BotCon 2014 sounds like an exciting, energetic, heart-pounding, thrill seeking event that'll blow all of our minds. (Hopefully, not literally.) :lol:
Two free cookies and a glass of milk if Don Rickles shows up? This is the worst time of the year for such thing. :KREMZEEK:

Auction Site Taobao has posted some images of what appears to be a BotCon 2014 Exclusive: Flamewar! A repaint of the Beast Hunters Deluxe Arcee Figure this is a character who was first introduced at BotCon 2005 as a repaint of another Arcee.

To see Seibertron's exclusive gallery of the original Flamewar click here and to see Beast Hunters Arcee click here.

Even more unusually Taobao also has what appears to be Arcee repainted as Transmutate. Unlike the recent TFCC version (the gallery of which can be seen here) this version uses the Robots In Disguise version of Arcee rather than the First Edition. A test model or something else?

Don't forget that at this point there is no guarantee that these are the finished designs or that they are genuine BotCon exclusives.

Hypothetically, the "PRiD" transmutate's legit. One question: "Why?"

Aw man, I was hoping all the souvenirs would be 3H toy homages only.

I guess we can now guess who the "rogue Decepticon" might be.

Great, I'll take... BOTH! Looks like I'm getting more fembots this year, even if they are based on the different molds of the same character ;)

Gosh dang it, I bought a Beast Hunters Arcee just to customize it into Flamewar, thinking there wouldn't be an official release.

Oh well, my only consolation is I have a chance to make it look better, and I suppose it'll be cheaper to have bought the thing and repainted it by hand than it would be to buy this aftermarket.

I WANT THAT FLAMEWAR RIGHT NOW!! :BOOM:

The Beast Hunters mold fits Flamewar to a T. Spikier and edgier than regular Arcee. Love it!!

Yeah, not convinced, we've seen pictures of other toys in Botcon bags this year that appeared to be legit but turned out to be a custom in a old bag.

There is no reason for the club to produce a second transmutate, it would cut into the sales of the first one.

The flamewar looks cool, but again, unlikely that they'd have two such similar molds, if the flamewar was made using the FE Arcee I'd be a lot more convinced.

I guess I'll just have to go to Botcon and find out for myself.

Something's odd, look at the polybags. Flamewar's says 2014 and the Transmutate's says 2013.

Flamewar looks decent enough.

So, BH Flamewar transforms from Batgirl's bike into...Yoko from Gurren Lagann???
ImageOr is there another iconic flame-bikini-top out there?

One thing we do know for sure: she ain't the free 12-and-under toy...

Now the new Transmutate is just all kinds of confusing. Could this be another case of a female TF being created via experimentation on a male character, but this time the gender switch was a side effect of curing Electro of gold-plastic-syndrome? Because when I picture her in opposition to FE-Arcee Transmutate, the smoother chest and wider wingspan just says Electro more than Transmutate. Go fig. Really curious to find out what the deal is here.

My guess is that it's something the Club were contemplating for BotCon last year but instead they used a different mold and made it the Club figure this year.

Flamewar makes a buttload of sense. Can't wait to see more of the other souvenirs.

Transmutate makes a buttload of "wat" and "why". I'd like to think that this was a concept that the Club was considering, but decided to ditch it.

Transmutate was always too weird a character IMO.

BUT Flamewar on the other hand: SO MANY TIMES YES!!! =P~

Flamewar does make a whole lot of sense. In fact, I'm guessing she'll be the Attendee Freebie figure like the BotCon 2005 one. Gotta stay consistent, you know? ;)

Now, Trans-Mutate is a whole different animal. Maybe either will be the Freebie, one as Flamewar herself, the other as a disguise? Either way, I want them.

That is, if everything is actually legit:

Don't forget that at this point there is no guarantee that these are the finished designs or that they are genuine BotCon exclusives.

It's true. Taobao is where we saw most of the 2010 BotCon figures early, but it's also where we saw that supposed Glyph from the Classics Bumblebee mold. So take everything there with a pinch of salt.

Man, i really love that Flamewar, but I've been really happy with the Legion figures of her and Arcee because they scale nicely with Deluxes. Not that EVERY bike should or has to, the Junkions come to mind as Cybertronan Motorcycles, but Flamewar and Arcee were cool, and can ride their rear wheel into battle.

I really hope that Flamewar happens. I want her.
