Weapon: Energon Crossbow
It looks as though its main component is hardened salt water taffy.

I have to say this is a very eye-scalding figure, but definitely one of the better ones.

What recent decision of Hasbro can't the above picture apply to?

Look at the bright side - at least it's not ANOTHER Optimus Prime toy.

I was going to say: Finally! A yellow transformer that ISN'T Bumblebee!

For what it's worth, people had been asking for a Scourge/Nemesis Prime repaint of that mold. Slipstream and Depth Charge were at least customized a few times out of the very same molds TFCC is using, so they too had a bit of the "fans choice" aspect to them.

There is also the fact that they (and other clubs/conventions) don't want redundancy with Hasbro's plans. Remember the Seekers? IIRC somebody tried to SUE Hasbro for releasing Thundercracker in Generations. That would leave out a lot of the more obvious choices.
I'm actually surprised Scourge, Slipstream, and Depth Charge were used; those molds looked designed with them in mind (if as eventual repaints) and they're rather popular characters.


A vote would be cool, especially if we make the choices as opposed to being handed a list, though there's going to be so many restrictions it might make it unfeasible.

I believe the same went for a G1 Breakdown version of the mold

Wait... really?! I gotta look this up.

M<ore on this, I suspect that we will be seeing more of a fans choice type of thing, since every botcon feedback form they get asks fans what figures they want to see; I'm sure that'll play into the TFSS.

Looking back myself, I don't recall correctly. The story I was referring to was an elaborate April Fools. My bad. HUGE discussion over at TFW at the time, though:

Yes, I know Scourge, Breakdown and Slipstream were rather popular... But then Jackpot and Circuit were kinda forced to me, even BBTS thinks so, with the lower price... I don't see the point in making "worse" toys in the same line when they could have picked better choices for repaints. Oh well. Ultra Mammoth though, I don't think many have been wanting a Magnus version of BC...but it was quite a hit when revealed. I still don't get the Magnus colours for it... :S

As for thundercracker, :lol: I don't think you can legitly do that, since Hasbro is not at fault. I don't think it was stated that hasbro would never release convention exclusive at regular retail... Like how Classics Ironhide and Ratchet kinda made the Botcon ones obsolete.
