Transformers News: BotCon 2014 - David Kaye Announced as Special Guest


David’s biggest moment was when he was cast as Predacon Commander Megatron in 1996, in the hugely popular series Beast Wars ("Beasties" in Canada) that would go on to run for three seasons of "the most fun you could ever have!" says David. Thus began an almost twenty year relationship with the "Transformers" franchise, from his role as the Decepticon Megatron from the Armada series, crossing over in 2007 to voice the Heroic Autobot Optimus Prime in "Transformers: Animated", thus becoming the only actor in the history of the franchise to play the lead villain AND the lead hero, to his most recent role as the Insection Hardshell in the award winning series "Transformers: Prime."

David Kaye is awesome, I love his annual Christmas greetings on Youtube, and he voiced the second greatest Megatron in Trasformers history. Sorta disappointed I'll not be at BotCon to say hi...

slight issue, though...
The ONLY actor to have voiced BOTH Optimus Prime and Megatron

If one wants to get technical, as I do so enjoy doing from time to time, he's not the only, nor even the first, as Garry Chalk voiced G1 Megatron's message recorded on the golden disc back in Beast Wars, and voiced several iterations of Optimus (both Primal and Prime)

There's always that one figure out of the whole Botcon lot that strikes a cord.

Strika was it last year, now this....

Well still not better looking than Senator Ratbat and he was much cheaper! #Silverlining

As the original creator of Devcon... I think I deserve one of these. Gratis!

The official BotCon Twitter feed has just released a teaser for another organic character to be featured in this year's Pirates vs. Knights story line. You'll remember they previously teased a character named Squirm. This humanoid organic is called Olin, and according to another of their tweets is very important to the story. Check out the teaser image mirrored below:

This may be our most important reveal to date for 2014... This is a question everyone who is attending BotCon should be asking.


Who is Olin?

Unless one of their lead characters is a Head Master or Power Master, I foresee a great deal of nerd-rage in the immediate future. Since they couldn't possibly construct a Pretender shell to do justice to this sketch I can't see how they could add a humanoid to this line-up without raising the ire of every single Transformer fan out there looking to collect this set.

Personally, I think the "Knights vs Pirates" theme is about the lamest possible idea they could have come up with for a BotCon set. That's just my own opinion and we all know that I have a low opinion of just about everything these days so this comes as no surprise to anyone. I'm an ass so what do you expect?

Many of you like the idea and that's cool. Whatever floats your boat.
I'm just saying that unless it's a GI JOE crossover or a nod to a G1 Nebulan or Spike, adding a "fleshling" to the line-up, especially a new one, is a recipe for disaster. The fans on here are death towards anything organic being introduced into the world of "Giant f'ing robots!"

Yeah, while I do like pirates ... (I think it's ripe for some rich story telling and character development — which is what convention sets are all about.) ... I'm really skeptical about human figures. Headmaster (and/or Target/Powermaster) seems like the best case scenario.

On the notion of a GIJoe crossover... I don't think they need to TOUCH that unless it's done 100%. FULL set ... preferably an on-the-shelf line. Joe Autobot vehicles and Cobra Decep vehicles with human figures that fit inside. I wouldn't mind smaller humans (like MASK) to maintain a decent scale. Major characters for each faction matched up with bots and joes.

If there's anything BAPE Prime showed me, it's the fact that a realistically painted camo/navy colored army series of Transformers would be awesome. I'd buy the crap out of that.

But i Digress. (a lot)

My point is — I really don't want a TINY nod to GI Joe.

Who is Olin?
Who the **** cares :P?

Seriously though, if there's a reason everyone should be interested in this character, I don't see it yet. I'm sure he's central to the plot somehow, but I think most of us are more interested in seeing the rest of the bot reveals at this point (or at any point, really).

Okay, are people seriously thinking that these organics are gonna get toys of them made? Come on! That's ridiculous.

We know that the box set consists of three pirates and two knights. Two of those pirate toys and one of those knight toys have all already been revealed to be Cannonball, Ferak w/ Tornado, and Devcon, leaving only two empty spots remaining.

And of the in-story organics that have been revealed thus far are Squirm, Cannonball's navigator, and now this Olin guy. That's three organics right there, which is one too many to be in the remaining boxed set slots.

And we know that the Club doesn't make a habit of revealing anything to be included in the convention souvenir sets prior to the con, so these probably aren't going to be souvenir toys either.

What's more is that all three of these guys are completely original designs based on no existing toys, meaning that they are likely planned without having any toys in mind for them, since Fun Pub can't produce all new molds on their own.

So quit worrying or start hating every single non-toy organic character we've gotten for the past 30 years, since it's only fair that they receive the same unjust disdain that these guys are getting. >:oP

The question that remains is, in addition to his identity, who's side is he on?

Is he with the pirates or the knights? Or neither? :-?

HOLY SNAP!!! - https://twitter.com/BotCon

We are not joking...
We are not fooling...
We promise you Olin will be the most talked about character for Transformers fans VERY soon...
We should have been more clear about the third flesh creature...
We will be revealing our 4th figure from the Box set soon. But for now, we really did not give you enough info about... The Nebulan
For his name is Olin, son of Zarak, and rightful heir to the Hive creation known as… Scorponok!
For anyone who was wondering if the 2014 BotCon Box set would be celebrating the 30th anniversary, rest assured, it will... in a BIG way.


I think we can all now guess what the Energon mold is, and what it is that the Club has never done before.

HEAD ON!

Soooo Energon Scorponok as Black Zarak? Okay, granted i'd still rather an actual preview picture of the toy rather than concept art of the nebulan.

I think it's too early to jump to the conclusion of Energon Scorponok being used. Besides, we already have a Black Zarak-based repaint of him:

I don't see how Scorponok as is differs from the original's deco, other than a lack of purple. And I don't imagine them retooling the head to a point that this could become a Headmaster. Unless that's the big thing they're teasing us with.

thats my assumption...
and energon scorpys colors differ a lot from G1. two different greens, neither matching G1. blue and yellow not seen on G1. total lack of purple, and overpowering orange.

id welcome an energon scorpy all G1'd up, headmaster or not.

And that would cover the potential "ship". And it would certainly be something FunPub has never done before: use a size larger than Ultra.

The official BotCon Twitter account has been busy hinting at the identity of their next Pirates vs. Knights figure. According to their tweets the next reveal will be a big one that celebrates the 30th anniversary and may have a Nebulan partner. This Nebulan would appear to be the previously teased Olin......son of Zarak! Their teaser tweets and a new color image of Olin can be found below.

If it was in any of Tornado's transmissions/Google documents, I'm kinda unable to open them at the moment (partly because my computer went kaput, forcing me to use my iPod for any and all internet access).

If he does transform could head master from scorponok, or minicon, if they decide to give him human body be kicker it woild be nice if he is headmaster I buy new upgrade head for scorponok if he looks good in head/bot mode,.

:lol: maybe its combination of both kicker that transforms into head master, that wouldnt to be bad if its made properly to fit onto big headmasters im little excited to see finished product find out if they go with headmaster route hate to see it if its kicker body with bot head on his back that doesnt transform into headmaster that will look terrible bring this concept to life :michaelbay:

Okay, let me break it down for ya.

* Olin is Zarak's son.
* Zarak was the Headmaster of Scorponok
* This is 30 years after the G1 cartoon
* Fun Pub is using an Energon mold this year
* Fun Pub will be doing something they've never done before
* The last page is full of posts talking about this

We could be getting a new version of G1 Scorponok made from Energon Scorponok with a full-fledged transforming Headmaster head as Olin. :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:
