Trying to get information on the next Botcon has been harder than trying to pull healthy teeth, but we finally get a little hint of what we can expect at the Transformers Club's official event.

According to the latest issue of the Transformers Club Magazine, Brian Savage tells us that three of the Botcon exclusive figures will have remolded heads. As to the who, what, where and when, no word has been mentioned as of yet. This number is one short of the total exclusive figures, which had four remolded heads in Shattered Glass Goldbug, Blurr, Megatron and Jazz/Richochet.

And I smell a million PO'ed fans if that's true. It would be 2007 Seekers all over again. :roll:

I really hope the exclusives are'nt Animated molds. I want Universe molds.

Very interesting...

Note to First Gen: your link to the TFCC Homepage is broken. Just a minor typo (you left a . out after the www), but for me it goes to a Mediacom search page when I try to use the link. No big; its just that if your gonna link to another page, the link should work.

That makes 2 of us. It's not that I don't like animated, but I would prefer more traditional transformers in my box set.

Am I the only one who would rather see them go back to just a couple of figs per show, rather than the huge set and all the the extra door figs, and this day only figs, and this section of the 'Con only figs? Having a 20 piece set, plus all the hunt-and-find extras just seems, I dunno, cheaping of the spirit of "exclusive". :-?

I don't know if you're the only one, but I'm gonna have to go with the figure heavy exclusives side. I only go anymore for the figures. Besides seeing fellow TF fans in one big ole meeting spot, the next best thing for me are the Con figures. I don't buy many figures at the con cause I pretty much have what I need and can get what I need at better prices online as well. I'll occasionally find something that I've been hunting for, but not too often.

what happenrd to them creating their own charaters, at least that way its harder to piss off people by doing exclusives such as the 2007 set.

This years set was a great idea, as it doesnt feck up the rest of the fans abilty to get figures from the other lines!

Some things I'd like to see happen:


Nemesis Prime (from combiner Armada Prime)
Motormaster (from Classics Prime)
Elita One (from Thunderblast)
Seaspray (from Cybertron Shortround)
Beastbox (from that Real Gear controller monkey)

They could go with a Stunticon theme to go with our Drag Strip, or even a Soundwave cassette theme using Real Gear molds.

Basically anything but Animated. ANYTHING.

Well, Ratchet will come out this spring sometime, but those other two would be pure greatness.

Brian Savage of the Transformers Club has posted some new information on the official Club boards about the upcoming Botcon 2009 figure set. Here's what he had to share:

OK, while we are working on finalizing the convention details, brochure and registration forms, we wanted to start the speculation game:

"For one young Autobot..." is all we have revealed so far. While we tend to guard the convention sets and souvenirs closely, I want to let you know that we are very excited about what we have waiting in the wings!

The set we have planned features a team of select Autobots never before featured in G1 in this way. The timeline we are spotlighting is new, yet very familiar...

Let the games begin!

Brian


G1 molds? Autobots? A possible counter to 2007's "Games of Deception" set? Only time will tell.

It could be an all new continuity, like last year.

It'd be nice to see all new characters made from the Universe moulds, or an expansion of the Fun Pub Classics fiction. I got my Springer and Huffer today, and they are brilliant, it'd be nice for that universe to be expanded.


Diaclone Sunstreaker deco?

My thought from that statement was the second wave of G1 Autobots Cars, possibly reusing energon molds.

A team of Hot Shot's or Wheelie's? :P
