Get it while they're hot. If you were unable to obtain any BotCon 2010 figures, then Pete Sinclair has some good news for you. All remaining 2010 BotCon stock has been put up on the Transformers Collectors' Club store. However the toys this year were quite popular, as only the Rapido and Cindersaur souvenir set remains. The five-figure box set, Scorch and Double Punch set, and Sharkticon 3-pack were all sold out at the convention. There's only a limited quantity remaining, so get a hold of BotCon history by checking out Rapido and Cindersaur's product page. Both TFCC members and non-members are capable of buying this set!

I would rather spend some of it on the upcoming domestic MP Grimlock release.

Ordered 1 of both this and the comic. I was just wondering about this - and the comic as well - over where Rapido's English bio was posted here on Seibertron. Why did there need to be an English bio posted, anyway? I'm kind of curious now.

Because the bio card that came with the toy was in Spanish. When you read the comic, you'll understand why.

I'm surprised these didn't sell out. In my opinion, this was the best souvenir set.

Cool. Looking forward to it.

For me it's a tie between this and the Sharkticons.

Cindersaur using the BW Megatron Anniversay mold seemed to put people off. I personally love that mold (and the gruesome color scheme used this year), however.

I don't mind the BW Anniversary Megatron mold, myself. I never picked up any of those figures, so it'll be cool to have this one.

I couldn't sell Cindersaur fast enough. To me it was the dud out of all the exclusives.

Just like I mentioned in my thread, Sharkticons were gone immediately as only 1000 were made, and the double punch sets were super popular as well. Was told after the show on sunday that the only sets left were cindersaurs.

personally I love the cindersaur set, but it was really lopsided compared to doublepunch scorch and ravage.

Man, why y'all peoples gotta be hatin' on my neezy fo' sheezy.

Yes, I am white.

Anyway, I feel like I'm one of the few people who really began to like Cindersaur when I got him in my hands. It's a unique choice of character on a mold no one thought they'd ever see again and the colour scheme and use of translucent plastic work very well together. And for anyone that had any love of the original Firecons, especially those who had/remember what the toy was like, it's a WONDERFUL update.

And if nothing else, he comes with Rapido. How could you not want it? In short, I think these are two figures that a lot of people passed up on from the pictures, but realized they made a mistake (hence the up in sales from TFCC after the con) when shown or given testimonies about the toy in person. Word to your mother.

Very good choice. This year's comic is the best I've seen FunPub do. I don't count '08 because that was Don & Simon, and their work is always top-notch (also they're not FunPub staff).

I was so dissappointed with the Cindersaur figure that the first time I waited in line I passed up on this set. I slept on it and bought it the next day so I would have all the figures for 2010. Glad I did cause Rapido looked great when I opened him.

I'd really like to get Rapido but I don't care too much for Cindersaur.

Um...okay.

I'm looking forward to Cindersaur coming later this month. I will admit I find his deco bizarre, but that's not at all a bad thing. I technically bought the set for Rapido (just like I bought Elita-1/Razorclaw for Elita-1), but the Firecon's gonna be a welcome addition.

The only other BotCon comic I've picked up is Wings of Honor (twice, both the actual BotCon version that had the schedule and the Diamond Select version that had the MTMTE bios in place of the schedule). I'm looking forward to reading it.

I really wish Rapido was in the 5 piece set instead of Streetstar. I bought that set but I can't afford any more right now.

I already have the Cybertron Megatron so I really don't need Cindersaur but I don't think its a bad mold. I always thought that and the Cybertron Optimus Prime would've made a good Snapdragon and Apeface set.

I like that idea.

My only complaint is that the Headmaster components – Apeface's partner Spasma and Snapdragon's partner Krunk - would be lost, as would the Horrorcons' jet modes. The triple-changer gimmick's loss I can survive, I'm just slightly tired of Headmasters not being Headmasters anymore is all.
