He's missing the famous BM Rattrap 'Wheelchair Mode', but I do appreciate the Beast Machines Reference :D

Kinda plain, but also very nice
Springer toy is awesome, I don't think there is any way to stuff it up.

However for a Duocon, it needs to be two vehicles merging into one :-)

I do like the idea of more modern duocons but also fond of tripple changers, so either or suits me
Soundwave superior. Autobots inferior

Reveal Number #3 today, and the figure is... Shattered Glass Stepper.

Can't say I'm excited about this one. At the moment I'm ony after the Battletrap, and I have a feeling that's how most people are feeling at the moment.

Reveal Number Four is.. Megatron "The Boss" (based loosely on his DOTM Appearance), retooled from Arms Micron Breakdown. He also comes with three Arms Microns.

I don't mind this. Would have liked it more if it was named something other than Megatron though.

Final reveal for this year's Botcon, and it's way outta left field.. It's OilMaster, with pretender shell!

Brand new Pretender Shell made especially for this, sculpted by the folks at Boss Fight Studio.

Inner robots (because Oilmaster is a double pretender) is a redeco of Generations Legends Swerve and his Targetmaster minicon buddy.

This is incredibly unexpected. I wonder how much it will affect the cost of the set.
