For the past few weeks, the BotCon exclusives have been leaked one-by-one over the past month ... Transformers Animated Stunticons Dead End, Breakdown, Drag Strip, and Wildrider. A highly possible list of unannounced BotCon exclusives has been circulating the Internet and word-of-mouth for a few weeks now. I've heard the same information from multiple sources from around the globe. This marks the 4th time I've heard this list but I'm still considering all of this a huge rumor until we hear officially from BotCon. Make sure you keep checking back to find out if these figures are officially revealed from the BotCon folks at TransformersClub.com


My source also informed me that Toxitron would be this year's freebie, but considering the freebies in the past I would think this would be unlikely. Previous BotCons have had a scout or deluxe class sized figure as the freebie. Financially, it would most likely make more sense to continue with that tradition. It is also possible that Toxitron will be the custom class exclusive instead of the regular freebie, which would make a little more sense. Of course, it could be neither and just be one of the regular convention exclusives.

Is this list 100% accurate? Are there more? Less? Time will tell! Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

What about Motormaster's scout car (Menasor's chest plate)?

The colours of G2 Sideswipe are close to the Roller Car's...

And that meshes with the Five/Six Member dicktease from the Twitter feed.

EDIT: Also, Ironfist from Swindle please. Not Ratchet. That mold isn't very good.

You consider this confirmed because you've heard if 4 times? Well color me optimistic that a 5th report totally contradicts the others, because I've been vehemently defending the Animated set, but if that's all we're getting outside the box, count me out. I know I should be following the Botcon storylines better, but this list seems to deviate too far from the appointed theme. Sure fans got pissed because Games of Deception finished up a Seeker set that should've been mass-released, but that sort of led to those CHUGUR Seekers getting mass-released later on. Since there's practically no chance of Hasbro making that happen for the other Animated Screamclones, why hold back on what every Animated fan has been clamoring for? Instead, the only possible Seeker this year is an obscure joke? One I admittedly find funny, but which will lead to the punch-line or TFA fans begging the Knock-Off companies to crank out the Starscream repaints all the official TF sources keep ignoring.

It's not that I've heard it 4 times ... it's the four wildly different sources I've heard the rumor from. I changed that sentence to be less specific because this should be considered a rumor until BotCon makes their official announcements.

Toxitron from the Classics Prime mold would be freakin sweet. I would definatly like one of those, but I would wager that it's the repaint class figure, since it is kinda out there.

Too complicated. Any more than a deluxe and there is no way you'd finish it in time. I'm predicting Chromia/Flare Up/Paradron Medic.

Okay so we got Pyro last year, this year we're getting Ironfist, hopefully we can get Rotorstorm from Energon Bulkhead and Snipe from Generations Thunderwing to complete the set of euro-guys from LSOTW.

All I have to say about some of these color combos is...What happened in G2 should've STAYED in G2! Between the Stunticons and Toxitron I'm hoping their colors come with a volume knob. Have to say that Voyager Prime over Wreck-Gar for Motormasters body came as no surprise to me whatsoever. I know some of you are excited over these though so I will say enjoy your BotCon sets. They did make some good choices for molds this year and I will admit to being curious about the Autobot army builder figures so I'm going to try to keep an open mind about the rest of the reveals.

Why don't they just use the Laser Rod Prime mold that was meant for Toxitron in the first place? We never go that toy and it's still a good mold.

Too old and too big with the trailer. Try looking at the Club with big puppy dog eyes.

I'm having some doubts about the list, especially with Thundercracker. We already have a Generations Thundercracker underway, so the mold is currently in use, so count him out (last year it was Gen. Thrust's fault).

Action Master/G2 Thundercracker. Bet it.

This list seems both bland and unlikely....

1) We still don't know who will be Motormaster, it could be Prime, it could be Wreck-Gar, it could Bulkhead, it could even be Sentinel Prime if they are putting 6 figures in this years set.

2) If Motormaster is not Prime, chances of getting a Toxitron are slim to none, leaning towards none. And he will not be the freebie if he is included.

3) These troop builder packs suck.... I think it's a waste of a set, and a cheap way to scam people out of money for essentially 3 identical figures. I wish they would do away with them, but this is the most likely set you will get.

4) Shattered Glass Galvatron is a good guess, and one I would like to see.

5) If we're talking about the Ironfist from the club comic I'd be very surprised if they use either mold for him. They just don't fit. If there was an Ironfist in Animated that looked like Ratchet/Ironhide, then maybe. I think a lot of people are forgetting the character Over Run from the club comic from the Energon Springer mold. since hes not getting a release from the club, I would expect to see him in the throwback set over anything else mentioned here.

6) An Animated G2 Sideswipe? That really doesnt make much sense. That doesnt fit anywhere. A G1 Sideswipe from Rodimus maybe, but not G2.

7) Action Master Thundercracker there's no way. Simply because Botcon doesn't re-use molds.

What your most likely going to get is

Freebie- silver invincible Ironhide
Set 1- Wasp (Bumble Bee remold)and Starscream Clone
Set 2- Autotrooper 3 pack
Throwback set- SG Galvatron (Evack remold) and/or Over Run (Energon Springer Remold)
or someone else that no one has thought of yet.

Sorry this sounds rather lackluster, but most likely what you will get. I don't really care though since I'm not going and don't like Animated.
