And unfortunately, you will have to attend the event now, or buy the set off eBay to get one of your own, but for those that have ordered, here's a look at what you will be getting. The containment unit for your group of Stunticons!

I agree, but I have to wonder if it homages another racing type piece of media. That's usually how Wyatt rolls.

"The" Motormaster? Don't like that.

Man, not alot going on there. I do like the 'Cepticon/ Crash test dummy logo! I am so heartbroken! :sad: I was hoping to pick a non-attendee package after this weekend.... Anyone want to sell a loose set? :D

That's pretty ugly, I have to say.

Oh, it certainly does look like a retro/classic racing logo but a racing or battle scene would have been a much better looking display box. I just prefer the images on Descent Into Evil, Dawn of Future's Past, Games of Deception and Shattered Glass. Even so, I like this box better than the Wings of Honor box.

I do, however, really like the T-Shirt for this year.

Liking the box art, itll look great on my shelf. And its in a rather sexy purple, which is the coolest color for Transformers anything.

I'm indifferent on this. The artwork that has been revealed from the comic is definitely more interesting to me than this boxset. I guess I was hoping for something exciting that showed off their personalities or part of their story or something. Would love to know if this homages something because I think that might make it more appealing to me than it is right now. Better than the '09 set for sure!

I'm actually really looking forward to this year's comic book. I think it might really help me fall for these Stunticons. Hopefully they've gone something really awesome and entertaining planned for the book. That might make or break this set for me.

Maybe I'm biased because it was my first botcon, but Wings of Honor was an amazing set. What's wrong with it to you?

I actually like the box quite a bit for this set. It kind of reminds me of my dad's drag racing stories.

I really am disappointed about the Stunticon set, I am hoping that the other exclusive will be way better. Maybe it’s a new figure that separates into combiner kibble!

I was hoping it might be an homage to The Italian Job movie poster(the original with Michael Caine, not the crappy remake) due to the name, but no dice.

Here's what I'm referencing, btb:

They really need to release Classics Bumblebee/Alternity Bumble in red, blue and white with Union Jacks on the roof. I would pay handsomely for that.

I was thinking the exact same thing when I replied earlier. Did a search and came up with the same image you did.

I was referring to the box for the 09 set that just had the Elite Guard logo. It was kind of "blah" after some of the amazing artwork that BotCon had done from 2005 to 2008.
