Auction Site Taobao has posted some images of what appears to be a BotCon 2014 Exclusive: Flamewar! A repaint of the Beast Hunters Deluxe Arcee Figure this is a character who was first introduced at BotCon 2005 as a repaint of another Arcee.

To see Seibertron's exclusive gallery of the original Flamewar click here and to see Beast Hunters Arcee click here.

Even more unusually Taobao also has what appears to be Arcee repainted as Transmutate. Unlike the recent TFCC version (the gallery of which can be seen here) this version uses the Robots In Disguise version of Arcee rather than the First Edition. A test model or something else?

Don't forget that at this point there is no guarantee that these are the finished designs or that they are genuine BotCon exclusives.

Aw man, I was hoping all the souvenirs would be 3H toy homages only.

I guess we can now guess who the "rogue Decepticon" might be.

Great, I'll take... BOTH! Looks like I'm getting more fembots this year, even if they are based on the different molds of the same character ;)

Gosh dang it, I bought a Beast Hunters Arcee just to customize it into Flamewar, thinking there wouldn't be an official release.

Oh well, my only consolation is I have a chance to make it look better, and I suppose it'll be cheaper to have bought the thing and repainted it by hand than it would be to buy this aftermarket.

I WANT THAT FLAMEWAR RIGHT NOW!! :BOOM:

The Beast Hunters mold fits Flamewar to a T. Spikier and edgier than regular Arcee. Love it!!

Yeah, not convinced, we've seen pictures of other toys in Botcon bags this year that appeared to be legit but turned out to be a custom in a old bag.

There is no reason for the club to produce a second transmutate, it would cut into the sales of the first one.

The flamewar looks cool, but again, unlikely that they'd have two such similar molds, if the flamewar was made using the FE Arcee I'd be a lot more convinced.

I guess I'll just have to go to Botcon and find out for myself.

Something's odd, look at the polybags. Flamewar's says 2014 and the Transmutate's says 2013.

Flamewar looks decent enough.

So, BH Flamewar transforms from Batgirl's bike into...Yoko from Gurren Lagann???
ImageOr is there another iconic flame-bikini-top out there?

One thing we do know for sure: she ain't the free 12-and-under toy...

Now the new Transmutate is just all kinds of confusing. Could this be another case of a female TF being created via experimentation on a male character, but this time the gender switch was a side effect of curing Electro of gold-plastic-syndrome? Because when I picture her in opposition to FE-Arcee Transmutate, the smoother chest and wider wingspan just says Electro more than Transmutate. Go fig. Really curious to find out what the deal is here.

My guess is that it's something the Club were contemplating for BotCon last year but instead they used a different mold and made it the Club figure this year.

Flamewar makes a buttload of sense. Can't wait to see more of the other souvenirs.

Transmutate makes a buttload of "wat" and "why". I'd like to think that this was a concept that the Club was considering, but decided to ditch it.

Transmutate was always too weird a character IMO.

BUT Flamewar on the other hand: SO MANY TIMES YES!!! =P~

Flamewar does make a whole lot of sense. In fact, I'm guessing she'll be the Attendee Freebie figure like the BotCon 2005 one. Gotta stay consistent, you know? ;)

Now, Trans-Mutate is a whole different animal. Maybe either will be the Freebie, one as Flamewar herself, the other as a disguise? Either way, I want them.

That is, if everything is actually legit:

Don't forget that at this point there is no guarantee that these are the finished designs or that they are genuine BotCon exclusives.

It's true. Taobao is where we saw most of the 2010 BotCon figures early, but it's also where we saw that supposed Glyph from the Classics Bumblebee mold. So take everything there with a pinch of salt.

Man, i really love that Flamewar, but I've been really happy with the Legion figures of her and Arcee because they scale nicely with Deluxes. Not that EVERY bike should or has to, the Junkions come to mind as Cybertronan Motorcycles, but Flamewar and Arcee were cool, and can ride their rear wheel into battle.

Transformers Prime (mainline) Arcee as Flare-up and Flamewar
Transformers Prime Thundertron as Alpha Trion (based on the 3H Wreckers Alpha Trion)
Transformers Collectors Club Rampage / Prime First Edition Megatron as Shokaract
Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Optimus Prime as Apelinq
Transformers Prime Vehicon and Jet Vehicon as the Generation 1 Decepticon clones, Pounce and Wingspan

Pounce and Wingspan are definitely oddballs, one would think Fastlane and Cloudraker would have been better choices for these molds. Maybe Jhiaxus is offering his services?

Alpha Trion out of Thundertron would be a no-brainer, as would be Apelinq out of BW 10th Primal. Rampage as Shokaract... too soon?

The last time someone suggested Fastlane and Cloudraker from the Vehicon molds, it was pointed out that the Vehicon molds look too evil to work as Autobots, even with a new head.

Besides, the Vehicon molds make rather a spiffy Decepticon Clones pair - Click here

Except for the Cybertron toy already being "close enough" to Apelinq's deco, right down to the black and red surfboard.

It's happened before. And this could instead be "The Hunter".

