponok excluded. But even Scorpy is skipable because the energon version is good enough for me.

The Clones, and the bikes are the "must buys" for me.

Shockoract, Alpha Triser and Brimstone are all pretty nice too.
Not must haves, but all quite nice.

I could see myself going for all the attendee figures except Apelinq. These guys seem to be fairly popular, but I'll wait for all the hubbub to die down and see if they go on sale at the major retailers and the Club Store.

Something tells me they're not gonna have many(or any) left to sell on the club store.

Did I call the use of FoC Air Raid or what? :DANCE: Better yet, he's homaging Cybertron Brimstone, that's the kind of surprise I dig.

And the Clones I could easily see being originally produced by Wings Jhiaxus, maybe commissioned by Cannonball. Igu being included is icing on the cake.

Alpha Trizer, Apelinq and Hunter are all must-haves... *sob*

Im shocked by the love these crappy character choices are getting. I only bought the non attendee box set and grabbed Flamewar on ebay. I also had took a gamble on the class figure before knowing what it was in my preorder, but kind of like it for the clear red plastic. He will be my rabid hate plauge ape. 75 bucks on that was a fair deal.

But those clones...ugh. How could funpub not give them proper heads instead of vehicons ? Im pretty sure a 3rd party will make proper heads. The yellow shockwave repaint just sucks because the mold sucks to begin with. Alpha Lion (or whatever his name is) is a joke. I know theres a still a heavy demand for the 2007 botcon alpha trion, but cmon thats thing dont cut it as a place holder. Flareup looks good, but its basically an orange arcee. Maybe if they had done a fembots 3 pack it would have been worth picking up. But im happy with the 2005 versions. I actually like the black crab, but I 60 dollar like him, not 125 dollar like him. Apelinq...I dont really care about. I want to keep my beast wars collection simple. I dont regret my decison of skipping botcon this year. I did Pasadena in 2011 so its not like I missed any adventuring out thrre. Alot of money saved on hotel, airfare, and high priced California food.

Site sponsor Robotkingdom managed to snap a few early images of Hasbro's display cases at BotCon! The displays haven't been fully set up, but we get some pretty interesting images of several upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction box set, plus some previously announced figures like Generations Leader Class Jetfire and the Hasbro Toys"R"Us Exclusive Masterpieces Sunstorm and Prowl. Expect much better images and info later on this weekend, for now check out the sneak peak below:

I kind of agree with you, but just not with so much of a vitriol I think. I think a lot of the choices, mold and character wise, are just dull. Yes, I see what they did, and I understand that their referencing 3H/old Fun Pub OC's is one of those things we're expected to be beside ourselves with awe and wonder at, but to me, it just makes a random jumble of a set more random and jumbled.
I think all the toys look very nice, add on wise; the box set is still real weak to me. I think the bikes look great, and I think the Clones look good, but to me they don't work. I think the Vehicon heads actually work into a fiction where the two guys are supposed to be clones, but to me they just look like white Vehicons. That Alpha Trion is just stupid.
I get the idea that this set was a way better sounding idea than it was a practice. It's like Fun Pub's own little Generations line, but for me at least, it just didn't work out.

Rusty Brown Prime! :D

Though, they are all knocked over! :lol:

The Vehicon Clones look awesome. Only thing I really want, though Ape-Linq is tempting, because, Beast Wars.

That last Grimlock is massive. Adult Collector sticker on it too!

Really want to see what else is in store! I love exclusives.

I hear that last night FunPub confirmed that Alpha Trizer is future Cheetor, NOT Alpha Lion.

Whatever that jumbled mess is with the beat up white Prime ... I'm interested.

If I can cancel my preorder for the Takara import, that would be good.
