What do you think Guys you agree or Disagree?
Damn I give anything for this Botcon Set I Love Animated :c
I don't think they'll use Blurr for Drag Strip. Remember they've already used that mold for Cheetor. Not only are they both yellow, but FunPub really doesn't like reusing the same mold.

Okay, I was all behind the Animated theme, but unless they've retooled these figures so they actually form Menasor (and yes, I know what the odds are...), I'm officially disappointed. I can understand the fallout from that seeker set making them wary of doing a bunch of characters from the show that would complete a set started at general retail. Hasbro may have even mandated they focus on something neat but unique enough that fans could take it or leave it, as there was still that listing for Animated Thundercracker and Mudbuster Bulkhead on their site a few months back (or has that been stated to be totally meaningless?). However, considering how many posters yesterday were saying they wouldn't want any sort of Animated set, in this case I'm not sure demand would've outpaced supply more than for any other Botcon set. Isn't Animated just sort of a niche TF interest now?
Regardless, I still have high hopes for this set. And if all else fails...there's still a good chance that company doing TFA knock-offs will come through for us with repainted voyager Thundercracker and Ramjet, and maybe a Slipstream made from an enlarged Activator or Legends mold.
There, I said it, and until we get word of some official Starscream clones, I feel no shame about endorsing KOs of characters that HasTak and FunPub have not stated interest in producing.

T-Macksimus wrote:"Give Me Fuel, Give Me Fire, Give Me That Which I Desire" Hell YEAH!!! Any set that uses Metallica song lyrics for a motto, I'm all for it! When it was just that first pic I was looking at I was thinking "Meh...might not suck" but to scroll down and see the whole thing and read that motto...they most certainly have my attention. The concept excites me and the drawings look great so I'm really hoping they can pull off the final execution of this and have the actual figures combine well and not look horribly out of proportion. I'm more excited about this set than any of the DotM toys even though I won't have a chance of ever laying my hands on this thing.

I'm thinking Wreck-Gar or E-Ironhide for Motormaster
E-Prowl for Dragstrip
E-Downshift for Wildrider
C-Override for Deadend
A-Sideswipe for Breakdown
Other exclusives mayhaps:
C-Hardtop for Beachcomber
C-Shortround for Seaspray
TFA Swindle for Brawn
C-Unicron for Bludgeon
E-Inferno for Hotspot
TFA Prowl for Groove
TFA BB for Streetwise
U-Ironhide for First Aid
and just throwing this out there...
TFA Thundercracker as Thundercracker
