A quick question to some who attend this canada convention.

Does Hasbro/Takara ever show any newer TF toys (test shots/proto types) that they didn't show at botcon's convention in the same year?

I ask because it would be kinda cool/awesome to see never before seen TF toys test )shots/proto types) at both TFCON & SDCC this year.

I remember Hasbro Canada previously showing pictures of store exclusives that had not been shown at Botcon before.

TFcon has announced it's second convention exclusive, Head Robots Toxin, limited to 100 pieces.

The 2nd TFcon 2011 exclusive is Toxin!

When Lord Zarak needed someone to help copy the Headmaster and Transtector technology that Stronghold pioneered, he turned to Toxin. Toxin biggest claim to fame back on Cybertron was the mass cloning process of Reflector which bulked out Megatron‘s army during the early days of the war. He made 3 special clones for himself Edge, Shield and Bullet (Dubbed the NIGHT OPS SFX) as his hired goons to help get him needed “materials” for future experiments.
All was going well for Toxin till he along with Lord Zarak got captured by the Autobots. His personal Transtector body was destroyed in the scuffle and now he hopes to break free and commandeer a new one.

Produced by Head Robots, you can now give your headless G1 figures a much needed upgrade. This figure is limited to only 100 pieces and limited to one per attendee.

Oh man just another reason I wish I was going earlier. At least I'm getting Stronghold although Toxin seems more exclusive. :( Now I gotta get my hands on him and PE-11!
