Welcome to the Powet Top 5, where we explore the top (and bottom) 5 items we think are relevant to any of a variety of topics that span the imagination. Sit back, read, and respond.
This year, the Tranformers Club Comic takes a trip back into the strange world of Shattered Glass. Before jumping back in, let’s take a look at some of the best Shattered Glass characters we’ve seen in toy form so far! Â
It’s a podcast for your eyes! We don’t often get a chance to do our shows in person, so when we do it’s nice to put together a little video. So here is the super elite behind the scenes recording of the Powetcast 118 “Put Your Doors On”, our live show from Botcon 2012. I’ve throw in some photos and clips I had handy when relevant.
I have been attending Transformers conventions for over a decade now. I not only own all of the convention exclusive sets offered over that time, I have experienced the convention and its prevailing atmosphere each year. I wanted to make a list of the five best Botcon exclusive sets, not just based on the toys, but on much more than that. Innovation. Character Selection. Overall theme. Fan Demand. I made this list with all of these things in mind to bring forth the most cohesive and synergistic sets to date. Have a look through each of my selections and let us know what you think in the comments.
The folks from Botcon have revealed the next figure in their exclusive set for this year’s convention in Dallas. The figure is Shattered Glass Treadshot. He uses the Reveal the Shield Jazz mold with colors that appear to be from Armada Sideswipe and a stripe that resembles the one from Universe Treadshot. Confused? I am. I’m happy to see the mold get used, just surprised to see it used in this way. As a point of reference, the G1 Treadshot was a Decepticon Action Master.
The location for Botcon 2012 has been announced and its going back to Texas. Next year’s Botcon will take place in Dallas from April 26 to 29th. The main hotel will be the Hyatt Regency Dallas. As quickly as we are getting this information to you, though, it sounds like Sunday is already selling out. Book your hotel quickly! We’ve got ours and we hope to see you there!
When I purchased Top Spin and Twin Twist in the dealer room on Friday, I also noted a bag filled with translucent and clear knock-offs of the Laserbeak and Rumble/Frenzy cassette molds. The bag was labeled five dollars each and contained seven different cassettes. Four Laserbeaks and three Rumbles. I took a mental note of the bag and decided if I was still thinking about it Saturday, I would go back and see if they were still there and sure enough they were. I decided to just pick up the whole bag since they were small and my purchasing has been limited so far.
