Every year Fun Publications, in coordination with Hasbro, puts on on of the biggest Transformers conventions in the world. The convention, BotCon, touts a slew of exclusive figures each year that are highly sought after on the secondary market and usually command a premium price. This years convention was held at The Dolphin Resort in Disney World. Each year the figures have an overlying theme, and this years set was a re-visitation of Generation 2 characters aptly titled Generation 2: Redux. The full list of figures available this year are as follows:
Box Set: Free with Primus Package or $305 for Non-Attendees
Attendee Figure: Free to all Primus Package Attendees
Souvenir Set #1: $79 (Limited to 1,500 sets)
Souvenir Set #2: $72 (Limited to 1,500 sets)
Souvenir Set #3 (The Sharkticon Clones): $59 (Limited to 1,000 sets)
A Fallen Empire Toys Review! The unpainted black plastic doesn't look great, but if you're okay with the mold it's a worthwhile purchase.
A Fallen Empire Toys Review! A very strong figure that works well as the character it's intended to be.
A Fallen Empire Toys Review! A very nice figure, whether you want it as Slicer and Shattered Glass Wheeljack
A Fallen Empire Toys Review! Th0r4z1n3 would suggest you wait until you find a good deal on Sky-Byte if you really want him.
A Fallen Empire Toys Review! Th0r4z1n3 wasn't thrilled with these figures, but acknowledges that they're older molds, and sees a future for them as Sky-Byte's lieutenants.
A Fallen Empire Toys review! The only figure that didn't sell out at Botcon 2010 is Th0r4z1n3's favorite figure from the set!
A Fallen Empire Toys Review! Th0r4z1n3 wound up liking this mold more than he expected, but it wouldn't be his first-choice recommendation from Botcon 2010.
