The second big panel from BotCon 2015 Saturday, after the Hasbro Transformers products (summary here and display gallery here!) is the Transformers Collectors' Club panel, featuring Pete Sinclair, Brian Savage and Lanny Lathem.

The discussion revolved mostly around the Cybertron Most Wanted set released for the 2015 event, with artwork by Dan Khanna, and the confirmation that Oilmaster was indeed based on a Pretender prototype shown at Botcon '96. They also discussed some of the original names and incarnations of the original character the souvenir sets are paying homage to.

But the big news, you ask..? Before you head over to the Seibertron.com gallery here, read on below!

The next TFCC Free membership incentive figure is Universe Ramjet from the Armada Starscream mold which will be used for Armada Skywarp (both have new head sculpt) for subscription service!

"Human" Arcee and Rodimus figures to be made based on "Being Human" episode, individually carded on Joe style cards (these crossovers will be available to both clubs)!

Mid august order period (tentative) for subscription service 4.0, and 6th subscription figure will be revealed late July or August.

Hopping onto the Combiner Wars train, the Club will release Mayhem Maximus, made out of: Windsweeper, Ruckus (from Offroad), Spinister form Alpha Bravo (with Targetmasters), Needlenose from Firefly sculpt (with Targetmasters), and body component Bludgeon from Onslaught!

That's pretty rad.

That now makes me wonder how long it will take to get a GI Joe version of Rad. Why do I type these things?

Sub service really is the best place for a combiner. No five year wait to finish it this time!

wow, the combiner sounds like a mess. Lets have a combiner with a green, yellow, and burgundy torso, with blue, pink, purple and yellow limbs. Bludgeon Wind sweeper and Spinister feel like after thoughts to accommodate the combiner; especially considering that:

A. they already made a pretty good spinister out of DOTM Vortex
B. They're combining Bludgeons robot and shells in the worst way
C. Windsweeper really feels like padding.

The only two that make sense are ruckus because that's what the off-road mold was meant for, and Needlenose because him and firefly look similar. Though I think he'll be mostly blue in jet mode and not blue with a white body.

Individually, I'm looking forward to most of the Mayhems, but I don't need them to combine.

Still on the fence about Bludgeon though

Slightly off topic, in G1, onslaught kinda looked like Hotspot already with they're very boxy proportions, so i'm okay with it.

I just want that Ramjet, that's it. :x

And more Targetmasters? Let's add them to the list:

Needlenose: Sunbeam (purple) & Zigzag (yellow)
Spinister: Singe (black) & Hairsplitter (purple)

I like them all except Bludgon and the dumb human figures. I suppose they are saving Quake for the following year from the Brawl mold. I already have the trio in custom figures though. So while I intend to buy these, its not a hurry for me. But I am very excited about Windsweeper and Rukus. Crankcase already has a cool 3rd party figure so that would be another trio complete. Dont really need Armada Skywarp or Ramjet.

Um... the bludgeon? Suprised they aren't using the brawl to make the inner robot...

If by the tank you mean that new Brawl that was just revealed, that's a limb. I know that Bludgeon looks a little wonky, but in some strange way, it works.

I hope they can shrink that mold down enough to do Tracer and Blazemaster, but I'm sure that's already in the works

It's sure starting to look like that, doesn't it? That and they're going to run those Targetmasters into the ground as well. I'm personally already bored with them, and I only have the two that came with Scoop.

Interesting idea for the Subscription service, and a good use of it too. I really like the Armada Seeker repaints.

Well, count me in for another year of Club membership. I will happily take Ramjet, and maybe Skywarp if Thundercracker is down the pipe. I'd be more excited for Thundercracker, honestly; Armada Thundercracker was among my first Transformers as a kid, and he'd be the best nostalgic present ever.

Only Mahem Attack Squad members I like are Needlenose and Spinister (the latter due to MTMTE). I'm shocked they're busting Onslaught out so early, but... Bludgeon? What?

Couldn't care less about the GI Joe crossovers... Just not my thing. Cool to see it happen, though!

So with Mahem Maximus coming out, here's my question: 2017 = Nexus Prime or Wreckers a la Fall of Cybertron?
