Always wondered what this strange con with the cow head emblem is about, really. But is it bad that I find their exclusives more appealing than botcon's? XD (sick and tired of shattered glass! If you wanna give us a nice repaint...just make the repaint who it really is! Like we all know evil tracks is really road rage -.-)

I'm thrilled to see that the word is spreading! It makes my job easier!!! :grin:

Excelsior Moo Believers!
As you have read in the fist post above, the Second Dairycon Exclusive revealed for the 2012 show is... BARN!

Besides the first teaser image for Barn, the other fine folks at Dairycon have revealed the Bio page for both Barn & the previously revealed Neoknight (or as I've started to calling him, "Not-Blackrock")!

For your convenience, I've posted those bios below:

Image
Allegiance: Dairycon
Name: Barn
Function: Houser
Quote: You Couldn't Hit the Broadside of a Brawn!"

Profile:
When asked for one word to describe his friend BARN, Steers replied, 'Frustrated'. As STEERS herds the Dairycons, BARN houses them. Always hassling moochers for rent money, and constantly fighting to keep his properties up to code. In fleshling parlance, he'd be referred to as a, 'slum lord' (though BARN prefers the term, 'freelance rental agent'.) He often uses the Dairycon accessory WRENCH IN THE WORKS to fix the problem. Has continually tried to evict HEFFER under the "no-pets" clause of his rental agreement. Smooth Texas drawl often mistaken for friendliness; BARN is actually quite Surly.

Abilities:
As the largest Dairycon, BARN can haul and store the other Dairycons for ground transport over long distances. When threatened, BARN deploys 'The Big Package', an assortment of heavy weapons. He is admired by Amish people, who are somewhat confused that he isn't red.

Weaknesses:
Low cowchip tolerance. Moochers like (secret!) get on BARN's nerves. Unable to house him for any length of time. Has told the others to, "Jettison some weight or he'll never make it back to MooBase." Has a habit of leaving the door open and then closing it when Ass-09 has already gotten out. For some reason, everyone thinks he's going to die in, 'Dairycon the Moo-vie'.


Image
Allegiance: Evil Decepticon
Name: NeoKnight
Function: Entrepreneur; former Neo Knight Commander
Quote: "I'm not Robert Downey Junior!"

Profile:
After a mission to Cybertron in which he barely survived, BlackRock returned to Earth, changed his name, and promptly disbanded the neo knights. Tired of the pressure, GB and Josie went off and got married, had kids, sailed the Riveria... when the call came in, and Earth needed help, BlackRock contacted the Autobots, to no avail. Tired of having his calls ignored after 27 years, BlackRock instead contacted the Dairycons.

It's been downhill from there.

Abilities:
He is in typical condition for a human of his age with no superpowers who engages in moderate physical activity :-) As a venture capitalist and former captain of industry, BlackRock has connections to nearly every facet of earthen society. It is thru him that many of the Dairycon's secret projects have been funded.

Weaknesses:
You mean, when he isn't dealing with someone wrecking an oil rig, stealing an aerospace firm, paying alimony, crashing his racecar, getting stranded on an alien planet....?



Of course, these are only the first two of FIVE upcoming reveals for Dairycon 2012! Stay tuned for even *MORE* leading up to the show in April!

I've only heard good things about the Dairycon experience. I've heard it is a much more intimate convention. I would love to go! Actually, one of my most sought after figures of all time, anywhere, is a Dairycon exclusive. Pretender Convoy. Absolutely awesome!

Man, that Pretender Convoy was a work of GENIUS! An amazing piece, and as it used the Huffer mold for the little Convoy figure (and as I'm a fan of the Huffer mold & character), *I'd* love to get a hold of one someday too...

Get a hold of it? Are you not involved with Dairycon yourself? I figured you of all people would have one. I saw it on ebay,... once. Sold for like $500.

I *am* a staffer, though no; I do not have Pretender Convoy... There were only 5 or so made & they were all raffled off at the show...

I *did* get to handle one though, from someone who got one & proceeded to open the package & play with it! :D

That's what I'm talking about man, open it! Feel it, love it! I will get one some day, It is IMO, the greatest Prime concept ever. I mean, Peter Cullen (come on we all know who "Pete" is) with an Optimus Prime inside? Just splendid.

This is actually better than the Botcon Soundwave.

The exclusive "Great Lakes Country Club" ACCESSORY is better than "SuGar Soundwave", but that's not for a few years at DairyCon. (a club that looks like Lake MI, sick of the swords and axes) Trying to think of what I can convince the fans to BUY as an accessory to dairyCon exclusive... Cha ching, except DairyCon are free... Grumble grumble.
