So I guess this means two things....

1. We're going to see the Classics Seeker mold used for the ten millionth time, and the second time for Acid Storm.

2. We're finally going to get names for the yellow and blue Rainmakers since Acid Storm (the green rainmaker) was named several years ago.

Interesting...I wonder how they'll figure into the Botcon storyline.

We'll, your assuming they are using the classics seeker mold, when it might be safer to assume they are using the ROTF Dirge mold to fit in alongside Skywarp and Thundercracker in this set.

Well, crap. Looks like I have to get a Mirage to go with my Thundercracker. :/

Oh, well. I'd rather it be him than Sandstorm. And this means my Decepticons have one little Autobot prisoner to torture. :twisted:

Anybody who is attending willing to sell e their Mirage when they get it? I would love to have one since I missed out on the games of deception one.

We finally have a visual on the attendee freebie Starscream that's currently being given out at BotCon 2013 in San Diego. It's Machine Wars Starscream, based on the Hunt For The Decepticons Terradive figure mold.

It's currently available from a seller on ebay by the name of Almar Enterprises and is the first of many that will be posted on eBay. The prices tend to climb as time goes on, so if you don't have access to the figure, or don't have someone to pick it up for you, this might be your only chance to get it.

We have mirrored the pictures below for your convenience.

Too redundant. Besides, FP tweeted that the Troop Builder set would knock our socks off, and having the Rainmakers be based om MW Thundercracker and Skywarp wouldn't cut it IMO Also, Souvenir Sets do not have to follow the BotCon theme as SG Galvatron & Thundercracker have proven 2 years prior, with the con having an Animated theme.

Disliked this mold from the very beginning. Everything about the bot mode screams "Aquatic" and yet it's a flier. Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Could care less that they made this into a tribute to MW Starscream since I don't acknowledge the MW line as official TF canon anyways. Happy for those of you who got your hands on this and were looking forward to it but it most certainly isn't for me.

I... actually really like that mold as Starscream. Holy crap, please don't tell me I'm going to have to break down and order off of eBay or BBTS.... :BANG_HEAD:

I wonder if over the next few years, we'll see some more Machine Wars offerings from the TFCC, especially straight up repaint possibilities like Hubcap, Prowl, and Megatron, through club subscription premiums, yearly offerings, or even the subscription service, should that prove worth repeating.

Soooo if anyone is going to BotCon and can pick me up that Starscream, that would be great.

How much would people be willing to let something like that go for, reasonably speaking?

I'd pick him up for $30-40, tops. Anything more is too ridiculous by my standards.

This is BotCon. The toy prices are MADE of ridiculous.

Most of the ones I saw on eBay were going for $125 to buy it now, and a handful of auctions were all over $60.

Fortunately I snuck in early and found myself an acceptable price... albeit one you'd probably consider ridiculous. ;)
