Here is a mysterious bit of news. TF Prototype fansite has posted two pictures of a black redeco of Generations Arcee with :"Botcon sneak peaks! Do not miss! Botcon preview images are unofficial." as their only description of the product.

The pictures are below and you can instantly notice that the deco is reminiscent of the recent Combiner Hunters deco, also found below. We will keep you updated if we hear of any new development.

Whatever this thing is, it can't be a BotCon toy since Fun Pub doesn't (can't?) do toys for future non-BotCon/non-TCC mainstream Hasbro fiction.

I've honestly never heard this before, and I've been going to BC since 2000. Hasbro may have had no interest in doing the IDW repaint, so TCC decided to do it instead. Pete did mention several of these figures "should have seen retail"

Blurry picture/prototype. Nothing new

"Should have seen retail" as in previously, not forthcoming.

At the moment, this is based on a deco that doesn't presently exist yet.

I've always found Black and Pink to be a very attractive combo, especially on females...

All decos are forthcoming until released... Hasbro still has the option of releasing a Packrat, but they probably have no interest which is why TCC is doing it. IDW could have decided to update Arcee, Hasbro didn't want to do it and made a suggestion to TCC. Hasbro is constantly making suggestions to them. Maybe FunPub wanted to use the Arcee mold but were struggling with decos getting approved.
I think you're splitting hairs and trying to rigidly follow a pattern when there's not really one there... just because they haven't done it previously doesn't mean they can't/won't do it in the future. Never say never.

Arcee is changing her paint again? In fact, they ALL look different.

Has it occurred to anybody that maybe the deco of this toy came first, and they used it in Combiner Hunters as a reflection of this spiffy new toy?

Looks pretty cool. That colour scheme makes the mold look so much better (in car mode anyways. Robot needs better photos). Never cared for the marshmallow pink & white scheme.

Agreed, especially if it's a figure related to IDW's Arcee. That said I think it be a real shame if the final product doesn't have the transformer logo under her right eye, but I have a feeling it'll be too small and detailed to do. Maybe a repolable could be made instead.

On the cover, that sword looks awfully similar to Grand Scourge's...

As it was shown on the cover, it wasn't really news-worthy as a rumor, as any toy design in any media that suddenly has a different deco is fair game to be turned into a toy.
For the next time you submit news, include a source even if it a rumor. That source is proof of the news or can be used as a basis for that rumor. Hearsay (like "my friend told this") doesn't usually cut it.

That's usually the case with toys, as the comics are made to advertise them.

As for this being a BotCon item, I don't think so. The fact this deco will appear in the IDW comics in a main role says enough, as I've yet to see post-2004 BotCon toys get that sort of treatment.

There also the notion that it's too early for Fun Pub to use the Arcee mold. It just came out a few months ago at the end of last year, and they can't use new molds until they're at least close to a year old.

I think the rule is more like "when Hasbro and Takara have no immediate plans to use the mold during the time FunPub would be using it". We've gotten less than a year turnarounds.

That's a more exact way of putting it, but they did admit that using Prime Dreadwing for 2013 Megaplex was a last-minute break.

Didn't either Sabreblade or Jelze make a post about the club using molds this recent. Like the post was along the lines of "If it's a generations figure, the club can't use it until an unspecified time later" or something, then Pete@botcon posted the "not exactly" clip from independence day.
