If you're finding yourself attracted to robot females capable of transforming in a comic, you need more cold showers. :lol:


Yeah, I think there's something wrong with me.

To be fair, the Windblade artist makes Windblade look VERY armored human.

Finding Windblade cute because her face is drawn so amazingly is my not so secret shame.

Flamewar really looks sweet for a repaint; Primal looks cool but hasn't sold me completely, will wait until better flicks surface to reserve judgement.

Same.

Can someone let us know the prices at the booth? I'd heard ~$140 for the 3-pack and $50 for the Kreo pack, but not sure on the others.

Edit: Found it:

Knight 3-Pack $139
Clones $95
Pirate 2-pack $82
Kre-O 6-pack $50

Botcon toys are starting to show up on ebay, and some of them have pictures...

And I'm only mentioning this because the guy that people seem to think is based on Energon Six Shot looks to me like he's actually a homage to Cybertron Brimstone.

Actually, it looks like one jet and one car.

It also looks like they have arms microns, and the car has the version of the gun from the RiD Vehicon release in addition to his arms micron.

Yea - you're right, one Jet one car. I guess Pounce and Wingspan wouldn't make sense if both had wings... :P

If that doesn't work out for you, Depth Charge and Transmutate are available at the club's online store, so you could probably get someone to order them from there for you if you asked around.

Re: BotCon 2014 (Pasadena, CA) Discussion: Toys and Events

Postby xyl360 » Thu Jun 19, 2014 10:47 pm

Well, I caved. I totally bought a bunch of Botcon exclusives off of ebay just now. Oddly enough, the ones I wanted/purchased were all the figures not included in the boxed set. I didn't go for Scorponok, Ginrai or any of the others. I snagged Flamewar, the three 'Knights', the two 'Pirates' and the two Clones. I'm also gonna snag a Primal Prime once one comes up that's already been painted (and painted well at that). If a few days or so go by without any painted/customized Primal Primes showing up, then I'll just snag one of the unpainted ones and attempt it myself. I just wish it included the paints so I wouldn't have to worry about color matching.

It's funny that this year, just as with last year's set (the Rainmakers (Welcoming Committee), the show-exclusives were the only ones to interest me and the ones in the boxed set were a flop or at least not worth paying the prices. I mean I get that Scorponok and Devcon in particular have been requested like crazy and were definitely excellent choices for exclusives, especially with the custom Headmaster head for Scorponok and all, but I just wasn't convinced that I needed to have them in my collection. That said, all these 3H Beast Wars characters were absolute must haves for me. I've got all of their original versions already, but most of these are really awesome, and in the case of Alpha Trion it's the closest I'll ever come (short of a custom) to the 3H Botcon repaint that could've been but never was save for a single sample:
Image

edit: I just realized that even Devcon was planned that final year before 3H went under:
Image

So given that, plus Apelinq, Primal Prime and Shokoract (and any others who might have appeared in/been featured in the 3H Wreckers/Botcon fiction) it seems that in addition to being the 30th anniversary celebration for Transformers, it's also sort of a homage to the 3H days sort of giving them their dues for being the previous guys running Botcon I guess.

For the curious, there's a whole article about these never released 3H exclusives with pictures and info here on TFormers. They also have pics of the display cases from this year's Botcon showing off all of this year's exclusives, including the show-exclusives but I won't post those since I expect Seibertron has their own that they intend to post for the news feed.

Actually it wasn't too bad. The price I got for getting all of them together was considerably lower than trying to buy each set individually so I don't figure the prices will drop by that much, particularly for some of these that you know people are gonna be snatching up like crazy (such as the Clones).
