Know what? No pun intended, I'm tickled pink. I have wanted this figure since I read the comic. Screw fan service, this is flat out ME service! Nice little mash up of figures we've got this year, eh fellas?

This fig fits in with older Botcon sets? I don't know anything about this version of this character =|

Yeah, Elita-1 had a brief roll in the Botcon 07 comic. She infiltrated the Decepticon base and actually had it out with Ravage. She won of course. But this figure is based off of that character in the Games of Deceptions comic.

I like the Thunderblast mold but missed it in the original release.

I wish it would get a general repaint in Universe or even RotF.

I was at BotCon 07 and I WANTED this figure to be part of the set and have wanted it SINCE THEN to be a club figure...

How the fuck am I supposed to get this now?

E-bay, and lots & lots of money, sadly... or find an attendee who's willing to part with theirs.

How much would you be willing to spend? I bet you could find someone here who's going who can try and find someone there for you who would part with one for $xxx

The problem, of course, is that the Attendee Fre Figures (if that IS what this will be) are generall the most expensive on the aftermarket, as I understand it...and there comes a pricepoint I just don't quite feel like passing on a deluxe sized toy...

Plus, at the moment, I am fairly broke (which, admittedly, happens to everyone from time to time) and BotCon is coming on fast.

Brief...completely unnecessary...I suppose it depends on how you look at it.

Editorial perspective only, her 2-4 pages (whatever it was) did not advance the story at all.

(I still want the figure mind you, but those were wasted pages in the comic...)

Bloody..

Too much pink. And I thought Botcon Kup had too much of one colour.

Yeah, I think this is kind of a waste. If this keeps up and we do start getting all these exclusives for figures that barely figure into an over all story, maybe we will get a Headmaster Sunstreaker from the "-tion" comics. I know HM SS was a large part of the story (or most of it...) but talk about an unnecessary figure.....
