I've been looking forward to this to add to the Botcon Beast Wars lineup. I thought that one year's set was really solid all around. Seemed like there weren't any duds.
I think they've finally found a stride with the club toys. I think starting off with a five-year exclusive of all-original characters was hard to swallow (Heatwave and crew)... but my excitement picked up with Nightbeat, Punch, Dion, SG characters, Ramjet, and the twins. SideBurn looked really nice, too. Seems like they've really dipped into the lore and chosen some great characters with solid comic book development... fan support... or like Dion, obscure BUT important in the scheme of history.
So bottom line, I think they're picking good additions now - characters that enhance existing sets or lines, which is smart. I hope they can also work in an occasional, clever original character occasionally, still. (Perhaps as a Botcon add-on or such.) Those would need to be really solid, and look very nice though.
I kinda think of Treadshot from Botcon last year like this. Just a great looking, out of left field toy... or Slipstream. (though not completely original, at least the first figure for that character.)
