Goldbug is a pretty car. The head seems out of place, though.

Possibly because of the rest of the body's colors. I bet if there was a few more blue details, the head would be fine.

Guess I know what I'm going to kitbash my extra Excellion into now..

Not really liking the purple Prime that much, but Goldbug looks good even with the out-of-place blue head.

Ooh! Perfect. I was actually thinking Hot Shot would be Jazz, but it looks like I was wrong. That came out really good.

Aye. I definitely like "'Till all are gone!" as well.

Goldbug is great, but doesn't look hugely evil...

Jazz is the Crosswise mold I believe.

As Nevermore subtly aluded to, Goldbug's head color actually does make sense, as an homage to the original toy: http://tfarchive.com/toys/reviews/g1_goldbug.php If anything, that much black is out of place - added for aesthetics (or a "Bumblebee" homage?), I guess.

I do like that evil OP, myself; GB's not bad, either.

Yeah, that's my guess after process of elimination. I just thought that Goldbug would be Crosswise and Jazz Hot Shot because all you have to do to Hot Shot's head is add a visor and you've got Jazz. I'm very pleased how it turned out though. Can't wait to see how the rest come out.

It would be cool if they did Grimmers in G2 colors. Probably not, but they've probably got a really cool color scheme set out for him.

I'm really wondering what they plan with Screamer since he already uses colors that are traditionally assigned to the autobots. Maybe a realistic color scheme to play up the disguise angle a little better? That would be cool.

Goldbug looks great, and Prime's pretty nifty too. The detailing is brilliant, certainly.

As ever, though, I think they may be out of my price bracket.

Interested to see the rest...

FYI Iacon packages (non-attending) are being pushed to the back of the queque in favor of attending guests. Anyone whose ordered the Iacon package after February 14 has been placed on a "wait list."

While we are consulting with the manufacturer to see if there is a way to increase the quantity of the boxed sets, we do not expect this will be possible, orders received after 02/14/08 will be put on a wait list.

Thanks for the overwhelming response! We appreciate the high esteem you have placed on the 2008 and all of our past year's BotCon sets. We will be sure to keep you updated on the situation.

Thanks for your support,

Brian
So yeah. If you're only joining the club to get the exclusives, but you aren't planning on attending the convention, you may want to hold off on sending out your registration form.

So why does Starscream look like Jetfire? If they're doing an exclusive, I was hoping they'd do more of an original paintjob at least. Oh well, at least it's better than the G1 circus colors.

So that's what Starfire, I mean Starscream, is going to look like? I would never guess that was him just by looking at him.

I didn't even think about that, but it does make sense with Jetfire being one of the more prominent Autobot jets.

Is that the voyager class Screamer? Bonus points for using a mold I don't have (I don't have Crosswise, but whatevs). I was actually thinking of picking up that version the other day. Now I won't have to. I hope they add a little more color to the head though. A bit too much white, but you can't win 'em all.

Yeah, I have one of those and he's about as tall as Classics Jetfire as depicted in of the above pics. I just looked at Jazz and Grimmy and I have to admit that none of these figures appeal to me at all. Yay! I'm not going to be sorry I missed out on a Botcon set!

Hmmm . . . aside from the references to killing and massacring, Jazz could pass as a bonafide Classics Jazz. Grimlock's done up in Trypticon colors. I like them. Now, we just need to see Razorclaw.
