New Botcon Exclusive Set Toys Revealed

Posted by:
Jason at 2008-02-21 9:13 pm has updated with sneek previews of two more of the characters from their exclusive convention set coming to this spring's convention. Check out to see pics of Grimlock (decoed with homage to Trypticon) and Jazz.
In related news, prototype shots of the "The Heroic Starscream" (decoed in the style and colors of Jetfire) from this same Botcon exclusive set have been sighted on ebay.

And that's the Voyager Starscream, the one we didn't get except for a TRU Thrust redeco.

And Jazz looks good, but not so evil-looking like TryptiGrimlock there.

Really love Jazz's head there. I may have had complaints about Nightbeat's head but I can't even nit-pick about the sculpting with this head. It really is perfect.

Gald to hear I'm not the only one, quickfire. I think this is a terrible idea. It's so friggin' cliche...

Those are cool paint jobs on those figures, nice new head sculpts on Goldbug and Jazz. Jazz looks like a Starscream gray. They should have made his eyes purple to give him a more evil look. I remember seeing a pic of Grimlock as the Classics line was just coming out. Everyone was wondering if that repaint was going to be Trypticon. Now we all know. But I'm not disapointed one bit that I can't order this set, after all, they're just repaints with a few new headsculpts. The only repaints I would have liked to have was last years botcon set, mainly the seeker jets.

Yeah Sabrblade, your right, that Starscream in that two pack does have Thrust Colors. The packaging still says Starscream. I wanted that figure in Starscream colors, so I went on Ebay and bought the Takara version, I don't regret it one bit. That paint job on that mold with Jetfire colors, those belong to Jetfire. They could have used some blue and silver and still used white instead and kept the head the way they have it now.

would rock...if you didn't have to spend over 1000 bucks to get them. At least now since the iacon packages are sold out

They all look cool, but grimlock could have been better.

Jazz is OK

Grimmy look boring in beast mode - but ok in robot mode.

Starscream I like - even if he looks more like Stormjet than Starscream... Perhaps a little blue might have helped - rather than slavishly copying something else.

I still don't get how Jazz is supposed to be evil when he doesn't look evil like Prime, Goldbug, and Grimlock. The way I know he's evil is because of the purple Autobot symbol on his gun and the "Massacre Racing" and "Kill to win" decos on him.

Scorpomike,they do not make botcon figures TWO YEARS AHEAD!
That is just what the grimlock prototype looked like.

i wonder if next years theme is like rodimus prime returns and kills all the decepticons or captures them. plus thanks TriPredRavage.
Autobot Jazz said,  - 2008-02-23 10:20:19
Wow Jazz is hot. I always wanted to have the Crosswise figure and now that? AWESOME. It couldn't have been gettin' better. Jazz is perfect and Goldbug looks also pretty cool.
I like the ironic sayings on their paint jobs.
"Till all are gone!"
The idea of autobots being bad troubles me.If the decepticons turned good, that's a little easier to digest.
