Evil Rodimus, 'stach and all, on display for us all to drool over here at http://actoys.net/bbs/read.php?fid=99&tid=257813. Actoys.net has provided fans with a full gallery of pictures for the upcoming Evil Hot Rod figure from the 2008 BotCon set.

Counterpunch addendum:
"Despite initial grumblings about the selection of characters and even the idea behind the decos...this year's set is shaping up to look quite nice (Read: will likely be expensive down the road...)."

Botcon in Cincinatti, Ohio is a mere 16 days away!

Is it just me or does this entire Mirror Universe thing seem kind of pointless with only one Heroic Decepticon? I mean, in the "real" universe, the Autobots are often outnumbered, but never this badly.

Predacons- 3 small deceps
Megatron, Starscream - 2 very large deceps...

So not just one by any means, the 2 most dangerous/courageous now I suppose/ Decepticons... :P

Drench and his Minicon should round that group out and would make the total Decepticons = 7. (Which is what BotCon Pete told us there would be)

I'm beginning to see a pattern with these Rodimus repaints. It's almost as predictable as the White Primes.

I love the color scheme, but I can't help but fell like that the robot mode is a square box with a head and limbs attached to it. Perhaps I will just keep him in car mode....

I love this figure.

Let's PRAY you're right. I'd actually pay that. Pre-Botcon prices? Checked a couple of auctions and was shocked at this:

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?siteid=0&pub=5574891718&campid=5336631220&customid=&toolid=10001&mkevt=1&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2FTransformers-2008-BOTCON-Exclusive-Evil-Rodimus-RARE_W0QQitemZ120243998729QQihZ002QQcategoryZ753QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem%3F

!! And this from a seller with NO feedback! With over 3 days left!!!

Yikes. I hope a lot of people are willing to sell these after Botcon...I'm realistic but not insane. 8-}

Let's just say I support my hobby nicely enough with some free lance work. Tax return season was good to my family this year as well...

I fully realize that I could be staring at a $75-$100 figure after Botcon, but there's no way I'll get anywhere NEAR the $250+ mark for anything like that.

Megatron was not announced at this point. And, Minicons? Why not count their weapons as Decepticons as well?

Fine. You get credit for them, but only to the same value as a G1 cassette. And I think that's pretty generous. So, 2 Decepticons take their 3 "cassettes" out for a stroll and encounter 8 evil Autobots. Still not seeing the even.

Plop them up together on a dedicated "Shattered" shelf and see what sort of balance you get.

Hard to guess if you are being serious, or joking around here. I was simply pointing out that there are 2 very dangerous Decepticons, and 3 smaller versions of some of the most dangerous decepticons in history.

What I was saying is, there is more than one big- Megatron and Starscream.

The comic included more Decepticons, so they are more equal in it.

Relax, and enjoy yourself. This issue is only 3 weeks old. Not sure what brought you back to this now...
