Blog #362: Toy Review: Cybcon 2009 Exclusive “Bitter Black” Dairycon 2009 Automated Security Sentry 09 (A.S.S.-09)


Cybcon 2009 Exclusive “Bitter Black” Dairycon 2009 Automated Security Sentry 09 (A.S.S.-09)


Two weeks ago I took a trip to Wisconsin to attend Dairycon 2013.  Sometime soon, I’ll be posting a full review of all the various Dairycon 2013 exclusive toys and merchandise.  While at the show, I managed to pick up one past Dairycon exclusive that I had been looking for, the Cybcon 2009 exclusive Dairycon “Bitter Black” Automated Security Sentry 09, AKA ASS-09, the Donkey of the Apocalypse.  (No, I’m not kidding, really.)  Unlike the other five versions of this toy, the Bitter Black version is painted with a metallic finish.  Repainted from a Transformers Beast Machines Basic Battle Unicorn, he sports a black pipe cleaner mane.

There were a total of six different versions of ASS-09.  Raging Red, Maniacal Maroon, Passionate Purple, Depressing Blue, Envious Green, and Bitter Black.  One was the 2009 Dairycon exclusive, one was an Autocon group exclusive, and the other four were exclusive to various other conventions.  Boxes are identical for all versions accept for a sticker on the front bubble.  I now have four of the six version, Raging Red, Depressing Blue, Envious Green, and the newest edition, Bitter Black.  Still searching for Passionate Purple and Maniacal Maroon.

I’m not sure what the production run was of each version of ASS-09 but from what I gather, some of them are extremely rare.

You can read ASS-09’s bio here and keep an eye on for pre-registration information for Dairycon 2014.

Thanks for reading!
