Convention News: Fifth Botcon 2016 exclusive revealed

The Official Botcon web site has been updated with the fifth Botcon 2016 exclusive reveal! This time out it's the third member of the Tripredacus Council Sea Clamp! This figure is a redeco and retool of the upcoming Scattershot mold. I'm guessing there will be a new Combiner head as well based on Tripredacus (at least I hope so!).
