Botcon Rapido en el casa

Botcon 2010 Generation 2 Rapido robot mode

So turquoise, so goooood!

Yeah yeah, every other Transformers site has already posted this photo found on ACtoys.net but I just couldn’t help it. Plus, I need to follow-up on the ‘rumor‘ that Rapdio was indeed going to be part of the attendee exclusive sets at this year’s Botcon in Disney World.

As weird as I was expecting this toy to be, the photo above looks quite nice.  The apparently remolded head is also a nice surprise.  Oh Botcon 2010 non-attendee giftset, shall I order thee?


Botcon 2010 brochure posted – G2 Clench, G2 Streetwise & Skybyte confirmed

Botcon 2010 Skybyte???

Could this be close to Botcon 2010 Skybyte? digibash by Whitemocha photo from Seibertron.com

Well they have given up the ghost – the characters in the upcoming Botcon 2010 set have been revealed – G2 Pyro, G2 Breakdown, G2 Streetwise, G2 Clench, and… SKYBYTE?

Apparently we’ve been thrown a curve ball and Predacon Skybyte will be entering the fray this year.  Most are making guesses at Energon Sharkticon as the Skybyte mold and Onslaught as Clench.  Streetwise is also expected to be Prowl, especially since we already know that mold will be used as Rapido.

My guess is that Streetwise will be his G2 incarnation, which is a jet black police car.  It would be a good counterpart to G2 Breakdown.

If you want to see the brochure for yourself, visit botcon.com and you can see it all for yourself.

With the brochure finally revealed, is registration right around the corner?  This little Collecticon definitely thinks so…  Let’s hope that online registration doesn’t go down in the opening moments, and get your trigger fingers ready!


Botcon 2010 G2 Rapido rumored!

So is the first hint at what we may be seeing at this year's Botcon?


The first rumored figure for Botcon 2010 has been rumored to be Generation 2 Rapido! The news comes from the rather reliable source of S250. Two years ago, S250 accurately recounted the upcoming Shattered Glass set with stunning accuracy. This does not mean that we will see Rapido this year for certain, but the likelihood is somewhere around 75% by my guesstimate.

So maybe instead of seeing fun G2 redecos of old G1 figures, we may see some of the lesser known bots and cons from this bygone era. WhiteMocha’s G2 set isn’t looking too far off now…
