If you've been tinkering with your budget with the recently revealed 2011 Transformers toys, you'll be tinkering some more. The Official Transformers Collectors' Club has updated their website with previews for their 2011 Member Exclusive Toys. These three were announced at BotCon 2010. The free membership figure will be Side Burn, a homage to the RID character of the same name. He will also be a part of the "Wings of Honor" Elite Guard, and uses Classics Rodimus as a base. Next up is Transtech Cheetor, who will be a remold/redeco of the toy he inspired, Animated Blurr. Toping of 2011 is Generation 2 Ramjet, who continues the 2010 BotCon set and uses Classics Ramjet as a base. Check out the very small teasers below!

I will finally have a reason to join! Side Burn and G2 Ramjet are two I just can't pass on. I don't care much about Blurr or Cheetor.

O...another rodimus to sell out and get resold on ebay for the protector upgrade, can't help but think that the guys on the last podcast had it right that FP comes out with a new set and hasbro jumps on the bandwagon with the corresponding figure(twice now) to bank off of it.

but hey, if that means they'll leave FP alone then by all means jump! :grin:

more g2 is cool for those who're interested I suppose. If the Sideswipe mold is still usable then it'd be cool to see his g2 redeco.

transtech as well! gotta say it's a bit weird having an animated line figure in a line mixing with other styles, but it'll be interesting to see him.

i don't think sideburn interests me too much though.

I'd love for the same thing, but I'm sure that would snubb the people who paid for G2 Sideswipe in the Customization class this year.

maybe not-hasbro released a Classics Overkill after he was the subject of a customizing class. True, those four toys had an oddness about them, but it still happened.

Yeah, I'd have phrased that more like, I care about Side Burn (enough to call him Speedbreaker), G2 Ramjet (though I'd care more if his color scheme was given to the Classics Starscream mold to give us Classics Slipstream; most collectors who had original Ramjet and bought the G2 one pointed the nosecone back and pretended it was a FemCon jet, right?) Blur and Cheetor, but not Transtech. In fact, I care enough about not splintering the fan base to see that leaving Beast Machines a dead end that Beast Wars fans can either accept or lop off of that continuity is the only way to keep everyone who was in the fan base from '96 to '01 happy. So whenever some club-exclusive story continues past Endgame for Universe or Transtech, I get nervous about old wounds opening up. Well, this Cheetor could still make a better Pre-Beast Axalon Cheetor than the Botcon Clocker remold for those who'll never accept BM's story, so I'll probably end up getting it too.

And a Speedbreaker that I don't have to worry about Speed-breaking whenever I transform him will be nice too.

As for Classics G2 Sideswipe...think those of us who can't get the custom class one may see a remold that actually pulls off the spiked shoulder pad look from the comics?

Sideburn sounds cool, bit of RID loving never goes amiss (Although Botcon Sky-Byte pales in comparison to the original imho) and it's about time I bought that mould.

Ramjet is kinda fun (and for the people who want a classics Slipstream, why can't she be a conehead?) but why no Action Master Thundercracker instead?

Transtech Cheetor could be ace, the second great custom idea picked up by the club and made available to those of us without the DIY skills/motivation. Let's just hope it works out better than Punch/Counterpunch...

Fun Pub picked a really good time to drop the ball. I only got a club membership this year more or less just for Counterpunch, and apart from that disaster in and of itself it just seems like their exclusives are just dropping into the realm of underwhelming. A redeco of Rodimus as Side Burn, while I get where they're going with that, I don't think the vehicle mode suits him as much, plus that mold doesn't excite me enough to get 2 of. G2 Ramjet was one I was pretty much expecting at some point, but like the Botcon exclusives it just doesn't hit QUITE the right note with me despite being a bit of a G2 fan. Transtech Cheetor is actually a pretty funny one, since elements of TT Cheetor's unused design were incorporated into animated Blurr. So now we've come full circle, but again it's not something I give a damn enough about to bother with, especially since it's a standalone. Sure it works as a standalone figure, but that's just not something I do.

Bottom line: Fun Publications fails to impress, and as such is loosing my following.

