I spy two Windblades and Springer/Sandstorm mold, plus the obvious Dragon Zord/RID15 inspired Grimlock.

Remember how awesome Scorponok was last year? According to Pete Sinclair, something even more awesome's coming this year.

Unless we're getting goddamn Metrotitan from you-know-who, part of me doubts it can't get any better than Scorponok.

Scorponok was OK. Looking forward to seeing the reveals as always.

Looks like my idea of "the boss" (or Star Lord if we're still doing the GotG thing) as Hot Rod has a chance.

That's less Dragonzord and more Mecha Godzilla for sure, though I wonder if it'll be colored like Gigastorm.

In the second panel I see what looks to be TT Silverbolt, Heinrad and Rhinox the left and Starscream and Stun Gun on the right.

Third panel is hard to make out, but they were nice enough to write "Wolfang" on one. Next to him is probably Primal Prime. The rabbit is most likely Stampy. Don't know about the dog, could be Mini-Con Overbite or even AOE Steeljaw. Looks like RID 2015 Grimlock in there as well.

Panel four is kinda hard to make out aside from the two Windblades, Springer and the dog again.

Actually, that Godzilla-ish one is an old Grimlock/Godzilla hybrid KO. I remember seeing it back in the 90s at places like KB Toys and Toy Liquidators. I was a fan simply for the Godzilla-esque look.

Is anyone else seeing a tiny Beast Machines Cheetor in the middle of the 3rd panel? I thought it was Overbite at first, but it's a bit too angular and feline.

Sorry, Packrat would be AWESOME. I'd jump at that.

I think they've done an excellent job doing a ReDux of the earlier — often dated and extremely pricy — characters. I'm much more apt to dig out the new Shockaract than the delicate chrome version, for example.

Keeping some of these characters in play lets new fans get them for a decent price, plus it's also good for collectors since it doesn't let those old characters fall out of the limelight. Keep the Botcon "brand" and characters strong.

Not to mention it gives us some new story for our old characters. Also a win.

As for mixing universes in the same set, I think that can really hurt the aesthetics. The movie verse and animated have such a different look. I'd rather keep those out of a set, unless it's 100% those molds. (Add ons would be free game, of course. Those are a mixed bag.... literally! Ha ha ha.)

Well, that's what Axiom Nexus is all about. ;)

Yeah, I get it. This nexus is a hodgepodge... but from an artistic and design standpoint, it makes for a poorly-designed, not-at-all-unified toy set if they mix movie, animated, and more mainstream Generations-style toys.

Case in point... the two recent rescue box sets look okay in vehicle mode, but their robot modes look awful together. That chicken-legged copter is an abomination, IMHO.

Bringing it back to Botcon... that's why I felt the Animated set was such a home run, but Machine Wars was a bit of a mixed bag.

Yeah, if you think about it, the Nexus is really just there to try and justify the club putting whatever they feel like together in a set of exclusives.

But as a result, it means less restrictions for what the Club can do with the toys this year.

All that would matter for them now would be that the toys are fun and look good. And really, at the root of it all, isn't that what's most important? :)

The Nexus has been around for... 7 to 8 years, and this is the very first time it's used for exclusives (not counting Alpha Trion and Topspin).

Right. I fail to see how this refutes my point?

That Axiom Nexus isn't created from a marketing standpoint. ;)
