Yizhi521 on TF08.net has posted images of what looks to be a possible Botcon exclusive. The piece is a redeco of the Energon Mirage mold, in colors reminiscent of Banzai-Tron's. In addition to that, there would also appear to be a image of Flak, another one of this year's Botcon exclusives. To view the images, click here.

I think this one looks much better than some of the figures in the set. I like it.

Really interesting.

Banzai-Tron perhaps?

That's actually a really interesting possibility...

I still think it's Banazi-Tron, but if it isn't, I think you called it with Clench (and are the first to do so that I've seen).

Hmm. I always liked this mold but never got any version of it. Probably won't get this one either but here's hoping they come out with another for a character I collect sometime.

Oh please oh please oh please be Banzai-Tron!

If it is Banz, my opinion of the Set just went up.
I knew FunPub wouldn't let me down entirely.

It looks like this figure is bagged alone so I am assuming it will probably be the "attending" figure. Thoughts?

All the souvenir figures are bagged separately. A set has a larger bag containing the individually bagged separate figures.

The more I see and hear about this set, the more I am looking forward to owning it, thanks to a certain helpful gentleman ;)

Good mold, Good colors, Good character.

Looks like a winner to me.

It seems that the attendee exclusives are more than making up for the lackluster reaction to the box set.

Banzai-Tron! Now that's an exclusive I can support. Awesome(...and not overused) mold, great colors, and a cool character. Can't wait to see the 'bot mode pics.

Looks like Tidlewave to me. Which would be ironic based on the creation of Mirage. Clench'd be cool, but then I'd want a Pyro. CD REd maybe?

Bagged alone: Nope, to big to be attending, and the pieces in last year's after-arrive set were bagged alone then bagged together.

I'll have to admit, I wasn't really familiar with the character of Banzai-Tron so I looked it up. Is there only the Action Master version?

Based on that, I'm not totally sold that this is what we are seeing.

Still, I look forward to finding out!

PS - Now that you guys reminded me, I do remember the "big bag" with the 2-packs.

Banzai!!!! This will be a good picker-upper since the rest of the set is kinda so-so.

If it's Banzai-Tron I will need one, assuming it's done right. If it's Clench, I'll think about it a little more. I remember how much that mold bugs me with it's fiddliness, and parts popping, loose legs...

If I were going the add-ons would certainly excite me more than the box set.

A mate of mine owns a fig in ths mold (a MIRAGE), and the joints on its thighs wear VERY loose. The legs would snap in half under almost any pressure, I assume it was a safety feature. Is it likely this would be altered, 'cause it was quite frustrating.
