Earlier today, the Transformers Collectors' Club tweeted several images from the fifty-fifth issue of the Club Magazine, featuring alternate Beast Wars-era characters in new bodies. As many of you will recognize, they all use toy designs lifted from Beast Hunters, Universe (2008), Generations, and Prime.

Transformers News: TFCC Tweets "Alternate Beast Wars Characters": Possible Exclusives?

The characters featured are as follow:

* Rattrap from Prime Rumble
* Botanica from Beast Hunters Soundwave
* Jawbreaker from Beast Hunters Ratchet
* Geckobot from Beast Hunters Wheeljack
* Torca from Universe (2008) Onslaught
* Dynobot (Beast Wars Dinobot) from Generations Springer

Also featured is Transmutate, who will appear alongside Protoform X/Rampage as a TFCC exclusive this year.

But wait, there's more! The Club also made a couple of interesting tweets. The first one states that they used these designs in case they wanted to make toys out of them, and the second says that if the positive feedback keeps coming, then some might even make it to toy-hood in the near future (perhaps as future TFSS exclusives?).

We did use existing molds just on the chance of "maybe"...

So. If we do see some serious demand for these guys, maybe one or two (or more) will show up next year. #geckobot #really #youallsure ???


Will these characters end up as toys? If so, will Botanica finally get her own toy fifteen years after her debut in Beast Machines? Speculate away in the Energon Pub!

So I'm kind of new to this Botcon, is there a way to preorder tickets or is it all purchased at the booth entrance?

A brochure will be released soon detailing all the information you'll need. Based on previous BotCons (since '05) there will be several packages which you can order in advance. These packages are the only way to guarantee getting the toys:

Primus Package contains the boxset, the Freebie upon entering the Con, and several perks including early entry into the Dealer Room and special Exhibits.
Mini-Con Package is an add-on to the Primus one for additional guests in your party. no extra toys tho.
Protoform Package is a scaled down Primus package, without the toys basically.
Iacon Package is the non-Attendee's choice, includes the toys, but not the bonus freebie.

General Admission is Saturday and Sunday only, and I wouldn't advise winging it, lines can be really long.

Any idea when "soon" is? They seem to be running late this year.
Maybe I'm just paranoid...

And other pages are up as well, including the Exclusives. Seems the box set will have 3 Pirates and 2 Knights.

So then the souvenirs and attendee figure must consist of the remaining 2 pirates, the remaining 3 knights, and the rogue Decepticon (not necessarily in that order, though).

The official BotCon 2014 website has revealed the faction breakdown in this year's Pirates vs. Knights boxset. The set will feature three pirates and two knights, so far know the identity of one of the pirates, their captain Cannonball. The convention attendee only add-on sets will of course add to both of their ranks. BotCon takes place June 19th - 22nd in Pasadena, CA.

Even money the rogue Decepticon will be the attendee freebie.

Then we'll see one voyager knight vs one deluxe pirate, and one deluxe pirate vs one deluxe knight, and then an army builder pack of pirates.

There's a 3-2 ratio in favor of the Star Seekers in this set.

The awesomeness speaks for itself.

Though, the overall ratio in the whole of the exclusives will still be an even 5:5.

Aren't there Star Seeker army builders? I think they should outnumber the knights effectively. Unless there are knight army builders I missed.

True. Maybe the "5 pirates vs. 5 knights" thing counted the pirate army-builders as a single pirate toy just repeated. Or maybe it just discounted the pirate army-builders.

Either way, still kind of a letdown that, aside from Cannonball, these probably won't be "pirates" so much as "Squadron X members repurposed as pirates". :|

Actually, that's a selling point for me, in a set I'm otherwise not too interested in. I do love having obscure Decepticons to add to my ranks of CHUG figures...
