Botcon.com have updated their website with a new image contain darkening images of Classics Optimus Prime (or could it be Ultra Magnus?) and Cybertron Crosswise/Smokescreen with a third un-identifiable bot beside them.

Also adorning the updated page is a short Quicktime video that promises that "everything you thought you knew will be shattered."
Turn your sound up too, for at the end, a reversed version of the "More than Meets the Eye" riff is played.

Could we be getting some figures based on IDW's Dark Universe? Who knows...

Check out the Botcon.com page for full information.

A date and Location for Botcon 2008 are yet to be confirmed, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest news as it happens.

The unidentified bot is the Hotshot/Excellion mold. I had mine nearby and can confirm that that is what it is.

Well I don't have a personal pic but this should work.
Excellion
If you look at the right leg on the shadowed fig and this one you'll notice they both have the chevron looking things on the shin and the backpack section match,though the shadowed one has the wings deployed.
