The official Botcon page has been updated with vehicle mode and robot mode images of Animated Stunticon Motormaster. As was speculated, this figure is a repaint of the Animated Voyager Optimus Prime figure with a new headsculpt. The figure is painted black, purple and very light purplish grey color very similar to his G1 counterpart. His head is very blocky and square. Also an homage to the G1 figure whose head was surrounded by his trailer. We now have seen all figures in the box set for Botcon 2011. Post your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums!

That looks horrible. I had so hoped that my source was wrong. Hopefully it looks better in person. Really wish they had used Wreck-Gar.

It almost looks like his face is just painted onto the flat side of his boxy head. Really hope that's not the case.

I can see a head swap coming for this one.

That is soooooooo wrong looking....

But the body color is cool and all.

Ya, it does look like that. But I am pretty confident it just looks that way in the photo. The black on the sides of his face really obscure any depth.

^This x 1000

Wreck-Gar was the more appropriate mold to use. I know people whined about his neck, but if FP can do 2007's Thrust Wings, they could have changed that too.

Just like if we're getting that supposed Toxitron, I'd rather have the Wreck-Gar mold for that figure as well. It fits the name so much better with a garbage truck rather than a fire truck.

Maybe, the head on Motormaster would look a bit better if they would have sculpted the square outside portion as a helmet, rather than an actual part of the head. I dunno. :(

think the deluxe prime would've looked better. still say its to early for an animated botcon set you can still find all of these molds in stores & since theres very little remolding, they're not really all that special.

I think everyone was expecting a repaint of Animated Optimus Prime so it's no surprise. But I can't get past that head module remold. That box-looking remold is horrendous. :SICK:

Yup, just like myself and several others figured. So we've got, essentially, a Shattered Glass TFA Voyager Prime with a swapped head that just barely surpasses 2 dimensional face detailing, that makes the team leader for a combiner team that actually doesn't combine, and this is the exclusive set for the biggest annual convention devoted to Transformers held on the face of God's green earth? I'm just a touch underwhelmed. Granted, I still like it more than most of the DotM toys I've seen but I still think that, after some of our past Convention sets, that the bar would be just a little bit higher. Just my opinion, everyone has their own tastes and for those of you that like this years offering, I'm genuinely happy for you but this one just isn't quite my cup of tea.

Dear FunPub,

Thanks for the laugh. Good way to start my day. Keep up the funnies!

Kind regards,

When I look at the other figures in this set, their repaints/remolds make them look like entirely different characters. Motormaster looks like a Prime repaint that someone broke the head off of, and then stuck a lego block in there to look like a head.

This set is so very, very underwhelming, IMHO. I used to try and find these exclusives, but the recent ones just aren't worth it. I'm not even gonna go into box for a head Motormaster they've put out. I'm sorry, this is just horrible...

Wow......Motor Master really sucks. Figures they go the Optimus Prime repaint route. That head would look fine if it was on Wreckgar, but it just looks stupid on Primes body.