Why can't Slipstream be a conehead? Well, she wasn't a conehead in Animated or WFC, and when you're trying to interpret a mold originally of a male character as being simply repainted into a female one, certain details can get in the way. Classics Ramjet's face is more distinctly male than Starscream's...and the single head-cone is symbolically phallic, creating a psychological barrier to any femininity.

Though if you extended it out to look like a medieval princess/sorceress's headpiece...say, Mega wore one of those in Masterforce, right? And Slipstream's based on Overlord's color scheme! Nah, it still doesn't work...

But I wasn't seriously complaining; Hasbro will milk any one mold for as many repaints as possible right? We'll see Classics Slipstream someday, maybe even before Animated Slipstream (sigh).

I'm thankful to say that with Generations Jazz, Grapple, Tracks, Scourge and Wreck-Gar, not to mention Masterpeice Rodimus already on my list for 2011 (plus the Dinobot if the rumour is true) already having to be budgeted for, that I am not interested in any of these 3 club figures after this years kick ass choice of P/CP, Dion (I really liked that figure) and SG Cyclonus, it seems that next year won't be as good. I'm sure some of you disagree but for me these are all a pass. =;

I'm glad he's the free membership figure. May also get Cheetor, not sure on G2 Ramjet.

I'll be joining just to get that G2 Ramjet. He was one of my favorites as a kid, especially out of the few G2 toys I had. I *really* wish he and G2 Sideswipe had been part of the box set or two packs at Botcon.

How soon can we join in order to qualify for the free membership figure?

I don't really see the point of the silhouettes, they already told us what figures they will be repainting. Just to generated a little buzz I suppose. At any rate I'll most likely end up with all three. I'm a member so Sideburn is taken care of, and I like the other two enough to order them. Transtech Cheetor has potential.

The latest is March 16, 2011.

On a personal note, I'll definitely get Animated Cheetor.. while I'm wondering if Side Burn would make a decent replacement for Wildrider/SG Rodi in that Shadow Scyther armor..

I haven't fully looked into joining yet, so let's see if I understand this correctly.
If I join right now, my membership would be from October 2010 to October 2011, I would not get Dion, but I would get Side Burn, I would have the option to buy Ramjet and Cheetor, and I would get the discount rate for Botcon 2011....does that sound right?

Interior by Kraven The Hunter?

(Yes, I'm a comics geek too, it doesn't make me a bad person)

On topic, Ramjet is a must, not fussed about Animated and will reserve judgement on the Sideburn until I see a picture.

I just let my subscription run out too...

I've wanted to see Transtech toys for so long, and Cheetor is a personal favorite, so I guess I'll have to re-up. That's the only one I really am interested in, but I like the idea of that one A LOT.

Someone mentioned above that there was a custom of this figure? Can anyone provide a link?
Thanks

One is included with membership price if joined before March 16(in this case Side Burn). The other two will be able to be purchased(and pre-ordered) from the Club Store online. Membership also includes 6 Club Mags a year and a discount on Botcon.

Well, looks like I might need to join the club again. They're basically making a toy of one of my fancharacters with that Blue Hot Rod. Hes just need a different head (the one I designed, of course) and to be a Micromaster, lol. plus, Speedbreaker i9s pretty awesome :)

I didn't get the G2 BotCon set, and I'm kind of burnt out on Seekers now, but G2 Ramjet might be interesting...

Now, if they would make ANOTHER run of Punch/Counterpunch then I would be a very happy man.... I was hit HARD by being effing broke this whole past year and had to let my membership lapse and it makes me so damned sad that I missed PCP (He's a drug, I tell you)

Posted by JelZe GoldRabbit on September 29th, 2010 @ 9:09am CDT
Edit is your friend ;)

"Slipstream" originated in Animated as the Female Starscream clone. What personality trait she represents is best left not asked, as that's the gag. Her name first appeared in the AllSpark Almanac. It's worth noting that BWII Starscream (a completely different character) was a bit feminine... Yikes.

For those curious, the rest of the clones represent:

Thundercracker: Egomaniac
Skywarp: Coward
Ramjet: Liar
Sunstorm: Suck Up

Thrust: Jealous (Animation only)
Dirge: Greed (Toy only)
