The Powet Top 5 – Botcon Exclusive sets

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.

Botcon 2012 Exclusive Shattered Glass Treadshot revealed

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.

Botcon 2012 Exclusive Shattered Glass Soundwave revealed

Similar, to Shattered Glass Tracks, no real surprises here. We’ve seen Shattered Glass Soundwave on numerous occasions before and he’s always portrayed with this mold. He will not come with his yellow bandana, but it will be available for purchase separately from the club. Logistically speaking regarding the toy’s production, that makes a lot of sense. Speaking from a fan’s perspective, I can guarantee that move will cause a lot of frustration. In a stranger turn of events, the Cold Slither logo appears on Soundwave’s alt mode. Cold Slither is a GI Joe reference. In the old GI Joe show, the Drednoks masqueraded as a rock band called Cold Slither.

Testing out a new format. Let me know what you think. Also an 8th Joe figure was announced yesterday, Barrel Roll. This was a little rushed so I know its lacking in a few areas, but I like to experiment.