I'd Use generations skywarp,Bring it round full circle because of the use of Beast machines Jetstorm (Ultra and deluxe) for Universe cyclonus and Universe Skywarp respectively.

I just want to note, Rampage also comes in a "Botcon 2013" marked polybag. So it's possible the RID Transmutate was from factory test shots but plans changed and FE Transmutate was made instead. Nice color, though. Very different from the color they chose, so would still like to see this made. Maybe as another character, maybe with an autobot symbol instead of the maximal, maybe as Chromia. I actually love both Prime Arcee molds, so I'd take them in any color.

Thats a scary thought, but I feel safe since transmutate comes with a maximal tampo and custom class figures are always tampoless. My guess is cybertron red alert since the custom figure is always a deluxe mold from the box set. What else could they possibly do cyclonus ? (SG already been done) And scourge ? Any decepticon use of the mold would be too similar to takara ratbat.

Not true The first years had the Customizing Figure be unrelated to either the boxset or the souvenirs:

2006: Rumble & Inferno from Cybertron Scrapmetal, not used in box set
2007: Overkill from Classics Grimlock, not used in box set
2008: SG Nightbeat from Club Nightbeat, released slightly before.

The rest all had some relation, be it as a direct repaint or base mold if it's a retool. Universe Cyclonus, Prime Ratchet and Generations Scourge are indeed contenders, but the Club is known for pulling rabbits out of their hats.

I could see Cyclonus repainted as this guy:

It's merely one of season 3's many infamous animation errors, taking any old character model (Cyclonus's in this case), giving it someone else's deco (Dirge's in this case), and using it as a generic.

Except for Rumble/Inferno, they've all been Deluxes. Voyagers are too big, not to mention ratchet joints (that both figures use) can be a pain to assemble.

Been away most of the weekend, but I've gotta jump in late here on this rumored souvenir list. If true, it's just not for me. It's cool for the handful of folks that have some deep nostalgia and appreciation for the early 00's 3H fiction, but I could personally care less about re-dos of old Botcon characters. I know, I know, they were bound to do something like that, but man, I just don't care.

And Pounce/Wingspan out of Vehicons? The Autobot clones called and they are ashamed of that choice.

Full disclosure that discredits me entirely: I'll buy one set of each regardless :oops:

Are you excited about the arrival of BotCon 2014? Guest Samantha Newark definitely is, particuarly about the new extra special guest Susan Blu! Check out the slew of information that the official BotCon site have about the voice of the first Transformers cartoon Arcee below.

Image


SUSAN BLU’s vast experience and well-respected expertise in Animation has established her as one of the most in-demand Voice Directors in the animation industry. She has directed over a thousand episodes of animated projects that include television series, theatrical releases, direct-to-video releases and video games that has earned her four Emmy nominations. Highlights from her most recent animated television projects include the high profile, and critically acclaimed series’ "How to Train your Dragon", " Ben Ten", and " Curious George", as well as " The Land Before Time", "Transformers" and the "Star Wars" series. In the feature realm, her latest credits include, "Stuart Little III", "Brer Rabbit" and " Clifford The Big Red Dog", as well as the direct-to-video release of "Superman: Strange Allies", and "Curious George". Highlights of her video game credits include "Surf’s Up" and "Open Season". After her voice directorial debut with "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (for which she directed over 145 episodes) Susan decided to open a voice-over workshop for actors. It quickly became highly regarded, enormously popular and always sold out. From this workshop evolved her book "Word Of Mouth, A Guide To Commercial And Animation Voice Over Excellence", co-authored with Molly Ann Mullin and Cynthia Songe, which is considered the Voice over Bible.

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Susan arrived in Los Angeles after a talent scout spotted her from Screen Gems Talent. From there her talents took off in many different directions. She landed the role of "The Pillsbury Dough Girl” and went on to voice hundreds of commercials. As an Animation Voice Actor she originated roles on several animated shows including such classics as "The Smurfs, (Gramma Smurf)", "Scooby Doo (Flim Flam)", "The Transformers, (Arcee)", and "Ghostbusters (Jessica/ Futura)". On stage her credits include theater tours with starring roles in "The Unsinkable Molly Brown", "The Desert Song" and "The Boyfriend". As a young singer she toured in Vietnam with George Jessell on the USO tour and took her One Woman Show to New York and Los Angeles. In front of the camera, she guest starred in episodes of "Three’s Company", "The Bob Newhart Show", and "Knight Rider" and on the big screen she thrilled audiences in the starring role of Mrs. Amanda Shepard, the mother of a telekinesis who unwittingly releases Jason Voorhees, in the cult classic "Friday The 13th Part 7".

Nope, she was announced at TFCon-Toronto's guest back in early April.

Looks like BotCon is scrounging for last minute guests by calling former guests. :lol:

Oh well, it got people talking. :P

And her attendance did just become more relevant, what with many of us getting that new FE Arcee-to-Transmutate for her to possibly sign, possibly followed by a PRID Arcee-to-Transmutate repaint for her to sign if that bagged test-shot pans out (unlikely as it is).

I'd be curious to know what she thinks of the irony of two official mass-produced Transmutate toys existing, while G1 Arcee still hasn't gotten a proper transforming toy.
