So if rumors around the geek TFandom are true we may be getting a Cybertron retooled figure as Alpha Trion.

There's been a few customs and kitbashes of this but if this is true, I'm actually more excited about this being a possible figure than any endlessly repainted Starscreams.

I didn't expect this figure at all so it could be a really nice surprise.

The con itself isn't proving to be much at all for me but some of the non-set figures could very well be great.

I think it is kind of silly that they have to do a repaint of Roots though. Yeah, I'm sure the figure is on the same tool/mold but does it have to be made too?

I can say for certain, since Kabaya released just a bunch of Roots, that a separate mold for him must exist or the ability to avoid filling the Vector Prime parts of the tool.

I suppose the sword is necessary to compelte the alt mode. I guess the same logic could be supplied for Roots too.

I wonder what fiction that'll create for him. Beta?

All in all, this one's got me more excited than any of the others so far.

Yeah, without Roots there'd be a recessed mini-con port unoccupied on his nose in vehicle mode. It'd look wrong.

I gotta have it,heh i just noticed his planet key is the key to vector sigma. that's even more awesome.

Wtf? i only posted the "heh, i just noticed" thing once.

and i din't friggin post the "must have must have must have" at all.

Cool, I didn't see this coming at all either! You're right though, we'll end up with some lame fiction to explain the appearance of Roots.

"Alpha Trion returns to battle the most powerful incarnation of Megatron yet; accompanied by Jim, a Mini-Con from the future that he met at a sweat lodge annual dinner."

Sorry, if nobody has guessed yet, I'm still astounded by the Arcee / Black Widow bollocks. To think that anybody could actually blow Wheelie up and get it wrong astounds me to this day.

Hoping that it's a club exclusive, rather than just for BotCon attendees....

Took another look,sorry guys,but it doesn't look like botcon quality,they only painted half the planet key,his head is sculpted well,but not botcon quality. perhaps an exclusive for something else.

I dunno, he does look a bit rough around the edges but it could be that what we are seeing is a hand-painted test-shot. Maybe it's for Botcon, maybe not, but it would fit with the theme awfully well...

True,if botcon really gets these,i will do my very best to aquire one here in hellhole-holland.

Hahaha, Holland? Freakin' A. Love you guys. :)

Apologies for my ignorance, since I don't really follow the TF fiction, who the heck is this guy? And what is everyone so excited about him?

Alpha Trion was the guy what rebuilt Orion Pax into Optimus Prime. Sorta like Papa Smurf, only he's a transformer. See the Key to Vector Sigma parts one and two, and War Dawn from G1 season two.

Making a figure out of him now is such a fanwank it ain't funny. At least it looks good.

Well, wasn't Vector Prime meant to be A3 to begin with? 'Cept they couldn't secure his name or some such.
