I'll save my money for the Sub 4.0 set instead. Did they ever explain what the white Waspinator was based on? Or the Legends Micromasters for that matter?

Excellent! Picked up the Diaclone 2 pack, which is the only thing from this year's sets that really appealed to me; boxset included. A brand new-Pretender is pretty cool, but I had stopped collecting around the time the Pretenders came out, so no nostalgic appeal to me.

Hope everyone gets what they want!

Yea, those Triggercons look sick. I'm actually really excited to see how TFSS 4.0 turns out.

I like the looks of the Waruders, but they're too rich for my blood. Especially if I'm going to try to afford the Mayhems. And Grand Scourge. And...

My blood needs to be more expensive.

Godd@mmit, why do the waruders have to be SO expensive? I'm so completely torn, I need the set in my life, but I have no money for it, and I probably won't care about it after a few weeks Image

Allow me. ;)

This year's "Cybertron's Most Wanted" story originally led us to believe that it was just gonna be a story about five criminals from different walks of life brought together to save Cybertron from a big threat a la Guardians of the Galaxy, but it's much more than that.

Thanks to most of the exclusives and their true nature all being kept secret prior to the convention, it turns out that story is a full blown official crossover between Transformers and Diaclone! Yes, DIACLONE! :DANCE: The original pre-TF line in which all of the robots were piloted mechs, and involved a space war between the Diaclone team and the Waruder aliens.

The four Waspinator redecos represent four Waruder mech drones piloted by the four smaller Waspinators who represent the Waruder pilots. Here's their bio:
Image

What's more is that all four of the toys are based on preexisting decos:
  • The Parasite drone (black and purple) deco is based on the unreleased "Halloween Horrorcon Waspinator" that was to have been part of the 2003 Universe line before it was canceled.
  • The Mudfighter drone (yellow and orange) deco is based on the Beast Wars Fox Kids Transmetal Waspinator, and also happens to be the deco used by Shattered Glass Waspinator.
  • The Storm Rider drone (red and blue) deco is the only Diaclone homage of the four, being based on the Diaclone Warudaros figure's deco.
  • The Paralyzer drone (white and red/pink) deco is not directly based on its source material, but is instead loosely based on it, which is Bug Bite. But, there is also some inspiration from a real world species of wasp in this deco, so it's the only one of the four that stands out as being more unique than the other three.
Furthermore, the attendee freebie Skrapnel redeco Zaptrap is also a Waruder, being the leader of the invaders in the story. And like the others, Zaptrap is a mech piloted by Beet-Chit, a redeco of Chop Shop.
Image
Image

Note that the redeco of Reflector that comes with the toy is not named in the bio, but the comic itself refers to it by the name of Spy-Eye, and also shows that, even though it comes with a Waruder, it is not a bad guy, but is instead a member of the Diaclone team.

This brings us to the good guys of the Diaclone-themed toys: Burn Out (the black Skids redeco) and Lift-Ticket (the red Hoist redeco).
Image

Notice the little Targetmasters from the Scoop mold (Sgt. Hound) are pictured next to each one. They are the pilots of the two Diaclone mechs. Burn Out is piloted by Dia (a female, btw, thereby technically making Burn Out a fembot), and Lift-Ticket is piloted by Cline.
Image
Image

So yeah, they really went all retro and old-school with paying tribute to what came before the Transformers with this year's offerings. People kept asking for a Diaclone-themed BotCon, and they pretty much delivered on many fronts with these figures. 8)

What about the Generation 2 two-pack, the Galva Convoy figure, or the awesome pack of Marvel G1, Sunbow G1, and Animated Kreons?

I don't collect Kreons beisides those SDCC ones, Galva Convoy... while it looks cool i don't really care about it either... only thing I might want down the road would be Battletrap... The Club really can't make something that is going to please everyone, and that's ok cause last year I got 2 sets of the Box set... I initially loved everything (besides cannonball) but now all I have left from that set is the Scorponok and Devcon.

It isn't an accurate comparison, but with that color scheme I still think someone was looking at this guy when trying to come up with a more interesting pallet for "Bugbite". The colors are just too specific to pick by accident.

Plus, of all the pilots he comes with it's the orangey-yellow one similar to Windrazor's BotCon '99 counterpart Sandstorm.

Seems far too unlikely to be all a coincidence.

Hey guys, with all these unsold sets (first time ever by the way) I am wondering if the interest in Diaclone is just not there. It might be because nobody knows/cares about the accompanying fiction in comparison to the one surrounding the Transformers Brand.

But then I remember Malboro Wheeljack and how every was ecstatic about him. So I dont get it, are they 2 different things to enlicit two different kinds of demands? Because from where I stand I see Takara referencing Diaclone and it's all sold out, then I see Hasbro referencing Diaclone and ... crickets. What's the deal?

and @ Megatronus, I just KNEW you would be all over those troop builders!

Sooooo.... on the subject of botcon: Anyone have any Oilmasters, Megatrons, Steppers or Battletraps they are willing to part with at a reasonable rate? Like, a noticeable difference between your price and Ebays prices?
