Crazy or serious, make some predictions then look back to see how close you were.


People will complain about the mold, character choice or color scheme for some of the unrevealed exclusive toys. Either because they are bad choices or Hasbro should have released them at retail.

Someone at tfw2005 will complain that the exclusives are dumb overpriced repaints.

People will be jealous that the custom class figure isn't available to everyone.

There won't be any of the proposed forty Generations 2013 toys revealed.

The Combaticons, Jazz, Shockwave, Starscream and Optimus Prime toys from WFC will be hyped a lot as if they were completely new reveals. Only the brightly colored Combaticons will be released. More of the game will be shown.

Focus will be on Prime and new Prime toys, mainly Cyberverse.

Hasbro will show attendee exclusive artwork that non-attendees won't ever get to see.

Many dumb questions will be asked to Hasbro and Hasbro won't be forthcoming with informative answers.

It all began in '84. Kept on rollin' in '85. The pieces were in place in '86, and it came to an end in '87. But now it comes, and here we go. Transformers is here again. Nothing's gonna stop it 'cause it's 1988!

Hasbro to reveal plans for slowly releasing the FE molds through store exclusives.
New Prime molds will be shown but mostly old characters at different size classes from their previous releases.
Monkeys will fly out of David Willis' butt.

Some ne'er-do-wells will start a huge argument at the Hasbro panel, chaos will ensue and hate will overtake the hall until Peter Cullen walks in, opens the Matrix, and cures everyone of their hate an anger. This will mark an end to the Botcon Wars and everyone will march forward to a new era of peace, happiness, and exclusives.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

But he will keep his shorts on, I hope. Well, at least as long as they don't release another Hot Shot from AEC, then all bets would be off.

While I'm pretty certain they'll show SDCC exclusives, I wonder if they'll show any NYCC stuff as well.
My FlickR folder...

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

If they release another AEC Hot-Shot, Willis will likely tear through any pants he's wearing.

Playable Hot Shot to be announced for Fall of Cybertron based on Armada Hot Shot! Toy revealed! David Willis asked by Hasbro to give first impressions and given the toy to take home!

Bruticus to be made in very limited quantities, available on eHobby only.

Hasbro decides there's no money in toys anymore, easier to be an entertainment media company. No more transformers forever.

Someone in the club was responsible for the security leaks, and has stolen every Botcon exclusive. No more club forever.

Brian Savage now wishes to be known as Doctor Savage, and begins carrying a purple and gray cat, is only seen from behind.


... So now when none of these come to pass, I will consider Botcon a resounding success!

On the bright side:
the majority of the 40 Generations will be the WFC/FOC cast. ALL OF THEM.

Kre-O Defensor and Menasor

Prime Defensor toy revealed into two sets; Cyberverse (four legion+one commander) and Mainline (four revealers+one powerizer), alongside Prime Jazz, Sideswipe, Perceptor, and Scattorshot. Magnus will get a Mainline Powerizer AND Weaponizer, and will be in the show

Reveal that Bumblebee will get his voice back

Reveal that we get a Wheeljack level in FOC with the Wreckers, and have designs for Impactor, Rotorstorm, Pyro, and Roadbuster revealed

Reveal that some of the Protectobots are in FOC
In the land of the dead, heck boy ain't it grand?

Someone will try to get the stupid Vehicon "Steve" nickname canonized.

"Y U NO RELEASE FIRST EDITION?!?!?!"

"Will ______ be in Prime?" Followed by hesitant answers, and a planned reveal later on being ruined.

This one may actually happen: All the FoC toys will have tags that say "Now Available" to much consternation.

My prediction is we learn of almost nothing new, except for stuff they can't take pictures of, Hasbro saving everything for a toy more general toy convention.

Predictions -

Weekday News:

*The Con exclusives are exactly who the leaked list said. Some are pleased. Some disapointed.

* The Custom class figure is cool enough to create envy.

* A couple of new Cyberverse and a couple of unseen Prime repaints are seen in the display cases as Hasbro sets up.


Weekend News:

* Prime is doing well and will introduce 1 more new charcter before the end of the season. Random 5 minutes of an upcoming episode will be shown. Arcee will yell and jumpkick someone. Rescue Bots will get a token mention but nothing else, no new toys mentioned or shown beyond the couple from Toy Fair.

* IDW is doing well and James Roberts will be cloned so MtMtE can be a weekly. Grimlock and at least one Wrecker will be seen in books before the end of the year.

* Hasbro will show a hand full of images of 3 or 4 2013 Generations figures but there will be no photographs. They will tease the idea of a second combiner but no more than that. We might get to see Grimlock. There will be 2 or three new Prime things but mostly stuff we've already seen from Japan. I'll be kinda disappointed in how little we see that's of interest to me personally but there'll be one or two pretty neat things that counter that.

* Fun Pup will show off 2 or 3 exlusives for the coming months/year and they'll be really nice figures/concepts. Though at least one will be Shattered Glass something that will be a total pass for me.


In Conclussion: There will be awsome stuff but not as much as we'd like to dream of there being... Some surprises that are promising... And an overall speculation over whether they were saving the really good stuff for San Diego.


-ZacWilliam, hopes they blow all expectations and predictions out of the water.

Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

We will see nothing new, Hasbro will dodge all questions about how they're handling the brand, half the previously announced toys will be cancelled, and all chances of ever getting FE Bulkhead and Optimus will disappear forever.





With expectations that low, I'm BOUND to be pleased, right?




Right?
