BotCon Pics

OK, next installment.
I know most of you guys have seen many variations of these pics, but I do have a few friends and family who will be interested in seeing these.  This shows some of the toys I saw (and want).  

 

Friday was the start of the con, proper. 
I believe that was the morning a group met at Ihop for breakfast and I was dared by naggingfishwife to drink the syrup. 
Then I had to pick up Liz at the airport. 
Had a quick lunch and then off to the Dealer Room.
Cool cut-out of OP as you walked in.

 

Right inside the door was a 'Con symbol on the rug.  Someone had a pic of the Autobot symbol, but I must have missed it.



Got in line for David Kaye's (TFA Optimus) autograph pretty early, I think it was around 1pm.  
I don't have a pic of him signing stuff, as they were starting to rush us through.
But, since they allowed us 2 items, I had him sign the DVD cover and the ax from my Roll Out Command figure. 

 

I feel like such a derp, but I was so excited to get my stuff signed, I just walked right past Ms. Collins. 
I forgot she was there.  Ah well.



Kre-o. 
Sooo cute.  The expressions on the faces of the tiny figures are pretty appropriate to their characters.  I think, anyway. 



Figure of OP - about 5 feet tall.



This mural of Prime's face was made entirely of the building blocks.  Pretty amazing.
I could have sworn I took a pic of the Megs one, but maybe it didn't come out. 



Another OP figure made of the blocks. 



Close-up of face.



And these are what I must have. 
These are about an inch and 3/4 tall, and are included in the corresponding large mech kit. 

 

Awww -


Who the slag is the blue guy?  Bluestreak?  I thought he was grey.



Prowl looks great. 



Ratchet and a tiny Spike.  You can see the size comparisons.

 

Starscream.



Megs and Mini Megs, with tiny Shocky.  (Stupid glass reflected the lights.)



Recognize these feets? 


Isn't TFP Starscream awesome?  I think they are hitting stores in October.



Here's a blurry Arcee, but she looks fantastic. 

 

Space Case.  I really like him.



Crankcase.  Look at that face!  He reminds me of a bat.  I did buy him, only because I saw him unfolded here. 



Rodimus.  I forget when he's coming out. 

 

Enough for tonight.  I figure 2 or 3 more posts, then I'm done.

Good, then I'll gank a copy of yours!
It takes time to organize and crop pics. I figured I'd be done posting by now.

Blue guy would be Smokescreen. :D so DO want.

I'm also so very amused the doorwings are a lot bigger than a Seeker's XB

I want the whole set of those tiny Kre-O figures, plus an extra Hound and Mirage to make earrings out of...

Yes....

I wonder if I could resell the sets once I buy them - minus the minis?

I really want a Crankcase fig. I'm afraid I'll get the one with clipped fingers tho. How did yours turn out?

I haven't taken him out of the package yet. I will, but I just got my swag delivered Monday and haven't unpacked everything yet.
I want to go buy a few of him, just to see if they are mutated. haha.

I just posted another pic of the minis for you.
Let me know if that works for you.
