Botcon have unveiled their third 2014 convention exclusive, which is sure to please a lot of fans. The third 2014 exclusive is from the “Knight” faction, and is the one and only Devcon, a retooled Generations Scourge with a new head.
This is the first time that the character Devcon will have appeared in toy form. The character was introduced in the 1985 cartoon episode “The Gambler” where he helped the Autobot Smokescreen recover the rest of the Autobots from an alien fighting arena. His brief appearance as an Autobot aligned bounty hunter has afforded him a sort of “Boba Fett” kind of mystique, and he’s been included on many lists of “obscure Transformers deserving toys”.
(Although we say this is the first time that Devcon will get a toy release, a Devcon from Energon Slugslinger was one of many exclusives planned by former license holders 3H for their 2005 convention, but their loss of the license meant this never materialized).
