Well now we know what we’re getting in the Botcon 2012 boxset, but that just isn’t enough!!! It’s time to bite your nails and wag your tails because we are now going to wildly speculate on the additional exclusive toys to be offered at this year’s Botcon 2012!!!
3- Junkion troop builder
Since we seem to get troop builder sets each year, I’m going for broke and assuming we’ll get some new Junkion decos this year. Everyone wants them! Maybe they’ll even be EVIL junkions?!
2- Shattered Glass Evil Ironhide from classics Ironhide
Gotta re-use that mold right? A black Ironhide would be pretty sweet, and he’s shown up in the comic a time or two. Or even Ratchet instead?
1- Black Convoy from G2 Optimus Prime
This is so obviously going to happen that I shouldn’t even need to mention it. Will it be shattered Glass or straight up classics? I’m hoping for Classics instead of some weird Shattered Glass spin. There would be so many levels of double-negative that the toy might turn out bright yellow.
The only other speculation I can make at this point are molds that should / could be used. RTS Jazz, Universe Galvatron, Classics Tankor… these are all molds that haven’t been repurposed by Hasbro yet, except for Galvatron coming out as another version of Galvatron. There is also the Powerglide mold which Botcon has yet to use, but I’d put my money on Silverbolt before the latter. And don’t forget about those Cybertronian War for Cybertron molds…
The future is bright, let it shine until 2012!!!!
