You're right, Ninjas are way better! :DANCE:

And the Customizing Class figure... What if it's that Trans-Mutate? :shock:

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.

I'm half hoping the Customizing Class figure is not Red Alert, simply because I want to see Red Alert in next year's TFSS.

There were plenty of Strika clones on ebay last year. Even the club store had them for a while. Dont jinx it for me ;)

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:



...just to give us a laugh. :lol:

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.

Besides, Dirge (along with Thrust and Ramjet) was supposedly killed in the movie, chomped by Unicron. I say supposedly :-B

It's always a deluxe class figure for the custom? If they decide to use the Classics Prime mold or the snowball's-chance-in-hell Scorponok mold who would they customize the figure into?

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.



[quote]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".[/quote]

I always wanted to meet her. This is a bit of a bummer since I can't go this year.
