Looking at previous years botcon exclusives. Even knock-offs.
Part of me wants to spring for a Rapido, but my birthday is in a few weeks.
ZacWilliam, gonna be hinting something fierce for a few toys so...
Yeah, I'm very pleased with Rapido. He embodies g2 for me. The problem is now I'm looking at getting myself a Brakedown to battle him. Which is...yikes. Hence the ko desire creeping into my otherwise non-ko thoughts. The color scheme is just too exciting, on any figure.
Rapido is pretty great. I've never loved the Classics Prowl mold, but that head sculpt is just fantastic, and the colors are lovely. I'd really recommend finding one, even if you feel like I do about the mold.
I also really dig last year's SG Galvatron--I don't care about the fiction, so I just like the idea that a Decepticon leader is disguised as a nice friendly rescue chopper. Very movie-Barricadey.
Those two and the keychain Mini-Bots are the only BotCon exclusives on my shelves (I have others from 2011 that I finally got around to listing for sale
), but I should have a 2012 bagged set once the non-attendings ship. So I'm gonna try to be patient until then, and not go digging on eBay for ones I've missed.
But I might have to make an exception for Spinister. Because I want Spinister.
