Not bad... too much yellow, but that's the first Botcon figure that could work. I wonder if they remolded the face...

*everyone gasps* Diem, I'm surprised you didn't notice it's this:

:PRED:

This probably ties in with the end of Dawn of Future's Past comic of BotCon 2006. Here, the G1 Predacon subgroup is hinted at of being the founders of the Predacon faction.

Speaking of which, will it be a repaint of Leobreaker, Leo Prime or will it have a new head alltogether?

Congratulations to Counterpunch who saw this coming from a million miles away when we first learnt that Leo Prime wouldn't have his electrics.

Rumor: Next Botcon 09 Figure to be Razorclaw repaint

Postby First Gen » Sun Apr 12, 2009 9:24 am

Weapon: Double-Barreled Crystalizer Cannon
Unconfirmed reports are coming in of the next figure for the Botcon 2009 Wings of Honor set. This figure would, of course, be a bagged souvenir addition.

Pictures of the figure were found on TaoBao.com by Destro of TFW2005.com. The figure appears to be a repaint of Universe Leo Prime is in the color schemes of the Predacon Razorclaw. Could that be what the figure is?

Image

More details on the figure as they become available.

Now if they would just supersize ALL of the Legends Class Team Leader repaints from the exclusive 5 pack we would really have a cool set to collect.
It's cool that they did this but I can't say as I didn't see something like this coming. This is Leo's what, 5th paint job now?
They should have done this 2 years ago.
It's still neat to see that finally got around to it even if it is only an exclusive that darn few of us can get.

Nice paint scheme, but really an overused design... Still doesn't up my interest in the set much, but a nice addition for those who're going.

Wow. This'll be the first time that they reference a previous Botcon convention set with this fig.

Finally an excuse to get this mold.

Hasbro's not dumb (Not saying you implied or said that though), they're almost without a doubt gonna use the leo prime mold, because Razorclaw has a similar faceplate to prime, and that head mold is already pretty close to looking like his.

Da, I know I recognize that symbol from somewhere...

... It's not at Reprolabels...

... Maybe HMW before one of the board wipes when we were kicking around alternative faction symbols?

For some reason the name "Neopred" leaps to mind.

Edit:

I found it:

Actually Leo prime is a repaint of Cybertron Leo Breaker so who ever put the tag up on the news header is mistaken. Its a repaint of a Cybertron figure like most of the rest of this botcon set.

Misleading a bit no?

I wouldn't be so sure. Souvenir figures are also eligible for new heads (like Shattered Glass Megatron and Blurr) and we have yet to see one with a new head. Maybe this is one.

I thought Blurr used the head from Cybertron's retool of Armada Blurr?

Anyway, I don't see Razorclaw's head being different enough from Prime's to warrant a change.

Nope, the heads are different: Cyb Blurr's is rounded, while Shattered Glass' is more blockish:

You know that feeling you get when you have that brief flash of insight/enlightenment? I just realized why we get compared to Trekkies so much. :P

Seriously though, without the head shot how can you categorize whether it is a straight repaint (which should be like the 3rd or 4th) or a remold (which would make this the 2nd, right?) if you count only a different head sculpt as a remold. I think we need to see more pics. of thing.
Ewww, just had a bad thought. Savage Claw mode with THAT color scheme.
Not even the black on the CD Leader Class Op helped with that visual.
