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

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.

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.

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.

so was that one display just not set up or did they fall over? Is it an actual set or just a random display, seems odd that they'd bring back crankcase seeing as how he was killed. Also who is the 3rd one there? I dont recognize the alt mode and the robot mode is to obscured to make enough out.

The 3rd figure is apparently Generation Skids as the AoE Rally car. It's meant to be the scene where the feds pull up(Crankcase) and OP escapes by driving through the barn door.

I am surprisingly excited by this voyager Drift. Those swords look to be made of rigid plastic - not floppy!!! Plus, the remolding (i.e. the shoulders) really helps accentuate the samurai look. This guy will very probably be my next desk-former.

I like most of the attendee stuff, but not enough to go out and buy them for the post-Botcon inflated eBay prices. The only things I think I'm going to try and get right out the gate are Cannonball, Fire Guts Ginrai, and Shockaract.

BTW, since the Club decided to use EVERY PRIME ARCEE MOLD this year, I'm surprised they didn't do something like this for Shokaract:

The Ginrai is nice, but for me it's mainly because the figure is such a good one. The character or deco for Botcon, I'm not that impressed, but the actual pictures of it make it look better than I'd originally thought.
And yeah, personally I think Shockract would be more interesting had he been the Sharkticon Megatron mold. As it stands, he's not interesting at all.

Yeah, and it's probably also a matter of there being a number of large figures this year as well. Thundertron and Skorpanok are pretty big, and 'vehicle' mode on that Megatron is fairly wide. The Voyager Sharkticon Megs would have been a far better choice, but I can see that it probably wasn't the most feasible.
Hell, size was such an issue that they couldn't even make a decent sized head for that Rampage, after all.

You know, I think the ONLY issue I have with the Clones is that a car and a plane would've worked better for Cloudraker and Fastlane. But I want them, and will be watching their prices earnestly.

I want Apelinq too, but I've been usung Universe/Cybertron Primal foir that honor for a while, so no hurry. The rest, all inpressive figuesa, and I can't believe how low some of the boxset figs are going for (30 for Cannonball? Sheesh) were I at a Botcon, I'd be enjoying every one of them.

So, the Sonic RS IS a Transformer. I'm assuming that's Hot Shot? Either way, more new figures is a great thing. Movie accurate deco Grimlock? That'll make people happy, and it seems they even beat Takara at their own game. O_o

Bumblebee looks better with each new picture. I'm impressed.

The name of the "faction" or rather sub-group is "Cybertronian Knights", not to be confused with "Knights of Cybertron" on which the group seems to be based.

Here's something funny: with this Apelinq toy, he now holds the record of most (official) BotCon/OTFCC exclusive toys for a single character at 3:

1) BotCon 2000: redeco of Transmetal Optimus Primal
2) OTFCC 2004: retool of Armada Rollout
3) BotCon 2014: redeco of Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Optimus Primal

If we're counting BotCon 2004, he's tied with Breakdown.

Nothing seemingly new here, though there are some oddities (such as Nightbeat's packaging sporting the Reveal the Shield Jazz mock-up as opposed to using the final product).

Coming up next in the initial BotCon craze are the Hasbro Display galleries of both the Generations portion and the simplified Robots in Disguise portion of Age of Extinction! Per usual, there is nothing actually new, save for our actual first look at the Camaro 2014 upgrade of Bumblebee (our first reported look was of the leaked product images of the Evolutions two-pack which contains this Bumblebee and Generations Legends Bumblebee that comes with a yellow version of Dark of the Moon Jolt's MechTech weapon).

I think they made Bumblebee a shellformer so they could remold it into Stinger by changing the vehicle parts, but not the robot parts so that the robot mode looks the same as Bumblebee's, but not the vehicle since the vehicle parts are a shell rather than being part of the robot mode.

To round off the BotCon current and soon-to-be-released galleries, we have some miscellaneous product to show off: Loyal Subjects, Construct-Bots, Kre-O, and Rescue Bots!

Not much new for Rescue Bots. However, Dinobots Bumblebee, Boulder, Chase, and a smaller version of Optimus Primal were on the scene! View the gallery for the Rescue Bots here!

Next we have some Kre-O! Not much was shown, though we have some nice looks at upcoming Micro-Changers and the Grimlock Unleashed set. The Kre-O gallery can be viewed here!

Finally, we come to the Loyal Subjects, makers of the super adorable Super Deformed Transformers. The Loyal Subjects will be featuring new three-packs available at San Diego Comic Con 2014: Shattered Glass Dinobots, Autobot Cars, and Decepticon Coneheads! The Shattered Glass Dinobots set will include Grimlock, Snarl, and Slag; the Autobot Cars set will feature Generation 2 Sideswipe, Smokescreen, and a translucent Mirage (imitating an invisible effect); and the Decepticon Coneheads will feature translucent versions of, you guessed it, Ramjet, Thrust, and Dirge! Their gallery can be viewed here.
