This is awesome! I'm predicting Voyager Prime for Motormaster and Rodimus for Wildrider. I'm sure Blurr will be used too.

Very interesting.

It may be a neat idea for me to keep them, but that would violate my anti-animated policies.

Most likely this'll be the first set I sell off to recoup costs.

I'm still going to go though, I love Botcon despite the figures.

I'd actually squeal with joy if they used Magnus. I hope they don't use Wreck Gar.

Hmmm... I suspect they'll use Voyager Prime, Jazz, Blurr, Lockdown, and Rodimus for the molds... I'm already excited whatever they decide!

Motormaster: Voyager Prime Mold

Drag Strip: Blurr Mold

Dead End: Jazz Mold

Wildrider: Rodimus Mold

Breakdown: Bumblebee Mold or Lockdown Mold

Sigh. 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.

I dare to ask if these guys will actually combine. If not- I'm sure that they will look good, but to me it defeats the purpose of what they truly are- Combiners. So I doubt I will shell out the cash (in which I'm sure they will be expensive in the secondary. I won't be able to make it to Pasadena) For them..... But if they do (wishful thinking, of course) I may sell someone's soul to get them......

What a strange choice for a repaint, Jazz --> Dead End. Although the head kinda works.... well, I don't know about that mustache. Strange stuff.


I highly doubt they'll combine, much less beyond the "cars slapped onto MotorMaster's limbs" approach.

I think my buddy Randy Jackson wants to comment on this;

Randy Jackson wrote:Alright y'all, that mustache of yours? Tight, dawg! Congrats, you're getting a yes from me, which means you're going to Hollywood!


Well said Randy, well said. :lol: If only Simon were here to give us even more entertainment...

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.

I believe that Wreck Gar will be Motormaster. Truck alt mode and a blocky head

other limbs are Meh.

Lockdown, Rodimus, not that many cars to choose from.

Might need this!
