First Look at BotCon Souvenirs Via Comic
Thanks again to the Allspark’s tireless Powered Convoy, we can bring you a first look at some of BotCon 2015’s souvenir figures, which are yet to go on sale, but star in the convention comic.
First up is the Diaclone 2-pack, which includes Burn Out from the Thrilling 30 Skids mold and Lift-Ticket from the Thrilling 30 Hoist mold. These are based on pre-Transformers Diaclone color schemes.
Next is the Generation 2 2-pack, which includes General Optimus Prime from the Thrilling 30 Roadbuster mold and Sgt. Hound from the Thrilling 30 Autobot Scoop mold. Hound features a new head sculpt, and this pair is based on unreleased Generation 2 Auto Roller redecoes. They aren’t pictured here, but Hound retains the Scoop mold’s two Targetmaster weapons, which are redecoed into Dia and Cline, the pilots for Burn Out and Lift-Ticket respectively.
Finally is the Waruder 4-pack, which includes four redecoes of the Thrilling 30 Waspinator mold. These figures draw inspiration from the cancelled ‘Halloween Horrorcon’ Transmetal Waspinator, Fox Kids Transmetal (and/or Shattered Glass) Waspinator, and Diaclone Warudaros, along with a fourth that is perhaps based on BotCon 2007 Bug Bite?
