If you want these, buy the Rise of Tyranny 2-pack from Amazon, and the Humble Origins 2-pack from Pulse (if it comes back in stock). The thing is, with Rise of Tyranny you're getting two voyagers for $70 on Pulse (reasonable) and with Humble Origins you're getting a deluxe and a voyager for $55 on Pulse (also reasonable). But Amazon got the prices swapped, so you're getting two voyagers for $55 on Amazon (an amazing deal) and a deluxe and a voyager for $70 on Amazon (a ripoff).
TL;DR buy Megs & Ratbat from Amazon and Shockwave & Orion from Pulse.
Big news today, as BotCon has shared ticket info as well as our first look at the BotCon 2023 convention exclusive box set. Tickets are available here:
And for those of you wondering about the box set, it is still a set of four BeastBox toys produced by company 52Toys. Image below.
Still no info on tickets, but BotCon has posted an update about a very special guest. The one and only Scott McNeil will be attending BotCon this year! View the tweet below for more info:
It's a 3D printed design by Hightail Creations. I love how creative this is, and he says files will be uploaded tomorrow. For more information, see his YouTube video below:
BotCon has posted two new updates on their socials related to the upcoming 2023 event. First, when asked about ticket pricing, they replied saying it will be available in April. Additionally, they said the convention box set will be revealed next month, along with a possible sneak peek at the box art?
I'm not really sure how everyone missed this. I couldn't find anything about it on any other big news websites, and it was posted on BotCon's website two days ago! The convention will be held at American Dream in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Anyways, here is the post with all the details and hotel registration links:Quote

THOSE MANIACS DID IT
THEY MADE PINK HOT ROD
I was thinking that Scraphook might be a constructicon. Hasbro could go the route of third-party companies like Magic Square and Newage and release the constructicons in the form of three two-packs. "Scraphook" could be a way of saying "Scrapper and Hook." Also, a two-pack might be the reason for it being the only listing without a size class.
