I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

Can anyone point me to the wiki topic on what is under animated transformers helmets? I know I saw it a few weeks back. Also it is my birthday! So my wish for the forums is "Everyone take care and be safe" I think that's a reasonable request em?

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Also I got my new Pc at last.

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

I still have it. Not letting it go.

Anyway I just ordered a copy of Allspark Almanac and the HoS graphic novel. Can't wait to see da trainsformers!

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Very true.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 12:51 PM)

I have had little experience buying botcon exclusives before now, I vaguely know that they'll cost several times more than retail, but aside from that, I don't know what to expect?

How much should I be saving for a secondhand SG Treadshot, and what would be the best channel to get one if I'm not going to the convention?

I got Skybite off Ebay for 60-70 dollars from the Redux set. I'd say have a hundred ready to go and hope for less.

It's also hard to tell if Treadshot is going to be hotter than the other inhabitants of the box set. I know that when I was shopping around on eBay right after 2010 Botcon Breakdown was a good $20-30 more than some of the other figures in that set.

I would echo that guessing between 70-100 is relatively reasonable.
You've got to have a goat.

I would think by being a non-G1 homage he's likely not to be as popular among "the masses".

The best place to look would likely be the BST board here. There are a lot of Allsparkers splitting up and selling off their box sets.

Treadshot BIN $74.99

$70-$100 range is dead on. Hope you get one Caboose.

I'd expect the price to drop, unless there is a big demand for this set.

Did any of the other exclusives sell out besides SG Prime/Kick-Out?

I'm pretty surprised by the prices BBTS and TFSource are listing these at. They're by far cheaper than any previous after Botcon offerings they've listed. Ebay prices even seem tame, and history shows that prices are usually insane the weekend of Botcon. Were production numbers just really high on souvenir pieces this year, or is the interest in this year's figures kind of low?

Thanks, Walky for the confirmation.

It could be a combination of both. Not many like the Shattered Glass theme.

It's such a nice looking set, though.

It happens every year - I see individual figures as great or lame, but when I see the whole set together, it looks fantastic.

I'm very excited to get everything when I pick it up at the end of May. I even got a headband and trading card set! Woo!
