The 3rd reveal in the BotCon 2016 "Dawn of the Predacus" set is a member of the Tripredacus Council. General Ramhorn utilizes the upcoming Combiner Wars Brawl mold and includes a new head as well as an alternative weapon which is a drill. There are only two more figure reveals left. Could this also be a hint at a possible release of an upcoming member of the Technobots? Nosecone would sure go great with Scattershot.

Here's a legit question, were the tripredicus council actually red in the show or was that just the lighting/budget modeling? Because i think there was a shot or two when cicadacon i think was actually mostly grey. Also there was a bunch of red mood lighting.

I'm actually kind of skeptical about the drill to be honest: if Nosecone really is to be made from Brawl, I'd have expected a few more changes to the vehicle shell (the turret has an unsightly gap for starters), and FunPub is able to make new accessories for existing figures. Unless this is a half-and-half :lol: But that's a discussion for another thread.

On Ram Horn, using a drill tank suits him, even though adult Rhinoceros Beetles don't burrow (nor do Cicadas sting *hint hint*). Two more to go.

I like it. It's a good use of the drill tank remold.

On second thought, I'm quite disappointed that they chose to go with the colourings of a 30-second scene over that of the original toy.

If I remember correctly, it was stated somewhere that they council was supposed to modeled after the tripedacus figures, but they ran short on time and left them grey and indistinct; I agree that this combiner is going to look rather bland/interesting it 3/5 of it is going to be black and red;

Come to think on it - this will be the most cohesive combiner to date as far as propotions and color scheme go (so far) other than, maybe pirahnacon :-?

I went the reverse route. At first I was thinking, but this isnt Ramhorn, and then I totally gushed over the fact that we now have both an original toy AND a toy that homages the onscreen characters. While I am not fond of the two previous releases, this is really making me reconsider a few things. Still not sure if its worth the general price tag but consider me greatly intrigued.

Also, it helps that this is a mold I still havent seen yet so there is 0 mold fatigue. I am super curious about the combined head now and the torso.

PS: Also, I really disliked the original ramhorn toy as a kid.

Yeah, it left me, and, probably many a kid, scarred for life :BANG_HEAD:

Well, she hasn't been released, but yeah, I guess she would qualify too.

Oh shit, this could've legitimately worked as drillhorn. .

Forget Nosecone. I'm excited for Drillhorn. I think we've got all the molds we need for a new Liokaiser. Unfortunately, he'll be a 5 figure guys plus a Legends figure instead of a proper 6 figure Combiner, but I'm game if there are no official plans to do 6 deluxes as a Combiner in the future.

Both Computron and Liokaiser are welcome. The question here is: how soon can we see the other 2 left? I'm impatient :BOT:

Watch this:

This is not a Nosecone retool (yet). Instead, the Club split the cost of the new weapon tooling across two Budgets. Ladies and Gentlemen, the 7th TFSS4.0 figure, known to be a Deluxe, is the Wrecker Twin Twist.

Or, not.

Regardless, not feeling the colors, but I like the idea. Maybe in an actual figure it'll look better. Still down for more Decepticon Combiner Fodder.

Doesn't Twin Twist need two drills.

It's a little more complicated than that.

The three enter the room colored dark grey, but then appear red after turning on some red lights on the table. However, it's less as though the lights on the table are shining on the three to make them appear red, and more as though their bodies themselves change from dark grey to glowing red upon their touching the red table lights to turn them on, as we see the white overhead light swing and sway to shine directly on their bodies (particularly Ram Horn and Sea Clamp) without changing the red color. Their robes, however, are consistently silver regardless of any lighting.

In other words, the three are Color Changers. :P

I surely hope so, I really like the way this looks, I just wish the drill was a bit bigger

What want to see is a nosecone remolded from air raid sounds dumb until u flip air raid (in alt mode) uside down and flip the wings down
